Ranking The Teenage Ninja Turtle Movies

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are among my fav childhood cartoons and movies. I first got introduced with the turtles through the first film, which came out in 1990 and I watched it later in the year. The first two movies became part of my frequent movies to watch over the years and I still enjoy them a lot. Here is how I rank the six films that have come out. I understand that there is another one but I haven’t yet watched it.

  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
  • TMNT
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II : Secret Of The Ooze
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

Replicas

Replicas is a 2018 American science fiction thriller film directed by Jeffrey Nachmanoff, and written by Chad St. John, from a story by Stephen Hamel. The film tells the story of a neuroscientist who violates the law and bioethics to bring his family members back to life after they die in a car accident. It stars Keanu Reeves, Alice Eve, and Thomas Middleditch.

William Foster and Ed Whittle are biomedical research scientists working for Biogeny Corporation in Puerto Rico, attempting to transfer the mind of a dead soldier into an android with superhuman strength, codenamed Subject 345. Foster specializes in synthetic biology and mapping of the mind’s neural pathways, while Whittle’s speciality is reproductive human cloning. Foster successfully captures the soldier’s neural map and transfers it into the android’s synthetic brain, but the experiment fails when the soldier recoils in horror at the android body and destroys it, killing himself again. Foster’s boss Jones warns him that if he cannot get Subject 345 to work, the company’s shareholders will shut the project down.

Bill takes his family – wife Mona and three children Sophie, Matt, and Zoe – on a boating trip but they have a terrible accident in the storm and only Bill survives. Struck with grief he calls Ed and they take the bodies to Bill’s house. As you can guess, he gets Ed to steal some equipment from Biogeny and clones the bodies for Mona, Sophie & Matt and has their neural pathways inserted into the bodies. Unfortunately they only have options for 3 bodies as they only have 3 pods and Bill has to pick 3 from his family members and he chooses to skip the youngest, Zoe. After several days it works and the family lives their lives unaware that they are clones and that their memories of Zoe have been erased from their minds. But Jones finds out and along with some secret service men arrive at Bill’s house. Mona is aware that her child Zoe is not with them and freaks out a bit but the family need to escape.

Sold out by Ed, Bill and his family are caught by Jones and his men and brought to the lab at night. Foster uploads his own mind into Subject 345, who kills the henchmen and mortally wounds Jones. The two Fosters make a deal with Jones: he can live in a cloned body and become rich by working with Foster-345, selling clone transfers to wealthy people looking for a second life. Meanwhile, Foster is able to retire in peace with his family, including the newly cloned Zoe.

The acting is a bit off for this film and the CGI is laughable for 90% of the time. It seems like a movie where every dialed in their performances. Reeves appears to be going through the motions and isn’t very interested until towards the latter half of the movie. The same could be said for the rest of the cast. The movie does seem to be rushed. I give it a 6 outta 10!

  • So a couple of weeks have gone by since the end of the Infinity War; the movie starts with Clint Barton, who was retired from the Avengers, losing his family after Thanos snaps his fingers and wipes out half the living creatures in the universe. His wife and two daughters turn to dust while they are having a picnic. Clint becomes a ruthless vigilante, until Natasha comes to recruit him back.
  •  Carol Danvers rescues Nebula and Tony Stark from deep space. They return to Earth and join the remaining Avengers—Natasha Romanoff, Bruce Banner, Steve Rogers, Rocket, Thor, and James Rhodes.

  • 5 years later and the word is still trying to recover from the devastating event. Scott Lang escapes the  quantum realm and meets Romanoff and Rogers at the Avengers’ compound. Lang explains living through a duration of five hours instead of five years, theorizing that the quantum realm can allow time travel. The three ask Stark to help them retrieve the Stones from the past so they can revert Thanos’ actions in the present, but he rejects them out of fear of losing his daughter, Morgan. Stark relents after reflecting upon the disintegrated Peter Parker and works with Banner—who has merged his intelligence with the Hulk’s body—to stabilize travel in the quantum realm.

Rhodes returns to the present with the Power Stone without Nebula, due to the latter’s cybernetic implants interfacing with those of her 2014 self. Through this connection, the Thanos of that time captures present-day Nebula and sees her memories. He then secretly sends 2014 Nebula to the present.
  • With all the Infinity Stones collected in the present, Banner uses them to restore those whom Thanos disintegrated. 2014 Nebula uses the time machine to transport Thanos and his ship to the present day, and he attacks the Avengers’ compound.

It’s that’s fucking good.

Extinction (2018)

Extinction is a 2018 American science fiction thriller film directed by Ben Young and written by Spenser Cohen and Brad Kane. The film is about a father who has a recurring dream/vision about the loss of his family while witnessing a force bent on destruction. The film stars Lizzy Caplan, Michael Peña, Mike Colter, Lilly Aspell, Emma Booth, Israel Broussard, and Lex Shrapnel. It was released on Netflix on July 27, 2018.

Peter, an engineer working in a large factory, is suffering from nightmares and visions of an alien invasion in which he sees a lot of people being gunned down on the streets as several small spaceships descend upon the city. His work life and family life is being affected so on the suggestion of his wife, Alice, he visits a hospital for psychiatric help. However while waiting a fellow visitor tells him of very similar visions, which makes Peter leave before he can see a doctor. Later after a dinner party at their swanky apartment, Peter sees the same ships descending and then the attack begins.

Alien soldiers, from the ships, in black rubber suits with green glowing patches and blackened out full face helmets start attacking the people on the street killing several. The soldiers start storming the buildings in search of people. Peter & Alice  manage to barricade their apartment after telling their two young daughters to stay in the room. A soldier barges in and is about to shoot Peter when their youngest daughter distracts the soldier enough for Peter & Alice to get the upper hand. The family of four escape down the stairs and head to the underground tunnel and decide to go to Peter’s factory which is where he seems himself in the dreams. Alice though is injured by a blast and the solder catches up to them. Peter fights him off but to his shock, the soldier removes his helmet and appears human. Peter forces the soldier to carry Alice to the factory. There, his boss, David, explains that the invasion has been expected for many years.

A medic examines Alice but informs Peter that he cannot save her. As David’s men drag the invading soldier off to execute him, he yells to Peter that he can save Alice. Peter agrees to stay with the soldier to save Alice; David will evacuate their children to a subway station where a transport train awaits to take them all to an offsite base. The soldier surprises Peter by revealing that Alice is a synthetic (AI). To save Alice, she needs an alternate source of power: Peter himself. At the soldier’s guidance, Peter cuts open his own chest with a pocket knife, confirming that he is also a synthetic. The soldier connects a cable between the two androids and Peter passes out, experiencing in detail what he had thought were visions of the future but are actually memories of a past war. Fearing that android workers (synthetics) might rise up against humans, the military attack unarmed synthetics. The synthetics fight back and eventually drive all humans off the planet.

To deal with the guilt of what they have done and prevent themselves from living in fear of a reprisal from humans, the synthetics have wiped their memories and lived as humans, unaware of their nature or history. Peter wakes up and the soldier, Miles, explains that humans have been living on Mars for 50 years. He had expected the synths to be monsters, not families with children. Peter and Alice part amicably with Miles to find their daughters as humans breach the roof of the factory. As they all depart on the train, David explains that he and a handful of other synthetics kept their memories to stay prepared for the inevitable return of the humans. Peter suggests that some day there could be peace between humans and synthetics.

The storyline reminded me a lot of Skyline and the reboot tv series Battlestar Galactica. It is at best a B movie and not that entertaining or memorable. At best it can rival the best of SyFy films and it has similar production values. A 6.5 outta 10!

Talking About The Generation I Wish I Lived In

What generation do you wish you grew up in?

I wish I could have been born and raised in loans quick cash the Star Trek generation. Specifically the era from The Next Generation to the post Nemesis era. Infact let’s go even further and let’s just say that humanity & our allies have progressed even further.

Where humanity is not restricted to earth though it is almost like a paradise but you still have several beautiful planets where you can reside for a few years and then stay elsewhere and get to enjoy all these place. And where you can easily move from one place to another as easily as you travel from one city to another another but instead you travel in the luxurious comfort of a spaceship that is like a home or house or even like a nice hotel room. And you don’t have to worry about packing stuff or leaving pets behind.

No religion, no bullshit rules holding us back, no racism or bigotry and humans acting as one. Exploring the universe and seeing just what’s out there.

Overlord (2018)

Overlord is a 2018 American war horror film directed by Julius Avery and written by Billy Ray and Mark L. Smith. It stars Jovan Adepo, Wyatt Russell, Mathilde Ollivier, John Magaro, Gianny Taufer, Pilou Asbæk, and Bokeem Woodbine. The film was produced by J. J. Abrams, through his Bad Robot Productions banner, and Lindsey Weber. The plot follows several American soldiers who are dropped behind enemy lines the day before D-Day and discover secret Nazi experiments.

The movie is set on the eve of D-Day as a a paratrooper squad is sent to destroy a German radio tower in an old church. Their plane is shot down and crashes, and most of the squad was killed either in the crash or by German soldiers. Five survivors remained: Corporal Ford and soldiers Boyce, Tibbet, Chase, and Dawson, who is killed by a landmine shortly after regrouping. The remaining four led by Ford run into a young French woman name Chloe who is scavenging the bags of the dead for some loot and she agrees to take them to her village upon knowing that they are American soldiers.

At her home we meet her 8 year old brother Paul and a sick aunt, who is heavily disfigured and secluded in her room. After Tibbet and Chase depart to check the scheduled rendezvous site, a Nazi patrol led by SS Hauptsturmführer Wafner visits Chloe. Wafner sends his men away and proceeds to blackmail Chloe for sex, threatening to send her brother to the church to be “fixed”. Boyce, being an idealistic new recruit, cannot ignore this and interrupts the Nazi officer. Ford is forced to follow suit and restrain Wafner. Attempting to look for Tibbet and Chase, Boyce witnesses the Nazis burning disfigured village residents. He is chased by a dog and is forced to hide in a truck carrying dead bodies inside the church. Sneaking out of the truck, Boyce discovers an underground base which houses not only a radio operating room, but also a laboratory where the German perform various experiments involving a mysterious serum. Boyce takes a syringe containing the serum and rescues Rosenfeld, another member of the paratrooper squad who was captured alive. They escape through the base’s sewers.

When the two reach Chloe’s house ibbet and Chase had already returned. Wafner refuses to explain what the serum does, even as Ford tortures him. As the squad prepares to assault the church, Wafner attempts to escape and fatally shoots Chase. Boyce instinctively injects the serum into Chase who wakes up from being dead only to freak out as he mutates and become very strong. A scuffle ensues ending with Boyce killing Chase. Wafner escapes with Paul as a hostage and alerts a patrol. A shootout erupts where the patrol is killed and half of Wafner’s face is shot off. Back at the lab, Wafner injects himself with multiple syringes which quickly stop the bleeding. Boyce then suggests that they get back to their mission to infiltrate and destroy the tower and the lab. Chloe takes off running to distract a part of the squad that Wafner was previously with to steal a BMW R75 and rig it with explosives. Rosenfeld and Tibbet launch a frontal assault when the bike is ridden in and exploded, distracting them from the actual main purpose of the attack.

Ford, Boyce, and Chloe enter the base using the route Boyce previously used to escape. Boyce and Ford plant the explosives while Chloe looks for Paul. Chloe nearly escapes an encounter with a test subject, sending Paul outside the church and killing the subject with a flamethrower. She then leaves and rejoins Tibbet and Rosenfeld are caught up in a fight, where Tibbet is shot in the shoulder. Chloe arrives just in the nick of time to apply first aid to his wound. Wafner, now possessing superhuman strength and resilience, overpowers Ford and begins torturing him, using the same tactics Ford used. He reveals the serum was made by using the villagers’ bodies to distill an ancient tar from under the village. The aim was to create undying soldiers to serve the Reich. As Boyce distracts Wafner, the injured Ford injects himself with a syringe. He holds off Wafner long enough for Boyce to set off an oxygen tank, which momentarily stuns him.

Ford orders Boyce to leave him behind and detonate the explosives, believing neither side should possess the serum.Boyce complies and narrowly escapes as the church and radio tower collapse behind him, just as the D-Day invasion concludes in a victory for the Allies. In his report, Boyce credits Ford for the decision to plant the bombs inside the church. The commanding officer questions Boyce on talk about an underground lab in the church, Boyce denies everything, remembering Fords remark that no side should have it. The commanding officer seemingly accepts this story and informs the soldiers that they will be reassigned to Charlie Company as the war continues.

I have high praise for the visuals in the opening scene and some of the action scene. It isn’t very original but entertaining enough to keep me interested during the afternoon. I give it a solid 7 outta 10!

Ant-Man And the Wasp

Ant-Man and the Wasp is secured bad credit personal loan a 2018 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics characters Scott Lang / Ant-Man and Hope van Dyne / Wasp. Produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, it is the sequel to 2015’s Ant-Man, and the twentieth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The film is directed by Peyton Reed and written by the writing teams of Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, and Paul Rudd, Andrew Barrer, and Gabriel Ferrari. It stars Rudd as Lang and Evangeline Lilly as Van Dyne, alongside Michael Peña, Walton Goggins, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Tip “T.I.” Harris, David Dastmalchian, Hannah John-Kamen, Abby Ryder Fortson, Randall Park, Michelle Pfeiffer, Laurence Fishburne, and Michael Douglas.

It’s almost two years since the events of Civil War and Scott Lang is serving the last few days of his house arrest term  due to his involvement with the Avengers in violation of the Sokovia Accords. He spends his time at home waiting for the weekends when he can spend time with his young daughter.  Hank Pym and his daughter Hope van Dyne briefly manage to open a tunnel to the quantum realm. They believe Pym’s wife Janet van Dyne might be trapped there after shrinking to sub-atomic levels in 1987. When he had previously visited the quantum realm, Lang had unknowingly become quantumly entangled with Janet, and now he receives an apparent message from her. Lang contacts Pym and leaves a message bout Janet despite the strained relationship they have due to Lang’s actions with the Avengers.

Hope and Pym kidnap Lang, leaving an ant decoy, with instructions to mimic Scott’s routine at home so as not to arouse suspicion from FBI agent Jimmy Woo. the trio work to build a stable quantum tunnel so they can take a vehicle to the quantum realm and retrieve her. They arrange to buy a part needed for the tunnel from black market dealer Sonny Burch, who has realized the potential profit that can be earned from Pym’s research and double-crosses them. Donning the Wasp outfit, Hope fights off Burch and his men until she is attacked by a quantumly unstable masked woman. Lang tries to help fight off this “ghost”, but the woman escapes with Pym’s lab, which has been shrunk down to the size of a suitcase. Pym reluctantly visit his former partner Bill to track the lab. However there they are the ghost captures the trio and reveals herself to be Ava Starr. Her father Elihas, another of Pym’s former partners, died along with his wife during the experiment that caused Ava’s unstable state. Foster reveals that he has been helping Ava, whom they plan to cure using Janet’s quantum energy. Believing that this will kill Janet, Pym refuses to help them and escapes with Hope, Lang, and the lab.

Hope, Scott & Pym open a stable version of the tunnel and are able to contact Janet, who gives them a precise location to find her but warns that they only have two hours before the unstable nature of the realm separates them. Using a truth serum, Burch learns the trio’s location from Lang’s business partners Luis, Dave, and Kurt, and informs a contact at the FBI. Luis warns Lang, who rushes home before Woo can see him violating his house arrest. Pym and Hope are arrested by the FBI, allowing Ava to take the lab. Lang is soon able to help Pym and Hope escape custody, and they find the lab. Lang and Hope distract Ava while Pym enters the quantum realm to retrieve Janet, but Burch and his men also attack Lang and Hope which allows Ava to begin forcibly taking Janet’s energy.  Luis, Dave, and Kurt help incapacitate Burch and his men so that Lang and Hope can stop Ava. Pym and Janet return safely from the quantum realm, and Janet voluntarily gifts some of her energy to Ava to temporarily stabilize her.

Scott returns home before the FBI can check, aided in part by his daughter who is also there with her mother & her new husband and Woo has to release him at the end of his house arrest as the two years is now up. Ava and Foster go into hiding, with the latter promising to help her find a permanent solution. Pym & Janet take their house to an island beach to start a new life. In the credit scene Pym, Lang, Hope, and Janet plan to harvest quantum energy to help Ava remain stable. While Lang is in the quantum realm doing this, the other three disintegrate due to Thanos.

While the majority of the film is most funny and entertaining I found the ending to be really good leaving us in doubt as to what will happen to the trio. We know that Scott Lang comes back in the Avengers Endgame film so how does he comes out of the quantum realm without help from the scientists? I guess we will have to wait for April to know how that comes to be. I enjoyed the film with it’s blend of action and comedy. I give it an 8 outta 10!

Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel is a 2019 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Carol Danvers. Produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, it is the twenty-first film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The film is written and directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, with Geneva Robertson-Dworet also contributing to the screenplay. Brie Larson stars as Danvers, alongside Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Annette Bening, Clark Gregg, and Jude Law. Set in 1995, the story follows Danvers as she becomes Captain Marvel after Earth is caught in the center of a galactic conflict between two alien worlds.

Ok, so the story is your basic origin story of how Captain Marvel got her powers , where is she from and what makes her “her”. This is the basic methodology of all the Marvel superhero movies and superhero movies in general. So how does the movie fare, in my opinion?

  • Carol Danvers seems to be the least fleshed out superhero I can recall. And that’s because once she gets the powers, by unintentionally absorbing an exploding Kree power energy core of Dr. Lawson/Mar-vell’s experimental craft, it seems like no one can beat her. She is never in any grave danger. She can do it all, fly in space, use those awesome powers from her fists that can pummel any unsuspecting powerful alien into space. There are no high stakes and even the fight scenes become a bit stale. For a human, who remembers hardly anything of earth and was genetically modified by the Kree, she sure can find her way around 1995 America. Her stealing clothes and a bike all was too easy.
  • Watching Samuel L Jackson & Clark Gregg de-aged digitally for this film which is set in 1995 was weird – for 10 seconds and then it became natural. Good job effects team. Infact almost all the effects in the film is top notch. I only remember once scene in which it seems Marvel was a cartoon/animation figure for a few seconds while the rest is all awesome.
  • The Skrulls are an really good alien race to see in this film. I felt empathetic to their plight as refugees searching for a new home and I would like to see more of them. They are interesting as are the Kree in it. To be honest, I’d like to see a series or a couple of films set in the planet Hala. They do have an interesting dynamic going on.
  • Goose is a scene stealer – looks like a ginger cat but is infact an alien being who can swallow large items including people, as inside it is a pocket dimension inside her body and swallows the Tesseract before scratching Fury’s left eye, permanently blinding it. I did not see that one coming.
  • Annette Benning, Ben Mendelsohn, Lee Pace returning as Ronan the Accuser & Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau (Danver’s best friend and fellow pilot) are all good as supporting cast members with a lot to do. Jude Law as Carol’s Kree mentor as the lead villain in the film plays a duel role as proud mentor and having a deceptive agenda against Carol.
  • The use of 90s rock music and a couple of rap/hip-hop songs as well as some 90s tech and BlockBuster seem to give us a 90s vibe. I miss the 90s!

Overall I didn’t feel as engaged in the film as I usually am in a Marvel film. I thought there were no bonding of the character Captain Marvel to the audience as she is just lucky to be powerful and she will protect what she must but is less fleshed out than most others. Her powers and abilities makes her almost too powerful and that is kind of a let down. I give the film top marks for the special effects but a 7.5 outta 10!

CW’s Arrow Is Ending Next Year

It’s the end of an era as Arrow was just announced that they will be ending their run with an 8th & final shorter season that will air late in the year. The final season of the Stephen Amell starrer will consist of only 10 episodes. Arrow, the first of the network’s current roster of DC Comics dramas, will end with its previously announced eighth season. The final season of the Stephen Amell-led drama from executive producer Greg Berlanti and Warner Bros. TV will consist of a reduced order of 10 episodes and air in the fall. The final season will air during the 2019-2020 broadcast calendar.

The decision to wrap the series arrives as CW president Mark Pedowitz was open about needing to make way for a possible second phase of DC Comics-inspired series on the network. The success of the comic book drama led to offshoots including The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl. (Black Lightning, while still a DC Comics drama, exists outside the so-called Arrow-verse.)

The decision came in part from none other than Oliver Queen himself, Stephen Amell. As he revealed in a Facebook video, he approached series showrunner Greg Berlanti towards the end of the sixth season and felt it best to move on due to his contract soon ending. Though he’d hoped the show could live apply for a small loan without him and even tried to advocate for it, the showrunners and the network came to the mutual decision to end the show. As a result, the final season will get a limited run, with only 10 episodes instead of the normal 22.

Berlanti, who executive produces all the DC series, is teaming with showrunner Caroline Dries for a Ruby Rose-led Batwoman. The pilot is currently in production, and the project is fully expected to be picked up to series. The final season of Arrow can cash loans unemployed only increase Batwoman‘s chances to make it to air. Batwoman is considered the first comic book show to feature an openly gay leading character.
