Penny Dreadful – Season One

2014

Penny Dreadful already finished its second season last summer but I’ve only seen the first. I’m terribly behind in most of the TV series but I’ll try to put a word or two for some of the better shows anyway. This show is wonderfully bleak and gritty compared to the many beautiful, almost fairy tale like stories out there. There’s sex and blood and death. Continue reading

Movies From The 90s – 1999

The last year. Sorry about being lazier the further I got with the decade. But aren’t we going out with a bang? So much good stuff that I just want to weep. Fight Club and The Matrix are in the IMDb top20. Sixth Sense, The Green Mile and American Beauty a bit further down. Even skipping all these, I have a lot of issues limiting things down to 5. And I shouldn’t skip them really, they’re all great psychological movies, albeit from very different angles. Continue reading

Movies From The 90s – 1998

Nearing the end… First I thought I’d only have a couple of movies for this year but looking into it a bit more I didn’t end up having hard time at all finding five (and more) suitable films for the year.

I won’t bring the boring categories back, but there’s at least Johnny Depp! I don’t remember enough about these movies, I’ve only watched Dark City in the recent years, but they were awesome back then, so I still believe them to be awesome today – and will eventually confirm this by watching them again. The movies are arranged according to their current IMDb popularity. Continue reading

Hybrid Child

Score: 8.0
(PG-13)
4xOVA 2014-2015

“Everyone” should have heard about Junjou Romantica created by Shungiku Nakamura. It’s the boys’ love 101 title these days. Junjou Romantica anime is currently airing its 3rd season (and I’m watching it) but earlier this year I checked out Hybrid Child which is already the 3rd anime adaptation made from Nakamura’s manga titles. Continue reading

Movies From The 90s – 1997

This is the year of the sci-fi and bizarre. I’m just going to forget my categories since I can’t place these movies in them. All these films are highly popular cult movies with fantastical elements. And there are even plenty of great sci-fi movies that got left over from my list, including Contact, Men In Black and Starship Troopers. Continue reading

Movies From The 90s – 1996

Only a few years left and it’s getting harder and harder to fit these titles to those silly categories I made. All of them are cult movies, all of them!

Anyway, this year’s a bit wonky one. All of the titles are somewhat weird or disturbing, but that’s the way I like my movies. And to be honest, like 90% of all of these 90s movies of mine have been a bit weird – at least compared to the regular American blockbuster drama or action flick. Continue reading
