'Spider Man: Homecoming' Film Review

It was a rare cinematic moment when the collaboration between Marvel Studios and Sony meant that we could see the friendly neighbourhood hero Spider Man debut in the MCU in Captain America Civil War, with Tom Holland, playing an even younger version than we've seen before. 

Continuing such collaboration in Marvel's Phase 3, Spider Man Homecoming is yet another retelling or reboot of the Spider Man story in what could be another attempt at a trilogy with Holland in the lead. With the reputation of Marvel backing these new Spidey films, success would seem inevitable, but I still felt something was missing from the film.

Returning home from the events of Civil War, Peter Parker (Holland) is thrilled to have been a part of the Avengers, and under the mentorship of Tony (Downey Jr) and Happy (Favreau), expects to be part of more missions soon. But when he is told to keep a low profile, Parker is determined to prove himself by investigating a mysterious group crafting and selling alien weapons.

'The Greatest Showman' Film Trailer Preview

After the success of La La Land, the next big musical appears to be 'The Greatest Showman'.

Starring Hugh Jackman as P.T. Barnum, the musical film tells the story of a man who 'rose from nothing' to provide for his family through the invention of showbusiness. 

The film also stars Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Zac Efron and Zendaya. Whilst the trailer doesn't give too much away in terms of the music, there is certain to be drama and a spectacle.

'The Greatest Showman' will premiere this December. Check out the trailer below:

'Wonder Woman' Film Review

DC hasn't really gotten things right in the past couple of years, but being the one to release the first female led Super Hero franchise is gaining them the right sort of attention.

First introduced in the messy Batman VS. Superman, Gal Gadot stars as Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman, and being the MVP of that film, led to the fast track of her own solo franchise.

Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman is a much more light hearted affair, with a regular touch of humour that feels very familiar to the Marvel films. Though tied back to the DC universe through its opening and closing scenes, it is very much its own movie.

India Gants in PAPER Magazine Summer 2017

The images from India's winning spread for PAPER magazine has been released. Shot by Charlotte Rutherford, Gants wears Versace, Hugo Boss and Moschino. 

Since winning the latest edition of Top Model on VH1, India is signed to Ford Models, and wishes to work as a proper fashion model rather than a reality TV star. Let's hope she manages to book some big campaigns soon.

Check out the images below:

Favourite AsNTM Contestants Per Cycle

I did this with America's Next Top Model, and now with that gone, and this being my new favourite NTM, it's only fair that I do a post for Asia's too! With another season of Asia's Next Top Model underway, let's have a  look at my favourite contestants from the past Season

AsNTM 1: Helena Chan, Hong Kong
Whilst she wasn't the best editorial model on the show, the combination of smarts, personality and with two first call outs and numerous challenge wins got her to the top 6, till she was rather unfairly eliminated. She was never afraid to voice her opinion or express them facially and was definitely the stand out entertainer this season.

AsNTM 2: Katarina Rodriguez, Philippines
This season was a toughie. It was difficult to really root for anyone... but I guess my favourite would have to be Katarina, who quietly rose to the top 4, but only really emerged as a potential contender at the end. 

AsNTM 3: Aimee Cheng Bradshaw, Singapore

Aimee is so far my favourite Asia's Next Top Model contestant ever. Her combination of humour and wits make her the funniest to have participated on the show. Her fresh look and glowing personality allowed her to soar to the top 3, and could have easily taken the prize was it not for the judges' view on her weight. She's since done numerous nationwide campaigns for Neutrogena, appeared in ELLE Style and walked a range of fashion shows.

AsNTM 4: Jessica Barta Lam, Hong Kong
A second girl from Hong Kong makes it onto my favourites list! Jessica was definitely underrated and eliminated prematurely. Since competing on the show, she has walked for New York Fashion Week and starred in a Estee Lauder commercial.

AsNTM5: Shikin Gomez, Malaysia

Shikin has consistently performed throughout the competition, and cemented her place as a favourite after many other (maybe more obvious favourites such as Layla and Dorothy) left the competition prematurely. Nonetheless, she is a strong all rounder, performing well in both motion editorial and editorial. Although she didn't win, she definitely deserved to as she outperformed the other two in the final episode.

'Detroit: Become Human' Game Preview

From the developers of Beyond Two Souls and Heavy Rain, comes a new title revolving around an android revolution.

'Detroit: Become Human' follows the story of Kara and Markus, two androids looking to free the rest of their kind, interlaced with the story of Connor, a cybernetically enhanced police officer, tasked with dealing with deviant androids.

With hopefully a complex choice tree and a compelling story, this looks to be a gripping narrative experience.

The game has yet to receive a release date, but check out the trailer below:
