30 Day Movie Challenge Part 2: 6-10.

Day 06 - Your favorite comedy movie

The Pink Panther is so funny it is really hard to beat in pure laughter.

Day 07 - A movie that makes you happy
We are basically emotions less when it comes to movies we have one of the three reactions to movies after watching them: WOW! That was awesome! Examples: Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones, The Matrix, Captain America ect. Reaction number 2: Neutral reaction examples: I am Number Four,. Reaction number 3: Angrier because movie screws up a great franchise or is a major disappointment. Example: Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,
Since Star Wars always makes us feel like "Awesome the movie is even better then I remembered" that would be the choice.

Day 08 - A movie that makes you sad
As we said above we are emotionless when comes to movies.

Day 09 - A movie that you know practically the whole script of
We have seen it like 40 times or more so yeah we basically know the script.

Day 10 - Your favorite director

Our favorite Directors are George Lucus, Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson. A lot of people hate George Lucus for making the Star Wars prequels but liked them. Even people seem to forget that directed the first Star Wars movie. Steven Spielberg is arguably the most famous director ever and directed many great movie like the original Indiana Jones trilogy. Peter Jackson directed The Lord of the Rings trilogy, which are the best movies after Star Wars.

Star Wars The Clone Wars: Friends and Enemies Review.

First off we there is some unfortunate news. Ian Abercrombie, who voice acts for Palpatine in The Clone Wars, has passed on. What are they going to do next season for his character?

Did anyone else notice the Indiana Jones hat when Bane was looking for a new hat?

Thoughts: After last week's episode we had high hopes for this one and it didn't disappoint. It had action, great plot, Cad Bane, a Cantina, and munch more. I don't know how the episode fit so munch woth out feeling over stuffed.  Picking up from were the last episode left off we see Cad Bane, Obi-Wan in disguise as Rako and Moralo Eval crash landed on the planet Nal Hutta to escape from being captured. When they went to a bouty hunter pawn shop to buy new cloths and when Cad Bane was looking for a hat you can see a hat that looks just like Indiana Jones's hat. The scene when Anakin eneters the Cantina to look for who he think is Rako is great. The detailed in the Cantina was excellent with the scum of the galaxy and complete with Twi'lek dancers. And the episode also highlighted Anakin's path to the Dark Side. The battle at the end of the episode was really good ending with Cad Bane's quote “You’re lucky we’re in a hurry, little lady…we’ll have to dance another time”. I don't wht but the way Bane said "Little lady" like the other episodes is awesome.

The Good: Cad Bane was awesome, The Cantina scene was very detailed, Great fight at the end, Best episode since the Umbara epsidoes,

The Bad:

Plot: 9.6/10- Somehow it managed to fit a lot of goodness into one with out feeling over stuffed.

Action: 8.8/10- The battle at the end between Bane, Anakin, and Obi-Rako was excellently animated.

Acting: 9.5/10- The normal cast is soild as usual.

Art Style: 9.8/10- Nal Hutta looked just you would expect a planet that the Hutts live on should look like, slimy. It is funny if you translate to from Huttese to English the name is Glorious Jewel.

Overall: 9.6/10- Overall "Friends and Enemies" is one of the best Clone Wars epsido since the Umbara story arc.

Closing Comments: After this episode we have high hopes for the next one.

If you want a second option Click Here to read Savanna at Pandas, Lightsabers and Cameras, oh my!!  review for the episode.

30 Day Movie Challenge Part 1: 1-5.

Also we have writen a guest movie review for Forrest Gump on our friend's blog Click Here to read the review and please leave a comment. And expect a review for the recent Clone Wars episode coming tomorrow.

Day 01 - Your favorite movie
Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back

Day 02 - The last movie you watched
Since has been a few months since watching The Empire Strikes Back I watched it again.
Day 03 - Your favorite action/adventure movie
We are sure if Lord of the Rings is an "Action Adventure" movie it is more of an Action Epic so our other favorite is Indinana Jones and The Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Day 04 - Your favorite horror movie
We never understood the point of horror movies but we do like JAWS.

Day 05 - Your favorite drama movie
In general we don't like dramas but Forrest Gump is a very good movie.

Ed the Happy Clown

Internet, I've got the just-sent-a-book-off-to-print sweats. I'm not sure that I can even put it into words; it's a hodgepodge of delight, relief, and fear, generally in that order…though not always. But today delight is ranking high above the rest. I feel like the luckiest gal for even getting to talk to Chester Brown from time to time, but when I get to work on one of his books, it really is something to phone home about (…unless it's Paying for It. That was hard to explain to Grams).

Incase you all don't keep your old serialized Eds out on the coffee table like I do, here's a selection of the D+Q covers to put you in the mood, my mood (man, they're awesome!):

Ed the Happy Clown will debut in May at TCAF. See ya all there.

More Pippi

I almost forgot. Here's an article on Ingrid Vang Nyman (google translate version, sorry) that sheds some light on the mysterious illustrator/cartoonist.

And did you know that My Neighbor Totoro creator Miyazaki worked on a Pippi feature but it was shut down? That's too bad but there is a ton of great concept art here. {Special thanks to a couple of peeps who tweeted this link to us. Awesome!}

I wish I was in Sweden right at this very moment!!

I wish I was there because there is an exhibition of my new favorite cartoonist Ingrid Vang Nyman at Millesgarden. Oh, you know, the original Pippi Longstocking illustrator, who later drew the comics. You know, the comics we are publishing this Fall. Yeah, you know. Also, a nice blogpost by our new pal Joakim showcasing a piece of original art! Wow!

Dan Zettwoch and the Art of Logo Design

You Dan Zettwoch followers out there will already know that the man has got an eye for commercial design, and this week his Leon Beyond takes a tour through the arched logos of St. Louis past.

This, however, is neither his first nor last foray into the fine art of logos; his upcoming book, Birdesye Bristoe, even features a logo guessing game that I've included for you below!

Braveheart Review.

If you have seen the movie please give it any score from 1 to 10.

JT/King Valun at The Window on the South requested that we review a "Braveheart" movies so we watched and here it is.

Thoughts: We had very high expectations for it and it was close to our expectations. It is definitely making our Top 50 Movies. After watching it, being the fans of history we are, we wondered how munch of it was historically accurate. It was very inaccurate,which isn't necessarily a bad thing, two of the main characters ages were way off like. French princess Isabelle who at the time of The Battle Falkirk was three years old. If you have seen the movie you would know that would mean that a major point in the plot would not be there. And Edward son of Longshanks was not born until seven years after William Wallance's uprising. And The Battle of Stirling Bridge was missing the bridge. Not to mention that the Kilt was not worn by the Scots until a few hundred years later. The movie actually loosely based on the Historical Ballad by Blind Harry's Wallace. Click Here. to read the history about it. Although there was some of the movie that was historically accurate. We really don't mind that the movie is Historically inaccurate because it is a movie and it is fiction with some of the movie being based on fact.

Directed by: Mel Gibson
Genre: Action, War,
Release Date: May 24, 1995 (1995-05-24)
Running Time: 177 minutes
MMPA rating: R

The Good: One amazing and epic battle scene, Some other good action scenes, Inspirational story, Epic speech,  Good acting, Surprisingly humorous,

The Bad:

Warning: This movie is rated "R" for extreme graphic violence, and other mature content.

Plot: The following plot summery is copied from Wikipedia.com.
In the 13th century, after several years of political unrest, Scotland is invaded and conquered by King Edward I of England (known as "Longshanks") (Patrick McGoohan). Longshanks summons the defeated Scottish nobles to a meeting, but instead of discussing terms as they were led to expect, he simply hangs them en masse.
Young William Wallace witnesses the treachery of Longshanks, survives the death of his father and brother, and is taken abroad by his uncle where he is educated. Many years later, Longshanks grants his noblemen land and privileges in Scotland, including Primae Noctis, the right of the lord to take a newly married Scottish woman into his bed on the wedding night. When he returns home, Wallace (Mel Gibson), intending to live peacefully, falls in love with his childhood sweetheart Murron MacClannough (Catherine McCormack), and they marry in secret so that she does not have to spend a night in the bed of the English lord.
Their marriage is eventually discovered and when an English soldier tries to rape Murron, Wallace fights off several soldiers and the two attempt to flee. But Murron is captured and publicly executed by the village sheriff, who proclaims "an assault on the King's soldiers is the same as an assault on the King himself." In retribution, Wallace and several villagers slaughter the English garrison and execute the sheriff. Watch the movie to see what happens next.

Plot: 9.2/10- The story is loosely based on true events. The story is very Inspirational and very well made.

Action: 9.0/10- Braveheart is had some great action scenes but it is not action packed movie.

Acting: 9.2/10- Overall  acting was top notch with Mel Gibson's preformance being the stand out best.

Special effects: 8.5/10- We normally don't rate movies like for special effects but the effects for the blood

Soundtrack: 8.9/10- The soundtrack fitts the feel of the movie perfectly and it is very inspirational just like the movie.

Comedy: 7.9/10- We were not exspecting munch humor in the movie and we were surprised, in a good way.

Overall: 9.1/10- Overall Braveheart is a great epic and delivers on the story.

Closing comments: Braveheart is one of the few movies that actually deserved to win the Oscar for best picture.

Warning: This movie is rated "R" for extreme graphic violence, and other mature content.

Recommended for: Action movie fans, War movie fans, Epic movie fans,

The Fellowship of the Ring Trailer vs. The Hobbit Trailer.

In your option which of these trailer is better? If you haven't seen The Lord of the Rings movies please give us your option. Because your option will be unbais. If you have seen The Lord of the Rings movies we want to know which ones do you think is a better trailer. In our option The Hobbit trailer is better but we are not saying that it is going to be a better movie than The Fellowship of the Ring. It might be an unfair comparison but if I knew nothing about either movie I would most likely pick The Hobbit.

D+Q to Publish Original Astrid Lindgren & Ingrid Vang Nyman PIPPI LONGSTOCKING comics & MOOMIN in color.

Scheduled for Fall 2012, Drawn & Quarterly will be publishing the mid-century comic book reprint PIPPI MOVES IN under its children's imprint, ENFANT, it was announced today by D+Q Creative Director & Acquiring Editor Tom Devlin. Pippi Longstocking is Sweden's best-known children's export and has enthralled generations of children the world over with her fabulous exploits at Villa Villekulla, where she lives with her horse and monkey. Countless editions have been sold of the chapter books in over 60 languages. For the first time in English, Drawn & Quarterly will publish the first of a three-volume set of original Pippi Longstocking comics written by award-winning and world famous children's author Astrid Lindgren, drawn by original Pippi artist Ingrid Vang Nyman and translated by esteemed translator Tiina Nunnally. World English rights were negotiated with the Rabén & Sjögren Agency.

"When I was at the Helsinki Comics Festival this last September, I stumbled across a Finnish translation of the comic, and I was immediately awestruck and fascinated by two things," said Devlin. "The first was that there were unpublished in English Pippi Longstocking comics by the iconic Astrid Lindgren and the second being the incredible talent of the original artist Ingrid Vang Nyman."

Originally published in the Swedish magazine Humpty Dumpty in 1957-1959, a decade after the original books, the comics re-imagine the classic chapter book stories and spotlight both Lindgren's brilliant writing and Vang Nyman's bold bright colors that seem presciently and eerily contemporary. The original illustrator for the chapter books, Vang Nyman was a very talented children's book illustrator and an avant-garde champion of the importance of children's literature who insisted that art in children's books needed to meet the same aesthetic standards as art in any other medium. Sadly Vang Nyman never achieved international success, and tragically committed suicide in 1959 due to mental health issues, while Lindgren went on to become one of the world's best loved writers with over 145 million books sold worldwide.

To join this unearthing of a midcentury classic comic strip, D+Q's ENFANT will be relaunching for Fall 2012 the MOOMIN THE COMPLETE COMIC STRIP by Tove Jansson in full color and in kid friendly flexicovers and will spotlight single stories. There are currently over 100,000 units of the MOOMIN hardcovers in print in English. World English rights for the relaunch were negotiated with Bulls Press.

Both series will be distributed by Farrar, Straus & Giroux in the US; by Raincoast Books in Canada and PGUK in the United Kingdom.

Say Hello To Amber Albrecht

Do you know Amber Albrecht? We're in the process of finishing production on Idyll, her upcoming Petit Livre, and I couldn't be more excited! Amber is based in Montreal and was a student at Concordia a few years before I was, and all of my professors raved about her while I was there. Idyll collects a series of her ethereal and kind of goth-y drawings and silkscreens that she has shown throughout Canada and internationally, and it will be in stores in April.

Star Wars 30 Question Meme: Day Five

21: ESB moment

Other than the "I am your father" scene the attack on Hoth and the "Who's scruffy looking" scenes are great. We are also planing on making a Top Empire Strikes Back scenes.

22: Favorite RotJ moment
The duel at the end of ROTJ and the ending scene with Darth Vader and Luke were the two best scenes.

23: Something you wish was different
We can't think of any thing to change.

24: A character you dislike
We hate Ziro the Hutt! We like Jabba the Hutt but we hate Ziro! After he died we want the show to play the Ewok Celebration song below.

25: Favorite EU book
I just started this last week and I am over half way though it. And I can't stop! I love it! Look for the review something next month. This is by far the best book I have read. And don't like many books in general.

26: Favorite Obi-Wan Kenobi Quote

The whole "These aren't the droids you're looking for" scene are some of his best quotes and "May the force will be with you, always".

27: Favorite Yoda quote

I don't think this quote needs any intro.

28: Favorite Darth Vader quote
Vader has so many awesome so are some of them.

"I sense something; a presence I've not felt since..."
"I have you now!"

"All too easy."

"No. I am your father."

"Search your feelings. You know it to be true."

"Yes, my master."

"If you only knew the power of the dark side. Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father."

29: Best personal Star Wars memory
We can't really think of anything other than watching the movies. We don't remember the first few times we watched the movies since we always remember watching them.

30: Why you love Star Wars

It is hard explain. It is like asking why you like breathing. The movies are the most original and most interesting fictional  universe ever created. The original trilogy is beyond perfect!

That is it for the challenge.

Star Wars 30 Question Meme: Day Four

16: Photo of you Star Wars-related things
We have a lot of Star Wars Legos we use in our movies and just about every Star Wars video games made in the last 15 years so we can't post them all but here are a few. We plan on making some Star Wars video game posts soon.

17: Favorite TPM moment
This has to be the best part of the movie hands down. This is the first real lightsaber fight of the prequels and the first time you see Darth Maul's duel lightsaber.

18: Favorite AotC moment

This is not the part of the movie you would expect us choose but we quoted this line long after watching the movie. This is one of the most hilarious scenes in all of the prequels. "You don;t want to sell me death sticks". "You want to home and re-think your life.".

19: Favorite RotS moment
We have to go with the duel at the end and the attack on the Jedi temple.

20: Favorite ANH moment
The Trench Run and the Cantina are great and "These aren't the droids your looking for". We could go on forever. We might make a Top 10 A New Hope scenes post soon.

Check back tomorrow for day five.
