Tales of Monkey Island
Chapter 4 The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood
Another 50 minutes or so played, not that I can get an accurate time on this chapter now. It was, once again, a little too reliant on a couple of lengthy cut scenes in the middle to advance the plot. I read somewhere that, because this game was released as a series of downloadable chapters, each one had file size limits and so some decisions were made to keep sizes down. I wonder if the cut scenes were one of them — perhaps, without such limits, they would have been able to make those sections playable. It's not the end of the world, just unfortunate.

Frances Ha (2012)
Being a ditzy twentysomething in New York, hanging out with friends and going to parties, having a job as a dancer and earning just enough to get by, and nothing quite going to plan but it all kinda being ok anyway — all in black & white? I see why some people love this film. It’s a kind of obvious fantasy life for certain Artsy people. Of course, there’s not much drama in that (not that that would stop some filmmakers), and so Frances’s messy life begins to get messier. It may stop being a fantasy, but it’s certainly relatable to any of us who’ve failed at the things we’d dreamed of doing.
