The main character is not super hero or has any abnormal skill or power, but using technology, he kind of wraps himself with machines that able him to shoot missiles, fly and have inhuman strength. He did not make it successful the first time, but eventually he made it work. However, there is an old man who also seeks for power and finds another old version of 'iron man'. However, the old man takes the main character's man made heart to operate the machine. Luckily, he finds another heart and survives. The old version is much bigger and stronger, but in the end, old man dies probably because main character was smarter. I think that is why movie is called iron man since machines are around him and refer machine as iron. I watched it from the channel Telecine, and I could not watch it from the start, but i watched the major part of movie. Therefore, I do not know why the main character has man made heart instead of real one and why he started to build "ironman". I like the movie because it looked a little bit more realistic that it is not like some super power story.

I found this movie when i was just randomly changing channels. This movie is one of those mummy series. Its story is that there is a emperor in china who is preserved as mummy and one general of china tries to resurrect him. There is a group of people whose destiny is to stop emperor from gaining full power. These people have immortality so that they can be guardian forever. They meets with a family whose members are all good at fighting and gather strength to stop the emperor and the general who resurrected the emperor. This emperor some how has some super power. He can breath fire, turn in to beast like dragon, freeze things, and he won't die by normal methods like shooting. There is special dagger that is passed down on generations of immortal guardians. However, even though they are immortal, they do not have any super powers like emperor. Because of this, the family and guardians have hard time to stop emperor. Emperor's true objective is to resurrect his soldiers and rule the whole world. In the end, emperor is killed by the family. It was interesting that even though it was mummy movie, only mummy was dragon emperor and he was wrapped up with some kinda of sculpture all the time. After he gained more power and could have a form of human and raised soldiers, all the soldiers were made of mud so the only mummy in the movie was emperor and he changed into beast many times, so most of the time there was not many mummy scenes. I liked this one over other mummy movies because other movies usually have the evil mummy which can control bugs. It was better to watch movie without so many bug infections.

This is TV series Merlin and i watched until season 1. Its setting is past and it is about magic. Merlin is a boy who can use magic, but the kingdom he is living in banned the magic. Any wizard will be hanged. Even with this restraint, he sometimes uses magic to save his friends and other people because otherwise they would have gotten hurt. Each episode has different problems and for each episode Merlin solves them using magic. Most problem is because of a ancient priest who tries to kill Merlin, but in the last episode Merlin kills the priest. I did not like the main character Merlin because i think he lacks flexibility and courage compared to his friend. His friend is son of King and Merlin works as a servant but in private places they are friends. I liked the friend Arthur because even though he can not use magic he saves many people.

This is a series, but i watched it equivalent amount of time as movie length. This is more or less comedy and basic plots are from original Robin Hood. The main character's name is Robin who is in charge of a village. However, he was not in the village because he was in war. Meanwhile, the bad sheriff slips in and manage village. This sheriff was crucial to people having very high taxes. After Robin comes back, he tries to stop this, but he was expelled and he became outlaw. This is how he started living in forest helping poor people. The name Robin Hood is from soldier's Joke that he should be called Robin wood because he lived in forest. Because it is series I did not watch ending, but I think that it was very funny. Even the bad people were funny and their british accent was amusing.
This movie tells the past of Wolverine. He was born as mutant along with his brother. A group of mutants started missions that were not possible for normal humans. His brother was stronger and he liked to fight. They have conflict about it and Wolverine leaves. That made the group to scatter and his brother was very angry about it. His brother started to kill other mutants in the group and attacked even his own brother. Wolverine could not win, so he did a operation to make him stronger. That made his claws become impossible to be broken and Wolverine win against his brother. This is how he had claws that were shown in other movies(X-man 1,2,3). I was not as interested because i did not watch other X-man movies, but it was some what fun to watch. Interesting part is that there is a korean actor in this movie. His character was also mutant that was good at shooting. I was very interested while watching, but it was sad that this character died in early of the movie. This character died by wolverine because this mutant was ordered to pursue wolverine.
This movie is about knights who had to fight for Rome even though this is not their country. These nights were forced to fight against Rome for 15 years instead of being killed. After 15 years, they were supposed to get freed, but Rome did not let them go free. They had to fight 2 more fights that were almost suicide missions. During battles, more of them died. In the end the ones survived live happy. I think that it was a good movie because i think they represented the life in medieval well enough and it was amusing to watch. There were many battle scenes that was spectacular and I think it well showed the knights` spirit and how they put importance on honor and glory. They did not fear death. Interesting part is that one of them think of Rome as great country and actually fight for Rome. His name is Arthur and was the leader of this guerilla group. He was influenced by a teacher who taught him that every one is equal. In the movie, there were many part that I could find him acting according to this philosophy. For example, even though he was under Rome which was heavily influenced by religion, he did not hesitate to punish priests who were corrupted or crazy.

I learned about this band when i learned to play 'sweet child of mine' with a guitar. This song became one of my favorite song. I don't like or hate other songs from the band. Band members are Ron Thal, DJ Ashba, Richard Fortus, Tommy Stinson, Frank Ferrer, Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman. The band released total 10 albums until now.
