And lo, the middle of December did arrive, bringing NOW Magazine’s Holiday Movie Special to hundreds of thousands of people and begging them not to go see Mary Queen of Scots. You can pick it up everywhere today, or go for the home version, which includes this handy index of reviews as they’re published. (I’ll be posting things here on the day of release, because that’s my jam.)
But if you need some other stuff to read today, here’s our pop-culture gift guide, to which I contributed a thing, my latest Superhero Nonsense column, which is something of a grab bag … and my Top Ten Films of 2018, which is a little more curated.
