13 Pop Culture Finds To Spark Some Discussion

Pop culture is often derided as being shallow and lightweight, but its impact should not be underestimated. From fashion to film, pop culture shapes the way we see the world and ourselves. It can be a powerful force for good, giving voice to marginalized groups and promoting important social causes. But it can also be used to sell products and influence behavior in dangerous ways. As consumers, we need to be aware of the power of pop culture and use it wisely. Otherwise, we risk becoming nothing more than pawns in somebody else's game.

We all know that pop culture is a huge part of our lives. It can be a source of entertainment, information, and even education. When it comes to pop culture, there are few things as universally loved as movies. Whether it's a heart-wrenching drama or an action-packed thriller, movies can take us on a journey like no other form of entertainment can. 

From superhero shields hiding in posters to the title of Jordan Peele’s new movie being dissected for all possible clues as to what it could possibly be about (we’re betting on sea monsters), here’s a bunch of pop culture revelations we dug up this week.
