Media Bites – May 2019

May both seemed like a busy month but also a slow month for us but I do feel like I got a lot of media consumption in, including the epic series finale of Game of Thrones, as well as seeing The Suffers and Foxing in concert. Movies Avengers: Endgame – Yeah, I saw it in the theaters a third and fourth time. It’s that damn good. I have a lot to say about this movie, so I wrote a ridiculous

Media Bites – April 2019

April was a busy month with work and travel (both personal and business) but I did manage to get a bunch of movies and TV in this month, and it was a mostly decent month for music, as well – including some surprise new music from two of my favorite bands, and a new song from Bruce Springsteen that I’m not too in love with. BUT! It’s Avengers: Endgame month! Movies Shazam – I’ve pretty much written off all DC

Media Bites – March 2019

This month was decent for movies, but very lacking for new TV. Here’s my wrap up of some of the movies, television shows, music, and other media that I’ve consumed and thought was worth sharing for the month of March 2019. Movies Captain Marvel – I knew a little about the character going in, but not much about the story. I knew Carol’s origin in becoming Ms. Marvel (and later Captain Marvel at least in the comics) and had made

Media Bites – February 2019

This month was decent for TV, but very lacking for new music which is usually my favorite part of these posts. Here’s my wrap up of some of the movies, television shows, music, and other media that I’ve consumed and thought was worth sharing for the month of February 2019. Movies The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part – There was no way that this sequel could ever live up to the first movie and trying to recapture that would

Media Bites – January 2019

I caught up on some of the movies that we didn’t get to over the holiday break that we hadn’t seen throughout 2018. Here’s my wrap up of some of the movies, television shows, music, and other media that I’ve consumed and thought was worth sharing for the month of January 2019. Movies Bad Times at the El Royale – Jon Hamm was really good as a southern gentleman type for his opening monologue in the lobby, and then the

Media Bites – December 2018

We tried to sneak a bunch of movies into the holiday break to catch up on some that we hadn’t seen throughout the year. We didn’t succeed in watching our whole list, but we knocked out a great deal. That said, here’s my wrap up of some of the movies, television shows, music, and other media that I’ve consumed and thought was worth sharing for the month of December 2018. I’ll have a Best of 2018 post up soon. Movies Green

Media Bites – November 2018

We’re starting to get into regular viewings of TV and movies, but the holidays will definitely put a stop to that. Here’s my wrap up of some of the movies, television shows, music, and other media that I’ve consumed and thought was worth sharing for the month of November 2018. Movies The Ballad of Buster Scruggs – Technically not a movie, but a collection of short stories or vignettes. It was really good. I wish some segments were longer, particularly The Ballad

Media Bites – October 2018

Another light month for movies and TV shows, but here’s my wrap up of some of the movies, television shows, music, and other media that I’ve consumed and thought was worth sharing for the month of October 2018. Movies A Star is Born – I don’t care for Bradley Cooper or Lady Gaga, and was bored to death in this movie. The story moved too fast, or if it was meant to take place over months or years they did

Media Bites – September 2018

Ali and I are getting back into a normal groove and getting more downtime in which we’re able to enjoy more media, which is a welcome place to be after the past few months. That said, here’s a quick review of some of the movies, television shows, music, and other media that I’ve consumed and thought was worth sharing for the month of September 2018. Movies Blackkklansman – This movie had been on my list for a while, and we finally

Media Bites – August 2018

Like the last few months, this month’s Media Bites is kind of lacking since we’ve spent most of our time dealing with moving to, unpacking, and dealing with house drama, but here’s a quick review of some of the movies, television shows, music, and other media that I’ve consumed and thought was worth sharing for the month of August 2018. Movies Sorry to Bother You – We went to see this to escape the hotel room we were living in while
