There are people in our world who claim that newly produced movies that try to capture the genuine feeling of an old B-movie lacks the true spirit. If you’re one of them, Manborg is here to prove you so, so wrong! You will tumble around in joy and happiness like the rest of us to the gloriousness of this ridiculous masterpiece. This is not a movie that tries to mock its forerunners in a ironical and shallow way, this is a cyborg-action-scifi-epos that embraces all of its forerunners and hugs them so lovingly tight that they merge into each other and becomes the ultimate creation… MANBORG!
You may think that I’m exaggerating, but that’s only because you haven’t seen it yet.
So, please, do your self a magnificent favor and by your ticket → NOW! ←
”Here’s Johnny!” – some lines really get a hold of your head. Of course the line derives from one of the scenes in the film The Shining by Stanley Kubrick, where you can see a terrifying Jack Nicholson in the leading role. Notably enough, Jack Nicholson shares the same first name as his character, Jack Torrance. So does the actor Danny Lloyd, who plays the boy in the film. All right, maybe that detail’s just a coincidence. But the documentary Room 237, directed by Rodney Ascher, allows free scope for such details.
Last Tuesday, the screening of the documentary took place at Mejeriet, where you before the screening, also could enjoy a film quiz. Despite the delay due to technical problems with the screening, the relaxed feeling among the guests went on. The cozy feeling of being in your own lounge with candles on the tables did for sure soothe many guests waiting.
So was it worth the waiting? Without a doubt! After seeing the documentary, you almost get obsessed yourself of finding out what message Kubrick wanted to convey with his movie The Shining.

I need to confess, that text I wrote in the catalogue for Dredd…. I wrote that without having seen the film. But I’ve seen it now.
I was wrong on one account, the 3D effects aren’t the coolest and most innovative ever. They’re alright, but the film!?
HOLY FREAKIN MACARONIS & CHEESE BATMAN!!!!!!
DREDD 3D is the best comic book adaptation EVER! End of story!
It’s also one of the best action films of the last 20 years and reminds me of classics like Escape From New York and Robocop.
Unlike the Stallone-fiasco, this film is true to the comic and Wagner and Ezquerras vision and Karl Urban is brilliant as Dredd.
It’s been a long time since I left the cinema this excited and overjoyed!
Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, the directors of Resolution, immediately made lots of new friends when they arrived in Lund the other night.
But maybe they should have been more careful about who they decided to hang out with…
To experience silent film accompanied by live-music is probably the closest thing to magic in reality. Accompanied by the music of the Malmö-based band Death And Vanilla, the classical silent film Vampire by Carl Theodor Dreyer bewitched the visitors at the City Theatre yesterday. The suggestive music, specifically composed for this event, intensified the mystical feeling of the film.
The fact that the band performed under the scene awoke some contradictory feeling with oneself, which followed the mood of the event. Controlled fear in the form of horror-movies or suggestive music, can feel like a relief from the demands and fears in reality. If so, these events are something you will remember.
