ThunderCats – A Great Cartoon Classic

I remember sprinting out of my elementary school building, speeding as fast as I could. With my book bag slinging carelessly in the wind. There was no way that I was going to miss the popular theme song to my favorite animated cartoon “ThunderCats.”

I would get home just in time to flick on the television, and join in the opening of the theme song that began with the leader of the Thundercats showcasing his expert swordsmanship, and shouting. “Thunder, Thunder, ThunderCats ho!” I would twirl, and kick, trying hard to mimic the moves of the Thundercats, for the duration of the song.

As I plopped down in front of the television, with my mouth ajar, “ThunderCats” would begin. For thirty minutes I would be fixated on the television. Lion-O, Panthro, Cheetara, Tygra, Wiley kit, and Wiley Kat, battled the evil forces of their arch nemesis Mumm-Ra. When ready to do battle, Mumm-Ra would trade in his decrepit appearance by reciting an incantation. This would transform him into the powerful, flying, energy ball throwing Mumm-Ra the Ever living. Mumm-Ra was on a quest to get his hands on the infamous Eye of Thundera.

Watching Lion-O, and his …

Get Smart Movie Review

Get Smart was a very enjoyable movie. It was funny and made me laugh. That by itself is enough for me to get my money’s worth. But it was more than your typical comedy. It had an intriguing plot involving spies and secret agents and bombs and evening wear.

It all had to do with Maxwell Smart (Steve Carell) who was a desk jockey for the government spy agency, CONTROL, until he finally got a promotion to field agent. The female lead was Anne Hathaway as Agent 99. She and Max were trying to stop a Russian nuclear weapon operation that was trying to sell bombs to unstable countries.

The special effects and stunts (a lot of people and things smashing into other people and things) were first rate. And of course there were the requisite explosions, plus a fair amount of gun play. The penultimate chase scene was a classic battle of banner-pulling prop plane vs. Cadillac SUV. It was edge-of-your-seat, action-packed and very entertaining. Throw in deadly laser beams and a lethal Swiss army knife and you have everything you’d expect from a spy movie worthy of the genre. There was even something for classical music lovers as …

Movie Review: Baby Mama

Tina Fey is easily one of Hollywood’s best talents. She has the ability to write, act, produce, sing, and everything in between. Her sitcom, 30 Rock, is one of the most well written television series of all time. So why, then, does Baby Mama not feel quite as funny as what Tina Fey fans are used to?

For all intents and purposes, Baby Mama is well acted. As previously stated, Tina Fey is one of the best Hollywood has to offer. She has little trouble being funny, while also showing a surprising capability for dramatic situations.

Greg Kinnear is also excellent as Fey’s love interest. A rare underrated actor, Kinnear does not need to try to be funny, instead allowing the situation to be humorous and acting like a normal person would. Few actors try for the understated performance, especially in comedies, but Kinnear is an expert at his craft.

Where Baby Mama starts to rip at the seam is with supporting characters. Aside from Fey and Kinnear’s characters, everyone else is displayed as a caricature. Dax Shepard is a typical white trash dirt bag, Steve Martin is a sort-of-creepy new age business mogul, Sigourney Weaver is a perpetually …

Best TV Show of the 80s

What other 1980s TV show spun off so many big-screen movies? Or is about to spin off two new outer space games for PC, Xbox 360, PSP and DS? Or has a world-wide fan club that still goes to conventions dressed up in fantastically detailed home-made costumes? Of course, it’s no surprise that Star Trek: The Next Generation was and is such a success. The show, based on the most awesome first generation TV show of all time, the original Star Trek, successfully continued the unbroken excellence of Gene Roddenberry’s sociological storytelling.

Star Trek: The Next Generation began airing in 1987, and got off to a slightly rocky start based on two main things; the whole set of new characters, and the new design of the Enterprise star ship. It was a bit difficult for Trekkers (Star Trek fans) to accept a new design because in the original series, Captain Kirk loved the ship itself in an obsessive sort of way, and so most of the viewing fans adopted the same mindset. As with most updated series in the TV and movie industry, a new cast of characters is usually not well received at first by ardent fans of the original series …
