An Entertaining Dissection...
If you're interested in an entertaining and amusing dissection of the 1990 TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES movie just in time for the 2014 Michael Bay remake, you'll love this. Discussion of plot and characters, fight mechanics, and witty banter abound.
Unlike most review shows, this is funny at times, but is also an honest review of the films. Also, the crux of the film is that people have to defend movies they have not seen in years; great flashbacks to my youth. A lot of fun!
A Great Discussion
This is a lot of fun. It's never boring and it has some great information. If you're looking for a podcast that's like having a conversation with your childhood friends, look no further.
