Mythica – The Iron Crown – 2016

You can tell that the plot really thickens in this fourth movie about Mythica. The evil Necromancer get’s even more powerful and a lot of other stuff going on makes it obvious that we near the end of the story. As has also been the case before, part four continues more or less where part three left off. I still won’t give away some of the major events in the previous film if you for...

Thor: Ragnarok – 2017 – Another piece of Marvel

Thor: Ragnarok is the third installment in the series. That means that even people like me, that barely saw the comic with this hero, knows a bit of the story and characters. As a Swede, I know a thing or two about Norse mythology though. But I guess that’s really no benefit since they have changed quite a few things in these films. Of course, the main hierarchy is still there. In other words, Odin is...

Mythica – The Necromancer – 2015

With the background of what we learned in the previous part of Mythica, the subtitle might refer both to the antagonist and the protagonist. The Antagonist is, of course, the unspeakable evil Necromancer that seeks the Darkspore. The other one is Marek. If I hade to choose I’d place my money on Marek though. It seems that she evolves and gets more control of her powers even if she doesn’t fully understand them yet. On...

Mythica – The Darkspore – 2015

As I mentioned when I wrote about the first flick the universe is already existing. There are dragons and wizards and everything else that belongs to the fantasy genre. In this case even dungeons I would say. With that, I’m not stating that there are any real similarities with the classic roleplaying game Dungeons and Dragons. Mythica is its own thing and we now learn some more parts of the overall story. Kevin Sorbo is...

Mythica – A Quest for Heroes – 2014

I’m a real Fantasy nerd. The problem is, that there are very few Fantasy movies out there that are any good. At least if you ignore movies where the obvious target is an audience in the early teens. That is of course in the eye of the beholder but I think you can “feel” the difference. The adventure series Xena and Hercules belong in the early teen category while Willow does not. That’s my opinion...

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...

The Librarians

There are plenty of series that focuses on collecting and locking away magical artifacts. We have Friday the 13th: The Series, Supernatural, Warehouse 13, Relic Hunter and we have the Librarians. I’ve always loved this kind of series and this is my newest addition to them. It is based on a trilogy of movies released a few years before starring Noah Wyle. I loved them and when I first got acquainted with them I didn’t...

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?...

Dr Strange – 1978 – The lost TV-film

Ever since I was a kid I like magic tricks. Not that I necessarily believe in real magic but I like to be fooled by great illusionists. And I hate not being able to figure out the trick too. In the movie-realm magic exists of course. Real Magic. I have no problem with that what so ever. I enjoy it and I love fantasy movies with wizards and warlocks too. In Dr. Strange, we meet...

The Land That Time Forgot – 1975

Look at that poster! Isn’t it marvelous? You can see from a mile away what kind of flick The Land That Time Forgot is. You can see the adventures coming at you and you can see that it’ll take place on a mysterious island somewhere. In my world, movie poster art doesn’t get much better than this! But then there’s the movie of course. Does it keep the promises from the poster? Yes, I think...
