Where is the rest of this article? Seriously, it’s off to a good start, the kind of “New Yorker for gamers” article I feel all pleased as punch to be in a generation where I can indulge in this, but it just cuts off.

Film

I’m not a Kristen Stewart person (actually it’s more appropriate to say I don’t give a crap about actors in all but the most special of circumstances) but this Snow White/Joan of Arc mashup could totally be exploitative male-gaze indulgent refuse and I can still picture myself loving it to pieces I mean it’s Snow White in full plate armor.

SCIENCE!
