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.
And other people wonder why you drink so much!

Kinda envy those who haven't seen it. That's two hours of my life I'll never get back.

I'm having a Bad Movie Night but I had to stop it not even a third of the way in. Now I'm watching Suicide Squad and this weird-ass clip show of a movie is somehow better

I did see it.

For a while I was completely against seeing it, even with morbid curiosity of how much of a mess it would be I was determined not to reward a movie I felt was poorly made. Strangely it tanking at the box office made me change my mind. As if I wasn't making a difference. I was able to catch it at the cinema.

I did think the movie tried to have more heart and get "back to the roots" than the first PD film.

It honestly felt more like the TMNT than TMNT (2007) did.

If by "roots" you mean Playmates old template for merch, then sure, they certainly tried to emulate that. It's not accurate to call it "roots" though, if it was trying to get back to the roots it wouldn't really take characters and concepts from other adaptations, or at least not highlight them.

Well I don't mean Mirage obviously, but the early hype Fred Wolf / live action movie camaraderie feel.
