Behind Convent Walls – 1978 – Walerian Borowczyk

I’ve seen a few movie by Walerian Borowczyk before. I think they’re all more or less kind of difficult to watch. Not because of the adult themes often included in them but for the slow-paced process of the plot. Behind Convent Walls isn’t an exception from that rule. There’s actually not much going on. It’s more like a snapshot of what goes on behind the closed-door of the convent. And let me tell you, there...

Iced Earth – Plagues of Babylon – 2014

If you look at the cover of Plagues of Babylon, or any Iced Earth album for that matter, you might get the impression that the music is very violent. That isn’t the case. It’s metal music of course but less death and more power metal. It’s a pretty nice album, not fantastic but well worth a listen if you’re into symphonic and melodic power metal. Plagues of Babylon is kind a of aggressive album. The band...

Stereoside – Hellbent – 2016

First of all I need to state that this might be an unfair review. Stereoside is more or less a post grunge band, a genre that I’m generally not to into. I think Stereoside does a good job with Hellbent though. Especially for the first half of the album. The opening track Miracle is a different approach to music altogether. I like the melody and it doesn’t have as distorted sound as grunge bands can...

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night – 2014

The cover of this bluray is filled with superlatives. I think the quote’s are a bit exaggerated but it’s basically the truth. A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is a gorgeously shot and visually stunning film. It is strange and special but it might not be the best vampire movie ever made. Not that I can pinpoint that to any one vampire film right now. There are a few beautiful vampire movies out there. I don’t...

In Memoriam – Jerry Williams – 1942-2018

There’s no question what so ever about Jerry Williams status as an icon in the music business. He was active in the rock n roll scene for over 50 years. I remember him well from my youth and I believe I got some of his records back then, just to check him out. And I must admit that musically, he wasn’t my favorite by a long shot. I liked his persona though and I’ve later come...

Texas Hippie Coalition – Dark Side of Black – 2016

Texas Hippie Coalition is a pretty new acquaintance to me. That is what happens when friend recommend bands to listen to. I’m glad I have such friends. Friends that know what I like and aren’t afraid to share their experiences of different bands that might not be as know to the public as som of the biggest bands out there. And it really doesn’t matter if It’s music that stick to me as much as Texas Hippe...

11 Albums that formed me – a list

I Wanna Be somebody! Let’s start of this list with the first album from shock heavy metal band W.A.S.P. came out when I attended school. 1984 if I’m not mistaken. I still remember the school yard pounding out I Wanna Be Somebody from the portable stereos of the metal heads. I was evidently ne of them since I remember having my cassette player at school at this time. I still like this album a lot....

The Haunter of the Dark II - 2017 - Shoestring budget

First of all, I regret that I have to say that I haven’t seen the first movie. It has happened before that I’ve seen movie in the wrong order and it’s never good. I have no idea if The Haunter of the Dark part one is connected to part two in any way. I have done my best to see it as a stand alone feature. To get som basic information about the previous film is...

I, Safiya – 2005

It’s easy to read this book as a statement against Islam but I don’t think that is the purpose. Safiya refers to Allah time and time again and she’s thankful for her beliefs. Allah is greater. You can have what opinions you like about her situation but for her, it’s reality. If your opinion after reading this angers you against Islam I think you’re making your own assumptions. I realize that it’s hard to separate...

Till Death Do We Rot – 2018 – A zombie love story

Till Death Do We Rot is a short film by Emir Skalonja. As a short film, it’s always hard to bring out a complex story. There’s merely not the time to tell anything too advanced. I usually look for things that can trigger my feeling in this kind of movies rather than groundbreaking stories. In this case, there is a cool atmosphere and the shots are very beautiful, at least to begin with. Till Death Do...
