The 10 Greatest M. Night Shyamalan Scenes

M. Night Shyamalan’s career is, in a lot of ways, riddled with inconsistencies. Most people would tell you that the best films he made are early in his career, even with his recent comeback in working with Blumhouse Productions. But even when the quality of his films is low, you can always find some recognizable elements in his work. To rank the best scenes in Shyamalan’s career, though, you do have to look primarily (but not entirely) at his early work. In honor of his new film, Glass, whi...

Lyft just poached another Google engineering executive as it continues to siphon off talent from the search giant (GOOGL)

Lyft has hired former Google VP of engineering Eisar Lipkovitz to lead its engineering team.  His move is the latest in a string of hires by Lyft from the search-engine giant.  Alphabet, Google's parent company, has invested in Lyft through its VC arm, CapitalG. Lyft has been quickly scaling up its engineering team as it continues to expand into things like bikes, scooters, and more. To keep up with the growth and manage its team of engineers that is now more than 1,000-strong, the ride-hail...

The Unpopular Opinion: ‘Glass’ is a Bold and Brilliant Climax to M. Night Shyamalan’s Superhero Trilogy

(Welcome to The Unpopular Opinion, a series where a writer goes to the defense of a much-maligned film or sets their sights on a movie seemingly beloved by all. In this edition: M. Night Shyamalan‘s critically lambasted Glass is actually good!) Reactions from critics to the Unbreakable trilogy have grown increasingly divisive with each film – not unlike reactions to M. Night Shyamalan’s work as a whole. It was only years later, after the subsequent surge of studio attempts to make “gritty”...

Grooming the Next Generation: Did Gillette Miss a Spot?

The American Psychological Association recently contributed its thoughts on traditional masculinity, telling us that it’s mainly a semi-harmful social construct. This week, Gillette has added its two cents on “toxic” masculinity in a now-viral advertisement. The main point: men must hold other men accountable “in ways big and small,” especially as it pertains to sexual harassment and bullying. This is important because, apart from the incentive of selling shaving products, the boys watching toda...

‘Unbreakable’ Was a Superhero Movie Years Ahead of Its Time

The worldwide theatrical release of M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass this week has prompted a rush of appreciation online for Unbreakable, the first in what became a trilogy of superhero films spread out over nineteen years. With its deconstructionist take on superhero mythology, the 2000 flick, starring Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson, anticipated the great wave of 21st-century comic book movies and TV shows grounded in pseudo-realism. Everything from The Dark Knight trilogy to the Marvel Cin...

McDonald’s Big, Super, Good-for-nothing European Trademark Mess

From time to time, I post squirrelly thoughts. Today, I wonder: Should a large company with famous, distinct trademarks sometimes hold back from aggressively enforcing those trademarks, even when doing so might at first appear to be a useful competitive strategy? I’m sure many executives at McDonald’s–the worldwide fast-food chain that it is so ubiquitous The Economist uses the prices of the Big Mac to measure purchasing power parity throughout the world–are questioning some past enforcement dec...

5 Tips for Saving Money When You Have Low Income

Most of us want to save money so we can build wealth and plan for the future. We have goals we want to reach (like traveling) or things we want to buy (like a dream home).

Canadiens & Bruins Reignite Rivalry

When the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens meet, it’s emotional – mostly based on deep hatred for one another.

The Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens have one of the biggest rivalries in sports. (Vince Richard/The Hockey Writers) The story of the Bruins and Canadiens is one of blood, sweat, tears and drama.
