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

Just leave a tab open for us, will ya?

“Batfleck, Fifty Shades of Grey and Fan Entitlement Syndrome” – Scott Mendelson groans at the weight of the hardest core making demands, then groans harder at the danger of studios listening.

“How Lucille Ball Made Star Trek Happen” – Devin Faraci at Badass Digest points to some pop culture history and another reason to love Lucy.

“The merits and flaws of belated sequels” – The gang at The Dissolve wade through a few decades of follow-ups and come out on the other side clean. By next week, the article will undoubtedly be adapted into a feature film.

“What Would the Next Roseanne Look Like?” – Alyssa Rosenberg looks into current social trends to envision a new working class TV world. (And try not to lose your mind that Roseanne is 25 years old.)
