Wish Upon – 2017 – Be Careful What You Wish For!

I really like the concept of a supreme being granting wishes. Wishes that come true but just not in the way the wisher intended. The prime example of that is Wishmaster and its sequels of course. There are other films as well, where an object brings happiness whilst bringing unhappiness to someone else. The balance must be maintained I guess. Will that in mind I was very curious of Wish Upon. I kinda knew which...

Van Halen – II – 1979

The story about the second Van Halen album follows the story about this debut album. I got it on vinyl in my youth but never really cared för it. Listening to it now makes me realize the virtuosity of Eddie Van Halen. And the cover art might be one of the best ever. I really like the clean look with just a gigantic logo. Music wise, II sounds kinda like the debut album. There’s no...

The Hunger Games – 2012 – Macabre…

I saw The Hunger Games before. In fact, when it was still new and maybe not as hyped as it has become. I wasn’t that impressed. The similarities with the Japanese movie Battle Royale were too great to really let this sink in. Because if we’re going to be honest here. The Hunger Games isn’t half as macabre as Battle Royale. There isn’t as much shock value and there isn’t the really raw feel to...

Van Halen – Van Halen – 1978

Once upon a time, I bought this debut album with Van Halen on vinyl. I still have it by the way. If I ever listened to it I don’t know. At least I had no memories from it whatsoever. I have listened to other albums with Van Halen that I didn’t think we’re that good though. But for some reason, I started to watch some Van Halen documentary on Youtube. That made me wonder, Were...

As Above So Below – 2014 – Exploring the Catacombs

I don’t know how many times I said it already, but once the cover art is as appealing as this, the movie just has to be good! That’s not true of course. No film should be judged solely by the cover art. But still, I think people develop a sixth sense for these kinds of things. When you can enough experience you can tell the probability of this och that movie being good. As far as...

Final Destination – 2000 – Is death the end?

What you remember of movie isn’t necessarily always what you impression of them are when you re-watch them. I remembered this as a gruesome movie with lots of innovative deaths.  The story itself revolves around just that – death. We have a few teenagers on a flight to Paris when one of them has a premonition. He sees in a vision that the plane is gonna crash and tries to get every one of the...

Texas – Jump on Board – 2017

Once upon a time I got one of the earliest albums with Texas. I think it was even the first album they made. Because I liked it so much I soon got all the other albums as well. I noticed that the musical style changed of the years though and Jump On Board is another logical development into the pop area. In the beginning it was more kind of blues rock but that’s long gone....

100 song playlist

Finally, there’s an official Music playlist on the site again. It’s not such a simple task as you might think to create one of those. At least not for me. I don’t know if you have more talent for choosing favorite songs than me. I would sure love to see and hear your lists! I had some rules when creating this. 100 songs, no more and no less Not more than 3 songs from the same artist...

Jack Russell’s Great White – He Saw it Comin’ – 2017

Once upon a time I listened to a band called Great White. I have long since them forgot all about them untill I got my hands om He Saw it Comin’. My belief was that Jack Russell’s Great White was actually the same band. I have, however discovered that this isn’t the case. When the former Great White singer Jack Russell started use the name for his solo band the other members took the matter...

Return to the Batcave - 2003 - Holy Macaroni!

I am a big fan of Batman the movie from 1966. It wasn’t good but it was great fun! And The intent of the movie and original series for that matter was purely entertainment in my mind. The suits were tacky and the jokes were even worse. That’s probably why I like it som much. And there was the text signs that said POW, BANG and KAPOSCH. So cool! So what to expect from Return...
