Fighting arts originated in East Asia more than 2, 000 years ago. Since that time, an estimated 200 different methods have been created and are now being practiced by an estimated one hundred million all over the world. The popularity of arts drastically increased when emerged in the mainstream movie industry. The public's perception of martial arts has been shaped by movies starring such legends as Bruce Lee, Jet Li, Chuck Norris Steven Seagal, and Jean Claude Van Damme. Jackie Chan is another movie legend. He is best known for such movies as 'Drunken Master, ' and many movie buffs say it is one of his best films. Released in 1978, the film 'Drunken Master, ' brought Jackie into the mainstream in Hong Kong.
The Exorcist is probably one of the most well known and most popular horror movies of all time. Decades later it still brings chills to those who watch it. The Exorcist is about a young girl who becomes possessed by a demon. It is up to the exorcist to remove this demon from inside the little girl. Even though this movie is quite old, the cinematography is quite good. That, and the combination of the intense music can make some scenes incredibly scary. The Exorcism of Emily Rose is a more recent horror movie that also did quite well at the box office. It involves a teenage girl who is considered possessed by the Catholic church. This movie was quite popular despite several poor reviews from movie critics.

Thanks in large part to the vast diversity of American culture and its assimilation over the last few decades, high school students do not follow the same conventions their parents did thirty years ago. Back then one would rarely spot a jock dating a rebel or a brain dating a stoner. But, today anything is possible, even for an adorable, overweight class clown and a scrawny, awkward nerd. Seth and Evan of Superbad prove to underdogs everywhere that they can score the girl, as long as their willing to risk jail time in the process. Superbad introduces the audience to the two protagonists in the very first scene. Seth and Evan are less than three weeks from high school graduation, a glorious summer, and then, finally, their freshman year of college.
Teenage suicide was not unheard of before the nineteen-nineties, but its growing instances during this period led people to acknowledge the problem. Schools even started publishing materials to educate students and parents about the phenomena. The Virgin Suicides confronts this delicate topic straightforward. Sofia Coppola blends elements of her own style with those of classic film noir to show how these young individuals become so alienated in a world they barely know or understand. Through the eyes of five sheltered teenage girls, Coppola opens up a dark universe of isolation. From the start of the film, it is acknowledged that the five Lisbon girls all died before they made it to adulthood.

If you were alive in the 90s and had a television set, even one with only a few channels brought to you by an unreliable antennae set, you could not have escaped Beverly Hills, 90210. Even if you pretended to hate the show, it was everywhere. And while the popular feel-good family show-turned-20-something melodrama never created any true movie stars (except for Hillary Swank, who was axed after half a season after playing Steve Sanders' girlfriend), its various cast members were all popular in their own rights. Some of them went on to have reasonably successful careers outside of 90210, while others stayed loyal to the show and developed their careers within its confines.
The anticipation of watching a football or basketball game live is perhaps the best feeling a sports fan can get. Rooting on their favorite teams and players in the stadium, the fan experiences the excitement and thrill as his team trudges their way towards victory. While watching these games live is ideal, it is not possible to watch every game in person. Thus, having satellite television there for you to enjoy games that you cannot watch live is a second best alternative. It provides you a great way to root on your team. Satellite programming offers one of the most extensive coverage of football, basketball, and baseball. It also covers many less popular games as well, including cricket, racing, soccer, and even poker.
Dr. Nafario is the evil super-villain Gru's right hand man. He is a calm, but a little crazy scientist/inventor that makes Gru's strange ideas reality. Even after Gru was showed up with the pyramid heist, he still thinks Gru is the ultimate villain. Dr. Nafario being quite old is usually wearing hit white lab coat over a yellowish colored shirt. His coat is accompanied with black gloves and tinted goggles over his eyes. The even stranger part of his wardrobe are his yellow and orange checkered pants with the large black boots. He is severely lacking in the hair department and has quite a pointy nose and a rather large chin. His huge ears give him that geeky scientist look that one comes to expect.
