March 2023 Favourites
March was BIG in terms of things I enjoyed.
- Creed III (2023)- Everything about it I adored: Michael B. Jordan’s directorial debut, the editing, story, the performances, the soundtrack and score. A bit soured by recent events, but everything else I still think about positively. Will be tough to knock off my top spot this year but we have Dune and Barbie to come
- 65 (2023)
- The Town (2010)
- Tetris (2023)
- Enemy (2013)
- The Last of Us (2023) season 1 episodes 8 and 9 – Like most of the episodes, the last two were exceptional. It’s still by far the best thing of 2023 television for me.
- Shrinking – Hug of a show. Episode 8’s ending of “I fucking hate you” and “Well, I fucking love you” ruined me. Like Ted Lasso, it makes me laugh and then cry. It might be better than Ted Lasso!
- Grogu growing in the Mandalorian (season 3) – He’ll speak by the end of the season, I’m sure of it.
- Bonus: This concept art for season 3 episode 1 of The Mandalorian:
- Succession Power Rankings – Hung Up
- None of the Above: Reflections on Life Beyond the Binary – Travis Alabanza [audiobook)
- This month I learnt how to download unofficial works to my Kindle. So much better for my eyes!
- Let Me Down Easy – Daisy Jones and the Six – The soundtrack slaps. I need to see them live.
- Anthem – Dreamville, Big Sean, EST Gee – Creed III soundtrack
- Wake Me – Bleachers
- If This Was a Movie (Taylor’s Version) – Taylor Swift. Finallllly. Don’t talk to me about it being a Fearless track
- CHRONICALLY CAUTIOUS – Braden Bales
- Billy Crudup on SmartLess – He could give the guys a run for their money! So funny
- Jon Favreau talking about Justin Theroux on SmartLess
- The Mandalorian Deep Dives – Ringerverse with Joanna Robinson and Mallory Rubin
- Shadow and Bone cast interviews –
- The ERAS Tour set list – No one like her. 44 songs in 3.5 hours! Midnight Rain, ’tis the damn season, and august. My three favourites from the recent albums making it. I am not hopeful I’ll get tickets to any UK dates, but this is the next best thing. The Speak now is sad though, I have to laugh at the memes:
