As someone who’s inhaled every season of Netflix’s The Crown, I’m on the fence with Spencer. On the one hand, I’m really excited to see how Kristen Stewart handles playing Diana Spencer. On the other, Emma Corwin really set the bar high with her Emmy Nominated Performance. According to Neon, the film is a reimagining of a Christmas Dinner weekend where Diana’s affair with Dodi Fayed (Exec. Producer of F/X & Chariots of Fire), and Prince Charles’ affair with Camilla Bowles possibly come to light. Makes for an interesting holiday get together.
Spencer also starts Jack Farthing(Love Wedding Repeat), Timothy Spall (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street), Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water), Sean Harris (The Green Knight)
The trailer for Jane Campion’s The Power of the Dog is here and I couldn’t be more excited!
Having recently read the Tomas Savage-authored novel that this film is based on, I have to say that the trailer perfectly captures the story’s ominous atmosphere. Kirsten Dunst appears to be the perfect choice for Rose and, though I had some doubts when the casting was announced, Benedict Cumberbatch appears to be properly menacing and charismatic in the role of Phil.
Jesse Plemons isn’t really highlighted in this trailer but I think he might be the actor who walks away with the most acclaim. The role of George Burbank feels like it was written for Plemons. I can’t wait to see what he does with it.
The Power of the Dog will soon premiere on Netflix! Judging by the trailer, it may be one worth seeing on the big screen.
On August 1st, 1980, MTV premiered. Over the course of that day, they played over 160 unique music videos. The 26th video that they played was the video for Rod Stewart’s Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?
Actually, it would be more appropriate to say that they tried to play it. MTV’s first broadcast day was not without its technical problems. When they first tried to play the video, only the audio was heard. There was no picture. After 27 seconds of this, MTV moved on to another video. They would again attempt to play Rod Stewart’s infamous hit later in the day, this time with success.
In defense of this song, it’s apparently not meant to be taken seriously. Stewart and co-writer Duane Hitchings have both said the song was meant to be a spoof on disco. The spoof, of course, went on to become the song that Stewart arguably remains best known for.
