Today, I wanted to review the paintings of Leighton. He specialized in genre paintings. His genre scenes went from current subjects to medieval times. Leighton took pride in his work. He would spend days on the decorations of the painting. Everything he did was both beautiful and highly realistic. I think that is everything worth mentioning. The first painting features a maiden giving a flower to her lover. Based on their attires, these folks are part of the upper Burgess class. The maiden's dress ,though simple, has some lovely white patterns. In any case, this lovely genre painting deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, a maiden is about to head out. A flaneur that is passing by is checking her out. The outdoor scenery is pretty. What is interesting is that the girl is looking at us. It almost seems that the viewer is the source of admiration. The maiden herself is stepping back to let us pass. Truly, this genre painting by Edmund Blair Leighton deserves 5 stars rating.
This painting is about the years that pass by. A entire generation of weirdies are on top of the balcony. The ones closer to the foreground are a boy and a girl. The dresses of this group are really pretty. Bellow them, an army officer is looking up at this cheering crowd. It must feel great to have such support. Troops need to be reminded of what they are fighting for... Aside from the realism, this image is very well cropped. It has the look of a photo. In any case, this lovely genre painting by Leighton deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, we see a maiden playing the Piano. Her teacher is trying to court her. The indoor scenery has a lot of lovely details. What I like best are the details of the music sheet. The painter took care to make certain that we know what music the maiden is playing. This painting by Edmund Blair Leighton deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, we see a couple entering a boat. Judging by their dresses, this must be their first date. Behind them, we see their future. A fat elderly couple are also looking for a boat. Everyone has fashionable attires. The scenery is pretty realistic. This lovely painting by Edmund Blair Leighton deserves 5 stars rating.
Since the old days, ladies had toy dogs. This elegant lady has a pet dogie. The gentleman entering his home is admiring his new neighbor. The maiden too is glancing at us. Both their dresses are quite fashionable. This lovely painting by Edmund Blair Leighton deserves 5 stars rating.
This painting features a common sight in the old days. This guy is a door to door salesman. The titled of this painting is his sale pitch. The laces that he is selling are very pretty. I find cute that each girl has a different colored hair. They represent three different kinds of beauty. This lovely painting by Leighton deserves 5 stars rating.
This painting is very cute. Two lovers are running away together. The girl is very well dressed. It seems that she is running away with a guy from a lower caste. The Greek garden is quite realistic. Truly, it deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, we see another couple running away together. This one focuses more on the girl. She is looking at us with a frightened expression. It is as if she is begging us not to rat her out to her parents. Behind them, we see a chapel. This lovely painting by Edmund Blair Leighton deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, we see a Catholic wedding. You can tell that it is a Catholic church because of the stained glass windows and the ornamentation. The bride does not seem to happy about marrying that old geezer. The maidens on the left seem sad. A younger guy on the husband's side is looking rather tense. Overall, this painting is everything, but merry. This last genre painting by Edmund Blair Leighton deserves 5 stars rating. I hope that you liked this genre painting a lot.
Here we have the next Leighton paintings. These featured paintings focus on the life of medieval knights. In this painting, the husband received a draft letter. He seems troubled by the prospects of returning to war. His young son is bringing him his gear. On the meantime, his wife is trying to question him about the nature of the letter he received. The decoration of his house is truly medieval. In any case, this lovely painting by Edmund Blair Leighton deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, a Queen is knighting her new follower. The ornaments in their attires are pretty realistic. It must have taken forever to paint that chain mail. The maiden herself is very pretty. This lovely medieval genre scene has earned 5 stars rating.
In this painting, a guy has been called to arms. He has just gotten out of his wedding and he must go to war. His joyful day has turned very sour. Their family too seems shocked. It is a real pity that this general was not able to enjoy his pretty wife before going to war. What I like best is the wedding dress of his pretty wife. This lovely painting by Edmund Blair Leighton deserves 5 stars rating.
This painting is about the spoils of war. This general is walking through the city that he has taken over. Behind him walks his trophy wench. The maiden seems very miserable. Beside her, a guy is picking up more loot. In the background, we see more feudal burning. Truly, this lovely medieval painting by Edmund Blair Leighton deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, we see a maiden saying goodbye to her lover boy. He is going off to war. The scenery and the ornamentation are rather lovely. As usual, the maiden's dress is very pretty. Leighton is not making stuff up. He went to a lot of museums to design the dresses of his characters. This romantic painting deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, a knight, his family and his servant are trying to escape. They went to a monastery to seek sanctuary. It is cute how the boy is looking back at his pursuers. Anyhow, this family is talking to the monk. While fleeing, they took all their wealth. In any case, this lovely painting by Leighton deserves 5 stars rating.
This painting features a young Templar. He is offering his sword in service to God. Beside him, his lady is praying. She is the earthly reason why he fights. Piety and love combined, both one deadly combination. It is cute how his gaze looks a bit crazed. By the open door, we see his squire. This lovely genre painting by Edmund Blair Leighton deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, a lady is painting the shadow of her knight. Her knight is trying very hard to stand still. During feudal times there was hardly anything to do. Therefore, this was an original take for a date. Both the couple's attire are quite realistic. This cute genre painting deserves 5 stars rating.
The first crown is the one worn by the king. However, the crown above him is the crown of thorns of Christ. While his citizens celebrate his return, the king is offering a silent prayer to his savior. This is the ideal Feudal society. This beautiful parade by Edmund Blair Leighton deserves 5 stars rating.
In this last painting, we see a very depressed knight. Based on the titled, he has just lost his jousting match. On the background, we see the victorious knight talking with the ladies. He was the one who gained the favor of the king. This lovely painting by Edmund Blair Leighton deserves 5 stars rating. I hope that you liked these knightly paintings.
In this painting, one of the medieval princess is stealing a kiss from a sleeping visitor. Her friends are also laughing in the face of this scene This cute romantic scene deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, the saint is giving out the daily to the poor. Behind her, we see more of her attendants. The first woman receiving the bread is an old widow. The next one in line is a single mother, with a baby. These people represent the poorest of the poor. The saint herself looks cute with her halo. The ornamentation on her dress are quite fine. Truly, this saintly painting by Leighton deserves 5 stars rating.
This painting is something that all musicians are familiar with. In the foreground, we see an old bard. He is no longer in style. Right now, the famous one ,with all the chicks, is the boy in the background. This painting shows that fame is transitory. There comes a time when you are old and no one likes your music. They say experience makes you a better person. However, when you lose your quickness and your grace, your fame departs with it. It is very rare for you to be famous, until your old age. In any case, this depressing painting by Edmund Blair Leighton deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, we see a maiden in the forest. She is looking around for her lover. Forest Tryst are still pretty popular even today. The forest scenery is pretty lovely. This cute couple by Edmund Blair Leighton deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, Lady Godiva's husband is telling her what she must do to lower the taxes. The maiden is holding onto the ledge of the table to keep herself from falling. What really drew my attention is the polar bear pelt. It is a bummer how they got two pelts, considering how little merchants used to travel during medieval time. Still, decoration wise, they work pretty well. In any case, this lovely painting by Leighton deserves 5 stars rating.
This painting is based on musical. The musical was based on Pygmalion. In that story, a flower girl was taking speech lessons so that she could pass for a lady. Here she is walking with her female escorts. The guy beside her is her teacher. In any case, this lovely painting deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, we see a maiden sticking a flag. The maiden looks cute with her dress. The medieval castle scenery is pretty realistic. This painting by Leighton deserves 5 stars rating.
After the song, the musician started flirting with the lady in pink. Her husband ,the king, is just arriving. This alludes to the awkward moment that will soon follow. If the musician is lucky, they might not hang him. It is a pity when damsels were forced to marry against their will. In any case, this cutie in pink deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, the king is offering his crown to a beggar. He loves her so much that he is willing to give up his kingdom for her. The beggar is flattered by his offer.

In the old days, girls used to get kidnapped for political reasons. This maiden is looking outside. The ladies of the citadel are keeping an eye on her. It must really suck to be in a hostage situation. In any case, this depressing medieval painting deserves 5 stars rating.
This is the only know record of this painting. It is located in an unknown land. Anyhow, this painting is about the angel of death. It has taken the baby of this sobbing mother. Interesting enough, the boatman is Charon. It is a lovely mixture of catholic and pagan symbols. In any case, this depressing painting by Leighton deserves 5 stars rating.
In this last painting, we see the new crowned king. He was the prince that helped to transition from the Jacobean era to the Victorian age. Anyhow, he ruled as a proxy king. Here his mother is showing off to the people. All the decorations are very pretty . Truly, this deserves 5 stars rating. I hope that you liked this last review of Leighton's work.
Aside from that, this book mentions Catholic missions to communist countries. Thanks to the communist, the Catholics received a new wave of martyrs who died for their religion. Modern day people think that the Catholic Church is stiff and antiquated. However, it would never have survived if it did not adapt to the changing times. Think about it, they survived the Romans, the Barbarian Invasion, Islam, Protestantism, the Enlightenment, the industrial Revolution, Communism, and the Digital Age.
In this painting, a maiden seems to be having a nightmare. The way she is contorting herself is rather cute. The castle over her is rather odd. In any case, this lovely surrealism painting of Siudmak deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, a maiden is performing magic. The figures she is casting is something else. Her magic is truly original. This lovely painting deserves 5 stars rating.

Here is another odd surrealism painting. A guy on horse back is passing through a ledge. For the background, we see a black and a blue horse. There is also a chick in the background. This cool painting deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, a maiden is hatching from an egg. The yolk is falling on the water. All over the place more eggs are floating about. In any case, this painting is about matter and how it begets new life. Truly, it deserves 5 stars rating.

In this painting, a boy is talking with himself. His reflection seems to be melting into himself. It is very strange and eerie. 5 stars for Siudmak.
This painting shows a surrealism messenger. He has fallen from the sky like a bolt of lightning. The lightning in his hand is his message. He is the prelude to a storm. Needless to say, he is both gagged and blindfolded. The scenery too is quite mysterious. Truly, this painting by Siudmak deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, this dead guy has changed form. Now he has become an angel. The colors are all brownish and somber. It really conveys a mysterious mood. 5 stars for Siudmak.
In this painting, we see a maiden revolting. Her rebellion is manifesting in the form of an eagle. It is really quite the passionate painting. 5 stars for Siudmak.
This painting is a bit matrix themed. Here this maiden is sleeping in a cradle made of metal. It looks cold and inhumane. I am all for futurism. However, I do not like much the bed of the future. In any case, this painting by Siudmak deserves 5 stars rating.
In this painting, we see a surrealism princess. On one side, she has her court wizard. On the other, we have a guy with a fan. Behind her, her mirror reflects other worlds.

This painting is about Genesis. A God the size of a Galaxy is bringing life into planet earth. It is cool how his hair looks like some nebula. This cute space illustration deserves 5 stars rating.
This surrealism still life has to do with the passing seasons. One clock has a rose, that stands for spring. The other has a skull that stands for winter. This lovely painting by Siudmak deserves 5 stars rating.
Well, there are three weirdoes. The title of this painting just about tells you what this illustration is all about. 5 stars and lets move right along.
This last featured painting is about Vanity. A lot of painters attack such a theme. For Siudmak, Vanity is shown by an falcon, a skull and floating book. Like such themes, it shows the transience of human life. In the end, we all become part of history. In any case, this lovely painting by Siudmak deserves 5 stars rating.
The first painting shows a flag bearer. His hat is pretty odd castle of sorts. If you look closely you may find a weird angry face in the flag. Anyhow, this guy is looking at the desolate scenery. Overall, this painting is pretty depressing. It deserves 5 stars rating.

Recently, I decided to review movies again. To get the ball rolling, I wanted to review my two favorite James Bond movies. These movies are "Die Another Day" and "the World is not Enough". The best part of both movies were the opening credits. Like we all know, James Bond movies require a good opening song. These movies had some of the best sequences. One was about oil and the other about fire and ice chicks. Special effects wise, they were pretty original.
Storyline wise, they were pretty interesting. In the World is not Enough, James Bond's prowess blinded him to the identity of the true bad guy or in this case bad girl. The final fight sequence in the submarine was pretty cool. It had just about the right amount of exaggeration. Needless to say, James Bond could hold his breath underwater for a pretty long time.
As for Die Another Day, Jinx was pretty cute. She was James Bond's romantic interest in that movie. She was kinda like the American chick version of Mr. Bond. Like in the previous movies, the bad guys were major cliches. They looked as if they came straight out of a comic book.
My favorite exaggeration was when James Bond was able to elude the lazer bean of Ikarus. Originally, the fancy satellite was called Ignorance. I know because I saw the movie in theaters. It is a bummer why they changed the name to Ikarus.
Another thing that I liked about this movie was the sword fight sequences. Truly, it was amazingly choreographed. It was cute how Mr. Bond and the final boss kept upgrading weapons. They went from fighting with sabers to fighting with claymores. Truly, it was quite entertaining. Another thing that I liked was when Bond told the final boss, "So you live to Die another day." That phrase was well place.
Before I finish, I wish to speak a bit on the new James Bond movies. Frankly, I do not like the new James Bond, Daniel Craig. The old James Bond, Pierce Brosnan, looked a lot more like the original comic book character. Also Craig is less charming than the previous James Bond.
Speaking of which, Craig's first appearance in the James Bond movie was really, really bad. From all the James Bond movies I seen, Casino Royale was horrible. It was a real torture to watch. Trust me, I had a front row seat in the theater were I saw it. Speaking of torture, the torture that Bond experience in this movie was pretty silly. Frankly, I found more creative Die Another Day's torture system. I guess that is what happens when you leave it to amateurs.
The Quantum of Solace was a pretty decent James Bond movie. The opening Sequence was visually appealing. However, I did not like the chosen opening song. As for Skyfall, Adele sang quite the beautiful theme song for the movie. I have still to watch Skyfall. However, my mother said not to bother because she had already seen it. She claims that the movie was pretty bad. Could this be the end for the James Bond movies? Regardless, the mentioned films (except for Skyfall and Casino Royale) are all 5 stars worthy.
About a month ago, I started watching The Borgias. I only watched the last season. For being such an interesting historical show, it is a bummer how I kept missing it. During the summer, I had nothing else to do. Thus, I gave chances to random T.V. shows. This was one of such shows that peaked my interest.
Frankly, I did not know much about the time period portrayed in this show. I only knew two characters in the entire show. Historical wise, I knew Cesare Borgia and Machiavelli. Frankly, I knew about them both because of the Prince. I did not know that Cesare had an unhealthily love for his sister, Lucretia.
Aside from the random history lessons, I liked a lot the costumes. The dresses of the maidens were always very pretty. I always had a weakness for such pretty dresses. Aside from the dresses and the drama, the romances in the show were pretty messed up. I suppose such graphic scenes must be a strategy for selling the show.
In the end, some things cannot be helped. Overall, the Borgias was a pretty interesting Showtime series. I cannot wait to see what new episodes they have planned for the show. Truly, the Borgias is a 5 stars worthy historical show, despite their unhistorical fancies.
I suppose it is a good a time as any to review TV series. The next one on the menu is Nurse Jackie. For those that have not seen it, Nurse Jackie is a show about a nurse who has drug problems. Her job in emergency care is very stressing. Thus, she takes drugs to relax. Unlike most doctors, Nurse Jackie really cares about her patients.
In many episodes, we see how well she treats her patients. I started watching the series around the end of season 4. I think that was the season were she got divorced. In the last one that followed, she tried to treat her drug problems. She almost made it through a whole year without taking a single pill. However, problems forced her to take her chill pill.
In the end, this show takes a down to earth approach to drug addicts. It shows you that not all of them are rotten teenagers. Among the new characters introduced to the show, I liked a lot the police officer and the blonde student. The officer was Jackie's new romantic interest. The blonde girl was an intern.
Overall, the show gives you an insider's perspective on how a hospital is run. From all the jobs available, being a doctor is pretty stressing. It is even worst for those that have hearth. In the end, doctors must create a balance. If they get too attached to their work they get depressed. If they become too unattached, they might neglect their patients like the blonde intern. In any case, Nurse Jackie is a 5 stars worthy showtime series.
The first HBO show worth reviewing is Boardwalk Empire. I have watched the show from the very beginning. For those that have not seen it, Boardwalk Empire is a show about the Prohibition period. There you see the works of all the greatest gangsters of their day. Nucky Thomson is the main character of the story.
Based on the presentation, Nucky is trying to ride this Prohibition wave to make money. He knows that this period will not last forever. He cannot waste this business opportunity. The storyline also covers the lives of a lot of characters. It starts with just some regular liquor smuggling. Eventually, it expands to some major gangster violence.
From the seasons, I like best the first one and the third season. The even numbers are peachy. In the first season, it introduces all the main characters in a witty fashion. In the third season, the violence begins to escalate. There Nucky almost gets arrested. I think that is everything worth mentioning. Now let us move onto the next showtime show.
The next show worth reviewing is called Family Tree. Family Tree is a show about a British guy who is curious about his family. One day, when one of his relative dies, a photo sends him on a soul searching quest. Via this first clue, he starts building up his family tree. His quest takes him all over Britain and even to the US. So far, HBO has only made the first season. From what I seen, Family Tree has a 5 stars worthy show.
Following, I want to review Vice. Vice is a documentary show. Basically, the Vice crew goes around the world reporting on interesting news. So far, I have seen some documentaries on dating in china, wresting in Africa, guns in school, and the Economic Crisis in Europe. All the reporters have been very interesting. In any case, Vice deserves 5 stars rating.
The last HBO show worth reviewing is Veep. The show is about a Vice President chick. She kinda reminds me of Sarah Palin. Anyhow, this show is pretty funny. It shows you how hard it is to be a Vice President. Overall, there is a lot of yelling involved in this show. For some reason, everyone seems angry all the time. In any case, these HBO shows deserve 5 stars rating. I hope that you like these short reviews.
A few days ago, I watched the movie Life of Pi. The movie is based on a book. The movie is about a Hindu castaway. Like most castaway movies, it is totally depressing. The main character, Pi, must surviving alone in the Pacific. To make matters worse, he is stuck on a boat with a Bengal Tiger. The movie begins with the writer of the book interviewing Pi. A friend told him that Pi had a very interesting story for him.
From then on, the movie begins. I thought it was cute how Pi kept changing religions. He started with Vishnu, then he met Jesus and lastly Allah. His father told him that he was a fool to believe everything. He should pick one religion and stick to it. The writer also thought Pi was being silly for practicing so many religions. Even in the present, Pi had taken up some new religions, like Judaism.
The movie gets pretty depressing when the family is forced to sell their Zoo. The father wanted to transport the animals to American to sell them. One night, Pi's whimsical nature made him get up to watch the storm by the sea. While outside, the ship's alarms goes off. He tries to warn his family. Yet, the ship is going Titanic really fast.
Pi manages to get into a life boat. While struggling, he manages to see the ship sunken bellow the water. The scene was visually appealing. When the storm passes, he gets several unlikely passengers: a zebra, an orangutan and a hyena. Once they croak, the tiger, Richard Parker, enters the scene. I found interesting the story of how the Tiger got a human name. I think I said enough about the plot.
I do not want to spoil the ending. Speaking of the ending, it is a bit baffling. It leaves you wondering what truly happened to Pi. Regardless, I prefer the version with the Tiger. Visually speaking, it was a masterpiece. My favorite part was when Pi went through a second storm in the Pacific Ocean. After the storm died, the sea was calm, flat as pancake.
The movie made you feel small in the face of nature. Speaking of nature, the island that looked like a sleeping person was most mysterious. What most freaked me out were the cute lil animals. I forget what they are called. Plus, I am feeling a bit lazy. The ending credits were pretty interesting. The making of this movie created a lot of jobs. In any case, the Life of Pi is a 5 stars worthy movie. I recommend it to all the family.
