The usual suspects with me, Venus DeMilo and Image. The Next Mutation and Turbo Replacements In Space was both franchises at a low.


Outside TMMT? Anything that pretends to be Home Alone after Lost In New York.

Anything that is not Digimon Adventure that calls itself Digimon.

Pretty much just BayTurtles and "Answer The Call" (Ghostbusters 2016).

Very few things in entertainment annoy me to the point I wish they didn't exist. Most things are pretty tolerable.

Rise, and much of TNM. I feel like both (and possibly the Bay films, though they at least we're fun, IMHO) seriously damaged the credibility of TMNT as an "adult"/serious franchise.

Fant4stic. Horrible abomination of a comic book movie. Worse by far than even Catwoman, since at least that one was doing its own thing and had less to do with the character as we all know her. But the Four- Doom was just.... Ugh. There are no words for how horribly wrong that movie went, in even the first ten minutes.

While we're at it, ues, the "Ghostbusters" reboot. Let's just pretend that was a mass hallucination from a bad batch of LSD in the water supply.

Not much else I can think of, but I'm usually pretty tolerant of even "bad" movies, if I can at least enjoy them as cheesy schlock.

What the heck is Turbo Replacements in Space? The Next Mutation–Power Rangers crossover?

It felt like it just try-hard "edgy" and applying what made BSG 2004 work to something that was a good wholesome action yarn in previous incarnations

I wish I could pretend The Last Jedi and the sequel trilogy never existed, but it's hard when those movies torture me daily.

The bad Weezer albums definitely fall in this catagory for me, though. I can usually find OK things about most of the post Pinkerton albums, and in some cases (White) I appreciate them almost as much as I do B/P; but Raditude and Hurley are so f*cking awful that I refuse to listen to them. It's no wonder Weezer is considered a novelty act when they put out sh*t like that.

Thankfully, no one else pretends they exist either, at least in Raditude's case. Apparently some people tolerate Hurley to an extent.

I have posted it before and I will post it again, IF Luke survived I would forgive Rian Johnson and company for making Luke an out of character hermit with badass projections that suck away one's life force and casually throw away lightsabers and wasting a side plot on giving people on a Las Vegas planet hope that did not contribute anything. That is right, a living, breathing Luke Skywalker is all that I need.

Also, I did not know that Jingle All The Way had a sequel. Reads like it was swept under the rug and forgotten by the masses.


Good call on Who You Gonna Call! I did not wear my Ghostbusters shirt for more than a year due to that.

Hmm, musically speaking, I would like to pretend that Meat Loaf had stopped making albums post-vocal surgery. Because, much as I love the man's music- DAYUM! Such a huge loss of his once-great voice. Listened to the latest album after surgery, and while the lyrics and instrumentals are as good as ever, his voice was nearly ruined.

Bingo. Power Rangers, was my #2 after TMNT. That episode was the last episode I watched as an original fan of Power Rangers. I loved the idea of the two groups teaming up, a 90s kid dream, but it was the original six and the Turtles minus a girl turtle. Left a sore spot on me for years.

To be fair, he's also an old man. Surgery or no he probably wouldn't still making records like "Bat Out Of Hell II" anymore.

I'm in the minority that prefers II. They're both great records and "Bat I" has the "hits", but II is altogether a much better record.

I agree about Bat II, but up until the surgery, his voice was as good as ever. The previous albums like Bat III, Welcome to the Neighborhood, and Hang Loose, Teddy Bear proved that. There were a couple of others too, but I can't recall the titles offhand.

Either way, he is Legend.

I'm not what you'd call a "huge fan", but I own a few records and it's a "Must-Listen" whenever one of his songs comes on.

I think I once played Bat II on a loop for like three days when I was a teenager.
The line "If you want my views of history, then there's something you should know/The three men I admire most are Curly, Larry and More" is a real hidden gem. Everybody knows "I Would Do Anything For Love", but that entire album is just the perfect balance between overwhelmingly bombastic and empowering and insufferably pretentious. Just the way I likes it!

Wow, no one else feels passionately about Weezer. It illustrates my point beautifully.
