August is the kind of month where all I want to do is nap in front of the air-conditioner. Also, it doesn’t help that I’m dying to hear back from the fellowships and contests.
But nah, it’s fine, it’s cool, it’s awesome.
But you’re not here to hear me bitch and moan. No, you want to know what I watched, played, read, etc. Let’s go!
Turn – Still winding my way through the first season. I’m really liking this show but I’m still looking to get hooked.
Jane the Virgin – Wow! First, this show is a shining jewel of optimism in an otherwise gritty television landscape. Second, it feels like they’re burning through two scripts worth of plot in every episode so it never, ever, drags. Bravo.
Bloodline – I know this show is good but damn if it don’t feel like TV vegetables.
Ant-Man – Right down the middle. Not great. Not awful. Except for that poor girl’s wig. Can we get her a better wig for the next movie? How about a more flattering hair cut?
Mr. Holmes – A f**king lovely movie. Everyone should see it.
My Education by Susan Choi – I *loved* hating the main character. What a goddamn selfish child… but aren’t we all at that age? No, we’re not, but this girl…
The Nakeds by Lisa Glatt – Not bad. Somehow I didn’t fall in love with this book and I blame Susan Choi for writing such wonderfully rich characters. This book pales by comparison.
Batman: Arkham Knight
Astonishing X-Men: Xenogenesis – So apparently there’s an obsession with Emma Frost’s… big eyes…
Sensation Comics Featuring Wonder Woman
Batman: The Black Mirror – It’s clear why this is heralded as a modern classic. Go read it ASAP.
Injustice: Gods Among Us Year Four
DC Comics: Bombshells – How can you not love this series? Honestly, DC digital is just crushing it.
Hawkeye vs. Deadpool
Borderlands 2 – Goddamn this game has its hooks in me good.
That’s all folks. Hopefully next month I’ll feel less like this…
