Peppermint Fury

Posted: March 15, 2019 in Cool stuff, General, TV & Movies

Bought “Peppermint” on DVD and watched it today. This just might be the best revenge movie ever made. Jennifer Garner is excellent in this film and I hope they make a follow-up sooner rather that later. Enough said.

I decided very early on that the kitchen in my new man cave was going to be dedicated to the past, and so it is as I have put my classic old school magazine collection (basically stuff from the last full century!) in there for easy access. Yesterday, I added a new bar table (from Midori) in there, and the first of two bar stools (the second is incoming). Just a nice little corner to grab a quick breakfast or a snack, and the option is that you have a nice reading table to check out that priceless (well, it is to me) collection.

If I have people over for dinner, I will ask them to join me upstairs and serve it with the stunning mountain view I have here overlooking the water below my property. So I can afford to be a bit eccentric in the kitchen. To me, it just works and that is all I care about really.

And yeah, I have some cookbooks in there as well, covering pretty much anything you can think of. But the bottom line is, seeing old magazine covers with Agnetha Fältskog (of ABBA fame), Raquel Welch and Jane Fonda whenever you pop in there just adds to the overall quality of life. How could it not?

Ghost In The Shell

Posted: February 25, 2019 in General, TV & Movies

I finally got around to see the Sci-Fi movie “Ghost In The Shell” and I was not disappointed. Scarlett Johansson is always good and she is quite memorable in this one. The future world looks great and the topic of A.I, robots etc is always going to be a good source for entertainment.

Good action movie.

The Dirt

And finally, it arrives. The long awaited Mötley Crue movie “The Dirt” premieres on Netflix on March 22. The first trailer went online yesterday, and the version that the band posted on Facebook has been seen almost 5,000,000 times. This bodes well and if you look at the success of the Queen movie this could all be the start of a very big trend.

Magnificent

Posted: February 20, 2019 in Cool stuff, General, TV & Movies

Watched the new Swedish DVD release of the 1965 comedy “Those Magnificent Men In Their Flying Machines (Or, How I Flew From London To Paris In 25 Hours And 11 Minutes)” this weekend. Jam packed with wonderful talent (Terry-Thomas alone as the archetypal villain makes this an instant classic) and a never ending line of jokes and funny situations, it stands tall even today as one of the great comedies of the era. Digitally restored, it is a feast for the eyes, and I love the fact that they have decided to save this one for the future.

Amazing nostalgia.

Captain Marvel

Posted: February 13, 2019 in General, Magazines, TV & Movies

I see a lot of Captain Marvel magazine covers right now, and the film is coming up in early March. This is a comic that I have never (to my knowledge) read, but I will certainly check it out regardless. Seen here are three current covers out there, German publication Screen (issue 2 2019) and UK publications SFX (issue 310) and Total Film (issue 282). Brie Larson is Ms. Marvel.

Best movie idea ever?

Posted: January 26, 2019 in General, TV & Movies

This film premieres in February and if it pops up in my neck of the woods I will see it. I will certainly buy the DVD. First of all, Sam Elliott is a great actor, and it would seem that this film suits him rather well. And with a title like “The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot”, how could it be anything but brilliant?

The trailer should go viral. Check it out here.
