2014

Lately there’s been a lot of Choice of Games popping up on Steam. I’ve been eager to try out some of the most beloved titles, but as they’re purely text-based, I chose to use my mobile phone to read them while laying in bed, instead of spending yet more time sitting in front of my computer screen.

Fatehaven was my first Choice of Games title ever, and the first interactive novel since some of those Steve Jackson’s make-your-own-adventure books published in the 80s. I dove in open minded and was not disappointed. 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

Movies From The 90s – 1992

This was a good year, but I think I didn’t end up having much difficulty narrowing things down.

I’ve been using and abusing IMDb for my posts, but why not, since the site is so useful. I still remember times before it. We had one of those Microsoft Cinemania CD-roms, with short reviews and pictures, I wonder how many hours I spend scouring through that data. It was something truly awesome before we started the daily internet use. Continue reading

Movies From The 90s – 1991

This year I chose mostly everybody’s favourites, it just ended up being a year like that. Still not the best year of the decade.

Continuing with the groups of ‘appreciated’, ‘quality drama’, ‘cult’, ‘weird’ and ‘obscure’. Thinking about the age limits I’m pretty sure T2 for example has had a cut version on TV. I haven’t really followed all of the versions out there but would of course recommend the uncut versions in every occasion. Continue reading

Movies From The 90s – 1990

I have a friend that was born in late 80s and thus missed out on a lot of 90s movies, while it probably was the most active movie watching time for myself. So I figured I’d recommend some great films to her and it quickly ended up being a dozen. Then I figured, why not pick a movie or a few for each year and recommend it to others as well.

I ended up limiting this to 5 movies per year and even then I had serious troubles narrowing it down in certain years. Continue reading
