NYC in Film/TV/Books

Before I left for New York, I revisited some of my favourite films, TV shows and books set in The Big Apple. Antes de partir para Nova Iorque, voltei a ver os meus filmes, programas de televisão e livros preferidos passados na Big Apple. Film Home Alone 2 Lost in New York This was the film that made me dream of going to New York one day. I was very young when I first saw it, but it remains one of my favourites, that I can watch anytime – especially when I need a pick me up.  From Kevin’s tour…

Recently I’ve noticed Testament of Youth popping up in the list of films Netflix recommended for me, and after seeing it mentioned at the BAFTAs – where a clip was played to showcase Taron Egerton’s performance as a nominee for the EE Rising Star Award – I was convinced I needed to watch it. Uma das coisas de que mais gosto é encontrar filmes no Netflix dos quais nunca tinha ouvido falar, mas que acabo por adorar. Recentemente reparei…

Mad Max: Fury Road // Mad Max: Estrada da Fúria

source: facebook.com/madmaxmovieuk Mad Max: Fury Road was the first Oscar Best Picture nominee I saw this year, which was fitting given its release date was all the way back in Summer. One thing I have to admit: I am a Mad Max newbie – I was aware of the films, but aside from knowing it was a post-apocalyptic setting, Mel Gibson played Max and Tina Turner had a role, as well as a kick-ass song, in one of the original films, I knew very little. But the reviews were great, and I was very curious. And George Miller, the brilliant…
