Friday excitement only intensifies when you realize there's a holiday weekend ahead. Are you planning on doing anything fun? Since your wayward round-up scavenger (me) is still recovering from an ill-timed illness, I'm planning on laying about and watching a lot of horror movies. Color me ecstatic.
Some links, as you head into your long weekend:
- Contrary to what James Cameron might think, there's some value in "gender-swapped" blockbusters like Wonder Woman and Atomic Blonde. (Crooked Marquee)
- An older piece that I read lately and loved: Why horror films are actually providing some of the best roles for young actresses. (Vulture)
- Today is the day that the adult Harry Potter and his friends are officially seeing off the next generation to Hogwarts. In celebration of that, read this on how Harry Potter the series defined modern fandom. (The A/V Club)
- This isn’t a written piece, but one epically edited Marvel fanvid you need to get your eyes on. (YouTube)
