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

Just leave a tab open for us, will ya?

“What Really Makes Katniss Stand Out? Peeta, Her Movie Girlfriend” – Linda Holmes at NPR digs into The Hunger Games’ role reversal.

“12 Years a Slave Producer Arnon Milchan Confirms Israeli Spy Past” – He also produced Fight Club, but there’s a Confessions of a Dangerous Minds joke in here somewhere.

“Instant film recommendations for every sort of Thanksgiving” – The Dissolve forgot the Movies For People Who Chug All the Maker’s Mark-infused Egg Nog By 10am category, but otherwise it’s a solid list.

“Jena Malone on her Catching Fire Audition, Stripping in an Elevator, and Her Defense of Sucker Punch” – An interesting interview at Vulture, worth it for the thoughts on a film’s shelf-life alone.
