Killer of Sheep (1978)

Blindspot 2023 #4

Moneyball (2011)
[2nd watch]
[#40 in The All-New 100 Films in a Year Challenge 2023]
I’ve been intending to rewatch Moneyball for a while, because I didn’t much care for it the first time (read my original review for all the reasons why) but a lot of people seem to like it, so I thought it deserved a second chance. When it came up among “other movies you might like” after I watched Air, the time seemed right. And… well, I enjoyed it a little more this time, but I feel like most of my original criticisms (that it’s too much about sport and not enough about statistics; and that it doesn’t explain the sport at all for those of us who don’t know anything about baseball beyond that it’s a glorified version of rounders) still stand.

Fiction

On His Majesty's Secret Service by Charlie Higson
Chapter 4
Finally found some time to continue with this (it's already taking me longer to finish than anticipated/hoped, but I'm determined to not let it stretch out ridiculously, unlike the last one!)

this week on 100Films.co.uk

"This week on 100Films.co.uk" continues to really be "This Month..." because, once again, there's been no new reviews all month and it's now time for my two regular monthly columns.

First, the overall review of May...





Finally, all the stuff I didn't watch last month...





More next Sunday? We'll see...

Comics

2000 AD #2313
Into this year's progs, now — maybe one day I'll finally catchup. In fact, I'm not enjoying many of the series at this point, so I'm tempted to start skipping the ones I dislike — that would certainly help catch me up faster; but it's also kinda wasteful. I'll see how they go.

Games

Foolish Mortals (demo)

Resuming, and finishing, the demo I started last Friday — it only took about another 20 minutes (vs over an hour I played the other day), so I probably should've just finished it then. Hey-ho. It was good fun, anyway, and I'm looking forward to the full game.

Collection Count

Just one new addition for the final update of May 2023. The next couple of weeks are currently looking similarly as quiet, although there's always the possibility some preorders will ship early. If not, the last couple of weeks of June will be flooded with boutique label releases. Fun times.
