Live Action

Changes of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Close your eyes, take in a deep breath.. with that breath take in everything you know about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  Now release the breath letting that information go just for a little bit.  Remember that information will always be there, the old shows and comics are not erased.  They will remain in the public eyes for years to come.  Though now we get to see a new, and the best way to view something new is with fresh eyes and without comparison.  Nothing can and will replace your favorite media of Ninja Turtles, and the new is not looking to replace it.  The new is only opening doors for new fans, and giving us old fans something else to look into.

The wait of a new TMNT Film

Movies are something that people put a lot of hope into.  This one thing that takes a lot of work and a lot of money, in the hopes of millions of people going to see.  They are one of the few joys that people still get excited about in these hard days of unemployment and depression.  Many big cities, like Detroit, are falling apart as businesses are closing down.  Yet if you go to a movie theater, no matter what city you’re in, there is always people there.  What makes movies so appealing?  Why will we line up to see films that last only 2 hours when we can watch a TV series that last so much longer, with more character growth, comedy and action?  Whatever the reason, it leaves people asking me all the time “When is the new Ninja Turtle movie coming out?”  “What do you think the new Ninja Turtle Movie will be about?”

TMNT Interview: Sara Seidman Vance

Earlier this year Cowabunga Corner was able to get in touch with Sara Seidman Vance, a crew member from two of the live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles films. Sara worked on TMNT 1 as the costume dresser for Donatello and did make up and stand in work for TMNT 2.

Sara was nice enough to agree to an interview about her time working on the Ninja Turtle movies and giving us a little update on what she's doing now. 

TV Review: The Walking Dead

AMC’s The Walking Dead – Episode 1

What can I say about it?

My expectations were high for this new television series. I never like getting my expectations up too high, just because I’ve been so disappointed in the past. But, I knew the comic it is based off of is good, I knew the director is pretty darn amazing, and what I have seen of the makeup for the zombies was impressive. It was difficult not to have high expectations.

Thankfully, my expectations have been met and pretty much exceeded.

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’.

Cowabunga Corner #16

In this episode of “Cowabunga Corner” I give my review of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3.

Cowabunga Corner #15

In this episode of “Cowabunga Corner” I share my visit to the set of “Ninja Turtles : The Next Mutation”.

This is the first time I’m sharing any copies of this video. Back in July 1997 I got to go to Vancouver, B.C. and visit the set of Ninja Turtles : The Next Mutation. I spent two days on the set, and had an amazing time. It was hard to cram this into 10 minutes, so all of the video is fast forward.

Cowabunga Corner #6

In this episode I talk about the four TMNT movies. Just a fast review of the movies, I will do a review of all four movies with each having their own blog at another time. This is just an over view of them.

Please do your own reviews as a reply here. What do you think of the movies, which is your favorite.

Music in this episode:
“Fly with me” by Steep

Cowabunga Corner #4

In this episode I speak about “Ninja Turtles : The Next Mutation”. A series that was loved when it was aired, though is now left in the dark for the most part.

I personally still enjoy the Next Mutation and encourage anyone who have not seen it to give it a try before judging it. A try is more than the first few episodes. Check out some of the later episodes like “Trust Dr. Quease” and “Unchain My Heart”.
