    You know this movie wasn't as terrible as the internet would lead me to believe. I mean it wasn't great and I'm not sure I'd even call it good. But it was ok.

    I feel like they couldn't figure out what this movie should be, it's trying to be emotional but also has random comedy scenes and musical numbers.

    Still love seeing more Ms. Marvel though.

    This was a super entertaining movie and the animation is top notch. The cast is great and they seemed to work well with each other.

    I do have one nitpick and it's probably just because I'm old and have enjoyed TMNT since the original Eastman & Laird comics. I don't see why they needed to change the origin stories so much.

    So the I can say it's certainly better than the theatrical release, but it's a totally different movie with a different tone.

    Only a few critiques:

    First the pacing is all over the place. I'm guessing due to working with the scenes that were already shot and not being able to shoot that much more.

    Second, there is so much fan service I thought for a few minutes that I might drown in it.

    But overall I enjoyed it. Good job Zach.

    If Bob Odenkirk doesn't show up in a John Wick movie it's a fucking travesty.

    This is almost a grittier Wick, Odenkirk plays the role with less timed perfection and more savage "averageness".

    Bonus star for RZA.
