Taking a little week to relax while work took over as it inched towards a huge deadline, things somewhat are a bit slower and less completed than I’d have wanted. However, it did give me back the energy I need to kick things back into action. With that said, here’s what’s up the past week!
Currently reading: Legends of the Exiles
Not going to lie that reading has yet again dropped down this week. Its mostly fatigue getting in the way as I just can’t find the energy to read more than a few pages without dozing off or wanting to take the reading time and do some writing. Moved forward slightly on Legends of the Exiles and its a pretty good book just still not too far ahead so hard to say much more about it.
- Cube Escape: The Mill
- Cube Escape: Birthday
As I continue to work through the Cube Escape games, or in general the Rusty Lake games. The majority which so far are all replays. Its a lot of fun to dive back into and see a little more of how each game has its place in the spectrum of the story itself. While it wasn’t deliberate, the second half of the Cube Escape is much more animated and the games so far have more depth as well.
- Summer of ’84 (2018) Review
- The Divine Fury (2019)
- Pushing Hands (1991)
Currently watching: The Wedding Banquet
As I try to wrap up the horror marathon and also get some other viewing obligations done, this week has been primarily those goals. With that said, all the movies this week were around the same score so with that said, The Divine Fury being a screener and upcoming release on November 19 is the one that I took the time to watch two times and saw a depth to its execution and horror elements. The review coming out around the release date will have more on that.
As for Pushing Hands and The Wedding Banquet, Movies and Tea is stepping into our Season 4 soon and we are looking Ang Lee’s filmography. We are kicking off with his Father Knows Best Trilogy.
- Creepshow (Season 1, 2019)
- Queer Eye: We’re in Japan! (Season 1, 2019)
Currently binging: Super Nova Games 2, When I Grow Up, The Inn (Season 3), Lipstick Prince (Season 2), Soft Memory, Bromance, Relation Ship
It seems busy times means an increase in TV. I don’t even know why. Either way, we wrapped up Creepshow on Shudder and that was an okay experience. Some good, some great and some meh stories mixed together in these 12 short stories over 6 episodes. Because of that, you can’t really beat out Queer Eye: We’re in Japan which had 4 episodes that tugged on heartstrings like crazy and had me tearing up a ton especially because Asian culture and stuff is something that I can relate to even though Japanese and Chinese values are different.
As for some fun new shows to start, Lipstick Prince Season 2 is back and episode 1 was so much fun. It is going to be a fun season. I can already tell. At the same time, The Inn Season 3 started up which has a more competitive structure to it this time around but I’m not quite sure how I feel about it yet but the celebrities involved are quite good. As for Soft Memory and Bromance, those two should be wrapped up in the coming week.
That’s it for this week’s What’s Up!
