Watch These Trailers // vol IV

Now who doesn’t love a good trailer? I know I do. 
In Watch These Trailers, I make a list of ten recent trailers that look promising or are worth talking about. Find the trailer I’m talking about by clicking on the title.
This volume has mostly trailers that came out of San Diego Comic Con, except for the last two. The convention took place last weekend and saw the release of many trailers for some of the most anticipated upcoming movies. I have already talked about the Marvel/Netflix series and their new trailers in detail, so they are not included here.


Wonder Woman
This is probably one of the most talked about trailers from the convention. It’s the first time that we’re getting a female-led superhero movie. There’s been a lot of talk about a standalone Black Widow movie, which we still aren’t getting, and the Captain Marvel movie, which is set to premiere in 2019. This means that Wonder Woman is the first one to star in her own movie and from what we can see in this trailer, it’s going to be awesome. It’s set during the first World War and seems to offer some amazing action scenes. The movie sees Gal Gadot reprise her role as the titular character after she already appeared in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Chris Pine, Robin Wright and Connie Nielson will appear alongside her. She later will again portray the character in Justice League, but more on that later.

Marvel And Netflix Defend Their Upcoming Series With New Trailers

As everyone is trying to build their own cinematic universe, the company that did it first is coming at us with another one. After their immensely successful MCU, Marvel is teaming up with Netflix to extend this universe to television. While this is old news, as the plans were made three years ago and two series have already seen the light of day, yesterday at SDCC we got a look at what’s up ahead and how the expansion will continue.


On the first day of San Diego Comic Con, Marvel and Netflix held a joint panel where they made some announcements and released quite a few trailers.

Childhood Fandoms

Ever since I was a kid I was part of several fandoms. Not in the way that I would rave about it with others, but I did collect a lot of toys or books or anything else that was part of the merchandising. As I was recollecting memories from my childhood I can say that I’ve been part of five major fandoms. That is to say that these are the main ones, as I was a fan of a lot of things. Though if I would include all of those into this post, I could go on forever.


Bob the Builder
If you don’t believe everything is possible, then you don’t know Bob the Builder. He can build everything you want and fix all that is broken. As a kid, this series was amazing. It had a sympathetic and reliable main character and several other characters, in this case vehicles, who each had a different personality that added to a whole. What now seems like a simple, and silly to be honest, series was something great to watch when I was young.

Liebster Award II

I was tagged for another Liebster Award by Bex from Film Music Central. I did one of these quite a while ago and I’ve seen them around very often. You basically get some question that you have to answer as best as you can.


What is your favourite animated Disney film?
I think it’ll have to be The Lion King. It’s a great movie and I recently saw the musical adaptation in London and it was just amazing. Now to be honest, it has been a while since I’ve last seen a Disney animated film. I should really watch those more often because there are a lot of them that I still haven’t seen yet and I’ve forgotten a lot about the ones that I did see.

Which Star Wars film is the best?
I’m going to have to say the latest one, Star Wars: the Force Awakens. I saw all of the movies this year for the first time and the last one blew my mind and surpassed, for me personally, the older ones. Probably because the visual effects have improved immensely since the first one was released.

#1   How do you pick your next book to read?
I honestly just pick whatever I’m in the mood for, whether I want something fantasy or rather something comedic. It depends on how I’m feeling at the time of choosing. I tried setting up a TBR-jar once, but I found myself picking another paper if the one I got wasn’t really what I wanted.

#2   Which book or series do you consider a must-read?
For this one, I’m choosing a series that I haven’t read yet and I feel like I should be reading soon as it’s kind of obligatory. There’s all those fantasy-series like The Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, but I’m going with basically all the books by Agatha Christie.

Captain America: Civil War | Non-Spoiler | Movie Review

Captain America Civil War

IMDB | Letterboxd | Trailer

Marvel’s latest movie has some of their biggest superheroes clashing each other in a conflict about being regulated by the government. What an incredible third part of an already amazing trilogy. Almost everything about this movie was impeccable and it has the best action sequence I’ve seen in a while.  Continue reading Captain America: Civil War | Non-Spoiler | Movie Review

Deadpool | Movie Review

Deadpool

IMDB | Letterboxd | Trailer

So I finally went to see Deadpool a couple of days ago. It’s long overdue since it came out more than a month ago. Even the cashier at the movie theater didn’t believe we were this late to watch the movie. My sister knows her, so she wasn’t being rude or something and she had a point. For being a big fan of superhero movies and Marvel in general, it did take me a while to go watch this. Now that I’ve finally seen Deadpool I have to admit, I don’t really know how I feel about it. It was exactly what I expected it was going to be, but it also wasn’t entirely that. I’m making no sense at all, am I? Let me explain.
