There are tons of pageants around the world that don’t get as much coverage, but try and accomplish some good instead of focusing on the competition. Many organizations use pageants to raise the profile of their issue or just to promote their brand. Check out some of the world’s most unusual pageants below.
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.
Though we sure love to celebrate the successful, pretty people of Hollywood, we also love the losers. That’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 year’s best weren’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 2018’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!), we’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. We’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 isn’t necessarily an indication of a movie’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.
Valentine’s Day is the perfect holiday to snuggle up with loved ones, either romantic or platonic, and enjoy a movie together. The weather is probably cold and dreary outside, and all the delicious food that you just ate is probably making you quite sleepy. This year, skip the fancy cocktail lounge or restaurant, and stay at home with a movie.
Whether you’re single or in a relationship, it’s fun to have some themed reading to get you in the mood for the holiday. To help you out, we’ve curated a list of books that are perfect for Valentine’s Day.
