Love Object – 2003 – a sex doll lovestroy

Kenneth works as a copywriter of sorts. Well, forget that, not of sorts, he’s a copywriter specialized in instruction books. He’s very good at his job and finished long before the deadline every time. You could say that he has a pretty boring life and lives solely for his profession. Maybe that is why he’s so efficient and fast when it comes to creating instruction manuscripts. For this new assignment, he gets a new assistant but it’s obvious...

The Last Days – 2013 – modern post apocalypse

As always when a movie gets multiple releases the cover differs a bit from release to release. Some might look very interesting just by looking at the cover and some others wouldn’t make your head turn. In the case of The Last Days, I really like the Njutafilms release. It gives me a sense of hopelessness and I think that’s  an important quality of post-apocalyptic films. Of course, there’s a need for hope as well...

Seventh Son 0

Seventh Son – 2014 – Dungeons and Dragons

I don’t know where the belief that the seventh son of the seventh son should have magical powers. One thing is for sure though. It’s nothing that was invented solely for this movie. I think it’s ancient folklore actually. But does it really matter? It’s true in the mythology universe regardless of where the idea was spawn from. When I bought this at a flea market I had no idea what it was. I could see that it...

Attack on Titan Part 2 – 2015 – The story continues

When I saw the first movie Attack on Titan I wasn’t too impressed. But since I already had both of the movies I thought it would be a shame to not watch the sequel as well. I’m not sure Attack on Titan Part 2 is a traditional sequel though. It might just be a continues story. There are however some resumé at the beginning. In my case, I didn’t need it. I didn’t wait for...

The Moment After 2 – 2006 – Confusing sequel

The Moment After was a movie about people disappearing. The Moment After 2 is a movie about something completely different. Well, not completely different of course as it is a prolonging of the concept started in the first movie. There’s absolutely no record of people disappearing though. It is like that part of the story never happened. Or maybe we were given enough explanation in the first one? The Moment After 2 is more about the conflicts between the government forces...

The Moment After – 1999 – People Disapear

This is a typical example of a movie that makes us believe it’s something else based on the cover art. To me, this looks like an end of the world action flick but once it gets going it’s more about these people disappeared. It’s a mystery from start to finish and nobody knows when really happen. There are different theories to the event though. None of them are really satisfying. The Moment after is a...

Anatomie 2 0

Anatomie 2 – 2003 – a sequel of sorts

It’s no secret that sequels often not deliver the same standard as the first in a series of films. In the case of Anatomie 2, the same director as directed the first film was given the job. If I understand it correctly, Stefan Ruzowitzky, reluctantly accepted the task after writing the script.  Based on interviews featured in the extra material the producers claimed no one else could direct his ideas so he had to come back....

Attack on Titan – 2015 – Giants eating humans

I saw a trailer for this and realized that I needed to see it. Well, first I actually was recommended it from a working colleague. He didn’t know the title of it though so I needed to search for it for a while. But since this is an internet enlightened age it didn’t take long until I realized that Attack on Titan was the movie. I also found out that there’s a series and that...

Big Eyes – 2014 – Lost Tim Burton flick

Before you say anything. Of course, this isn’t a lost film in that sense. It’s more that I have completely and utterly missed it. I found it in a used bin in a second-hand shop a few days ago and was surprised that I didn’t know about it. Since Tim Burton and his movies are favorites of mine I thought that I had to do something about it. So, I bought it and put Big...

The Believers 0

The Believers – 1987 – Satanic Cult of sorts

I saw The Believers under another title in the late 80’s. I was pretty impressed by it but since the title was in Swedish I didn’t know what movie it really was. Of course, I could have investigated at any given time. At least since internet and IMdB came into my life. After a while I totally forgot about it too. For some reason, the film surfaced in my mind and I felt that I...
