The Corrupt Half – 2016 – Horror flick

The Corrupt Half was sent to me for review. I really like when that happens. Not because I get a shitload of great movies in my inbox but because it’s usually stuff that I never heard about before. There’s not much that gives me such satisfaction than seeing something I never heard about and have no idea what is. So I watched the trailer first and decided I wanted to see the complete movie. Said...

Enter the Ninja – 1981 – Franco Nero is badass!

I was still in my youth when I first saw this film. I thought it was horrible! I really liked one ninja flick and that was Ninja III: The Domination. The need to compare all other ninja flicks to that one was imminent. It wasn’t until later that I understood that not all ninja flicks deal with supernatural powers. In fact, very few of them does. Enter the Ninja is really one of those movies that...

Death Race 2050 – 2017 – Cult Classic Remake

There are remakes and there are remakes. Some of them tell the story in a slightly different way and som of the copy the original frame by frame. Death Race 2050 falls under the first category but a little bit under the second one too. It’s a very entertaining movie that follows the main story of the original – Death Race 2000. Of course the original had both Sylvester Stallone and David Carradine in the...

Pretty Little Liars – 2010-2017

Pretty Little Liars is a series that I have been following for the last couple of years. I don’t think I got on the train from the very beginning. As usual when it comes to TV-series my wife is the one who discovers them. Then she tells me about them if she thinks that I might like them. This is most probably the case with Pretty Little Liars too. I can’t complain because it’s been...

Crash 0

Crash – 1996 – David Cronenberg

David Cronenberg’s Crash is not to be confused with Paul Haggis Crash from 2004. The former had a great impact on me when it first came out. To say the truth, I was stunned by its boldness and I found it vastly provocative. I was taken with the sexual situations related to car accidents that the main characters. When I re-watched it lately I couldn’t remember most of the plot, and when I was finished...

Ninja Dragon 0

Ninja Dragon – 1986 – Not so much Ninja..

Ninja Dragon seems to be the left overs from some other ninja flick done in the same era. Richard Harrisson looks exactly the way he did in Ninja Terminator and there’s not much plot in this one. Actually there’s not much “ninja” either. There is a few scenes where they fight each other but for the most part this is more like a regular crime thriller. It’s dubbed of course but I don’t care about...

Ultraman 0

Ultraman – 1966-67 – Kaiju series

I have acquainted myself with this series for a couple of days. There are 39 episodes in total and I have seen a few so far. I really don’t know what to say about it and this won’t be a regular review of the series. It’s a Japanese giant monster genre calles kaiju. This means something like “strange beast”. That is perfectly described! There is indeed strange beasts in this series! Strange beasts that the...

Ninja Terminator 0

Ninja Terminator – 1985 – A more serious approach

I have watched a lot of Ninja films lately. They’re often great fun even if they’re badly choreographed and dubbed even worse. That reflects on the grades of course and I haven’t been kind in my judgement. I’m actually very cheap when it comes to grades so that figures. Ninja Terminator is another Ninja flick that I saw the other day. It’s much more serious than a lot of the others but not without humor....

Divergent – 2014 – A Dystopian Tale

In a future society the world doesn’t work quite the same way as we know it. There are five fractions of people and you must belong to one of them. Everyone does indeed belong to them too. Well, almost everyone. Once in a blue moon someone get past the tests without being selected to one of the groups – officially that is. These people are known as divergents and they don’t fit anywhere or… everywhere....

Daxx & Roaxane 0

Daxx & Roxane – Ticket to Rock – 2017

I don’t much about this band Daxx & Roxane. Of course if I used google I figure I would find som hits on them. I can even find me on google so I guess anything is possible. What I figure out is that they’re from Switzerland and that they were formed in 2009. But I don’t really care when they were formed. What matters is the music and how it’s delivered. As far as I’m...
