What I thought about Inside Out

So last week ( I know I'm behind on my blog updates ) I saw Inside Out. Let me first confess that I'm a huge Disney fan so if I get the chance I see every movie. We also own almost all the Disney movies on dvd, and me and my two girls love to watch the movies.

So when I saw the trailer for this movie I knew I really wanted to see it. I really liked the idea of looking into the mind of a family and just see what they think and feel. So last week I finally got the chance to see the movie.

And to be honest I was really surprised by this movie, I'm not a big Pixar fan. I like the movies but they aren't my favourites. But this one is definitly on my top 5 list for this moment. The storyline is simple but you just get why she feels certain things.

So there are 5 basic emotions in the control room: Sadness, Joy, Anger, Disgust and Fear. They all have there own way of thinking and working together they are the basic emotions of Riley.

Fear made me laugh a lot, he sees the danger in everything. If you ask him to make a list be prepared for a long list.

Anger was another funny one, they way he acts and make Riley act is just really funny.

Disgust is just a teenager, she makes a sarcastic remark about everything.

Joy, I have to say I needed to get used to Joy. I love her but she's so bubbly that I sometimes just wanted to make her stop and sit down for a moment. But she is really the light of the movie.

For me the most awesome character of the movie was Sadness, I just loved her! And let's face it she's kind of the hero of the movie. I love the fact that after everything they've been through Sadness and Happy realise that they need each other to make Riley happy.

There's a lot of humor in this movie, humor that most adults will recognize, but I do believe little children will enjoy this movie as well. They will love joy and the adventures she and Sadness experience.

So yes I really liked this movie and the end credits were so funny, with the busdriver and the cat... If you haven't seen the movie what are you waiting for? Go see it now!

Why I can't watch the series I like on television

I love watching series, there was a time when I could binge watch a whole season but being a mom now this just doesn't work anymore. So the time I have for myself I try to read, watch series, blog and do all the other stuff I want to do. 

Besides the fact that I have less time for myself there's another thing that keeps me away from watching my favourite series: The fact that the only shows they keep airing in the Netherlands are the police shows! NCIS, CSI, The mentalist, Castle they're all the same. 

Everytime they try to introduce a new show here like Once upon a time, Sleepy Hollow, Supernatural it just doesn't get picked up. So to watch the shows I like I have to turn to the internet. We have Netflix here but as it is with a lot of things in the Netherlands they are behind on a lot of shows.

Luckily for me there are two shows I can watch on my tv. The walking dead and Game of thrones we get the new episode just a day after America. So I keep away from twitter and facebook until I've watcheed the episode. But those are the only two shows I can watch on dutch television. 

I'm always wondering why the other shows just didn't last, because I was at Dutch Comic Con this year and there are a lot of people liking the shows I like. So why do we get stuck with all those police shows? 

I do believe a lot of it is about timing, when they aired Supernatural it was on a monday at 23.30 at night. No one is going to watch that on that time! But of course they just thought you know what we'll just stop airing the show because nobody is watching. I believe that there are a lot of dutch people out there that would love to see something else than the police shows. But they just need the right kind of marketing and of course the right time to air it.  

So I watch a lot of my favorite series online, because for me it's the only way to watch them.

Five Fandom Friday: Five spin-offs I would like to see get made

Friday!!! So time for another Five fandom friday, I have to say this one was really hard. I didn't know what to choose but I have an idea now so here is my top five.

1. Charlie in Oz, so in Supernatural season nine we see Charlie go on an adventure with Dorothy in Oz. What happened there? I would love to know!

2. Luna Lovegood, she's my favourite Harry Potter character and I would love to read/see more of her!

3. The story of A. Who is A, what's A doing all day long, how does he/she stalk the girls. I need to know this! So that would be a great show.

4. Black Widow, I don't care if it's going to be a movie or a tv-show this just needs to happen.

5. The men of letter, yes I know I already mentioned Supernatural but this would also be a great show. Knowing how they made the bunker and what they did, how did Henry Winchester become a men of letter, etc. I just need to know this!

So what spin-off would you like to see?

So let's talk about Felicia Day

One of my all time favourite characters in the later Supernatural seasons is Charlie. I just love her character and I feel like Supernatural did something right here. A nerdy girl, but not the stereotype with the really big glasses, the mostly ugly clothes and socially akward.

No Charlie is a geek girl I would love as a best friend, we could talk about Harry Potter and she could teach me to play online RPG's. Yes that sounds just wonderful.

But let's be honest here, Charlie wouldn't be as awesome as she is without Felicia Day portraying her. And after I saw her as Charlie I decided to look her op on IMDB to see what other roles she played. To my surprise I found out she also had a part in Buffy! I'm going to admit here that I still have to watch the episode she's in.

She also starred in her own webseries: The Guild. I've watched all the seasons and I just loved it! And because of the Guild I found out she has her own website, were she plays videogames with her brother and they play table top games and a lot of other amazing things.

She also has a wonderful bookclub called: Vaginal Fantasy. Every month they read two books and at the end of the month there's a live show about the main book. I joined of course I love to find new books.

And then she announced that she wrote a book! About her life and growing up. So I pre-ordered it inmediately. I can't wait to read it!

So who's your favourite geeky woman/girl?

A question for my readers

As many of you I love to read, not a day goes by without me reading. I read mostly fiction books, but now I would like to read more non-fiction books. And not just about anything, I would like to read more about other geek girl, the geek culture, fangirls, I just love to explore that.

So my question for you is what would you recommend? Which book is a must read? I've already read A fangirls guide to the galaxy. But I want to read more! So give me your recommendations, it can be an memoir or just an informative book.

I want to thank you in advance for taking the time to read this en recommend your favourite books.
