Review Day

There are no major spoilers in these reviews.

Day of Rage: How Trump Supporters Took the U.S. Capitol:
This is an investigative documentary about the events of January 6, 2021 built up from the many live recordings captured that day. While it's very visceral and worth watching to refresh your memory of why this day mattered, it's also pretty shallow and doesn't do anything to put these events in a broader context. Free on Youtube.

Final Grade: B-

Shadows and Shinings: Deluxe Edition by Drapht:
In this age of EPs and 30 minute albums, I never thought I'd be able to say that an album is too long ever again. However, 75 minutes is way too long. The album starts strong, leaning heavily on guest performances from the Australian hip-hop scene, but it all starts to sound the same about halfway through.

Final Grade: B

Jack Whitehall: At Large:
A few funny moments throughout, but it's hard to follow Michael McIntyre (who we watched just a few nights earlier). Relies a little too much on manic energy and delivery rather than material that's funny on its own. Free on Netflix.

Final Grade: B-

Shaun the Sheep: The Flight Before Christmas:
A charming, inoffensive Christmas special that Maia enjoyed. The lack of dialogue actually worked against it a little, as Maia sometimes had to ask what was going on. Free on Netflix.

Final Grade: B
