→ I’m reading the Scandals of Classic Hollywood book right now. There’s a bonus chapter on Anna May Wong at Buzzfeed and a new interview with author Anne Helen Petersen at The Hairpin (where it all began.)
→ I also read (and reviewed) Chris Taylor’s How Star Wars Conquered the Universe, which is great. It’s a pretty good overview of the franchise and the fandom.
→ Rebels, which I was bitching about last time, started up last night and I… Don’t hate it? I even feel slightly less annoyed that it exists this morning. These are good signs, seeing how I dreaded every season of The Clone Wars the way parents dread summer vacation.
→ This piece on Kramer vs. Kramer ends with some great observations on the state of movies and TV today.
→ How I feel about Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves (along with an early 80s gem, Conan the Destroyer) is how I imagine a lot of (or at least some of) Millennials feel about the prequels. It’s by no means a good movie, but I can’t help but eat it up. With a spoon. (More seasonally, this series tackled Hocus Pocus last year, a movie that I recall seeing in theaters just before I was too old for it.)
