DCC Week: Let's talk about Sean Maguire

Ooooooh Yeah! We are gong to Dutch Comic Con 2017. And we can't wait. One of the guests is Sean Maguire. And because it's Dutch Comic Con Week, we decided to write about Sean today.  

 

I got to now Sean because he plays Robin Hood in Once Upon A Time. I started watching the series last year. And when Dutch Comic Con announced him, I didn't know him as Robin Hood yet.  He doesn't play in the first seasons. But of course I kept watching Once Upon A Time and suddenly there he was: Robin Hood! I loved the story line and became more and more excited that I would be able to see him at Dutch Comic Con. Now I'm up to date with OUAT (As far as Netflix allows me). And I can't wait for Dutch Comic Con!

DCC Week: The Man behind (the) "Face"

A few weeks ago Dutch Comic Con announced Dirk Benedict as a guest for their upcoming edition (25th-26th of March 2017 in Utrecht). Of course I was over the moon. I’m an 80’s kid (born in 1980), so I grew up with shows like Dukes of Hazzard, Airwolf, MacGyver and The A-Team. Those were the days, right? And now decades later Dutch Comic Con gives me the chance to actually meet a member of the A-Team, how great is that! Years ago I went to the taping of a Dutch late night show, where Dirk Benedict and Dwight Schultz (Face and Murdock in the A-Team) were guests. I thought that was pretty cool, but now I get the chance to really meet one of them. As part of our Dutch Comic Con Week, I thought it would be cool to tell you some more about the man behind (the) “Face”.

I don't feel at home in this world anymore

Well, I think a lot of people think this every now and then. A lot is happening in the world and sometimes you're just wondering: What happened? I can imagine the idea of not feeling 'at home' anymore sometimes. Bad things happen. Way too often. That's why I was intrigued when I saw a Netflix Orginal movie with the title I just Don't Feel at Home in this World Anymore. I wanted to watch a movie because I had some ironing to do. When I'm ironing, I love to watch a movie. Just ironing is boring and I love multitasking.  I checked the plot description, the genre (Crime/ Drama) and the rating on IMDb (7,1). Then I decided to watch this movie.

Movie review: The Way

Tom's (Martin Sheen) son Daniel (Emilio Estevez) is going to walk the Camino de Santiago. They don't have a very good relationship. Tom is an oculist and focuses on his work. His son Daniel doesn't get that at all. He's the opposite and wants to líve. He tells his dad: "You don't choose a life, dad. You live one." Then, he leaves to do the walk. Soon after that Tom receives a phone call. His son died at the beginning of the walk because of a storm. Tom is devastated and travels there, to pick up his son's body. But once he's there, Tom decides to do the walk himself. He wants to experience what his son was planning on doing. Inexperienced, mourning and untrained, Tom starts to walk the Camino de Santiago.. 

 

 I received this movie for Christmas 2016. I really wanted to see this. The Way is an adventure/ drama/ comedy movie. I watched it not long after I received the DVD in December. I loved the plot and I was very interested in how Tom's trip would be. I didn't know what to expect. But I like that. It's not an 'obvious' plot where I already think I know how it will end. Yeah, I suspected he would do the trip and that it would have a big impact on him. But I had no clue what I would see in the movie. I was also curious for the scenery. I've been to the Pyrenees myself a few times and it's really beautiful. But I've never done the Camino de Santiago. I've been to the Pyrenees in Andorra.
