'Picnic at Hanging Rock' series trailer

The 'Picnic at Hanging Rock' movie is one of the most enigmatic and haunting films that served as inspiration to Sofia Coppola's 'The Virgin Suicides', so it's a must-watch. It's a simple but twisted film that really gets inside of you and makes you wonder what happened on that Valentine day in 1975.

Now, we can wonder the same thing from a different point of view, as the Joan Lindsay novel is being adapted for TV. Starring the gorgeous and enormously talented Natalie Dormer, the show looks intriguing and i really can't wait for May to come and see if it has the same creepy vibe as the original film. In the meantime, check out the trailer below and get haunted by this story and if you haven't seen the movie, it's about time.

'Dawson's Creek's 20th Anniversary Reunion


I didn't wanna miss posting these great photos of the 'Dawson's Creek' reunion, could i? This fantastic spread came out a few weeks ago on Entertainment Weekly and i simply loved all the pics. And it's seems like yesterday that we were watching Dawson and Joey analyzing their whole entire teenage era but it's been 20 years already.

I was a really huge fan of the Capeside kids, meaning that i followed their show really bad. I couldn't miss a thing and i loved their mature drama for their age. It's funny because back then i hated Joey and loved Jen, and now, as i'm re-watching the show all over again–and i've never have watched it once ever since it ended, things seem so different. I'm only up to Season 2 but now i understand Joey a lot more while i find Jen really boring with her continuous bad girl drama. I like Pacey a lot as well, while i think Dawson is the worst on the show, that hasn't changed. But it's interesting to see it now in my thirties, when back then i was their same age.

I'm surely going to make a post about 'Re-watching 'Dawson's Creek' 20 years later' as i did with 'The OC', or recently with 'Melrose Place', but in the meantime enjoy these gorgeous photos as i loved them all, especially that last shot of Michelle Williams with Busy Philipps, who was also one of my truly faves on the show.

70th Annual Academy Awards 2018



Long time no see, huh? The thing is that i've been on hiatus because i have this big test coming up in a few months and i had to really focus on it, but i've missed posting some things here and the specials i used to do so i'm taking a little bit of time to it. I will be catching up with some old news like the Academy Awards that i couldn't miss and also be posting some new stuff, so this blog is not over.

And about the Academy Awards this year i have to say that they were kind of satisfactory as the overrated 'Get Out' didn't get the Best Picture Award as i thought it would (i'm sorry but despite the message that lies within the movie, it didn't fascinate me that much). This year my absolute favorite was obviously 'Call Me By Your Name' because that film really mesmerized me, and out of the three noms it received, it got the Best Adapted Screenplay award which was really great. Another favorite of mine that really blew my mind and i didn't expect that was Paul Thomas Anderson's 'Phantom Thread' which was really exquisite and twisted and only got Best Achievement in Costume Design which was highly deserved but i would had given them Best Actor for the farewell performance of Daniel Day Lewis and Best Director. Another movie that was brilliant was 'Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri' with a stellar performance from Frances McDormand that obviously got the award for Best Actress. Sam Rockwell got Best Supporting Actor and he did good but i loved way more Woody Harrelson's heartbreaking performance on that film as he was also nominated in that category. And my other favorite that only got one nomination was the super cute, real and tender 'The Florida Project' with Willem Dafoe also nominated as Best Supporting Actor. This movie deserved more credit, as it did director Sean Baker for 'Tangerine', but well things are like this.

And now, about the red carpet, this year they really put on some really pretty and amazing dresses! Starting with gorgeous Lupita Nyong'o in Atelier Versace and Danai Gurira in Gabriella Hearst (above) the best looks from the night. Don't miss the rest after the cut!

'Heathers' TV Pilot


(Spoiler free!)
I've already talked about 'Heathers' reboot of the 1988 cult classic and how everything looked good though i didn't have too many expectations out of it. So, the pilot is out now and let me tell you it was... fuck me gently with a chainsaw, it was fantastic!

For a starters, the first few minutes of the show are, without giving away any detail, simply amazing for all those who loved the original Winona Ryder film, and from that on, it continues with the good. The show takes a lot from the movie but it has its own personality. Obviously, it's adapted to modern times but it mainly contains all the elements from the killer film: the Heathers, the lost girl, the tortured love interest. And while at first it seems that the plot leads the same path that followed the movie, there's a nice twist that makes everything better. And that's all i can say without revealing too much.

'Heathers' looks promising, and for those who miss 'Scream Queens' this is definitely a nice show to fill the void with (it even has the same background music). And the 'Mean Girls' lovers will also love it because of the bitchiness of the terrific Heathers and all the pop culture references –that Khloe Kardashian quote really won me over. It has a lot from the original flick, a little bit of 'Scream Queens', 'Mean Girls' and even 'Jawbreaker, so be sure to start watching this show because, isn't it just?

Gucci's Year of The Dog Collection photographed by Petra Collins

 Gucci has decided to celebrate the New Chinese Year and what better way to do so than to dedicate the 'Year of the Dog' collection with a campaign of hounds and pooches as the models? And who better to photograph them than Petra Collins? Exactly.

The collection is absolutely a treat for dog lovers, as it features some breeds of the clothes and accessories, and as it is a limited edition they better hurry up.

As for the photos, i really loved some of the photographs as i'm a dog lover myself, and i always like the different editorial vibe that Collins gives to her shots, so obviously i had to post these. Check a few more after the cut!

'Heathers TV' Trailer

The reboot of the chick flick classic 'Heathers' into a TV show didn't sound too good at first, but the first trailer is out and it looks real good. It has 'Mean Girls' vibes all over and a bit of touch of the 80s film, and the fact that original Heather is on it as well (Shannen Doherty) makes it all way better. It also has Selma Balir playing one of the Heathers' moms so this can't get any better unless Winona Ryders would make a cameo on it. Also, the fact that they changed the Heathers from three girls to two chicks and a boy it's really something great as it diversifies more the original iconic gang.

The killer reboot premieres on March 7th so let's hope it doesn't disappoint because i love a good highschool dramedy and this one looks badass. Beware of the traielr because it's kinda spoilerish.

Remembering Dolores O'Riordan with 'No Need To Argue'

The news of the sudden death of Dolores O'Riordan, frontwoman of iconic band The Cranberries, shocked everyone who loved the band. Aged 46, she was extremely young which makes it even more sad, while the cause of the death is still unknown to us. But when an artist dies it's his or her art that prevails so at least we have her voice to remember.

When i grew up i loved 'No Need To Argue' and still to this day is one of my favorite albums, so i'm dedicating a post to it because i think it was her greatest work with the Irish band. Because there's no bad song in the entire album, from the smash hit 'Zombie' to full of energy 'I Can't Be With You' to more melodic or in depth songs like 'Empty' or 'Twenty One'. And how to forget the touching 'Ode To My Family', this album is simply perfection from beginning to end.

So, below you can listen to the whole album but after the cut i've added some of my personal favorites that i've mentioned before. Of course, the band has a bunch of other great songs like 'Animal Instinct', 'Dreams', 'Just My Imagination' or so on but this album really made an impact on my teens, so there you have it.

'Black Mirror' ranking all episodes

(Updated with Season 4 episodes - First published on Dec 12, 2016)
Well, i'm finally on the 'Black Mirror' boat and i've binge-watched the whole show in two weeks, and gotta admit you were all right, it's good. And as i've talked about my fave episode, 'Nosedive', it's time to rank them all in my not so humble opinion, always.

So, below i'm listing all the eps, beginning with the ones i liked a lot and ending with the ones i liked less, that is from best to worst. Let's begin!

(Spoilers!)
3x01 Nosedive
I've already talked about it, and having watched the rest, and especially 'San Junipero' -everyone's favorite, 'Nosedive' remains my favorite. Maybe because i didn't expect nothing from it and it amazed me. And because it was wonderful, obviously.


3x04 San Junipero
I liked this ep, i have a heart, but maybe you all talked about it way too much so i expected a lot. And it was beautiful but the hype was too high even though i adored that it's the only episode that has a happy ending. Well sort of. And who doesn't want to end up in  San Junipero for the rest of eternity with their loved ones? I found that it was such a beautiful idea that i can't stop thinking about it. And maybe i have another ep that it's my #1 but this one is so close, so, so close it's practically a tie.


1x01 The National Anthem
Maybe this will surprise many as i've seen that the pilot of the show does not rank high on other people's lists but i actually liked it a lot. Maybe because it was the first one but i loved the idea and the criticism it made of society and the morbid fascination of the viewers no matter what. Something so present nowadays it's sad.

More behind the cut!

L'Oréal Elvive commercial starring Winona Ryder and directed by Roman Coppola

 Winona Ryder beautifully stars in the latest L'Oréal Elvive commercial directed by Roman Coppola and it's really gorgeous to see.

Since we don't get to see her face, only the stunning weave, i thought it was Natalie Portman at first, but it's Winona graciously getting ready for a play while her hair looks perfect and beautiful. The logo of the campaign is "Everyone loves a comeback" and that's so accurate when it comes to her as she being back in 'Stranger Things' really put her back on the spotlight. Some have criticized the comparison between her career and damaged hair, but it's just a pun and it's not bashing the actress at all.

Watch the gorgeous commercial below.

Top 13 David Bowie songs

This is just heartbreaking, as many of you probably know, legendary artist, singer, songwriter and actor David Bowie has passed away at the age of 69. His birthday was just three days ago and his loss is something indescribable to everyone who loved his music. And his voice... if there's something i always miss when i lose someone close is that i will never get to hear their voices again and it's something that always strikes me and in this case, when it's someone you've been listening ever since you were a kid, it's something tragic.

Inevitably, i'm making a top 12 of my most favourite songs from him, i'm not going to rank them as they're all fantastic and maybe the ones i'm putting are the obvious choices and others are not the most acclaimed ones, but i grew up seeing him in 'Labyrinth' and as it remains one of my favourite movies there you have them. Seriously, what a loss. Check out the rest after the cut.
