Eddie Murphy Set To Voice Hong Kong Phooey
Having been in big roles in animation films like Shrek and Mulan, Eddie Murphy is no stranger to voice acting. Now he will be taking his talents to the upcoming live-action/CGI animation film Hong Kong Phooey, voicing the title role.
Hong Kong Phooey was a Hanna-Barbara cartoon series from the 1970’s about a superhero pooch proficient in Chinese martial arts. Hong Kong Phooey was voiced by the late Scatman Crothers.
I have no issue with Murphy voicing the lead character. It’s a fine casting and I think he’ll do a good job. But for the love of cartoons, can we please, please, PLEASE quit it with these crappy hybrid live-action/animation films based off 70’s and 80’s cartoons?? Scooby Doo, Alvin and the Chipmunks, The Smurfs, Yogi Bear, Garfield, Rocky and Bullwinkle, etc. My childhood begs of you!
Who knows, maybe Hong Kong Phooey will be different. But then again, Alex Zamm, who directed such straight-to-video luminaries as Inspector Gadget 2, Dr. Doolittle: Million Dollar Mutts and Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2, is set to direct this film. Ugh.
Stop trying to destroy my childhood!!!!!
Yes, it’s official folks! All Borders, Borders Express and Waldenbooks stores will be closing down. Five months after filing for bankruptcy, Borders will now begin liquidation sales with all books, DVDs and furniture discounted up to 40% starting TODAY (July 22, 2011).
Bad News: All sales are expected to end September, which means all 10,000+ employees nationwide will lose their jobs after liquidation. Plus local artists and musicians lose a venue that helped promote plenty of special events such as book and CD signings.
Good News: For many parents, it may be the perfect time to go back-to-school shopping for your kids. Or if you’ve been waiting to buy that DVD/manga/comic/art/design/computer/drama book, now is the time to splurge with all your available discounts.
Truth be told, if you’re a loyal customer, it’s always hard to say goodbye to a place you love. Do any of you feel the same way?
You got Amazon’d. Karma is a bitch.
