Where: Berlin, Germany
November 5, 2014 at 3:56 PM | by | Comments (0)

We get it. Porn festival? You’re hesitant, probably imagining the unrealistic sexcapades, neck-bearded men in trench coats, and theater seats equipped with lotion and tissue paper. Whatever your preconceived notions of a porn film festival may be, at Berlin’s Porn Film Festival last week, not to say none of the above occurred, but, well, none of that really occurred.

The festival stretched over four days at Cinema Moviemento in Kreuzberg and included lectures from prominent producers, porn workshops, and, obviously, an extensive range of films from softcore to hardcore to—err, how to put this—zombie porn.

So after spending roughly five days consuming more porn than a fifteen-year-old boy home alone on a Saturday night, here were some of our favorite lessons from this year’s Berlin Porn Film Festival.

Filmmakers love Florida for romantic beach scenes and car chases, but the state has been featured in plenty of scary movies, too. Here are three Florida filming locations that might seem scary on the big screen, but in reality they couldn't be more serene.

Wakulla Springs, one of the world's largest fresh water springs, is now a state park open daily for hiking, biking, and fishing.

Buckle Up with Elijah Wood in 'The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made'

October 23, 2014 at 10:15 AM | by | Comments (0)

"The Most Epic Safety Video Every Made." That's actually the title of Air New Zealand's newest mini-film, just posted yesterday and coming soon to its aircraft. It's definitely worth a watch, and we say this although we aren't the biggest Hobbit fans. It's just that good.

Starring Sir Peter Jackson, Elijah Wood, other actors from the Hobbit films, and three actual Air New Zealand flight attendants, the 4.5-minute video has already amassed over 500,000 views in its first 24 hours, and you can imagine how many more will actually get to watch it onboard an AirNZ plane before flying off to the land of Lord of the Rings locations.

This fresh video does feature a few details you won't hear from airlines who haven't updated their safety spiels lately, like the note including e-cigarettes as part of the "No Smoking" rule, and the ability to use "lightweight, handheld electronic devices at any time."
