Casey Jones is Not a Pretty Boy

Posted in Videos! with tags , , , , on 04/27/2016 by McCutcheon

Look, I’m not hating the guy. I’ve never seen him act and he could win all the Academy Awards for all I’m concerned. In fact, when you see him, tell him I said hi. Only thing I’m trying to say is that this boy is hot, hot, HOT! And Casey Jones is…not.

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES

Some Spoilers Ahead!

Man, the wait is over. The movie finally came out and we’re able to see for ourselves if it’s worth it or not. Many will tell you it’s not, and I’m sure many will tell you it is. Who can you trust? Me, you idiot! The answer is always me.

In all seriousness though, this is a movie that is what you want it to be. You wanna laugh, you can. You want to hate it, you will. Here are a few words to help you get into the mindset. Continue reading

ninja

Stars: Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard, Noel Fisher, Alan Ritchson, Danny Woodburn, Megan Fox, Will Arnett, William FIchtner, Tohoru Mosamune, and voices by Johnny Knoxville, Tony Shaloub

Rated PG-13 for sci-fi action violence , Running time 101 minutes, Action/Sci-fi/Comedy

Compare to: Hellboy (2004) The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

For a movie that’s garnering as much hype (and hate) as this new Ninja Turtles movie is, expectations were still right there in the middle for me. Could be good, could be a waste of time.

And for all the backlash its received  by way of critics, I’m having a hard time understanding it. Has the story been done before? Sure. But is it enjoyable to see the turtles flipping around with martial arts that rubber suits previously prevented? Definitely. Continue reading

MBTI: Casey Jones- ESTP

We all know the ESTP and it’s safe to say they’re most competitive type overall. It’s also safe to say that since they’re dominant Se users, the future takes a backseat to whatever feels the most interesting at the moment.

But that’s not all their is to this type, is it? Sports n’ stuff? Well, that’s not all, no, but the approach the ESTP takes to competition of any realm is an especially notable in how serious they take it. One could even say that they make jockery an art. Casey Jones is the perfect example to use for this, not only because he’s a TMNT character, but look at him. He’s covered in sports. Continue reading

“It’s only the F and the T that change, right? So these types are really a lot alike!”

…Only they’re not. For only “one letter” changing, the differences between the two make them appear hardly relatable at all, similar to the leader of the Foot Clan and the leader of the turtles. While both think in big picture planning, not much else is similar. Continue reading

MBTI: TMNT Week

tmAs a childhood favorite, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have always been there for me. Not through break-ups or heartache, trials and tribulations or anything like that but like, y’know…uh…when I would remember how much I loved them when I was a kid then I would, um…

Okay, so I don’t understand that phrasing of “always been there for me” when it comes to a thirty year-old franchise that had my parents spending God knows how much on come every birthday and Christmas. I never got the turtle van though. I guess you could say I had a rough childhood.

Anyway, since the Teenage Mutant Ninja Bay Turtles comes out Friday and I have yet to type all of the core characters past the turtles, might as well do so now before everybody watches the movie and decides to hate it all.

Leonardo- ENFJ

Donatello- INTP

Raphael- ISTP

Michelangelo- ESFP

Casey Jones- ESTP

Shredder and Splinter- INTJ and INFJ Comparison

I Just Realized April O’Neil is Disgusting

Just kidding, you’re not going to hate it. And if you are, just take Megan Fox’s advice! Gold!

And we hate what BAY is doing to the Ninja Turtles? C'mon.

MBTI: Raphael- ISTP

He’s cool but rude, Raphael plays the part to the Ninja Turtles like Wolverine plays to the X-Men: Action and one liners are his main responsibilities and writing his character is pretty much the writer’s way of saying “Somebody needs to get punched in this scene.”

ESTP is often the type associated with never holding back but ISTP is what you want if subtlety is to be thrown in there. And while being subtle doesn’t usually go hand-in-hand with being a giant mutant turtle, Raphael does what he can. Continue reading
