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?

“Broadcasting Beautiful Views 24 Hours a Day: You’re Tuned To The Scenery Channel” – Michelle Said at Bright Wall/Dark Room uses Back to the Future II and a personal time capsule to tell a story of growing up toward an idyllic 2015 that was really a two-tied nightmare.

“Kevin Smith’s Clerks follow-up was equally true to his vulgar soul” – Nathan Rabin at The Dissolve looks at the homemade career of Kevin Smith through the third nipple of his sophomore effort.

“Why I refuse to watch movies without spoilers” – Esther Inglis-Arkell at io9 apparently hates taking journeys without knowing the destination ahead of time. Words fail. A fascinating piece that’s like reading an alien’s diary entry.
