Final Destination 2 - 2003 - More death!

It’s unusual, but I actually things that the sequel Final Destination 2 is slightly better than the original. The death scenes are more imaginative. Not much but a little. I also like that a cast member of the first movies is included again. In this films universe she has been around once before and have some of the answers. The concept is the same as in the first movie. Here we have a massive accident...

Judas Priest – Sin After Sin – 1977

Sin After Sin is the third album by Judas Priest and the first that I bought on vinyl back in the day. Listening to it today makes me realize that Judas Priest was still looking for a sound and experimenting when this came out. It’s kinda like listening to early psychedelic Scorpions. Not to that extreme maybe but You notice that this was made over 40 years ago. I see it as a part of...

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...
