    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2014

    ★½ Watched 09 Mar, 2015

    When I was a kid, I dressed up as Leonardo for Halloween. THREE TIMES. So I take no pleasure in joining the herd and crapping on this movie. Even by typical Ninja Turtles standards, this is incredibly stupid stuff, not helped by also being lifeless and ugly.

    I cannot fully express how much I hated this movie and how painful it was to sit through. It's supposedly a comedy, but none of the jokes are funny. I chuckled once at the very beginning for an Ayn Rand/Fountainhead joke from Jon Favreau and at the very end when Melissa McCarthy is talking to the kids. That's it.
