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. Or actually, less than 1%. Sometimes a Belgian movie gets slipped in, sometimes a French movie and that’s about it. Foreign movies might be really good! I want to broaden my movie genre a bit and a… Read More »Foreign movie: Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain

Oscars 2019: Recap

I stayed up last night, watching the Oscars. I was awake from 2:00 until 5:30, even though I had to go the school on Monday morning. The things I do for the Oscars, oh my god. Anyhow, I didn’t regret it for a bit. I watched people getting their deserved Oscar, but also the ones that I didn’t want to win to big (Ahum, Bohemian Rhapsody and Black Panther, sorry).… Read More »Oscars 2019: Recap

An honest review of Bohemian Rhapsody

A few days ago, I finally watched Bohemian Rhapsody after hearing lots of great things about it. I did like it, but to be honest, I think it’s overrated. Let me explain why.   The storyBohemian Rhapsody tells the story of Freddie Mercury and Queen. From the moment he “meets” the band, untill the best achievement of the band: Live Aid in 1985. Freddie getting engaged, Freddie getting sick, the… Read More »An honest review of Bohemian Rhapsody

2018 recap

This year has been pretty huge for me. I finished my first year in higher education, I got my propedeuse (got all of my EC’s in the first year), went a few days to Paris, a few days to Bologna and a week to the Veluwe. And I started this – my blog. The year is almost over, which means I have to recap. Not only my personal year, but also… Read More »2018 recap
