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.

Review: The Secret History of the Foot Clan #2

TMNT_Foot02_cvrAShredder the villain that holds the most power in just the mention of his name for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise.  Fans all around the world will answer that Shredder is the true arch enemy of the Ninja Turtles.  Though any who talk to me know that I have mostly been disappointed in the Shredder, as he has just been thrown in as evil.  No real rhyme or reason for what he does.  The only universe that gave Shredder a real background on what got him to go dark and full of anger was the Mirage Comics, until now.

Review: The Secret History of the Foot Clan #1

TMNT_Foot01_cvrAIn Ninja Turtle history one of the things that keeps changing is the history of the Foot Clan.  A handful of medias have covered this, most changing it in their own ways.  The IDW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Series has made it very clear that their version of each of the characters that we know and love are different from how we’ve ever known them.  Including the Foot Clan.  We know so little about this new Foot Clan, but we do know that the Shredder is brought back to life.  Karai has been leading the Foot till Shredder is back.  Shredder killed Yoshi and his family back in his previous life.

1991 Coming Out of Their Shells Tour Chicago

It was 1991, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were going strong around the world, from the movies, toys, cartoons, and the live concert was still going around the country.  This was a smaller show that was edited down from the original “Coming Out of Their Shells Tour”.  They came to Michigan to do a show.  I was staying at my aunt’s during that time and was not able to convince anyone to take me to the show, since I saw the full show back in October.  I was crushed. I wanted to see it alive again so badly.  Disappointed that I missed the show, the only thing I got was a poster that was badly beaten left hanging in a store on their pinboard.

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: Dark Shadows

In 1966 a new kind of soap opera hit the TV, one about vampires, witches, ghost, and mystery.  This series followed a young lady named Victoria Winters, who moved to a house which was known throughout the town as being haunted.  The show was finding its footing for the first 200 episodes, as they gave us a few mystery storylines along with the normal soap drama.
