If you haven't been living in a Tibetan monastery, you might've heard about the big bomb dropped on us. I'm talking, of course, of the Captain America Civil War teaser (although if you were expecting some actual bomb news, I'd say play Fallout 4).
The trailer itself is quite vague, while still teasing out lots of plot points and characters. What on earth could it all be about?
Let's try and guess.
A Dark Bond Through Time - A Look Back At Licence To Kill And Quantum Of Solace
by Luv Mehta
With the recent release of Spectre in India, we’ve faced anticipation and hype, as well as a slowly looming spectre of advance reviews from overseas that… aren’t positive, mildly speaking. Craig’s run has, for the most part, been characterized by a unique, dark take on the James Bond character (which is apparently very faithful to the original Fleming character, but seeing how that version’s openly racist, misogynistic, and not very good at his job, let’s not bother too much about that detail), and it’s quite easy to dismiss this take as being incongruous to the very nature of Bond, going against the many films that have established the larger-than-life fun intrinsic to the series. This is the series where volcanic lairs, sharp hats and corkscrew car jumps are considered iconic, after all, right?
...yeah, no. Bond’s been here before. After the last Moore movie, Timothy Dalton played James Bond for two installments, showing a much more professional and tough take on the character, and his second outing, Licence To Kill, has a lot in common with the new direction of the Bond movies - in particular, with Quantum Of Solace.
Let’s see how.

Have you ever had one of those conversations with your parents with regards to music?
Where your parents say that their music was a thousand times better than all the noise that's coming out these days? That all that you hear now isn't great at all and shouldn't be considered music?

S: So this year’s Weekender. I remember not being sure what to think about it before going this year, cause the bands called in this year were pretty different from the lineup last year. Now, before we get into that, let’s all go for a short intro about the festival? You know, protocol.
Why An Astroboy Will Endure While An Ash Ketchum Will Die - An Ode To The Legacy Of Astroboy
by Devanjali Banerjee
Astro Boy, or Mighty Atom, is a long-running and beloved story of Japan’s very own superhero who is actually a robot with a heart of gold (this may just be literally true, take heed.) Written by Osamu Tezuka with the intention of educating children about science, technology as well as socio-moral questions, this Japanese comic series has amassed global recognition.
So let’s cut to the origin story.

For most of you this show would have had the same value as any other sitcom/TV show, but for me, it's a lot more than that. I found this show to be more relatable than most other shows of this nature, which would explain my obsession with it and an innate need to constantly quote and refer to this monument of a TV show. Very few shows have been able to create such a deep impact for me. I watch this show whenever I have nothing to watch because it's comfort and is very well made. I like shows of this nature where you don't have to laugh your ass off, yet you can appreciate how intelligently the makers have been able to fit in so much detail and comedy, which makes watching the show worthwhile.
I will try and explain the entire show using the theme song (don't mind if I completely skip any 4th season reference). Here we go.
