THIS IS MARTIN BONNER will only be available on Netflix streaming for two more weeks so time is running out to see it there. Check out what Netflix users are saying about it-

"This film, which kind of started, wandered around a bit and then stopped, didn’t seem to have any point, depth or much reason for being."

"Sooner or later, I will forget I saw this film."

"You could take a nap during this film and not miss anything."

"The film is shot very amateurish with a screwy color correction."

"This would be best shown in a film school as what NOT to do in a film."

Chad Hartigan, ladies and gentlemen. Always a hit with the Netflix reviewers.

SPOTLIGHT: Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” Artwork x Famous Paintings

Look at what you’ve done, Nicki. This has gotten completely out of hand (can’t lie though… we’re not mad at it)! Last week Nicki Minaj revealed the cover art to her highly anticipated new single “Anaconda” dropping 7/28 and (as per usual) once the internet was graced with a beautiful, majestic thing, it took it and turned it into something else.

In this case… Nicki and her a$$ has found itself onto nearly every famous classic painting you could dream of! Continue getting your life after the jump:

#ArchivesCats FTW over #MuseumCats because #ArchivesCats can write letters.

These two were written by a sharp-witted gray tabby named Bright Eyes…ok, really it was painter Moses Soyer…to Soyer’s son David while David was away at camp.
