Trailers You Might Have Missed … (April 8-14)

This was a glorious week for trailers! So much so that I feel like some upstaged others when they were released simultaneously. Anyway, check it all out for yourself!

Movies

Star Wars IX: The Rise of Skywalker

Not gonna lie, I got chills and may have shed a tear.

I am part of the faction “if Rey turns out to be a Skywalker I will be disappointed cause it seems like a boring option”, but I am all for Leia adopting her.

The Lion King

You know what? I wasn’t fully on board with this and I think it doesn’t fall under the category “live action”, but this trailer. My oh my, it made me nostalgic and excited.

Pokémon Detective Pickachu

The pokémon look so weird but I cannot wait to watch it in full.

The Addams Family

I am living for the noose braids, but I’d actually have loved it if it had been live action because Oscar Isaac and Charlize Theron could have pulled it off FOR SURE!

Stuber

I feel so sorry for Kumail’s character.

The Last Summer

This is probably going to be as mediocre-meh as The Perfect Date, but I will still watch it.

Anna

The fact that they mostly just show one fight scene is not very promising, but Cillian Murphy!!!

The Professor

I just can’t. Johnny Depp has lost all appeal for me. Not even the fact that this was filmed in Vancouver and I recognise half the locations helps.

Wine Country

Not sure I find this funny.

TV Shows

Veronica Mars

IT RETURNS!! WE HAVE A DATE!!! THIS IS REAL. You cannot believe how happy I am right now, because Veronica Mars was my hero growing up. Heck, she’s still my hero right now and I knew they were making a return with the show, I just didn’t know it would be so soon.

Lucifer (Season 4)

This tells you literally nothing except for the date of return.

Younger (Season 6)

It’s another date reveal!

American Horror Story (Season 9 – 1984)

Okay, so I watched the last season of AHS (Cody Fern be blessed), but I am not sure I am going to return. I think this was a one off for me.

Tales of the City

This has great emotional potential.

The Circle

Do you live in the US and have always dreamed of taking part in a super weird Netflix reality show? Here’s your chance!

Street Food

Netflix making you hungry once more.

Lunatics

Uhm … no, thank you.

Chambers

Too creepy realistic for comfort.

Do you want to watch any of the things mentioned here? What are you most excited about? Let’s talk!

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (April 1-7)

It’s that time of the week again where I show you the latest trailers and promos! I think there’s been some interesting new stuff, so, enjoy!

Movies

Avengers: Endgame (Thanos Trailer)

I guess they made that for all the people complaining that Thanos wasn’t enough in the first trailer.

Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon

This is gonna be a lot of fun!

Joker

Okay, you have my attention. Joaquin sure is bringing his A game to the role.

J.T. LeRoy

Another movie that’s based on real events, but this time it’s drama in the book community!

My Spy

This reminds me of something but I can’t remember what. Either way, it looks like a movie I would have watched when I was younger.

Descendants 3

Will they ever announce a date for it?

The Dead Don’t Die

Zombie movies just really aren’t my thing.

Trial by Fire

A lot of true events kind of movies these days.

All Creatures Here Below

I saw Karen Gillen and klicked.

TV Shows

Game of Thrones (Season 8)

In my opinion, you don’t need to watch this anymore. The show will return in a week and isn’t it cooler to get all the new footage then?

Dead to Me

This looks like a more comedic “A Simple Favor”-esque show. I am in.

How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast)

I can’t tell from the teaser (obviously), but I think this is actually a German show.

The Society

When I was little, I used to watch a show where all adults had died from a virus and only kids and teens survived but it was nowhere near as Lord of Flies as this.

Gentleman Jack

I am intrigued, especially since it’s based on actual events?

Fosse/Verdon

Sam Rockwell AND Michelle Williams!? What a duo.

Yellowstone (Season 2)

I didn’t even know this show existed, but it has a season 2 apparently and it looks like Dallas or Blood & Oil in a national park.

Too Old to Die Young

This looks so messed up.

No Good Nick

Looks interesting enough for a Netflix binge should I be bored. I only wonder why this was uploaded on the kids channel alone.

Which one of these will you be watching? Did anything catch your eye? Let’s talk!

March 2019 Wrap-Up

I originally intended to be more active this month, but a couple hick-ups along the way and some generally not so fun events have made me a little apathetic towards everything that wasn’t sleep. I’m better now though and hope to get more passionate about writing posts and reading and watching TV (yeah, not even that was very entertaining at times) again.

While The Wicker King and its novella didn’t get the highest rating of my reads this year so far, I still very much enjoyed reading the books. I think my approach of reading less or really only the things I truly gravitate towards is doing wonders. Most of the books I have picked up this year were amazing and I had a lot of fun (or other emotions) with them.

If you want to read my review for The Wicker King as well as some short thoughts on The Legend of the Golden Raven (which is the companion novella from Jack’s POV) click here.

I didn’t feel like cancelling the book section of this post entirely, but I might in future posts if I really only read about one book per month. For now, fingers crossed I’ll pick up something that’s a super quick read though. If I can finish it in a day or on a weekend, I might just be up for it.

There’s not really much to tell other than that. Part of my family has come to visit Berlin this past weekend and it was really fun to play tourist with them for a bit. Aside from being super tired from walking around (and I did less walking than they did), I don’t think I would have seen as much or tried some things if they hadn’t been here with me. I am really grateful for that experience! One thing I would definitely recommend is the German Spy Museum! Even when it’s pretty full, you get to do loads of interactive stuff such as learn morse code, look for bugs in a room, do a laser maze or try how you’d fare at a job interview for a secret intelligence service (in this case the Australian one, which I now know how to nail. You can try it yourself here). Even if some of the things may have been targeted at kids, who didn’t ever want to be a spy when they were younger and just likes pretending now too?

THINGS I LIKED THIS MONTH

Apart from discovering some more of Berlin, I really just stuck with my Skam remakes again this month. It’s so interesting to see the German approach to the Isak/Even season, especially since they REALLY changed things up. I am so happy to see them include a trans character played by a trans actor and just generally do a lot of callbacks to the original show as well as small references to the other remakes, but always do their own thing as well.

The French version has just ended their Isak/Even season and jumped right into the next one without so much as a break. My inner fangirl rejoices at stuff like that. Although I am going to miss Lucas and Eliott like crazy, they had an amazing run. I was just constantly blown away by the acting, especially that of Axel Auriant. He has quickly become one of the young talents I am definitely going to look forward to seeing in more projects in the future. What he does just feels so real! (I mean, he did actually hurt his hand while punching a wall, so … part of it is real, I suppose).

MY POSTS

TV SHOW/MOVIE RELATED

TRAILER POSTS

I hope you had a good month and that we can all start into April without too many pranks (I just really don’t like April Fool’s Day, cause I fall for everything). 

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (March 25-31)

I know it’s pretty inconsequential, but I always like it when a trailer post falls exactly on the last day of a month. It’s a me thing, I suppose. Anyway, here are the trailers I found:

Movies

The Perfect Date

This looks very … predictable? I’d still watch it (and hope it won’t be as disappointing as Sierra Burgess).

Fast Color

I shared this trailer before, but I don’t care. The movie looks so stunning, I want it in my life.

UglyDolls

I still feel like that movie is jumping on some sort of bandwagon, but it’s growing on me.

Angry Birds 2

I just so didn’t care for the first movie, so I have no clue what to do with this one.

Villains (Sneak Peek)

I NEED to see this movie. It looks brilliant. (Was Bill always this tall!?)

Mary Magdalene

Uhm, I thought this was already released? I am not much into biblical content, but the atmospheric vibes with the music etc. are really beautiful in the trailer.

The Tomorrow Man

I really thought there was going to be a scifi aspect to this.

The Silence

Is this A Quiet Place meets Bird Box meets the Spellman family? Apparently it is based on a book, so I doubt it drew on all of those recent pop culture phenomena, but still …

The Professor and the Madman

This isn’t really my kind of movie, but maybe some of you are interested in historical fiction.

TV Shows

Special

I like that the main actor really is a gay man who has cerebral palsy. The rep should be on point then.

Pennyworth

Am I the only one so jaded that I am not interested in all the origin stories anymore?

Euphoria

No clue what’s going on, but it looks pretty.

Animal Kingdom (Season 4)

I am so pumped for that show to return.

The 100 (Season 6)

I don’t know how I am supposed to feel about this. The show is getting sort of repetitive, while this also just doesn’t have the same vibes as previous the 100 seasons.

What are you watching? Did you like anything you saw in this post? Let’s talk about it!

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (March 18-24)

It’s that time of the week again, where I show you all the trailers and promos I found. I hope you have a good time with them and find something new to watch!

Movies

Toy Story 4

Can’t stop laughing at the “no, she literally made a friend” part.

Unicorn Store

Brie Larson keeps surprising me in the best of ways.

Dora and the Lost City of Gold

Look, I am not against this movie, but hear me out. They took a TV show with a talking map and backpack that was clearly targeted at very little children and made a live action teenage Lara Croft with comedy elements? Who thought of that!? Where do these target groups overlap except for nowhere at all?

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Unpopular opinion, but I am not a Tarantino fan HOWEVER this looks really good and I want to watch it.

Lucy in the Sky

If you didn’t expect this to be about the Beatles song and you didn’t want to add “with diamonds” at the end of it … you are making me feel very old.

Who Would You Take to a Deserted Island?

I’d have preferred it, if they had kept it in the original language with subtitles … but … is this an alternate reality to Elite?

HUGE in France

This seems weirdly meta.

The Keeper

I watched this movie already and cried so much. There’s definitely a lot more emotional depth to it than you might expect (and no, the trailer does not show everything).

The Last Black Man in San Francisco

The sound and visuals look great!

John Wick: Chapter 3

I don’t know what to say about this.

William

That seems like a really cruel life experiment.

Savage Youth

It gets more intriguing after a while, but that’s not a movie that works for everyone.

TV Shows

Stranger Things (Season 3)

They have grown so much!!! I could talk about this trailer for hours probably, but suffice to say, I am excited.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (Part 2)

I have my quarrels with this show, but I will watch for Prudence, Ambrose and Nick. Also … maybe … a tiny bit interested in what creepy yet hot Satan has planned?

Did you see anything you liked on the list this week? Are you excited for any of the upcoming releases? Let’s talk!

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (March 11-17)

I don’t really feel like recapping what happened this week, so we are just going to dive right into the selection of today’s trailers!

Movies

Avengers: Endgame

It looks so epic! I can’t wait for Carol and Thor’s first meeting!

Aladdin

Okay, so I still get that there are issues with the casting etc. but the music has me so nostalgic and more inclined to watch it by now.

Long Shot

It’s going to be hilarious!

Good Boys

Why is this so dumb and why am I laughing so much at this?

Booksmart

Not gonna lie, I can relate to those girls in a way.

Descendants 3

So, what are the rumours I hear about Mal’s dad being Hades? Are we adding Gods now?

Charlie Says

This could be very interesting. I am really digging the casting.

Family

Family is so complicated.

The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann

Documentary of the week.

TV Shows

Tuca & Bertie

It looks like it’s set in the Bojack Horseman universe, but the creator said it’s not.

On My Block (Season 2)

I see a certain character being suspiciously absent from this trailer and I wonder if it has something to do with their irl political opinion that so didn’t fit with the show?

What are you going to watch from this list? Are you excited for any of the movies/shows mentioned? Let’s talk!

Trailers You Might Have Missed … (March 4-10)

This weekend, the weather in Berlin has been really … inconvenient. It was rainy and windy, which is bad for me but great for the cinemas of the city. You wouldn’t believe what a boost some bad weather can be for the box office. Anyway, you are here for new trailers and you shall receive them!

Movies

Late Night

99.9% sure I am going to love this movie.

Someone Great

This is going to be someTHING great!

Tolkien

They even made the thumbnail look like he had elf ears.

Tell it to the Bees

So, this is a book you say?

Dark Phoenix

I still feel like this is super spoilery.

Red Joan

I thought I had shared this already, but now I am not sure and I think it looks cool so I’d rather have it twice.

Native Son

I heard the novel of this one is super dark.

Life Like

I like stuff about androids gaining consciousness, but how boring if he just falls in love with the wife.

The Art of Self-Defense

Interesting, but not sure about it just yet.

TV Shows

Good Omens

I can’t wait to watch this!

Motherland: Fort Salem

Uhm, okay, use witches as soldiers.

Game of Thrones (Season 8)

I am so ready for this! I don’t even know what to say … I definitely could do with less Dany/Jon scenes haha

On My Block (Season 2)

Wow, they’re really toying with our emotions, aren’t they?

Queer Eye (Season 3)

Who else is ready for the floodgates to open again?

Shameless (Season 9 Finale)

I feel like this should be the finale of the show.

What are you watching? I just finished Netflix’ first Turkish vampire series and it was a trip, although not one I would necessarily recommend to everyone. Did anything on this list catch your eye? Let’s talk!
