Popular entertainment evolves. According to a 2011 article by Cutting et. al, films in the English language between 1935 to 2010 have decreased in terms of shot length, motion, and luminance. While these refer to the actual production of films and not the actual plot of films themselves, this still indicates a change in film production. We can assume that since 2011 that films have continued to evolve. If the article by Cutting is correct, films have become shorter and darker since 2010, and that these films continue to become shorter and darker as…


In 2019, Disney released their own streaming service, staking their claim as an active competitor in the streaming service industry. In addition to streaming services people already had, such as Netflix or Hulu, Disney+ became another that many have subscribed to. Disney has many franchises many love from their classic Disney films, Disney Channel original movies and shows, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic. Like other streaming services, Disney+ has a recommendation system built-in for recommending films to users based on something they watch. If a user watches a Pixar film, another Pixar film may be recommended after streaming…


Taylor Swift, to say the least, has had an immense impact on the modern music industry. Now I’m not just saying this as a Swiftie; before I became a Swiftie (soon after she released reputation in 2017), I couldn’t doubt that Taylor Swift had some of the most iconic pop songs on the radio, nostalgic country jams, and overall, music for whatever mood you’re in. Being an active artist since she was 15, Taylor has 10 studio albums so far, 1 of them being a re-recording of Fearless (aka Fearless (Taylor’s Version)). Her songwriting and music production is some of…

It’s the weekend and you just finished binge-watching your favorite TV show. You could rewatch it all over again or find something new. But among hundreds of shows on streaming services, how do you pick one? The goal of streaming services is to keep you watching their available programs (and make a profit, of course), but when you have limitless numbers of shows to pick from, how do you decide? There might not be an exact replica of the show you were just watching, but maybe something else just as good will come close. Streaming services likely have their own…


The impeachment trial may be over, but what has Reddit had to say about it?

If you’re an American who’s been paying attention to political news lately, you probably heard about Trump being acquitted at his second impeachment trial following the former president’s incitement of insurrection. This, as many of us know, led to the capitol riots, and Democrats in Congress attempted to convict Trump for his actions. The Senate voted 57 for guilty and 43 for not guilty. All Democrat and both Independent senators voted guilty along with 7 Republican senators voted guilty. A conviction would require a 2/3…

If you’re like me, when you heard about the remake of Disney’s Mulan (2020), you may have been excited to hear that it featured an all Asian cast and the film was meant to be a more accurate depiction of Hua Mulan. Because while I adore Disney’s 1998 release of Mulan, I was open to the idea of seeing a film that may better portray Asian, and specifically Chinese culture. Accurate…

Do you think people around the world use social media the same? Perhaps it’s not something you typically think about but do you think everyone who uses social media, or the internet in general, uses it in the same way? Obviously, there’s a lot of “ways to use social media” whether you’re just scrolling through your news feeds or posting either on Instagram and TikTok or Snapchat and YouTube. However, there is evidence that social media users in different countries use social media platforms differently and for various reasons.

It’s no secret that the political climate in the United States is tense and that it only drives people further apart. Under such circumstances, I think talking about the issues at hand and what we can do to address them, and more importantly, see where our differences are in these issues is significant to moving forward as a country. Currently, in my experience, I have seen people debate politics based on a post or comment someone makes on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, and TikTok. Unfortunately, what I sometimes see is that the conversation may get out of hand with both sides…

It’s Tuesday, November 3rd, and whether or not you’re an American citizen, if you currently reside in the United States, you know that the 2020 presidential election is going to be an important one for this country. With the COVID-19 pandemic still going on, the recent nomination of Amy Coney Barret to the Supreme Court, Black Lives Matter protests, and just the general political climate overall, voting in this election was important to many. And so as Election Day came, millions of Americans watched the results roll in despite the fact that a winner was not declared that night.

This article is a continuation of Boarding Now: An Exploratory Look Into US Airline Sentiment Tweets.

For those who are well-traveled: what’s your experience with flying among different airports? Do you think your airport experience has varied vastly in one country versus another? Has whatever location you’re arriving or departing from matter that much in regards to travel? For financial or stress sake, are there some places you should potentially avoid traveling to or at least mentally prepare for?
