...Yesterday... I saw in the newsstand that they were selling among the DVDs a pack of two Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies and it costed only 9 euros, the price of one film.
Hoping that the pack contained the original 1990 film (which is VERY good and deserves money) and the sequel "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze
" (which instead doesn't really deserve money) I decided the next day (which is today) to go get my hands on that DVD pack.
I grabbed and scrutinized every side of it... BUT IT DIDN'T SAY WHICH MOVIES IT CONTAINED.
It just said "two movies" and that's all. I decided to take the risk and I gave 9 euros making it mine, so I took the carton off and looked at the back of the DVD: still no answers, just "two movies" again.
...I opened it... It had "The Secret of the Ooze
" ...And motherfucker "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III
The first, as I already said, "The Secret of the Ooze
" DOESN'T deserve anybody's money. It's not a good film, in fact, it's actually pretty brainless and it believes the kids would watch any fucking thing as long as it has the Turtles in. It's a talentless piece of shit and it was pure, undeserved LUCK that back in 1991 it managed to clear its production budget with the box office.
...But "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III
"... Is one of the worst fucking movies of all time. Everyone hates it guts.
...So what did I do standing there in the newsstand holding those two abominations that just robbed me like a fucking LOSER? At first I was tempted to do this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6xoL7…
But instead I went out... As soon as I saw a trash can in an alley I immediatly reached it... And I truned my rage on that fucking DVD pack by breaking it in two. The disk of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III
" fell off. I thrusted the remains of the pack and the disk of "The Secret of the Ooze
" in the garbage and I fucking DESTROYED the disk of Episode 3 breaking it into pieces with my bare hands and STOMPING it in the mud. Then I put it in the trash can as well and I spitted inside.
...I was fucking STEAMING.
But the worst part was being a victim of motherfucking FALSE ADVERTISING.
You hope for a pack of DVD of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies to contain the first two movies since they're the most successful ones, but NO! They DON'T tell you what's in the box and so you're left with an AWFUL surprise once you open it.
This REALLY frustrates me, I'm giving you money and all you do is TRICKING people by making them unintentionally pay for a mediocre movie and a MASSIVE piece of shit film, and they can't do nothing to get their money back!
YOU NEED TO TELL PEOPLE WHAT THEY'RE BUYING. You shouldn't trick them with false and misleading advertising!
I personally don't like spending money on stuff I don't want to own, ESPECIALLY movies I dislike, I hope this experience makes you realize that you gotta be careful on what you're spending your money on and regarding false/misleading advertising in general.
But the fact they change and mislead the cover of the package to sell SHIT really shows how cash-grabbing and desperate they are.
...I was so fucking furious I couldn't control myself, I had all the right to be pissed off and destroy those disks, but I SHOULDN'T have destroyed the package, really, I should've just remove the paper of the cover and throw it in the trash with the DVDs but keep that pack with the space for two disks.
Hey, at least someone will not buy those two films and raise their kids with those two pieces of shit, so I'm kind of a hero XP
Well, I learnt an important lesson today, I hope you'll take to heart the stuff you just read so you won't commit my mistakes and fall into the web of false/misleading advertising, because wasting money on shit you hate is NOT cool.
You know what? FUCK IT, once I post this I'm gonna go down in my local nerd store and I'll order the DVD of the original 1990 movie because GODDAMNIT I wanted to buy that film and I fucking will.
...Damn it though, I was saving 30 euros to buy "Flubber
" and "One Hour Photo
" to commemorate Robin Williams, but I'll be left with 10 euros only. Well, shit, it will be for another time.
In any case this was bullshit, be careful, people. Be very careful.
Well, I returned from the Nerd Store... After learning that the original 1990 movie is out of copies.
...Instead, the pack with those two shits is EVERYWHERE.
...This is why we can't have nice fucking things.
Now if you excuse me, I'm gonna go curl up in a corner to weep while listening Paul McCartney's "Yesterday".
