Im just Going to see Guardians again, nothing else opens this weekend. I remember liking Ninja Turtles as a kid and still have alot of figures, but It did not translate to adult hood interest for me.

Let's hope not. The movie looks terrible. After TF4, I've lost faith in Bay.
It took you until the fourth one to lose faith?
First one was great. 2nd and 3d sucked too but were at least entertaining and enjoyable to watch. The fourth was torture.

The only Michael Bay movie that has any rewatchability for me is The Rock. Everything else he directed doesn't really work for me.

I am in the same boat. He clearly peaked with that film.

How about Bad Boys 2?
Usually not a fan of his latest works but I really liked Pain & Gain.

I fell asleep watching it, which was nice.

I hated Bad Boys 2. Thought it was atrocious. At least I soft of enjoyed Bad Boys, although I'm in no hurry to watch it again. Did not catch Pain & Gain. Problem is, more often than not, I come away disappointed by whatever film Michael Bay puts out, and with so little time nowadays to catch new releases (kids and all), I tend to steer clear of his work unless reviews are very positive.

Saw TMNT last week. Not nearly as bad as you think. Not nearly as good as the first movie. Megan absolutely sucks as April(no surprise there), the cg is way distracting at times, specially with Splinter, the plot is generic,and their origin?, well I'll let you be the judge. Oh and Donny sounds like a girl :x Pros: they kept the turtles funny and their traits are still intact. Shredder is quite cool contrary to most expectations, and the fights are the best in the franchise. Would I see it again? Probably not

I feel like there may have been a fun movie buried in that runtime. About 2 hours in I was wishing the "Seed" would be dropped on my theater. There was no reason that movie needed to be almost 3 hours.

Haven't seen any of the Transformers movies and prolly never will. Last watchable Bay movie was The Island. Didn't care for Pain and Gain.
