in the 50's and 60's the world was going nuts over the giant monster movies, monsters like Godzilla and King Kong had gained a cult following and it is therefore no surprise that the danish company Saga Studios attempted to jump on the bandwagon, the result is one of the most underrated movies in Danish film history.

The movie starts out in Lapland where a couple of miners led by a guy named Svend is drilling, suddenly they get blood and flesh on the drill and decides to send a sample to the Aquarium of Denmark.

The Professors there, concludes that it is the remains of a unknown species of Dinosaur, and after an error with keeping the specimen (being a tail) cold, it start to regenerate, turning out to become a fullfledged undestroyable dinosaur with wings!

Reptillicus (as it is named) starts flying around, first destroying Hamburg and Stockholm before attacking Copenhagen where it is defeated with a poisonus supergrenade shot into it's mouth.

The movie ends with a blown-off foot lying on the bottom of Øresund, which could regenerate to a new monster..

unfortunately, Danes are weird creatures who cant love something for the sake of the camp value, and Reptilicus remains the only one of it's genre to ever be made in Denmark.

I really like this movie, even though the effects are bad it could be made great, when my company gets bigger, i'm definately going to do a remake.

ONE MORE THING: This Blog has somehow turned into a place where i talk about lesser known popculture phenonemons and such. I think i'll just keep it that way.

I love anime.

I'm currently watching The Cowboy Bebop and Astro Boy cartoons.. and i gotta say.. it's funny how sci-fi anime is amongst the most classical series out there.. series like Akira, Neon Genesis Evangelion and .Hack//Something or another is highly regarded as being either art or absolute classics.. it makes one wonder if the japaneese have some of their technological skill from being so interested in Sci-fi.

I've also watched Death Note 1 & 2 now.. Theese movies could teach alot of american companies just HOW to make comic books into movies.. especially considering what they're planning to do with the new Dragonball Movie. They follow the series enough to not actually just copying them and being utter redicolous because lets face it, following the source material is great, but from a financial and artistic point of view it would be just plain retarded to not try and improve without destroying the orginal stuff.

The changes between the Death Note series and movies is really not all that big and they're barely noticed (to me atleast) of course there are some characters removed, forexample the crime syndicate isnt in it at all, instead it's a journalist that gets the Death Note while Light's plan about forgetting the Note is going on.

Theres also no M or N, only L. But that actually great because M and N just felt unesscesary in the original series (in my opinion)

oh well.. that's my 2 cents..

My idea

I like to consider myself a writer, I do a lot of different stories (none of them professional yet) but I still like to see myself as one.

recently I read Frank Millers "Return of The Dark Knight" and that inspired me to a Batman story, for those of you who don't know the story is about Bruce Wayne becoming Batman again in the age of 50 after ten years.

Anyway, i like the story, and i like "Batman of the future" (the cartoon show) and then i got an idea:

Batman: True Rebirth.

an employee of Wayne Enterprises wakes up in an alley, he has been attacked by some villains.. he notices he still has his wallet.. then he turns around and finds Batman, Dead. For whatever reason he takes off his mask and get's surprised that Bruce Wayne, his employer, is The Batman.. for the sake of his heroes reputation he takes the costume with him when he leaves the scene and calls the police.. the villains is jailed for Bruce Waynes murder and the attack of him.

some time after he decides that Batman can't die, so he sews the costume to fit him and puts it on, taking on the mantle of The Dark Knight..

but after a while, he runs into a pissed off Nightwing.

what do you think of the idea? please comment.

Batman and Spider-man

So, I and a friend talked about the Dark Knight and that was when I realised: The Dark Knight is pretty similar to another superhero movie, namely: Spider-man 3!

How are they similar you ask? well sure they look different but if you dig into the basics there are some similarities:

1. In both movies, the main characters thinks of stopping their heroic careers (I think)
2. in both there's three villains
3. in both movies, a main villain and fan favourite appears at the last 15 minutes of the movie but gets defeated almost at the same time
4. both are superhero movies, though they focus more on the villains
5. in both movies, the main character looses someone close to him

So there you have it, stolen or accident? you decide. Though it probably has nothing to do with each other.

Awesome Title is Awesome, Yes.

I've just reread The comic: Justice League of America meets The Avengers.

What do I have to say about it? probably nothing that hasn't already been said, it's a good story.. but not executed very well.. I mean sure, it's hard to think up a premise for clashing to separate worlds.

The book is pretty weird if you aren't a well-balanced DC and Marvel reader, you have to know what in the world is going on in both universes to understand what the hell is going on, and though I did my best to research (Wikipedia is your friend) I still had a hard time catching on. I guess the most hard part understanding was exactly WHO some of the characters were, I mean I'm familiar with them a little.. I know about guys like Superman and Iron man (and to be frank, who doesn't?) but when it came down to characters like The Vision or who the hell was dressed up as Green Lantern I got lost.
