Songs By Which We Will Remember 2017 – Best Of The Best

Songs By Which We Will Remember 2017 - Best Of The Best

This is the list of songs that will keep 2017 in your memory, and it was a year of good music! Maybe you already have them on repeat, so here is the list of the best ones before radio stations begin playing some new ones in years to come.

In the beginning, there was…

  1. Shape of you – Ed Sheeran (January 6th)

Although this hit was involved in controversy because some of it had been proclaimed a copy of the TLC 1999 No Scrubs song, Ed Sheeran’s version has been more successful – it has almost 3 billion views on Youtube.

  1. Chained to the rhythm – Katy Perry (February 10)

This song was a reaction to Trump’s victory at the presidential election in 2016 and, although it sounds like a typical dance/pop hit, actually brings a well-thought-out text.

  1. It is not me – Kygo ft. Selena Gomez (February 16th)

With this hit, Selena started one of her most successful years in the music world. It is about a relationship that has been destroyed due to alcoholic preference and has an enduring message.

With spring it came…

  1. Despacito – Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee ft. Justin Bieber (April 16th)

This simply had to be summer hit – the Latin rhythm in combination with dance sound and Bieber as a guest artist.. confess, you started singing it.

  1. There’s nothing holding me back – Shawn Mendes (April 20th)

The hottest musician from this year’s awarding of the European MTV awards has won the prize (among others) and the best song – just this one.

 Justin Bieber ft. Bloodpop

And then there was the glory.

  1. Friends – Justin Bieber ft. Bloodpop (August 17)

Belieber came to his own – he was reportedly again with Selen Gomez (at least intensified his relationship), and all began after her kidney transplantation and the release of this song.

  1. Look what you made me do – Taylor Swift (August 25)

The drama around her album ‘Reputation’ began with the release of this song, but also before her disappearance of Taylor from the social network. In 2017, she began a new era of her life, and we still meet the horrible and drastic, even the zealous Taylor! But this song has kept quite a while on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

Anger, Hatred, And Drama – This Is The Worst Celebrity Quarrel In 2017

Anger, Hatred, And Drama - This Is The Worst Celebrity Quarrel In 2017

Drama, drama and then a little bit more of drama – if something in 2017 did not falter then that was celebrity quarrels. From quarrels via Twitter and other social networks, to spitting over the media, these celebs did not hesitate to publicly state what they think about their rivals. And while in some cases the fans spurred chaos where it was not there, their comments, in other cases, did not require any help to spread a furious discussion among colleagues with whom they were completely okay yesterday. So let’s take this moment to recall all the battles that broke out in the year that is behind us.

Marilyn Manson Vs. Justin Bieber

The old metalworker and seducer of the music industry have argued about a reason that is still unclear to us. Namely, the boys clung to the T-Shirts.

Justin Bieber Vs. Selena Gomez

Can we count at all how many times in the past year they secretly walked, battled, they were on the move and rushed away, calmed down and acted like friends, and again came together again, and again they broke…

Chrissy Teigen Vs. Shawn Mendes vs. everybody ever

Since she put her modeling career aside to devote to motherhood, John Legend’s wife spends a lot of time-fighting on Twitter. There was that silly and unnecessary quarrel, or more poisonous subversion of Shawn Mendes because both John and Shawn were nominated for the best man in the choice of GQ magazine.

Fifth Harmony Vs. Camila Cabello

The girls did not put well the fact that Camila decided to leave them. After a couple of bad comments on this subject they leaked out, the girls refused to give interviews with Camilla, and the world will not forget the MMA award ceremony, at which girls from Fifth Harmony cast fake Camila Cabello from the stage in the choreography.

Halsey vs. Demi Lovato and Katy Perry

HalseyThis is one of those quarrels that fans have cooked. Namely, they were quite sure that Halsey did not have a very cool attitude towards Demi Lovato and Katy Perry because she once mentioned the lyrics of the songs of the mentioned girls and the fact that pop music still looks at bisexuality as a taboo. Then Demi said something about “if they talk about it, it sure is still a hit song,” and chaos emerged.

Katy Perry vs. Taylor Swift

A typical girlfriends row, one said one, the other said something else and the bam girls were suddenly in a quarrel, a quarrel that stretched through the whole of 2017 and which honestly no longer knows the cause.

Big Hollywood Lies – Movies That Are Not Based On A True Story After All

Big Hollywood Lies - Movies That Are Not Based On A True Story After All

You know when the title of the movie says “True Story”? Well, for these films, they lied to us a bit. But that’s to be expected, given that history is sometimes a bit boring and dull, so the creative team working on the film has to change the action to keep the attention of the viewer. These are films whose creative teams have slightly changed the action and made a movie that is ultimately not inspired by a real story.

The Revenant

Although Hugh Glass played by Leonardo DiCaprio existed in the film, some things are still fictional. Hugh may have survived the disagreements nature had set (yes, even that epic bear scene), but he did not have a son, so the whole action of the film based on Hugh seeking revenge for the people you killed his son – well, it is just pure fiction.

The Walk, and Man on Wire

The Walk, and Man on WireYes, Philippe Petit, who plays Joseph Gordon Levitt in the film, was walking on a thin rope placed between two towers of the World Trade Center, even made a couple of tricks along the way, as shown in the film. But the true story we are talking about has never been filmed, and so is the supposedly archival footage of that walk that later appears in the documentary on Phillippe Petit ‘Man on Wire’ of course does not exist. Let’s also mention that the facts, like how many times they have suffered or had problems with the police, are not in correlation with real life and film The Walk.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

This cult film was promoted as a real story, and in fact, it was far from that and quite an ordinary horror. Although Leatherface from the movie is one of the most famous horror villains, it is not based on a maniac that is going around with a chainsaw, but like most of the horror and thriller thugs based on the serial killer Edu Gein.

7 Films From 2017 You Need To See

7 Films From 2017 You Need To See

The film year began triumphantly with the release of the most praised and awarded “Moonlight” and “La La Land”. After the Oscars season, the year was marked by Christopher Nolan and his war dancer “Dunkirk”. The long-awaited sequel to “Blade Runner” completely satisfied fans of science fiction, but one horror left the biggest impression on the audience in 2017. In the text that follows, find out which 7 films from 2017 most impressed the critics.

Call Me By Your Name

This is an adaptation of the novel of the same name, Andreas Asiman, which deals with the growing up and the first love of the seventeenth-year-old young man Elijah in rural Italy. Although it has only recently been broadcast in world cinemas, this film has already found its place on the list of the best film achievements of the year.

God’s Own Country

Johnny is a young British farmer who spends his free time on alcohol and superficial love relationships with other men. When his Georgian migrant Georgi comes to his village, his life starts to get meaning, and the two get into a relationship that will change them forever.


This is all but a conventional war film. It shows the evacuation of the British army from French beaches during the Second World War from three different perspectives: soldiers on the land waiting for help from the sea, airborne pilots defending them from the attack of German combat aircraft, and civilians who started ships to help in the evacuation of the detained army.

The Death Of Stalin

The Death Of Stalin

A panic and a struggle for the power of the political leadership of the Soviet Union after Stalin’s death in 1953 was shown humorously. The film was directed by Armando Iannucci, a British author who is known for his political satires. We remind you that he is the creator of the hilarious series The Thick Of It and Veep, as well as In The Loop.

La La Land

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone brushed as a jazz musician and young actress in one of the most popular modern La La Land musicals. The film might have slipped off the Oscars, but it did not prevent it from being paid at the box office for nearly 450 million dollars.

Blade Runner 2049

Blade Runner 2049

The quality of the continuation of the science-fiction classic Blade Runner surprised even the biggest skeptics. The film takes place 30 years from the original and follows the fate of a replicant named K (Ryan Gosling) who is tasked with finding and eliminating replicants of the old series that have been banned by law in the meantime.

Get Out

The director’s debut by comedian Jordan Peel impressed both the critic and the audience. Get Out is a perfect horror that keeps all the genres of the genre, but at the same time it deals with the ever-present theme of the relationship between races (in this case, white and black).

Film Festival In Glasgow

Film Festival In Glasgow

In 1983 Glasgow city launched its campaign „miles better” to advertise and promote itself as an industry and tourist location. The campaign becomes internationally known as one of the earliest and as one of the most successful.

Offcourse the festival wouldn’t be the same, and quite popular without its guest filmmaker appearances, workshops that are interactive, and great discussion lectures and panels. It has all one could imagine.

Film Festival In GlasgowThis Festival is a place for people to share different perspectives and ideas, with the audience response and experience as one of the most important parts of a creative process. It is a place not only for the people that are in love with this industry, but also for the (future) professionals to meet, exchange ideas, and stay informed about all the things that are happening in this industry.

Movie: New Town Killers

Movie: New Town Killers

This amazing British film is directed and written by Jobson Richard, and it is produced by Luc Roeg. It was released in the United Kingdom in 2008, and it is 97 minutes long. In this drama, the lead actors are Dougray Scott and Anthony Pearson. The plot follows businessmen played by Alastair Mackenzie and Dougray Scott – they are playing mouse and cat games with marginalized people.

New Town KillersThe movie follows a teenager from Edinburgh Sean Macdonald who is living with his sister Alice Kelly a life that lacks any perspective. They are orphans. In one moment, the brother finds out that his sister is in debt 12.000 pounds to some dangerous man, and they are forcing Alice to carry drugs to Amsterdam. In the same time, two strangers Jamie Steward and Alistair Raskolnikov get in touch with Sean offering him the same amount his sister owes in exchange that the three of them play hide and seek for 12 hours. The deal is that if they fail to hunt Sean, he will get the money in the morning. After the boy accepts their offer, the plot thickens – it came to light that Alistair is a killer, paranoid and sadistic one, so Sean needs to win, not only for the money but to save his life. The men who contacted him are bankers, and the hunting games are how they pass their time.

This thriller is full of the tension that just constantly keeps growing, the action scenes are amazingly fluent, and the viewers are presented with somewhat gothic Edinburg. The ethical questions that this movie raised are still relevant in today’s world and will be in the days to come.
