This is the time of year when I get bogged down with all the series I follow. Some shows fall by the wayside while others get picked up if word of mouth or marketing is strong enough. Obviously I can’t devote a post every week (like with Bates Motel or Under the Dome) to every show I watch.

- Voyagers, 2021 - ★★ April 20, 2021It felt really good to be back in a movie theater. This movie was nothing special, however. Lord of the Flies in space that's only kind of good when it leans into its Lord of the Flies source material (or rip off, whatever).Solid visual effects but pretty bland story.
- Captain America: The Winter Soldier, 2014 - ★★★★½ April 18, 2021Watched on Saturday April 17, 2021.

Still quite a bit of fun.Podcast review on The Obsessive Viewer will come out probably tomorrow.
- Godzilla: King of the Monsters, 2019 - ★★★ April 6, 2021First time seeing it since the theater and I'm surprised to find I liked it quite a bit more than I remember. Solid monster movie.

- Kong: Skull Island, 2017 - ★★★½ April 5, 2021Really liked the time period, the location, and just the overall scale of Kong. All of that was really eye popping. Pretty solid all around.
