The Host

An American military personnel dump chemicals into South Korea's Han River. Several years later, a creature emerges from the tainted waters and sinks its ravenous jaws into local residents. When the creature abducts their daughter, a vendor (Song Kang-ho - one of the best actor at the time) and his family decide that they are the only ones who can save her.

One of the last great films from the amazing early 2000s South Korean cinema wave. Stylish and funny, Bong Joon-ho is in top form with this one, which is more or less an homage to the giant monster B-films of the 1950s.

Director: Bong Joon-ho
Running time: 121 minutes
Released: 2006

Howl's Moving Castle

When a witch sees her happiness, she curses her to become old in a jealous rage. Ashamed and afraid, she flees to Howl's magic moving castle. Will Howl see her for who she really is?

Probably my favourite of the Studio Ghibli films. This is classic Hayao Miyazaki at its best. A total delight on every levels. Love it.

Adventures in Babysitting

When plans with her boyfriend fall through, high school senior Chris Parker (Elisabeth Shue) ends up babysitting the Anderson kids, Brad and Sara. What should be a quiet night in, however, turns into a series of ridiculous exploits, starting when they leave the house to pick up Chris' friend Brenda. Soon, Brad's buddy Daryl is involved, and the group must contend with car thieves, blues musicians and much more.

For some strange reasons I can't explain, I am still enjoying this film from producer Debra Hill, which is from a time when adolescent themed films were actually fun.

Director: Chris Columbus
Running time: 102 minutes
Released: 1987

The Clash of the Titans collection from Mattel remains one of the coolest ever! We own most of the figurines but the Kraken is high on our list of must own!



Tonka's GoBots collection were as cool as the Transformers but some figures were. This is one of them, Cy-kill.


Here's another Cobra (Space Cobra) figurine.


Looks like KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) released figurines years ago.

Dofus

Isaac recently got into the whole Dofus universe.

Originally Dofus was a Flash-based tactical turn-oriented massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) developed and published by Ankama Games. Its success has led to the marketing of spin-off products, such as books, art, comics and a movie.

LJN's Dungeons And Dragons collection was amazing. We still own some of the ones I had as a kid.


Remco released the best of the Masters of the Universe "clones", The Warlord was my favourite.


A very cool Figma of Nintendo's Metroid Samus was released a few years ago.


More cool dolls based on famous musical artists.


What a strange toy...
