If nothing else, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows certainly looks wacky. The newest trailer doesn’t offer much in the way of “new,” but it is a solid reminder that Tyler Perry and Laura Linney are actually in this movie, and that is a thing we will never forget. On the more serious side of things (as if), Arrow’s Stephen Amell makes for a pretty cool Casey Jones. So there’s that.

In case you forgot because 80 percent of the real estate in your brain has been occupied by Star Wars, there's a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel on the way. Arrow star Stephen Amell plays hockey hero Casey Jones in the upcoming film, and the actor has revealed the first footage from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows — and oh yeah, that's the title.

Give Tyler Perry this much: The man is unpredictable. After carving out his own extremely lucrative and popular place in the world of indie film writing and directing a series of melodramas and comedies, he’s spent more and more time in the last couple years building up his acting resume in Hollywood. He starred as the title character in the cop thriller Alex Cross, and gave a really great supporting performance as a sleazy lawyer in David Fincher’s Gone Girl. So how do you follow up that one-two punch of crime and graft? Obviously by playing a mad scientist who turns into a giant fly in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.

'Gone Girl' Review: David Fincher's Sleazy Prestige Film

Throughout David Fincher’s adaptation of ‘Gone Girl,’ it was almost as if my subconscious was telling me that this movie shouldn’t be as good as what I was watching. That’s not a slam on Gillian Flynn’s novel (obviously; I haven’t read it), it’s just that the book is presented in such a unique way, which would at least seem almost impossible to pull off – just in a basic book vs. movie sort of way. Look, I understand that this following statement can be said about most movies, but in a less capable director’s hands – and with a less capable cast -- this movie could have easily have been garbage. Actually, this movie should have been garbage.

'Tyler Perry’s The Single Moms Club' Review

As if in response to Cate Blanchett’s Oscar acceptance speech contention that audiences want to see films with women at the center of them, Tyler Perry’s latest, ‘The Single Moms Club,’ focuses on four women struggling, often with humor, to deal with single parenthood.
Unfortunately, Perry’s gift at creating opportunities for actresses to lead their own movies does not extend to creating good movies, much less characters. A stacked deck of one-dimensional demonstrations of female oppression, explored – and overcome – with Perry’s typically well-intentioned but misguided notions of empowerment, ‘The Single Moms Club’ ranks among the filmmaker’s worst work yet.

'A Madea Christmas' Review

The night after watching Tyler Perry’s latest film, I had a dream where I was trying to do something, and never pulled it off – and that’s a lot of what 'A Madea Christmas' is like: a lot of effort that ends up being pointless, but feels exhausting anyway. That sounds crueler than I mean for it to, since I did in fact laugh at it, a lot, certainly more than I did in my dream. But as with most of Perry’s films, 'A Madea Christmas' is messy and half-baked, funny on purpose but especially when trying to be serious, and ultimately as convincing as a comically-oversized man, dressed up in drag, mispronouncing words in a way that no one possibly could.
