Movie Review: Red

There’s just sometimes you need to shut your brain down and try to enjoy yourself with some action and comedy, and that’s exactly what you get here with Red. It’s loosely based off of a Warren Ellis graphic novel. I can’t tell you how loosely based, I can only go by what I have read online about the comparison as I have not read the graphic novel but I will soon. Though I’m sure there are some die hard graphic novel fans who are highly opposed to this flick. Yet, until I read the graphic novel, I really enjoyed myself with this movie.

Cowabunga Corner #25

In this episode, I talk about an event fans know as “Turtle Con 2000″.

Back in May 2000 there was nothing new coming out of Ninja Turtles besides for a few T-Shirts here or there. Though comics were just going into their quiet time as Image was wrapping up the series, no TV show (not even reruns)… it was not a time the fans liked.

Cowabunga Corner #24

In this episode, I review the first five episodes of “Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation”. This five parter is titled “East meets West’.

I’ve been a fan of Ninja Turtles : The Next Mutation since it aired back in 1997. So I’m going to be doing episode reviews for this series as well as the other Ninja Turtles series. Here I talk about my thoughts on “East meets West” the five parter that kicked off “Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation”. And though I enjoy the series, these are not my favorite episodes within the series.

I go over the main plot, the characters and a little bit about the acting/editing of these five episodes. If you want to hear what I think just watch the blog.

Cowabunga Corner #23

In this episode of “Cowabunga Corner” I’m talking about the Viacom buy out of Ninja Turtles.

On October 21st, 2009, Peter Laird finished a sale of all TMNT, besides for the Mirage comic version to Viacom. Selling them for $60 Million. The sale was a surprise to everyone, as we all knew Ninja Turtles were having a big year with their cross country tour, comics, and the “Turtles Forever Movie” as well as the release of “Turtles Smash Up” video game. The last thing on any of our minds was them being sold.

Cowabunga Corner #20

In this episode I share video footage from July 1999 of the closing of the Words & Pictures Museum.

This is the Thank you speech to those who supported the Museum during the years that it was open. We also see Kevin get a few awards for the kindness he’s shared with others.  I filmed most of this video personally the other camera person was my sister Miki. I was filming through the full speech, I know the camera swings around a bit from time to time.

Ivey Flashbacks 2

 

This episode the video was recorded in November 1990 as my dad made a Krang puppet, we called a hall costume. It’ll sit on our shoulders as we walk around and the mouth moves.

I was very lucky to grow up with my dad and his artistic talent. Michiganers know my dad from his work on a TV show called “The Ghoul” back in the 1970′s & 1980′s. The last few years my dad now works on a TV show called “Wolfman Mac’s Chriller Drive-in”. You can find a little bit of both of these shows here on youtube, and if you have the RTV (Retro Television) network you can watch Wolfman Mac at 10pm on Saturday.

Cowabunga Corner #19

In this episode of “Cowabunga Corner”, I talk about the Archie TMNT Comic Books!

I started to collect the Archie Turtle Comics in 1990. The story, the art, and the characters kept me craving more all the time. In this blog I talk a bit about the Archie comics, a series I highly recommend for everyone. Originally based off of the cartoon and than took it’s own direction.
