Super 8: Movie Review

Those of us who were born in the late 70s and early 80s all have one thing in common, we grew up watching a true master of cinema, Steven Spielberg, and his tellings of E.T., Goonies, Indiana Jones, Jaws, and so many more iconic classics. Spielberg has taken on the roles of director, writer, and producer of countless films in the last four decades. Many filmmakers look up to him as their inspiration, one of them being J.J. Abrams, writer and director of Super 8.

X-Men First Class: Movie Review

Back in the early 1990s, I found a cartoon on the Fox Channel on Saturday mornings. X-Men: The Animated Series. It had caught my attention mainly because a decade earlier, I watched Spider-man and his Amazing Friends which occasionally featured the X-Men. Right from the start, I found myself hooked and dearly loving the cartoon. At this time in my life, I had already given up most comic books, except for the occasional Ninja Turtles comic by Archie.

Kung Fu Panda 2 : Movie Review

In 2008, the original Kung Fu Panda movie came to theaters.  When I saw the movie, I felt like something was missing from it, yet it was still somewhat enjoyable.  I did not see the movie again until recently when my nephews started to watch the movie. I did find it had that appeal that when the movie was on I would stop to watch it for a bit.

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.

Puppet Improv: For a TMNT Contest

This is a short improv video I did with some friends for a contest on facebook. The puppets were both made by my dad, as I wanted to do something different for the video. Though with a lot going on, we were in a rush putting this together. Originally I was going to try and script it out and we were going to film in a handful of locations. Though instead everything was done at my house, first part in the Cowabunga Corner set and the second part outside in my drive way, no script.

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 creative team b

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.
