Netflix’s Altered Carbon

I love the book. I love the character. I dig the choice of Joel Kinnaman as Takeshi Kovacs!

No Interest in Films Lately

Recently I've noticed that I've been less interested in going to the cinema. Most films don't seem to interest me at the moment. I think it came from a string of bullshit films that just left me disappointed. There's a whole series of superhero films that I don't even entertain. With the exception of Deadpool and Logan, two films I watched despite them being superhero films, I haven't watched any superhero film since X-Men 2. They are just so bad.

I suspect it's because I've been having a hard time suspending my disbelief. Usually that went hand in hand with immersion, but lately my demands of immersion have increased, probably due to a few really solid video games which have soaked me up, like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

I'm writing this post to act as a marker, so I can look back upon it a little later down the line to see if my understanding what is at play here has increased.

Films I’m Looking Forward To

As a mental note:

  • The Imitation Game
  • Foxcatcher
  • Blackhat
  • Mad Max: Fury Road
  • Terminator Genysis
  • Chappie
  • Hitman: Agent 47
  • The Jungle Book
  • Spectre
  • The Hunger Games - Mockingjay 2
  • MI:5

Maybe Kingsman and Entourage. Maybe.

This was in part to determine if I should buy an unlimited cinema subscription, something I'm loathed to do, and luckily as it stands there is no reason for it.
