So, I'm watching a Ninja Turtles movie and I just need to say, varying degrees of quality aside, I love just about all of this franchise. All the movies, too, even the Michael Bay-produced. Well, "love" is too strong a term for some of them - but I can mostly find merit in every entry. Most of the series, save for the very first movie, are guilty pleasures for me.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990) - Classic superhero origin tale before they were all the rage. Despite the now-goofy 90s special effects and the over-the-top premise, TMNT 1990 delivered a really gritty, decently violent revenge tale dressed up in the superhero theatrics.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze - My personal favorite TMNT movie, even if the first one is the generally "better" film. This one was goofier and more comedic, but that's probably why my 90s childhood self loved it. By and far the more iconic ending, too.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III - Easily the worst TMNT adaptation, period. Took all that was great about the turtles and effed with it. The lack of urban city setting really hurt it, as did the horrible recreation costumes. It's a shame that this was the last of the 90s films, and that they didn't get one more shot at a quality movie with the more superior costumes. I will say, the design of the samurai turtles do hold a pretty high spot in the realm of my nostalgia, though.
TMNT (2007) - Pretty forgettable movie, honestly, but absolutely not bad the way TMNT III was. This was a standard, by-the-number animated Turtles adventure but still perfectly worthy of technically being a successor to the first two TMNT 90s movies.
Turtles Forever (2009) - This was a traditionally-animated 25th Anniversary celebration movie where the 3 TV animated versions of the Turtles mash-up and take on a new threat, with the usual threat of Shredder looming. This was actually really fun, and a lot better than TMNT 2007 when it comes to animated features. It's a classic hand-drawn cartoon adventure.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) - This one comes pretty close to TMNT III as far as "awful" goes, but for some reason I find myself entertained by it whenever it's on. For that reason alone, it ranks above III. Not nearly as offensive as the Michael Bay Transformers movies, while still just a loud action movie. Though Transformer-Shredder was absolutely garbage, as was the whole "white Shredder" subplot that was very blatantly reshot to include "normal Japanese Shredder" too.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows - Now, I'll make an actual argument that this is an "alright" movie, as opposed to 2014, which was just straight up bad. With much more comic-accurate villains (as opposed to 2014 that tried too many change-ups), it left the writers with more room to flesh out a whacky story. The end result is a somewhat-bloated CGI spectacle that plays a lot more like a big-budget 80s cartoon episode than it does a "gritty reboot" like 2014. If you turn your brain off, this is a perfectly fine, fun movie to enjoy here and there.

I will admit that the most recent TMNT series' quality was too poor to warrant continuing the series as-is, despite the fact that I don't hate the two movies. Out of the Shadows honestly leaves off in a spot where they could have hit a home-run with a properly-written third entry, but neither 2014 or OotS earns that third entry. Really looking forward to the inevitable re-reboot though, because for some reason, even with the shoddy consistency in quality, the TMNT franchise is something I can't just drop cold turkey.

OotS was cool. Finally a "live action" movie with classic villains. Not sure why TMNT always generic'd up the baddies so awfully or went with sissies like Tokka and Rahzar over Rocksteady and Bebop. Weak sauce.

> Bebop and Rocksteady were planned to be included in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze. Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird objected, partially due to having to go through legal clearances for the characters, resulting in the characters being replaced by Tokka and Rahzar.

The Ritual (2017) - 6/10

Pretty decent, although it takes a little too long to get going. They really could have shortened the whole opening bits leading up to them going on the journey to the woods. Once they get past that, it stays pretty interesting for the most part. They do a good job of retaining tension without resorting to too many BS jumpscares. I was really hoping it was going somewhere by the end and were going to come full circle about confronting fear which seemed to be a bit of a theme, but ultimately it went some other direction and left me mildly confused about the end. For what its worth, I thought it was mostly good, even if the beginning and end left a bit to be desired.

The Post - 5/10

Half of the film was an interesting spy-thriller about sneaking top secret documents and getting them to the press to reveal the lies about Nam and Nixon and crap, and the other half was a boring as piss story about the Washington Post as a company and the struggles of rich people smoozing with politicians and crap. I can see how it sort of intertwined but they really should have leaned more towards the leaking documents and fighting Nixon in the courts and crap. The whole film felt like a half-hearted Oscar-bait and personally, I thought Meryl Streep did a poor job of acting, and both her and Tom Hanks looks like they were wearing bad wigs. In all fairness, it didn't seem like Hanks was giving it his all either, but at least his side of the story wasn't boring crap. The film was passable as a whole.

Theme seemed to be losing innocence: realizing the world is a brutal place and survival is not guaranteed. You will be hurt beyond belief and experience great loss. But that is life. Fight through it. Realize everyone experiences the same.

Really well done movie. Apparently there was a post-credits scene, but I will have to wait a while before seeing it I suppose. Jesse Plemons stole the show.

My favorite sitcom is Friends, by far. You may like How I Met Your Mother, it basically has the same style as Friends. I personally think it dropped in quality every season. Big Bang Theory is fantastic though

Jumanji - 6.5/10

This would be my first time ever watching this, so I'm coming in clean and with no nostalgia and yeah I can see where people who watched this as kids would definitely be able to look back on it for sure. I think it had some minor issues with pacing and characters, but overall was mostly enjoyable. I couldn't shake the feeling that it was all just an elaborate setup to sell a theme park ride though. Just something about it felt a little by-the-numbers. David Alan Grier was the show stealer for me, although Robin Williams was on key as always. I enjoyed it...and now onto the at the dollar theater 9pm showing lol. I don't have high hopes for it.

Logan Lucky-solid 8/10. Good stuff, you should watch it....unless you're a jerk that likes Big Bang Theory or How I Met Your Mother................Your ice cream man-ass might get offended because it's not super crapty.

Whiplash- 8/10- Solid film, didn't really care for the open ending. I got really sick of these indie-open-endings in the mid to late 2000s. If you're going to make a film deliver your point, I'm not part of your film crew. Spit it out you lazy ass jerks.

No TV show's gonna snap you out of it for real. Soon as the credits roll and you're out of things to watch, you're still stuck with yourself. Go talk to someone. Anyone.

I'm well educated in mental health and have lots of resources. Don't worry. I was just looking for something fun like that. It helps as a coping tool. Thank you for the concern though.

Also, just as a side note, I wouldn't so easily dismiss the lasting power of laughter. Although it does not substitute for therapy, etc., it actually has one of the most profound effects on depression compared with other coping tools and can have a more lasting effect than you'd expect.

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on netflix is great, just give it a few episodes and it will grow on you. Titus is an amazing character.

Silicon Valley is great for a newer comedy show,

Of course there's Community as well:

What about some British shows since you might not have seen those?

Peep show is one of my favs, always great for a quick laugh,

Then there's Green Wing, which is a great comedy set in a hospital.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle - 5.5/10

Well, it wasn't bad but it wasn't particularly good either. It was alright. I think they traded the charm and tone of the original for something a little more shallow and silly. The characters worked for the humor but something was lost as well with the tone and depth. Rather than an adventure, it felt more like a jungle action movie like Rambo but with a team. Too many motorcycle baddies and machine gun henchmen, etc. It's definitely amusing in parts and for the most part, but yeah...it just felt really empty by comparison. It's the candy bar to the original's hamburger. I feel like there were some missed opportunities like with the Jumanji game itself - this is a Sony movie; it should have been a PS1 with a PS1 Jumanji game disc, not some random bo-bo Atari-looking console...and the driver of the jeep in the beginning of the game; he really should have been Brandon Frasier. It almost even feels like they cast a look-alike, but it would have been so much better of a 90's nod to put him in that role. I also think the nod to Robin Williams could have been more meaningful than just "oh here's his character's name, we said it, now move on"...and when they got back and the one guy who was stuck in the game met them, they should have got Kirsten Dunst to be his wife; not necessary but it would have had some kind of payoff tie-in. Again, in the end, it's decent. I can't be mad at it because I don't carry the nostalgia of the original having only seen it yesterday, but I can see where it might piss off fans of the original.

Thor Ragnarok-

8/10. I loved the soundtrack- Wes Anderson 8-bit vibes.

The Led Zeppelin sneaking in there was kind of off, but it worked.

"We come from the land of the ice and snow

From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow

Hammer of the gods will drive our ships to new land

To fight the hordes and sing, and cry

Valhalla, I am coming"

The story was cool, nice nod to Norse myths. The Jeff Goldblum stuff got a bit carried away. This is probably one of my favorite Marvel flicks yet- I liked ant man just a bit more. Definitely a must see for action / sci-fi / fantasy fans.

This show is basically season 1 of Lost. It sets up a million interesting mysteries and gives you more questions than answers by the end. Since the show is heavily based on time travel, it feels inevitable that most of the unanswerable questions will be wrapped up with some cop out time travel thing rather than ever explained. I'm going to wait until the series is over to see if I should bother going down another hole like this.

Apparently he had a stroke during filming (you can kinda see it in his face). That's why there wasn't much of him in it....

Damn, I didn't know that. I hope he recovered good. He was my favorite on the show.

It was more Psych, which is always good, but I just wasn't feeling it.

Watched Dark Tower and it wasn't nearly as bad I was expected based on all the internet rage. I actually liked it although I don't know the source material other than it seeming really familiar...like I had seen some version of this in the 80's or 90's.

I normally dislike overly long movies that don't use the extra time well. But this is one movie that felt like it was too edited down...the world seemed to have a richer backstory than the move got into.

Thanks I appreciate it.
I really wish he was in more stuff. Hopefully they do another Psych movie.

Black Panther 7.8/10

liked it, not too long, no plot holes that were a distraction, a fun movie treat
during spring break visit from the U.

better than WW origin story for me, not as engrossing as Capt America or Iron Man origins

found the armored rhinos dorky, but the Bucky literal emergence great!

I haven't seen this yet. I'm assuming it's just based on The Gunslinger though, or maybe it's a mix? I've personally only read The Gunslinger.

Nevermind. I looked it up. It's not.

I listened to all the audio books, there is ALOT of back story to this franchise, way more than what could ever be covered in a 2.5hr long movie. I think that this one is just supposed to take place in an alternate universe or something like that.

It's bad as a representation of the King epic.


At the end of this film- Jake is alive and the man in black is dead, the dark tower is destroyed. The only really recognizable scene from the book occurred in the demon possessed house. No crew of misfits ( I particularly wanted to see the schizophrenic angry black lady) no talking beaver friend, no crab monsters. Just a story about a cowboy and a boy quickly killing a creepy sorcerer and breaking the tower. Awful.

They started adapting a unrelated, novel-accurate Dark Tower TV show while they were mid-production on the movie. I think that says enough.

You should check out Galavant if you like Timothy Omundson, he is amazing in it, especially season 2.

Also just realized your username....that's too much of a coincidence, you have to watch it now.

The Tick (Season 1) - 8.5/10

Fudging awesome. The funniest slapstick superhero project to come about in a long, long time. Easily the best "version" of the Tick, and the Amazon Prime-level effects only add to its hilarious charm. They definitely didn't take this too seriously, and it worked out incredibly. Peter Serafinowicz as The Tick was the perfect casting that I would have never seen coming in a million years.

I highly recommend this show for its silliness and charm, and its ability to be entertaining without taking itself so gosh darn seriously like so many other superhero shows. Thankfully it's already been renewed for a Season 2... gotta see how Walter got so good at fighting blindfolded.

Ah, ok, now I get all the disappointment about Dark Tower. Sure seems justified haha.
