There's also the fact that OOTS helped keep Brad Garret in his acting career. I've always liked him as an actor. Even if his Krang wasn't all that.

Everything was better, to be honest. Doesn't make it a great movie, but its an improvement across the board.

-Better color palette
-Better action scenes
-Casey's casting was good (wasn't written well, though)
-Bebop and Rocksteady were fun for what they were
-More focus on the Turtles
-Consistent tone; the director at least knew what kind of movie he wanted to make and stuck to it

And yet they barely hyped either of them?

You have to admire OotS. It's like TPTB went around and rounded up every sh*tty element of McTMNT™ they could think of into one big bucket, and then when it all ended up being a resounding, huge failure...

You just reminded me of one thing that really is better about it than it's predecessor:

It will forever serve as a reminder that the FW is not a greatly beloved timeless classic and TMNT can't rely on blindly emulating it for success.

For the record, I'm just answering the topic question. Between the both of them, I hate them equally since one movie has stuff that I sorta like but everything else I despise. One has less screentime with the turtles and a convoluted plot but at the very least, violent action scenes while the other has more time with the turtles but with no plot in exchange for random current events and "action".

Maybe star in a better movie? One that wasn't a train wreck in the wakes?
