Music Video Pick: Dua Lipa – New Rules

Today’s TasteTV music video pick is by Dua Lipa, called “New Rules.”

The song was recently ranked as the official UK NUMBER 1 song and the first solo female #1 since Adele’s “Hello.”

The staccato beat is refreshing, with a repetitiveness that is catchy but also improvisational. The lyrics are a great match with the actual music video visuals, which show a love sick disenchanted woman learning the new rules of relationships and hookups from her various friends, and then eventually passing them on to others in need. The well synchronized dance routines are choreographed yet spontaneous, ranging in locales from a hotel bedroom, to the bathroom, to the hotel swimming pool.

The video filters and styles have a flashy nouveau tropical vibe that makes the viewers feel cool and hip, especially when seen with the multi-hued designer sunglasses worn by her diverse multi-ethnic ‘posse’ of advisers and friends.

In this video, the ladies literally walk on water. Once you start humming, “I’ve got rules, I’ve got rules,” you’ll find the Dua Lipa ear bug has been caught for this song. The rules are contagious.

She is currently on tour around Europe, Asia and the United States. We certainly look forward to seeing her act live!

Faux Movie Trailer: LAND OF THE CHOCOLATE GIANTS

Sometimes TasteTV and the Chocolate Salon just want to have a little fun, and that’s why we made this faux trailer for a movie we might make someday: LAND OF THE CHOCOLATE GIANTS.

The idea is based on an science fiction television series from the 1960’s, called, “Land of the Giants.” A group of travelers arrive on a space ship to a world where everything is the same as their own, except it’s larger.

In our case, it’s larger, and in chocolate.


MOVIE POSTERS

 

Trailer for Will Smith’s Netflix film BRIGHT is as good as an actual Movie

Although the movie Suicide Squad grossed millions of dollars at the box office, it was not extremely well received by critics and fans alike. Will Smith’s character was well-developed, but the movie was not the best vehicle for his talents. Fortunately, the director of Suicide Squad and Smith have teamed up for a new reality/fantasy movie where he plays an LA cop in a world where magic exists.

The movie is called BRIGHT, coming out on Netflix in December 2017. The awesome trailers are certain to generate buzz and excitement leading up to its debut.
