Some days, you just can't drink enough coffee. Other days, you take solace in the fact that it's almost-Friday. (Wait, am I projecting again? Look, I'd apologize for it but this is all I have. IT'S ALL I HAVE. That, and the knowledge that I can once again call today Thorsday.)
Either way, we've got your daily reads right here:
- Is Game of Thrones' newly quickened pace more of a problem than a solution? There are definitely both pros and cons in this accelerated season. (Nerdist)
- Kathryn Bigelow's second feature, Near Dark, is her ultimate genre film. (The Ringer)
- Does the Marvel Cinematic Universe perpetuate the unfortunate concept of fragile masculinity, and how can it break the cycle? (/Film)
- Listen up: It's time to bend the knee (and stop mansplaining) to Sansa Stark on Game of Thrones. (Decider)
