The Troll Hunter

Today I went to see the movie “The Troll Hunter” In the theaters in Bergen.

I have to say that I was looking forward for someone to make something like this! I have been a big fan of fairytales and stuff like that since I were a kid! The first story I could remember was the story of the The Three Billy-Goats Gruff that my father read to me as a child. (I even played the middle goat at the school christmas parties when I were little XD)

But over time I think a lot of people have forgotten all the stuff that is here in Norway! We have a lot of scarier stuff than a lot of other contries!

We have the giant trolls of course, that varies from one head to three and the size of a gate and to the size of mountains. And I have to say that our trolls are a lot better than what movies like Troll offers! Those are nothing against our ones!

<— From the Movie Troll. out of all the movies to follow, this was the best one…

A Norwegian forest troll, if you see how small the trees looks, imagine just how big he is…——>

 

I grew up with a lot of magical creatures around me! The stories tells of Hulders, Nøkken, Nisser and draugen. We have a lot of great creatures for stories, but it is so long since there really was much of it in modern movies and things like that! But I hope that with the new movie a lot of old creatures will start to appear again!

And even if the Troll’s in the movie is scary, Nøkken(Neck) and Draugrs is twice as scary! I think I don’t know of anyone that haven’t been scared by the picture of Nøkken! It is iconic for scary in Norway! (And condoms…)

This creature have haunted my nightmares since I were a kid! You don’t see much of him, but it is scary! Nøkken just wants to pull you to your death! And if you don’t come to him, he will pretend to be a horse and if you sit on him, he will jump into the bog with you.

The Draugr is the same as a undead. There are two versions, one that roams the sea to warn of dangers or take boats to their deaths, or the ones on land, that was often the corpses of kings and people with great richess that remained to keep their treasures from others.

If you see the Draugr at sea, there is not much chance to survive, as they will come after you.

Well, the movie was great! I love the animation of the Trolls, and Otto Jespersen is awsome as the hunter! And to have three great comedians in one movie that also had Gubrandsdalen and trolls? How can you get better than that?!

I won’t spoil the movie, I’ll just say that you should watch it if it comes to a theater near you =)

And for National Novel Writing Month I am writing a story based on Norwegian farytales and stories, so it will be really fun to get it done in time! ^.^

Anime Review: Shiki ep 1 – First blood


In a small Japanese village away from the world a summer will leave its mark on the villagers forever, as a plague seems to haunt them.  A dear one dies, and in the next days their families dies one after the other.

But a teenager newly moved into the village from the big city starts to suspect something else than a sickness, as a girl that has stalked him since he moved there stills follows him, even after her death.

Above the village there is a castle inhabited by a family that never comes out into the light, and as the corpse covered summer comes to a end, the battle for survival begins. Who will be alive and who will be dead in the end?

Kuroshitsuji musical 2 – the most beautiful DEATH in the world DVD

A little late update I know, but been busy with studies lately XD

I got the DVD for the musical!! Yay!

The case it was in, it is really nice and I love the color ^.^ There is also a folder paper wrapped around it with a picture of Sebastian and Ciel on the back =)

The back and front cover is origianl art from Yana Toboso, and I love both pictures! I love the one with the shinigamies the most XD Alan and Eric is ok, but I love how Grell is hanging over William’s shoulder ^.^ I am a fan girl to the end!

I bought the limited press version, so I got a disc with the musical, and one with behind the stage stuff, it is all really fun! =) And I also got a one page comic about how to act at the opera I think XD a few fliers with “that guy that should be locked away” and a small book with the information about actors and other stuff =)

I really love the musical! The story is good (almost made me cry T.T) and the music makes me put it on to listen over and over again! I think Sebastian is mean here thou… but the shinigamies are great! They really steals the show! Grell in both a dress and sexy night lingeries XD William just being cool, Ronald being a overhyper youth and the two new characters Alan and Eric being all emo and bringing plot to this.

If you can get a hold of it you should watch it! A lot of the songs are probably out on youtube already and also subbed ^.^

Here is my favorite songs from this thing ^.^

The first song, and it really sets the mood for the rest. I love the song, but why do I always think that it is fun with Sebastian pretending to be Dracula XD?

I want to learn that damned dance and dance it before people who will just look at me and think: what the fuck XD I still think that they are really mean to Grell in this one… poor guy… I wonder if he is waiting for someone to invent help groups for bullying at the job?

I love this song! My favorite! And it is so short T.T Sebastian is mean…
