The Kingdom 1 & 2 * Lars von Trier (94/97)

Kingdom 1 & 2I already had the “Riget” series, the first on crappy UK import DVD and the second on VHS, read my reviews by “browsing” “Riget”. Last week my eye fell on a 20 euros 2 DVD box with both series. That is even cheaper than my videotapes and I would have them on DVD and the first series with subtitles. To my major enjoyment I can also tell you that this box left all episode intro and outros and this release left 8 uncut hour+ episodes and not cut back to 50 minute episodes. This is the ultimate “Riget” box! Every episode starts with the story about the swamp and every episode ends with a little story by the director; the way it should be! So I suppose all you “Riget” fans out there might also want to lay your hands on this box, even if you already have the series like myself. Country mates best go to the Free Records Shop, since it is cheaper there than elsewhere.

Again somewhere

Wicker weekend

Last weekend I saw both Wicker Man films, the 1973 original and the 2006 remake and I just see that I ‘blogged’ about these films before.

Nicholas Winding weekend

Last weekend I have rewatched both “Drive” (2011) and “Only God Forgives” (2013). The films are very similar, yet very different. Both have Ryan Gosling as poker-faced main character. In both films Goslings character is involved in illegal activities, but does not really seem to want to. Of course, both films are slow and minimalistic. [...]

No blog

A “blog” with one entry every two years, that is quite cool, is it not?

It has been a couple of years since I added “blogs” to the different sections so I could share information other than reviews. Looking back, I am not entirely sure what kind of information I had in mind. I [...]

Fantasy bombast

During two airplaneflights I have killed some time watching to fantasy spectacles. First the lauded “Avatar”, second the first “Hobbit”. I did not expect “Avatar” to be some sort of “Matrix”, but the famous blue characters inhabit some sort of ‘inbetweenworld’ that men can only come using some sort of machine. The film is an [...]
