We went to Weekend of Hell again! This time (Spring 2019) Weekend of Hell was organized in the same venue & weekend as German Comic Con. We decided to visit both. On Saturday, we kicked off with Weekend of Hell.
February went by soooooo fast. It was March before we knew it! Where January and February are usually a bit boring, March is really the opposite. A busy month! (And we love it!). So let's talk about the movies of march!
"The power of three will set us free!" I heard it numerous times when I was younger in Charmed. It might have been my very first series addiction. My first DVD 'collection'. My favorite birthday present was a season of Charmed on DVD. I loved that series so much! Watching it until the middle of the night, always curious to see the next episode. And even after a few years of attending comic cons, I didn't expect I would be able to meet actresses or actors from Charmed. Luckily enough, Dutch Comic Con, invited Shannen Doherty! Hopefully, this will be the start of meeting all the Charmed ones :). Same here, I used to tape every episode of Charmed when it was on TV in the Netherlands. I always drew the triquetra on every piece of paper I could find. I too, own the complete "Charmed" collection on DVD. I remember the first time we had diner at Sigmund and Carola's place...we walked in and the first thing that caught my eye was the "Charmed" collection. It turned out to be Carola's and at that moment I knew 'this was the beginning of a beautiful friendship'. When Dutch Comic Con announced Shannen Doherty, I was over the moon. Not only am I a huge fan of "Charmed", I also used to be a huge fan of "Beverly Hills 90210" and "Little House on the Prairie" is one of my 'guilty pleasures'.
This weekend it's time for Weekend of Hell in Dortmund and we are so looking forward to it. We have been attending Weekend of Hell for many years now and we always have a blast. This particular Weekend of Hell took place in the Turbinenhallen in Oberhausen and it had an amazing guestlist. What to think of names, like: David Labrava ("Sons of Anarchy"), Mark Boone Jr. ("Sons of Anarchy", "Memento"), Michael Madsen ("Kill Bill", "Reservoir Dogs", "Donnie Brasco", "The Hateful Eight"), Brad Dourif ("Child's Play", "One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest", "Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers"), Amanda Bearse ("Married with Children", "Fright Night"), Corey Feldman ("Stand by Me", "The Lost Boys", "Gremlins", "The Goonies"), IronE Singleton ( "The Walking Dead"), Sarah Butler ("I Spit on your Grave"), Ken Foree ("Dawn of the Dead", "The Devil's Rejects", Rob Zombie's "Halloween"), Tony Todd ("Candyman", "The Crow") and Costas Mandylor ("Saw")...to name a few. And then there was William Baldwin, who I knew for "Backdraft", "Sliver" and "Flatliners". I especially loved his performance on "Backdraft", so I knew I wanted to meet him. And now with his new Netflix show "Northern Rescue", I thought it was time to talk some more about Mr. Baldwin.
Recently, we reviewed the short film The Tattooist. The director of this movie, Michael Wong, also directed the short film the Story of 90 Coins! This short film is about love. A boy is head over heels in love with a girl. The girl has her doubts. The boy asks for 90 days. 90 days to prove his intentions. To convince her of his love. For each day, he gives her a coin and a message. If after 90 days she's convinced, they will use the money to marry. If she's not, they will have some last drinks together and part their ways.
I opened Netflix and a new series starring Idris Elba caught my attention. I think Idris is an awesome actor! I loved him in Luther especially. Now it's time for another series, he is starring in Turn Up Charlie.
Today is April 1st or April Fools Day. Normally this is a day of (practical) jokes, hoaxes and pranks. Now, we at Conmose Central are always in for some fun, but today we are going to do something different. We are not going to prank you, but we do have a fun article for you. Today we have got some celebrity facts for you (we love fun facts!). Some of these facts, however, are so curious that you would think it's an April Fool's joke...
We are excited to have another short film review for you again! This time, it's the short film 'The Tattooist.' And I have to admit: The title is already enough for me to be interested so I was excited to find this in our inbox. I'm absolutely a tattoo lover. I have 5 and hope to get many more. If I still dare of course after watching the Tattooist. We will see... I'm going to hit the play button right now!
After way too many months without a comic con, it was finally time again for Dutch Comic Con! The last con we attended, actually was Dutch Comic Con Winter 2018. You can imagine how excited (Excited is an understatement!) we were for Dutch Comic Con! Liv and I hopped on the train on Saturday morning (WAY to early, but hey, comic con is worth it!) and went to Utrecht for Heroes Dutch Comic Con Spring Edition 2019!
