You had issues with the costume? Man, that's the best they ever looked. Jim Henson at his finest and in his prime.
Yea, the OG Ninja Turtle movie still holds up well. It was the perfect blend of the classic elements of the cartoon that gave it popularity, combined with character and story elements of the gritty Mirage comics. It has charm, and it has darkness.
In fact, it too like the Nolan Batman movies takes a fantastical idea and characters and puts them in a functioning, contemporary, believable setting. Making it all sort of plausible.
