It’s a proud day when a peripherally famous celebrity you have a crush on is papped. Maybe last month when you told people about him/her they responded with “who?” but that’s OK. That’s part of the build-up to a big “I told you so” victory. Shout out to the Oscar Isaac, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Riz Ahmed, and Rami Malek early adopters. Full Story

There was a rumour that these two broke up but apparently they are still together. I have watched all of Stranger Things but I don’t ship any of the cast or couples (fiction or non-fiction). And my biggest complaint about the show is that it is too aware of what the Internet says about it, it leans into the fandom too much, which is why I think Charlie’s character went from lovably tragic to actively good looking and heroic. Full Story

Here’s a cute, quick little royal story.  The Queen, no doubt, like all grandmothers, adores all her grandchildren.

Tomb Raider wants to be Indiana Jones but ends up more The Mummy (the good Rachel Weisz one, not the dumb Tom Cruise one). That’s not an insult—The Mummy is a good f*cking adventure movie. But The Mummy also doesn’t take itself seriously, and you can tell Tomb Raider has some Aspirations, because it’s a little too serious in tone for a movie about a girl who is really good at jumping and solving rock puzzles on a magic island. Full Story
