It’s time for another list! Today I have something very special for you. There are some movies that are actually made in English but feature also other languages. This happens rather rarely – which is shame! It really adds to the authenticity of the film!
And the actors get to show one more talent 😉
Quentin Tarantino is one of my all-time favourite directors. His movies have so much to offer and Inglorious Basterds in particular is a gem. This film actually features four different languages and I really appreciate it that instead of doing it all in English subtitles were used. The characters speak German, English, French and (very bad) Italian! It was really cool for me to watch it as I live in a German-speaking country and also got a chance to refresh my French lessons!
Today I bring you my recent discovery. I found out that Amazon Prime is free for one year if you are a student. That means I have tons of new stuff to check out! My first pick was Sneaky Pete. Is this Amazon production worth checking out?
What is it about?
Marius just got out of jail and is in a hell lot of trouble. What easier way is there to get away than by assuming a different identity? And Marius has the perfect one at hand: his cell mate has wonderful grandparents. He just hasn’t seen them in twenty years. So they wouldn’t notice Marius posing as Pete, right? Continue reading
I haven’t written a list in ages, so it’s definitely time to tackle a new subject. Todays post will be about my favourite TV shows that involve magic!
#4 – The Worst Witch:
I have only a faint memory of this one, but I really loved it when I was a kid. The best way to describe this show is as a funny version of Harry Potter with a female Neville in the leading role. Mildred Hubble is a young witch who attends a magic school. But – you guess it – she’s having quite a lot of trouble!
While doing research for this post I found out that a re-boot of The Worst Witch aired this year, Bella Ramsay is starring as Mildred (you might know her as Lyanna Mormont). I need to check it out asap! Continue reading
This year one of my favourite British TV shows returned with another season: Broadchurch! After two years David Tennant and Olivia Colman are back.
Thought #1 – The Cast:
I’ve said this before (basically ever single time I talk about Broadchurch), but I’d like to point out once more how talented all these actors are. David Tennant is perfect as grumpy Detective (and I love his accent), Olivia Colman is just so relatable and her performance is always bound to get me. But also other cast members from past seasons like Jodie Whittaker get a chance to prove their talent. Furthermore, we get some new actors that blend in perfectly! Continue reading
Hello my lovely readers!
Today I want to talk about another 2017 TV show that really fascinated me. To be honest, 13 Reasons Why got right under my skin!
What is it about?
Hannah Baker is dead. She committed suicide. While everybody is still shaken by what has happened, Clay Jensen receives a shoe box full of cassettes. On these tapes, Hannah Baker recorded 13 reasons that led her to kill herself…
Why should you check it out?
I remember reading the book back in the day when it first came out. It was a thrilling novel, simply impossible to put down. So I was pretty excited when Netflix announced the adaptation.
As there is only one book, but 13 episodes (each of them an hour-long) some things feel a little stretched out. But I quickly got over that first little irritation. If you allow yourself to fully take in this show, it will get under your skin and send shivers down your spine. Continue reading
Today I want to share one of my favourite TV shows that started in 2017! As anthologies are popular at the moment Ryan Murphy (writer for American Horror Story) created this new show.
What is it about?
Being an anthology, Feud will have a different story each season, however, the main topic – you may have guessed it – are famous feuds.
The first season deals with the rivalry between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford sparked by the movie What Ever Happened to Baby Jane, in which they co-starred. So we follow their professional careers, their private lives and learn about (and from) stars of that time.
The second season, which will premier in 2018, is about Prince Charles and Princess Diana – so that is bound to be interesting too! Continue reading
