Movies and Vapes

Filmmaking is the most powerful medium for advertising. As mentioned by Vape industry experts, Movies defined the culture of the generations. Sometimes, we see innovative technologies we once thought we could only see on screen, but now they are part of our lives.
Cigarette smoking was prevalent mainly in action films, probably because it was manly. However, over time, the health risk of cigarette smoking became more known.

My best Canadian movie of the Decade is Goon. It was not an easy choice because there were several good choices like Rebelle (Kim Nguyen, 2012), Birth of a Family (Tasha Hubbard, 2017), and Grave Encounters (The Vicious Brothers, 2011).
However, my heart was set on Goon because it is funny, bloody, and crass. For me, Canadian movies have always been boring. Still, Goon has a certain vulgarity to it that we can all enjoy.
