Best of 2014: Movies Released in 2014

22/12/2014 // 0 Comments

So for the third post in this Best of series, I am going to talk about movies. More specifically, movies that were released this year (and of course, those that I’ve watched and loved). I was a bit surprised at myself that I saw so many movies that were released this year, because I hadn’t really thought I would at first (I don’t own a Pathé Unlimited Card anymore so I didn’t go to the cinema as much as I would have wanted). But hey, I did watch at least ten movies that [...]

Best of 2014

15/12/2014 // 0 Comments

So seeing as 2014 is coming to an end, I decided to do my annual Best of lists again. I will be posting these from the 19th to the 31st of December, and they will be about books, movies, TV shows, events and cosplay. I’ve decided that I want to post more about cosplay because it’s a thing I have done more often this year, and it’s also something I’ll probably do more in 2015 as well. So I’m just going to talk about my favourite cosplays that I did this year! I will [...]

Trailer: Insurgent

12/12/2014 // 0 Comments

We already got a small teaser trailer a couple of weeks ago, but today the official full trailer for the movie based on Insurgent, the second book in the Divergent series written by Veronica Roth! I personally think it looks amazing, though I’ve seen a lot of people moaning about that it looks nothing like the book. I have decided to stop wanting movies that look exactly like the book and I have started to think that these movies are just BASED on the book, so that way I won’t be [...]

05/12/2014 // 0 Comments

I went to see my favourite band perform again, in the Patronaat in Haarlem. This is one of the shows of their farewell tour, and though I enjoyed it very much, I also felt really sad when I realised this would be one of the last times I would see them perform. I made these pictures with a Canon EOS 600D and a 70-300mm lens. See more pictures (concert pictures and convention pictures) on my Flickr [...]
