The Most Unconventional Berlin Bucket List

illustrations: Berk Karaoglu.  We decided to rethink the concept of a conventional bucket list and came up with scenarios that shamelessly embrace Berlin’s potential as the backdrop of some memorable experiences. And ‘’memorable’’ is actually somewhat of an understatement here – some of these shenanigans are simply unforgettable, even if some parties involved may indeed wish otherwise. While we are by no means condoning every single one of these actions, let alone encourage anyone to draw any...

'Iron Man 3' Finds Its Hero in Crisis

None One question loomed over Iron Man 3 (Shane Black, 2013) from its inception: Why doesn't he just call the Avengers? After all, Tony Stark/Iron Man had just appeared in the biggest superhero film of all time, a team-up consisting of him, Captain America, the Hulk, Thor, and the combined resources of SHIELD (including Nick Fury, Black Widow and Hawkeye). How could the filmmakers devise a serious, dangerous scenario for the character in which he would not call his super-friends? Longtime comic...

During this class, Jordan Peterson describes how overprotective parenting led to the creation of Buddhism.Peterson compares the Buddhist origin myth with the story of Eden.Both tales deal with the onset of consciousness and mortality and therefore are universal in appeal.

It was prophesied that his child would either become a great political king or s...

Marc Webb's '​The Amazing Spider-Man​' Is a Reboot That Deserves a Rewatch

None Spider-Man 3 (2007) was a disappointment to pretty much everyone, including director Sam Raimi. Although financially successful due to a surprisingly large worldwide gross (it remains the highest-grossing Spider-Man film worldwide), the messy narrative failed to live up to the standards of Raimi's celebrated first two films. In late 2007, Raimi and stars Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst signed on to Spider-Man 4, James Vanderbilt was hired to write the screenplay, and an early May 2011 rele...

Feature Presentations Magazine #6 (Moby Dick) - Wally Wood cover

Wally Wood Feature Presentations Magazine v1 #6 featuring Moby Dick, 1950 - Though not the first comic book adaptation of Herman Melville's Moby Dick, it is among the most memorable due to Wally Wood's dynamic cover.

Joss Whedon's 'The Avengers' Blasts Away All Other Comic Book Films

None There has long been a debate amongst contemporary film fans over the value of "mass entertainment", or "popcorn films". One side sees these types of films as juvenile frivolities, made for undiscerning mainstream audiences and lacking the substance of more serious, mature films. These fans are particularly disturbed by the increasing size and quantity of these mass entertainment films in recent years, as they seem to be leaving little room in the budgets or release schedules of major stud...

Most talked about: How overparenting backfired on Americans

American childhood is going, going… gone, says Professor Jonathan Haidt. In the mid-'90s there was a sharp shift to overprotective parenting.

As a result, their independence, resilience, and problem-solving skills suffer."Give childhood back to kids so that they do what they most need to do, which is develop the skills of being an independent adult.
