Olaf’s Frozen Adventure

Olaf is back !

This looks so sweet. After seeing the short film which was centered around Spring, now we get to see them at Christmas time. And this is my favourite holiday. December is my favourite month. Frozen is one of my favourites films. So I couldn’t be more excited. Especially because it’s linked to Coco, the newest Pixar Film. We will have new songs about Christmas and family. I mean, who wouldn’t be excited? I do hope they don’t milk the story too much. I’d rather see a full length second film really soon, then 10 little short films. Disney get at it.

Flatliners

Students go further than ever to get a rush

This movie started out looking like a movie about students and partying, but then took a turn for the worse. Actually for the better, because it seems like a really interesting movie with great actors, a lot of possible crazy plot points and amazing action scenes. The concept is actually so interesting and one that has been touched upon here and there, but not in a full-blown movie. I can’t wait to see what they do with it and how it’ll turn out. I hope it doesn’t get stuck in its seriousness about the afterlife, but that they focus on the thriller aspect of the movie.

Jungle

Daniel Radcliffe is stuck in the Jungle

What is it with movies lately, this is the second trailer where the story takes us a certain way at first, and then turns it completely around and goes the thriller route? It’s build the entirely same way as Flatliners. First giving us a more ‘Into the Wild’-vibe. Daniel Radcliffe is on a journey around the world, travelling, experiencing life as it comes, seeing beautiful new places. Then he meets someone who takes him and a few others into the jungle to explore and leaves them all behind and then shit happens. It does seem like a great movie, with a lot of action and suspense, but the way the trailer was built, just reminded me a lot of the other one. I’m not sure I’ll see this one in cinemas though. Depends a bit on the second trailer. I’m more into the sci-fi storyline of Flatliners.

Goodbye Christopher Robin

story of the creator of Winnie The Pooh

This seems like such a cute movie, a bit like Paddington. The images look great and from this first look it seems a perfect blend of cinematography and music. I’m excited to see how Margot Robbie’s British accent will be. But I’m mostly excited to see how they’ll tell the story. I hope it will be full of fantasy, really putting the stories they tell on our screens in combination with their actual story. Just a bit of a mix like with Big Fish. We’ll have to wait and see. But I’ll be sure to check this one in cinemas.  

Daddy’s Home 2

Meet the Fockers #2

I wasn’t really interested in the first film, but this one seems actually really funny. Plus, I must be honest, I’m a sucker for a good Christmas movie. It does remind me a lot of Meet the Fockers and Meet the Parents. But with Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell it will have it’s own type of humor. And I can’t wait to see Mel Gibson and John Lithgow clash. This will be one I will watch in the month of December, at home, and add to my pile of Christmas movies to get me excited for the holidays. I’m already in the mood for it. ^^

Home Again

Another Romantic Comedy with Reese Witherspoon

Now this second trailer has me a bit more excited for this film. The short sentence I read on IMDb, doesn’t really come over in the trailer though. I didn’t get the feeling they were moving in with her and her family, but I do think this will give a more interesting twist to the story and i can’t wait to see how it will turn out. I won’t go see it in cinemas, but I’ll pick it up when I want to watch a movie on a lazy night or for a fun girlsnight.

What do you think? Are any of these films on your watchlist? And which ones will you be seeing in cinemas?

The Mountain Between Us

Idris Elba and Kate Winslet try to survive

I don’t really know what to think of this movie. It’s packed with star power. Idris Elba and Kate Winslet are both great actors with different awards behind their names and now they are acting together in a disaster movie. Do they want to attract award nominations and make a really serious movie about survival, or do they just want to make a good disaster movie, full of action, survival and suspense? I just don’t know and this bothers me a bit. Normally a trailer is more ‘open’ about the way they want to take this movie, but here I frankly don’t know. I prefer to know it before I watch a movie so I can put myself in the right mindset. Maybe trailer #2 will give me another perspective on this. I will watch it, but probably not in cinemas.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard

Funny and Action, I’m in

Now, this seems like a fun movie. With Ryan Reynolds as the bodyguard charged with protecting Samuel L. Jackson as the hitman, this movie has a lot going for it. Next to them we can also see Salma Hayek and so many others. It seems to has a nice plot, a lot of crazy action scenes and gives of a little bit of a Deadpool and Kingsman vibe. This will definitely be one I’ll be seeing in cinemas, just to experience it in all its glory on the big screen.

Murder on the Orient Express

A huge cast tackles this well-known tale

This was a trailer I waited so long for and it looks great! The huge cast they got together is just so impressive that I’m sure this film will be amazing. The cinematography looks great. The music seems on point. The graphics are perfect. It all seems so well put together and the tension is already real in the trailer. I can’t wait to see this great story turned to the big screen again with some of the biggest stars of the moment. November can’t be here quick enough.

Coco

The latest Pixar Movie

Yes, Pixar is back! And this seems like the cutest film ever. I already saw the teaser trailer, but here we get to see more of the story and the feel of the movie; At first sight, it does remind me a bit of ‘The Book of Life’, but I hope the story takes us a totally different way. I think they will focus more on family and the differences between their worlds. The images and graphics look great, as per usual with a Pixar movie and I’m sure it will hit us right in the heart. Definitely one I will watch in cinemas.

Black Panther

Damn

I like where Marvel is heading with this one. I watched it three-four times in a row just to be sure that I catched up on all the little details. Because, wauw. The way they blend African culture with the modern world is amazing. The action scenes look mindblowing. The costumes are ridiculously gorgeous and the story will be, in my opinion, one of the more interesting ones in the Marvel universe. Only negative point is that we’ll have to wait until February of next year until we can see it.

What do you think? Are any of these films on your watchlist? And which ones will you be seeing in cinemas?

Tulip Fever

Tulip, Art and The Netherlands…

Being from Belgium, I’ve known a little bit about the history of the Netherlands and their beautiful flowers, the Tulips. Here, this movie will give us a combination of what they’re known for the best: Tulip and art. Now, this story does remind me a little bit of ‘The Girl With The Pearl Earring’, working with a similar story (painter falls in love with his subject). But with Alicia Vikander and Dane DeHaan, I can’t expect anything but greatness. These are highly talented actors and I can’t wait to see what they bring to the story.

Colossal

Anne Hathaway is a kickass Monster

Now this one seems interesting. Anne Hathaway gets her chance here to put her comedic talent to use in an action movie. It seems an interesting story, another twist to a genre overly present on screens nowadays. It seems dark and funny and I can’t wait to see what turn this story will take. I hope it doesn’t take itself too seriously or too funny, but that they easily find the perfect combination. This is a must-see for me.

The Defenders (Netflix)

Netflix Latest Marvel Story

I’m just not convinced. I’m not… You can say what you want, but they don’t seem an interesting match to me. The fun thing about the Avengers is that they are all so different and their differences make their combination interesting. Daredevil, Jessica Jonas, Luke Cage and the Iron Fist are all broody, dark people and I’m afraid they will all be mushed together. I’m just not sure about this one.

The Dark Tower

Another Stephen King Adaptation

Sometimes I get the feeling they don’t know what to film anymore. They keep picking up other stories that already have known success. This one seems  rather interesting, but I’m a bit scared that the trailer looks too good to be true. Knowing Stephen King and his Fantasy stories, there will be a lot of background and story you’ll have to know before understanding the entire world and I’m afraid the movie won’t be long enough to be explained logically. Either it will only be explaining the world to set everything up for the next film (if there is one). Or it will be more action and we’ll be guessing how the world works. I’ll definitely check this one out, but I’m not entirely sure whether I’ll see it in cinemas or at home. One thing I am excited about seeing is Matthew McConaghey as a bad guy. That must be so interesting.

Dunkirk

Christopher Nolan tackles a War story

This is one of my more anticipated movies of all time! Okay, of 2017. I mean Christopher Nolan who tackles the story of Dunkirk, what could go wrong. This can’t be any more than perfection. I can’t wait to see how he brings this story to life and if you look at the cast (except of Harry Styles, I mean, Euhm what the hell?) this movie will be brought to life by some amazing actors. I just… I can’t put my thoughts and emotions on paper, because I’m so excited! I’ll definitely check this one out in cinemas.

Trailer Review – Wonder Woman

This June, witness the future of justice

The new trailer for the 2017 Wonder Woman is out and gave us a little sneak peak of what is to come. You can see it right here.

I’m not a huge fan of DC Comics, I’m more of a Marvel girl myself, but I did enjoy The Dark Knight series by Christopher Nolan. I’ve always been a huge fan of his, but here I thought he made these stories really his and left his mark on the superhero genre. So when Ben Affleck came as the new Batman and they made an entire new series with this character, I was hugely sceptical. And honestly I haven’t seen the latest one, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and I heard this wasn’t the best story out there. This is the movie though where Wonder Woman is first introduced. I am highly anticipating her Origin story though.

Wonder Woman_01

Wonder Woman has in my mind always been one of the strongest female superheroes out there and one I always looked up to. I’m especially interested in this one, because next to being an Origin story, they’re also making it a war film. And we’re going to get the entire story, from when she first arrived on the island of Themyscira, until she leaves to fight in WWI.

Wonder Woman_02

Judging by this trailer, the production design will be sick. They pulled all the stops out. The images look great. The costumes are fierce and all the Amazons look magnificent. The action scenes are breathtaking. And this is only the trailer. Can you feel how excited I am? Gal Gadot is also remarkable as Wonder Woman and I can’t wait to see what she brings to the character. Costume- and look-wise she’s Wonder Woman incarnated and I can’t wait to see her on the big screen in her own movie, the first superhero movie focused on a female character.

Wonder Woman_03.jpg

One thing I want to touch upon, but only a tiny little bit, is the shaved armpits. Why did this blow up so much? Yes, they didn’t have any ads that showed them beauty and the rules they have to follow, but women have been following specific rules long before advertisements ever became a thing. Women always had to look beautiful and different then men, so my question to you is why couldn’t there be any rules on their island? Why couldn’t there be any rules (not touched upon in this trailer, movie or in the comics) regarding beauty? They braid their hair, they wear specific type of clothes that facilitate their fighting. So why couldn’t there be any rules about this? Would I have preferred that she had some armpit hair? Yes. But does it bother me she doesn’t? Not at all. And I’m sure it won’t take away from my pleasure seeing this movie. I’m just glad there’s finally a female superhero movie.  

This is one of the superhero movies that I’m most looking forward to this year and I can’t wait until it comes out in theatres on June 1st.
