The All Things Fun! New Comics Vidcast is shot live in a real comics and gaming store in West Berlin, NJ – All Things Fun! – co-hosts Ed (the retailer) Evans, Allison (the fangirl) Eckel and Glenn (the misanthrope) Walker discuss the new comics out this week in two fun video segments, now in high definition, and also available on YouTube. See it here!
The discussion continues in segment two including: Ed’s Marvels, Warren Ellis’ Secret Avengers #16, Spider-Island, Mad Love, Ed’s indies, pin-up covers, Ed’s trades – the real trades, and the new pantsless Aquaman villains.
In the final special summer third segment with Thomas, the All Things Fun! Kids Vidcast features a nine-year old kid’s opinions on comics and toy-related genres. This segment includes his thoughts on: Sonic the Hedgehog #228, Star Wars Adventures Chewbacca and the Slavers of the Shadowlands, Justice League #1, Decepticon cap, Marvel Frenzies, the Red Skull vs. Tigger, Mad Love, and the glowing Green Lantern jigsaw puzzle.
And be back here every Wednesday morning at 11:30 AM EST to watch the new broadcast, and thereafter throughout the week!
Winnie the Pooh ~ I saw this one not in the theaters, but as an added treat on the first night of my vacation onboard the Disney Dream, and let’s get real, nothing trumps seeing a Disney flick, like seeing a Disney flick on the Disney boat. They have built, on all their ships, beautiful old-fashioned movie theaters full of the glory of yesteryear where there are no bad seats and it feels like an event to see any film. Last year, seeing Old Dogs on board made the hell of that cinematic experience wonderful. Loews in Cherry Hill should take note. Atmosphere counts for a lot.
Unlike Old Dogs, I liked Winnie the Pooh quite a lot, mostly because Tigger is my favorite Disney character, I even liked The Tigger Movie, and that was pretty bad, although it was Gone with the Wind compared to Old Dogs. I love A.A. Milne’s characters, by Disney or otherwise, but have not been fond of newer versions of their adventures. This new animated film is respectful of the original The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and is a proper next chapter.
There is a mix of both old and new voice cast, with Jim Cummings taking on both Tigger and Pooh as well as a few other additions like Craig Ferguson and John Cleese. Only one oddity sticks out and that’s Jack Boulter as Christopher Robin, and that’s only because it’s markedly different, not wrong. And also, just like a Marvel movie, you must wait through the credits to the very end. No, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury doesn’t ask Tigger to join the Avengers (awww…) but it’s still well worth it.
