Insert low blow aimed at Harry Potter here.
I watched Jupiter Ascending last night with Becky. Cause I was like “Hey you know what, it turns out that I seem to have a soft spot for diamond in the rough scifi-fantasy stuff that never gets mainstream success. And then I finished watching the movie and it turned out that I don’t.
The first volume of Battle Angel Alita arrived on Saturday. I blasted through it pretty quick. The art is on point, but dat sympathetic villain tho. “How do I make people feel bad for this guy? How about we have him flushed down a toilet by his mother when he’s born and then later on pour petrol on him as a toddler, that should do it.” That isn’t even hyperbole. Kristof would love it.
Talking about things Kristof likes, he’s done a review on American Gods, the book. With season two of the show just around the corner, now seems like a good time to go tell you to read the book. Neil Gaiman is always a trip worth taking.
"He Who Shall Not Be Named?"
"No, He Who We'd Rather Not Talk About."
"I just received word, it's He Who We Can Never Remember the Name Of."
