Throughout 2022 we shared with you the games we spend our free time with. There are lots of games that we play for leisure, to entertain ourselves and help escape this harsh reality that causes inconvenience to everyone. In different ways, we all deal with similar issues and games are a great escape.
However, we also spend time watching series and movies, from dramas to comedies and of course, animations, something we regularly talk about on our website. Now, to start 2023, we decided to share with you the series, films and animations that we are watching, so that you can get to know us a little more and find out what we are up to.
As with games, the series and movies we watch say a lot about us and the way we like to spend our time. We have very varied tastes and we also like to take a risk and take a look at genres that we usually overlook. We have our favorites and that series that marked us, which also makes us feel like sharing some of the “experiences” that we do, perhaps it would be better to say “risks” that we take.
This is not meant to review a series or movie, just to share what we’ve been watching, without any guilt, but occasionally we can make a recommendation or suggest something. Considering how precious time is, maybe we can even help you with some choices.
Cycling – Eurosport
Once again excited about the cycling competitions that are taking place, namely with Paris-Nice which is being dominated by Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates), but with a fantastic performance of promise for the future, Frenchman David Gaudu (Groupama -FDJ). Don’t forget that this French race features the winner of the Tour of France 2022 Jonas Vingegaard (Jumbo-Visma). Even more closely, I’ve been following the Tirreno-Adriatico, which features our João Almeida (UAE Team Emirates). This Italian race is being dominated by another Slovenian, Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma), closely followed by João Almeida who is just a few seconds away. These two one-week races end today, April 12th, and I would like to highlight the excellent second place that João Almeida will achieve.
There Will Be Blood – TVCine Edition
On the weekend of yet another edition of the Oscars, TVCine has just shown There Will Be Blood (2007), the film by Paul Thomas Anderson, with Daniel Day-Lewis in the lead role. It’s an excellent film and one of those that makes us think about how humans end up selling their souls to the devil, in two ways. One for the tireless search for that dark liquid, the black gold, capable of corrupting by greed, and another in these congregations of faith, of gathering and conquering souls in pain. It’s like a double suffering, concentrated in these two characters, Daniel and Eli. The brutal ending shows us how easily faith is broken. With magnificent performances and impeccable direction, it is easily one of my favorite films of all time.
Physical 100 (Netflix)
I’m almost, almost done with this Korean fitness series. It is a competition in which 100 athletes entered (mostly South Koreans, but there were some foreigners). In the end, after several trials, there is only one left. Looking at the 5 finalists is curious. There were dozens of athletes with more impressive bodies (aesthetically speaking), but as the races went on, it became clear that this mattered little.
Succession (HBO Max)
This week, I finally decided to start Succession, one of the most popular and acclaimed series of recent times. Right now, I’m practically in the middle of the second season, which tells the story of the Roy family, owner of a media empire, and all the problems associated with the management (and succession) of a business of this size. It’s a great series, without a doubt, but probably my expectations were too high and certain moments leave a little to be desired. Either way, it has one of the best opening themes I’ve ever heard!
