Some time ago we talked about a show, that quickly made its way into my top favorite series of the decade. I am of course taking about "Atypical". The series revolves around Sam Gardner, an 18-year-old boy, who decides he wants a girlfriend. Sounds pretty normal right? Well that is not exactly the case. Sam is on the spectrum, which means he has autism spectrum disorder. This means Sam doesn't have the same look on life as a standard 18-year-old boy. Although he is pretty high functioning, it is difficult for Sam to understand the world around him. His honesty is disarming and can be very harsh. Just read our Series Tip about "Atypical" for more information. So I've already established, I love "Atypical" and you might also know we love Quotes. Over the last couple of years, we have written quite some articles with our favorite movie and series quotes. So why not combine these two things? Get ready for some of the best "Atypical" quotes. Mind you I said some, because the show is a goldmine for quote lovers.
Today I was watching some movies & series again and in our inbox I also noticed an email about a short film called "Reina". I decided to watch it today and write about it. The film kicks off with Seth (Sergio Castillo) and Michelle (Kat Peña) going on a date. They're in a restaurant having a drink and Seth keeps on talking about Reina. He can't stop talking about her, about how much he misses her. Michelle, clearly frustrated, tries to show some empathy but eventually just wants to leave. Well, who would love to go on a date with a guy who keeps rumbling about another girl?
I'm huge Jason Statham fan, which means I own almost every movie on DVD that he plays in (still got a few to go to buy). And I watch all the new movies in the cinema. And so, it was decided that I would watch "The Meg" in the cinema. I didn't know a lot about the movie except that it's a shark movie. I didn't really have high expectations. I was expecting just another shark movie.
Once in a while you find a little gem between the plenitude of things to watch on Netflix. Last week, when we were talking about the series we watch, Desirée talked about a series she binged. When she talked about it, I immediately knew I should watch it. Well I did...and I binged. I watched all the episodes of season 1 within the 24 hours. I am talking about: "Atypical". I absolutely loved it and I when I watched the last episode, I just wanted to watch more. Luckily, season 2 of this lovely show will premiere on September 7th....and that is today...Whoohoo!
We have a new unboxing for you! We received the Wootbox again and September's theme was Magic. I was very curious about this box and secretly hoped for a charmed item... Want to know what was in there? Check out the video or read our update below!
It's time for another 'spotlight article' and today we are going to talk about one of the greatest comedians of all time (at least in my humble opinion).He was born in Courbevoie, a suburb of Paris, at the start of the Great War (1914-1918) and is considered one of the most influential French actors of all time. I am, of course, talking about the amazing Louis de Funès. Watching his movies, takes me back to my childhood; especially the "Gendarmes" movies and "The Adventures of Rabbi Jacobi". Last week, one of the "Gendarmes" movies, was on TV and that sparked a flame for an article, long overdue. Let's talk about Louis de Funès".
I was excited to see a new season of Orange is the New Black on Netflix again! Even though I have to admit that I didn't really like the last season (season 5 about the riot) that much. But was I so ready for new season! In season 5, I just felt like the riot took too long and things went too slow. Somehow the riot didn't feel harsh to me. I kept feeling unrealistic and strange.
In July, we had a great weekend a Wolfcon in Amsterdam! Dan Cardoso was hosting Wolfcon, just like he did last year. Dan is a great host, during the moments of waiting Dan is there with Karaoke, a performance of Beyoncé's Single Ladies or great play lists. As you know, we also like to give you guys some background on conventions, to show who's involved and give some insights. That why we also asked Dan for an interview. We're very happy that he had time time to talk. We discussed how he became involved at Wolfcon, what ambitions are, which movies he likes to watch and more. Are you ready to see the interview?
