Megan Fox and mutants in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows – Dare Daniel Podcast Episode 114

“I can judge it, I will judge it and I do judge it…as bad.”

Pizza enthusiasts Daniel and Corky emerge from the shadows to review Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. This 2016 sequel is a big empty nothing constantly recapping its own empty nothingness. It’s $135 million worth of going through the motions filmmaking smothered in incessant and unfunny quips.

Elsewhere, Daniel and Corky discuss Grand Central Station schoolgirl gangs, nunchaku trucks, Carmelo cameos and mecha-guffins.


U.S. theatrical release: June 3, 2016

This week’s darer: Colin Williams

Why did Colin dare Daniel and Corky to watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows? “I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry. It’s been so hot this summer and I haven’t been drinking enough water and I’m dehydrated and it made me light-headed and I chose to watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows and it’s so bad. It’s so bad and now I need you to know how bad it is by watching it. I’m sorry.”

IMDB synopsis: “The Turtles get into another battle with their enemy the Shredder, who has acquired new allies: the mutant thugs Bebop and Rocksteady and the alien being Krang.”
