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.








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 Review of the Dyson DC35 Digital Slim Vacuum for Dad ~ Just in time for Father’s Day!!

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012




Ok read­ers. You all know that I am absolutely infat­u­ated with Dyson Canada, and their phe­nom­e­nal vac­u­ums. I can­not tell you enough that Dyson sells the very best vac­u­ums in the world, period.

The suc­tion on these Dyson’s are totally amaz­ing and they pick up basi­cally any­thing on any floor whether it is ceramic, vinyl, car­pet or hard­wood! I have yet to have some­one dis­agree with me about my opin­ion of Dyson Canada. They are, in my own per­sonal opin­ion, the best vac­u­ums that have ever been invented!!







Dyson is the most rec­og­nized and most pop­u­lar brand of vac­u­ums across the world. When one men­tions vac­uum clean­ers, Dyson imme­di­ately comes to mind.

It’s defi­nitely not a secret that Dyson pro­duces and sells stand-out vac­uum clean­ers both upright and can­is­ter style. Dyson aims to con­tinue their suc­cess­ful line of vac­u­ums, and just recently I was able to review their awe­some Dyson DC35 Dig­i­tal Slim Vacuum!

Father’s Day (June 17, 2012) is fast approach­ing and the search for the per­fect gift is on. By pur­chas­ing the new Dyson DC35 Dig­i­tal Slim Vac­uum for Dad, you will hon­estly make his life a whole lot simpler!!







The DC35 (also known as the Dig­i­tal Slim) is Dyson’s lat­est hand­held vac­uum cleaner for multi-floor with a detach­able long-reach wand and a motor­ized cleaner head.

The Dyson DC35 is also bag-less. All dust and dirt can be seen inside a trans­par­ent can­is­ter and with a press of a but­ton, you can eas­ily open the can­is­ter to dump all of that crap right into the garbage.

The power-efficient Dyson dig­i­tal motor makes this cord­less vac­uum amaz­ingly powerful!!







The Dyson DC35 Dig­i­tal Slim Vac­uum is a great pet hair picker upper, extremely con­ve­nient to store, is bag-less, cord­less, has enough suc­tion that a single-pass does the job, it has a no slip grip, and it is very easy to charge.

As you know, it’s always dif­fi­cult find­ing dad some­thing for Father’s Day that he does not already have. But now that the Dyson DC35 Dig­i­tal Slim Vac­uum for Dad has arrived, it’s here just in time for Father’s Day! This is the best Father’s Day gift by far!






“Dyson DC35 Multi floor is a Dyson Dig­i­tal Slim™ cord­less vac­uum cleaner for mul­ti­ple floor types– car­pet, ceramic, vinyl and wood.
It fea­tures a detach­able long-reach wand and a motor­ized cleaner head. Pow­ered by the Dyson dig­i­tal motor, it is the most pow­er­ful light­weight cord­less vac­uum.“




Father’s love sim­ple and hate hav­ing to med­dle with every­thing. The sim­pler, the bet­ter! This would be the per­fect gift for dad this Father’s Day 2012!!




“Father’s Day.  Make dad’s life eas­ier (and cleaner) with the ulti­mate guy gift — Dyson DC35 Dig­i­tal Slim cord­less Vac­uum cleaner.
Unlike tra­di­tional cord­less vac­u­ums that have a poor bat­tery life, no pick up and are dif­fi­cult to use — the Dyson DC35 Dig­i­tal Slim has been engi­neered for max­i­mum suc­tion. In fact, it’s the most pow­er­ful cord­less handheld.

Its motor­ized head uses car­bon fil­a­ments to remove fine dust from hard sur­faces any nylon brushes to remove dirt from car­pets. The detach­able long reach wand reaches up top, into awk­ward gaps and down below.”







The Dyson DC35 Dig­i­tal Slim:

•Boasts a light­weight ver­sa­tile design that quickly con­verts to a hand­held (so it’s 2-in-1) to eas­ily clean the car, boat, and any­where in between

•Energy Star bat­tery charger with a fade-free lithium-ion bat­tery, which charges 3 times faster

•Click-in recharg­ing sta­tion that hangs ver­ti­cally to pre­vent clut­ter and save space in the man cave




As always, the Dyson DC35 Dig­i­tal Slim Vac­uum sucks dust and dirt like you just wouldn’t believe. I always boast about the Dyson vac­uum cleaner to my friends. They are some­what pricey, but hon­estly worth every sin­gle penny. I’m always amazed how much dust and dirt it col­lects from my car­pet, hard­wood floors, and area rugs.


I am sold on any­thing Dyson Canada car­ries, and hon­estly rec­om­mend Dyson to every­one out there. Believe me, you won’t be sorry!



The Dyson DC35 Dig­i­tal Slim Vac­uum (made just for Dad) can be found at many retail­ers at and major Cana­dian retail­ers: Future Shop, Best Buy, The Bay, Home Out­fit­ters, Sears, Cana­dian Tire, The Brick, Wal­mart, Home Depot, and inde­pen­dent retail­ers across Canada.

CoolCanucks Review of Nutra Luxe MD Nutra Face Lift Micro-current!

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012




Nutra Luxe MD is a highly trusted and rep­utable com­pany with many sat­is­fied cus­tomers all over the world. Based in Florida, USA, Nutra Luxe MD offers an exten­sive array of All Nat­ural Anti-Aging Skin Care Prod­ucts. Founded by Mr. Peter von Berg with the objec­tive of devel­op­ing sci­en­tif­i­cally advanced, clin­i­cally proven anti-aging skin ther­a­pies, Nutra Luxe MD prod­ucts are the most advanced indus­try tech­nol­ogy with extremely afford­able pric­ing! These clin­i­cally proven anti-aging skin ther­a­pies were for­mu­lated for both men and women!





It is never too early to begin tak­ing care of your skin. Pre­ven­tion is always the best way to ensure that you don’t ever have to really search for a cure for fine lines and wrin­kles in your later years. When you do find an anti aging skin prod­uct that can help your skin to pro­duce the col­la­gen it needs, pre­vent­ing the loss of elastin and hyaluronic acid, this is a great way to ensure that you hold onto a more youth­ful look­ing appear­ance, longer.

There are actu­ally numer­ous rea­sons for why it is ben­e­fi­cial to keep­ing a more youth­ful, glow­ing appear­ance. The main rea­son is that this will assist you to ensure that your own nat­ural col­la­gen pro­duc­tion is con­tin­u­ous. As we age, the skin’s abil­ity to pro­duce ker­atin, which in turn pro­duces col­la­gen begins to get a lit­tle slower. This then leads to a loss of elas­tic­ity, which can cause the dreaded sag­ging. When we use Nutra Luxe MD nat­ural anti aging skin prod­ucts, they pre­vent dam­age to the skin cells them­selves, and the loss of hyaluronic acid. Col­la­gen fibers need hyaluronic acid in order to be able to con­tinue to remain elastic.






Anti-aging skin­care prod­ucts can make your skin look smoother. One of the main rea­sons it is so impor­tant to use nat­ural skin care prod­ucts when you can is because about 60% of what you apply to your skin will be absorbed into your body and into your blood­stream. As many of you know, I am always encour­ag­ing every­one to go green and use nat­ural prod­ucts. When I say nat­ural skin care prod­ucts, I mean using prod­ucts that will not leave a foot­print on mother earth. Choose the best nat­ural skin­care prod­ucts like those from Nutra Luxe MD Nat­ural Skin Care Prod­ucts.









I was ecsta­tic to be able to review one of the hottest sell­ing phe­nom­e­nal prod­ucts that Nutra Luxe MD car­ries, called the Nutra Face Lift Micro-current! I hon­estly do not know how I got along with­out this fab­u­lous life­saver, but now this is some­thing that I can­not do with­out!! Hit­ting my 40’s was no easy task for me, and I took it very hard. It was a big blow to my sys­tem! I know that we all age in time and it’s inevitable, how­ever I was one that used to think that 30 was old!! I am now def­i­nitely notic­ing the fine lines, the crows feet, and the slight wrin­kles form­ing here and there on my face which are truly not wel­comed. This Nutra Face Lift Micro-current was a com­plete God-send, and I can totally notice the dif­fer­ence around my eyes in just one week’s use!








  • Ton­ing device pro­vides facial reju­ve­na­tion for a youth­ful look
  • Firms and tones due to smooth con­trac­tion of mus­cle fibers
  • Look radi­ant and rede­fine your youth­ful, nat­ural complexion
  • Strength­ens skin tex­ture and nat­ural elasticity
  • Accel­er­ates col­la­gen pro­duc­tion to pre­vent skin from get­ting thin­ner and


This is anti-aging treat­ment made easy, safe, and afford­able. Erase years in only 5 min­utes per day. Micro-current tech­nol­ogy is used as a treat­ment to lift, firm, tone, and tighten the skin and vis­i­bly dimin­ish fine lines and wrin­kles. This has been used for years in doc­tor offices, spas, salons, and med-spas around the world, but now you can get the same treat­ment at home at only a frac­tion of the price!!

Over time, your mus­cles respond to repeated mus­cle ges­tures and “mem­o­rize famil­iar actions. Using a tech­nol­ogy that has been avail­able for years in doc­tor offices, the Nutra Face Lift device deliv­ers a gen­tle micro cur­rent to the cells, lead­ing to the firm­ing of facial mus­cles and strength­en­ing of the skin tex­tures.  This sooth­ing, pain-less stim­u­la­tion restores the nat­ural skin bal­ance and gen­tly tones your face from the com­forts of your home.

Sim­ply apply the Nutraluxe VITAMIN C/ STEM CELL on your face (you can also use the optional enclosed con­duc­tiv­ity gel).  Turn the device ON by push­ing the but­ton in the mid­dle of the dial and choose your inten­sity with the UP/ DOWN but­ton.  Sim­ply glide your two elec­trodes as described in the user man­ual over your skin. You will love the results just as I did and still do!! I will NEVER stop using this awe­some prod­uct, and totally rec­om­mend that every­one have one, woman or man!!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ MoH fashionable USB Wristband Review & Giveaway!!

Sunday, March 4th, 2012




The MoH Band is an extremely fash­ion­able USB Wrist­band. It allows users to carry all their dig­i­tal files wher­ever they go!! The MoH Band is totally Portable, Con­ve­nient, and oh so Styl­ish! They come in a very exten­sive array of styles and colours, so match­ing your wrist­band to your out­fit is never a prob­lem when you keep a dozen on hand!!

The designed wrist­band that I received to review is called Lemon Lime Clemen­tine – and it is a pretty swirl of lime green, orange, and white! It holds 2GB of data, images, etc!  These bands are def­i­nitely made from excel­lent qual­ity rub­ber mate­ri­als that clone the trendy bracelets that teens wear today and are colour­ful and very fashionable!




Mem­ory on Hand is a self-owned, small com­pany that has launched a Kick­starter project. Kick­starter is the world’s largest fund­ing plat­form for cre­ative projects, that helps raise money for indi­vid­u­als and com­pa­nies through the sup­port of a larger com­mu­nity. See more about this won­der­ful project here!

The band cir­cum­frence is 7.5″ long and fits fan­tas­tic! Mem­ory on Hand bracelets come in 2GB and 4GB so they will hold any and all doc­u­ments that you may need right there on your person!!






“The MoH Band™ was first con­ceived as a class­room project at Bab­son Col­lege in 2010. Andrew Kitzen­berg, the founder of Mem­ory on Hand, had lost numer­ous flash dri­ves dur­ing his time at Bab­son.  Reg­u­larly using them to backup papers and projects, there was usu­ally a minor melt­down when one was lost. Real­iz­ing that many other stu­dents were hav­ing this same prob­lem, Andrew con­ceived a new USB wrist­band that would be a fit­ting prod­uct solu­tion. It was easy to keep track of and allowed him to always carry his impor­tant files on him. After play­ing around with the idea and test­ing designs Andrew saw the ben­e­fits of the MoH Band™ first­hand as he wore the ini­tial pro­to­type.  At semester’s end Andrew had com­pleted deliv­ery on his first sale and decided to pur­sue the busi­ness after grad­u­at­ing. Since grad­u­at­ing in May of 2010, Andrew part­nered up with friend and class­mate Jeff Brayer and together they have brought the MoH Band™ to stu­dents all over the country.”


I rec­om­mend that every­one have one or 12 of these, they rock!!

This cos­metic com­pany was the offi­cial sig­na­ture of Miss Uni­verse 1998, Miss Uni­verse 1999, Miss Uni­verse 2000 and Miss U.S.A 2000. Many men and ladies mod­els in each fash­ion show use Sacha Cos­met­ics.

Today, Sacha is run­ning suc­cess­fully in twenty-three dif­fer­ent coun­tries all around the world. Here below are some unique prod­ucts offered by Sacha Cosmetics:

Lighted Lip Gloss
Lip Gloss
Eye Shad­ows
Face Pow­ders



Sacha Cos­met­ics was so kind to send me 4 of their absolutely won­der­ful eye shad­ows to review, and I am beyond impressed with them! “The colour you see is the exact colour you get. You can eas­ily cre­ate the look you want from nat­ural day­time ele­gance to dra­matic evening glamor.”






These phe­nom­e­nal eye shad­ows can take your look from demure to dra­matic, and any­where in between!

Eye shadow is per­haps the most beloved cos­metic out there. Since eyes is the most impor­tant focal point of the face, the eye makeup tech­niques and choice of colours for eye shadow should suit the shape and colour of your eyes. The most impor­tant trick to keep in mind is that the light colours high­light the spots while dark colours tame them down. The first step in apply­ing the eye­shadow is to apply a neu­tral con­cealer that matches your skin tone on the eye­lid and then sweep the light­est shade over the entire area from the lash line to the brow line to cre­ate the smudge resis­tant base.

I give Sacha Cos­met­ics a HUGE thumbs up and rec­om­mend these fab­u­lous cos­met­ics to everyone!!
