San Francisco: 3D Printed. 10 of The Greatest Movie Endings of All Time [MAJOR SPOILERS] It was tough to ween down to only 10 because there are truly hundreds of incredible movie endings out there; so I will definitely have to make more lists!

10 of The Greatest Movie Endings of All Time [MAJOR SPOILERS]

But for now I'm going to discuss 10 film endings that made me shake my head in disbelief of how good they are. There will be a lot of ambiguous ones here but more often than not, they're some of the best! I'm going to have the names of the films visible and a link to the videos but any info will be given a spoiler cover in case you haven't seen the film and catch a glimpse of important stuff!

Art is a reflection of its era. With that in mind, it's not surprising that, in the age of apps and emojis, Ukrainian artist Nastya Nudnik is using the vocabulary of social media to rebrand familiar images for a digital world.

Her collection, Emoji-nation, reimagines some of art history's most celebrated works by adding symbols from our e-world — a move that challenges our conceptions of "traditional" art and makes museum masterpieces accessible to a wider audience. Nudnik's four-part series doesn't concentrate on a specific time period; it covers everything from Michelangelo to Degas to Magritte. However, for a 21st-century viewer, perhaps her most successful and moving interpretations are based on realist paintings by 20th-century American artist, Edward Hopper.
