Everyone has been talking about this movie for ages, but I am very bad at going to the movies. I have ambivalent feelings about Spider-Man* but I love animation, so I finally pulled myself together and went out to see it in the cinema.

And I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Thoughts follow, spoilers included )

* Which is awkward, because my most popular Marvel fic is about Spider-Man

Books
Daughter of Mystery (Alpennia #1) - Heather Rose Jones

Television
Agatha Christie's Poirot 5x08-10x03
Miss Marple (v. BBC, Joan Hickson) - an assortment of episodes, not in chronological order
Rosemary & Thyme 2x14 - this was randomly on TV, and I want to seek out more episodes because it was extremely silly but very cute. As I said on Twitter, I ship it on principle.

Movies
Thor: Ragnorok

Audio
The Adventure Zone 18-51, 58-60 - I got partway into the 2nd chapter of The Suffering Game and cut for spoilers, fictional injury )


I'm out of the habit of reading again, it seems. I'm looking forward to the new Murderbot novella coming out soon, and I have the second Alpennia novel to read.

Incidentally, is there a nice collective noun for this type of post? Content Consumption log?

Last night, A nominated me to choose a movie to watch, so I picked Gedo Senki | Tales from Earthsea, a DVD I bought about a decade ago and then never actually watched.

Thoughts below the cut, with spoilers. )

At risk of sounding like a scene from The Castle, in this entry I'm going to talk about the movies I watched on the in-flight entertainment instead of the actual trip.

Mr Holmes (2015) - the 93-year-old Holmes movie starring Ian McKellen

My thoughts )

Mistaken for Strangers (2014) - the documentary nominally about the National

My thoughts )


I also watched a Fall Out Boy concert recording that turned out to be post-Folie a Deux, so presumably pre-hiatus and therefore from like 2009? It was a fun time but unexpectedly dated. (Patrick with his cute little hat and not saying anything on stage though ♥.)
