Recently I've started (and finished) watching Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency. I watched the series on Netflix after hearing a lot of good things about it. I heard the plot was very surprising and you really have to keep your eyes open. So I decided to give it a go and see if it's something for me. Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency actually starts with Todd Brotzam (Elijah Wood), a bellboy. He discovers that a guest in the Penthouse and other men have been murdered. Soon after this, he meets Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett), who is investigating the murder. The two of them try to find out how the murder happened. Meanwhile, there's someone (Fiona Dourif) walking around determined to kill a guy named Dirk Gently.
Summer is over and it's time to do some more comic cons! There's a lot of choice in the upcoming months. We gathered a few nice events for you! Let us know in the comments: Which comic cons will you be visiting? We're not sure yet!
It's almost fall and that means more time for movies! Spending less time outside and more inside the house. or in the cinema of course ;). Here's an overview of some 2017 movies I'd absolutely love to see this year. Let me know in the comment what you will watch this year!
Well hello there. As you may or may not know I am a big fan of CBS' "The Big Bang Theory". And with the prequel show "Young Sheldon" coming up later this year, I thought it would be fun to talk about the actor behind the adult Sheldon, we all learned to love over the last decade. I am of course talking about Jim Parsons. Although Jim will not play the part of Sheldon in the spin-off (duh it's called "Young Sheldon", so Sheldon will be played by Iain Armitage), he will be involved as executive producer and as a narrator. So let's talk about the guy,who brought us: "Bazinga", "I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested" and "(knock,knock,knock) Penny, (knock,knock,knock) Penny, (knock,knock,knock) Penny". Let's talk about the one and only Jim Parsons!
It's time for another series talk! Let's talk about Girlboss. I've watched it recently.Even though I knew it had been canceled after just one season. Sophia is the main protagonist in Girlboss. She has a difficult relationship with her father and doesn't know exactly what she wants from life. She can't keep a job and takes nothing seriously. But she does have a passion for vintage fashion. One night she buys a cheap vintage jacket and discovers how much many she can earn by selling it on Ebay. And that's the moment where she realizes what she wants: A career in vintage fashion. Starting her own Ebay company.
Liv and I are big fans of The Vampire Diaries. We haven't been watching the show for years, No, we only started watching last year. We did a lot binge watching and we finalized watching all seasons within a year. Yeah, that's dedication, isn't it? Yup, that dedication led to a lot of sleep loss. I even dreamt about the life in Mystic Falls and being a vampire myself at some point. After seeing so much Vampire Diaries on our screen, we knew we had to attend Bloody Night Con! Especially since they had announced so many awesome guests already.
Like many of you, we were looking forward to meeting Ian Somerhalder a lot! In a choice between Damon and Stefan, I'll always choose Damon. It was just the first season, that I thought Elena & Stefan would be a better match. After that, it was always Damon. Yes, some of you may know I always root for the bad boy and although Damon does have a good heart, he IS a bad boy. So we both were very excited that our favorite Salvatore brother would be coming to Brussels! It's amazing to watch the series in such a short amount of time and being able to meet some of the main cast members so quickly.
And then there was that day, where everyone is afraid of: The day that Ian canceled. Oh yes the horror. We were afraid of this day to come ever since we heard that his wife was pregnant. When
it comes to convention I am always afraid that one of the guests cancels, but with this news we were almost sure that the day would come....and it came. Of course, we were devastated. But
KLZ had some good news immediately: Paul Wesley would be his replacement. Even though I like the character of Damon more, I was happy with the replacement. He's just as a big as a guest. A great
name for a con! I was very happy with Paul as the replacement guest. Although Damon is my favorite Salvatore brother and Stefan can be annoyingly good sometimes, I still like his
character and I was very curious to see how Paul was like in real life. So kudos for the girls of KLZ Events for their efforts!
With the new IT movie being released, we thought it would be a good moment to talk about some scary clowns! Because, hey, Pennywise is not the only scary one to be seen in a movie! We're sharing a few of our favorites with you today (besides Pennywise). Who's your favorite scary clown? Here's 3 of the scary clowns that I like!
There are a lot of great series out there at the moment and that means a lot of material for our Series Talks. Today we are talking about a British show, that quickly gained a high position in my personal list of favorites. It's an epic gangster story set in Birmingham (UK) in the aftermath of World War I. Today we are talking about: "Peaky Blinders".
Last month we unboxed a try out of Geek Fuel. This month, we received the August box! The August box was the first XL box. And I was curious to see what's in it! Let's take a look. You can watch the video, or check out what's in the box below!
Just a few more days and then it's time for Comic Con Amsterdam! We went last year and met some awesome guests. We met Sean Astin, James Marsters, Natalia Tena, Robert Englund and Lance Henriksen! If you want to read more about Comic Con Amsterdam 2016, check out our overview. Unfortunately we won't be able to go to Comic Con Amsterdam this year. But: We still want to discuss the guest list with you! They have some pretty amazing guests.
Lennie James has been spoken of a lot. If you're a fan of The Walking Dead, you've probably been cheering when you saw Morgan and Rick reunite. That was a long wanted scene by the fans. However. Not everything is as good as you hope for. It seemed like Morgan had changed. It made the reunion a bit bittersweet. We had all hoped for at least one mini happy ending in the Walking Dead right? But then again, the Walking Dead is still running, so anything can and probably will happen!
Lennie James plays the role of Morgan in The Walking Dead. In season 1, he and Rick meet. But they part ways. Seasons later, Morgan is back! I was thrilled to see him back in The Walking Dead. But at the same time, I had to get used to his changed personality. It wasn't like we knew Morgan that well in season 1. And since then, I have moments that I really like Morgan. And other moments he just irritates me haha. But in all those cases I have to say: Lennie is excellent. He's an awesome actor. I completely agree. I mean, I am not an agressive person myself and I totally get the whole pacifist thingy he has got going on. But my God you are in the middle of a Zombie Apocalypse and as if the whole Walker problem is not enough; you and your group are being attacked by a raging psychopath and his army. Come on Morgan, pull yourself together and grow a pair (like Father Gabriel)! But yeah Lennie does a great job in portraying Morgan. I also loved his role in Snatch, which is one of my favourite movies.
There have been made quite some tv series and movies about prisons. There are also many documentaries of course. Let's talk today about some of these TV series. I'm curious to hear what your favorites are and what you didn't like. Prison series are still gaining more popularity: Prison Break has started again, Orange is the New Black is a huge success and new series keep coming.
I'll kick off today by starting to talk about my favorites: Oz and Wentworth. Oz is a men's prison, Wentworth is a women's prison. It's a coincidence that I have both a men's and women's prison in my favorites. It's just that I love both series.
Lumiere cinema Maastricht (The Netherlands) had announced they would be doing Scorsese weeks! Sig was over the moon. He really likes the Scorsese movies he has seen, so he definitely wanted to go. Lumiere showed a few movies for a couple of weeks. If you're not sure who Scorcese is: Martin Scorsese is an American director, producer, and screenwriter. He's born on November 17th, 1942. Central themes in his movies are often the Sicilian - American identity, mafia, crime, conflict, loyalty. Scorsese directed movies like Taxi Driver, Goodfellas, Gangs of New York and the Wolf of Wall Street. He often casts the same actors in his movies. A lot of his movies have the same actors: Robert DeNiro. But also Leonardo DiCaprio, Victor Argo, Harry Northup and Harvey Keitel.
Oh yeahhh!!!! It's time for our Wolfcon vlog part 2! We went to WolfCon 3.0 in Amsterdam in the last weekend of July. WolfCon is a fan convention about the MTV series: Teen Wolf. It is organized by The Con Factory and held at the Park Plaza Amsterdam Airport Hotel. The guestlist consisted of: Ian Bohen (Peter Hale), Max Carver (Aiden), Casey Deidrick (Halwyn), Ryan Kelley (Jordan Parrish), Gideon Emery (Deucalion), Charlie Carver (Ethan) and Froy Gutierrez (Nolan). We attended a lot of the panels and normally we always try to make a compilation video of the panels at conventions like these, but we were only allowed to film small bits of the panels. In the week before the convention, we sent an email to Patricia from The Con Factory, asking if we could film because we usually make some videos about the panels. Patricia said it was prohibited, but filming some small bits should not be a problem. We did film some short bits and tried to mix them into our photo and vlog video overview of WolfCon 3.0. This is part 2!
If you're a big fan of the Originals (like us) you know who Charles Michael Davis is. Or at least you'll know it when I say: ' Marcellus' or ' Marcel Gerard'. Yeah! We met him at Bloody Night Con. Initially Bloody night Con Europe had invited Daniel Gillies as a guest. Oh my, Liv and I were thrilled by that. We were and we were hell-bent on letting everybody around us know how thrilled we were. Especially Tristan and Sigmund. We sang our little Elijah song for months.We both bought a photo op. I really like the character of Elijah in the Originals. The way he acts and is dressed. He's unique! But, enough about Elijah. Because Daniel canceled! And that's where Charles came in the picture.
So Carola and I went to WolfCon 3.0 in Amsterdam in the last weekend of July. WolfCon is a fan convention about the MTV series: Teen Wolf. It is organized by The Con Factory and held at the Park Plaza Amsterdam Airport Hotel.

Patricia said it was prohibited, but filming some small bits should not be a problem. We did film some short bits and tried to mix them into our photo and vlog video overview of WolfCon 3.0. This is part 1 and consists of our shenanigans on Friday (registration day) and Saturday (first convention day).
