Gulliver Returns to Lilliput to Save the Day (Again) or Is It for the Ukraine?

10 Aug

Gulliver Returns

Just why an animated sequel to Jonathan Swift’s classic work, Gulliver’s Travels, exists really must be questioned. Just because actor turned Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelensky said, “I have an idea,” doesn’t mean it should be realised.

I recall Ronald Reagan once said, “We have every right to dream heroic dreams.” And while that drives Gulliver Returns, something must have gone wrong during production. It should not only be a story about what Martin Luther King Jr. once said concerning civil rights, but also reflect upon what’s changed since the titanic hero left to become a world adventurer.

DreamWorks Madagascar Has Gotten A Little Wild After Eight Seasons!

10 Aug

Madagascar A LIttle WildOn Hulu and Peacock TV

DreamWorks Madagascar franchise has a new life with A Little Wild. Just when I thought the last film marked the finale for this series, I’m glad it has continued beyond Netflix. The spinoff about the lemurs aren’t the same. This cartoon looks at the lives of Alex the Lion (voiced by Tucker Chandler), Marty the Zebra (Amir O’Neil), Melman the Giraffe (Luke Lowe) and Gloria the Hippo (Shaylin Becton) learning about what it takes to be friends.

Season Eight recently dropped, and the formula is wearing thin. After all this time, it’s finally showing a glimmer of how their cinematic adventures begin. Most of their tales take place with them enjoying life within the zoo and sometimes in the city. Life in the urban jungle is tough, but these cubs are showing they’re very adaptable.

This series isn’t any different from other cartoons developed for kindergarteners, and after all the latest season drops this year, the only thing fans need to know is that they’re cute as buttons when young, but rather ornery as adults.

Krut The Mythic Wings and The Himmaphan Warriors. On What’s Wrong and Where to Find it

6 Aug

Krut The Mythic Wings

Players must master dodging and be skilled at slaying enemies in Krut The Mythic Wings without getting hit if they are to survive this multi platform video game. It’s available on many systems. If that isn’t hard enough, collecting the soul orbs is even worse. Thus, only the worthy need to apply. Here, you play an eagle-headed warrior of the Garuda race and have to overcome all the obstacles in six levels to master the elements. Having that skill is required before being allowed to get mystical armour before taking on the rock ogres again.

If you have seen the Indonesian movie, Krut: The Himmaphan Warriors, which this game is inspired by, then it’s almost worth comparing. The trailer (see below) shows off a PS3 level graphics akin the very first God of War PS3 videogame. The version we get to play is crisper and much more colourful. And by the mid-way point, we see how this version of Krut gains his Mythic Wings. To note, despite what Google says, it is not available on either Disney Plus or Netflix (Canada). I had no luck finding it from online sources. The cost to import the DVD from YesAsia is crazy when you don’t take advantage of the free international shipping offer (i.e. order a lot), or you can search eBay for it.

Cowabunga Dudes! TMNT Mutant Mayhem is Coming in One Year’s Time!

TMNT Mutant Mayhem

Although the details are scant, Seth Rogan and Paramount Pictures wants fans to know that in precisely a year’s time, TMNT Mutant Mayhem will hit theatres! This animated film will hit theatres August 4, 2023. And over at Otakunoculture.com, we love our turtles! Well, minus the Michael Bay films, that is.

This producer said in the past that it’ll focus on these turtles in the half shell will be embrace everything that a presumedly modern teen will face. This work was first announced to be in development in 2020, and it’s good that we’re finally hearing there’s movement in this project. Nickelodeon plans to follow-up with additional projects too, and this other studio says it will focus on the villains. With the film, we can expect it to bring on some fond favourites and perhaps create some new ones. Baxter Stockman has always been that fly on the wall which our own Ed Sum hopes can be more than the comedic relief from the classic series I grew up with.

In addition to this logo announcment, the TMNT Mutant Mayhem mural is spotted in New York City on the corner of Canal St. and Lafayette.

From Dragon Master to Dragon Knight. Can Kung Fu Panda Regain His Honour?

2 Aug

Kung Fu Panda Dragon Knight Poster

Available to view on Netflix
Spoiler Alert

Po (Jack Black) has to make “The Journey to the West” in true Monkey King fashion if he’s to regain his honour. In the latest entry to the Kung Fu Panda franchise, he’s neither the Dragon Master nor the Dragon Knight (the title of this latest series) because his tomfoolery destroyed a village. Also, he let it lose its most precious protected relic to two weasels. If he can’t recover the stolen WuGao Gauntlet with Luthera of Landreth (Rita Ora), a bear from England, then he’ll have a lot more to lose. But this female knight has problems too.

If this plot sounds familiar, that’s because we’ve seen it before in Avatar: The Last Avatar and Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu. It combines ideas from the early seasons. One is in finding your true potential all over again. To see Po wanting to see people to have faith in him is far more important than the other arc about saving the world from a Thanos level threat.
