Men in Black 3 Promotional Material

Ten years later Will Smith and the Men in Black franchise still have a winning formula. After 4 weeks of dominance by The Avengers, Men in Black III has taken over first place in the domestic box office race. While the film performed on par with Men in Black 2, it is Will Smith’s return after a three year hiatus that has proved to be most impressive. In an era where superstars no longer seem to tempt audiences into the seats, Will managed to solidify 54% of the over 25 demo. This does indicate that families were not as interested in the franchise. Of course, Men in Black III finds itself up against stiff family competition in the coming weeks, specifically from Snow White and the Huntsman and Madagascar 3.

Movies Poster for the film Battleship

The masses have spoken and for the third week in a row, The Avengers¬†will top the box office with a fifty-five million dollar weekend*. Along the way, Marvel/Disney’s latest comic book box office supernova has broken a series of records that will be very tough to match. Although several films over the next few months will certainly try their best to top this early summer titan.

Jen’s Project365 for 2011!

As some of you may know, I decided to take a photo a day everyday in 2010 — and haven’t stopped ever since! In the beginning of 2011, I created an infographic to give some information about the content of the photos I took. The data I used was less than precise (I went through all the photos by hand and evaluated them) but it did shed some light on my habits.

The History of Cable Television

Master and Commander by Jen Gallardo

We take it all for granted. A thousand channels that can entertain us with classic movies, new reality shows or teach us how to install fancy tiles into our third bathroom. Over the past twenty years Cable television has become an essential part of the American household. The diagram of the nuclear family has expanded from mother, father, child and pet to include the glowing box underneath our television. It is how we release stress and how we keep up to date with current events.

Copyright and Photos and You

Rotten by Jen Gallardo

If you have been following us on twitter, you may be aware of the Meagan Kunert story. For those that aren’t, here’s a quick recap. Kunert essentially did something that many in the photo industry consider reprehensible and unforgivable — she took photos that weren’t hers and passed them off as her own. And by some accounts, Kunert didn’t just steal photos but she also stole editorial content written by other photographers. In other words, she cheated and got caught, which caused quite a stir on Twitter and Facebook (let’s just say the cavalry came to the aid of all the slighted photographers).
