Stay away from him, Emma Stone! He’s bad news! (Actually, he seems like a pretty decent dude. What do I know?) (Lainey)

Roman Polanski can go fuck himself. (Celebitchy)

There’s ugly estate drama between the late Alan Thicke’s wife and Alan Thicke’s sons. The word “gold digger” is being tossed around. (Dlisted)

This was pretty shitty of Town & Country magazine.

The Mary Sue runs down 8 TV Nice Guys who are actually totally trash, and while I will let J.D. from Scrubs inclusion slide (he was nothing without Turk), I WILL NOT ABIDE BY JIM HALPERT’S INCLUSION. He wanted a better job, and career, for his family (and also himself, but also his family). And he didn’t homewreck Pam & Roy. ROY WAS AN ASSHOLE. #TeamJim (The Mary Sue)

No one is ever going to see Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote now, and you know what? I’m OK with that. (IndieWire)

Not my lane, but this piece on the influence — or lack thereof — of Donald Glover’s white partner (and Jordan Peele’s white wife, to a lesser extent) is fascinating. (Very Smart Brothas)

I loved The Toxic Avenger when I was a teenager, but it’s been a long while since I’ve seen it, and I am deeply skeptical given what I remember about it to believe that he’s the “superhero the world needs right now.” Really? Now? (FSR)

The film criticism field is overly populated with white men, but that’s not why I Feel Pretty received poor reviews, Amy. (Uproxx)

Look: I’m not saying that I agree with Jason’s headline here, but I’m not saying that I disagree with it, either (I liked it in spite of the ending): “The Big, Emotional Ending of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ is Fraudulent Bullshit.” (Flavorwire)

Related: Gwyneth reveals a pretty big spoiler about Infinity War: Part 2 and it actually is a big spoiler, but doesn’t necessarily spoil anything “important.” It’s more like a happy spoiler. (/Film)

Some weeks, I agree with Carly’s assessment that Riverdale is improved by its horror roots. Some weeks, I just miss what this show was before Hiram Lodge came along and borked what was once a very fun show. (SyFy)

May is Short Story Month. If you are familiar with the 80’s British tv show, Tales of the Unexpected, you probably know that Roald Dahl authored many short stories. "Bringing together decidedly odd landladies, cheating spouses, con artists, social climbers, eavesdroppers and other assorted ne’er-do-wells (plus the occasional innocent party), virtually none of the stories end up where you thought they would and most deliver a large dose of delicious schadenfreude." Do you have a favorite short story author? (Cannonball Read 10)

I have been watching this on loop for like five minutes and it gets funnier every single time. His look of triumph, the pointing to emphasize the result. Masterful.

Go over to Twitter to read the entire thread. It’s a journey. An amazing journey.

Nathan Fillion is returning to television with another cop drama. Hopefully, he’ll be nicer to his co-star this time. (Deadline)

Finally, I leave you with the infectious enthusiasm of Tom Holland.
