save yourselves -
far more entertaining than initially expected. this made 2021 the year of
shirley - elizabeth
moss plays menace with glee. not fun, tough to pull away from as well.
the assistant - i can’t recall the
last time that you loathed a character that you never actually saw on screen
so much. oh, and seriously? boner injections are a thing?
women in blue
(PBS) - predates the murder of george floyd. we have a pretty different take
on chief arradondo these days.
the trial of the chicago 7 - the follow-on reading (notably this slate slate
is definitely worth doing. if i’d seen this before november 2020 i would
probably wouldn’t have slept for 3 months straight.
judas and the black messiah - whoa! there are major gaps in my historical
understanding of things.
the king of staten island - dumb fun. slightly feel good. oh and marisa
tomei is still around!
fake famous - :facepalm emoji:
bad trip - pure fumb dun.
godzilla vs. kong - as bad as you’d expected.
nomadland - i left with really mixed thoughts on this one. this defies easy
explanation. i get the oscar buzz though.
the last blockbuster
nobody - bob odenkirk delivers. about as dumb as you’d expect, and as fun as
seeing with fresh eyes: meaning, space, data, truth (edward tufte) -
basically a picture book for information dweebs. this isn’t as nicely
structured as some of his earlier work, but it’s still worth poring over
to hold up the sky (cixin liu) - first rate collection of short stories.
new york 2140 (kim stanley robinson) - the ministry for the future was one of
the most interesting books i read in 2020. this is every bit as good.
