I know 2017 feels like this…
But we have to stand our ground like…
Here’s what my eyeballs ate this month:
Supergirl – Gosh darn it, that Supergirl is totally winning!
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow
The Grinder – Before they dove into the deep end of serialization, this was damn fun.
The Knick – Probably the best show I watched this month. Might be the best thing I’ll see this year.
Son of Zorn
The Good Place – That ending… damn fine job!
Maron – So, was it just me or did that last shot feel a little sophomoric and cliche?
Luther – I’m sorry but you can’t just get rid of Alice.
Sherlock – Um, that “flashback” episode was awful.
Veep – Just started this series. Hot damn, it’s great!
The Cabin in the Woods
The Shallows – Once you get past that first reel with the forced family backstory, this flick kicks into high gear.
Zootopia – Maybe the best animated noir movie ever made.
John Wick – Was expecting so much more.
Prisoners – Some troubling messaging here (would probably do much better if released today).
A Monster Calls
Postcards from the Edge – Goddamn great writing from Carrie Fisher
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter – Hey, I liked (most of) these movies.
The Disaster Artist by Greg Sestero & Tom Bissell – It’s easy to laugh but at least he had the courage to release his movie.
In The Deep (The Shallows) – The script is better than the movie.
The Wall – Another great script. Can’t wait to see the movie.
Hotel Artemis – Can’t say much but it’s from the co-writer of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and Iron Man 3, so use that to gauge expectations.
20th Century Boys – I forgot that manga takes 20 volumes to tell a whole story.
DC Comics: Bombshells
Star Wars Battlefront – A great way to continue those Rogue One feelings.
And that’s all for January. See ya next month.
