Battlestar Galactica, Season 1

Just did a rewatch of Season 1 and there was so much I had forgotten. Parts still age fantastically and the cliff hanger caught me completely off guard. I had forgotten all about it.

Rating: So Say We All.

Dread Nation

Historical fiction where the civil war was ended when zombies rose up rather than one side winning. I had a similar idea for a story so I decided to check this one out.

Rating: 3.5 zombies out of 5. I enjoyed it but don’t think I’ll ever read it again or look for any sequels.

Fletch

I need to rewatch the movie to properly compare it to the movie. The book was fine, I wish I hadn’t seen the movie before listening to the audiobook. I found the audiobook narrator so-so.

Rating: A fine book, I’d skip the audiobook.

2019 Golden Globes

A fine way to spend a Sunday night, though some of the jokes were truly cringe-worthy.

Unbreakable

I watched this movie back when it first came out, and rewatched it in preparation for Glass. Still quite a good film, though it moved quicker than I remembered.

Rating: Classic

Sunderland ‘Til I Die

The Hurricane Heist

A completely forgettable film for me despite being written at the intersection of two of my favorite genres: Heist films and Natural disaster films.

Rating: Gentle rain out of Cat. 5 Hurricanes

The Favourite

It is poorly marketed that I, my wife, and my mother-in-law all felt it was a comedy going in. There is definitely comedy in the movie, but I did not leave feeling I had just seen a comedy. That said, it is quite a good movie.

Rating: 4 out of 5 Racing Ducks

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

A wonderful period piece comedy on Amazon, truly fantastic writing that only got better in season 2.

Rating: Must see. Will laugh.

Casino Royale

I’ve seen it over a dozen times but it is still an enjoyable ride and it was an excellent way to introduce the world to Daniel Craig as Bond.
