“Money Heist” season 4: mixed feelings for fans

Published

on

Movie with Friends

The most popular non-English language series in the world, now also available to watch online for free in Movie 4k. What happened to the most famous gang of thieves in the world? Palermo’s key role, the fear that Gandía imposes and much more in this post.

What happened so far

The premise revolves around the character of Sergio Marquina (The Professor), a mysterious man who planned the robbery at the National Mint and Stamps, which is the greatest theft ever produced.

His objective is to recruit a group of criminals, who have nothing to lose in life, to enter the building and stay inside for several days to get to manufacture 2.4 billion euros.

During the robbery, the kidnappers face situations of all kinds, including love relationships between kidnappers and hostages.

In the third and fourth seasons, the objective of the band is to assault the Bank of Spain to get the gold that is inside the vault.

The unknowns of the third season

The previous delivery of the saga had left Nairobi (Alba Flores) on the verge of death, Lisbon trapped by the police (of which she was part), the latent threat within the Bank of Spain with the head of security, Gandía (José Manuel Poga), and Palermo (Rodrigo de la Serna) in command of a group with which he began to have differences. Many loose ends were left in the last episodes of the third part.

The surprises of season 4

One of the keys to this season is waiting for how the Professor can successfully solve this robbery, which has Nairobi wounded and with the feeling of having lost his love, former agent Raquel Murillo, now Lisbon.

Without spoiling how these topics are resolved, we will talk about the events that gave the most to talk about this new season.

One of the keys to the season is Gandía. This character who, in the first episodes, seemed like a featherweight to Tokyo, Rio, Denver and the rest, turns into a nightmare that they have to deal with. Gandía was the bodyguard of the Governor of the Bank of Spain, one who was clear from the first moment that he should stand up, but the threat posed by Alicia Sierra was distracting. Also, the fact that the security chief was handcuffed and even received a huge beating from Palermo (Rodrigo de la Serna).

If the incorporation of Palermo had been one of the best decisions in the previous season, this one is reaffirmed. His explosive, verbose character and his determinations, which seem to be taken in a hurry, are once again part of the success of his character in these new episodes.

The arrest of Lisbon is another of the central axes of the plot. She knows how detectives act when questioning and how they can make her step on the stick when asked questions that refer to her innermost fibers. And Detective Sierra’s (Najwa Nimri) incisive questions towards her former partner are one of the tensest moments in the series, in which the two women jump with all their intelligence arsenal.

Regarding love, Denver and Stockholm are one of the series’ top and favorite couples. However, in this new installment, he begins to hesitate. Stockholm and Rio have become close friends during the looting of the Bank of Spain and Denver, noticing that his partner is moving away from him, he will try not to lose Stockholm by proving that she is the woman of his life.

Flashbacks

A return to the past is one of the great achievements of Money Heist in general. That journey through time allows viewers to understand how all the unusual situations that may arise are protected within the plan that the Professor, Berlin (Pedro Alonso) and Palermo devised in a not so distant time. It is precisely the brother of the ideologist of the plan, Berlin, who shines again in this season that gives the alter ego to the Professor because he surrenders to the pleasures of life without thereby ceasing to think about the best strategy to carry out the best robbery in the history of Spain.

 

Curiosities of the origins

  1. When they created it, the series had a different name. The original title was “The Evicted”
  2. Álvaro Morte does not really wear glasses since he does not need them
  3. The Tokyo character (Úrsula Corberó) was inspired by Matilda, the babe played by Natalie Portman in The Perfect Killer
  4. Since its premiere, it is the most marathoned series in the world. Even France is one of the countries where it was most successful.

 

After reading this entire post, we recommend you to watch the best non-English language series and enjoy the adrenaline of the most famous robbery story of recent years. Prepare the popcorn and get comfortable.

DIY Bathroom Repairs Everyone Should Know

Published

on

They say “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” but if something is stuck or clogged, one should be on the know-how. Reaching almost a year since quarantine began, people have been spending longer than average locked inside their homes. With this, homes may have experienced more wear and tear than usual, especially bathrooms.

It can be frustrating to feel helpless when dealing with something as tedious as a leaky faucet, a broken toilet, or a clogged drain. Considering this, small do-it-yourself remedies may be resourceful. 

That began said, if challenges are too drastic, larger renovations may be in order. If that is the case, consider commercial bathroom renovations instead. 

For the meantime, these are some nice and easy-to-do remedies than can offer your bathroom a quick fix. 

Uncloging a Bathroom Drain

When taking a shower or washing your hands, having water rise from the drain is the least you would want. Slow bathroom drains are often caused by a build-up of soap-scum and hair. Many resort to using chemical drain cleansers to remedy this; however, these products carry toxic chemicals and can be ineffective at times. 

Instead, use a plastic hair snake. This product resembles a long zip-tie which can bend inside pipes to snag the accumulated gunk.

To begin, remove the drain stopper before inserting the wand. This will require unscrewing and disconnecting the stopper’s horizontal and vertical rods. After doing this, you may finally insert the snake. Once the cleaning process begins, beware: it’ll get gross. As a tip, try to girate or make sweeping motions with the snake in order to grab as much gunk as possible. 

Fixing a Broken Toilet

Dealing with a broken toilet can be a common issue. 

If the toilet won’t flush, check inside the it’s tank. To do so, remove the toilet’s rectangular lid; the lid can be found behind the toilet seat. Look for the chain which connects the flush lever to the plug at the bottom of the tank; the plug is also known as the flapper. If a toilet isn’t flushing, the likeliest answer is that the chain is disconnected from the lever. To resolve this, simply reattach the chain. 

Meanwhile, if water keeps on filling your toilet, it most likely means your toilet is flushing by itself. This isn’t good as it is wasteful. The likeliest reason would be that the toilet has a leaky flapper. To fix this, turn off the water valve from behind/ underneath your toilet. Flush your toilet until emptied. Check the flapper’s size and purchase another flapper. Brands do not matter as long as they match in size. Replace the old flapper with a new one, and voila! 

Replacing a Leaky Faucet

Fixing a leaky faucet often requires replacing the parts inside the handles. To do so, first turn off the hot and cold water valves. Doing this will help prevent any unwanted water geysers from jumping out of the faucet or handles. 

Once you’ve turned off the water valves, check if water is still trickling down. If so, rather than replacing the handles, this means your faucet is in need of a plumber. If it isn’t leaking, you may proceed. 

Pry off the handles and loosen the screws underneath. Once both items are removed, remove the top with an adjustable wrench and pull out all the parts. The best tip is to use needle nose pliers to do this. Head to a home improvement store and ask for help in searching for new replacements. To reassemble, repeat the steps in reverse and test the faucet.

The 8 Best Christmas Movies to Watch with Your Family

Published

on

Movie with Friends

Christmas is the perfect time of year to get together with family and friends and spend as much time as possible with them, but it’s also a time to curl up on the couch and watch those Christmas movies we’ve seen a thousand times. Don’t know which one to choose, though? To inspire you over the next few days, we’ve created a top 8 Christmas movies list to watch with your loved ones during the incoming Christmas holidays. You can easily find them all online in platforms such as movie 4k, Netflix, Hulu or HBO.

Love Actually

One of the most romantic movies of recent times is also one of the most adorable Christmas films, so why not watch or the billionth time? In this movie, director Richard Curtis mixes 10 small love stories that at the beginning do not seem to have anywhing in common, but end up intertwined at the end. Apparently, as he didn’t have them all developed enough to make their own movies, he just left them as optimistic pills. They are very different stories -some euphoric, others tender, others surprising- but all of them to make you grab the handkerchief and want to wish Merry Christmas to the first person you come across.

Serendipity

Some may think that this is one of the most cheesy films in the history of cinema, but there is no denying that the chemistry between Kate Beckinsale and John Cusack is enormous. Serendipity’ is related to chance and the possibility of two people meeting over time and that’s what happens to Jonathan and Sara. The two meet in a department store while looking at a pair of wool gloves; they will connect in such a way that they are going to have a drink and skate to Central Park. When that ‘casual date’ is over, doubts will arise: to exchange the phone or not? To reveal their true identity or not? Destiny will play a key role in them.

Elf

The film follows the story of an abandoned baby who manages to slip into Santa’s sack and ends up at the North Pole. There, he will become one of the elves who help Santa make toys all year round. However, as soon as he learns that he is human, he will go to New York to look for his father. It’s not a masterpiece, but it’s definitely hilarious.

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

A classic among Christmas movies starring 90’s TV stars such as Connie Sellecca, Corbin Bersnen and Cole and Dylan Sprouse. The film shows how little Justin sees his mother kissing Santa Claus -and doesn’t recognize his father in the costume-, and he beleives that his mother’s affair is the prelude to their parents divorce, so he tries to keep Santa far away from the house with his bad behavior.

While you were sleeping

A classic romantic comedy that tells how Lucy, a subway ticket vendor, is in love with a man that she sees every morning catching a train. One day, he accidentlly falls on the track; she rescues him and, for some reason, she ends up pretending to be his girlfriend to his whole family. Everyone receives her with much affection except the brother of the victim, who did not buy her story.

Bridget Jones

A good dose of Bridget Jones never hurts anyone, not even at Christmas, and especially if you choose the first movie of the saga -since the second one wasn’t as good and the third and last wasn’t successful at all. Renée Zellwegger brings to life the most clumsy journalist in history who struggles between two men: Daniel Cleaver or Mark Darcy, an old friend of her family who seems a dull, boring guy, but also charming and caring.

Home Alone

Just in case you missed the huge cultural phenomenon that was John Hughes’ big Christmas movie, it needed to be on this list. Starring Macauly Culkin, it tells the story of a young boy who is forgotten at home when his family leaves to Paris to spend the holidays. While the parents try to come back for him, the boy ends up having to defend his home from thieves who are determined to celebrate their own Christmas party by robbing everything in the house.

It’s a wonderful life

Only a director as skilled as Frank Capra could turn a film about a suicidal man into a Christmas classic. Jimmy Stewart leads the cast as George Bailey, a guy who plans to end it all until an angel named Clarence shows him what his life (and that of all his neighbours in Bedford Falls) would be like without him. In a story taken directly from Dickens, it turns out that George has a much bigger impact than he thought.

Try These Tips out to Simplify Your Everyday Life

Published

on

Everyday life naturally has a way of getting complicated, and spiralling out of control in one way or another.

Especially if you are an ambitious person and want to achieve the most you possibly can in your professional life, while also having a lively and uplifting personal life, it can be very difficult to avoid the experience of being drowned in excessive complexity from time to time.

The thing is, there are many downsides to excessive complexity in your everyday life, ranging from significantly increased stress levels, to a real difficulty with regards to being able to effectively juggle assorted projects and responsibilities.

Try these tips to simplify your everyday life.

Declutter your home and make sure everything has a place

A lot of excess complexity can sneak into your life via a cluttered home, where things just naturally feel overwhelming because of the fact that your mind and attention are constantly drawn to the chaotic nature of your living environment.

There are many different potential benefits to decluttering your home, but one of the key benefits that various home tidying gurus and productivity experts praise about the act of decluttering, is that it helps promote a state of mental tranquillity, focus, and an overall reduced sense of complexity.

So, do what you can to declutter your home and make sure that everything has a place. Contact e-waste recyclers, load bags of clothes to donate to charity shops, and do whatever else you need to do in order to begin simplifying your life and your mindset by simplifying your home environment.

Identify one or two big goals to work towards, and put the rest aside for later

Most of us have all sorts of different dreams, projects, and potential goals that we would hypothetically like to explore and devote our time and attention to, at some point or another over the course of our lives.

Unfortunately, however, trying to juggle too many goals at once is usually a recipe for stress and failure – not to mention a sense of overwhelming complexity, as we are constantly trying to figure out the best way to allocate our time and energy to the various projects we want to make headway on.

One of the best ways of simplifying your life and of focusing your energy, is to identify just one or two big goals to work towards at any given time, and put the rest aside for later.

Do your most important tasks at the start of each day

“Analysis paralysis” is a very real phenomenon, and it tends to occur when we have too many different options at our disposal, and have to try and figure out how best to juggle a variety of factors – such as where to fit in the different tasks and chores that we are committed to each day.

A great simplicity-boosting exercise here is to always do your most important task at the start of each day. That way, everything else is more or less a nice optional extra, and stress decreases dramatically.
