We write about conventions, meeting actors, movies, series, merchandise, getting autographs & photo ops and everything else related!
It's time for another series tip! We've already gathered quite a few. But it will never be enough haha. There are so many series nowadays. It's hard to pick one to watch. And we're always here to help! Just check out the overview of our series tips and you'll definitely find something you'll like! Today we are discussing: Gotham.
Why Gotham? Because it's FACTS week this week on Conmose. We're going to FACTS next weekend and we will meet Ben McKenzie and Morena Baccarin. Both known for Gotham!
Gotham is about the years before Batman's arrival. You get to see a younger version of James Gordon and Bruce Wayne.
Finally! This is the moment. This weekend, Liv and I will finally meet Kristian Nairn. Best known for his role in Game of Thrones as Hodor!
We were so excited when Amsterdam Comic Con announced him as a guest in 2016. But then he cancelled! And we got to hear that on the day of the convention. So you can imagine our happiness when FACTS announced Kristian as a guest.
So.. Let's talk about Hodor again! Below you can see our vlog from August 2016.
We went to Dutch Comic Con today!! Yeah! As usual we'll write a lot about our adventures (There were a LOT of adventures!). But since we have so many events planned in the upcoming weeks, we'll first give you the pictures! All stories will follow later. Bottom line: It was AWESOME.
As you all might know already.. We're going to Dutch Comic Con on Sunday March 26th! In the post you can follow the conversations Liv & I have the day prior to the event!
We will keep chatting in the post, even though it's live already. up until the event.
Ooooooh Yeah! We are gong to Dutch Comic Con 2017. And we can't wait. One of the guests is Sean Maguire. And because it's Dutch Comic Con Week, we decided to write about Sean today.
I got to now Sean because he plays Robin Hood in Once Upon A Time. I started watching the series last year. And when Dutch Comic Con announced him, I didn't know him as Robin Hood yet. He doesn't play in the first seasons. But of course I kept watching Once Upon A Time and suddenly there he was: Robin Hood! I loved the story line and became more and more excited that I would be able to see him at Dutch Comic Con. Now I'm up to date with OUAT (As far as Netflix allows me). And I can't wait for Dutch Comic Con!
A few weeks ago Dutch Comic Con announced Dirk Benedict as a guest for their upcoming edition (25th-26th of March 2017 in Utrecht). Of course I was over the moon. I’m an 80’s kid (born in 1980), so I grew up with shows like Dukes of Hazzard, Airwolf, MacGyver and The A-Team. Those were the days, right? And now decades later Dutch Comic Con gives me the chance to actually meet a member of the A-Team, how great is that! Years ago I went to the taping of a Dutch late night show, where Dirk Benedict and Dwight Schultz (Face and Murdock in the A-Team) were guests. I thought that was pretty cool, but now I get the chance to really meet one of them. As part of our Dutch Comic Con Week, I thought it would be cool to tell you some more about the man behind (the) “Face”.
In our "Insights" articles we go behind the scenes of the convention life. We talk to people who organize conventions, sell merchandise or DVDs, Cosplayers, Costume Groups and more like this. In earlier articles in the series we already talked to: KLZ Events (organizing conventions and fan events), Zeno Pictures (distributing films),Dirtees (t-shirts and merchandise), Breezeeweezy Cosplay (Cosplay) , Ghostbusters Dutch Division (Costume Group) and Dutch Garrison (Star Wars Costume Group). Today, we're talking about Jurassic Park Netherlands!
Jurassic Park Netherlands started in 2013 and was founded by two Jurassic Park fans, who were already active in the Dutch cosplay scene (Steampunk & Harry Potter). In the beginning there were just a few people, but through the years, the group grew to currently 17 members. A lot of different people, from nurse to baker and even people with a film making background. A place for every JP fan! It all started in the Netherlands, but the group also has members in Belgium and contacts all over Europe and the USA.
It's time for another Unboxing! Since July, last year, we have been umboxing the BamBox and we loved doing that. Last January, however, we received our last BamBox and we decided it was time for a new subscription box. I started searching for an alternative and soon I stumbled upon Lootcrate. Lootcrate Inc. was founded in 2012 and in the last 5 years it grew out to be a worldwide leader in fan subscription boxes. There are several different crates to choose from. I chose the normal Lootcrate, but you can also choose Lootcrate DX, LootAnime, LootGaming, LootPets and LootWear. There are also partner crates and limited edition crates you can choose. Interested check out the Lootcrate website for more information. Well let's talk about my first Lootcrate. You may think isn't it a bit late to talk about the February Edition and you are right, but there was some delay in the delivering of my crate, so I only just received it.
Oh yeah! The conventions season has started again! We will have a busy agenda the upcoming weeks. Of course we'd like to share our plans with you already. We have, at this moment, planned to go to 4 comic cons: Dutch Comic Con, FACTS, Weekend of Hell and Bloody Night Con! Well, let's talk conventions!
Well, I think a lot of people think this every now and then. A lot is happening in the world and sometimes you're just wondering: What happened? I can imagine the idea of not feeling 'at home' anymore sometimes. Bad things happen. Way too often. That's why I was intrigued when I saw a Netflix Orginal movie with the title I just Don't Feel at Home in this World Anymore. I wanted to watch a movie because I had some ironing to do. When I'm ironing, I love to watch a movie. Just ironing is boring and I love multitasking. I checked the plot description, the genre (Crime/ Drama) and the rating on IMDb (7,1). Then I decided to watch this movie.
Today we've got a new Series Tip for you. The article is written by a guest-writer and we are very excited about it. As you may know, the team of Conmose.com consists of three active members: Sigmund, Carola and I (Liv). But if you take a look at some of the pictures on our website and social media, you can see that there are four of us. This week our guest writer is no one less than Tristan! (Sigmund's brother, Carola's brother in law and my partner). He wanted to write about one of his favorite series, being: Cosmos: a Space Time Odyssey. So without further ado: Heeeerrrrrreeeee's Tristan!
It’s time for another challenge and since you all seemed to like our “Movie Imitations” article, we have a part two for you! Just like in our first part we went out and made some pictures. Each picture represents a famous movie and we challenge you to “Guess the Movie!”
Tom's (Martin Sheen) son Daniel (Emilio Estevez) is going to walk the Camino de Santiago. They don't have a very good relationship. Tom is an oculist and focuses on his work. His son Daniel doesn't get that at all. He's the opposite and wants to líve. He tells his dad: "You don't choose a life, dad. You live one." Then, he leaves to do the walk. Soon after that Tom receives a phone call. His son died at the beginning of the walk because of a storm. Tom is devastated and travels there, to pick up his son's body. But once he's there, Tom decides to do the walk himself. He wants to experience what his son was planning on doing. Inexperienced, mourning and untrained, Tom starts to walk the Camino de Santiago..
I received this movie for Christmas 2016. I really wanted to see this. The Way is an adventure/ drama/ comedy movie. I watched it not long after I received the DVD in December. I loved the plot and I was very interested in how Tom's trip would be. I didn't know what to expect. But I like that. It's not an 'obvious' plot where I already think I know how it will end. Yeah, I suspected he would do the trip and that it would have a big impact on him. But I had no clue what I would see in the movie. I was also curious for the scenery. I've been to the Pyrenees myself a few times and it's really beautiful. But I've never done the Camino de Santiago. I've been to the Pyrenees in Andorra.
The convention season is about to start for us and today we are going to talk about FACTS – The Spring Edition (April 1st and 2nd in Flanders Expo). We have been visiting FACTS for a few years now and we have and we always have an amazing time.
It's time for another series tip! We've already gathered quite a few. But it will never be enough haha. There are so many series nowadays. It's hard to pick one to watch. And we're always here to help! Just check out the overview of our series tips and you'll definitely find something you'll like! Today we are discussing: Luther.
It was actually Sig's idea to start watching Luther. He had heard some good things about the series. At first I was hesitant; I don't always like police series. It's hard to find the right one. I do like police series. But I usually watch series like CSI once in a while, instead of actually following each episode. But there are some police series I really love. Earlier on, I already discussed Southland with you. Love that one! And if you want to classify the Wire as a police series, I loved that series as well.
Luther is a crime/ drama series about detective chief inspector John Luther. For John, his job is always number one. He's very dedicated. He's brilliant and always has genius ways to find criminals. But he also finds himself in difficult situations. He isn't exactly the paragon of a decent detective. He means well, but he often crosses the line. He's obsessive and violent sometimes. Of course this gets him into trouble more often than he would like.
In 2014, Sig and I went on holiday to Florida. It was a great trip! We traveled around and visited multiple cities. We started in Miami Beach and traveled to Titusville (Because the Kennedy Space Centre is located near), followed by Orlando, Fort Myers and Key West. It was a trip to never forget!
A while ago, I already wrote about our experience at Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios. That was great, but mainly focused on the Halloween Haunted Houses. So we decided to go to Universal Studios two days later, to check out the theme park in daylight! We chose to visit Universal Studios Florida (there are different Universal Studios theme parks).
When we entered the park, I wanted to get an express pass at first. Because at Halloween Horror Nights, we experienced very long waiting times (Because of that we weren't able to do all haunted houses). But we decided to walk around for a bit first to check out if was just as busy. And we were lucky it wasn't! We didn't need an express pass and we were able to almost all the attractions! And, as you can see, we also had time enough to go on a picture with Marge and Homer. How cool i that?
When I opened Netflix earlier this week, the first thing I saw was a picture of the Netflix Original documentary: The White Helmets. A week ago this documentary won the Oscar for ""Best Documentary Short". The White Helmets is a 2016 documentary about the Syria Civil Defense (a.k.a The White Helmets); a group of volunteers that operates in parts of rebel controlled Syria. In the ongoing Civil War in Syria, the bombing of civilian targets is the order of the day. The White Helmets are among the first ones to respond to these bombings and they risk their lives to rescue people from the rubble. The documentary is directed by Orlando von Einsiedel. Among his earlier work is the 2012 documentary Aisha's Song (about a underpriviliged Kenyan girl named Aisha) and the 2014 documentary Virunga (about the protection of the last of the mountain gorillas).
Time goes by so fast! It's March and time to look back on the movies we watched in February!
I have a new series tip for you today! Are in doubt which series to watch next? Are you experiencing the after series dip, after finishing a series? No worries! We're here for you with a lot of series tips!
Today, I want to talk about How to Get Away With Murder. I had heard about this series before. And one day I decided to watch. I watched two episodes, but didn't really feel like watching any more. So I stopped.
But after I watched Once Upon A Time I experienced the well known after series dip. I didn't know what to watch. Or even which genre I wanted to watch. Believe me: My series 'to watch'- list is long! But you can't just start watching a series. It has to be the right moment.
I watched a new episode of The 100 of Netflix. But that only kept me busy for about an hour. I needed something new. And since I had tried How to Get Away With Murder already, I decided to give it another go until I had figured out what else to watch.
Little did I know, it was going to get me hooked this time! I watched an episode. And other one. And another one. And now I can say I'm really watching How to Get Away With Murder.
Main protagonist is AnnaLise Keating, a brilliant defense professor. The series follows her and her group of law students. They become twisted in a murder plot. And the only question becomes: How to get away with murder?
