From 'AHS: Coven' to 'The Craft': Our fave pop culture witches http://t.co/xz0Osbr9DN #HugoMatz
Megan Salveggio's insight:

Being a total "nerd", I recongnized the majority of the witches listed in this photo article. AHS: Coven put a twist on the entire story of history, and looking at these photos, it shows. There are two(three?) black and white frame shots, and three cartoon witches, and the unforgettable Wizard of Oz's Wicked Witch of the East-- showing how throughout film, and before, how humans perceive witches. This however, does not incude any fact on the Salem wtich trails in the 1692-1693. AHS: Coven is absoulty brilliant, in my opinion; as it does have a history factor in the plot. Pop culture's favorite witches sure do have reason to be the favorites, and good reason at that.

Megan Salveggio's insight:

Across the world, DreamWorks animation studio released the offical trailer to the project of How To Train Your Dragon 2 (HTTYD 2). AwesomenessTV uploaded the video on their YouTube, and already in about 17 hours has over 650,000 views.

Sure, the target audience may be for boys roughly of the age 5-10, but lots of other people are VERY excited for this, myself included.

What does this have to do with culture? Well, I think it just has a speical effect to bring people across the globe together, a personal example. As I type this insight, I'm holding a conversation about the animation, effects, plot, and just "fangirling" about it with multiple people.

Someone from Great Britain, France, Austrailia, and United States have a common topic of interest. And film goes through the roof again to make connections within culture.

I just think that film, and literature, have a great amount of impact on someone's culture; even if the culture is throughout the globe, a country, state, or town.

Doctor Who: farewell Matt Smith - Telegraph

Doctor Who: farewell Matt Smith - Telegraph | Culture in film | Scoop.it
As Matt Smith bows out of Doctor Who, Ben Lawrence pays tribute to the versatile actor (RT @mattsmithcom: Doctor Who: farewell Matt Smith http://t.co/pprpul2QlK via @Telegraph_TV)...
Megan Salveggio's insight:

Honestly, the article pretty much directed my thoughts. It will be sad to see such an amazing actor leave the role of the doctor; and Matt Smith has so many qualities perfected for the role in Doctor Who.
