New Norwegian Movie “Ragnarok” Gives Indiana Jones a Run for His Money?!

Check out this awesome looking trailer for the upcoming Norwegian adventure flick Ragnarok! This one looks like a ton of fun and has that old Amblin style Goonies type adventure thing going on. I wish there were more movies these days that could pull off this style of film. So far this one seems like it hits on all cylinders and has been described as an adventure that “Indiana Jones in his prime could never quite achieve”  by Twitch Film.

There’s no release date yet here in the USA but Magnolia pictures recently acquired the right so we shouldn’t have to wait to long. The plot sound like a great time too: ‘When the archaeologist Sigurd can’t settle on the myth about Ragnarok, the end of the world in Northern mythology, he decides to go on an expedition together with two colleges and his two kids. This adventure leads them to Finnmark in the Northern most part of Norway, and into “No mans land” between Russia and Norway, where no one has been in modern times. Old runes gets new meanings, when they unveil the truth. A truth bigger and more spectacular than you would have dreamed.” Be on the lookout for this one!

Norwegian Trolls: Back in a BIG way!!

I just heard about an amazing looking upcoming movie today called The Troll Hunter! It’s a Norwegian mockumentary in the vein of Cloverfield about a group of researchers set off to uncover an age old conspiracy that the government has been withholding the truth on the existence of trolls. Now that’s an original idea I say for a movie! Perhaps it just may be my personal fascination with trolls as you can see by my recent blog post about the NyForm trolls I collect. The funny thing is that so far the images I have seen of the trolls in this movie very closely resemble the NyForm!! So far this movie is looking amazing and the trolls are larger than life.

I know the whole false documentary thing is a little over played nowdays but I think  this movie has enough originality going for it with it’s subject matter so far to make it stand out on it’s own. As you know I’m a sucker for a good monster movie and though this one seems to bare alot in common with Cloverfield and maybe that 90’s movie Twister, these newly released clips have got me pretty dang excited!! Make sure to check out the other clips after the trailer-you’ll get a little more Troll in those…

More Norwegian Trolls Please!

Ever since I was a little kid I have had a fascination with Ny Form Trolls! No not the weird mongoloid looking  ones with the neon hair, the bad ass ones from Norway! Ny Forms  also have “real” hair as well but these ones look the way trolls were meant to. These amazing little sculptures hit the scene in 1964.

Here’s the history of how they came to be via the Trollshop.net:

“Somewhere in the middle of Norway, you will find a small and sparsely

populated mountain village called Tynset. It is located at the foot of a

five thousand feet high mountain Continue reading

Strange Happenings this week…

So there have been a couple strange things that have happened this week around the world, the first being the amazing Norwegian Vortex that was seen in the early hours of the morning on Dec 9th. This UFO in the sky hasn’t been explained yet but the government is calling it  the result of a possible unsuccessful missle launch. I’m calling some B.S. on that one. How many unsuccessful launches have there been? How many times have people seen something like this in the sky?! Pretty amazing if you ask me. It looks like a portal to another dimension. Hopefully this is the start of some serious questioning! I am in the midst of getting more info on this right now but check this out if you haven’t seen it already…
