Happy 4th! If you're US-based and in the mood for solid genre fare, might I recommend a movie about a shark who terrorizes a small island on this fine holiday? Or perhaps a ragtag team who bands together to save the world from an alien invasion? Or you could celebrate by reading all about the US-themed superheroes who have changed and evolved over the years. Your pick.
Oh, and happy birthday, Captain America!
- Steven Spielberg on how Jaws was almost a different movie. (EW)
- Marti Noxon on Sharp Objects, Joss Whedon, and Buffy’s feminist legacy. (Vulture)
- Why is America obsessed with Dead Girls? (Electric Lit)
- The importance of superheroes in times of crisis. (Birth.Movies.Death.)
