5 Famous Artists Who Camouflaged Themselves in Their Own Paintings
Before impressionism and modernism took over, artists were never keen to draw their self-portraits. Unlike Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Picasso, or Frida Kahlo who had a panache to feature themselves in their own canvasses, the 16 & 17th-century artists never took the spotlight. Rather, they camouflaged their identity within the paintings - almost like a signature to endorse the artwork. Sometimes, artists deliberately used this technique to convey complex narratives which they could never portray since most of these artworks were commissioned by patrons with a different ideology or by the iron-handed church.
Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark is a movie that I remember not liking when I was a child. Later in my teenage years I re-watched the movie and discovered it was a really good. Now in my older years I wanted to test it out and see how I thought of it with today's climate of political correctness in mind.

Villainess Review: Kat Connolly (My Husband's Secret Brother)
I had been excited for this film for a good while, and a good bit of it involves one name: Lawrence. This film was a real-life family affair: the three Lawrence brothers, Joey, Matthew, and Andrew (the latter and youngest of the three serving as the director), Samantha Cope (Joey's fiancée) as the main protagonist, Jackie Everstone, and Joey's daughter, Charleston Lawrence, as Madison Everstone. The film sees Jackie making the final touches on her dance studio, which she co-owns with her best friend, Kat Connolly.
Cracking the Spine
I had an epiphany the other day, as I studied my small library of masterpieces, each book sitting neatly in a row on my bookshelf; upright, smart and proud (much like a young Scout achieving another worthless badge in ‘knot-tying’, as he beams brightly towards his parent’s who stand in the crowd reflecting back at him).
Nuances of Life: Dissecting Sandra Oh's Netflix Series "The Chair"
Netflix has gone and done it yet again. I just stumbled upon "The Chair" and one can't help but fall in love with its quirky storyline. In fact, I have yet to encounter such a profound plotline in the comedy-drama sphere and its writers certainly delivered on these hard-hitting parameters.
Story Structure Breakdown: Pulp Fiction
Pulp Fiction, directed by Quentin Tarantino, a non-linear, darkly comic, noire masterpiece that officially made QT a household name and a legend. This breakdown is going to be tricky, as the standard structure is there, it’s just in a different order. It’s three character journey’s: Jules, Vincent and Butch. Jules’s bookends the film, with Vincent and Butch’s in the middle, each with their own structure and told in linear order. The last act is Jules’s journey, even though chronologically the story ended when Butch drove off on Zed’s chopper. It seems confusing at first, but when you really break it down, as I’m about to, it’s not. I’m going to use WORLD STRUCTURE for the overall story, indicated below in bold titles, and CHARACTER STRUCTURE for each journey, indicated in brackets. And keep in mind this is just MY INTERPRETATION of the structure of Pulp Fiction using my own method that's a simpler version of Save The Cat. But maybe I’m totally wrong and you may have a completely different viewpoint. I’ll be using my Simple Screenplay Structure method to breaking it down, which I use for all my structure breakdowns. But enough rambling, let’s get this twisty-ass structure broken down, so get some Scooby snacks and settle in this is gonna be a long one!
The Old Guard
Introduction There was so much social media frenzy about the movie 'The Old Guard'. It was massive — a lot like the build-up to the ‘Extraction' movie. Not a surprise considering Netflix is not known for doing quiet or small. They tend to go big or go home. I really hoped it would be worth the hype and guess what, it was.
Why Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Should Continue Airing!
Ah, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles......... One of the biggest franchises of all time. These pizza-loving, crime fighting reptiles have been a huge part of most of our childhoods growing up! If you ask someone who grew up in the 80's, they'll probably tell you that they were BIG back in the day. From action figures, clothing, movies, food promotions, you name it, they were everywhere! But the hype mostly died down later on in the 90's.
