Cinema Club // October 2019

A little bit later than usual, but it’s always a good time to talk about movies, if you ask me. So let’s talk about the movies and series I watched in October, from Joker to Rocketman (yes, I’m still standing and singing along to the soundtrack). Did you know 500 Days of Summer is already…

Cinema Club // September 2019

From Dirty Dancing to La portrait de la jeune fille en feu, let’s discuss the movies I’ve seen in September in this freshly squeezed cinema club. Now that the days are getting shorter and the nights colder, it’s the perfect time to either brave the rain outside and seek shelter in the movie theaters or…

Oscar buzz, rebellious birds and billboards, and film stars

It’s award season and it’s buzzing with rumors, nominations and wins. The past few weeks I was able to get my ass to the cinema (despite this super-crazy-important deadline of my master thesis proposal looming over my head) and I got to see some great films. Even though the second month of the year has…

Cinema Club // December 2017

I also revived my love for costume dramas, travelled to outer space and laughed at British film actors pronouncing Dutch names in this month’s Cinema Club. // Valerian…

Cinema Club // August 2017

These couple of weeks are full of trips for me, and for some not quite inexplicable reason, trips are always filled with trips to the cinema. This month’s cinema club includes the best action-packed blockbuster of this Summer, “Atomic Blonde” (2017), an informative and heartwarming documentary about cats, “Kedi” (2016), and Christopher Nolan’s new masterpiece…

Cinema Club // July 2017

With moving to a new city comes a period of discovery: how to get to the supermarket, how to work public transport without ending up on the other side of town, where to eat the best cake and, perhaps most importantly, where to go the cinema. Luckily for me, Rotterdam has multiple cinemas scattered all…
