  • April is always a weird movie month because new releases worth your time come out, but I’m still trying to catch up with 2022
  • It’s also been a great month for TV with Ted Lasso, Yellowjackets, and Succession’s return, as well as a new Damon Lindelof series and Star Trek: Picard sticking the landing!
  • I got most of the way through Metroid Prime: Remastered…before I remembered that you have to collect all those stupid artifacts. So I paused to play Zelda: A Link to the Past and brush up on my Breath of the Wild skills before Tears of the Kingdom’s release on May 12

Finished in April:

Star Trek: Picard: in a show that exists purely for nostalgic reasons, it finally remembers what we were nostalgic for in the first place.

(I’ll probably have a bit more to say on this one later)

Beau is Afraid: it’s not only beau
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever: what an emotional mess of a movie. It wasn’t great at a lot, but it deserves a lot of credit for fully considering the immeasurable loss of Chadwick Boseman
The Super Mario Bros. Movie: Worth the price of admission for a couple of soulful Jack Black ballads
Tetris: if you can suspend an L-shaped block’s worth of disbelief, there’s a lot of fun to be had here
