I watched Star Wars for the first time

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: Star Wars has meant a lot for the development of today’s films and everybody should… Read More »I watched Star Wars for the first time

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 movie has everything a typical teen rom-com has: a love triangle, a jock, bullies, a pretty girl, a nerd and a supportive teacher. But no, it’s not a typical teen rom-com. Hear me out why. Ellie… Read More »The Half of It isn’t a love story

Book vs movie: All the Bright Places

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 book. Here’s what I thought of both. Book I bought the book without knowing what… Read More »Book vs movie: All the Bright Places

Isn’t It Romantic is cliché but I love it

Last Thursday, Isn’t It Romantic was added on Netflix. I was looking forward to this movie so I couldn’t wait to finally watch it. Not-so-typical (but in reality, really typical) young woman wakes up in a rom-com world, even though she hates rom-coms. She might be falling in love for the hot guy but she forgets about her best friend. So Rebel Wilson has her first movie in which she… Read More »Isn’t It Romantic is cliché but I love it

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

6 years later: I watched Twilight again

When I had just started high school, I came across Twilight. Together with a few friends, we were quite big fans. I never had posters in my room – until then. Taylor Lautner was the hottest person I’ve ever seen. One time, we had to do a little project at school. You had to read a book and remake the story with photos. So me and my friends read Breaking… Read More »6 years later: I watched Twilight again

Movies that made me cry – Part 1

I can’t help it, but I’m a pretty emotional girl. The smallest things can make me cry (Lately there have been a few tears when watching baby elephants, for instance). Movies obviously make me cry too sometimes. I think the first movie that made me cry, was actually Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Since then there have been lots and lots more movies where I shed a little tear.… Read More »Movies that made me cry – Part 1

Book VS. movie: Love, Simon

SPOILERS AHEAD As you might, or might not know, I also like to read books. Most of the books I own are made into movies, which means that I like to compare them. This blogpost will compare my newest book, Simon vs. The homosapiens agenda, with Love, Simon. Don’t worry, it’s the same story, the title’s just changed! In my very first blogpost, I’ve briefly talked about this movie. I… Read More »Book VS. movie: Love, Simon
