Media consumption in May 2024

Here's the very late list of some of the media I consumed in May 2024. Mostly, it's films, books, articles, and videos.

  • Bros., Lecce: We Eat at The Worst Michelin Starred Restaurant, Ever. Eating at a Michelin-star restauraint doesn't gurantee you a great meal.
  • You'll Never Find Me. A very decent psychological horror. 7/10.
  • Insidious: The Red Door. Barely decent horror. Previous works in the series are much better. 4/10
  • The Mothman Prophecies. Rewatched this oldie, and I think I liked it more when I was younger. 5/10.
  • Miller’s Girl. 5/10.
  • V/H/S/85. A pile of crap. 3/10.
  • When Evil Lurks. Also, a pile of crap. Just overrated in certain horror circles. 3/10.
  • The Last Voyage of Demeter. Even more crap. 2/10.
  • “We’ve Become Addicted to Explosions”. The IDF Unit Responsible for Demolishing Homes Across Gaza. This is just awful.
  • Delia Brown: Society Portraits and the Divine Feminine.. An interesting painter I didn't know about.
  • Generative AI Is Totally Shameless. I Want to Be It.
  • Beast. 4/10.
  • Mercy. This must be the worst film of the year. 2/10.
  • Abigail. Could have been better, but also much worse horror. 4/10.
  • Late Night with the Devil. 5/10.
  • You Should Have Left. Intriguing ideas, but also a somewhat weak plot and character development. 5/10.
  • A former PLA soldier hired by Russians gives a reality check on Russia-Ukraine war.
  • Anciients - Melt down the Crown.
  • The Old Guard. 5/10.
  • **Alan Alda on Effective Communication. **
  • The Irish Exit. I’ve always been fan of this way of leaving a party and I am practicing it to this day whenever I can. Interesting how it is called in different countries: “in Great Britain, they use the phrase "the French exit" or "the French leave" to mean the same thing. In turn, when you're in France, Russia, or Poland, they would say "leaving the English way". While in Germany, they would use "the Polish exit".”
  • Read Embroideries by Marjane Satrapi. A good one.
  • Read the novel Troldmanden fra Kreml by Giuliano da Empoli. An intriguing novel about Putin and how the elite of modern Russia functions.
