Media Diary (March 2019)

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

Us (Movie): Fantastic, still thinking about it

Ministry of Evil: The Twisted Cult of Tony Alamo (TV): I’ve been fascinated with this group for a while, especially since one of their compounds is only a short drive from our house

Shazam! (Movie): Saw an early screening of this and was really surprised at how much I enjoyed it (it’s basically DC’s answer to the Spider-Man franchise)

Leaving Neverland (TV): This was gripping, but really hard to watch from an emotional standpoint

Boy Erased (Movie): A heartbreaking look at conversion therapy (with a random amazing performance by Flea!)

Captain Marvel (Movie): Really fun, and Brie Larson was great

Generation Why (Podcast): Interesting explorations of interesting topics

First Reformed (Movie): Really sparse, really powerful

The Case Against Adnan Syed (TV): I found the case compelling on Serial, and have enjoyed revisiting it here

The Inventor: Out For Blood in Silicon Valley (Movie): I’ve been obsessed with this story for a while, and this just fanned the flames

Arrested Development (TV): One of my all-time favorite shows, but this latest half-season isn’t life-changing

In God We Trump (Movie): Sad

BTK: A Killer Among Us (Movie): Evil can live anywhere
