CNN Remembers the Golden Age of Aviation

CNN recalls when airlines were selling dreams & high-end luxury

CNN: Transporting us back to the golden age of aviation, CNN have compiled a selection of vintage photographs from a time when airlines were selling globetrotting dreams and high-end luxury. The exact opposite of today’s low cost carriers, these photographs from the 50s and 60s remind us that air travel was once synonymous with fashion, cocktails, luxury, glamour, gastronomy, and social status although it did come at a price – a Sydney to London round trip cost the equivalent of thirty weeks wages! Happy Flashback Friday 🙂

Quentin Tarantino, King of Visual References

Quentin Tarantino films are loaded with homages to movies he loves

Quentin Tarantino: Editor, filmmaker and self-confessed cinephile Jacob T. Swinney just created an awesome montage comparing the visual references of Quentin Tarantino with the original films including scenes from Psycho, Citizen Kane, Miller’s Crossing, Django, Metropolis and many more. Quentin Tarantino is a true movie lover and does not hesitate to pay tribute to scenes, actors, and directors in his own films, replicating exact moments from a variety of genres and smashing them together to create his own distinct vision. This video is so cool and it’s great to finally know the exact film some of Tarantino’s most memorable scenes are referencing – enjoy! 🙂

Abrams btw) is set to hit cinemas on 22nd July 2016.
