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...

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...

Kingdom of Gladiators – 2011 – Sword and Sandal

Luckily I have kind of a fetish for movies set in the ancient world with sword and sandals. Or a dream world for that matter, or a parallel universe. It really doesn’t matter. I like the barbarian culture and if there’s demons and wizards so much the better. There might even be ancient legends of doom or world destruction. All the better! Kingdom of Gladiators has a few of these elements. I don’t think there...

Smokey and the Bandit 3 – 1983 – Third installment

It’s not unusual that sequels get worse and worse the longer away from the original movie they come. Smokey and the Bandit is not an exception. The first film was fun and entertaining. The second seemed like torture for the actors and this… well… even Burt Reynolds refused this one! There are a few flashbacks in the beginning and some scenes at the end where he’s present though. I’m not sure if this is recycled...

Black Mama, White Mama 0

Black Mama, White Mama – 1973 – boobies and prison

There are so many movies, so little time. With that said I can also confess that I didn’t see Black Mama, White Mama prior to this. It was my first experience with it. In fact, I don’t think I’ve seen any films with Pam Grier before. I might be wrong of course since my memory isn’t was it used to be. But it doesn’t matter anyway. Black Mama, White Mama remains a cult classic regardless...

Shotgun 0

Shotgun – 1989 – A truly gruesome flick

Ok, let’s not kid ourselves. This is a horrible movie. The acting is so bad you could use this as a discouragement for hoe to not make a movie. The story itself is very shallow and I had no time figuring out what was supposed to be the send twist of it all. Maybe that’s not so far-fetched since many of these low budget flicks from the eighties are less than good and more than...

Smokey and the Bandit 2 – 1980 – One more time

Smokey and the Bandit was the film that I thought I saw back in the old days. It’s seems that it actually was the first movie though since I don’t reorganize anything from this one. It may seem odd that I’ve seen and reviewed thousands of flicks but never saw these classics. But that’s how it is and you can never cover everything on your frame of reference even how much you try. In this...

Smokey and the Bandit – 1977 – Car Chase Classic

All my life I thought that it was actually the sequel to this I saw in the cinema. But when I watched this (and the sequel) I realized that this was the one I saw. I don’t remember much but some fragments are clear. Smokey and the Bandit are a high speed action comedy where car chases are the theme. It’s not the kind of movie I usually like but this is pretty entertaining. Burt...

The Gladiator 0

The Gladiator – 1986 – A trip back to nostalgia land

This is yet another movie that I saw several years ago. You know when the VHS rental stores still existed. I don’t think I saw it immediately when it came out, I guess a couple of years later. I remember thinking the cover was awesome and that the movie really didn’t live up to my expectations. In other words, I remember it as a pretty lame movie. But the title was cool – The Gladiator...

Hero and the Terror – 1988 – a Chuck Norris Gem

I remember when this came out. It was something special and it was mentioned in movie mags I was reading at the time. This was not an ordinary Chuck Norris film. It wasn’t just filled with action, karate kicks and machine gun fire. In Hero and the Terror Chuck Norris breaks down and even faints. He shows himself vulnerable to pressure. Something, according to the magazine never had happened before. Well, I don’t know. I...
