Quick Review Round Up

I read a lot. I watch (probably too much) TV. Here are some recent thoughts I’ve had.

The Just City by Jo Walton: I love Jo Walton. Among Others is one of the best books I’ve ever read, and since then I’ve eagerly anticipated every one of her books. I’ve yet to be disappointed with a new release. This is a great book about philosophy, friendship, gods, time travel, and robots.

The Shining Girls by Lauren Beukes: I started reading this one when it came out months ago and couldn’t get into it. Well, I don’t know what was wrong with me again because this was another one I loved. Great characters, great settings. There were times when the violence was a little too much for me, but what can you expect with a book about a serial killer?

Frequently Asked Questions about Time Travel: This was a fun little movie staring Chris O’Dowd and Anna Faris. It felt a little like a mix between The World’s End and Hot Tub Time Machine. It wasn’t a great movie, but it was an entertaining movie to watch while doing laundry and other chores around the apartment.

Leap Day: Sadly not the 30 Rock parody movie. There were so many actors I like in this movie, but it was still a disappointment. I’m so tired of the man reluctant to get married story line in romantic comedies. And the realizing at the last minute that you’re with the wrong person story lines. It’s cliched, lazy writing. The setting was beautiful, but that’s really the only part of the movie I really liked.

Bee and Puppycat: I recently caught up with this wonderful, weird, hilarious little cartoon. I love Bee, I love Puppycat. I love this show. Go check it out! http://frederator.com/bee-and-puppycat/

The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: This is Tina Fey’s latest show on Netflix. I had low expectations going in, but it was delightful. It’s charming, funny, and has the catchiest theme song ever.
