MPOV: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows

The Turtles come into conflict with T.C.R.I. scientist Dr. Baxter Stockman and the return of their enemy, The Shredder, who has hired Stockman to create mutants of his own in the form of Bebop and Rocksteady to even the score, during which the Turtles discover a Retro-Mutagen in hopes they can become humans following an extraterrestrial invasion above New York City led by the Dimension X inhabitant known as Krang. Upon Krang's Invasion, the Turtles are joined in the fight with their Master Splinter, their human friends April O'Neil, Vern Fenwick and the vigilante Casey Jones.

Overall, the movie is typically a TMNT plot, similar to the cartoon I used to watch when I was younger. It was no surprise for me but luckily, it was fast paced and entertaining to watch. The CGI was so realistically done, everything so seamless so the whole movie was as real as it gets. My kids were laughing much too as it was comedic and hilarious at some point. It's nice to watch with the family.

Unfortunately, we had to opt for TGV at Jaya Shopping Centre due to timing and location limitation. The tickets were not cheap so I didn't expect the cinema we were in to have a certain distinct smell lingering in the air. Not only that, nowadays, patrons seemed to have lost their manners in public. We encountered many feet resting on top of the seats in front of them hence the extra pungent smell. Also, not limiting to men, even women enjoy shaking/knocking/kicking their legs behind our seats. Not forgetting those who must see their mobile whenever it buzzed. Is this the culture embedded in humans now? It is so RUDE, causing us who also paid to watch the movie, so much inconvenience... making our overall experience flake. It wasn't nice at all for my poor girl feeling the brunt of such discomfort as the woman behind kept kicking her seat.

Sorry for the rant here as our enjoyable family movie outing was disrupted by all these inhumane, rude encounters. Honestly do not know where are their manners/brains or are they actually human?
