As a big Disney fan, I got quite excited when I saw there was another Disney movie coming up, a movie like they did with Maleficent this year. This time they did a remake of the classic fairytale story Cinderella, who is played by Lily James. I watched the trailer and I love it, the blue dress that Cinderella wears at the ball is so pretty and how awesome is it that Helena Bonham Carter (who is brilliant by the way) will be portraying the Fairy Godmother? It looks like she’ll be giving a hilarious touch to that character. I’m looking forward to see it! Read more
Yesterday, the third installment of The Hunger Games film series, Mockingjay part 1, launched itself in Belgium, of course as a fan of the books and the movies I had to go and see it.
For the ones who haven’t read the books, the movie opens with Katniss feeling confused and not really knowing where she is and who she is. She keeps saying I’m Katniss Everdeen, I participated in The Hunger Games.
She finds out that her own district doesn’t exist anymore as Gale told her at the end of the previous movie Catching Fire. For years, all of the districts including the Capitol thought that district 13 had vanished but apparently they have been living for all that time underground, they’ve built their lives there now.
Mid October, Ed Sheeran’s and Phillip Butah’s book ‘A Visual Journey‘ came out, it’s about Ed’s journey, how he has built his career up, up until now. It was so interesting and inspiring to read, how he went from gigging every day, performing in front of 3/4 people to sleeping on the subway until it was noon again to singing in arenas and collaborating with amazing artists such as Taylor Swift. As he has said before, it’s more a book to inspire people who have creative ambitions, who later want to do something that doesn’t require a degree. He finds it too early to have an autobiography already so he decided to create something like this with a childhood friend of his who is also an artist at the same time, he is the one who has done all the amazing drawings in this book, he is incredibly talented. At the end of this book, there is also a chapter about Phillip Butah and how he works which I also enjoyed reading. I definitely recommend reading it if you’re a fan or simply if you want some inspiration (if you’re an aspiring singer-songwriter or artist for example).
