You’ve Seen Star Wars, Now Watch These 7 Brilliant Movies You Probably Missed in 2015

Jan 8, 2016  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

There were some huge movies to come out in 2015 and most likely, you’ve seen the biggest. Despite its December release, Star Wars: The Force Awakens led the box office for the entire year by grossing a total of $750 million, with Jurassic World coming in second at $652M. However, plenty of flicks came out that we think were actually better than the biggest grossing ones and though some of them gained serious film festival and critical attention, the mass population didn’t flock to the theaters to see them.

Painting the costumed badass as if his mask has broken through a wall, the video is in obvious celebration of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The Carnally-Elegant World of Artist James Mortimer: Where the Mundane is Never What it Seems

Dec 4, 2015  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

James Mortimer not only has one of the coolest names in the Sherlock Holmes canon, he also happens to be an incredibly talented contemporary artist that pulls in comparisons to Dutch masters and Oscar Wilde. Considered to be one of the UK’s most promising artists, Mortimer is just as fascinating as the work he produces, mixing a calm tenderness with bursts of carnal energy and violence.

As a descendent of the 18th century painter John Hamilton, Mortimer isn’t just satisfied with one artistic medium, excelling at painting, drawing, watercolors, sculpture and quick sketch art. With influences that include the late 19th century fin de siècle era (which challenged the stuffy morality of the Victorians through excess and decadence), his pieces confront the viewe... Read More
