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

“Does 300: Rise of an Empire hint at the end of an era?” – Steven Zeitchik crunches the domestic numbers to get a bead on what movie-goers want, and he’ll have even more data when a dozen more sword and sandal movies hit later this year.

“Able-Bodied Actors in Disability Drag: Why Disbaled Roles are Only For Disabled Performers” – Scott Jordan Harris at RogerEbert.com compares able-bodied actors in wheelchairs to blackface in a challenging essay on acceptable standards.

“Why I’m sick and tired of seeing naked women on HBO” – Edward Morrisey at The Week gives an excellent argument as to why he should probably just stop watching shows on HBO.
