Ragnarok

Posted: October 22, 2017 in General, Magazines, TV & Movies

I guess we live in the age of Marvel & DC like never before now. How many movie magazine covers are dedicated to the heroes of past comic books these days? And is it going to last? This cover comes from Portugal, Mundo dos Super Heróis (October 2017).

Watch the official Thor: “Ragnarok” trailer here.

Wonder Woman

Posted: October 17, 2017 in General, TV & Movies

Watched “Wonder Woman” on DVD this morning and all in all it was pretty good. Gal Gadot is obviously perfect for this and I hope that we get to see her in at least another four or five movies (counting the DC franchise) before this chapter is over. I could mention a couple of things that I did not appreciate so much, but I will let it go. It is the times we live in.

Van Damme

Watched the latest Jean-Claude Van Damme film on DVD this morning, “Kill´Em All”. I just like the guy and so I support him. He is smarter than most, you may not know that about him but it is true. Nice to see Peter Stormare in this one, he is from my neck in the woods.

Watch the trailer here.

Added a bit of Babymetal history to the old collection this week, a Sakura Gakuin CD/DVD titled “My Generation” that was released in Japan on March 13 2013. The CD features 12 tracks from Sakura Gakuin projects like Babymetal (Heavy Music Club), Minipati (Cooking Club), Sleepiece (Go Home Club), Pastel Wing (Tennis Club) etc. Suzuka Nakamoto (Su-metal) sings a solo song and all in all it is very nice J-Pop, except for the “Headbanger!!” track from Babymetal. Little did they know then that this particular project would take off to the stars but they were already doing concerts and they were soon to be signed for bigger things to come. The DVD is what you really want here though, since it sports some really nice stuff. Especially a surprise party that the gals did for Suzuka since she was soon to graduate. This is very touching and it reveals how much love and respect that everybody felt towards her (she had been a Students Council with quite a lot of responsibility for the group for some time when this went down). You get to see a lot on these Sakura Gakuin releases, especially the DVDs. No other successful act has the early history captured as good as Babymetal on these early releases. You have to get this stuff on import from Japan but it is totally worth the effort if Babymetal is your thing.

Watch the surprise party for Suzuka (with english subtitles) here.

The first week of November is going to be expensive for Deep Purple fans. Not only do we get the mega “A Fire In The Sky” Compilation (in several formats, see earlier post), we are also getting the much anticipated “inFinite – The Gold Edition” (Limited Edition). This is a double that also features the full concert from Hellfest 2017 (in France) as a bonus CD. This concert will also be released on a three Vinyl set titled “The inFinite Live Recordings Vol.1”. And to top all this off, there will be a DVD documentary called “From Here To inFinite” on release on November 3 (the magic date) as well. All in all, if you want it all, it will cost you.

View the new video for “The Surprising” here. Note the little details that represents the career of Purple.

Nice Isis Valverde cover

The Rolling Stone brand is expanding. This is the Portuguese edition (August 2017). Brazilian actress Isis Valverde on the cover.

Just in from Peru. The Willax TV Channel over there will broadcast a documentary on Babymetal on October 14 (Saturday). Seems to be part of a show called Asia-Pop TV. So let me get this straight… Peru has Babymetal on before we do here in Sweden?

This is driving me bonkers…
