TV Show Review: Gilmore Girls – A Year in the Life

Hey Guys!
I finally had time to check out what ever Gilmore Girls fan had been dreaming of for 9 years: a sequel. In 2016 Netflix released 4 90 minutes long episodes full of Stars Hollow fun! Let’s see whether they are good…
(Just to warn you, there will be spoilers ahead!)

 

The Plot:
Rory is struggling a bit with her career, constantly switching between New York, Stars Hollow and London.
In the mean time Emily has to deal with the great loss the family suffered. Richard passed away and she lost her purpose.
As the relationship between them is still not the best, Lorelai is not the biggest help. She’s got her own problems to think about, concerning her private life with Luke as well as her professional life at the Dragonfly Inn. Continue reading

Book vs. Movie: Kill Your Friends

Hey guys!
It’s time for another Book vs. Movie post. Kill your Friends was written by one of my favourite writers, John Niven in 2008. His dark comedy crime story was adapted in 2015, starring Nicholas Hoult in the main role as Steven Stelfox.

 

 

The Plot:
Steven Stelfox is an up and coming A&R agent in the Britpop music industry. However, the guy is more than hungry for success and perfectly willing to sell his own grandmother to get what he wants…

 

The Rating:
I remember when I read the novel a few years ago I immediately went out to grab every other book by John Niven I could get hold of. The way he writes is simply brilliant. The story is dark, gripping, evil and still hysterically funny at times. You can’t help but hate the main character yet it’s like a car crash: you just can’t look away. Both satirical and somewhat realistic, it is fresh and far more enjoyable version of American Psycho, that has some meaning behind it. Continue reading

Movie Mania: Peter and Wendy

Hey guys!
Today’s movie is a new take on a classic tale. I’m sure you’re all familiar with the story of Peter Pan, but this little TV film transports it to the here and now.

 

The Plot:
Lucy is a teenager with a severe heart condition. While she is in hospital waiting for a risky surgery that might save her life, she read Peter Pan. Soon she falls asleep and dreams of going to Neverland…

 

The Rating:
I know, there are tons of Peter Pan movies out, so why is this one worth checking out? Continue reading

Old vs. New: Evil Dead

Hey guys!
Today I have something very interesting for you. I’m sure most of you have watched one or maybe several movies/TV shows of the Evil Dead franchise. Since the three original films are one of my favourite horror flicks in general I was sceptical about the new one that came out in 2013. Is it as good as the old stuff?

 

The Plot:
Your basic horror movie scheme: A group of friends is alone in the woods, having the time of their lives in some cabin they rented. Soon before they encounter something evil that lives there too…

 

Old vs. New:


Sam Raimi’s 1981 movie had been a revolutionary step when it comes to horror films. I remember my mother telling me that back in the The Evil Dead was just about the toughest thing out there. No wonder such a huge franchise and fan base built around it! Continue reading

3 Thoughts on Bob’s Burgers Season 7

Hey guys!
Today I want to talk about one of my favourite animated TV shows: Bob’s Burgers. To celebrate the season finale, which will air soon, I’ll share my thoughts on this season!

 

Thought #1 – The Episode Titles:
This time, they really excelled themselves! Many of the episode titles are parodies of famous movies. Some of those gems are: Large Brother, Where Fart Thou?, The Last Gingerbreadhouse on the Left, The Grand Mama-Pest Hotel and many more.
To be honest, I was almost more excited to find out the newest episode title, than hear what the episode is actually about. I simply adore these titles and it once more shows with how much love for details Bob’s Burgers is made. Continue reading
