Absolute Zero – 2006 – a freezing disaster

First off, there’s a couple of things I don’t get with Absolute Zero. If you’re on an expedition to Antarctica, don’t you wear gloves in the cold? If the temperature drops to absolute zero (273 C / 459 F) everything will freeze, including the nitrogen and oxygen in the air. How can still the winds blow? How can helicopters fly? Apart from mistakes like this in the story, I think the drama work pretty good. The special...

Kill or be killed - 1976 - nostalgica de luxe!

The deadliest tournament! For some reason I have come back to the movies I liked and watched in my youth. We didn’t call them Martial Arts though. For us it was just “karate movies”. I think that it makes more sense here than in many of the Asian flicks that’s hit the surface during the years. I don’t know why but as long as it’s kung fu and oriental fighters it’s not really a karate...

Doctor Strange - 2016 - Another Piece of Marvel

Marvel delivers yet another cool movie! Just a few years ago, I wasn’t that into Marvel productions. It was more because I didn’t recognize the super heroes than that I didn’t like the actual concept of the films. To be truthful, they have always been quite esthetic to watch. They’re beautiful and they have a lot of nice action (and CGI). I think the days when we all were Anti CGI is now over. We...

Golden Queens Commando – 1982 – Asian Action Deluxe!

Golden Queens Commando is a movie I’ve seen many times. I wonder if it’s released on DVD? I don’t think so. At least I have it on VHS and I’m not gonna part from it. It’s a cheezy Asian flick dubbed into English. We get to meet these 6 or seven women. One by one we’re introduced to them and we get their story of how and why they were sent to prison. They all...

Maze Runner – 2018 – The Death Cure

I’m not sure if you even need to have seen the two previous parts of this story before you see The Death Cure. About the only thing that comes from the other movies is the characters, but sure… they have some relationships to each other that is nice to know about. I must confess that I didn’t have many memories left from the second film though. That must mean that I didn’t like it very...

Star Wars VIII – 2017 – The Last Jedi

I’m kinda impressed by anyone that attempts to write and direct a sequel to such a well-known saga as Star Wars. Everyone kinda knows the story already and chances are big that you write something that die-hard Star Wars fans consider contradictive against the franchise canon. I, myself, don’t consider myself to be a die-hard fan though. I think there’s way too much information to keep track of anyway. And besides, what can you do about it?...

John Wick – 2014 – Keanu Reeves and Michael Nyqvist

I have a mixed impression of Keanu Reeves acting skills. I don’t know why since most of the film I’ve seen with him have been quite enjoyable. Most of all Matrix I think. That ought to be the one single film that Keanu Reeves is most known for. Since this isn’t a review of that movie I will keep it brief but I keep insisting what that movie’s quality really are. It’s remembered for stunning...

Avengers 3 – Infinity War – 2018

Marvel has really done a great job weaving all the movies together. It’s been going on för some time. Characters from one franchise guesting another and so forth. But if you’re not and Marvel expert ( like I’m not) it may be hard to understand which characters that really belong together and which that doesn’t. I never read Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy or Iron man. I have some experience with Spiderman and Hulk though....

Rambo: Last Blood

Rambo: Last Blood is a perfect example of that you should conclude your own opinions rather than listening to someone else. I realize that it’s an odd statement coming from a critic but essentially that’s the truth. You should always form your own opinion and never let anyone decide what you should think. I haven’t heard anything positive about Last Blood at all but I thought it was really good. It might actually be the...

Deadpool 2 – 2018

I saw the first Deadpool in the theatre. The plan was to see the second one there as well but when I premiered I wasn’t able to fulfill that goal. Luckily I’m totally satisfied by watching movies at home. Actually, it’s my favorite way of watching movies. Comfortable and without having to travel anywhere. I just had to wait for Deadpool 2 coming out on DVD and Blu-ray. Then I forgot about it until I...
