Movie Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

The Michael Bay produced 2014 live action treatment of the TMNT franchise is not the nostalgia adventure that all of us long time turtle fans hoped it would be. Don't get me wrong, TMNT is somewhat of a thriller...just not the thriller we hoped would bring out our inner child. The 2014 live action TMNT film does not share the traditional TMNT story line of the past live action movies, instead it's based completely around the new generation Nickelodeon cartoon story line. I knew Nickelodeon was helping make the movie but I had no idea that they would focus only on the new show.



The film had lots of humor moments. You will indeed laugh, but then there are some scenes that would make a child confused as to rather they should laugh or be scared by the monster faced over grown turtle. The design of the turtles can also be very distracting, especially Donatello. This guy has a freakin desktop computer among other gadgets just sitting on his back throughout the entire film. I get it that they want to diversify the appearance of the characters but come on, it just looks strange to see a guy fighting crime with an entire desktop, webcam, goggles, etc. on his back.

FEATURE: Dualshock 4 Light Bar Decals

Sony changed the game with the design of their Playstation 4 Dualshock controller. The PS4 controller features a light bar at the top of the controller that changes color based upon the in gaming events displayed on the screen. It may display a color to signify which player number you are or it may change colors to signify if your character is good or evil as it does in the game Infamous: Second Son. The light bar also gives the PS4 controller an aesthetic cool factor that separates it from other gaming consoles.

Product Review: STM Trust Laptop Messenger Bag

Tech and fashion finally find a common road... well sort of. The Australian brand, STM, has created a line of bags & cases tailored for the tech savvy gadget lover. The bags were created with the intent and purpose of having something stylish and comfortable to protect all of our gadgets while on the go. STM creates a variety of bags, cases, and sleeves that perfectly suit the modern man or woman.



I've had the STM Trust Laptop Messenger bag for a few months now. It's from the Annex collection (chic, cool, and urban meets high tech and comfortable). I wanted to field test this bag over a few months to ensure that I could write an accurate time tested review for you. Initially as a freelance journalist on the go, the Trust messenger bag seemed like the perfect fit upon reading the features.
