Review Corner: "Black Swan"

Black Swan is a film about a dancer, Nina, who wants to be perfect and pushes herself so hard that it drives her crazy. Those around her do not realize how crazy she is becoming as she is placed as the lead in Swan Lake. Her teacher is having her do both the white and black swan, though she’s great as the white swan she’s needs to learn how to be bad and show it for the black swan. The more work she does to perform the black swan, the closer she becomes to insanity.

Review: "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader"

Chronicles of Narnia: “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” is a lot like the first two movies. So, if you enjoyed the other two movies you will more than likely enjoy this movie. The effects, characters, and fight scenes are all well done.

Being a Collector

Collectors are everywhere you go and everyone knows someone who collects, even if the collector is not public about it.  From Stamps, Baseball cards, DVDs, money to toy and statues, we’re surrounded in a world filled with so many collectable items that people just walk by daily not realizing how important it is to someone else in the world. Though, are collectors someone who should be pointed at for being different, obsessive, selfish or worse?  I don’t think anyone should be out casted by hobbies that do not hurt other people.

Cowabunga Corner #28

 

In this episode we have an interview with Scott Williams who is best known as Baxter Stockman from the 4Kids TMNT series.

The interview was filmed at New York City Comic Con on October 10th, 2010. Scott is a great guy and a good artist. He does commissions and I’d like to share some of his information here for people who are interested in getting commissions or just saying hi to Baxter Stockman.

Movie Review: Tangled

Got the chance to see Tangled, and as a Disney fan I was excited. I usually enjoy most everything about their movies; plots, character design, character growth, and music all play an important role in Disney movies. This year has been filled to the brim with CGI movies, so to get two thumbs up from me it would have to be as good as the others that have come out.

Going into Tangled you learn they have a good background story and building growth upon the lead characters. The show how Rapunzel got to the point where she was at as her mother was pregnant and became very ill. To save both Rapunzel and her mother, people went out to find a magic flower that would heal the mother. Once found, they fed the flower to the mother and soon after the baby Rapunzel was born with golden yellow hair.

2005 Interview Eric Anzalone

In 2005, Eric Anzalone from the Village People took time to be interviewed for his work he did with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Here on Cowabunga Corner we’d like to share this interview for the first time, as a lead in to our 12th episode for season two, a video interview with Eric.

Cowabunga Corner:
How did you first hear of the Ninja Turtles?

Eric:
That would have to be the 1st Movie?

CC:
Did you watch the cartoons or movies?

Eric:
I watched the movies. By the time the second film came out, I was already involved with the TMNT, so I would try to catch the cartoons as well- you know character work; trying to make everything consistent.

CC:
Before being a Turtle did you have a favorite Turtle, if so did it change after being in the Tour?

Review Corner: Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows #1

One of my main goals these last two year was to read all of the Harry Potter books prior to seeing the beginning of the end for the movies. Sadly, I did not accomplish that goal. I only made it to the fourth book before my life became its normal chaos. I had a basic idea of what was going to happen in The Half Blood Prince, as my husband listened to the audio book at his computer without headphones. With The Deathly Hallows audio book, he used headphones. So, going into this first part of the movie, I was completely clueless as I have been with all of the previous movies aside from The Half Blood Prince.

Review Corner: "127 Hours"

This week I got the chance to go see “127 Hours,” a movie based on a real life story about a man, who has been climbing all of his life, went out on a day hike. He fell and became trapped after a boulder crushes his arm. His story was well known as he had to cut his own hand off just to escape. I remember hearing about this story back when it happened, so it was interesting to see a movie about it.

My first question when going into this movie was, how are they going to make a movie out of someone trapped alone for 127 hours without putting the crowd to sleep. True, the challenge of getting away is something of interest. Though, how much could they really put on camera that could hold enough attention for a theatrical movie?
