One of the great events that I enjoy to attend is the Japan Film Festival which is organized in association with Japanese Embassy in Kuwait. I’m sure animation lovers will love to attend this event bearing in mind that admission is free.
Disney is here! Well Disney’s Lightning McQueen is here in Kuwait to be more precise, these beloved cute cars from Disney’s Pixar Cars movie arrived to Kuwait last night and we secretly spotted them.
Kids will love to see them in real big time! They will be displayed at the Avenues Mall from the 19th till the 24th and people can take pictures with them, they are also shown at Concours D’Elegance motorshow in Marina Crescent.
I’m sure many of you already heard or read about The 99 which was first launched in 2006 as comics featuring a team of superheroes based on Islamic culture and religion.
Dr. Naif was highly recognized in the U.S and was hosted by TED conference and honored by President Obama; his main objective is to change the perception of Islam in the west.
The 99: Unbound story revolves about characters that has special powers and use it for the good. The comics were later turned into a film that made its debut a the New York Film Festival and due for release in Kuwait on the 25th February in both Arabic and English languages.
I liked the concept, the graphics might not compete with Disney or Pixar but I’m very positive.
I saw a new shop for Grendizer fans at Al Rehab complex in Hawally today. It seems the shop sells toys, games, videos, collector items, and models for Grendizer.
We have very nostalgic fans for Grendizer in Kuwait and I’m one of them. Can’t wait to check it out ! Meanwhile, check out my previous post about the Man behind the theme song for Grendizer, Click Here
Over 25 years have passed and I still recall how all kids gathered in the A.M to watch the amazing space adventure cartoon “Grendizer“ created by the Japanese artist Go Nagai. One of the things I loved about Grendizer is the theme song and the voices, and I always wondered whose voice is that, and after 25+ years I got the answer !
His name is Sammy Clark, very well-known Lebanese singer and famous for his golden voice and successful music history. A friend of mine sent me a video of Sammy Clark being interviewed on Al Hurra TV channel and singing Grendizer theme song and that alone brought back a bunch of lovely memories.
He sang for other cartoon themes such as Jazeerat El Kanz and others. He has a nice facebook page and a website too.
