Did anybody not watch OOTS? at all

Did anyone not bother watching TMNT OOTS at all? Not even illegally/for free?

I haven't seen it either.

I wanted to, I thought about it, then thought, "Nah, my time could be better spent doing something else.'

To each you guys' own, and while the major plot line sucks, I don't regret seeing the second. After the treatment of the Turtles in the first, I needed their better treatment in this one - as the stars and people in their own film rather than just as sentient props/plot devices - to cleanse the palate. The first just left me too depressed to want to leave it at that.

Finally did watch it just now.

I liked it a lot more than the first one.

Doesn't look like it. They still have it for the 2014, though.

And I did watch it, knowing it would be awful. Because I wanted something bad to watch and it was released around my birthday. So...I downed a margherita and went to it, expecting an empty house. But it was PACKED.

I wish I hadn't watched this abomination. Just as a movie it's arguably the worst TMNT movie ever and that says a lot.

I was just going to ask this very same question. I'll even throw in a Midnight Screenings Rant mention too.

Funny thing was I sorta wanted to go watch OOTS at a nearby drafthouse, but lost interest in that idea.

I even toyed with the thought of renting a copy from Red Box. Never followed up on that idea either.

Despite my having an actual miniscule interest, no I have not seen this film. I've never seen the other Bay produced film either, but the only thing I wanted to see from that was the elevator scene. lol

And you can just do that by watching it on YouTube. Or Nick's version, which is infinitely better.

I haven't watched it yet, time is very valuable - but I'm sure I will see it eventually.

I sure wish I didn't.

The first one sucks, but it was a decent night out at the movies. Some action, some laughs, and it didn't run too long. The production/script problems were plain as day, but I'd say between Bay's alien thing and whoever the hell wanted white Shredder, we got the best possible platinum dunes version.

OotS was total sh*t. And there was apparently no quarrel with what kind of crap it was intended to be. Small in scope, lacking in character motivations (at least Sachs wanted to get rich!), "fight" scenes for toddlers, coupled with inexplicable sexual stuff and swear words.

I used my free ticket that came with Beyond the Known Universe for that one. They deserved to lose all the money they did on that turd.
