Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows movie review: shell schlock

30 May 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Leaden and witless, though it obviously believes there is humor in its loud, chaotic juvenility. It would be an insult to cartoons to call this cartoonish. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Apparently the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, when they debuted way back in the 1980s, were intended as a parody of superhero comics. I picked up this tidbit from the Tmnt wikipedia page. I did not absorb it through some sort of cinematic osmosis while watching the new Tmnt movie, Out of the Shadows. That would have been impossible. Whatever the truth of the long-ago comic-book Turtles, there is absolutely nothing that marks them as satirical here.

‘The Night Manager’: Hugh Laurie, Tom Hiddleston Put New Spin on Cunning Spy Tale

Introducing the “worst man in the world.” That dubious honorific is bestowed on Hugh Laurie in AMC’s new six-part limited series “The Night Manager,” as he masterfully embodies Richard Onslow Roper, a charming yet cunningly ruthless international businessman.

Lifted straight from the 1993 John Le Carré novel on which the spy thriller is based, that line “is the sort of thing a child might say,” concedes executive producer Stephen Garrett. “With the people around the world we read about in newspapers on a daily basis, that’s quite a high bar.”

Yet perhaps even more daunting was the idea of adapting a 20-year-old spy thriller for modern audiences. Two previous efforts at translating the novel to the screen had failed. But this time out, Le Carré’s sons, Simon and Stephen Cornwell, with the help of screenwriter David Farr, tried a new approach: updating the Cold War action to the present day. »
