The UFO

If you go through life and never get a chance to board a real flying saucer, here’s the next best thing: Sweden’s UFO – a hotel in the woods built to look like an extraterrestrial hooptie (street for sweet ride).

The UFO

Named simply The UFO, this flippin’ cool hotel is situated near Sweden’s unpolluted Lule River and can house two adults and two kids for £374 a night. Two things: That converts to an otherworldly $539.81 U.S. fun bucks. Secondly, I don’t care how much you love your kids, this is too expensive to let rug rats come along. Best to take two other adults and split the bill four ways: $134+ each. Add booze and get your probe on.

The UFO

The UFO was built by Tree Hotel, a company that is world-recognized and awarded for their tree house designs (it already won the Swedish Grand Tourism Prize), like The Blue Cone, The Dragonfly and The Bird’s Nest, which looks like a real bird’s nest – they served hatched eggs for breakfast. (This is where Mothra stays when she’s in town.)

Beamship

Lastly, you have to climb a long stair step ladder to get into The UFO. I would’ve thought for that price they could beam you up. And the bed sheets are printed with the Constellation. Now you can find Uranus in the comfort of your own pajamas.

Day-glo Ogre

Legend of Ogre

When one thinks of an ogre, it’s usually visualized as something that looks like a WWE wrestler after he’s lived in a garbage landfill for years, while wearing a diaper made out of a bear. It might also have one or fewer eyes and a Fred Flintstone club for hitting diaper-providing bears.

The ogre, though, in Legend of Ogre (aka, Kijo Densetsu/2003) is a young Japanese girl with hot pink long hair, a gray complexion and dressed in pajamas three sizes too big. Worse, the story about the punk rock ogre unleashing hell is as lame as the fake wig she wears.

Two high school girls and their female teacher go to a village out in the woods to study regional folklore. Their cell phones don’t work that far into the woods. Right outta the gate – BIG problems. Upon arriving, a screamy old woman runs up to them and speaking louder than normal, starts yelling “Ominous, ominous!” I don’t know what that means. Staying in a vacant house the girls snoop around and open a storehouse, which unleashes unimaginable horrors and…uh, yeah – not even close.

Kijo Densetsu

The pink-haired woman was locked up (or “imprisoned”) in the storehouse, even though she saved the village from a red dragon (told, not shown) many moons ago. Now that she’s free to model her pajamas, there’s much ominous-ing to get caught up on.

The teacher dies, as did my patience for something cool to happen. (I actually fell into a deeper sleep twice while napping through the tedious non-action.) Legend of Ogre was made with one of those consumer digital video cameras, so it looks like your neighbor filmed it. From the half-baked storyline to the day-glo hair, everyone needs to go back in the storehouse and reflect on what they’ve done.
