Required Reading: Lena Dunham’s Body, Hercules’ Abs and ‘Her’ Future

By  · Published on January 14th, 2014

The best movie culture writing from around the internet-o-sphere.

There will be a quiz later. Just leave a tab open for us, will ya?

“Lena Dunham’s body reveals the naked truth about our distorted values” – Emily Shire at The Week provides a level-headed, yet blunt, observation about how we deal with on-screen nudity. Great reading for the most overthought TV show of all time.

“Why Her Will Dominate UI Design Even More Than Minority Report” – Kyle Vanhemert at Wired pushes a few buttons in an exploration of design. One thing’s for certain: we get our science from science-fiction.

“G.B.F.” – Andrew Lapin at The Dissolve reviews a movie you probably haven’t heard of while scoffing at its ridiculously opaque MPAA rating.

“The Legend of Hercules By the Numbers” – Few studies are as important as this one from Amos Barshad at Grantland. All movies should be judged by how many flying, screaming air punches they have.
