Bee movie

I never would have picked an animated movie about bees myself, but I'm so glad my friend recommend it to me! I actually learned something about bees :D Which is always a big plus. But most of all, the animation is crazy good and it's such an entertaining movie. Perfect for a cosy Sunday afternoon!

Quiz me Quick

Deze post is er ééntje voor de Vlaamse fans! Bra! (als je dit leest, West-Vlaming bent en de referentie naar Snowblow niet door had, shame on you!)...

Nu en dan duikt er een parel van een Belgische serie op, en dat is zeker het geval met Quiz me Quick. De eerste keer dat deze serie uitgezonden werd, was ik waarschijnlijk van de aardbol verdwenen. Maar lucky me, onlangs waren er herhalingen en ik was meteen verkocht.

Hoogtepunt van de serie was toch wel weer Tine Embrechts met haar zalig accent: een quizken hier, een quizken daar, en voor dat ge et wet, zit hij met z'n tong in haar oor. Ah, Gwendy en haar goeie raad, I miss it so much!

The Book Thief

It's been forever since I lost blogged. Sorry about that, but you know, life happened ;)
But I'm back! Which means, a new movie recommendation!

I'm obsessed with books, so when I found a movie named "The Book Thief", I just had to see it. It's about a jewish girl, Liesel, who loses her family in the Second World War and is adopted by a couple, in the middle of Nazi Germany. What attracts me the most in this movie, is the magic that the adoptive father of Liesel creates for her, even if they are living in one of the most horrible eras of European history. This is just such a powerful movie about the importance of litterature (and fantasy), friendship and love. I'm so excited to read the book this movie is based on!

Por la libre

My love for Mexico also means that I'm obsessed with the Mexican movie scene. Mexico has such great actors, writers and directors... And no, I'm not talking about the telenovelas. I just love that every movie seems to have a lot of desmadre in it. I'm sorry, I can't translate this word, but my Mexican readers will know what I'm talking about :) This also counts for Por La Libre, a movie that I discovered thanks to a friend of mine. It's about family, love, intrigues, fiesta y desmadre. I really have to go back to Mexico asap ♡ And guess what? The complete movie is available on Youtube! Yes!

I didn't know why I didn't watch Lost when it aired, biggest mistake of my life! Because now I'm watching, I'm totally obsessed and I can't geek out because everybody is already over it. Let me tell you, I have a new favorite series (I'm so sorry ER, still love you though) : LOST IS THE BEST SERIES EVER

The New World

The first time I saw Disney's Pocahontas, I fell in love with not only the character of Pocahontas, but Native American culture in general. With the years, this love shifted more to Latin American indigenous culture. Hence my decision to study Master in Mexican Litterature, where I learnt a lot about the Mexican precolonial culture. But I still fill a very strong attraction to Native Americans, for sure because one of my ancestors was a Native American. I'm still so bummed out that I don't have raven dark hair like my mom.

Anyhow, Pocahontas will always be my rolemodel: as beautiful on the inside as on the outside, the utter respect she has for mother nature, her urge for freedom... A couple of years ago, they made this movie called The New World. It gives a more realistic approach to who Pocahontas really was, and although it's kinda depressing (apparently, true love just doesn't get a chance), I love it so much. My favorite part of the movie is when Pocahontas and John still live in Powhatan's tribe, life seems so idyllic there.

There is nobody who could have played John Smith better than Colin Farrell, he's got that brooding bad boy image going on, but you can't help falling in love with him. But the real star of the movie is Q'orianka Kilcher. Since I saw her in this movie, I'm kinda obsessed with her. How beautiful is she? She looks so naive and good and pure. Just wow. My favorite scene is when Smith is teaching her English and she learns him to greet in her language. Nobody could play Pocahontas like she does: how she walks, how she talks the native language... Give that girl an Oscar already!

Cinderella

When I was a little girl, I was obsessed with anything magic: fairies, trolls, witches... You name it, I loved it! And this love for all things magical only grew with the years. So you can only imagine what a great impact Disney made on me. Thanks to Netflix (yes, I FINALLY got Netflix), I discovered Disney's new movie about Cinderella. When I was little, I wasn't really a "disney princess" kinda girl. I was the one that was obsessed with Pocanhontas and Ariel. But I'm reconsidering my interest in Cinderella: a girl with a heart of gold, whose friends are animals and with a fond believe in magic? I think I have a new rolemodel!

I can't even start to explain how much I love this movie: they casted the sweetest and most beautiful Cinderella ever, the costumes are breathtaking, the scenery is just perfect... God I love this movie! And two of my favorite leading ladies are in it: Cate Blanchett (my alltime favorite!) plays the wicked stepmother, which is kind of a pity, because I prefer to see her in nice roles. She's just the most beautiful and sweetest actress out there! But she plays such a bad stepmother, I really hated her! And ofcourse, Helena Bonham Carter does an excelent job as the fairy godmother. I mean, what actress could do this role more justice than Helena?! She's so funny and her mimic is priceless. And if you're still not convinced to see this movie... Prince Charming doesn't like bad at all... ;)
