We're full on with series talks lately! Oh yeah, we love watching a good TV series and even better: We love writing about it for you. After finishing La Casa De Papel, I hád to find something new. I was glad to see Netflix had some new episodes of Suits online and some of Gotham. Then, something very colorful caught my eye: Pose. I watched the trailer and it looked extravagant. Time to start watching!
Yes! It's that time of the year again! Next month it's time for the first Dutch Comic Con of 2019. Four years ago the first edition of Dutch Comic Con took place in the Jaarbeurshallen in Utrecht. In 2016 they decided that only one edition a year would not be enough so, next to the March/Spring Edition, they added a second November/Winter Edition. Now it's 2019 and next month (in the weekend of March 23-24), Dutch Comic Con will be back in Utrecht for the 8th edition. That also means that we will attend Dutch Comic Con for the 8th time, because we will be there! We are already looking forward to it a lot,so we thought it would be time to give you our first Dutch Comic Con March 2019 update article. As you may or may not know Dutch Comic Con already announced three amazing Movie- and TV guests and in this article we will tell you more about them...Let's talk about the guests of Dutch Comic Con March 2019!
I have a new addiction! And it's called La Casa De Papel (English title on Netflix: Money Heist). I had heard SO MUCH about this series. Everyone was so positive. But somehow I never follow that immediately. I waited and waited. And I'm always full of preconceptions (I don't like robbery movies). Yeah, it took me a while to figure out I had to watch La Casa De Papel. But when I did... Oh boy I was addicted instantly!
Over the last month or so, we have had some very busy weekends. Though I love going out and doing things, I also love watching movies and since a day consists of only 24 hours (and I do need my sleep), that can be difficult sometimes. But luckily this weekend I had some spare time and I decided to watch one of the new Netflix movies. After some browsing I stumbled upon "Close", starring Noomi Rapace. This 2019 Netflix movie is written and directed by Vicky Jewson. The story seemed to be a bit standard, but hey sometimes standard is nice too. I really like Rapace as an actress, so I decided to give it a go...
Remember Happy Death Day? I do. Or well, to be honest, I remember the trailer. I never watched the movie. I know it's about a girl waking up every day at the same day. She gets killed, and she wake up again. And it's the same day. Over and over again. The movie was on my watch list until I heard someone talking about it on TV recently explaining the plot and ending. Well, that's that. I don't have to watch it soon anymore. (no worries, I won't spoil it for you!). Movies with a repeating day, or timeline, are not new. Just think of 50 First Dates and Groundhog Day. Okay, in 50 first dates the day doesn't repeat itself, the girl just always forgets the day before. But you get the idea. I'm not particularly fond of the concept, but I don't hate it either. It depends how well the story around it is.
Here at Conmose, we watch quite some movies. Because we LOVE movies. We don't write a review about every movie we watch, but we do want to keep you in the loop! In this monthly overview, you'll get to see how many movies we watched, which ones and how much we (dis) liked them!
We have got a new Series Tip/Talk for you! You must have heard about it by now...Netflix has got a new hit series and it's called "Sex Education". I heard a lot of great things about it, but did not find the time to watch it at first. But then I found out that Gillian Anderson (mostly known for her role as Dana Scully in "The X-Files") played one of the lead roles. I waited for the first free moment I had and installed myself in front of the TV to watch. Last week, Netflix announced a second season is in the making, so it is about time to talk about: "Sex Education"!
Winter is coming? Nooooo comic con season is coming! Yeah. We can't wait for spring & comic cons to start again. And we have started to prepare already. We have huge plans for this year and we have started to plan for comic cons as well. We already know for sure that we will attend Dutch Comic Con in March. And for that, we have the best outfit ever! So lovers of carnival, comic cons and cosplay.... we present to you: Our comic con/ festival onesie!
I think it was December 2018 that I saw the trailer for the Favourite. I liked it instantly. I think Emma Stone & Rachel Weisz are great and the trailer made me laugh. So I decided that I wanted to see this movie in the cinema. Later, at the end of December I watched the Lobster. When I looked up the movie on Imdb, I saw that the director of the Lobster, was also the director of the Favourite. And since I really liked the Lobster, this got me more excited about the Favourite. In January, I watched even more movies of director Yorgos Lanthimos (The Killing of a Sacred Deer, Dogtooth, Alps). So was sooooo ready for the Favourite. I went to Lumiere in Maastricht to see the movie.
A few years ago we went to Walker Stalker Con in London. Walker Stalker Con is a convention for fans of the TV show "The Walking Dead" (and its spin off "Fear The Walking Dead). We had a great time at the convention, but we were only attending one day. It was impossible to see and do everything. The convention had an amazing guestlist (if you are a fan of the show), with names like: Andrew Lincoln (Rick), Norman Reedus (Daryl), Melissa McBride (Carol), Josh McDermitt (Eugene), Michael Cudlitz (Abraham), Chandler Riggs (Carl), Christian Serratos (Rosita), Alanna Masterson (Tara), Ross Marquand (Aaron), Sonequa Martin- Green (Sasha), John Bernthal (Shane), Sarah Wayne Callies (Lori), David Morrissey (The Governor) and Chad L. Coleman (Tyreese). Because of this amazing line-up, the bunch of people and the limited time, there was only so much we could do. Chad L. Coleman plays the role of Tyreese in "The Walking Dead" and he is one of my favorite characters, but we missed him in London (I did get a picture). He also plays in "The Wire" and later on Chad also got a role in "Arrow" (as Tobias Church), which made me regret even more that I did not get to meet him in London. Luckily last year Weekend of Hell Dortmund announced him for the November Edition. I was so happy to get another chance to meet him.
