simpsons-clown-in-the-dumps-krusty-topper

A Positive Look at the Ninja Turtles Movie [REVIEW]

tmnt-2014-movie-topper

I am going to try and tackle this one from all sides. Mirage, Nickelodeon, IDW…you name it. If you are a fan of the Mirage Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) you will walk out of the movie liking the teamwork and violence in it.

If you are a Nickelodeon comic fan, then you will like Michelangelo… that’s it. If you are an IDW fan, this is as close to perfect as you can ever hope to imagine. With that in mind, I will explain the reasons why I absolutely loved this movie. … Continued &#187

transformers-age-of-extinction-optimus-dino-bot-web

This has been my favorite Transformers movie YET! I went in expecting the worst, after seeing the changes made to Grimlock, but walked out completely entertained. This new series builds on the first trilogy and does it in a way that you don’t have to watch all of the movies again. But if you watched Dark of the Moon again, it wouldn’t hurt.
