Media Diary (December 2018)

Some things I’ve enjoyed lately, in no particular order, and not necessarily only recent stuff:

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (Movie): So, so good

Bear Brook (Podcast): Chilling

Homecoming (TV): Loved the podcast, enjoying the show

Roma (Movie): Still processing this, it was extremely powerful

Believed (Podcast): Still listening through this (and being disturbed) on a recommendation from my wife

Tricky Dick and The Man in Black (TV): Great story that’s just as relevant for today’s absurd reality

Eighth Grade (Movie): Spot-on (at least from my vantage point as the father of kids around that age)

Broken Harts (Podcast): Social media smiles aren’t to be trusted

Aquaman (Movie): Big, dumb and pretty fun

Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath (TV): Remains great

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (Movie): The Coens, nailing it as always

Post Reports (Podcast): Great evening companion to The Daily

Hustlers, Hoaxsters, Pranksters, Jokesters and Ricky Jay (TV): Such a fascinating guy

Sorry To Bother You (Movie): Holy cow, this definitely took things up a notch

Ralph Breaks The Internet (Movie): Pretty fun, but I definitely prefer the original

United We Fan (Movie): Interesting look at the history of “save our show” fan campaigns (with a Gray Jones feature segment!)
