Ducktales: Destination Adventure Coming to DVD!


Join Huey, Dewey, Louie and Webby on Their Global Adventures in Ducktales: Destination Adventure! This all new DVD features eight of their most exciting adventures this side of Mt. Neverrest. Two of the episodes are actually from the classic series! Talk about bringing back memories of my childhood.

I have to admit, as a fan of the original 1987 Ducktales TV series, I was a little apprehensive about watching this 2017 edition. I couldn’t help but think that sometimes it is hard to make a classic better or, at the very least, different enough to separate it from the classics. I actually avoided the cartoon, fearing the worst. However, when I was asked to review the new Ducktales DVD release, I nodded my head and thought…it is time.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

From the first moment I started watching Ducktales: Destination Adventure, I could tell this was going to be a little different especially when it came to the look of the beloved characters. Unlike the original characters, which were drawn with more rounded edges and brighter colors, the characters in the 2017 version have much sharper edges and have a flatter look, like old paper. It isn’t bad art, just different.

Of course a cartoon is not graded on the art alone, one has to focus on character, and in that department things have changed but also stayed the same. The boys, Huey, Dewey, and Louie are still as mischievous as ever, whether it is partaking in crazy sports with the Greek gods or jumping through wormholes. Webby on the other hand has changed quite a bit. Her character has gone from taking a back seat to full frontal assault as a deadly weapon. She can parkour, fight, and even get herself in and out of trouble better than the boys.

For example: in “The Beagle Birthday Breakout!” Webby meets a new friend and ends up crashing the Beagle’s Birthday party to their Ma. Instead of waiting for a rescue, she actually flips and dodges her way out, and later even helps rescue the boys from the Beagle invasion.

I have to admit, after watching Webby be as crazy as the boys and watching the new stories unfold, I completely forgot about comparing the original and the new. I just enjoyed the cartoon. The new Ducktales is just different enough that it feels brand new and yet it kept true to the adventurous spirit that the original Ducktales portrayed. Ducktales: Destination Adventure certainly is a great collection to watch the new escapades.

    I received the chance to review Black Panther, the moviecame with a fun party kit to throw a wonderful themed party for my family. We played a game of Movie Bingo, had yummy popcorn and snacks, and snuggled under a warm blanket while we watched the movie unfold. Well, actually, my sister Frances snuggled under the blanket while we waited for “our turn”.

    Frances enjoying the fun at the Black Panther party.

    My Brother after winning the game of Bingo

    While Frances enjoyed the comforts of the blanket, we all watched the film for the chance to shout Bingo. The search for caves, spies, hoverbikes, lip plates, beads and mores made each of us watch Black Panther closly because the winner of Bingo didn’t have to clean up after the party. My brother, Peter won..obviously..Just look at that face (above). For a copy of the Bingo cards head to “Black Panther Printable Bingo Cards.” Simply Download, print, and play.

    The party was fun to throw, but it would not have been a success without a good movie to watch. Marvel provided that good movie with Black Panther. The graphics are beautifully created and the women characters are astounding.

    The graphics are noticeable as soon as Wakanda appears on screen. The amazing tech is sure to capture the imagination and awe of all those who watch. For me, it was like the future had finally received the description, excitement, and honor that it deserves. We all hope for flying cars, hover-boards, and high tech gadgets that produce usable holograms. I mean, the ability to drive a car remotely is EPIC. Black Panther brings hope for the future and not an apocalyptic tragedy. I love that!

    Dancing around in the graphics is a huge cast of women who represent the strength and honor of Wakanda. There are so many powerful women within the movie that Black Panther is one of the first superhero movies that both boys and girls can have amazing roll models. What I like most about Black Panther is the fact that the women are not pitted against each other to fight for money or other needless objects. Instead, the women have a presence of power on screen and work together to achieve their goals, whether it be as a warrior or as a scientist. Check out the concept are for the Dora Milaje, the body guards/warriors in Wakanda. It is beautiful.

    I truly enjoyed Black Panther with all it’s graphics, story line and character development…even if I did lose at Bingo. I simply blame the loss on the fact that the movie was so good I forgot that we were playing a game. I couldn’t peel my eyes away from the screen long enough to find a place to put a token. My love for future tech and the color purple was the start of my loss. Add epic fight scenes and the occasional “Geek Speak” and my loss was guaranteed. It just goes to show that a story about a Prince learning that for the future to have hope, he must help those in need is a winning movie. I Love It.
