Posted a bit about my favourite films of 2019 along with some stats about my viewing of films last year.

Part way through Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet on Apple TV+ and it’s a really great show blending comedy and commentary on the creative process, gaming, the online world, fandom, and many other things. Episode 5 is a great short film on its own.

Really enjoying PICARD and how it recontextualizes many of the themes and ideas of the other Star Trek series and films. Plus Patrick Stewart is always such a joy to watch and listen to.

Grilled cheese and tomato soup that I made in the bread machine.

Watching François Truffaut’s 1971 film TWO ENGLISH GIRLS on The Criterion Channel. I was intrigued by it as Greta Gerwig cites it as one of her influences for LITTLE WOMEN. 🎥
