Reaction : Rise of the TMNT first article

Cast for Nickelodeons Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesSince 1987 the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been going through reboots.  MWS was the first to really change the Turtles, with David Wise as the writer who had the job to make these Turtles kid friendly.  With every new incarnation of the Turtles, comes big changes.  Some changes stay, some changes are only in those incarnation of these characters.  Each ride is it’s own adventure which has it’s beginning middle and end.  As fans, the best we can do is see where the creative team takes us, and hopefully enjoy the ride.  A new ride is starting, with Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Kodak Moment #66

I got hundreds to thousands of photos through my life.  A lot of which would match up to stories here on Cowabunga Corner, but for one reason or another they are not chosen.  This does not mean that these photos are not worth sharing and do not hold stories of their own.  I would like to keep sharing what I can here on the site, so whenever I can I will share a photo and a story to go along with the photo.  If it’s a part of events that has been shared here, we will link back to the stories of the events themselves as well.  Hope everyone enjoys.  Today’s photo is Bill Wolf and I.

Movie Review: "The Lone Ranger" 2013

There is a lot of recreations of properties that are close to people.  From Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Trek to now the Lone Ranger.  With Johnny Depp coming in to play Tonto, people have been waiting to see where they were going to go with this film.  Personally I know I have watched some things of the Lone Ranger, one of my dogs from my childhood was name Kemosabe.  Another dog we recently lost to cancer was named Tonto.  So the Lone Ranger has been a part of my life, just not a media I’ve studied much into.  So while I wanted to see the Lone Ranger movie, I did not except to love the film as much as I do.

Movie Review: Ted

Over the years cartoons got known to be something for children or family entertainment.  Though some shows have rocked that boat to remind people that animation is for people of all ages including adults.  Shows like “The Simpsons”, “Family Guy” and “South Park” have got people a bit more wary of thinking that every cartoon is for kids.  Though when you see a soft fluffy teddy bear being animated on the big screen, it’s hard to think it’s not for children.  Which leads us to a new movie coming to theaters this week, “Ted”.

Review: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

History influences a lot of stories for books, movies, and even lessons for children.  We find movies based on wars, tragedies, and heroes.  Some movies use new characters that they made up, and most movies that use real people try to stay true to the stories that are already known.  Every now and then someone comes up with a new myth of a real person.  Today, a movie is coming to theaters that is based on a man known as a great President of the United States.  Though this film tells a new myth of this president that includes him fighting vampires.

Movie Review: "That's My Boy"

Tomorrow Adam Sandler’s new movie, “That’s My Boy,” hits the big screen.   Recently, Adam Sandler movies are hit and miss type films.  People either love them or hate them, then there’s those of us who don’t care one way or another.  My favorite Adam Sandler’s film is “Little Nicky”, though I have not seen or gone to many of his other films.  When I got tickets for “That’s My Boy”, I questioned if I wanted to go to it or not.  I decided to go and went to check out the film.

Movie Review: Madagascar 3

In 2005 a series of movies started, it was just seen as another CGI film at the time about zoo animals.  These zoo animals get in trouble and are shipped away from their home.  Their goal was to try and find away home.  Though things got rough and they were trapped at their new home.  One of the big draws for this movie was the star list of voice actors they had and of course that the movie is from DreamWorks made it very appealing for moviegoers as well.  Who would have guessed that this film would get two sequels and even a spin-off CGI series?   This week, their third film comes to theaters!

Movie Review: High School

Many different type of movies come out through the year and I find myself usually more into the action, adventure, superhero, or animated features.  To be fair, when I receive a screening pass, I will go to it and just give it a try even if the trailer does not hold my attention. Sometimes I get surprised, like Battleship where I went in not expecting much and came out so thrilled with the fact that I saw the movie.   This was one of those pictures where I went in not sure about it, when I told people I got tickets for this movie the biggest reaction is was “what movie?”  The movie is “High School”.

Movie Review: Snow White and the Huntsman

All of my life I have known the story of Snow White, as I grew up with Disney’s wonderful film as a source of entertainment in my youth.  Though I have never gone out of my way to see another Snow White film. I know earlier this year a movie came out based off of Snow White.  I was not in town for that screening and have not seen the movie.  Though I did get the chance to see the new one coming out tomorrow, “Snow White and the Huntsman”.   Here are my thoughts on this new action adventure.
