10 Infamous Wonders of the World
There are 7 distinctly famous worldly wonders which inspire awe and demand intrigue, but mostly in the way of their unfathomable beauty. In Egypt, we have the Great Pyramids which to this day baffle even the most learned of engineers and architects, in their precision of construction and apparent lack of technological intervention (that is if you don’t buy the “ancient aliens” theories). In Arizona, we have the Grand Canyon, a profoundly gaping spectacle and standing proof of erosion’s mighty shovel. But in addition to these marvels of human and natural possibility, there also exists a darker counterpart: the creations and residuals of what less-than-admirable events have occurred during our collective human experience.

Top 10 Brain Melting Films
Sometimes the best feeling to experience from a film is confusion. While mainstream Hollywood loves to churn out countless hackneyed formula-followers, which tell us precisely when to cry or laugh or release tension, having everything spoon-fed and laid out so predictably is a very traditional approach to film. Sure each has its place, a comedy for when you need a good laugh or a romance for when you’re on a date and aren’t paying attention to what’s actually happening on-screen, but to be truly engaged by a film, it needs to take you on a ride through murky territory. Here, such prickly feelings as paranoia, insecurity, and apprehension can take hold as you wonder what could possibly come next sequentially. A good filmmaker leaves his audience in the dark, and not just because of cinematic conventions. For those who fancy disappearing at the bottom of that stimulation-filled abyss, exploring and beholding the various dissonant textures which lie within, these titles will be undoubtedly familiar.
