Cat (@fancyfembot) and Carl (@robominister) drop number two of the 10th Annual TURD OFF for 2019!

The final turds are:
Men In Black International
Ad Astra
Captive State

Turd Criteria:
1) Squandered Effects: Did they have a big budget and use special effects in a meaningful way to advance the story or were the special effects not compelling and misused/underutilized given the budget of the film?
2) Acting?: Did the acting contribute to the enjoyment of the film or was it painful to watch? Did the casting make sense for the film?
3) Turdage Per Dollar: Was there a big budget and nothing to show for it? Did they use the budget to create an effective film or was it wasted?
4) Fury Upon Exit: Were you pissed off when you were done watching this film? Do you still have residual fury when you talk about it?
5) Which Sequel Would Offend the Least?: Do you want a sequel? Could you tolerate a sequel?
