Secret Window (2004)

Review Secret Window

The work of writer Stephen King has been a great source for various series and movies. I can remember watching them when I was young (for example It and Christine). The most famous movie based on his work is probably The Shining (which King actually doesn’t like). Another movie I strongly remember is The Mist, mainly for its haunting ending. The mysterious and supernatural atmosphere of the movies is something I’m always able to enjoy. Secret Window is also a “Stephen King film” I’ve know about for years, but hadn’t come around to watching. Continue reading

Nas: Time is Illmatic (2014)

Review Nas: Time is Illmatic

If you were to ask 50 hiphop fans about their favorite classic albums, chances will be that you’ll hear Illmatic by Nas named quite a few times. When the album was released it stood out. Nas succeeded in using his words to capture life in his neighbourhood in such a way that the listener got pulled into his world. His poetry, combined with strong beats from various producers including DJ Premier, Pete Rock, Q-Tip and Large Professor has resulted in an album which has gained the “classic” status. 20 years after its release, the documentary Time is Illmatic takes a look back on the album and the man behind it.

Review Hokus pokus Albert Åberg

The majority of the movies made for children play out in huge worlds with lots of adventure. Of course all that spectacle is beautiful for children, but can be a bit too much for the smallest ones. There might be too much happening or it might be a bit too exciting for them which means that as a parent there aren’t too many movies you can take them to. Hokus Pokus Albert Åberg is a film which you can take them to as it is something even the smallest ones will like. Continue reading

Les vacances de Monsieur Hulot (1953)

Review Les vacances de Monsieur Hulot

There are some areas where I’m seriously lacking in my movie knowledge and French cinema definitely is one of them. It doesn’t mean that I haven’t seen any French movies, but the total number is extremely low. It meant I wasn’t aware of the work by Jacques Tati. I have had his movie Playtime on my ever expanding to watch list, but hadn’t come around to checking it out. As a new DVD set of his movies was just released over here it was a good moment to step into the world of his most famous character: Monsieur Hulot. Continue reading

Included in that number are titles like Frozen, Despicable Me 2, Monsters University, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 and The Croods.

So an easy way to check it out and see if I missed out on something. Continue reading
