Last year we met Leslie David Baker at Comic Con Los Angeles. As a huge fan of The Office US, I was thrilled that Comic Con Los Angeles had announced some actors and actresses from the series and that there was going to be an Office reunion panel! As guests, there were Leslie David Baker, Creed Bratton, Kate Flannery, Phyllis Smith, Oscar Núñez and Brian Baumgartner. How awesome is that??
Today we will tell you all about meeting Leslie David Baker and that story... It starts with the one that got away: Ryan Hurst.
It's June already and time to look back on the movies we watched in May! So many!!!
What did you watch?
Last week the last season of "The 100" premiered on Netflix, so we thought it was time to share our story about meeting Marie Avgeropoulos, who plays the role of Octavia Blake in this immensely popular show. We met Marie at the Heroes Dutch Comic Con Winter Edition last year. We both watch "The 100", so we were very excited when she was announced. For me, Octavia is one of the best characters in the show. At first she is so annoying, but she grows on you and all of a sudden she is one of your favorite characters. She is fierce, brave and strong. Before we went to Comic Con (aahhh good times) I also watched some other things Marie was in (like the movie "Tracers"). I knew I wanted to do something with Marie, but I did not know what (autograph, selfie or photo op) yet. This was the first time that Dutch Comic Con would work with signing slots (the actors has several signing slots instead of signing all day long), so I wanted to see how that worked first. But let me tell you something more about Miss Avgeropoulos first.
It's time for another short film spotlight! This time we watched Assistance (2020). In Assistance, two brothers struggle to come to terms with their father's illness. It's very hard for them. They struggle knowing what to do and how to react. Watch the trailer of the film below!
If you would have told me 5 years ago that I would see Elijah woods 3 (!!!) times, I wouldn't believe you. And I mean actually 3 times. In real life. Not in the movies (Because then, the Lord of the Rings movies would be enough hahaha). At different comic cons. 3 times! And can you believe it, we didn't even write a meeting Elijah Woods yet. Well, that can not be happening! Time for change. Let us tell you all about meeting the amazing Elijah Woods!
Alice is lonely and self-isolated. She has a lot of worries and she tries to keep her demons out, whatever it takes. She's having a hard time. Even at work, they notice. Then one day, her fathers ex wife contacts her. Her father, Wilhelm, is suffering from a terminal illness. His ex wife will not take care of him and the full responsibility lies on Alice.
Just like in March... We've been spending a lot of time at home! For me, that means more movie marathons! So I watched quite a lot of movies again. Let's take a look!
I'm watching a lot of movies lately and I thought I'd elect a few for you guys as a movie tip.
I love discovering new movies and I was happy to be surprised by some recently. And it's often hard to pick a new movie to watch. Even though I have a lot of DVDs. Having a lot of DVDs is like having a lot of clothes. You can look at your closet and think: I have nothing to wear. I can look at all my DVDs and think: I've got nothing to watch. Making choices is hard! I get that. I sometimes feel like it's hard to choose. So I'll help you a bit! Lets take a look at my movie tips for you!
Last March we went on a trip to England...and in the week we came back our world turned upside down and we have been staying home ever since (because of the Covid-19 pandemic). We were back just in time and now we look back on that trip as a gift, because it was most probably the first and last holiday for 2020. One of the reasons we went to the UK was Comic Con Liverpool by Monopoly events. A few years ago, I made a trip to Manchester and visited For The Love of Horror, which was also hosted by Monopoly Events and I had an amazing time. So I was very eager to go to another one of their events and the best of all was that we would be able to go there together. We became even more excited (excited is an understatement) when we took a look at the guestlist. What to think of Elijah Wood, David Harbour, Ryan Hurst, Melissa Joan Hart and Lori Petty (just to name a few). I got even more excited when I saw Comic Con Liverpool would be the host of an "American Pie" reunion, with Thomas Ian Nicholas (Kevin), Chris Owen (Sherman), Shannon Elizabeth (Nadia) and Chris Klein (Oz). Unfortunately Tara Reid (Vicky) had to cancel, but nonetheless it was a great line-up. We would be at Comic Con Liverpool on Friday and Saturday, but the guests of "American Pie" would not be attending on Friday. On Saturday we had a jam packed day and I knew it was going to be difficult to catch one of them, but we were going to try. Before we went to England, I had been watching the four original "American Pie" movies and especially because Chris Klein would be a guest I also watched "Day Zero" and "Election". I always loved Chris Klein's character Oz in the "American Pie" movies, so I really wanted to meet him...
Last year, we already told you a lot about our trip to Los Angeles. We visited Los Angeles Comic Con on Saturday and Sunday. We waited for hours and hours to catch a glimpse of the cast of Zombieland: Double Tap at the movie premiere. And we visited the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Hollywood Museum, and Universal Studios Hollywood. On our Instagram account, you might have seen already that we also did the Warner Bros Studio Tour. Something we had been looking forward to ever since we booked our trip to Los Angeles. And today we will show you how much fun we had during the tour!
