Everything GREAT About Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of The Shadows

I understand that the PD films are not popular here, but I'm just going to go ahead and post this because they are some things I actually did like about this film.

Yes I got both movie soundtracks and they're the best.

So many things to enjoy though I do admit the final battle with Kraang was a bit rushed.

this film was not good. Shredder was useless Baxter was Useless they made Casey Jones one of the coolest characters ever into a whiny pussy cop. instead of a badass street vigilante. Kraang was to forced in the movie. The only good things were the turtles and bebop and rocksteady in the movie .The only good thing that came from these movies is they did so horrible at the box office now maybe a competent studio and director can do the turtles justice.

Krang was somehow too forced AND too underused. I think the only attention he got before release was the Superbowl commercial, but there were hardly any interviews with Brad Garrett, only one toy that I can think of off the top of my head, and only two scenes - in which all he did in the first was be a plot device fairy.

Honestly, the only good thing I can say about OOTS, is that it kept Brad Garret with a job.

And I think he did a pretty good job with it and even sounded like he was having fun. It's no wonder he had Pat Fraley's blessing. But other than that. Pttthp.

I don't think they're great movies, but okay at worst and are certainly entertaining enough. To be honest, I don't really get the hate.

I remember when this guy did this for the 2014 flick...

He started by praising the Paramount logo into music, which should have let me know I was completely wasting my time. Then he literally said "paramilitary Foot Clan is cool".

He went too far with that one.

It's funny cause they takes the CinemaSins format and add "Because liking things is more fun than disliking things" on his page.

So do they just lift the whole video and adds praise instead of sins?

I really liked the video. He has some good points in my opinion.
The music is cool (I really enjoy the soundtrack), Bebop and Rocksteady were great fun, the comradery between the Turtles was in-character and the Kevin Eastman cameo was awesome, just to name a few.
Yeah, I like the movie. It is a live-action-movie remake of the classic cartoon and in my opinion it works that way.

So I made it 3 and a half minutes. Doubled my effort from 2014. At this rate, I'll be able to stay halfway through when he makes his video for the sequ.... HAHAHA.

So he gave a point for he ****ing Paramount logo again and said that this was the most realistic version of "the Krang" we've seen yet. No **** sherlock.

Fair praise is fine, I was able to cough up a few good things to say about the film despite mostly hating it. But this is clearly a troll video (for reasons stated by 'nines).

Stop. All you do in this section is shadow/bait him. It's creepy.

Watchable, but when a lot of the "great things" comes down to single nouns, eh. Turtles are the best part of it yet an awful lot of time is given to other things... How that work.

At least for the Paramount logo this time they changed the stars into... dramatic pause... ninja stars. Though agree I'm not sure a production/distributor company logo is worth a point.

While some parts of the video are obviously meant to be light-hearted joking (like the "win" points for "honesty," "teamwork," etc.), I think the review made some fair points.

While not a masterpiece, I thought, after seeing the movie that it was a fun ride with classic characters. Bebop and Rocksteady were much better than the original cartoon iterations, IMHO, and most of the other ones worked.

I really don't get how this's a crime against the franchise. TMNT isn't Shakespeare or anything and has had a silly, "just for the crazy fun of it" side for a long time.
