shadowfireflame: (Sherlock in Molly's lab)

I've been attempting to cope with the U.S. 2016 election results by going on a movie binge this week!

So Doctor Strange was enjoyable--not my favorite ever, but pretty good and visually lovely (and not just because of Benedict and Mads!). Same with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them for me. I had been hoping to enjoy both of them more than I did, but it’s all right because…

The movie Arrival, with the aliens? Fantastic! It's what Interstellar could have been with more humanity. Highly recommended, particularly for linguists (?!).

Also enjoying the new HBO show Westworld, South Park (as always), Fresh Off the Boat, Samantha Bee, and John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight.

I hope all Americans have a happy upcoming Thanksgiving, and a special shout-out to people who have loud, unavoidable relatives who voted for the new president-elect (*shudder*). I salute you all.

The bright spot is that in January at least there will be new Sherlock.

Did I say this in my entry? I am three or four eps into Westworld but am not totally sucked in yet. I'm going to stick with it though because the story is solid and I'm hoping it gets great.

I'm curious about where Westworld is going but more just fascinated by the aesthetics of it, I guess? It looks so beautiful to me.

I also hope it gets great!

Looking forward to Beasts - not really an HP fan, but it looks cool *g*

Love Last Week Tonight - or whatever I can see of it from Youtube. Although I bet John Oliver rather regrets his dare now :)

I know, if only he could take back his dare... I used to watch Jon Stewart and was sad when he retired, but it's allowed John Oliver and Samantha Bee to launch amazing shows, so that's great. I followed Trevor Noah for a few months but eventually had to give up because it just wasn't as funny or hard-hitting.

I hope you like Fantastic Beasts!
