2017: ATX TV Fest Sneaky Pete Panel Recap


Original series Sneaky Pete became Amazon’s second-most-streamed show on an opening day, a feat that has only been accomplished by one other Amazon show The Man in The Castle. Amazon immediately green-lit season two as the reviews kept rolling in. For such a popular show, it’s hard to imagine its rocky start before finding a home at Amazon.

Showrunner Graham Yost sat down with ATX Television Festival June 9 to discuss the move to Amazon and working with the streaming giant in today’s era of Peak TV before sharing a few details about season two.  Continue reading

My Cousin Rachel Is A Gothic Delight From Typical Summer Fare

With the current success and popularity of action flicks, My Cousin Rachel is a nice depart from the constant onslaught of blockbuster giants going head to head at the box office as they compete for fans money and attention with action packed sequences littered with a litany of juvenile jokes and other filler content alongside sometimes poorly conceived plots.

Based on the novel written by British author Daphne du Maurier, this film was first adapted in 1952 by Henry Koster much to the dissatisfaction of Maurier who felt the film was unfaithful to her original work. Although Maurier has since passed, many critics find director Roger Michell’s new adaptation more in nature with the tale, allowing some of Maurier’s more gothic undertones to come to life in his film. My Cousin Rachel centers on Phillip who has just finished college and is set to inherit his cousin Ambrose’s entire estate as the sole heir to his surrogate father’s wealth.

My Top Looks from 2017 Coachella

coahcellla

In what once started out as a fairly secluded haven for music lovers, Coachella has now grown to become more of a backdrop for celebrities, athletes and bloggers alike to snap one for the ‘gram while decked out in the latest spring fashion. Floral hair crowns were replaced by dad hats and gladiator sandals swapped out for branded sneakers.

Off-the-shoulder looks, slogan tees, platform and bralettes were in galore….some of the hottest looks in fashion right now. As this festival has gained more mainstream recognition, A-list stars are deigning upon themselves to make an appearance, giving us plenty to look forward to over the stretch of two days, April 14 to 16.

2017 Cannes Festival

cannes

The 2017 Cannes Festival lineup has officially been announced — featuring a slew of indie selections and two films from Netflix. A surprising …is the omission of films from any major studios.

I am most excited to see Director Boon Joon Ho fantasy film Okja that is expected to hit Netflix in June. Okja follows Mija, a young young girl who risks everything to prevent a powerful, multi-national company from kidnapping her best friend, a massive animal named Okja.

The festival will also contain a virtual reality work by Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu titled  “Flesh and Sand,” that the filmmaker produced alongside cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki.

The festival is scheduled to run May 18 – 27. Read the rest of the line-up here. Who do you think will walk away with the Palme d’Or?

Margo Price, Country’s Rising Star

So00, as an intern at a local publication I got to interview Margo Price, country’s latest rising star, prior to her performance at Willie Nelson’s Fourth of July Picnic at the Circuit of Americas.

I had an absolutely great time speaking with Margo (she has just went to bed at 1am to turn around for 9am interview, whew!)
