We donâ€™t just celebrate forward-thinking celebs for their cultural explorations of the unknown. We also give them a bit of a pass when their experiments miss their mark. That is, until it comes to the names of their children. Celebrities make strange decisions. Having children isnâ€™t strange of course. But, naming them after inanimate objects, fictional characters, items of clothing, and produce? Well, thatâ€™s just unforgiveable.
The gaming industry as a whole is an entertainment goliath, pulling in an estimated $91 billion in 2016 and, it just keeps growing. That success is due in large part to the accessibility and variety of home-use gaming consoles.
The world of collectibles was forever changed by the introduction of everyoneâ€™s favorite electrified critter. Pikachu, Charmander, and the rest of their colorful group stole the hearts of a generation back in the late â€˜90s. But more than that, the franchiseâ€™s collectibles ushered in a new, much more expensive era for the waning trading card industry.
In theory, the scientific method is designed to coax humans towards the next stage of our evolution. But in the past, a few not-so-friendly scientists have co-opted the scientific method to further their nefarious means.
Though we sure love to celebrate the successful, pretty people of Hollywood, we also love the losers. Thatâ€™s because, the official 2018 nominations left more than a handful of fan-favorite movies, actors, writers, and directors off of the ballot yet again.
The Academy Awards are a time for cinephiles to celebrate another year of art. And though some of the yearâ€™s best werenâ€™t recognized in full (snubs are part of the fun), the Oscars offer a welcome respite from politics, scandal, and the like. Today, we take a look at the biggest movies of the past year in cinema. So, settle in, butter up some popcorn, and enjoy this walk through 2018â€™s most successful movies.
The Olympics is a fun event that allows even the most couchbound person to dream of athletic prowess and the unending glory of the medal podium. As we leave behind the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang and look forward to the next games (see you in the summer of 2020 in Tokyo!), weâ€™re reminded of just how effective the Olympics can be in terms of diplomacy and international friendship.
But what about those films that were carried by big-name actors and actresses, directors and screenwriters, or massive corporate studios? What about those films that barely made back their budget? Those films that bombed so hard at the box office that they became the laughing stocks of the film industry? Well Filthy Rich has got you covered. Weâ€™re not going to let these flops go without any recognition.
With the recent release of the Oscar nominations, now is a great time to look back at all the movies that we enjoyed in 2017 and see how they stack up. Box office gross isnâ€™t necessarily an indication of a movieâ€™s quality, but it does tell us how many people went to go see it in theaters. And in an era where any movie can be downloaded almost instantly, that figure is still pretty significant.
