Wolfman Mac's Chriller Drive-In

"Spider Baby", the Original "Little Shop of Horror", and "King Kong Escapes" all have something in common these days. Night time Horror Host Shows. Usually on Friday or Saturday night you can find some TV show with a creepy host showing bad old movies, making fun of them and doing their own things in between the clips of the movie. In July 2007 a new face came to the world of Horror Host, Wolfman Mac.

TMNT Fan Art

All across the web you have different fan art, from old vampires to unicorns to Dexter Morgan to The Power Puff girls. Even shows that disappeared from TV over 20 years ago have artists out there still drawing their childhood heroes. Of course Ninja Turtles are no exception to the rule.

Ivey's Farmville

In June 2009, Facebook launched a game called Farmville. This game was created by Zynga, which has been creating popular games that are played on both Facebook and MySpace, such as Mafia Wars. When the game first arrived on Facebook, I found the posts annoying as it flooded my wall. I ended up blocking the app without giving it a try. I did not want to waste my time with anymore online games, as I was already playing Mafia Wars and a few other games on MySpace. Why would I want to join Farmville?

Movie Review: Green Hornet

One thing that will never get old at the theater is movie makers bringing comic book heroes to life on the big screen.  It has been going on for many years now and will keep going for years to come.

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.

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: "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?
