Trish's Geek Out!
Want to binge on pop culture perspectives? Youtuber, Lindsay Ellis has done a series of videos that looks at The Male Gaze in Michael Bay’s Transformers. But in a twist, she doesn’t look at females, she focuses on the men in his movies. She’s a fan of his movies but has no problem picking apart the good and the bad. You can fall down the rabbit hole.
Jeremy's Geek Out!
We hate to bring up the same thing two weeks in a row, but the androids are making us do it. Season 3 of Westworld has come out and the folks are saying it’s good. However, Jeremy hasn’t gotten there. Perplexed, confused, and amazed by season two, Jeremy is going back and rewatching (for the third time.) It gets better each viewing and has amazing storytelling that any person will admire. The writers deserve serious accolades. If you haven’t watched it yet, put it on your quarantine binge list.
Our Suggested Isolation Movie List
We’re a world in lockdown. Across the world every country is experiencing some form of isolation. Currently we’re staying indoors and abusing our Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime subscriptions. It seems the world is split between appropriate “apocalypse” worthy movies. There are those looking to lift their spirits and ward off the misery and then there are those who want to see the worst-case scenario to feel better about life. Even here, Trish and Jeremy diverge in opinion...
