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...

Ultraman – 1966-67 – Kaiju series

I have acquainted myself with this series for a couple of days. There are 39 episodes in total and I have seen a few so far. I really don’t know what to say about it and this won’t be a regular review of the series. It’s a Japanese giant monster genre calles kaiju. This means something like “strange beast”. That is perfectly described! There is indeed strange beasts in this series! Strange beasts that the...

Divergent – 2014 – A Dystopian Tale

In a future society the world doesn’t work quite the same way as we know it. There are five fractions of people and you must belong to one of them. Everyone does indeed belong to them too. Well, almost everyone. Once in a blue moon someone get past the tests without being selected to one of the groups – officially that is. These people are known as divergents and they don’t fit anywhere or… everywhere....

Dr Alien - 1989 - Lots of tits

Possibly the silliest movie I’ve ever seen. But kind of cool in a strange way. Judy Landers is sort of a sexy teacher who turns out to be an alien. She and her colleague performs some experiment on one of the student. This transforms him from a nerd to a really hut hunk that all the girls want. Most of this flick is an excuse for exhibit boobs. I don’t mind it at all but...

Predestination – 2014 – Time travel gone confusing

I really like films that challenge my intellect. There are few times I’m confused by them even if the message isn’t clear. Often you can make philosophical och metaphorical conclusions and by such means “get” the movie. Particular hard to understand are time travel flicks. Especially if the time travel occurs back and forth where the characters meets themselves in the past. Or in the future for that matter. Predestination takes this one step further...

Creepozoids – 1987 – The cheesiest flick out there?

If you think the artwork on the cover looks cheesy, think again! The film itself is far cheesier than the cover art give it credit for. But that’s the whole point of Creepozoids. You can just taste the title. So fantastic! and the monster are rubber fetishism extreme! I kind of love these premiss. Because if this was made to look good and the acting was Oscars material it wouldn’t be half as amazing. Then...

Slave Girls From Beyond Infinity - 1987 - The cheezy flick

There’s nothing like a nice cheesy flick! And whoever says this isn’t cheesy is either a liar or a fool. From the very beginning of Slave Girls From Beyond Infinity this is a hilarious experience. From the very first spoken line you realize that these actresses weren’t chosen for their acting skills. On the contrary they have pretty nice bodies and there’s even scenes were they have to act topless. I think the challenge was...

Rogue One 0

Rogue One - 2016 - A Star Wars Tale

A long time ago in a galaxy far away… Well, doesn’t all Star Wars films start in the same way? I think this approach is a stroke of genius actually. To put the story in the past rather than the future. This might very well be the one thing that divides Star Wars from all the other  Sci-Fi flicks out there. It’s also a long continuous saga that soon will span over even more adventurous...

Alien Nation – 1988 – A world of enslaved aliens

When Alien Nation originally came out on VHS I rented it. Yes, in those days you actually rented movies. It wasn’t until later that you actually started buying them. At least that’s true for Sweden. I remember that I was fond of the story and that the Aliens seems to be more human than humans at times. It didn’t even occur to me that the aliens was a metaphor for the racism that’s already present...
