We have seen documentaries about everything by now. Nature as seen through the eyes of David Attenborough in Planet Earth, fraud cases in The Tinder Swindler and Tiger King and prize-winning music documentaries about Amy Winehouse and Peter Jackson’s The Beatles: Get Back that was recently released. But there’s an entirely different genre that gives us, the people, insight into movies. Ranging from the making-of to a complete history of film, here’s a list of the most interesting, influential documentaries to watch if you love movies.
There are two things I can cross off of my bucket list: attending a film premiere and watching a film in the most beautiful cinema in the world. And I never thought I would actually achieve those so soon. Okay, I had visited a film premiere before but I don’t see any rules about crossing […]
What I thought would be a completely cheesy teen show, turned out to be a great insight into problems teens might have. About Young Royals Young Royals is a Swedish Netflix Original and was released internationally on 1 July 2021. In January 2021, the cast was announced. The first teaser trailer was released on 19 […]
I know a lot of people grew up with Star Wars’ Skywalker Saga. I did not. No idea why though, because I did see pretty much ever other film franchise. But things have changed: I’ve seen the entire Skywalker Saga! I’ve had some time to think about it and have come up with a verdict: […]
Let’s take a look at Disney Plus Star. How does it work and which films and series on the new streaming platform are worthwhile?
Welcome in 2021! Let’s hope we’ll get to see some awesome movies in the cinema this year – something I truly missed in 2020. I normally don’t make any New Year’s Resolutions, but there’s one exception this year: my blog. There are a few new exciting things I can’t wait to tell you about! Expanding […]
Streaming is the way to watch movies in 2020. Netflix, Prime Video, Disney Plus, HBO Now, Hulu – I could go on forever. A lot of these streaming services are constantly coming up with new releases, which (to be honest) make 2020 a whole lot better. Christmas is coming up and the content is good. […]
Sherlock Holmes is no stranger to us. Whether it’s from the books or renditions from people like Benedict Cumberbatch and Robert Downey Jr. But Enola derserves that same spotlight! At the end of last month, a new rendition came out: Enola Holmes. But what does this movielover think of the newest Netflix Original? Read all […]
The Netherlands as a country has some great things. Good healthcare, easy public transport and excellent education. But there’s one thing I don’t like about our country: the movies. Overview The thing with ‘our’ movies is that they’re all alike. There’s X different genres and that’s about it. And while some of them might be […]
2020 has been a weird year thus far. No one could have imagined what world we would live in right now. Normally, I’d go on vacation in the summer, probably Italy once again. But that’s not going to happen. No sunny beach, beautiful countryside or the best pasta I’ve ever had. So that means one […]
“In case you haven’t guessed: this is not a love story.” That line is said somewhere along the start of Netflix’ new movie, The Half of It. And I was like “Yeah, sure”. The movie has everything a typical teen rom-com has: a love triangle, a jock, bullies, a pretty girl, a nerd and a […]
As I’ve mentioned before, I like reading books. A large part of the books I buy have already been made into movies, but this one was on the waiting list. It was inevitable that it would become a movie because of the popularity of the book. Just before the movie came out, I re-read the […]
My dad loved watching movies. Most of them just to have something to watch, but some of them because they held a special place in his heart. Today’s a special day because it’s his 55th birthday – the first birthday without him being around. My dad passed away at the end of last year, after […]
