Secrets, adventures, friendship and trust – all these fields are involved in the series „Matt Hatter Chronicles“. It is an animated adventure – action series that is able to transfer you to another dimension. Is it hard to imagine? Let‘s find out more about this mystical and unique series. It has been produced by Nigel Stone, recorded at Pinewood Studios in the United Kingdom. There two seasons and they have 13 episodes each. It has been released in 2011 but the third season is coming up in later 2014 in India. These series have been translated in many languages which means, it has spread all over the world. Matt’s adventures series are mainly designed to thrill boys and girls who are hungry of adventures. It also appeals to the hero in us all.
The series are about Matt Hatter and his adventures. He is the main character and also a super hero of the series. Matt is a 13 year old boy whose life has changed immediately and forever. The turning point occurs when a boy discovers that his family members are guardians of a secret dimension called the Multiverse. To find out more about this secret and reveal the truth, he decides to move to the Coronet theatre in London from New York. The Chronicle is a secret book that used to belong to Matt’s grandpa. Now this book can be a great tool for Matt to become the super hero. Matt is a brave, confident and quite handsome schoolboy. He has brown hair and big blue eyes and he always are sure that he can take out whatever tenoroc throws at him. Matt has one distinguishing feature – a different color glasses (one side is red but another side is blue) that he wears quite often. Matt lives in London together with his mum, dad and mini trandoshan devil, Marlin. He is good friends with his team members Roxie and Gomez. Roxie is a pink hair owner (that might be her distinguishing feature) that is also skilled fighter as well as Matthew. She often distracts the villains with her amazing skills and with her tracking staff. Gomez’s distinguishing feature is a green ligament next to his dark blue hair. He is the keeper – he always takes this position while other two acts. Together they are a strong and unbeatable power that seeks to book the villains tenoroc releases.
The most interesting and catchy point of the series is that another dimension is the gateway to which is accessed through one of the cinema screen. There are some villains that are living on the other side of the screen. Of course those enemies are not happy with their intervention in their world. Now Matt Hatter has an aim – to battle and capture all the super villains. So, it is important not only because they want to defeat the evil and protect the Multiverse but also Matthew has to save his grandpa.
Probably every child at least once a life has had a thought that his family is weird. No one would be surprised that horrid Henry thinks so quite often. Let’s find out what has happened this time that Henry calls them weird. ‘Family fresh air day’ is the worst what can happen on Saturday to Henry. He would better lie in the bed all day long. Unfortunately, such lazy behavior is unacceptable to his family. So, they have decided to have a family day out. Be sure, in this series the famous words “don’t be horrid, Henry” will be said not once.
The series starts on Saturday at 10 o’clock. Henry is hungry so ready for his breakfast but his dad corrects him – he can get only lunch because it is already 10 a.m. Of course, his brother Peter is awaked and full of energy already. It is a ‘family fresh air day’ outside but Henry does not want to go. Peter behaves oppositely; he is very excited about such a wonderful day, he helps preparing for a day. Picnic is the best part of the day outside, so Peter picks healthy food like lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes. But once Peter and dad go to the next room, Henry picks food for a real picnic. Henry would not be Henry if he does not pick a chocolate, candies and other junk and unhealthy food.
Another problem reveals when Henry has to walk instead of going with a car. But it is a ‘family fresh air day’, so the point is to stay in the fresh air as long as possible. Henry is annoyed by Peter and dad, because they are looking for a perfect place to stay and Henry has to move together with a heavy picnic bag. Henry turns to a monster and starts eating his junk food until a lovely dog with a lovely girl appear. That red hair girl looks lovely and angelic but actually she is not. Finola behaves nicely only when Peter is next to her. When he is not she farts, talks nasty and even blame Henry about that smelly fart.
But, wait a minute… Where is the mom? She is not in the park but she is at the hairdressers. Henry is outraged that the hair cutting is more important than family fresh air day. Henry imagines that if moms come with them he would not have to leave home without breakfast and he would not have to carry everything. So, Henry finds a way how to get out of this awful ‘not all family fresh air day’. He comes back home, praises the mother for beautiful hair and declares that a family day out is not the best day without his mom together. Mom is surprised and pleased: ‘sometimes, just sometimes that boy says the nicest things’. That is how he comes back home to do whatever he wants, probably to continue his lazy day in the bed.
Ninja turtles are well known from the TV screens widely. There is an animated series about them and live – action movies as well. There were displayed many different versions of the turtles since its inception. But turtles in the live – action movie ‚Teenage mutant ninja turtles’are different from ‘Ninja turtles’ series. Also it shows how the turtles have changed over the years. Now they are grown up and they have new adventures, new look and new attitude as well. The movie is both science and fiction American type comedy based on the franchise named the same. The new version of turtles adventures are rated as one of the best 2014 animated movies. Basically, the movie creates a feeling it plays tribute to the old show in many ways, while also sometimes going a bit too far.
It tells the story of how the turtles come to meet ‘April’ and ‘Casey’, how they came into existence and their first battle with ‘Shredder’ and his Foot Clan. The most surprising part of this film is that it combines two different elements: the original comic book and the popular cartoon too.
Turtles, of course, are the main characters in the movie. They are four: Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo and Donatello. Leonardo, also named Leo loves ninjutsu. He is very strong turtle maybe because his name means strong as lion. Leonardo wears a blue mask, meanwhile Raphael wears a red one. Raph is a bit hothead because he is always the first to a fight. He looks to be tough turtle but he also has a softer side as well. Especially whenhe is with pet turtle Spike. Michelangelo is the most comical turtle. He has an orange mask and he just love pizza. Michey is an easy – going turtle that is why it is a pleasure to watch him. Donatello is the most clever and genius turtle with a purple mask. Dony is always full of genius ideas and thoughts. He prefers using a knowledge rather than fighting. Turtles are so different from each other, so every teenager will find a turtle similar to him.Despite of the fact that the turtles are very strong, smart and experienced, the turtles are much more like kids. They have to learn a lot about the life and it seems that they are looking up to a mentor and role model in their Master, Splinter.
The Turtles have always had underlying themes of family and brotherhood so the movie ‘Teenage mutant ninja turtles’ is not an exception. That is why the movie educates a good children’s attitude. It possess excellent martial arts skills, shows a fight only in self – defense and to help those who cannot fight for themselves. Having a hero is essential for kids and teenagers. It does not matter is it a real hero or animated or even imagined. If having a hero is important why not to have four lovely but strong turtle heros?
Having a hobby is very important for everybody. It helps to concentrate the energy to the good direction especially it is essential for adult. They usually have too much energy which they might to use not properly. ‘Press gang’ series is a good example what positive sides of the life can be revealed by having a favorite activity. It is a British television comedy about adults who are making their dream to come true. Children love writing so they create a group which is seeking the same aim – to make a good and interesting adults newspaper. There are no doubts that it is going to be a line of romantic. It is more than normal –high school age children are starting to run in more or less serious relationships. The action of this series takes place in London, Uxbridge where it is quite easy to feel a British soul.
The series are based on the activities of a children’s newspaper named the ‘Junior Gazette’, which apparently means a junior newspaper. To sum up there is a story about adventures, relationships and failures of a group of teenagers who are setting up and running an adult’s newspaper. Everything starts not with a dream to have a newspaper but when a famous journalist Matt Kerr arrives to work in a local London newspaper. And also he decides to set up a junior version of the newspaper.
One of the most interesting parts of the show is that all the characters are very different from each other. Spike Thompson is an American, who has become a member of this group not because he was interested in writing so far. He was forced to do so not to be expelled from school. And here Spike was soon attracted by an editor Lynda Day. She looks to be very tough, strong and opinionated but she can easily express her feelings. They become a couple and their relations runs throughout the series. Kenny Phillips is sweet and clever girl,
Colin Mathews is responsible for paper finances and advertisement. Julie Craig is the head of the graphics, intelligent but often stressing Sarah Jackson is a leader of the group and horoscopes writer Frazer Davis. These characters together create a great series which involve the audience and makes them feel a part of this show.
The most important is growing up does not matter what you are doing. You cannot stay at the same point if so, it will not last long. And here the ‚Press gang‘ characters show a good example again. Teenagers are not staying at the same level – the Junior Gazette cuts its ties with school soon and become a fully commercial enterprise in the later seasons. The question is ‚what is next‘? Are adults going to stay together and developing its business? Is it possible to remain friends for so long? All the answers
„I have nothing to wear“- these words are mostly possible to be said by women. But this time Henry said so. The problem is not that he has not actually having what to wear. He has a lot clothes but he does not like it anymore. What an uppity boy! He takes all the clothes out of the wardrobe. Moreover, he insists his mom to come over and solve the problem. Luckily, this time she is not going to descend.
Henry does not like his clothes anymore and he is not going to wear it but once his lovely brother Peter asks to have one t-shirt with a hippopotamus logo- he disagrees. But when his friend Ralf is interested in two t-shirts- he can have its only for one and a half pound. That is how the idea to have a fashion show has born. When Margaret notices that boys are doing something suspicious, she come over to find out what is going on. What a clever and smart Margaret, she has the same idea as boys have. It looks like she is interested in some clothes as well. She even volunteers to organize an event in her home. It sounds quite good but when boys and Margaret have something in common, this means that it is better not to wait for anything good…
Margaret is quick, so soon she is ready to have this party. Publicity is coming over; waiters are ready to serve drinks and snacks. It looks that everything is going well. So, let’s get the show on the road! The beginning of the show was quite poor- one Henry’s t-shirt was sold only for ten pens. But after that things get better quickly. They sell one cloth after another. But finally it is the time for the most amazing t-shirts. It is the same t-shirt that Peter was interested in- pink t-shirt with a hippopotamus logo. It is surprising but these t-shirts are very popular- everybody wants it- they do not even care about the price.
Two thousand and one pound- that is the price suggested for these amazingly wonderful t-shirt. That is a lot, so Henry and Ralf are rich. Only when you divide this money in two it does not look so impressive anymore. Wait… Margaret wants her part of money too. She counts in the modeling fee, refreshments, commission and other expenses. She takes almost all money, but Henry and Ralf still have money which is not paid yet for those t-shirt from a secret buyer. So they do not have what to worry about, do they? It appears that Peter is that secret buyer. OMG! He does not have all the money he should pay. So children make a deal- they get everything from Peter’s Piggy bank now, and the rest they will get later- in ten years. Everything is quite fair despite of the fact that this deal was made between kids. It is better not to tell mom about this, is not it?
