Media Diary (September 2020)

Some things Iโ€™ve experienced lately, in no particular order, and not necessarily only recent stuff:

Ratched (TV): I want another season immediately

I’m Thinking of Ending Things (Movie): This generally blew my face off

Rage (Book): Starting to think that this Trump guy may have made a few mistakes ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

The Boys (TV): Diabolically great as always

Class Action Park (Movie): Mindblowing

Challenger: The Final Flight (TV): Heartbreaking and maddening

Cuties (Movie): An important, emotional story (subsequently ruined by online morons)

The Three-Body Problem (Book): Have just started this, but am already being pulled into its world

We Are Who We Are (TV): An interesting look at military base teen culture

Feels Good Man (Movie): That poor, poor artist ๐Ÿ’€

Helter Skelter: An American Myth (TV): I’m perpetually fascinated by the Manson story

The New York Times Presents (TV): I liked this when it was The Weekly, and I feel like it’s been even better since the reboot

King of The Cruise (Movie): Powerful vibes from this guy

I Am A Killer: Released (TV): Quite a story

Coastal Elites (Movie): An interesting embrace of COVID constraints

Raised By Wolves (TV): Have just started this, but ๐Ÿ‘ so far

The Social Dilemma (Movie): There’s certainly much more to clarify/investigate for those that were shocked by this (I’ve heard criticism of the Hong Kong stuff specifically), but it’s a decent jumping-off point

The Third Day (TV): Also early with this, but I’m intrigued

Pure (TV): As someone with severe OCD (including “Pure-O” episodes), it’s awesome to see a show diving into this subject matter
