Celebrity photo leaks: Drop the drama, everyone loves a story!

The ‘nude celebrities’ pictures’ leak last week on the internet’s various social media sites has created an unwarranted, but nevertheless expected, level of hoopla. The truth is, in this day and age, any educated and avid internet user, with a plethora of passwords for a multitude of accounts and, who watches thrillers is well aware of the universal do-no-gooders called hackers, trolls, and cyberpunks. If the CIA can subject governments of entire countries to hacking, spying, and needlessly-putting-your-nose-where-it-definitely-does-not-belong, then you’d have the common sense to realise that once you put your images, messages, trivial and/or important personal information into any ...

Jennifer Lawrence and proof of a male dominated society

Jennifer Lawrence is one of those celebrities you cannot help but fall in love with. She’s funny, spontaneous, and doesn’t seem to have a filter when it comes to speaking, and the fact that she is so GIF-able, adds to her fame. So it came as a shock when a couple of days ago, a user on an anonymous forum decided to drop the bomb that he has Jennifer Lawrence’s, and other Hollywood celebrities’, nude photographs, and leaked a first batch. The internet went on fire that day and no one could talk about anything else. But there seems to be ...

X-Men: Days of Future Past is the best X-Men movie yet!

Many people are comparing the newly released X-Men: Days of Future Past to Bryan Singer’s previous trilogy, which had hit the screens almost a decade ago. This comparison is kind of unfair, since the same visuals and special effects couldn’t possibly have been present in the early 2000s. What can be compared, however, is their entertainment level. And was the Days of Future Past better than the X-Men trilogy? Yes, by a record margin. The past few X-Men movies haven’t received the same international fame or attention as Marvel’s other movies have. Sure, The Wolverine did make amends for the ...

Can you be beautiful as you age? The media says ‘No!’

Beauty has always been tantamount to youth but the frenzy of confining beauty to the fleeting time zone of youth is a recent phenomenon. Media and the cosmetic industry have played a great role in weaving and reinforcing this youth-centric narrative of beauty. Beauty is youth An anti-ageing cream heralds, “Look up to ten years younger.” And that too at the age of 32! The catch here is that the woman is 32-years-old and the gravest matter of concern for her is the growing indifference of her man due to her dull skin. The irony is that the man, no less than a Greek god, is ...

Predicting the winners: And the Oscar goes to…

When we talk about the Oscars, we mean good, quality films. During the previous year, we have seen some of the best cinema ever made. Topics that had not been dared to be produced before have admirably been made in recent works on the celluloid. Some movies provide great entertainment while others create such an intimate bond with the audience that they almost blur their vision of reality. This year’s nominations have both these types covered, which makes me all the more excited about them. Earlier this year, we witnessed many substantial award ceremonies. But the Academy Awards (Oscars) are yet to ...

‘Catching Fire’ with The Hunger Games!

With its dark and powerful plot coupled with an abundance of fantastic performances, Francis Lawrences’s Catching Fire is as gripping a watch as its former film. But unlike The Hunger Games, the latest instalment in the franchise based on Suzanne Collins’ popular books, portrays a much darker world and leaves no stone unturned to show the horrors people suffer under totalitarian regimes. Catching Fire takes us back to the dark, despairing country of Panem. After winning the 74th edition of the Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) return to their home in District 12, the most suppressed sector of Panem. They are on their ...
