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...

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...

Feed the Light – 2014 – Lokalvårdaren

If you have high hopes when it comes to a movie, or something else for that matter. You usually end up disappointed. Or even very disappointed. In this case the reality is quite the opposite. I thought Feed the Light would be a good film and when I saw I realized that is was more than that. This is not a good film; this is a great film. I would even consider it a masterpiece....

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them – 2016

It’s easy to believe that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them would be up to par with JK Rowlings famous Harry Potter saga. This is far from the truth though. At least it is in my mind. I wasn’t even aware that it was a JK Rowlings story until the end credits. Of course I should have made the connection when Hogwarts are mentioned, but I didn’t. It’s actually referenced several times but I...

Kong: Skull Island – 2017 – Does size matter?

I totally missed this one. It wasn’t until a few weeks ago, when I visited Denmark, that I saw the movie poster. I said to myself that I need to see this. This task is now done! Samuel L. Jackson and John Goodman are the most famous actors in Kong: Skull Island. At least in my mind. They do a good job with what they have to work with. I think the script is pretty sparse and...

The 3 Worlds of Gulliver - 1960

If my memory serves me, Gulliver visited seven places during his four voyages. In Jonathan Swift’s original novel that is. with that said I must admit I was rather confused by the title – The Three Worlds of Gulliver. Which  of these travels would be included? Well, as the cover tells us, the first voyage, that to the land of Lilliput. Where very small people reside is included. This is the most famous story of course so it...

Jack the Giant Slayer - 2013 - Looking good

I’ve lost count of how many adaptions I’ve seen of this classic tale. There is Jack the Giant Slayer, Jack and the Beanstalk and Jack the Giant Killer to name a few. I’m sure there are loads of other as well. Common for them all is that there’s a land above the cloud where giants (and other creatures) live. To get there you must climb a giant beanstalk. To get the beanstalk you need to...

Dragonquest – 2009 – Asylum brings Marc Singer

Marc Singer might be most famous for  V –  the series, or Beastmaster. The latter might apply more to fans of cult movies of course. In either case he’s the most famous name is Dragonquest. Jason Connery, the son of Sean Connery does a part as well but I wouldn’t count either of them to the great stars of cinema. Daniel Bonjour does the main part as the chosen one. He is as good an...
