TMNT: Out of the Shadows (David Green, 2016) Movie

Discussion in 'Entertainment Forum' started by bradsonemanband, Jun 3, 2016.

  1. Release date: June 3, 2016

    The turtles face a new challenge when Shredder escapes from custody and joins forces with Baxter Stockman, a mad scientist who plans to use a serum to take over the world. Along for the ride are Bebop and Rocksteady, two dimwitted henchmen who provide plenty of muscle. Luckily, the turtles have their own allies in April O'Neil, Vernon Fenwick and Casey Jones, a hockey-masked vigilante. As the pizza-loving heroes prepare for battle, the notorious Krang also emerges to pose an even greater threat.

  2. Has anyone here seen this yet? I'm thinking about going to see it tonight! I'm mostly just pumped for Bebop, Rocksteady, and Kraang finally being in a movie.

    Saw it the other day. It's stupid. Constant fan service does not make for a good movie. The Turtles are done a little bit better than the first, that's probably the only good thing.

    This looks exactly how I would picture a Michael Bay movie for children.
  5. Saw it lastnight. It was a ridiculous movie. Horrible writing. BUT I loved all the nostalgic stuff! I was entertained the whole time. Krang, Bebop, and Rocksteady were perfect. Their characters were just like the cartoon, so that was fun. If you're on the fence to see this, go on discount day, take a couple shots of liquor, bring a few friends, and just have fun with it.

    I didn't mind that first one but this was painful.

    I still haven't watched the first one but I might do that this weekend and see the new one sometime. The trailer looked fun and I like Stephen Amell

    Did Tyler Perry turn into a fly?

    Oh man Tyler Perry is Baxter Stockman? That's hilarious

    Amell was a complete miscast. But I'm not sure if he's to blame or that his character is so horribly underwritten.
  12. No, unfortunately

    lmao watched this last night because me and a friend wanted to laugh over something dumb, it was more often than not enjoyably bad. funny how bay would find these ostensibly lesser projects to hand off to someone in his camp and they end up being less of a pain in the ass to watch than most of his own creations. we both were kinda on board with it the first 7-8 minutes before they had megan put on the schoolgirl getup and it took a nosedive from there

    and yeah, very much grasping at the nostalgia straws. not as terrible as the one before i guess

    Die rad.

    I thought this movie was a great 180 turn from the first one Bay did. At least it had Bebop, Rocksteady, and Casey Jones. I was all for a sequel.

    Weird to have a thread for this lame series bumped, but while it's here, I'll remind y'all that the first two TMNT films are dope & on Netflix.

    And, y'all should also go read the old black & white Mirage Studios comics that launched this IP; it's an awesome product of the 80s black & white boom in that industry & features a lot of really good talent. I'm not as into the current IDW run, but some people do really dig it, so if you like modern mainstream comics, go do that, too, I guess. They did put out a Casey & April miniseries by Mariko Tamaki & Irene Koh, & the current arc is by Sophie Campbell, who are all dope creators.

    The flex of them saving Baxter Stockman for a sequel that didn’t happen will always be funny to me. It’s amazing they haven’t made a decent Turtles movies since the early ‘90s.

    the one from 2007 wasn't terrible, if memory serves

    the one from 2007 wasnt a real TMNT movie. It was a cartoon and didnt even feature shredder. Thats on par for TMNT3 Turtles in Time lol. Dont get me wrong, I was there opening night 2007 and enjoyed it, but wasnt nearly as fun as the live action.
    Last I heard Bay was still involved with making a sequel, but it would be a series of some sort on Netflix.

    I would rather watch the TMNT crossover w/ Power Rangers from the 90s, w/ Venus de Milo in the cast, than I would pretty much any non-comics adaptation since then.

    When the Bay films first came out, I didn't hate the character design as much as most people (even though I still never cared about the films themselves, lol), but like... At the risk of sounding like a corny purist or whatever, those practical effects are so much truer to the heart of what made this Eastman & Laird comic originally work. CGI just doesn't have that same energy.
  20. I just want them to reboot this:
