Turtles, Pizzas & Robots – Movie Review for TMNT

Movie watchers, let’s stop complaining about Michael Bay’s movie versions of our childhood cartoons. I’m not a full out fan of Michael Bay but movies are just movies. We’re here to escape our realities and watch crazy stuff on the big screen. With that in mind, I didn’t have much of an expectation for TMNT. What can you say, they are teenage mutant ninja turtles! Come on now, NINJA TURTLES. I wasn’t looking for Oscar material. I had the same low to no expectations for all the other action movies rolling out this summer. Surprisingly, I liked it.

As a video producer, I felt the camera didn’t have to sway so much during the actions sequences. It was very dizzying, just like all his other movies. You miss a lot, if you have to turn away to regain your barrings. The movie was a little over an hour and half. Very short for today’s standards. Megan Fox portrayed a good April O’Neil. There was plenty of funny parts throughout the movie to keep me laughing, especially with Michelangelo (in the movie referred to as Mikey).

To that end, my final opinion: It was OK

Side joke, this is really Shrek vs Transformers.

Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians_of_the_GalaxySorry I am not a writer, but I just wanted to share my thoughts on the movie.

Marvel does it again, this time with Guardians of the Galaxy. Since the first trailer was released I was hooked and by the second trailer I was sold that this will be a great movie. So, yep walked out the theater with a big smile, because it met all my expectations and more. Truthfully I didn’t know who Chris Pratt was until this movie and he delivered, playing a amazing Star-Lord. While he was amazing the other cast filled in perfectly too, the chemistry between them was hilarious, silly, fun, and satisfying to watch on the big screen. This movie has a lot of funny moments, it has a great pace, and the amount of action is on point.

  • VFX 9/10: I try to stay away from 3-D most of the time, but I am so glad I saw this movie in 3-D because the galaxy/world, this Marvel team put together did a perfect job of getting you truly immersed and it’s not painful for the eyes.
  • Cast 9/10: Yes, even with Dave Batista playing Drax the destroyer.
  • Music/ Soundtrack 10/10: Who doesn’t love great oldies, mixed in with fun space action in a beautiful made galaxy, Amazing!
  • Story 9/10: Cant wait for part 2

Well, this is just a random post/blog, I just wanted to share some of my thoughts about the movie. Not really trying to get too much in depth.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Thank You,

Panthong Manichanh.
