    An End to Streaming?

    “Why Don’t You Have Netflix Yet?” or “Ever Since I Started Streaming, I’ve Saved So Much Money on DVDs!” These were the comments when Netflix first emerged, and they didn’t particularly excite me. We had no interest in Netflix because there was nothing on it that we watched. So, jokingly, I said, “If Star Trek…

    The Boston Strangler: Journalist Investigates Killings

    On Thursdays, we watch a lot of true crime documentaries. Not because I particularly enjoy them, but despite that, I watch them with interest. Consequently, I’ve also started watching more movies based on true crimes lately. So when The Boston Strangler came up (as a film), it seemed intriguing to me. Fortunately, it’s not just…

    Doctor Who: longest running SF show

    Formerly, before the internet, I used to read a lot and watch a lot of television. That has all changed now, thanks to the internet and growing up. But there’s still one program, one series, where my guy and I sit down to watch. And that’s Doctor Who, on BBC1, on Saturday evenings. Doctor Who…

  • Coco, let’s celebrate life

    Coco, let’s celebrate life

    Coco is an incredibly cute family film. It’s a Pixar/Disney movie filled with catchy music and vibrant animation. However, the subject matter of the film isn’t typically associated with being cozy, fun, and cheerful in the Netherlands. It’s about death. How wonderful it is to use this film as a springboard to discuss such a…
