Review Day

There are no major spoilers in these reviews.

Superbloom by Misterwives:
This is the third album from Misterwives, which I like way more than Connect the Dots but not quite as much as their debut, Our Own House. Lots of catchy tunes this time around, and the album is even a whole 60 minutes long without much padding.

Final Grade: B+

Blindspotting (R):
We really enjoyed this Daveed Diggs vehicle which explores prejudice and racism in an interesting way without ever feeling too preachy. Both of the lead actors do a great job with their characters, and there are shades of 8 Mile in the way the story is told.

Final Grade: B+

Half Drunk Under a Full Moon by the Fratellis:
The Fratellis' pandemic album is solid if a little muted. I don't like it as much as Eyes Wide, Tongue-Tied although it does feature Rebecca's third trimester pregnancy anthem, "Find a place and lay your body down".

Final Grade: B

Bad Education:
This movie starring Hugh Jackman and Allison Janney as high school administrators ensnarled in an embezzlement scandal had a promising start -- not hilarious but worth finishing. Unfortunately, renting HBO movies through Amazon only gives you 24 hours to start and finish the movie (unlike the usual 48). We didn't realize this until we sat down the next night with an hour to go but only 20 minutes left on the rental.

Final Grade: Not Rated, but HBO gets a D
