Trailers You Might Have Missed … (Oct 7-13)

So, I only had a little bit of time at work this week, which was probably a good thing considering the past month, but it really hit me that I only have a bit more than two weeks left there. I learned a lot and really liked my team, but it’s also exciting to start something new. I have already discussed future plans with some of you and fingers crossed that one of my bigger life goals will maybe come true. But you are here for trailers, so here they are:

Movies

Dolittle

I mean … it’s very different from the Dr. Dolittle I grew up with, but it’s Downey with an amazing voice cast to accompany him. Count me in!

Jungle Cruise

Emily is such a badass!

Charlie’s Angels

It’s not what I would have wanted exactly just looking at the trailer, but I am still pumped for this. (and probably alone at that)

Onward

The best thing was Pratt and Holland watching the trailer and doing a live reaction video to it.

Klaus

I guess we really are getting closer and closer to Christmas.

Earthquake Bird

Colour me intrigued!

Judy & Punch

For some reason, I find that movie really scary.

Love is Blind

I am like 99% sure that I have shared this trailer a long time ago already …

The Courier

I just want William Mosely back on the Royals, like that show was never cancelled, and not in weird movies where I don’t think he fits in.

TV Shows

Truth be Told

Apple TV is going to have some really intense and good-looking programs.

Daybreak

I like teens and kids in the apocalypse. That was basically the premise of my childhood favourite show.

Prank Encounters

I am not the right person for these kind of shows.

Vikings (Season 6)

I can’t believe this will be the final season. The show has accompanied me for so long!? But I love how they pretend Lagertha is getting older by giving her white hair, while the rest of her body just looks exactly the same.

The Little Mermaid (Live)

Technically not a TV show, but since they are making a live action movie as well, I didn’t want y’all to confuse it with this musical live version they are going to put on.

Did you see anything you like? Which of the shows/movies above would you watch? Let’s chat!

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (Sept 30 – Oct 6)

I know I JUST posted the monthly wrap-up, but that doesn’t mean we are going to skip the Sunday-trailer-post. No, no, no. It just means two posts in rapid succession.

Movies

Birds of Prey

I always like the DC trailers, but unfortunately I don’t always like the DC movies.

6 Underground

HOW WAS THIS MADE FOR NETFLIX!? I feel like the action is definitely meant for a massive movie theatre screen. (And I say that with all due respect and love for Netflix)

Free Guy

Not a trailer, but TAIKA AND RYAN AND JODIE AND JOEY!

The Gentlemen

This is something I can actually get behind. The cast, the gangster vibes, the humour, I am into it.

The Personal History of David Copperfield

My first thoughts still always go to the magician … which this is just definitely not about.

Richard Jewell

Not particularly my thing.

The Cat and the Moon

I don’t know what to do with this movie?

I Lost My Body

So intense and weird, but great animation! Also, it definitely gives off Addam’s Family vibes.

TV Shows

His Dark Materials

I feel like we don’t actually need more info on this show, but that it would be better to just let us watch it.

Reprisal

SIGN. ME. UP!

The Unlisted

I feel like this looks too much like they are all acting rather than experiencing this.

Marvel’s Runaways (Season 3)

I am SO pumped!!!

Lost in Space (Season 2)

I actually really enjoyed the first season, so I am looking forward to more.

The Hook Up Plan (Season 2)

YAAAAS! I wasn’t sure if they were going to continue it.

Devs

I have no idea what this is about.

Outlander (Season 5)

I mean … they definitely haven’t aged enough for the years that have passed, but it’s looking good.

Manifest (Season 2)

If you don’t want a recap of S1, then don’t watch this.

Riverdale (Season 4)

I can’t even watch this with a straight face.

The Expanse (Season 4)

I cannot speak to this show, as I do not watch it.

Insatiable (Season 2)

Why does this even exist?

September 2019 Wrap-Up

I wish I had all the exciting stuff to share with you in this monthly wrap-up, but the truth of things is that I was just really busy with work. Don’t get me wrong, my work is cool and exciting, but it also takes up a lot of time and energy, so there’s just no reading or watching updates that are worth of sharing I feel like. Instead, I thought I’d give you the tiniest glimpse into my work life this time around? Hope that’s okay …

We had some super fun events for the new Shaun the Sheep movie – Farmageddon, where I got to meet one of the actual model makers of the Shaun the Sheep figures and then helped him teach little kids and blogger mums how to make their own clay Shauns and Lu-Las (his new alien friend). The kids really seemed to like the movie (what a relief!) and then there’s also a couple of awesome sci-fi references to discover for the adults.

Then there was this whole premiere marathon for a beautiful but sad German romance movie. I traveled from Berlin to Cologne to Munich and back in the span of only a few days, but I think it went fairly well too! The actual movie release is only this upcoming week, but since the film is based on a popular book series (the Danny trilogy by Jessica Koch) here’s to hoping that the bookish community will enjoy it.

So, I hope that gives you an idea of why I have been so consistently absent on the blog. This is, however, my last month at my current workplace and new adventures await after that. We will see what that will exactly look like, but I have a feeling there might be a little break in store for me. I adore all the support and encouragement from everyone around me though and am sure I will find something great soon! I am a workaholic after all …

THINGS I LIKED THIS MONTH

Someone who shares my ambitious mindset (to the absolute extreme) is Payton from Netflix’ new show The Politician. I didn’t expect to love that show at all, but it won me over so quickly. I have been told that it is very on brand for me to like it though, and I am not sure what that says about me exactly, but I am so looking forward to all the seasons of this, which I am sure it will get.

I am especially obsessed with the intro to the show. Can’t even remember the last time that happened, because themes have gotten so boring for a lot of shows these days.

I have also finally battled my inner die hard Charmed fan and started watching the first season of the reboot. I have some choice words to say about it, like they put 3 seasons of plot into 20 episodes alone and that was rushed and unnecessary. Also, they are trying to be so desperately current that I doubt this show will age well, but in the end it all lead to me really enjoying it regardless. I guess I am really too much into witchy content not to appreciate it. Mostly you can thank Rupert Evans and the fact that the show features a 28-year-old virgin like it’s no big deal for my change of heart.

TV SHOW/MOVIE RELATED

TRAILER POSTS

I hope you had a good September and are looking forward to October/Halloween! I have already sorted my costume and usually I am never that early with anything. If you want to chat about last month, just let me know!

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (Sept 23-29)

It is Sunday and we all know what that means – Trailers! I don’t have anything to really preface this post with, so let’s jump right into it.

Movies

Frozen 2

This trailer is finally making some sense.

American Son

I just know that this movie is going to hurt to watch.

Mr Jones

Don’t think this is my cup of tea.

TV Shows

The War of the Worlds

Who would have thought that the BBC finally released the trailer for something they’ve been advertising for over a year? Now, if only they also released the trailer for Noughts and Crosses.

Dollface

There’s a literal cat-lady. I need to see what this is all about.

Mrs Fletcher

Did not know what to expect from a show with that title, but I think I could be into it.

For All Mankind

I kinda dig alternate history shows.

Vagrant Queen

It worries me that Doc is in this, but I guess he needs money too while Wynonna was on hold.

Charmed (Season 2)

I actually, finally, gave this show a chance and am halfway through the first season, but I still don’t think it will age as well as the OG series. Does that mean I won’t continue watching it? Nope, I am HOOKED.

Dynasty (Season 3)

I CANNOT wait and Liam better be alive and well.

BoJack Horseman (Season 6)

I am going to be so sad when it ends, but it will be beautiful and I just know it.

What are you watching? Did you see anything you liked on this list? Let’s chat!

What I’ve Been (Binge-)Watching #20

The week I had was crazy – great, but still crazy. So, once again, I just did not have the time to post anything, however, I was smart enough to download some Netflix shows and movies for the 15 odd hours I spent on the train going through most of Germany (for work).

The Politician

This show might just be my new favourite thing of the moment! I was kind of hesitant, because despite me loving the cast, I am not big on political plotlines, but I LOVED IT! The characters are completely morally ambiguous, they do horrendous things but you still sort of root for some of them. The question of whether you have to be a good person on the inside, or if it’s enough to do good deeds on the outside still haunts me. Not going to lie, it all takes a bit of getting used to and often takes it just that tiny bit too far, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. Still, I feel like it’s going to be a polarising show and probably for a good reason (just thinking about the end of the first episode has me worried), but in my head I was chanting “SEASON 2, SEASON 2, SEASON 2” when the final episode finished.

A point I feel like is worth mentioning is that I adore the theme song and the opening of the show. I haven’t been so obsessed with an opening for a while, but it is beautifully done and features a Sufjan Stevens song, so I am bliss.

For fans of: politics but starting on a high school level, random musical interlopers that at least make sense as part of the story because it is not a musical, Ben Platt and Zoey Deutch

Disenchantment (Part 2)

I don’t watch a lot of animated shows and it has nothing to do with me being a snob, but sometimes I am just not feeling the characters or the art style and the only thing that really touched me was BoJack Horseman, but I was curious after the end of the last part of Disenchantment. This follow up gave us some interesting developments, but in the end, left the viewer pretty much at the same spot as the last season finale. I also wasn’t feeling our trio as much as in the first part, because they weren’t together all that much, or at least it felt that way to me.

Anyway, it’s still funny, but I might just recommend binging this show when all the parts are released, because the wait is pretty annoying with the cliffhangers and all.

For fans of: Disenchantment Part 1, animated shows for adults, dark and dirty humour, not necessarily being politically correct and that being the joke, demons with a heart

Falling Inn Love

Sometimes I don’t want to have to think too much when I watch a movie and that’s when stuff like Falling Inn Love comes in really handy. I don’t care about plotholes or inaccuracies, all I want is some sizzling chemistry between the leads and a romance to root for. Falling Inn Love gave me that and also a place where community still means something and people help each other out. If that film doesn’t make you want to move to the New Zealand countryside, then I don’t even know

For fans of: generic romance movies, people with a New Zealand accent, not too much accuracy about how visa and travel restrictions work, that guy who was once a contestant on the show in UnReal

Home Again

I have actually talked about this movie before, but I have absolutely zero regrets watching it all over again. Just like last time, I basically sat there with a huge grin the entirety of the movie and just enjoyed Reese getting to let loose with a chaotic trio of emotional support boys. I swear, if three strangers wanted to move in with me, become my best friends and help me with all the struggles of daily life, they’d be welcome here!

Also, an aspect that I still love about this flick is that it has a lot to do with old Hollywood and the film industry. That’s not really part of the trailer, but it is something that really makes the movie click with me.

For fans of: love, family, friendship, all the warm feelings, a touch of glam Hollywood hidden in the tale

Room

Yes, I had not, in fact, seen this movie before yesterday. I always wanted to, because it looked very intriguing, but it also had major sad vibes and I had to be in the right mood for it. I obviously also knew that the performances were great, or there wouldn’t have been such a buzz around Brie and Jacob at the time, but I was still blown away by their portrayal of the characters.

I am not sure I could handle this in book-format, but the movie already made me cry and I don’t think I need to experience that in an even more in depth way. Room just felt so raw, authentic and real and with some of the actual cases of abducted women that have surfaced in the past, I never really thought about the story being told from a kid’s point of view.

There was one scene where a TV host interviewed Joy (Brie Larson) and she asked some really nasty questions and that’s when I just lost it and the tears didn’t stop rolling until the very end of the film. This sure is some emotional stuff!

For fans of: sadness, brilliant performances, deep character studies, POV of children


Have you watched any of the shows/movies mentioned above? Do you want to? Let’s talk!

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (Sept 16-22)

I wish I had more time to post things inbetween the trailer posts, but honestly, I am just euphoric about every minute of free time that I have at the moment, so that I don’t really plan much for those rare moments other than rest. But I still manage these weekly trailer round-ups, which I am super glad about to be honest. But I think, by the end of the year, I will have to see where this blog is going and if it sustainable next to my work load.

Movies

The Secret Garden

I loved the movie from the 90s and know that the garden isn’t supposed to be actual magic, but I will wait and see until I can watch the whole movie to judge it.

The Warrior Queen of Jhansi

She looks really badass!

Ordinary Love

This is a different Liam Neeson for once.

Dark Waters

I bet it’s a great movie that a lot of people are gonna ignore again.

The Wave

I don’t understand what’s happening, but I thought it was going to be a remake of the book/movie about peer pressure, which it’s not.

The Rhythm Section

Blake just looks so different now.

In the Shadow of the Moon

Watch it be something supernatural in the end?

Clemency

I don’t think this is my kind of movie.

In the Tall Grass

Do you want to be scared of grass? This is the story for you!

TV Shows

Raising Dion

I AM 100% IN!!!

Living with Yourself

Awe, Paul Rudd vs. himself. Could be interesting?

Dickinson

I am going to go so broke with all these new streaming services.

Daybreak

Well, this is at least a different take on the apocalypse.

Sorry for Your Loss (Season 2)

I HAVE WAITED SO LONG FOR THIS! Give me all the grief and sadness-mess again.

Baby (Season 2)

Still one of the more underrated international shows on Netflix.

Peaky Blinders (Season 5)

I know, I know … it’s already on BBC, but early October it will also be available for binging on Netflix!

Grey’s Anatomy (Season 16)

Do you ever just wonder why this show is still on air?

Will you be tuning in to any of the shows? Will you be watching some of the movies? Let’s chat!

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (Sep 9-15)

I know I keep repeating myself, but it’s been yet another busy week. I was really glad to have this Sunday just all to myself with a chance to sleep in and then just go watch a movie in the theater that’s nearby where I live. But something went wrong at the projection, because they didn’t show any trailers beforehand, so I am all the happier to share some new ones here today.

Movies

Radioactive

I have seen this movie and really, really loved it. I also know a couple people who were immensely bored. I suppose it is not for everyone and maybe more on the romantic side than you’d expect. They also showed the repercussions of her discovery in really fascinating ways.

Like a Boss

Do I think this is gonna be extremely dumb? Heck yeah. Will I watch it anyway? For sure.

Portrait of a Lady on Fire

Yes, yes, I am into this kind of movie.

Scarborough

If this is what I think it is, then I pity the woman for kinda getting into that situation twice.

Last Christmas 

I preferred the first trailer and I feel like they just did this to “prove” he interacts with other humans, but he doesn’t. Just because someone says they like someone for another person, doesn’t mean they met them.

Midway

Somehow I just don’t like the way this looks and I don’t know why.

TV Shows

Looking for Alaska

Not gonna lie, this looks really good so far.

See

So, Jason Momoa raises kiddos for 20 years and doesn’t age a day? I buy it.

Modern Love

I think this could be really good, but I don’t know yet.

Limetown

It looks so creepy, but Facebook Watch is stepping up their game.

Legacies (Season 2)

EXCUSE ME!? Josie and Landon is just … not what I expected at all. I guess they’d be the two teens who’d miss her the most if they could remember her, but Hope was pretty close with Raph too … I don’t know what to think at all. I prefer Hosie as a ship …

Baby (Season 2)

Yay! I’ve been waiting for this hidden Italian gem to continue.

The Good Doctor (Season 3)

To be real, I did not expect this show to last this long.

Riverdale (Season 4)

I have stopped somewhere in S3 because I just couldn’t take it anymore …

Will you be tuning in to any of the shows or check out some of the movies? Let me know in the comments!
