“Letzte Stunde vor den Ferien” vom Neo Magazin Royale mit Jan Böhmermann

Mit dem Segment "Letzte Stunde vor den Ferien" hat er nicht nur vier Klassiker der deutschen Literatur … Continue reading “Letzte Stunde vor den Ferien” vom Neo Magazin Royale mit Jan Böhmermann

“Never Let Me Go” by Kazuo Ishiguro

After re-reading "The Handmaid's Tale" by Margaret Atwood and watching the Hulu-adaptation I remembered one other dystopian story that had a profound effect on me. "Never Let Me Go" by Kazuo Ishiguro is a 2005 novel, was adapted in 2010 for the big screen by Mark Romanek, and a novel I never actually read. I watched … Continue reading “Never Let Me Go” by Kazuo Ishiguro

“The Handmaid’s Tale” by Margaret Atwood

Ever since Donald Trump has become president of the United States interest in dystopian novels such as George Orwell's "1984", Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World" or Ray Bradbury's "Fahrenheit 451" has peaked.

Jay Asher’s “13 Reasons Why”

To be honest, I had never heard of "13 Reasons Why" or Jay Asher before the show of the same name premiered on Netflix, and even then I just saw it pop up on my screen as a suggestion and didn't bother with it. However, as the controversy around it grew bigger I decided to … Continue reading Jay Asher’s “13 Reasons Why”

A Goodbye to “Girls”

Ever since "Girls" premiered on HBO I didn't know whether to like or dislike Lena Dunham (I could say hate, but that's a strong word and I'm not totally sure I can feel that range of emotion due to my emotional laziness). I watched its first three seasons, then stopped watching it because it kind … Continue reading A Goodbye to “Girls”

AMC’s “The Walking Dead”

I know, I'm late to the game with only posting this now, but with "The Walking Dead" being late has kind of been my thing. I started watching the show when it was already in its fourth season, and by the way, the show was the very reason why I got Netflix "only for the … Continue reading AMC’s “The Walking Dead”

“Menschen Leben Tanzen Welt” von Jim Pandzko feat. Jan Böhmermann im Neo Magazin Royale

Dass Jan Böhmermann eine hohe Affinität für Musik hat und sich auch selbst gut auf der Bühne macht, hat er im Neo Magazin Royale schon oft genug bewiesen. Allein mit den musikalischen Gästen in letzter Zeit (Father John Misty, Bilderbuch, Get Well Soon & Kat Frankie um nur einige zu nennen) oder der Wahl seiner … Continue reading “Menschen Leben Tanzen Welt” von Jim Pandzko feat. Jan Böhmermann im Neo Magazin Royale

“Beauty And The Beast”

Ever since Disney announced they were making a live action adaptation of their 1991 classic "Beauty And The Beast" I was excited beyond measure, as the original was one of my absolute favorites as a child. And the good news kept on coming. Writers? Evan Spiliotopoulos (you might know him from writing the script to … Continue reading “Beauty And The Beast”

“Stranger Things” on Netflix

Last summer Netflix graced us with a new and exciting series nobody could stop gushing about. Everybody was hyping "Stranger Things", so naturally I didn't want to watch it. But having to write term papers and having other stuff to do I desperately needed some means of procrastination, so the "I'm not gonna watch this … Continue reading “Stranger Things” on Netflix
