Discovering W.I.T.C.H.




My Personal History of W.I.T.C.H.

In 2001 during the year of the first released issue of W.I.T.C.H., I was a 12 year old girl still in the sixth grade and drawing anime style characters, such as Sailor Moon, terribly (I am self-taught in free-hand drawing and I have never took a drawing class). I didn't know of its existence until I saw a commercial about a new animated series called W.I.T.C.H. on the Jetix channel. At the time I didn't pay much attention to it because I was into "Digimon" ( and still am!). A few months later when it was mid-way through the airing of the first season, I got bored enough to watch an episode. At first, I thought that it was interesting and okay, but I wasn't entire hooked yet. A few weeks later after watching my first W.I.T.C.H. episode on television, my family took me and my younger brother to the nearby bookstore. There, I saw the American (slightly censored) version of the original comic series. At first, I thought that it was one of those silly comic adaptation from the animated series and didn't realized that it was actually the other way around until I did some research. I sat there in the bookstore reading the very first 6 issues compacted into 3 books and immediately saw how much of big difference it is from the animated series. I started to watch more episodes of the series, including the ones that I missed and I started to do some more research on its history. By then, I was officially hooked. I fell in love with its unique ways of story-telling and artistic style and I felt that there was a certain charm to it that I have never felt before.

After waiting months on end for the American released, I got impatient and went online instead. To my luck, I was able to find a gold mine of comic scans online and began to read those instead. After years of reading WITCH, I also began to notice the difference as it transitioned itself from one saga to the next. I noticed the changes in the art styles, then the story-telling, then the entire thing which, I admittedly think, is now crap (the changes, not the entire WITCH universe). What was once a magical experience, I find WITCH now somewhat tasteless and a shell of its former glory. There were some issues that I still think was good, while others were so terrible and childish that it makes me preferred its rival, Winx Club, more than itself (Yes, it's that bad). I am now very disappointed that WITCH isn't as great as it used to be, and I find myself criticizing some of its new issues even more. Some people might ask me, "If you don't like it, then why bother continuing to read it?" My only answer is because I can't find myself to hate it entirely. W.I.T.C.H. has been around for a while and I fell in love with it as a teenager. Although I do find that it lost most of its magical touch, there are still some moments which I thought was wonderful enough for me to continue reading.

After ten years, W.I.T.C.H. has changed greatly, but personally, I still find that it still has that certain amount of charm that I just couldn't discard easily. W.I.T.C.H. comics has been a great inspiration to me in more ways than one, and to this day I am grateful to it. After drawing countless works, I finally made a small switch to WITCH art style. Although not best at first (as I'm still learning) I suddenly find myself drawing my own W.I.T.C.H. fanart calendar series, started my very first fan-comic side story of C.H.Y.K.N. (WITCH's predecessors), and now I'm slowly developing my new idea for a full blown WITCH fan-saga (called WITCH: Dreams of Lusteria)!

Flushed Away (2006)

:star::star::star::star-empty:



I am not kidding when I said that this film originally was supposed to have pirates when they pitched the concept of this film to DreamWorks back in 2000, long before the succession of Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean, but was shot down and forced to modernized to have...ninjas. Cute, but I think they should have kept the pirates idea instead. That wasn't the only change they were forced to make as Flushed Away was originally supposed to be a stop-motioned animated film like Chicken Run and Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. However, due to several complications, they were forced to render this film into CGI. However, the style of the characters do resemble Aardman's style. I wonder if this film was delayed and made today, they would have been able to pull off the stop-motion animation completely without complication and financial problems.

Flushed Away is a story about a pampered pet-rat named Roderick "Roddy" St. James (X-Men's Hugh Jackman) being flushed away into the underground sewer city of London and is desperate to get back home before his owner returns. Used to his "royal" life up top in Kensington, Roddy just wants to get out of the dirty sewer city as fast as possible, but is finding it harder than he realized when he encountered other rats, toads, frogs, and...singing slugs. He tries to find Rita Malone (Kat Winslet), the captain of a boat to take him back up top, but when she "stole" a ruby from The Told (The Lord of the Rings' Ian McKellen), Roddy is accidentally accused of being her accomplice and the two are in one heck of a ride. Rita intends to use the stolen ruby to help finance her poor family of...a lot of rats and isn't motivated to help Roddy one bit. Roddy, raised in a high class family, discovered that the ruby is fake and offered to pay her back with real jewelries from his owner if she gets him home. Their journey to the up top world led them through several more obstacles against The Told and his Frenchy cousin Le Frog (Jean Reno) and his ninja frogs. Along the way, Roddy realized that the life he lives is very lonely compared to the one that Rita has and begins to wonder if he really does want to go back home. That decision is made quickly when he realized The Told's master plan to flush away all the filthy rats in the underground sewer city during the FIFA World Cup's halftime when every human are going to the toilet for a break. Yeah, all that flushing at the same time will cause a giant wave to drown them all.

I'm surprised that they cast a few several well-known celebrities as the main characters. When you hear of Hugh Jackman, you think of him as the Wolverine from the X-Men films or singing like Elvis Presley as Memphis from Happy Feet. I guess that's why they pointed out the joke at the beginning of the film when Roddy is deciding whether to wear his Elvis Presley suit or his Wolverine suit for play. Ian McKellen as The Toad is also a surprise as he's well known as both Gandalf and Magneto, but his deep voice is fitting to play a villainous frog. Despite many surprising choices in the voice casting, I find them very enjoyable to hear but they overshadowed by the singing slugs who tends to float by once in a while.

The story is creative and fun to watch but the best is the creativity of the rat's city. As their version of London, you have Big Ben made out of make-shift clock, plastic, and even cardboard plates, and a merry-go-round that uses tea cups as seats. It's a fascinating world full of creativity, yet sadly is pretty much glanced over in favor of the characters' adventure. While a nice film to enjoy, Flushed Away is a bit underwhelming in some aspects of the villains. While he is diabolical, it's not enough to my expectation. Ironically, his reputation is also being flushed away to some critics. Despite some low points, Flushed Away is a fun, clever film that best sprinkled with singing slugs.
