America's Next Top Model Cycle 21 Episode 14 Recap

Very Quick Recap this week. It's the penultimate episode of cycle 21 (already!) and with just five remaining: Shei, Lenox, Will, Keith and Adam, who will make it to the finale? And will it be a double elimination?

So the first challenge this week is an acting challenge, alongside some people from K-drama 'Emergency Couple'. Will doesn't do so well, lacking chemistry with his partner. Adam, who so confidently remembered his lines yesterday, lost most of them and was really twitchy on set. Lenox was a mess. In the end, Keith wins the challenge and lots of sunglasses.

For the photo shoot this week, the theme is Marilyn Monroe/Elvis Presley impersonators which is a wreck. The theme is a mess and the results are poor. Such a shame the contestants had to be judged on this as to whether they make the finale or not! 

Most of them struggle apart from Adam who kills it on set. 

At panel...

Adam 10,9,10
No doubt best performing contestant this week, though not sure the photo really is a 10,10,9. Good for him- securing a first call out, no less.

Shei 7,7,8
Not a bad photo, but not great. Just floating around the middle. Would've liked more face.

 Lenox 8,7,9
Definitely sabotaged. This could not have been her best shot. I mean, check her film- there seems to be so many good and varied moments, and then this comes out? smh. 

Will 7,8,9
This is such a messy photo- not fashion at all... his worst photo? :(

Keith 9,8,7
Another messy photo- looks more comedic than fashion. Energy Kelly? Look at those dead eyes! Biased scoring... rocketing him to second...

In the end, first call out goes to...

'Jurassic World' Film Trailer Preview

Steven Spielberg's 'Jurassic Park' franchise gets a reboot come 2015 when the park reopens for visitors.

Chris Pratt leads the cast as they journey to the island once again after ten years of extensive genetic research, resulting in a dino-hybrid that before we know it, wrecks havoc on the island. Looks to be a gripping and visually stunning film.

'Jurassic World' will be released in June. Check out the trailer below:

'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I' Film Review

The two part finale of The Hunger Games saga begins with a tormented Katniss struggling to align herself to the events of 'Catching Fire'.

With Peeta held captive in the Capitol and used as their 'weapon', Katniss is persuaded at all costs to become the 'Mockingjay', the face of the revolution, in order to respond with their own propaganda, spurring on the other districts to take up arms and fight for freedom.

'The Age of Adaline' Film Trailer Preview

Gossip Girl's Blake Lively stars in the upcoming film 'Age of Adanine', the first trailer of which was released today.

Adaline (Blake Lively) stopped aging after a traumatic accident and this romantic drama deals with her family aging past her, how she lets go and how she puts down her guard to find new love in the form of Nashville's Michiel Huisman. 

Think Benjamin Button. The film will be released in April 2015. Check out the trailer below:

'Cinderella' Film Trailer Preview

Director Kenneth Branagh's latest film will be Disney's 'Cinderella' live action movie starring Cate Blanchett and Helena Bonham Carter.

The classic tale gets revitalised in similar fashion to 'Alice in Wonderland' and 'Snow White and the Huntsman' with Lily James playing the titular role. However, this looks to be a less dramatic affair- no unwarranted battle scenes for once!

Cinderella will be released in March 2015. Check out the trailer below:

Roxanne Emery 'For Weddings and a Funeral' Album Review

Having released numerous EP albums since 2011, Roxanne Emery's debut full length record (announced over a year ago), titled 'For Weddings and a Funeral' has been released for about a week. The album features a number of Emery's most well known tracks as well as a bunch of new songs.


1. Cold Heart
2. Fools Gold
3. Shower The People
4. Daughter
5. High Wire
6. Remember Me
8. River Runs Dry
9. Burning Blue
10. Build a Home
11. LATE (Acoustic)
12. On Fire (Acoustic)

'Cold Heart' delightfully opens the album. As this was the track that first introduced me to Emery, this version is further polished, though I'll always be fond of the acoustic. The album is never overproduced and captures Emery's voice as it is- soft, at times folksy with a mix of pop, giving an acoustic, easy to listen to sound.

America's Next Top Model Cycle 21 Episode 13 Recap

It's GO-See week, one of my favourite challenges of the competition. The guys get paired up as they wish. Will grabs Shei to save himself from having to be paired with Chantelle. Isn't this the exact thing that's causing her to be so defensive. It's like school all over again, where noone wants to be paired with her etc. etc. it certainly won't help her open herself up- guess it's becoming a vicious cycle. 

Will- Shei

Lennox- Adam

Chantelle- Keith

They all decide to head to the furthest one (Resurrection), forcing Keith and Chantelle to change their plans. Chantelle wears her shades the whole time which is super rude and definitely did not book that one. Will is too tall for the client, and they also did not like Shei's eyebrows. 

Lennox seemed to be liked by quite a few of the clients and was given a 10 by Mag and Logan. Adam's too short for many of them and Chantelle too unique.

Back at Nylon Korea, where Lennox and Adam barely makes it back on time.

Shei 2
Will 0
Adam 1
Lennox 4
Keith 4 
Chantelle 1

In the end, Keith wins the challenge, but both him and Lennox gets to walk in the Mag and Logan show at Seoul fashion week.

For the photo shoot, the contestants will be posing alongside Jini Lee and James Joo Hyun Lee, with a palace as back drop, modelling Jinny Kim shoes, the best shot will be an ad campaign.

Adam struggles to begin with but seems to manage a good shot, Keith for once gives a range of poses and actually looked quite good in the shot. Lennox only got like 2 seconds of screen time- but it seemed somewhat awkward. Will struggles with his shoes- better not give him the shoes dont fit, work through the pain- i can see pain in your face responses... but he does well!

Chantelle drama back at the house leads her to 'sleep' in the hallway, but the producers probably ushered her back in for H&S reasons etc etc. it was stupid for her to lie about what she did, worse for Shei to break confidentiality. How is Chantelle going to trust ANYONE ever again!

Also, if you haven't already noticed, the adam alcoholic edit has been superceded, but here's a gentle reminder (they showed this picture like three times in the past two eps!)

At panel...

Keith 9,9,10
Didn't think this would be his best shot, but it's not bad. 

Lennox 8,8,10
Ok photo, not amazing, definitely not a 10. 

Adam 8,7,9
Strong shot, quite nice

Shei 7,9,8
Good body, not keen on the face, good product placement.

Chantelle 7,6,8
Stiff body, face could be softer. Awkward shot.

Will 8,8,10
I like this shot.

Overall, didnt really like this shoot- no real stand out photos... pretty sure Chantelle is going. hopefulyl anyway. Keith to get another first call out urgh.

First call out goes to...
