Bird Box 0

Bird Box -2018 – Sandra Bullock

It’s no secret that I often enjoy older movies more than newer ones. I wouldn’t go so far as to consider it a rule but there’s often a lot more “body” to older flicks. Some of the more modern ones tend to tell a story for the sake of bringing along a lot of special effects. I’m not saying that this is the case here since Bird Box is quite short on such extravaganza. The story is...

Greystoke 0

Greystoke; The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes

I actually saw Greystoke: the Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes in the theatre back in the day. I thought it was a true masterpiece. At this time I’ve just seen some black and white Tarzan matinee flicks on Television. If they were with Johnny Weissmuller? I can’t really remember. But I remember sing som of these in color too. Maybe my mind playing tricks on me but I can remember watching these when...

Borgman – 2013 – A very odd film…

Once upon a blue moon, you come across a truly different movie. Borgman is one of those flicks where you initially start thinking about the meaning and significance of some of the events. It’s very interesting to see the development and it’s actually really suspensive. And that is just because everything is not force-fed down your throat. The director and screenwriter force us – the audience to think a bit for ourselves. That’s what I...

Vanity 0

Madman’s Choice – Vanity – 2017

I don’t know if Madman’s Choice wants to sound heavy or not. Or if they want to sound “out there”. I think they succeed with the latter. It’s kinda in the terms of Stoner Rock and it sounds like a long psychosis. A mild psychosis that is. There are plenty of bands where you easily can use the metaphor “high as a kite” for describing the music. Vanity has just a tad of that. I think it’s angled...

Funky Abba 0

Nils Landgren Funk Unit – Funky Abba – 2004

Once in a blue moon a cover album worth mentioning pops up. To be honest, most of these are pretty unimaginative an boring, often just containing the song in a common arrangement. Of course, you can hear different voices from the original but everything else is usually quite the same. Funky Abba is different though. I should have realized that immediately when I picked it up as Nils Landgren doesn’t do anything but his own...

Theresa & Allison 0

Theresa + Allison – 2018

I have seen a few short films from Jeremiah Kipp prior to this. He certainly has a talent for creating beautiful films. Theresa + Allison is no exception to this. Beautiful films and vampirism are kinda synonymous as well so I’m not that surprised. We get to follow a fresh vampire and the story is told in fragments and not linear either. I like that. Something happens that calls for a flashback and we get...

Karma Hammer 0

Lord of Cyclopses – Karma Hammer – 2017

  To be honest with you I have a hard time listening to music with too processed vocals. Lord of Cyclopses has this. At least on this album – Karma Hammer. The music is somewhere in the crosslands between old school hard rock and more modern radio heavy rock. It’s ok to listen to but nothing that gets me too excited. I would have liked some more riffs and some less basslines. But on the...

Diamond 0

Nocean – Diamond – 2017

I reviewed Nocean once before I think. It was on another blog and another language though. I don’t remember much from my experience back then but I think I liked it pretty much. Therefore I was interested when I learned that Noceans new album Diamond was gonna be released on December 1st, 2017. This could be something for Christmas was my thoughts. But I don’t like it that much. I mean, it’s ok and it has...

Post Apocalyptic Commando Shark 0

Post Apocalyptic Commando Shark – 2018

I spend a lot of time on social media. I may not write too much on there but I read a lot and on occasion I get tips about movies done by people I never heard of. Post Apocalyptic Commando Shark is such a movie. Mostly these movies are horror flicks of some sort and when reading the title I thought nothing else of this one. Taste the title – Post Apocalyptic Commando Shark – what...

Yolanda 0

Yolanda – mijn verhaal

I would be lying if I said that this wasn’t a tough book to get through. It’s not only that the theme is totally horrifying, dealing with child abuse and torture. There are graphic descriptions of incest and even murder of infants. That isn’t the worst part. The worst part is the Yolanda is a real person and that this is her story of what happened to her. I’ve read my fair share of extreme...
