Hangover 2 : Movie Review

Every once in awhile a comedy comes that’s just so wrong all the way through it, that they can get away with the most offensive things and make it work.  The original Hangover movie, which came out in 2009, was one of those movies with jokes that were so horrible, adventures they went through that was so awful, and the things they did that was just insane.  All off that is what made the movie work so well.

Kevin Eastman Back on Board!

When Ninja Turtles sold to Nickelodeon in October 2009 a lot talk went around as fears of the new directions Ninja Turtles would take.  Though the biggest fears was no longer seeing those names that we all know being tied into the TMNT.  The first sign of names coming back was last year when it was leaked that Rob Paulsen is returning as a voice for the new show, this time being Donatello.  Hope then came up when we learned of IDW picking up the Ninja Turtle Comic.  Though the biggest surprise came on May 19th, 2011 when "Comic Alliance" released an interview about the c

Con Review: Motor City Comic Con 2011

Since 1997, I have been attending “Motor City Comic Con”, a comic book convention held in Novi, Michigan.  Like most comic book conventions, there’s a dealer room, artist alley, panel rooms and guests.  They bring in Media guests from all sorts of medias from TV shows, movies and wrestling.  And let’s not forget the long list of comic artist that they bring in.

"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" Review

Disney has been riding the wave of success with their Pirates of the Caribbean movies.  Three very successful movies have come and gone that were closely tied together with a flowing plot that brought you from one movie into the next.  With adventure, comedy, and great effects, the movies made their mark in the box offices.  Of course it did not hurt that they all starred named actors like Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom.  Though Disney was not done with Pirates, as they are releasing their fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie this upcoming Friday.

Thor: Movie Review

The comic book superhero movie genre is a tricky genre to truly master for maximum audience entertainment. Though each summer for almost a decade, superhero movies have dominated the big screen. This year is certainly no different with at least four main superhero movies coming out between May and August.

A talented Artist

One thing I’ve been thinking about sharing here on Cowabunga Corner is more stuff about the different people I know and their talents, skills and what they have to offer.  Some will be interviews, others will be just short write ups.  In this write up, I’d like to share a little bit about one of my favorite artist.

TMNT on Mad TV

With TMNT having down time as we watch every piece of news coming out from Nickelodeon and IDW for something new, it’s good to see spoofs of the Turtles on the air to give us all something to enjoy.  Recently on Cartoon Network their Mad TV cartoon did it’s own spoof on TMNT mixed with TMZ, calling it TMNTMZ TV.

Movie Review: Rio

Endangered birds, last of their kind, are brought together to mate and save their race.  Though there’s some people out to get the birds for the money they’ll bring in.  Can the birds get away from the threat and learn to love each other?  That’s what the movie Rio is about.

Mirage: Goodbye Facebook

Since October 2009, when the news was released that Viacom bought the Turtles.  Fans have been watching more and more of the stuff we know of Mirage disappear.  With the official Turtle website now down for maintenance, the Mirage comics closing down, the few workers still with Mirage only being there a few days a week to handle the orders that come in for their back stock, and now a good bye on their Facebook page.
