Culture Consumed 17

I’ve stopped doing aggregate Culture Consumed posts and started doing individual posts. I’ve had this post sitting since the Culture Consumed 16 post. Posting this final one for completeness. Just to record what I read and watched. The Watchmaker of Filigree Street – Natasha Pulley. Enjoyable Victorian steampunk, sci-fi story. I enjoyed it. Zoolander 2 […]

Culture Consumed 16

Hot on the heels of the stupidly long Culture Consumed 15 post, here is what I’ve read and watched so far in 2016. Joy – The latest film from the ensemble that gave us Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle. David O. Russell directs with Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, and Robert De Niro all back. […]

Culture Consumed 15

Here are the books and films I consumed between the previous culture consumed post and the end of last year. Jodorowsky’s Dune – Back in the mists of time (the 1970’s) cult film director Alejandro Jodorowsky was asked to direct a film adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune. The attempt never got made due to the […]

Books and films consumed since the previous post on 13th September. A Walk in the Woods – A film based on the mid-life crisis book by Bill Bryson. Alarmed by attending funerals of his peers, Bryson decides to hike the Appalachian Trail to prove to himself he isn’t past it. His wife, who thinks the […]

Culture Consumed 13

Culture consumed since the last list on 23rd August. Trainwreck – I’d never seen Amy Schumer in her Comedy Central TV show. So I went in to this not knowing what she was like. Both she and the film as a whole were really good. Funny, poignant, mostly well written and acted. Maybe a bit […]

Culture consumed this week. See previous post for more. Absolutely Anything – This was a bit erratic. The acting was good but the script was weak in places. Editing was weird. Liked the music though. I was pleasantly surprised to hear Roger Taylor singing the opening song. Rated 6/10. Pixels – The reviews for this […]

Culture Consumed 11

Another short culture consumed. As promised trying to avoid another monster post like the ninth one. Again, as stated in the last post, I need to get more reading done. Mysteries of Modern Physics: Time – Sean Carroll. Brilliant series of lectures on Time and how it’s interwoven into theories of modern physics and is […]

Culture Consumed 10

I’m trying not to let the Culture Consumed posts get as large as the last one! Only two films this time. Which tells me I need to finish reading a few more books! Inside Out – Pixar does it again. It’s probably not as good as The Incredibles, but Inside Out is a masterpiece. Studios […]

Culture Consumed 9

It’s been a while since I posted the last Culture Consumed. So this is a long one. What have I read and watched since the previous post on 25th April? As always, hat tip to Galactic Suburbia for the idea. Some mild spoilers contained below. John Wick – Keanu Reaves kicks some arse. A retired […]

Culture Consumed 8

Here is the culture I have consumed since the last list. As ever these posts totally rip off the segement of the same name in the Galactic Suburbia podcast. Some mild spoilers below. Insurgent – Part two of the Divergent series. Viewed as part of my #OneFilmPerWeek project that requires me to go see at […]
