A Friday List #1

A Friday List #1

Despite feeling more tired than usual this week because ugh, it’s Daylight Saving Time again, I made it through the week alive. Here’s some proof:

  • I FINALLY saw Get Out. Yes, it’s that good. Yes, you should see it in the theater. As someone who has recently come around to horror movies, this was a perfect blend of social commentary and horror movie tropes. It’s entirely modern & classic. If you’ve seen it, I recommend getting some deeper podcast perspective: No, Totally and Black Girl Nerds.
  • Speaking of diverse voices in film: Rebecca Theodore on Diversity & Inclusion in Film Criticism.
  • I’m reading Papergirls & I love it. It’s written by Brian K. Vaughan who also writes my favorite graphic novel, Saga, plus it’s basically the answer to, “What if ANY of the many stories I grew up with as a kid in the ’80s about an unexpected group of children saving the day were about girls?”

Have a good weekend!
