    New York 2140 (Kim Stanley Robinson, 2017)

    The drowned world of New York in, well, 2140, shows us humanity’s resilience and inability to deal with sunk (literally) cost bias. The book lost me a few times with it’s many, many descriptions of the SuperVenice waterways and I didn’t quite buy any of the financial chicaneries which make up more of the book than I had expected, but overall it was a fun read.

    The Florida Project (Sean Baker, 2017)

    This was wonderful. I knew it was heartbreaking but didn’t realize it was also so funny. The kids are so natural, the adults so incredibly broken.

    Deadpool 2 (David Leitch, 2018)

    This was very funny. More like Naked Gun or the Scary Movie series than a “real” superhero movie.

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (Michel Gondry, 2004)

    Probably my third or fourth time watching this. I forget how many times I’ve seen it. 🙂

    Glad to see the special effects are still holding up well.
