Pulpetti -

Lots has been said about Tarantino's newest film, and I don't pretend I have something entirely new to say about it. I enjoyed the film, but two weeks after seeing it I notice I don't really remember much about it. This is a totally different reaction from Reservoir Dogs (which, admittedly, I saw three times in a row) or Pulp Fiction or even Django , which I enjoyed a great deal, though I had given up on Tarantino after being bored watching Kill Bill (which I haven't rewatched). But I keep...

He waited for an opportunity, when the talk was going again, and Tom was telling an absurd story about badgers and their queer ways - then he slipped the Ring on. - The Lord of the Rings, book I, chapter VII Now that my Tolkien-reading project has gotten well into the Lord of the Rings, it's about time we got started on those saga expansions as well. Each of these saga quest posts will go through two adventures, incorporating the standalone scenarios that fit into the campaign; this post, for...

Gollum was tugging at Frodo's cloak and hissing with fear and impatience. Frodo and company leave Ithilien behind, and enter the Morgul Vale. Soon, they sight Minas Morgul: former fortress of Gondor turned abode of the Ring-wraiths. They're transfixed by the horror of the city, and drawn by the Ring, Frodo momentarily loses his mind and starts stumbling toward it, but Sam and Gollum stop him. The trio begin making their way up a path on the north side of the valley, but they're only a part of...

Antti Alanen: Film Diary -

Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood. Brad Pitt as Cliff Booth, Mike Moh as Bruce Lee. Like several of Quentin Tarantino's films, Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood is a revenge saga. Tarantino's films are not revenge tragedies because the avengers themselves do not perish, nor is there an epiphany about the futility of violence. In the cinema, revenge tragedy was a major approach in the Westerns typical for the 1950s. For instance in the golden year 1939 there were no revenge tragedies among its...

Tänään 15.8. on Turussa taiteiden yö. Itse en osallistu, kun olen lapsen kanssa kotona, mutta käväisin aiemmin päivällä kaupunginkirjaston pihalla katsomassa poistokirjojen myyntitapahtumaa. Tapahtumahan on aina suosittu ja ihmiset ostavat paljon halpoja kirjoja. Itselläni oli kiire ja kävin läpi vain englanninkieliset romaanit. Olisin ottanut Phil Hainingin toimittaman dekkariantologian Pulp Frictions ,  mutta sitten totesin, että jono on liian pitkä euron kirjaa varten...

Games Workshop is really into publishing lots of small games recently. I was most interested in Kill Team, but reviews I read online kept saying that it's no Shadespire, but it's still pretty good. As it happens, Shadespire had then just been superseded by Warhammer Underworlds: Nightvault , which is half the price of Kill Team and combines miniatures and deck-building. Clearly we had to try it. ** Even before playing the game, I was happy with my purchase. The box contains two warbands, and...

Frodo and Sam returned to their beds and lay there in silence resting for a little, while men bestirred themselves and the business of the day began. The hobbits and Gollum take their leave of Faramir and his men. Faramir's scouts report no movement anywhere, and the hobbits travel by day, heading south, toward the Morgul Vale and Gollum's secret way into Mordor. Ithilien is quite lovely, but things get more ominous as the trio get further south: it gets darker, the earth shakes and rumbles...

I've taken a first step toward actually playing some Blood Bowl this year: I've painted my team. I introduced my team earlier ; I'll be playing Dark Elves, with an all-positions roster. The models are a Wicked Elf gridiron team from Shadowforge Miniatures, via Eureka Miniatures . They're not the most elaborately detailed models, but I think they've got a lot of character and are just plain fun, and hey, this is Blood Bowl. Here they are! ** Also, a stands update! First of all, from Bad Squiddo...

Remember you are over the Edge of the Wild now, and in for all sorts of fun wherever you go." - The Hobbit, chapter VII In a slightly bizarre episode, someone got their hands on the Crossings of Poros AP as long ago as July 2017, and spoiled the accompanying flavor text , which strongly indicated that the next deluxe would be set in Dale. Finally, in December, the Wilds of Rhovanion deluxe expansion was announced, and promised for the first...

Frodo woke to find Faramir bending over him. Faramir's men have spotted Gollum fishing in the pool below the waterfall. Faramir asks Frodo what he would have them do with the creature, and Frodo asks them to not kill him. Instead, he helps Faramir's men capture Gollum, who is then brought before Faramir for questioning. The interrogation is fruitless, but Faramir extracts an oath from Gollum to never return to their refuge or speak of it to anyone. He then releases Gollum into Frodo's care, and...

It seemed to Sam that he had only dozed for a few minutes when he awoke to find that it was late afternoon and Faramir had come back. Faramir returns from leading the ambush to interrogate Frodo. Since Frodo has to explain himself somehow, he already admitted to being the halfling spoken of in the prophetic words that Boromir brought to Rivendell, but he tries to not reveal what Isildur's Bane is, or what his specific errand is. He learns from Faramir that Boromir is dead, because Faramir saw...
