Peek behind the scenes of 'Twin Peaks' (2017)

I try not to get too excited about 'Twin Peaks' coming back next year because it's one of my favourite shows and i would hate to find myself disappointed about it. So i tried not to give any news about it too much attention, that's why i totally missed this peek behind the scenes of the filming of the David Lynch iconic show. And damn, now i'm super excited.

Actors like Kyle MacLachlan, Miguel Ferrer and others from the show talk about how they learnt the news of original creators Lynch and Mark Frost getting everyone together for a reboot and they telling that 'There's nothing like it' and how everyone will be surprised makes me anxious and so glad that they're bringing the show back.

There's no exact date for the shows' premiere, late 2017 it's what we know so far, and the waiting is gonna be long after seeing clips like this. Watch the sneak peek and get excited about 'Twin Peaks' coming back next year. It's happening again.

Living life the Marie Antoinette kind of way

In honor of the iconic movie 'Marie Antoinette' turning 10 years old last week, i'm dedicating a post to some inspired or influential images that evoke the prettiness that was the Sofia Coppola movie.

There's no denying that even though you liked the movie or not, it certainly inspired many ad campaigns and photoshoots with that mixture of the aristocratic18th century style but adapting it to modern times, and the result is always delightful. So, after the cut, i'm adding a bunch of images that follow the Marie Antoinette lifestyle and why, i might forget some obvious choices but feel free to suggest them to me and enjoy!


10 years of Sofia Coppola's 'Marie Antoinette'

The somehow controversial at the time 'Marie Antoinette' turned 10 years old last week, and while it might not be Sofia Coppola's finest work, it certainly is her last good movie to me. I'm not saying that 'Somewhere' or 'The Bling Ring' are bad, but compared to her first two movies, 'The Virgin Suicides' and 'Lost in Translation', they seem kinda weak, and even, forgettable. Don't get me wrong, I'm a true Coppola fan, but those two last movies didn't reach me as the first ones, and 'Marie Antoinette' is kinda in the middle of that.

Sofia Coppola's portrayal of the infamous queen was very much awaited by everyone, especially by me, and it has grown on me with time. Noone can deny that this movie is a wrapped up candy and everything looks delightful, from the exquisite clothes, to the astonishing setting in Versailles, to the candy (I want candy!), and the introduction of modern music in a period film was somehow groundbreaking in cinema –even though Baz Luhrman kinda did that in 'Moulin Rouge' but adapting the music to the period. Also, Coppola added another modern touch by introducing a pair of Converse sneakers during a scene which many thought was a mistake, but it was appropriately placed to convey that mixture of a modern queen that was very much into fashion at the time. And while i referred to this movie as her last good one, as i don't adore it as much as her two films as previously said, i like it because it's eye candy (pun intended) to watch and i kinda feel reflected in the frivolity at times of using parties and material things to fulfill the boredom and dullness.

So, the movie turns 10 years old and as i'm waiting for her upcoming film, the remake of 'The Beguiled', we can take a look at some of the most beautiful stills of the movie, as always, after the cut.


'Crisis in Six Scenes' and 'Divorce's pilots

While other times i've been excited about Fall season and all the new shows premiering, this year there only had been two shows that have caught my attention, for obvious reasons. First, Woody Allen's show 'Crisis in Six Scenes' which i've already talked about it, and Sarah Jessica Parker's return to tv with 'Divorce'. So, i've finally been able to watch both pilots and here are my two cents:

'Crisis in Six Scenes' first episode is not all that much, i agree with many that it seemed kinda weak, but it looks promising and it happens to me that, with anything Woody Allen does, i always like to watch it because there's a familiarity about it and i love his characters. Also, Miley Cyrus hasn't even appeared so i'm sure she will be the surprise of the show and will bring a lot of life to the plot. So, i'm going to binge-watch this as soon as possible.

And what about 'Divorce'? i was less excited about it, only watching for Sarah Jessica Parker, but i quite liked the pilot. Molly Shannon is also on the show which is always a bonus and the series looks good though i don't see it lasting long when it comes to a second season but i hope to be proven wrong. But i really missed seeing SJP on tv.

So, have you watched any other new shows? i guess i will also give 'Westworld' a watch but let me know if there are other new shows worth watching.

'Jackie' teaser

There has been much buzz about 'Jackie', the world's most famous widow biopic starring Natalie Portman and directed by Pablo Larraín. And while i usually loathe biopics because they tend to be the most boring thing, the teaser of this movie has really gotten me interested. And why? because this doesn't look like your average Academy Awards oriented biopic, even though i'm sure it will get lots of nominations, but this looks a little more than that. More thrilling, dark, twisted and going deep into Jackie Kennedy's tragic moments, such as the killing of her husband in front of her eyes and the  whole world. And with Natalie Portman tastefully cast for the role, it can't do no wrong. I might be fooled and this won't be as good as it looks but i will definitely watch and also because i've heard really good things about Chilean director Larraín and his previous movie 'El club', which i haven't seen but i want to badly.

Watch the teaser of 'Jackie' below and a few of the beautiful images of the movie after the cut.


15 years of 'Beautiful Garbage'

I remember when Garbage's third album 'Beautiful Garbage' came out in 2001, i was spending three weeks in Dublin attending an English course, and somehow it always reminds me to that brief period of my life where i was really happy. And while the record didn't fascinate me as much as their previous two albums, 'Garbage' and 'Version 2.0.', with time it has gotten better and better.

Anyway, as i did with the perfection that is still to this day 'Version 2.0.', i'm dedicating a post to 'Beautiful Garbage', because, i feel, it's Garbage's last good album, at least to their good old self. Songs like 'Silence is Golden', 'Cup of Coffee', 'Breaking Up the Girl', 'Nobody Loves You', 'Drive You Home' or everyone's favourite 'Cherry Lips' are among my favorite songs ever from the band, and while they released 'Androgyny' and 'Shut Your Mouth' as singles, i thought that was a total mistake because those were the weakest songs from the album in my opinion.

But well, this little underrated jewel is turning 15 and i loved how it has grown on me with time, so give it a listen because Garbage doesn't have only two good records, it has, at least, these three:


Sugar for Sugar's 'Bizarre Love Triangle'

Remember the band The Singles? Scarlett Johansson's female band that released the super catchy hit song 'Candy'? Well, they had problems with copyright over the name and the band sort of faded away but now they're back – minus Este Haim which is totally a shame. They're recorded a charity single for amfAR that it's a cover of New Order's 'Bizarre Love Triangle' no less, and while this song has been covered a million times, it sounds really good.

The Singles was previously produced by TV on the Radio Dave Sitek so let's hope he's also on board in Sugar for Sugar along with Johansson, Holly Miranda, Julia Haltigan and Kendra Morris and that they released even more music material because i'm loving anything coming out of them so far.

Listen to 'Bizarre Love Triangle' below!


Tom Ford's 'Nocturnal Animals' trailer

The trailer of Tom Ford's second film 'Nocturnal Animals' has been released and little did i know about this project. I think i speak for everyone when absolutely everybody with exquisite taste was wowed with his debut feature 'A Single Man' starring Colin Firth. What a movie. Not only the photography was a beautiful moving portrait but the story, the acting, all those feelings were superb so now i'm really excited about this new movie.

While 'A Single Man' was more reflection and little action did happened (which was not bad at all), in 'Nocturnal Animals' we get a little more adrenaline than that by looking at the trailer and the story is intriguing so i already can't wait. Starring Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal this looks like a good old thriller with a bunch of secrets and mystery and again, the photography looks absolutely gorgeous and dark so i hope the story is as capturing as Ford's debut was. Watch the trailer below.

Kendall Jenner in Vogue Spain

Kendall Jenner scored her 5th Vogue cover this month proving that she's a solid model now, and why wouldn't she be? She's got all the perfect features for it. Of course, she's related to the Kardashians and is very much one but ever since we started seeing her in 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' at a very young age, you could tell she was made for it.

So, she's gorgeously posing for the September issue of Vogue Spain shot by Miguel Reveriego and playing ballerina, and that caused a very heated stir among dancers around just because she's not, and who really cares? It's not that she's claiming to be a ballerina or anything, any girl looking like that looks super pretty so people should just relax. I'm guessing as she's a Kardashian she's more keen to be criticized but this is stupid.

Anyway, i loved this shoot and she looks gorgeous on it, so check out some of my fave pics after the cut.


'Crisis in Six Scenes' trailer

Just the other day we got to see the first stills of 'Crisis in Six Scenes', Woody Allen's much awaited television project and now we're getting a trailer. And while it looks like good old Allen and that might sound like outdated or kinda repetitive, there's something about his work that never feels old. Because in here we get to see the typical Woody characters, like the Jewish uptight couple and their friends, a therapist, some outcast like Miley Cyrus' character and the usual comic tone that he's so praised about. And still, it looks fantastic and adorably familiar.

'Crisis in Six Scenes' will start streaming on Amazon on September 30 and i already can't wait so take a look at the trailer to get as excited as i did.
