Media Diary (September 2022)

Some stuff I’ve experienced lately (and not necessarily only new releases):

Andor (TV): Off to a great start, and already feels very confident in itself

Funny Pages (Movie): Loved being dropped into this weird little world

Shame Spiral (Podcast): Don’t think I’ve ever heard more accurate OCD conversations on a podcast

The Lord of The Rings: The Rings of Power (TV): Definitely enjoying it (and the visual effects are among the best I’ve ever seen), but I do prefer the down-and-dirty House of The Dragon backstabbing

X (Movie): Stylish and fun, can’t wait to see Pearl

Sharp Tech With Ben Thompson (Podcast): Love the “expert paired with a regular person” setup

Dahmer – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story (TV): I mean of course I was gonna watch this (and of course my wife can barely handle it)

Crumb (Movie): Hadn’t re-watched in a long time, and think it honestly might be the best documentary ever made

Los Espookys (TV): So glad it’s back, this show is absolutely brilliant

Honk For Jesus. Save Your Soul. (Movie): Had high expectations, but thought it was pretty mediocre overall

Jurassic World Dominion (Movie): Had extremely low expectations after the scathing reviews, but was honestly kinda into it!

The Patient (TV): An intriguing concept (and love the short episodes!), curious to see how it plays out

American Gigolo (TV): Seeing how it unfolds, he’s definitely one of my favorite actors

McEnroe (Movie): He seems to have mellowed just a bit

Five Days at Memorial (TV): Harrowing and tragic

The Princess (Movie): Really impressed at how this was done entirely with existing footage (no narration/talking heads/etc.)

Russian Doll (TV): Super late to season two, but the updated premise seems solid

They Call Me Magic (TV): Continuing my random Lakers-related odyssey from last month
