Flannel sheet season is here! Put them on your bed because they’ll make your nest a lot warmer, but be careful about which you chose—they are not all created equal. Good flannel sheets are unbleached, made from Portuguese flannel (widely known to be the world’s finest) and will be brushed on both sides at least a few times. They’ll have higher thread counts, feel more like cashmere, and get softer with every wash. The cheap ones—aside from feeling coarse like felt—will be bleached and develop thin spots after a few cleans. Also, they pill. That’ll be no bueno come February and March when you’re really sick and tired of the cold. So, skip the bargain brands that’ll wear out after a month and check out some of the most long-lasting, luxurious flannel sheets a guy could want.

Remote close-up watching TV

They don't make 'em like they used to. Older generations often harp on the inadequacies of modern filmmaking, from an overreliance on special effects to Hollywood's capitalist-driven quest to make seven sequels to every original movie. Whatever the reasoning is for hating 21st-century cinema, people who prefer old pictures have plenty of options when they tune in to streaming services like Netflix.

With a rotating selection of films that changes monthly, subscribers should always look for what's leaving and what's entering the service when logging into Netflix. For folks more interested in the glory of the 20th century, we have plenty of pre-2000 movies to pick from right here!

Gosling is a great actor, but he's also someone who knows where and when to push himself and when he should rely on the charms that come with his insanely good looks. He's younger than movie stars like Brad Pitt or George Clooney, but he definitely exists in the same mold. These are the best Ryan Gosling movies so far.

McConaughey in Mud

Matthew McConaughey has had quite an interesting career, to say the least. His filmography really is a story in three parts. When he first started out in the 1990s, McConaughey often played supporting roles in thoughtful dramas, bringing out the best in his co-stars. As he aged into the 2000s, Hollywood pinned him as a rom-com lead, and we can't ignore why. The man is pure swag and sex appeal, with a Texas accent that melts hearts and makes you want to go to the theater more than one time.

His third act was at the beginning of the 2010s when he became a true blockbuster, Academy Award-worthy star. Accolades for prestige biopics, fascinating sci-fi films, and more were very deserving and shined a light on a diverse and well-earned career. Now, McConaughey has taken a step back from acting for the most part, instead putting his focus on politics and other issues. Here are the 10 best Matthew McConaughey movies so far.
