The film poster is a big deal. The poster, along with the trailer, is our first interface with a film. That’s why the art department in a film production is possibly one of the most important; grabbing the attention, creating the atmosphere and setting the audience’s mood, establishing the initial expectations. That’s what film posters do. It’s a medium for the film’s promotion, and since representation and appearance matter so much, it has to be compelling.
We collected the most eye-catching film posters, not just of recent years but also older and classic ones, that in our opinion stand out and make the rest art directors wanna step up their game a little. The order is absolutely random. Let us know what you think and share your choices in the comments below!

The next instalment of our travel stories is sunny and unexpectedly pleasant! On the 1st of May, and since the day dictates it, it was time for a road trip. We packed our lunch, ironed our checkered tablecloth, put our ‘on the road’ playlist on and hit the road! Road tripping with your best friends can be a great experience, even if the place you are headed is not as good as expected eventually. But imagine reaching your destination and voilà!- it is better than anticipated. Nothing beats that!
This is the case with our road trip to Loutraki and Vouliagmeni Lake. If you stay in Athens and are in the mood for a quick getaway- this is the place for you! Approximately an hour from Athens, easily reached and with breathtaking natural scenery including the impressive Isthmus Canal, we say: just do it!

How do you cure wanderlust if you have no plans to travel anytime soon? Or you have no money for the foreseeable future? No. You don’t google places and go through pictures of dreamy destinations. That’s lazy. You just pick a destination and let the music do the work. All you have to do is use your imagination. Thanks to some insightful people who have created beautiful songs about cities and the emotions each of them have inspired to them.

Madrid is a sparkling gem standing in the middle of the Iberian Peninsula. It’s a place full of history and culture, full of cosmopolitan air and a bustling dining scene and nightlife.
A few weeks ago, Angie and I spent a few days in the Spanish capital and through endless strolling and eating (of course!) got to indulge this beautiful many-faced place. So, lay back and let us take you to the places we went and the things we saw, thanks to Angie’s amazing photography!

The Academy Awards, or -as most of us call them – the Oscars, are probably the most hyped award show of the year. Apart from the obvious buzzing around the films, the filmmakers, producers, and actors with their performances, the focus is always on the presenter’s jokes, the red carpet with the sartorial choices of the ladies and the acceptance speeches. Every year, around the end of February we get to participate in a fancy and well-groomed world that usually resides in our imaginations only. So let’s see what’s on the menu this year for the main categories and who we think will make it to dessert!
Actress in a Supporting Role:
This is one of the most competitive categories of this year’s awards with astounding performances by all nominees. Nicole Kidman was unrecognizable in Lion, Naomi Harris was intense in Moonlight, and Michelle Williams was heart-breaking in Manchester by the Sea. But. Viola Davis in Fences is unbeatable. It takes her just one scene to bring chills down your spine with her immense power and the way she translates words into emotions.

Let us take you back to song covers! We have some business left unfinished. Some artists that appeared in our first list get to be in this second one as well, because let’s face it, they are stunning at ‘covering’ (I see you London Grammar and Bastille!). Without further ado, here is the second part of covers that we love the most. Enjoy!
London Grammar- Nightcall (Kavinsky)
