This is just too cool. I decide to take a two month break from Skullknight and the moment I return a new episode arrives! Must be a sign from above. :void:

The most interesting thing about 331 as far as I'm concerned is Moonlight boy using the branches of the Ganishka-tree as some sort of warp-gate. It makes me wonder just how immense it is. Are the branches now stretching around the entire world? It would make sense given the various Yggdrasil comparisons.

That's some immense puke. You know your health bar is low when you're spewing up blood with whole ships in it!

That was the sea god? Guts fought apostles tougher than that. Heheheheh
I'd say he had the advantage of a strategy that would have been impossible on other enemies like Zodd etc. In this case fighting the enemy head-on would have been impossible, so instead he took opportunity of its giant size that allowed him to "sneak in".

I think the Sea God was one terrifying opponent. Its mere heartbeat was enough to floor Guts.

Seems like we've got an awesome episode. In the third image the Sea God looks like a gigantic evil pacman. :troll:

Along with Underworld: Evolution Resident Evil: Afterlife is one of my biggest guilty pleasures of all time, so I'm actually looking a wee bit forward to this :troll:. One thing I like is that they are not even trying to adapt the stories from the original games (if they do I sure as hell can't see it), but takes a multitude of elements from all of them, exaggerates to the intergalactic extreme, mixes everything together in a spectacularly messy fashion - what we call a "sausage movie" in Norway - and yet manages to be somewhat entertaining. My only (giant) gripe is that in the right hands (definitely not in Paul WS Anderson's) these movies could have been real substantial instead of just being flashy, funny rubbish.

"Badass" and "manly" - overused by childish action fans.

The phrase "Do right by him/her" - Used to the absurd extreme in Keith Giffen's rape of the Battle Royale manga. 

"Agenda" - Especially when it's combined with Atheist, Anti-Christian, Satanistic, Ungodly, etc.

"Propaganda" - used to describe all opposing views.

"Brainwashing" - see above...

"WAKE UP" - Conspiracy morons, who can't understand why people won't take David Icke seriously write this in block letters at the end of all their messages.

Thanks a lot. Yeah, I thought "Luca?" the moment I saw Isma's mother.

The merrows are using soundwaves? If they stun the Sea God it could give Guts a chance to do some carnage.

Decapitated's new one is just ... it's like they caught the djen flu from Meshuggah but couldn't do it right. The album sounds like a watered down Chaosphere with no dynamic song-writing.
Have to disagree here. I thought they used those "Meshuggaisms" quite well, and so far this is actually my favorite metal album of 2011.

One of my summer favorites:


Played it to death during military service ages ago. They haven't been up to this level ever since unfortunately, but this one will live forever.
I'm waiting for the day someone reinvents the mid-nineties electro scene.

Custom tagline: "The warmest place to hide, is inside the turd of a remake."

Wasn't this supposed to be a prequel? Because it looks just like the 82 one, but with a chick.
As a Norwegian I hope this one at least improves our horrible grenade-throwing skills from Carpenter's movie.  :ganishka:

I will stand outside the cinema at the premiere along with Westboro Baptist Church carrying a banner saying "God hates Adam Sandler".

Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals



To quote Scream 4: "Fuck me wow!" If they are still making movies like this I sure don't know about them. The task of combining sexploitation with cannibal exploitation was way too big for a director like Joe D'Amato (this is easily the best movie of his I've seen though), but I was actually entertained by his effort, no matter how laughably tasteless it was. It was considerably less sleazy than the hardcore porn he started making in the 1980/90s, and the gore was quite tame for a cannibal movie, especially compared to the ones that would show up a few years later (Cannibal Holocaust, Cannibal Ferox etc). The funniest thing about these films is to try and figure out what kind of ridiculous scenario they will use to make Laura Gemser and the rest of the female cast lose their clothes. They actually came up with some creative solutions here!

Trailer for the next Pixar movie, Brave: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYg0VgPy6Uk
I got Ico/Shadow of the Colossus vibes from it. Looks a hell of a lot more interesting than Cars 2.

Edit - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VdONYkKFmQ. This actually looks interesting to me, even more because this is being directed by Tarsem, the director of The Cell and The Fall.
Tarsem marvel when it comes to cinematic eyecandy, but can the story deliver as well? Prepare to find out...

Needing a fix of oldschool thrash. What best than the Unholy Trinity of 1986:

Slayer - Reign in Blood
Kreator - Pleasure to Kill
Dark Angel - Darkness Descends

Yes, no Master of Puppets.

I don't think it belongs there either honestly. My favorite from the classic 1980s scene is the overlooked Spectrum of Death by Morbid Saint. I listen to it all the time.

This is probably their best moment. It was more melodic than I had expected, and with much more intensity and punch than most melodeath. I like.

I was hoping for a spectacular introduction of the Sea God and it looks like we got one. :void: Rip the island in half!

I wonder if it emerges to fight the Sea Horse, or if it's a reaction to the damage Guts is doing to its heart (or both).

Never been too fond of these guys, but at least they've got awesome album covers. Making an exploding horse into an artistic statement like this shows true class.

Last night I watched Martyrs... I have to admit, it had me from the get go, and kept me pretty enthralled. I was even fairly jumpy for the first 1/3 or so.  Its basically 2 movies... and fairly harsh/disturbing.  After it was done I couldn't help but think of The Passion of Joan of Arc.

One of the best horror movies since... well, ever. It stayed with me for a couple of days which is more than I can say for 99.9 % of the films in this genre. Sure kicks the living shit out of all the "torture porn" crappola. The thing it reminded me of the most was actually the plot behind the original Silent Hill game (people using extreme measures to archieve esoteric, quasi-religious goals).

I kinda enjoyed Tokyo Gore police. Not a masterpiece by any means, but it was nice to see Eihi Shiina again after Miike's Audition.

So what's the last movie I saw? Uuuuh, Holiday in the Sun with the Olsen twins! It's the sort of thing lying out on the Tube that you just put on when you're in a really daft mood and want to see the outskirts of extreme filmmaking. It was almost as shocking as Martyrs (trust me!), but not for the same reasons. Debut movie of Megan Fox btw.

I also had forgotten about the new Alice- Madness returns game that comes out in a few weeks. I'm semi interested in playing it and my g/f goes apeshit for anything Alice so its become a must buy for me.

Think I've said it before, but I'm not much of a gamer, partially because I'm Łberpicky about most things related to it. I've got little or no interest in most genres, and in the whole era of PS3 there's only been 2-3 titles that have made me consider buying a console. This new Alice game is certainly the most engrossing thing I've seen yet - I've been following updates and watched all trailers and gameplay videos that's been released so far and it looks absolutely sick. I played American McGee's Alice ten years ago, but even though the story was interesting I didn't think it fulfilled its potential (I was most interested in the Chris Vrenna soundtrack anyways). This looks like it's able to pull it through both visually as well as narratively. Hopefully it will also erase my memories of that Tim Burton fiasco from last year. It might not make me buy a PS3 this time either, but I'm glad there are still games that can engage me.

So this guy predicted the end back in 1994 too, eh? What was his explanation for that failure? Error in calculation?

Honestly, I wish the Rapture would hurry the hell up and just happen so I don't have to listen to these bible-thumping ghouls.

Well, it's nice to see people have a civilized discussion about this. I've seen the news-updates on Youtube which, predictably enough, turned the place into a fucking cesspool of trolling and douchbaggery.

Saw Scream 4 a couple of days ago. Iím not sure exactly what it is about this franchise that does it for me. The movies arenít scary, Iím never really creeped out by them, and there were several things in this latest installment I thought they shouldíve done differently, but I was surprised by how much I actually enjoyed it. Maybe itís because I had low expectations after the worthless third one, or maybe Iím just feeling nostalgic for the whole series because Scream was the first horror movie I watched in cinemas. No matter what reason it sure was more refreshing than 90% of all the crappola labeled ďhorrorĒ I see in cinemas nowdays. The movieís view on remakes was particularly fun. It also included one of the most extreme moral U-turns in a character Iíve seen in any movie lately, which Iím sure annoyed many, but I believe it was one of the filmís magic moments.

I can't imagine all the stuff he'll find down that thing's throat. :beast:

I'm thinking about what's the Sea God's digestive system is like. Must have gastric acid like floating lava and tapeworms the size of Akula-class submarines!  :troll:
