Review Day

There are no major spoilers in these reviews.

Michael McIntyre: Showman:
This is a great set by British comedian, Michael McIntyre, featuring observational / storytelling humor. We really enjoyed his bit on Internet passwords. Free on Netflix.

Final Grade: A

Together Together (R):
This is a quiet indie film about Ed Helms' character seeking a surrogate so he can raise a child on his own. The vibe is fairly mellow throughout and it rarely falls into the more obvious jokes and tropes one might expect.

Final Grade: B-

No Rules Rules: Netflix and the Culture of Reinvention by Reed Hastings and Erin Meyer:
Books where the CEO of a company talks about why his company is so great are a dime a dozen. This one has some interesting stories (mixed into the obvious company rah-rah) that describe how Netflix continues to survive and pivot from its origins by increasing talent density and candor while removing rules and roadblocks.

Final Grade: B-

Golden Age by Woodkid:
I picked this CD up based on Woodkid's contribution to the Arcane soundtrack. All of the songs are pretty interesting -- as if Cosmo Sheldrake, Muse, and Imagine Dragons collaborated to make video game music. Run Boy Run is a good representative track.

Final Grade: B
