  • All Christmas movies coming to streaming in 2020
    Streaming is the way to watch movies in 2020. Netflix, Prime Video, Disney Plus, HBO Now, Hulu – I could go on forever.

  • Movies to give you a summer vacation vibe
    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… Read More »Movies to give you a summer vacation vibe
  • The Half of It isn’t a love story
    “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 Laundromat – review
    The Laundromat was released on Netflix a week ago. A movie with a very promising plot, yet it lacks something. Read my review here. A movie starring Meryl Streep, Antonio Banderas and Gary Oldman sounds like an instant hit, one that can’t be bad. While in my opinion the story of the Panama Papers is… Read More »The Laundromat – review

  • Foreign movie: Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain
    If I would have to divide the movies I watch in categories sorted by language, about 95% would be English, 4% would be Dutch and the other 1% would be any other language.
