Turtle Talk Thursday: Splinter and Shredder's Story


The original TMNT movie holds up so well. It is dark when it needs to be and fun when it needs to be. Splinter is one of the best actors in the whole movie, the weight with which he delivers his and Shredder's origin is Oscar worthy in my eyes.

B&R: BATMAN RETURNS: Bat-Signal And Suit Up


Why does Bruce Wayne have giant mirror that reflects the bat-signal into his house when it lights up the sky? I guess he's a big Batman fan.

B&R: Batman Forever McDonalds Commercial 2


I wish I had bought a thousand of these cups back in the day. I still have a Two-face cup that holds loose change proudly on my shelf.

Turtle Talk Thursday: Leo Vs Raph TMNT (2007)


This is the best sequence from the 2007 movie in my eyes. The drama works and the action is superb. Also love all the brotherly emotion being thrown around.

B&R: Batman Begins (2005) "Now we are two."


This is one of my favorite moments in Batman Begins. Batman in his infancy trying to make an ally out of Jim Gordon. Gordon asks "You're just one man" Wayne responds "Now we are two." It has such a Godfather-esque feeling to it that is instantly iconic to me.

Fake Fighting Frenzy: Vundablog Goes to WRESTLEMANIA!!!


"THE BOYHOOD DREAM HAS COME TRUE..." -Vince McMahon

That's right, fake fighting fanatics. For the first time in the nearly twenty years I've been a wrestling fan, I FINALLY got to experience WRESTLEMANIA live and in person! This is quite literally an actual line item on my Bucket List. I've dreamed of this chance for years. WrestleMania came to my hometown (and home of Vundablog headquarters) of Miami, FL in 2012 but it had been quite some time since I had kept up with the current state of WWE and I didn't think I would enjoy it enough to use a birthday and/or Christmas present on it.

Boy was I wrong.

Us Vundabloggers watched WrestleMania XXVIII on pay-per-view and the whole time I couldn't help thinking how much I wish I had asked for that ticket for Christmas or my birthday. The HHH/Undertaker Hell In a Cell match was EPIC. C.M. Punk v. Chris Jericho was sick. Even The Rock v. John Cena was fun for what it was, especially since it was in The Rock's hometown. I thought I had missed my chance. Then I moved to the Bay Area last August. Come to find out that WrestleMania XXXI would be at Levi's Stadium--home of the San Francisco 49ers. I wouldn't let the same thing happen again. I asked for a ticket for Christmas.

Since I got that ticket, the build to this WrestleMania has been pretty head-scratching. It really started with Roman Reigns winning the Royal Rumble. We all thought he wasn't ready, and there's certainly truth to that. Then there was the nonsensical feud between Randy Orton and Seth Rollins which featured Randy Orton rejoining The Authority for no apparent reason, only to turn on Rollins. Then there was the still more ridiculous Intercontinental Championship feud that centered around people trying to steal the belt from one another. Nothing really made sense and none of it seemed to matter. I became convinced that my childhood dream was becoming a nightmare and that I was doomed to experience one of the worst WrestleManias ever.

Boy was I wrong.

ASS KICKING KICKSTARTERS: MENTHU

Been a while since I publicly plugged a kickstarter on the Vundablog. So here's a return to a recurring segment I call Ass Kicking Kickstarters.


This Menthu comic looks very promising. The amount of detail and time put into the Kickstarter page give me a lot of hope for this comic series. Send them as much support as you can share their Kickstarter they have less than a week to go and a lot of catching up to do. The talent involved looks top notch and it's cool to see a cool new hero of color. Help Robert Roach achieve his dream. Here's a graphic I made to help promote the campaign, so you can share it and post it on your social media outlet of choice.





B&R: Green Lantern finds out Batman has no powers


I love Batman smiling at Green Lantern with such pride that he's just a guy in a bat costume. All that and Batman doesn't need powers to be the most valuable member of Justice League.
