So we can all agree that the friend-zone isn’t real, right? Some “Nice Guy” complaining about how he got “friend-zoned” by a girl — because heaven knows that if a dude spends any time with a lady and does her the minium kindness like opens a door or doesn’t try to assault her, he deserves to get the sex — is pretty much the most obnoxious thing in the world but it continues happen, especially in the Internet’s darkest corners. If you hate the term “friend-zone” as much as I do, you’ll take great pleasure in this brilliant satire of the whole argument by Tumblr user literaryreference.

There are twenty-one films being screened in competition this year, from the new Coen brothers movie that inexplicably features Justin “Stinky” Timberlake (#NeverForget) to Ryan Gosling’s highly-anticipated second collaboration with Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn.

So today’s “Read of the Day is actually more of a “Watch of the Day” and warning: it is terrible.
