Not quite the end?

Posted: June 25, 2017 in General, TV & Movies

Watched Resident Evil: “The Final Chapter” on DVD tonight and saw Alice (Milla Jovovich) tear The Hive up and kill the virus. Still, it all ends with another opening for yet further adventures. You know what, I say give it a rest. It has been fun but enough is enough.

Interesting story though, with The Umbrella organisation targeting the world so that they themselves may live…

No men please

Posted: June 24, 2017 in General, TV & Movies

Did you know that men were not allowed to be part of the original “Wonder Woman” screening? News to me. Listen to more on this and much else of interest in the latest DAHBOO77 live chat. Perfect if you want to lie down and have a bit of a nap, listening to these chaps having a go at the mysteries out there. I like this YouTube Channel.

Listen to the June 23 Show here.

US publication Shape (July/August 2017). Actress Lily Collins on the cover. Phil Collins daughter, as a matter of fact.

Lovely cover.

Took a snapshot of the growing Babymetal collection. This one is going to keep me busy for quite a while. I would say that the foundation is in place, now I need to go for the rare and obscure stuff (like Sakura Gakuin, the limited edition Babymetal singles etc). Also, the magazines and the books. I discovered and blogged about Babymetal for the first time back on March 9. I had seen some videos then and decided that I had to look into this. On March 15 “Metal Resistance” arrived and I was blown away by the sheer power of the group. On the same day it was announced that “Live At Tokyo Dome” was going to be released and the trailer for that was obviously awesome. On March 16 my first magazine popped up, Metal Hammer 293 with the big Metallica/Babymetal feature. On March 17 the “Live At Wembley” CD arrived and I wrote a detailed review. And finally, on March 20 “Live At Budokan” popped up. Well that nailed it.

I have never looked back. Babymetal is part of this blog now, like it or not, and you will find 150 posts on them so far. That is an awful lot of history right there. On June 6 I posted the “Live At Tokyo Dome” review and watched it go viral. It was translated into Japanese and Spanish and Trinkelbonker never had more visitors than June 6-June 8. I was quite stunned by the interest. Things are back to normal now but it is nice to see that Babymetal has that interest out there.

I do have a few DVDs that I still intend to review and the general tone of what you can expect is there for all to see. Babymetal is a unique phenomenon, nothing like it has existed before and who knows where this will all go in the future. It is very interesting though and it feels good to collect something with a bit of passion again.

The Last Days

Posted: June 19, 2017 in General, TV & Movies

Saw the Spanish film “The Last Days” (“Los Ultimos Dias”, 2013) on DVD today, and it was pretty good. Humanity loses it for one reason or another and nobody dares go outside. To get from one point to another you have to move underground. This film is pretty dark but it never gets to be boring. You will be entertained.

Watch the official trailer here.

Operation Chromite

Posted: June 18, 2017 in General, TV & Movies

Bought “Operation Chromite” (2016) on a hunch, and it turned out to be pretty good. General MacArthur employs a group of patriots to help him pave the way so that he can launch the most dangerous invasion of the Korean War. Against all odds, the men fight to the death to make the invasion possible. Based on a true story, this is the stuff of legends.

Watch the official trailer here.

Got this in the mail today, the Su-metal version of the 2013 Babymetal “Megitsune” single (one of four versions). It also sports a bonus DVD with two songs (“Doki Doki Morning” and “Headbanger!”) recorded live at Shibuya O-EAST on October 6 2012 (picked from the ultra rare first DVD). Nice to see the collection grow.

Spectacular cover (including great band shot on the back), worth every Yen spent!
