Saturdays are for coffee and sleeping in -- unless you're me this weekend, and then they're for coffee, finding links, and playing Rise of the Tomb Raider. I'm a little behind on things, but I want to finish both Tomb Raider games before the movie comes out next month. So close! Yet so far.
- Annihilation is a reminder that Natalie Portman is one of the best actresses working today. (Slashfilm)
- What should win the Oscar for Best Picture? A case for every nominee. (Esquire)
- The queerness of Janelle Monae’s new music video is explicit, ecstatic, and self-directed. (And totally gives me "San Junipero" vibes!) (Vulture)
- In praise of the underrated Shape of Water, which will probably win at least one Oscar this year. (Vogue)
