17 Classic Pizza Scenes in Movies, From ‘Do the Right Thing’ to ‘Deadpool’ (Videos)
You’ll be hard pressed to find a franchise that has found such longevity in such a ridiculous concept as “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” The “Tmnt” series is loaded with bizarre quirks, with one of the most famous being the turtles’ undying love for pizza. It’s one of the most well-known examples of this foodstuff in modern cinema, but it’s far from the only one. Arguably the most iconic moment in Mike Myers‘ career is his lampooning of product placement deals in “Wayne’s World,” a scene that starts with him taking a nice bite of some Pizza Hut with the logo...

Rise Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles character art revealed

Matt Edwards Feb 2, 2018

Nickelodeon has unveiled character art for their upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon reboot...

Rise Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be hitting the channel later this year. Ahead of that, a Facebook Live broadcast featuring executive producers Andy Suriano and Ant Ward alongside long time Ninja Turtles voice actor and Rise voice director Rob Paulson was used to reveal what some of the key characters of the show will look like. The broadcast was hosted by Eric Bauza, who will voice Splinter in the new show, and also featured Tmnt co-creator Kevin Eastman drawing a Turtle sketch live.

The new art style seeks to distinguish the pizza-scoffing reptilian ninjas from one another, with each a different species of turtle. Raphael (voiced by Omar Miller), who will lead the Turtles in Rise, is a snapping turtle, Leonardo (Ben Schwartz) is a red eared slider (hence the

First Look at the Rise Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Tutles Animated Series Revealed

Nickelodeon has been developing a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series called Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the creative team is looking to mix it up. Today we have our first look at the main character of the new series and as you can see, there's a whole new visual style for Raphael, Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and April O'Neil.

I'll be honest, I don't really care for the new style. It comes off as rushed and cheap. I understand that this is a kids show, but even kids shows can have a quality style and design. Here's the synopsis that was previously released:

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles follows Raphael, Leonardo, Donatello and Michelangelo on all-new adventures as they seek to unlock the mystical secrets of New York City. From the tallest skyscraper to the dankest sewer drain, the Turtles will encounter absurd new

Blu-ray Review: Boo 2! A Madea Halloween, A Tale Of Morally Upright Fright

Before last weekend, I had never seen a single Tyler Perry film. Not a Madea movie, none of his non-Madea films, not a play, not even that one where he plays the Patterson cop. I think the only time I'd actually seen him perform at all was as the crazy doctor in that one Tmnt movie from a couple of summers back. Let's just say that I never thought his thing was my thing. However, when an e-mail came through asking if I'd like to review Boo 2!, the sequel to his comedy-horror film from 2016 (titled Boo!, of course), I figured why not, what was there to lose? Before stepping into the Terrordome of the McU (Madea Cinematic Universe), I thought it would be...

In Praise of Sam Rockwell

Tom Jolliffe looks at the career of the vastly underrated Sam Rockwell

So after doing a piece on the fantastic Frances McDormand, sticking with the Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri connection, it seemed apt to do a piece on an actor who has always slipped just below the radar. Sam Rockwell is always great and he’s had his share of roles in critically acclaimed films. Not that Oscar recognition is the foremost watermark on an actors CV, but the fact that even a nomination at this point in his career has eluded him is more than a little harsh.

He’s had a prolific career with some great films (and not so great). Even in some of the less stellar efforts always feature a solid turn from Rockwell. Similarly, he’s had significant parts, maybe fourth/fifth billed in a film. It’s hard to get an Oscar nomination

John Cena to voice a new villain in Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

THR is reporting that WWE star John Cena is set to continue his transition away from the ring, having signed a three-project deal with Nickelodeon which will see him lending his voice to a villain in the animated series Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, executive producing a competition series Keep It Spotless, and returning to host the Kids’ Choice Awards.

Cena’s character in the new Tmnt animated series is called Baron Draxum, and is described as “an alchemist warrior mutant who seeks to turn all of humanity into mutants.” The original character will debut in the series premiere, and recur throughout the first season.

“I’m thrilled to partner with Nickelodeon on three big projects that run the range of what kids love: slime-filled live events, awesomely cool animation and competition shows where kids take their shot at being the best,” said Cena. “It’s an honor

Rise Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Cartoon Series Voice Cast Announced

A new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon is on its way to Nickelodeon, called Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and they recently announced the cast that will make up the team of ninja turtles.

Ben Schwartz has been cast as Leonardo. I greatly disliked Schwartz’s character Jean-Ralphio on Parks and Recreation, but that’s because he did such a great job, and while I normally wouldn’t like the idea of him being Leo, but it sounds like some changes are being made to the show to make it fresh. Leo is no longer the leader, but rather the cooler, rebellious brother while Raphael (voiced by Omar Miller) takes charge as leader. Donatello (voiced by Silicon Valley's Josh Brener) and still seems to be a techno-geek and Brandon Mychal Smith’s Michelangelo sounds like he’ll be the lovable Mikey we know.

The Classic 80s Japanese Sci-Fi Battle Mech Property Ma.K is Getting a Film Adaptation also Watch a 1985 Short Film

It producer Roy Lee, is developing a very cool new live-action film project based on the classic 1980s Japanese battle mech sci-fi property Ma.K. If you're not familiar with the property, it involved giant robots, two-legged tanks, and an epic battle for survival.

Ma.K was created by artist and sculptor Kow Yokoyama and was introduced in the early 80s in Hobby Japan magazine. It was a monthly comic that was also tied into customizable model kits. They ended up finding a strong and large cult following. Yokoyama is also known for working on films such as Star Wars and Blade Runner.

This could seriously end up being an incredibly epic movie! I just hope that Lee ends up bringing on a talented team of individuals to bring it to life. Here are the story details:

The story is set far, far into the future after a nuclear war caused survivors to flee Earth.

The Tick review: a laugh-out-loud superhero satire

Ron Hogan Aug 25, 2017

The Tick, out now on Amazon Prime Video, is huge fun. Here's how the show achieves what its creator envisioned 21 years ago...

In 1994, I was about to be a freshman in high school. Despite being “too old” for cartoons, there wasn’t really anything else on television on Saturday mornings while I was waiting for wrestling to show up on my television screen. I remember most of the cartoons I saw only in the vaguest terms: the creepy face of Louie Anderson’s gargoyle animated child or a screaming purple cat. I know the name of both shows because I looked them up prior to writing this article, but I couldn’t tell you anything about them. However, one show I watched regularly in the mid to late 90s stuck with me well into adulthood, and that’s the 1994-96 animated version of The Tick.

Idw announces new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Usagi Yojimbo crossover

Two decades after their last encounter, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will step foot into the world of Usagi Yojimbo once again this summer for a special once-shot comic from Idw Publishing.

“I had wanted to reunite Usagi and the Tmnt for awhile, but these are not the Turtles that he knew,” said Usagi Yojimbo creator Stan Sakai. “Relationships have to be reestablished, suspicions overcome, and trust earned. The survival of all Japan literally rests on them working as a team.”

“Stan and I both started out the same year, 1984, and here we are still living the dream telling stories with characters we created over three decades ago,” added Kevin Eastman, co-creator of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. “I love the fact that our two creations were intertwined from the beginning and could not be more thrilled that Stan is coming back to tell a new story in the Idw Tmnt comics universe.

The myth of screenwriting credits

Simon Brew Apr 3, 2017

Why the writers credited on a movie are rarely the only ones who put the screenplay together....

The Wizard Of Oz, since its initial release in 1939, has richly deserved its long-cemented status as an all-time classic. A regular resident in the IMDb top 250 films of all time, and a part of many people’s DVD collection, it’s a film that I’d wager more and more people fall in love with each year. Long may that continue.

Emily Whitten’s New York Comic Con 2016 Round-Up!

  • Comicmix
New York Comic Con has once again rushed by in a giant, fun, crazy blur, and although I didn’t get to nearly all the things I was hoping to, I did have a rockin’ time and see some really cool things I can share.

The first of these were a few great panels I landed seats for, including, as is my tradition, the Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles panel. If you don’t know I love the current Tmnt, then what are you, new here? But seriously, I love it. And each panel I have gone to brings something new and different.

This panel (with Andrea Romano (voice director), Eric Bauza (Tiger Claw), Kevin Michael Richardson (The Shredder), Greg Cipes (Mikey), Rob Paulsen (Donnie), and Ciro Nieli (Executive Producer)) was particularly fun, because one of the things they did was a live read of episode #420, “The Super Shredder,” which

‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Vol.14: Order From Chaos’ Review

Written by Tom Waltz, Kevin Eastman, Curnow | Art by Ken Garing, Michael Dialynas, Ronda Pattison

Plot:

A new age begins for the Tmnt. The epic events of the past have created new opportunities for the future and new dangers. Will the Family stay united in the face of a devastating new foe?

Verdict:

Well with how the 50th issue ended, with Shredder dying and Splinter taking his place as leader of the Foot Clan, it wasn’t surprising to guess that the following instalments would explore the power vacuum that the former’s death had created and a transitional phase of the series. This is all extremely interesting as we get to see the points of view of various characters, including characters we already know and new ones that are introduced in this run of issues between #51 to #55.

So firstly we get to see what is happening with Splinter, Leo,
