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?

Review Corner: "Soul Eater"

Soul EaterRecently I was introduced to an anime named “Soul Eater”, about children that are being trained by Death to be warriors. From the beginning it is clear that this world isn’t Earth. It’s a fun world of magic and warriors.

One of the things that pulled me into this series was their way of handling this darker side of life, giving it the light twist of insanity. You could see this from the beginning of the series with the faces upon the Sun and the Moon. I’ve always enjoyed that bit of twist to the darkness. Much like Halloween Town in “Nightmare Before Christmas”, this town had that feeling that these dangerous things were only out there to live and do their job, while having fun.

RSD and Me

RSD - Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome

I’m writing this story to help get awareness out there for something that I have lived with for six years now. RSD, also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome, is very painful and debilitating disorder. Someone just touching a person who has RSD can cause pain to that person with the slightest touch to the area where the RSD is affecting the person. For me, it’s my right arm. Here is my story, one I’ve told thousands of times in the last six years.

DVD Review: Toy Story 3

Toy Story 3Fresh on DVD is the third part of Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story movies.  Toy Story started back in 1995, and became an instant hit.  A fun original movie about toys, facing the dangers that enter their life and getting use to a new toy in the group.  An adventure that anyone could enjoy. Though when Toy Story 2 rolled around, fans were wary of the idea of a sequel to the CGI movie that they all enjoyed.  To our surprise Toy Story 2 was just as good as the first, facing another issue that toys have to deal with, being “in or out of package”.  Well written, the characters stayed true to the first movie.  The movie crew some how pulled it off.   Though could they do it again with a third movie?  Early this year Toy Story 3 came to theaters, and just this last week it was released on DVD.
