Read our thoughts about movies, actors, dvds, cinema etc.
Sometimes we make an overview of the movies we watched.
The House That Jack Built. The first time I heard about this movie, was in Lumiere cinema in Maastricht. I saw the trailer (I think I was going to watch a David Lynch movie). The trailer caught my interest right away: This one was going on my watch list. Seeing that the movie was directed by Lars Von Trier gave me mixed feelings. I have seen a couple of Lars Von Trier movies (Antichrist, Melancholia, the Idiots) and I wasn't super enthusiastic about them. But, I decided to stick to the feeling the trailer gave me and watch the movie in the cinema. It took me a while to go and see it (Blaming it on the snow!). But now I finally did.
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!
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.
