What I’ve Been Watching: The Worst Person in the World in theaters. The third installment in Joachim Trier’s Oslo Trilogy is a perfect encapsulation of being in your thirties. It’s a beautiful exploration of uncertainty, desire, want, doubt, and purpose. It’s a movie I haven’t been able to stop thinking about since I saw it. And it’s the perfect opportunity to heed Director Bong’s advice and expand our cinematic horizons.
What I’ve Been Reading: Aquamen #1. This week’s new comic batch includes a new Aquaman series that sees Arthur Curry and Jackson Hyde team-up. With an Atlantean terror cell on the loose, Black Manta on their tail and the Death of the Justice League coming soon, things are getting heated in the Aquaverse.
What I’ve Been Eating: The Batman Calzony from Little Ceasers. You’ll get my full review on the site in the coming weeks but, for now, let me just say it’s the most Batman you can find in an $8 pizza right now.
What I’ve Been Playing: Backbone, the indie noir detective game staring anthropomorphized woodland creatures. Players control raccoon/detective Howard Lotor. Howard is hired by an otter to investigate her husband’s affair. But things get… complicated very quickly. It’s one of the most unique games I’ve ever played, and at only 5 hours, it’s almost harder not to play it.
