Cocaine-cola

As of a recent tweet posted by the one and only Elon Musk, joking about buying Coca-Cola and bringing back cocaine in its formula, I’ve started wondering. What is the actual original recipe for this worldwide famous soda?

Criticism of movies

There’s a rush coming out of a movie theatre, thinking: ‘man, that was a good one!’ But…was it actually good? In film law, as to say, what does a great film actually mean?

Superheroes: from the beginnings

'There was an idea: that we could bring together a group of remarkable people…to see if we could become something more. So when they needed us, we could fight the battles that they never could.'

Has it ever happened to you to meet someone about whom you knew information beforehand? What if the information was negative? Will you be biased?

February is no longer GLAM

Every year, in February social media, would be full of fancy dresses, pretty actresses with weird hairstyles, and the most impressive suits.

Euphoric

Bright lights. High school. Young love. Addiction. Guns. The release of the second season of “Euphoria” back in February seems to have won over the internet once again. Whether it has been your feed or fyp, all social media platforms have been swarmed by edits and posts about it. But “Euphoria” is nothing if not controversial.

The girl outside the train

The first time I saw her was the day after New Year’s Day. I think it was really early in the morning ‘cause there weren’t many people on the street.

What makes a movie star?

Everybody says, ‘You impress me as a guy who never wanted to be a movie star’. I say: ‘Everybody in the world wants to be a movie star’. -Rip Torn

Are We Addicted To Sugar?

Sweets – those things we just can’t stay away from, despite how hard we try to impose a no-sugar diet. It’s in their nature; they’re just too good. Who can say no to a piece of chocolate? But have you ever wondered why we just can’t seem to refuse them?

When I Grow Up- A Story About Beds

It got really cold after 3 am in his room. Regardless of the heating system - for which his parents paid a great deal of money, regardless of the blue and white blanket he found hidden in a stocking 2 years before. It always gets cold after 3. That's about the time when you start noticing things.

Midterm stress

Midterms. The result of months’ worth of work and lessons you most probably didn’t learn beforehand. Those horrifying two to three weeks when most students try to get up to date with all the schoolwork, staying up, only functioning on caffeine, and waking up at 6 am only to roam the school halls like exhausted zombies.

Merry Covid Christmas

It’s been almost two years since humanity has had to deal with the massive health crisis brought over by Covid-19. It was first discovered in Wuhan, C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hina at the end of 2019, hence the name, but the exact cause still remains unclear. After that, it was slowly transmitted to the rest of the country.

Red (Taylor's Version)

If you've met me, you already know Taylor Swift's discography is the soundtrack of my life. After her masters controversy, I thought my favorite album was lost for good; taxi cabs and busy streets, they'd never bring it back to me...

35 Movies that break the 4th wall

Let’s take a square room- got 4 standing walls. There’s an actor drinking water inside of it. How can we film the action? If we don’t move the camera, then we can only film the action from one perspective, while covering the wall behind us. So the actor uses three walls, because the camera occupies the fourth. The actor never looks into the camera, so he never uses the fourth wall.

Young and Famous - a blessing or a curse

Life in the spotlight seems so very glamorous – until it isn’t. We’ve all seen the documentaries – monsters hiding in plain sight, contracts that no one benefits from, the intrigues and games in the backstage. Yet, somehow, the life of celebrities has maintained its appeal; no one is thrown off, most want it all the same.

The rebirth of logo mania

When you think logos, you either think tacky or statement. From hypebeast culture to subtle wealth show offs, logos have been playing a huge part in the fashion industry for a century.

Don’t blame me, I’m the victim

When you think of the word toxic, what is the first meaning that pops up in your mind? Whatever it may be, the official definition of toxicity is “the quality of being very harmful or unpleasant in a pervasive or insidious way”.

Are you satisfied or just settled?

It used to be true - that our survival instinct is our single greatest source of inspiration. And we must apologize to both Charles Darwin and capitalism, because what they fought to explain and very much rightfully so - free competition -, is no longer the standing pillar of the struggle of human existence.

We Accept You As Long As You Don't Exist

The EU claims its openness towards the LGBTQ+ community with 16 countries out of 27 legalizing same-sex marriage, all while offering support towards queer people. Yet, this idea is a mere façade for the actual harsh reality.

GRAMMYs or SCAMMYs?

The 63rd edition of the GRAMMY Awards has had the music industry in a continuous uproar since the nomination announcements and, with the winners finally in possession of their prizes, it seems as though the distaste of the public has been given renewed strength.

Ocean’s charisma - “Ocean’s Eleven”

Robbing the biggest casinos in the world never looked so good and never felt so easy. Cause Danny Ocean and Rusty Ryan stink of class, confidence, and making things work. Tonight, the house does not win.

"L’âge n’est pas un frein pour apprendre", plus ou moins faux

Quand on est bébé, on apprend à parler les langues natales sans aucune règle. Ce serait génial de pouvoir apprendre une langue sans avoir besoin de passer pour la grammaire, surtout que quand on entend le mot "grammaire" c’est souvent un signe de quelque chose de compliqué…

Cinematography Sins: The disasters of film adaptations

Book to movie adaptations have long been one of the most debated upon topics by readers and viewers alike. The genres they fall under are of little importance; fans of the novels always find things to complain about in the screen adaptations, be they fantasy, classics, young adult, or science-fiction.

Gen Z. A study

Being curious about how generations have progressed over the years and given the recent mentalities as well as the fact that Gen Z has started being more outspoken about certain taboo subjects, I’ve decided to conduct a study to find out what teenagers really think.

The Quentin Tarantino wilderness

If you had a rebellious heart and dyslexia the 90s’Hollywood was nothing but heaven for you. We didn’t even have to wait for The Cold War to end, ‘cause the cinema had already shown us how much of a spoiled brat it can get even during it.
