Have you ever gotten to a certain point in the week where all you can think about is that excellent movie, or book, or TV show, or video game that's waiting for you to return to it when you're done working?
Certain shows have definitely been my escape lately (looking at you, The Magicians), and I'm among those who cannot wait to get to see Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse because I need me some adorable Miles Morales. That movie, in fact, is actually the subject of some of today's links!
