Favorite Movies and TV Shows
By the time you are reading this, the Oscars will have already happened. However, I am still going to tell you about some of my favorite movies and television shows I’ve watched this year. First and foremost, if you see any large superhero blockbuster it must be the wildly popular and successful “Black Panther.” Rounded out by an incredible cast and amazing director this movie is not only outstanding by Marvel movie standards but it fits my criteria as a good movie. The film has a message, it is fun, it is well acted, and now we are one step closer to having more diversity in high budget Hollywood films. In terms of television, I would recommend “The Venture Bros” to anyone who is a fan of Adult Swim (and Rick and Morty in particular). It’s basically a parody of Johnny Quest, comic books, and generally weird stuff that mixes and mashes together as a wildly sporadic but entertaining show. Good animation mixed with stellar voice acting and writing, it is a must watch for anyone who likes weird adult humor and sci-fi action.
Speaking of weird this is where I will tell you about “Black Mirror” and why it is incredible. The anthology series is surely inspired by Twilight Zone but it has created its own legacy by showing us a darker side of the technology we as humans hold dear. In each episode we see a future affected by a piece of technology that drastically changes how we interact as humans. Anybody wanting to see a creative view on the future, I would definitely check it out, as well as the other two recommendations!
