The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013)

When Walter Mitty (Ben Stiller), a manager for a magazine, learns that one of the photo negatives he needs is missing, he has to leave his boring, monotonous life behind to track down the photographer. Walter’s journey shows us that when we go out in the world with no plan or final destination in mind, we can get swept up in all kinds of life-changing adventures. And despite all the craziness, we learn to love this world and gain a new appreciation for it.

Walter Mitty’s adventure was simply pure chaos. Nothing went right for him, right from day one. And yet, if you asked him about it, I’m willing to bet he’d consider it the best time of his life.

The Hangover (2009)

Come on, after watching the Hangover you immediately wanted to gather up a group of your friends and go party like a rock star in Vegas. Starring Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis, this film follows a group of friends who, after a night of insanity and general tomfoolery in the city of sin, discover that one of their group is now missing, and go on a quest to find him.

The Hangover teaches us that even if things don’t turn out like you planned, it’s important to travel with your buddies and go wild at least once in your life, and bring home a story or two to tell (or take with you to your grave).

Styles of Wrestling from Around the World

Most of us are familiar with World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). This brand rose in popularity within the 1980s, thanks to the likes of Hulk Hogan and “Macho Man” Randy Savage, who placed wrestling on the pop culture map. As time wore on, the WWE has built a mass marketing and entertainment empire through their larger-than-life personalities, including the likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, and Triple H. Still, why some out there can state the WWE does profile some wrestling, it is a far cry from the true techniques that are involved in the sport itself.
