Marduk - CD
Let me be clear about this. Marduk have always made devastating black metal, and World Funeral is no exception. Actually in my opinion it is their best work to date. I have a lot of their CDs, but I always return to World Funeral as the one I choose to listen to.
What makes this such a terrific album? First of all it filled with pure hatred and psychotic evil (just listen to Bleached Bones), which makes the experience god damn intense. The production is very good, the growling vocals are sometimes so clear that you can actually hear what Legion is singing (opposed to Plague Angel, where the vocals just sounded like background burping) Reading the lyrics makes my spine chill as the all-embracing annihilation of mankind is howled out in a Christ raping destruction of music and vocals.
If you only have to listen to one Marduk album in your life, let it be World Funeral.
Family Guy: Something, Something, Something Dark Side

Something something something disappointed
If I was Seth MacFarlane, I would be ashamed - very ashamed. It is clearly that he has a thing for "Star Wars" (I do myself), but as a matter of this, I expected much better stuff than this. "Blue Harvest" was quite entertaining, but "Something Something Something Dark Side" only made me laugh once and smile a few.
MacFarlane uses way too much energy on retelling the Star Wars story that he forgets to be funny. Sure it has its moments; it is only sad that there are way too long between them.
I hope the 3rd episode will be worth seeing, but from the title "We Have A Bad Feeling About This", it looks like a bad starting point.
Tokyo Gore Police (2 Disc Collector's Edition)
This is a tough one - how do you review a film that basically has no plot? I'll try.
A mad scientist has developed a virus that mutates humans into hideous killing machines, and a special paramilitary squad, lead by the sexy and ice cold Ruka, is working hard to maintain order in the streets of futuristic Tokyo. BUT ...
It is over the top to the max with absolutely all the disgusting gore, blood, guts and violence you could ever wish for. I promise you that "Tokyo Gore Police" isn't like anything you have ever seen before, and even though I try very hard, I really can't compare to anything. What I especially love about these Japanese films is the humour; again outrageous and over the top leaving you giggle like a little school girl.
If you love plot less and brain dead films, I promise you that you will love "Tokyo Gore Police." A sure winner for me, and I can't wait to see "Samurai Princess."

I will make this short: Pick up the Hatchet if you love splatter films old school style; lots of fog, mutated villains, lots of silicone and fifty gallons of theatre blood. It is almost as good as it gets.
James Cameron's Avatar: Combi Pack (Blu-ray & DVD) (2009)

No doubt that Avatar has some mind blowing and truly impressive special effects, which that is about as fantastic as it gets.
With the fear of getting killed now, I dare to say it anyway: Avatar has stolen 90 percent of it's story from Dances With Wolves and Pocahontas. It is the story about a soldier, who is sent to spy on the locals on the planet Pandora to learn their weaknesses, so the military can move them because their land contains valuable minerals. The soldier gets very close to the locals, gains their trust, becomes one of them, falls in love with one of them and starts to fight for them. Does it sound familiar?
Though the story is embarrassing ordinary and nowhere near the Oscar material James Cameron hoped it to be, Avatar is still a joy ride from start to finish. The special effects are stunning, the actors do a good job and the film leaves you with a great feeling.

The Vanishing (1993)

Without a doubt a highly underrated movie. The story about the missing girl and her desperate boyfriend is very intense. Mix it up with a creepy Jeff Bridges and you need to watch it.
Even though it looks a bit "same same," it is the perfect thrill ride.
The Men Who Stare At Goats
23 New from
People seemed to disagree whenever this was a good or bad movie. George Clooney, Jeff Bridges and Kevin Spacey - great line up, good chances, high hopes, perfect starting point ... and major disappointment.
The film is announced as a comedy, but I was chocked of how serious the tone was. Yes, there are silly and wonderful moments, but it can almost be counted on one hand.
Clooney plays his character serious, yet with a glimpse of comedy, but it stays in the serious tone. The side characters are surprisingly indifferent. Mostly because they aren't given enough screen time. I would love to have seen more or Jeff Bridges' hippie lieutenant and Kevin Spaceys ambitious soldier.
The Men Who Stare At Goats is unfortunately wasted potential. It could have been a wonderful silly comedy, but it is a way too dark and serious drama with a minimum of funny moments.
They might stare at goats - I stared at my watch too many times to want to own it.

I know I will be a head hunted and "wanted for dead" now. But this is my honest opinion about Twilight.
Let's face it, Twilight is the new generation of youth films; sexy young vampires and werewolves having that 'special look', and I sat down open minded and wanted to like it.
Unfortunately, while watching, I kept on thinking Harry Potter with vampires (sorry girls) - all young people learning and finding love killing the evil ones. The only positive thing I can say about Twilight is that it has damn good effects. The story is insulting ordinary, the acting the A-W-E-F-U-L to the max and the chemistry between the actors non-excisting.
I have absolutely no doubt that young teenage girls will fall in love with the drop dead(!) gorgeous Robert Pattinsson, but I doubt that any other will find anything interesting about this all hyped up, ordinary and highly overrated film.
