Or as it's also called Dark Kingdom: The Dragon King, Ring of the Nibelungs or Sword of Xanten.

At first glance it might look like a Lord of the Ring ripoff but it has absolutely nothing to do with J.R.R Tolkien fantasy. In fact: It's based on the Saga of the Völsungs, which is a Icelandic medieval saga... No wait! It's based on the Götterdämmerung, a German opera play that is in turn based on several stories including the Saga of the Völsungs... what?

Heroes of Might and Magic has always been a puzzling franchise to me and the fifth game in the series is no exception. Heroes of Might and Magic V is a turn based game that goes into a turn based (very turn based) combat system when you meet enemies in similar fashion to the Total War series.

Minotaur is a film about, what else... The Minotaur. The film does a lot of things right with the movies, explains the premise really well and the premise itself is also very appealing, but for being a thriller I do have some thoughts on it's execution.

Mystery Men is a satire of superheroes. The greatest superhero ever known Captain Amazing has a dozen sponsors who sponsor his crime fighting. He has a PR-manager and his own limousine. Sadly he is a little too effective at eradicating crime in his city so he decides to free a terrifying super villain known as Casanova Frankenstein. Casanova manages to capture Cpt. Amazing and it's up to a handful of wannabe superheroes to try to rescue him!

Defendor is a movie about Arthur Poppington (played by Woody Harrelson) who dresses up into a superhero costume and fights crime. Unlike other superhero movies he's not "super" since he lacks any supernatural powers other than cheat gadgets and his gadgets consists mostly of marbles which he throws at enemies, angry wasps and a bat. While Arthur is very skilled at fighting (unlike other non-superhero movies), the movie still retains a realistic focus on his struggles: Meaning that he gets badly beat up during some points of the movie.

Dragon Age is one of the newest releases of Bioware and EA games. EA games have turned their evil eye upon the usually very talented Bioware team to demand that they make a cheap EA game title for them. Will Bioware succumb to EA's evil plan or will they triumph over the biggest and most evil game company that ever cursed the earth?
