Tulsa King (2022)
Steven goes to Lilyhammer, and Sylvester to Tulsa
This series feels like a direct ripoff off the comedy crime series "Lilyhammer" where Steven Van Zandt (Frank Tagliano), the wise guy who turns government witness, moves to a little town in Norway called Lilyhammer. Over there he takes over that little town and runs it with his newfound (hilariously unaware non-gangster associates). About the same thing happens to Sylvester Stallone (Dwight "The General" Manfredi). He's released from a long prison sentence but his boss doesn't wants him around and therefore sends him to run the small town Tulsa.
I won't spoil anything, I just gonna say, that if you were into Lilyhammer you will probably like this one too.
Not what you expected!
I must admit that I was sceptical when this series showed up as a recommendation on IMDb. Don't get me wrong, I love Norwegian tv shows and movies, but "Ragnarok" just strike me as a another "Vikings" rip-off. But no! Ragnarok was something completely different from every other Viking series out there. This one was different from anything I've seen before. I imagine a old 700 AD series about Thor and whatnot, but this was something different. Long story short, I was hooked after just a few minutes, and couldn't stop watching. The story is incredible and so is the acting. I just can't wait for the next season to air, and that's all I have to say.
Ragnarok, something different, something far from all the "Viking series" you have watched the last couple of years. Give this one a look and you won't be disappointed.
Top notch M/S Estonia documentary
The documentaries about the Estonia catastrophe before this one hasn't revealed anything at all about what could have happened that night of the "accident", they only left us with even more questions than before. This documentary on the other hand confirms that we weren't overreacting with conspiracies to lay the blame on someone just out of frustration. Here you'll see that foul play actually could be the reason for the ship to sink and not just by an random accident.
This is a must-watch documentary for all of you that have had an interest in the M/S Estonia catastrophe the last 25 years.
I had never heard of Banshee before. I started watching the pilot and was hooked immediately. A bunch of great actors that gives you nonstop action in a beautiful environment, what more can you ask for? I really enjoyed Banshee from the beginning to the end, without being disappointed or bored one single time. This is one of my top ten series, without doubt. The story is brilliant and the things that endlessly adds to the story through the seasons keeps you mind blown and won't let you stop watching.
To be brief.
I was really surprised how well this mini series was made. Even though I've never heard of, or seen, most of the cast before, I really enjoyed this one. The production, the acting, everything sat right with me. I highly recommend this series to everyone that appreciate true crime.
The X Files (1993)
Been watching X Files for the first time now
I really loved the series right from start, and can't figure why I waited so many years before giving it a chance.
Something I love about this series the most is the funny comedy-like episodes from time to time. I can't give you specifics on episodes or names of the episodes cause I've been marathon it everyday the past few weeks, but sometimes they're just there and you start thinking " am I still watching X Files?!" Hilarious!
One episode that made me laugh very intensely was the one where they used "bleep" every time they were using foul language. "What the bleep is this bleep?!" and "Are you bleeping kidding me?!" Or something like that. Then we have the black-and-white episode when everything seems so far from what you expect from X Files. Everybody act like they're living in the past and have very disturbing look and behaviour, in a funny way.
I love the unexpected parts now and then, especially after a few sad and depressing episodes.
Blood, gore and almost snuff
This will probably be one of the shortest reviews ever on IMDb.
Nothing much to say about this movie more than Hideshi Hino really succeeded with his goal to make a movie that would make people believe they just watched a real snuff movie and a gruesome murder. There is no story to it, it just says in the beginning of the movie that it's a re-make of a "snuff movie" that was sent to the cartoonist on a VHS. That's just rumours. But at the time of the creating of the movie this sort of thing was a hype, and the fact that this movie could be real, or at least based on a real event, just boosted the attention.
It's done very well for its time. Almost everything that happens in this movie could be real, if you don't know much about this genre, because it's so well done, like a real snuff movie. Charlie Sheen believed it was real, which gave the movie even more attention after he contacted the FBI and told them he just watched a recording of a real murder.
Nuff said. This movie is worth a rating over five just because the notrosity, that's for sure.
The Boondock Saints (1999)
Everything you want in a movie
Ok, here we go. Boondock Saints.
When I first saw this movie it immediately became one of my favourite action movies. I have seen it at least 50 times since it's premiere.
The story about the two brothers who will go to great (and I mean REALLY great) length to protect each other as well as do good, in their own point of view. And at the same time they will do whatever they feel is necessary to eliminate the bad in the world. But that isn't what makes this movie a masterpiece. The two brothers and their friend, Rocco (which also is his real name by the way), have something we all want, deep care for each other and loyalty, and nothing can come between that bond, and that's the part I think makes this movie a top 10 for all fans. The story isn't just about killing bad guys, like we seen a hundred times before, and ends with that, it has a lot of comedy, intensity and true action as well. This movie earned my high rating because of the characters and their stories most of all, but the story of the movie itself adds to it, that's for sure.
Yes, my bad English is obvious in my reviews, and the spoilers, but it is what it is. I hope a few of you appreciates my half-bad reviews and agree with few of my opinions.
Twin Peaks (1990)
My all-time favourite show
I love Twin Peaks, and I thought I should start this review (which is my first one by the way) by telling you little about what made this series one of my all-time favourite. The mystery through the whole series is just incredible. The mystic "jazz type music" that changes with characters and situations, the characters strange personalities, the unexpected happenings from time to time. Just a few examples. But I must admit that what made me fall in such deep love with this series, beside from the story itself, was the environment. Lynch and Frost couldn't have chosen better locations for the making of Twin Peaks.
Now to the story. When I first watched Twin Peaks I felt chills trough my body directly when Pete found the body on the beach "wrapped in plastic". That wasn't what I expected. After Pete's distraught call to the sheriff and Lucy's face expression after sheriff Truman told her they found a body I immediately understood that murder isn't something these people are used to. Early, almost immediately you start to feel the deep care everyone in Twin Peaks has for each other, which makes it so much more sad that this horrible crime happened at this peaceful place. The more you watch the more you start to feel for the people.
And what makes you horrified from time to time through the series isn't because of the usual stuff you see in almost every thriller/horror/mystery, no, this is on a much deeper level in a strange and psychological way, which makes it that much more terrifying. It's so different in a way that is hard to describe, something only Lynch (and in this case, Frost) can accomplish, but I know everyone who is a fan of Twin Peaks and David Lynch knows what I'm talking about.
However, I always going to miss Twin Peaks, but I get some comfort by watching a few episodes from time to time.
