Rampage: Big Meets Bigger – 2018

Rampage is one of those movie that looks really cool on the outside, before you start to watch it. It looks stonecold to be honest. Dwayne Johnson looks tough and the animals, especially the gorilla looks awsome! It’s hard to say if it will be a totallt awasome action movie or kinda an adventurous movie aimed at younger audiances. That is before you see the actual movie. It is a little bit too ridiculous for...

Babylon 5 – the Series

When the Babylon 5 pilot The Gathering, first came out on VHS I rented it and really liked it. I know I rented another TV-movie later as well but it was never as good as the pilot. I don’t remember which one it was but I guess I’ll recognize it when I come to it. It doesn’t really matter. What I’m trying to do now is to watch the complete series in order. That apparently...

Nuclear Assault – Third World Genoside – 2005

There are basically two reasons for naming your album Third World Genoside. The first is to create a provocing effect. It could be interpereted as a “cool sounding title”. Compare it to titles like Slayers God Hates Us All and it’s kinda leaning in the same direction. Just comparing the album title that is. To compare Nuclear Assults music with that of Slayer (during any era) feels just strange. The other reason is that the...

Morbid Saint – Spectrum of Death (extended edition) – 2014

I was listening to this a couple of days ago. I don’t really know why I had it in my Spotify list. I don’t think I ever heard about Morbid Saint before, let alone Spectrum of Death. But I like to explore stuff that is unknown to me so I gave it a go. I imagine I would have somewhat different thoughts about Spectrum of Death if this were the original length album. This Extended...

King Diamond – The Graveyard – 1996

My relationship with King Diamond is kinda ambivalent. I most often like the ideas behind the albums and I like the background music. I often have a problem with the vocals though, which is more or less the calling card of King Diamond. He has a gimmick of using falsetto, the Graveyard album is not an exception. Well, if you have a problem with that singing technique you have… well… a problem. King Diamong doesn’t...

Dragonforce – Reaching into Infinity – 2017

If you ever heard Dragonforce preform, you know that the tempo is way up there. It’s so fast sometimes that you are totally astonished. And it’s not just pedal notes as can be heard in som fast Thrash Metal. There are indeed scales and patterns played absolutely furiously. Reaching into Infinity was a real treat in that sense. No holds barred, very high tempo. For Power Metal it’s not necessary, but it’s very appropriate with this...

My Little Eye – 2002 – Big Brother sees you!

I remember when My Little Eye first came out. It was pretty hated by horror film fans out there. I, for one, actually liked it. A few weeks ago I decided to re-watch it to see if I was “wrong” back then or if I actually still liked it. To be honest, My Little Eye is a somewhat “dumb” film. The acting isn’t much to brag about and there aren’t enough brutality in it. I...

Escape Room – 2017 – Can you get away?

Escape Room look gruesome, doesn’t it? Well, that’s what I though anyway. You can also add the fact that it seems very interesing plot-wise. Think of it. You have som people in a game room where the objective is to esccape for a game. Suddenly it’s not a game anymore and the people in there are subjected to real terror when a killer is let in there with them. In my mind, I was thinking...

In Memoriam – Terry Jones – 1942-2020

Terry Jones has left us. I’m saddened but comedians are not allowed to let us mourn them. The show must go on and not even in death can the show not go on. Terry was, of course, part of the great gang of Monty Python but I would say he’s the one member that’s least recognizable as being a Monty Python. He was great in every skit and all that but he’s personality wasn’t that...
