Watching, reading, and listening.

Hybrid live

As I mentioned previously, I saw Hybrid live in 2018; they announced a gig at The Marble Factory in Bristol, less than 45 minutes away from me, so I booked a pair of tickets. My companion hadn't heard of them before we arranged the night out so she gave Light of the Fearless a few listens during the week or so before and quite enjoyed it.

Baby Driver (2017)

My brother and I saw this in the cinema and enjoyed it, but less so after subsequent watches. It's still fun in places, but I find myself skipping bits as I do with some other movies.

Hybrid

Hybrid were recommended to me by a guy I knew from an online forum around 10 years ago when I was asking for music recommendations; I'd never heard of them so I added them to the list of artists I'd been given.

I only started watching this after someone's insistence that I do so, which seems to be happening a lot lately. I'd seen it all over Netflix but for some reason I didn't feel like watching it because it had a talking chimpanzee – I can't remember my reasons for that exactly.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World charity script read-through

The cast (most of them) read through what seemed to be the entire script via Zoom for charity. Not only did we get the sort-of movie itself, but we also got to see the cast members throwing in jokes and having fun with each other; it was heart-warming and added so much to the whole experience.

Extraction (2020)

This wasn't hugely clichéd but it was moderately so. Hero who's depressed from the loss of a loved one? Check. Attractive female who looks good even in the middle of a firefight? Check. A kid who doesn't trust the hero in the beginning but loves him by the end? Check.

Cloud Atlas (2012)

I've watched this movie six or seven times and have found myself skipping parts, but didn't do so this time and it was almost like seeing it for the first time; I seemed to have forgotten much about the beginning in particular.
