This Wednesday, we’re running a Mock the Movie overtime. We’re picking up in the middle of the month because Jason wanted, for some inexplicable reason, to watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. More understandably, he didn’t want to be alone as everything light and silly from his childhood explodes around his head.
This is available
on Netflix on a kind of sketchy ad-supported site we’ve used before to no ill effect. Just watch where you click.
“This sounds awful!” I hear you cry. Yes. Yes, it does. “This must be mocked mercilessly”, you say. Well, then you’re in the right company. The instructions for playing along:
- Start following @MockTM on Twitter.
- Start watching the movie on the appropriate Wednesday at 9 p.m. Eastern time.
- Once you’ve got the movie going, tweet your snarky comments to @MockTM. Directing our tweets to @MockTM will keep our followers from being overwhelmed with our snark!
- Set up a search for @MockTM on Twitter for the duration so you can follow along with everyone else sharing your pain.
If you have suggestions for other movies that can and should be mocked, send them to @MockTM. Preference will be given to movies that are free or stream on the major media delivery services. Watch the feed, and we’ll set up the calendar for more terrible, mockable movies.
If you’ve missed a mocking, you can catch transcripts and even subtitle files for later watching on the Mock the Movie archive.
