    Interview: Terry McGovern Talks Voice Acting and Launchpad McQuack

    Interview: Terry McGovern Talks Voice Acting and Launchpad McQuack

    Terence McGovern is possibly one of the most memorable voice actors from the days of Disney's Afternoon. From Ducktales to Darkwing Duck, we knew Terry as the voice of the lovable but accident-prone Launchpad McQuack. Mr. McGovern's decades-long career includes roles in Mrs. Doubtfire, THX-1138, and several video games.


    It was my great privilege to talk to Mr. McGovern this week about his experiences in front of the camera and behind the microphone. What words of wisdom does he have for up-and-coming artists looking to break into the industry? Check out our interview below as we reminisce and look to the future.


    I want to thank Terry again for taking the time out of his day to speak with us. We also thank him for all the memories he gave Generation X as we grew up watching Launchpad crashing planes but continuing to be a hero with a heart of gold.


    Thank you, Terry. It has been an honor to speak with you.

    Scott ‘Toy Guru‘ Neitlich Talks Mattel, He-Man, The Toy Industry

    Scott ‘Toy Guru‘ Neitlich Talks Mattel, He-Man, The Toy Industry

    Remember Matty Collector? Ah, those were the days when it was exciting to be a toy collector. Mattel was hitting home run after home run with DC Classics, Ghostbusters, and Masters of the Universe figures. The renowned toy company even produced excellent replicas like the Ghost Trap, Neutrona Wand, PKE Meter, and Marty McFly's Hoverboard.


    Scott 'Toy Guru' Neitlich of Spector Creative is the man we have to thank for quite a lot of Mattel's collectibles from the late 2000s and early 2010s. Scott was a brand manager for Mattel, and in his own personal time, he helped He-Man establish a foothold in the collectors market after having been dormant for many years.


    We spoke with the Toy Guru about his experiences in the toy industry and where it could be headed in the future. Check out our interview here:

    Scott has many videos dedicated to not only the Masters of the Universe and DC Classics lines, but he also covers Mattel's Ghostbusters figures and toy trends. Wonder why so many pegs are empty at your local retailer? Mr. Neitlich has an answer. There are hours and hours of information to be found at the Spector Creative YouTube Channel.

    Uwe Boll Talks Filmmaking, Fighting, and Criticism

    Uwe Boll Talks Filmmaking, Fighting, and Criticism

    Dr. Uwe Boll is many things. A writer, producer, director, filmmaker, boxer, and Ph.D. He is also famous for his big screen video game adaptations. From House of the Dead to Postal, Boll has turned many famous and infamous games into equally notorious movies.


    The good doctor gave us a few minutes of his time to talk about his early days in filmmaking, his move to big budget films, and the criticism he faced during his journey.


    https://youtu.be/PNDwRE7rt98


    During the interview, I mentioned that his rise in fame/notoriety also came when overly-cynical internet reviews and videos were hatching. For example, many years ago, we riffed House of the Dead over at Dread Central. I'll admit, it wasn't funny. But, at that time, Boll's movies were the butt of the joke. He was an easy target, and believe me, and people took advantage of it.


    The reasoning may also be because they're safe things to tear apart. In my younger days, editors would tell me that certain films, directors, or studios were off-limits for scathing reviews. A friendly director with the site I was working for would have to be handled with care. Or if we often got event invites from a studio, we'd have to treat its worst movie as though it were only mediocre.


    When you hear complaints about "access media," this is what we mean.


    When you watch around ten direct-to-video indie films a month, you start to forgive the "sins" found in Uwe Boll's movies. After rewatching a few of them, it is clear there are technical issues, plot issues, and, as Uwe admitted, casting issues. However, the vitriol critics and YouTubers had for the filmmaker feels exaggerated.


    What are your thoughts on Dr. Uwe Boll's films? Do you have any favorites? Let us know in the comments.
