No Time to Die (2021) 🍿

3/5 - For my first Bond film in years, it was pretty engaging. I imagine with all the context of the previous films, I would’ve enjoyed it more.

- music

Spotify wrapped time. Interesting mix; surprised by Green Day being so high.

Wish they generated a panel like this themselves rather than having to combine the screenshots myself.

Toy Story 4 (2019) 🍿

5/5 - What a beautiful movie. After avoiding it for fear of it just being another cash-grab sequel, I could not have been more wrong. The story is excellent and ends the saga well. The visuals are outstanding and far outshine anything I’ve seen recently.

Successful adult day: The integrated washing machine that came with my house died. One transplant operation later, and I got my old free-standing machine from my old place up and running. And I only sprayed a small bit of water over me; who knew that mains pressure was so high!

F Is for Family (Seasons 3, 4 & 5) 📺

4/5 - The show continues to improve. The last two seasons touch on much more serious subjects and the show really shines for it.

- musician

After many years of playing the trumpet, I’m giving the French horn a go. Ended up going to the Paxman music store and selecting this horn. While many of the techniques are similar, the difference in fingering positions and intonation makes me feel like a beginner all over again.

F Is for Family (Seasons 1 & 2) 📺

3/5 - Pretty good so far, could be tempted to raise it to a 4, but some of the jokes feel a little cliché.

The Birdcage (1996) 🍿

2/5 - I have mixed feelings about this one. (Spoilers ahead). There are some lovely moments, but some of the main characters are awful people, and it’s never resolved. They get away with treating people poorly when they should know better (Val), and it’s frustrating they’re never really confronted for it. I guess you could argue that part of the social commentary, but it left me with a bad taste in my mouth.
