New Air Bud flick Russell Madness IS Madness!

[adrotate banner=”7″]What in the name of all that is holy with talking dog movies is going on? Somehow when I wasn’t paying attention, the Air Bud franchise became a production company that’s putting out it’s own films (that appear to be outside the umbrella of Disney!), starting with a talking dog becomes a wrestling champ movie called Russell Madness!

It’s the kind of movie you got to see to still disbelieve and then watch the trailer a few more times processing everything you see. There’s a talking Jack Russell Terrier who is desperate for a family, a talking monkey wrestling coach named Hunk, evil John Ratzenberger, and kids overly emoting. Let’s not forget the gimmick wrestlers, including John Morrison!

Find out if the wrestling dog will ever get a family in February! Though whatever happens, Wishbone will always be the superior talking Jack Russell, but maybe we got a new number two!

I will give them credit for Rolling Bone. Why doesn’t that magazine exist???

Super Buddies brings the Puppy Power!

Super Buddies puppies
[adrotate banner=”1″]Air Bud was a great dog, he was Comet on Full House and he was wise enough to know there was no specific rule against dogs playing basketball. And though he is long dead, his legacy lives on in the annual Air Buddies movie. The latest entry, out today on BluRay, DVD, and VOD, is Super Buddies. And, yes, that means super hero puppies!

Watch the fur fly as a new breed of super hero is born in Disney’s fun-filled epic adventure. An ordinary day at Fernfield Farms turns extraordinary when Budderball, Mudbud, B-Dawg, Buddha and Rosebud discover mysterious rings that grant them each a unique super power. Before you can say, “Buddies, assemble,” the pups unleash their amazing abilities and race to the rescue when a shape-shifting bully from outer space threatens the planet. But can they succeed in kicking major tail without revealing their new secret identities?

Yes, super puppies vs a space pig. Also there is a mentor character, Captain Canine, who looks like Beethoven making a secret cameo.

I know what you’re thinking: “Tars, I love this Buddies crap. But I really want commemorative cards of each of these Air Buddies super heroes!” Well, you are in luck, so check out the gallery below! Also the trailer, because talking green space pigs are worth it for that alone!

SUPER BUDDIES!!!!!!! Hopefully next year will see Avengers Buddies Or Star Wars Buddies! Disney gobbling everything up makes the possibilities endless…

Santa Paws 2: The Santa Pups is the gift that keeps on giving…

[adrotate banner=”1″]If there is one film franchise that deserves to continue forever, it’s definitely not the Air Buddies. But that’s what we’re working with here, so once again let’s jump into the fire of the Air Buddies, for we’re getting a sequel to their prequel spinoff that features a whole new crew of puppies! Santa Paws 2: The Santa Pups features a foursome of puppies, and three of them are girls in a good counter to the male-centric Air Buddies (sort of, the boy puppy is still the leader for some reason.) Let’s take a look at the PR buzz:

In the film, the North Pole has a new litter of playful pups! However, when the frisky foursome — Hope, Jingle, Charity and Noble — practically destroy Santa’s Workshop with their mischievous gamboling, they realize the best way to prove that they’re responsible enough to become Santa’s Helpers is to show how well they can spread the Christmas spirit all by themselves. With help from a magic crystal, they start granting everyone’s wishes. But their good intentions backfire when one unhappy boy asks that Christmas go away forever! With his wish impetuously fulfilled, and the joyous spirit quickly disappearing from the planet, Mrs. Claus and the pups have to find a way to reverse the spell — or risk losing Christmas forever!

This cute litter consists of three female pups and one male pup: Hope is the daring tomboy who wears a backwards red cap and rarely looks before she leaps; Jingle is the diva with a bell on her collar who loves to sing, but can’t carry a tune; Charity is the girliest and most self-centered of the pups, with a mistletoe barrette, who has yet to learn the meaning of her name; and Noble is the mischievous only brother and self-appointed leader who is distinguished by a cheeky black spot around his eye.

Will these pups save Christmas and make everyone jingle their bells and shoot their eyes out? Of course! Uh..spoilers.

Starring Cheryl Ladd, Danny Woodburn, Pat Finn, Kaitlyn Maher, Josh Feldman, George Newbern, and Obba Babatunde, with voices by Marlowe Peyton as Jingle, Tatiana Gudegast as Hope, Aidan Gemme as Noble, and G. Hannelius as Charity. Directed by Robert Vince and written by Robert Vince and Anna McRoberts.

This is the 13th film in the Air Bud franchise, the prior films are: Air Bud (1997), Air Bud: Golden Receiver (1998), Air Bud: World Pup (2000), Air Bud: Seventh Inning Fetch (2002), Air Bud: Spikes Back (2003), Air Buddies (2006), Snow Buddies (2008), Space Buddies (2009), Santa Buddies (2009), The Search for Santa Paws (2010), Spooky Buddies (2011), and Treasure Buddies (2012)

Just wait until we get Marvel Buddies, where all the puppies team up in super hero costumes to fight alien puppies with the power of love. You know it will happen. You know it.
