CoolCanucks Review of MIA AND THE MIGOO DVD!!

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

 

 

 

 

What’s the story?

Mia (voiced by Amanda Mis­quez) hasn’t heard from her father, Pedro (Jesse Corti), in a long time and has a vision that she should go look for him. He’s actu­ally trapped in an under­ground tun­nel at his work site, which is run by a lux­ury real-estate devel­op­ment firm headed by Mr. Jekhide (John DiMag­gio), who must take his own young son, Aldrin (Vin­cent Agnello), to a trop­i­cal island where he plans to build an exclu­sive vaca­tion club. Aid­ing Mia on her trip to the remote island are her dead mother’s good luck charms, a sor­cer­ess (Whoopi Gold­berg), and even­tu­ally by the Migoo, a shape-shifting, marshmallow-like crea­ture (Wal­lace Shawn) that can mul­ti­ply into var­i­ous ver­sions of itself and whose job it is to pro­tect the Tree of Life, a spe­cial “mother tree” that resides in the mid­dle of the pro­posed devel­op­ment. Aldrin and Mia band together to both attempt to find Pedro and to try to stop Jekhide from destroy­ing the tree.

 

 

 

 

 

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

 

From the dis­trib­u­tors of the Acad­emy Award®-nominated The Secret of Kells, comes MIA AND THE MIGOO, the gor­geous sec­ond fea­ture from renowned French ani­ma­tor Jacques-Rémy Gir­erd.  A fable-like jour­ney of a young girl who must over­come her fears on a quest to find her father and save the world from destruc­tion, MIA AND THE MIGOO was cre­ated from an astound­ing 500,000 hand-painted frames of ani­ma­tion.  A stun­ning work of art, breath­tak­ing to behold, with back­grounds that invoke Van Gogh, Monet, and Cezanne, it also fea­tures the voices of Whoopi Gold­berg, Matthew Modine, James Woods and Wal­lace Shawn.

 

Fol­low­ing a pre­mo­ni­tion, Mia sets out on a cross con­ti­nen­tal jour­ney, though moun­tains and jun­gles in search of her father, who has been trapped in a land­slide at a con­struc­tion site on a remote trop­i­cal lake.  In the mid­dle of the lake stands the ancient Tree of Life, watched over by inno­cent, bum­bling for­est spir­its called the Migoo, who grow and change shape as they please, mor­ph­ing from small child­like beings to petu­lant giants.  The Migoo have been dis­rupt­ing the con­struc­tion to pro­tect this sacred site – and now together with Mia they join in a fight to find Mia’s father and save the Tree, with the future of life on Earth hang­ing in the balance.

Mia and the Migoo isn’t just beau­ti­ful to look at it, its an enter­tain­ing and thought­ful story. I hes­i­tate in using the word, as peo­ple have the impres­sion a movie can’t say any­thing of sub­stance with­out being preachy, but it also con­tains some nice mes­sages about respect: self-respect, respect for oth­ers, and respect for the world around you. While some might bri­dle at the rather sub­ver­sive idea that the envi­ron­ment and car­ing for those around you is more impor­tant than turn­ing a profit, con­sid­er­ing how so much pop­u­lar enter­tain­ment aimed at chil­dren these days cel­e­brates con­sumerism it makes for a refresh­ing change. The only prob­lem is the mes­sage is so sub­tle it will prob­a­bly be lost on most of its audi­ence. While Gir­erd and com­pany are to be com­mended for cre­at­ing some­thing which doesn’t assume its audi­ence is stu­pid, when peo­ple are used to being blud­geoned over the head they might not respond to a gen­tle tap on the shoulder.

 

 

 

 

The story is a com­bi­na­tion of a clas­sic road trip and adven­ture as young Mia leaves her vil­lage to look for her father, Pedro. He has taken a job far from home on a con­struc­tion site build­ing a resort in a remote wilder­ness area. Strange acci­dents have been hap­pen­ing on the site, cranes have fallen over and there have been land slides. When Pedro hears an odd noise in one of the tun­nels they are build­ing on the site he goes to inves­ti­gate and is trapped by a cave in. Hun­dreds of miles away Mia wakes up from a dream of her father in trou­ble. With her mother already dead, she’s not pre­pared to lose her father and after vis­it­ing her mother’s grave heads out to find him.

Aldrin lives in a world so com­pletely dif­fer­ent from Mia it might as well be on another planet. His mother and father are divorced and his father, Jekhide, the busi­ness­man behind the devel­op­ment project Pedro was work­ing at, is a worka­holic who ignores him. His mother is a sci­en­tist study­ing the effects of global warm­ing on the Antarc­tic ice-cap, so in some ways Aldrin spends the film in much the same way as Mia, look­ing for his father. For even though he ends up trav­el­ling with Jekhide to the con­struc­tion site to inves­ti­gate the mys­te­ri­ous acci­dents, they might as well be hun­dreds of miles apart even when they’re in the same room. In so many ways Aldrin is the par­ent in their rela­tion­ship as he’s always hav­ing to take his father to task for his self-centred and self­ish behaviour.

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Baby Butz Cream Review & Giveaway!!

Sunday, August 26th, 2012

 

 

 

Baby Butz 100% nat­ural, 100% guaranteed.

Why force your child to suf­fer even worse dia­per rash because of creams that con­tain toxic chem­i­cals and alcohol?

 

Baby Butz is the ONLY dia­per cream in Canada stamped with the Health Canada Nat­ural Health Prod­uct number.

 

Baby Butz cream is made with their PFP (Pro­pri­etary  For­mu­la­tion Process) and the fol­low­ing nat­ural ingredients:

♥Zinc Oxide ♥Lano­lin ♥Petro­la­tum (Petro­leum jelly) ♥Starch

Baby Butz does not include per­fume, alco­hol or chem­i­cals which rocks!!

 

 

 

 

 

Tons of par­ents go through that annoy­ing phase of baby’s skin con­di­tions and it can be awful frus­trat­ing find­ing just the right prod­uct to cure these conditions.

Dia­per rashes tend to be the most both­er­some issues for babies because they occur in extremely sen­si­tive areas and are often very painful if left untreated. Just by the looks of these unfor­tu­nate dia­per rashes leaves a par­ent crushed at the thought of what their poor lit­tle one must be feel­ing, and know­ing that they are in pain hurts a par­ent so badly.

 

 

 

 

 

I just recently came across a Canadian-based com­pany that car­ries a fan­tas­tic dia­per rash cream that left me want­ing to know more. Baby Butz is a mom-founded com­pany and was cre­ated because a car­ing mom saw a need for a dia­per rash cream that was clear of per­fumes, chem­i­cals and toxins!

See more about this awe­some prod­uct here on this video!

 

 

 

 

Demitri was truly blessed with hav­ing such a phe­nom­e­nal mommy who loves him uncon­di­tion­ally! This story tugs at my heart, that’s for sure!!

Baby Butz Cream is 100% nat­ural and 100% guar­an­teed. The ingre­di­ent list is: Zinc Oxide, Lano­lin, Petro­la­tum, Starch. The tex­ture of this cream is very thick and dense which means you need very lit­tle. After all, a lit­tle goes a long way! :)

 

 

 

 

Baby Butz Cream worked like a charm on baby Riley and am so glad that we found this fan­tas­tic product!!!!!

 

 

 

 

Baby Butz Cream scores a huge thumbs up from Cool­Canucks, and I hon­estly rec­om­mend this prod­uct to every­one out there!!

 

♥→I received prod­uct for review. The opin­ions within this post are of my own and I was not influ­enced in any way. Please do your own research before pur­chas­ing prod­ucts. Your opin­ions and results may dif­fer than mine.←♥

CoolCanucks Review of Perky™ PLUS Stain Remover!

Saturday, August 25th, 2012

 

Being a huge ani­mal lover, I have a cou­ple of dogs. They WERE both house­bro­ken until my poor lit­tle Pomeran­ian turned 14 and is pretty much incon­ti­nent now. He can­not help it if he makes mis­takes by doing his duty in the house, as he just can­not seem to hold it any­more and it breaks my heart.

We have hard­wood on the main floor, but the upstairs as well as the base­ment is filled with car­pet­ing. I also have an area rug over the hard­wood in our liv­in­groom, and my lit­tle baby is known to have many acci­dents on that rug. He can­not get upstairs or down any­more, but my area rug sure takes a beat­ing! I want to go out and pur­chase a new one mind you, but there is no sense right now as it will only get soiled any­way … so when my dear lit­tle Pom “Beau” is called away to Rain­bow Bridge, (hop­ing not for a very long time) only then will I pur­chase a new rug.

 

I have tried lit­er­ally 10 or more prod­ucts that claim to get the tough stains out fast only to be dis­ap­pointed by the pretty much false adver­tis­ing. I would pur­chase bot­tle after bot­tle just pray­ing that that par­tic­u­lar one would work, only to find the stains still there, as usual.

I recently was intro­duced to Perky™ PLUS Stain Remover by Groom Indus­tries, (who has been man­u­fac­tur­ing pro­fes­sional clean­ing sup­plies for over 35 years and have just recently devel­oped these fan­tas­tic clean­ing prod­ucts and stain removers for the gen­eral pub­lic) and I was blown away by the results! The end results were fantastic!

I sim­ply applied the Perky™ PLUS Stain Remover onto a cou­ple of stains and then used the lit­tle handy brush that was included with the review prod­uct. Instead of just sit­ting on the sur­face, the Perky™ PLUS Stain Remover sank right in and actu­ally took care of the pesky lin­ger­ing stains that were on there pre­vi­ously!! I was hon­estly amazed on how great this worked! I truly rec­om­mend that every­one have a bot­tle on hand, espe­cially those with pets and/or childen! You won’t regret it, that’s for sure!

Perky™ PLUS Stain Remover scores a huge thumbs up from CoolCanucks!!

I received one or more of the prod­ucts men­tioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regard­less, I only rec­om­mend prod­ucts or ser­vices I use per­son­ally and believe will be good for my readers.

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Lilikin&Friends Review & Giveaway!!

Saturday, August 25th, 2012

 

 

 

 

Intro­duc­ing Lilikin&Friends, the hottest new plush toys avail­able on the mar­ket!

Most peo­ple absolutely adore stuffed toys, both young or old! We all have many emo­tions that we share … smil­ing when we are happy, frown­ing when we are sad, the look of won­der when we are con­fused. But no mat­ter what, Lilikin&Friends stand by your side no mat­ter what!

“Lilikin&Friends are top qual­ity plush toys made with cot­ton fab­rics that are cer­ti­fied organic by the Global Organic Tex­tile Stan­dard (GOTS). They’re stuffed with eco-conscious recy­cled polypropy­lene fibres, and have been tested and approved as safe for even the very youngest of our friends.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lilikin & Friends were born in the sum­mer of 2009. Cre­ated by Kim­ber­ley Cle­land a sea­soned toy designer with 10 years of indus­try expe­ri­ence with children’s toys. The com­pany is based in Mon­treal and is 100% Cana­dian which rocks!!

Lilikin is the melan­choly grey kit­ten. Mol­ly­cod­dle is the ultra-dainty albino bunny, and  Eleven is the small-for-his-age mon­key! They are so soft, adorable, cer­ti­fied organic, and each has their own lit­tle personality!!

 

 

 

 

We had the oppor­tu­nity of review­ing the Mol­ly­cod­dle: The Ultra Dainty Albino Bunny and baby Riley went crazy over her! Mol­ly­cod­dle has fit in per­fectly since Riley loves bun­nies, and she shares her love of baked goods and cake pops with Mol­ly­cod­dle!! She is so beau­ti­ful because she’s more girly and wears a pretty pink bal­le­rina skirt!

 

 

 

 

 

Mol­ly­cod­dle is 18″ from head to toe and weighs approx­i­mately 1 lb.  All brand­ing mate­r­ial is printed on recy­cled post-consumer waste paper with vegetable-based inks. Stuffed with poly­ester fiber and recy­cled poly­eth­yl­ene pel­lets for a heavy, droopy body that can be gen­tly posed!

 

 

 

 

Lilikin&Friends gets a huge thumbs up from Cool­Canucks, and I rec­om­mend that every­one own one, or all three!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Tatcha Japanese Skin Care & Beauty Products Review & Giveaway!!

Friday, August 24th, 2012

 

 

 

Japan­ese geisha are well known world­wide for their mys­tery and beauty. When Vic­to­ria Tsai, founder of Tatcha, learned of a book pub­lished in Japan in 1813 that described 156 skin care ingre­di­ents and detailed instruc­tions about how to use them, she was inspired to cre­ate a 4-step skin care reg­i­men, or “rit­ual,” based on that of the geisha.

Peo­ple by the mil­lions have been singing the praises of Tatcha blot­ting papers since they first swiped one across their oily fore­heads in 2009! Tatcha founder Vic­to­ria Tsai def­i­nitely proves that her phe­nom­e­nal com­pany is no one-hit won­der with the release of a full skin care line based on authen­tic Japan­ese beauty rituals!!

“To be clear, this is no Mem­oirs of a Geisha fan­tasy. Years of hard work, befriend­ing Kyoto locals, and much sleuthing led Tsai to a 200-year-old text and a rare oppor­tu­nity to meet with a real geisha girl (with skin so flaw­less, it brought the brand founder to tears).

Tsai enlisted schol­ars to trans­late the text and met with sci­en­tists who helped her for­mu­late a base recipe of green tea, Oki­nawa red algae, and rice bran. The awe­some result was a skin care col­lec­tion span­ning camel­lia cleans­ing oil, exfo­li­at­ing enzyme pow­ders, licorice-rich bright­en­ing serum, and a silky moisturizer!

 

 

 

 

When one looks at a Japan­ese ladies face, they see noth­ing but sheer beauty. You see per­fectly gor­geous milky white flaw­less skin, and never notice a flaw in my per­sonal expe­ri­ence. I am so jeal­ous of their nat­ural beauty, and often won­dered why their skin was always per­fect. After being able to review the Tatcha Japan­ese Skin Care prod­ucts, I see why now!! Have you ever seen a geisha that had a blem­ish or pim­ple? I haven’t!

The newly launched skin­care line cen­ters around 4 key prod­ucts; a 1-step Camel­lia Cleans­ing Oil, Rice Enzyme Pow­der, Bright­en­ing Serum and the Mois­ture Rich Silk Cream. Rather than load you down with unnec­es­sary prod­ucts, these are essen­tials per­fect for every day use. The Camel­lia cleans­ing oil is light­weight, yet loaded with camel­lia and rice bran – ingre­di­ents filled with skin heal­ing anti-oxidants.

 

 

 

 

 

For over 300 years, Japan’s geisha have been known for their beau­ti­ful, porce­lain skin. TATCHA dis­cov­ered their daily regimes in a 200-year-old man­u­script. Tatcha has worked with teams of sci­en­tists, schol­ars and geisha them­selves to deci­pher the rit­u­als and ingre­di­ents from this text.

Their all-natural for­mu­las car­ries the secrets of the geisha involv­ing the most pre­cious green teas, Oki­nawa red algae, rice bran and other time-tested ingredients.

 

 

 

 

 

My own per­sonal main con­cern is red­ness on my cheeks and improv­ing the over­all tex­ture of my skin with­out irri­tat­ing it fur­ther as my skin is super sen­si­tive. I think Tatcha is an excel­lent line (if not, the best one that I’ve tried) for these kinds of issues. The biggest improve­ment that I’ve seen thus far after a week’s usage is the reduc­tion of red­ness and a clar­ity that hasn’t been there in years. It’s not instan­ta­neous mind you and does not acheive your best look overnight in just one dose, but with con­tin­u­ous usage it does work, I promise you that. After just over one week some lin­ger­ing spots have healed and light­ened! Tatcha Japan­ese Skin Care & Beauty Prod­ucts rock, believe me!!

 

 

 

I give Tatcha Japan­ese Skin Care & Beauty Prod­ucts a huge thumbs up, and rec­om­mend that every­one try these amaz­ing products!

CoolCanucks Review of ToiletTree Facial, Nail and Cuticle Scissors — Group of 4

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

 

I have reviewed an awe­some prod­uct from Toi­let­Tree Prod­ucts in the past called the Fog­less Shower Mir­ror and it was phe­nom­e­nal! The sec­ond time around I had the oppor­tu­nity of review­ing the Toi­let­Tree Prod­ucts Toi­letry Bag with Travel Acces­sories and as usual, Toi­let­Tree Prod­ucts did not dis­ap­point. This time around I was ecsta­tic to review the phe­nom­e­nal Facial, Nail and Cuti­cle Scis­sors — Group of 4 with a Life­time Replace­ment Guar­an­tee! If you are any­thing like me, you love achiev­ing that salon qual­ity look with­out the high prices of vis­it­ing an actual salon!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ SuperTooth’s newest introduction to its Bluetooth Speakerphone line – the Crystal Review & Giveaway!!

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

 

 

 

If you need to make a hands-free call while dri­ving or oth­er­wise, you need a solid Blue­tooth head­set as it is now the law to not be using your cell­phone up to your ear man­u­ally or face a hefty fine! Most phones sold these days have the awe­some speak­er­phone mode. This set­ting is usu­ally good enough for an impromptu hands-free call in a small and quiet office or space. How­ever, when you get on the road in a loud vehi­cle, the phone’s flaws are imme­di­ately made appar­ent. For exam­ple, the built-in micro­phone can be less than ideal for can­cel­ing the lev­els of road and wind noise present in a car at high­way speed, which leads to poor qual­ity on the receiv­ing end of your calls. I’m sure that you hate hav­ing to repeat your­self over and over to callers as much as I do, so SuperTooth’s bril­liant newest gad­get called the Crys­tal improves call qual­ity bigtime!!

 

 

 

 

 

The world’s best-selling intel­li­gent head­set just got bet­ter. The Super­Tooth Crys­tal is a Blue­tooth car speak­er­phone. This baby links wire­lessly by Blue­tooth with your phone and allows you to have hands-free calls while dri­ving. The Super­Tooth promises high qual­ity in-car Blue­tooth con­nected speak­er­phone action which is def­i­nitely does! Sim­ply clip in on your visor and it works excel­lent! It is com­pat­i­ble with basi­cally all cel­lu­lar phones such as the smart­phone, android, and even the iPhones! The metal clip con­nects to the actual device via the Crystal’s built-in mag­net, and you’ll be good to go if you want to keep the device up above you on your sun visor or if you want to pop the device off for a moment’s inspec­tion. This device is 130 x 50 x 14 mm, small enough to fit in your hand or pocket quite eas­ily, and has a bat­tery capac­ity that will have you talk­ing for 20 hours or work­ing with 40 days of standby.

The Super­Tooth Crys­tal is an awe­some Blue­tooth car speak­er­phone as it can play back music from Blue­tooth A2DP enabled phones, announce GPS instruc­tions as well as func­tion as a hands free sys­tem. This last fea­ture is great for those with strin­gent hands free dri­ving laws that are strictly enforced nowadays!!

I received a black one to review and I love it so much!!
