    I was first introduced to this movie after my sister insisted I watch it for years and years and I finally sat down to watch it and now I want to strangle her. An absolute mess of a film that could've been SOOOO good. You would've thought that putting Neil Gaiman (who has wrote several great works), Dave McKean (an accomplished artist) and the Jim Henson Company together would make for a great movie but this falls so so short. If I remember correctly, they wanted to do another fantasy film comparable to Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal so the decided to shit this one out, albeit with a much smaller budget and it definitely shows. Terrible CGI, random nonsense plot, bad acting with awkward dialogue, scenes that make you think, "what was the point of all that?". This movie actually has rabid fan base that is absolutely crazy about this movie and there may be a few here. I think they're so distracted by the imagery and I guess the whole "world" of MirrorMask to the point where they fail to realize it's actually a pretty crappy movie. I'm sure there are a ton of 5-star reviews from users even though it bombed commercially and was panned by critics... and anybody else with good taste in movies. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GA1iawlsKLg

    Well, I guess we can officially close the book on this one.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze

    The third one is definitely the most awful of the three but I feel like that would be an incredibly boring episode. The second one has an endless amount of shit to poke fun at. Apparently it was too "gritty and real" considering parents complained that the first one had too much cussing and violence so they removed any cussing and don't really use their weapons in the second one.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze

    Less than a year after the first? Wow that is a quick turnaround.
  5. No, not the first one that actually isn't THAT bad and no, not the third one which is just terribly boring. Yes, the absolutely cheesy second one with laughable dialogue and the legendary "Ninja Rap" with Vanilla Ice. This should be done right before the new Michael Bay atrocity comes out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6j2KRf8t3Hg I know there's already a thread for the third film but this is deserving of its own.

    Episode 89 — Gooby

    To touch on what June pointed out, I think the reason why they referred it as "October 31st" instead of "Halloween" is because I think it's a Christian movie disguised as a children's film. Many Christians refuse to call it "Halloween" because of its supposed ties to paganism so some will call it "Harvest Day" instead or in this case, just "October 31st". Also, notice there were no scary costumes, something that some Christians frown upon. Gooby also tried to push strong family and (what I think) Christian values at the end. The soundtrack also sounds like a dead giveaway. I didn't see the song credits but they sounded like overproduced crappy Christian pop music. I think the lyrics expressing love were being expressed towards God, not a significant other. Lastly, one of the quotes from the trailer is from The Dove Foundation. In their "About Us" section, they make it quite clear. "The Dove reviews, posted online at www.dove.org, are based on traditional Judeo-Christian values." Oh, and VideoViews.org was quoted in the trailer saying "A Perfect Family Film". Look at their website and tell me it's something to take seriously.
