• Snow Crash
    Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson

    Still my favorite Neal Stephenson book, his story of the near future is both disturbing and hilarious.

  • Kong: Skull Island
    Kong: Skull Island by Jordan Vogt-Roberts

    Way better than the Peter Jackson Kong movie. Great cast, fun story, and entertaining throughout.

    La La Land by Damien Chazelle

    I wasn't sure what to expect, but this was surprisingly lovely and sweet with beautiful cinematography.

  • Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King
    Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King by Hasan Minhaj

    This far surpassed my already high expectations. Hilarious, smart, and enlightening.

  • Spider-Man: Homecoming

    Instead of yet another needless Spider-Man reboot, this fit seamlessly into the MCU in a fun, hilarious way.

  • Iron Fist (Season 1)
    Iron Fist (Season 1) by Scott Buck

    Not quite as high quality as the other Netflix Marvel series, but entertaining nonetheless.

    Powerfully told, funny and enraging, fascinating story.

    A great introduction to the different SVG features, best practices, and how to implement them

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 by James Gunn

    Though not quite as good as the original, Vol. 2 was still a complete blast.

    Hidden Figures by Theodore Melfi

    A great story that was uplifting, challenging, and eye-opening all at the same time.

    A fantastic overview of common responsive patterns and principles written in Ethan's charming voice.

    Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, & John Tiffany

    I was torn on reading this at first, but I thoroughly enjoyed the story. I only wish it had been a novelization.

  • The Fifth Season
    The Fifth Season by N. K. Jemisin

    I really enjoyed the unique world in this story, and how it all came together. I can't wait to read the next book.

  • Hamilton
    Hamilton by Lin-Manuel Miranda

    The music from Hamilton is brilliant, varied, and gets stuck in my head for days on end. I am fully in love with it.

    Beauty and the Beast (2017) by Bill Condon

    This was a beautifully crafted live-action remake that was true to the original and enjoyable on its own.

  • Doctor Strange
    Doctor Strange by Scott Derrickson

    Apart from disliking Benedict Cumberbatch with an American accent, I enjoyed the story immensely.

    Logan by James Mangold

    The grittiest, most realistic, and most brutal superhero movie I've seen. Intense, poignant, and a great final film.

    The Lives of Tao by Wesley Chu

    An easy read with a fun concept. A bit predictable, but entertaining in spite of it.

    Trevor Noah: Afraid of the Dark by Trevor Noah

    I've been enjoying Trevor Noah on the Daily Show, but hadn't seen his standup before. I was happily impressed!

    LEGO Batman by Chris McKay

    LEGO Batman had a good mix of humor, action, and heart.

    Seveneves by Neal Stephenson

    I really loved the first two thirds. I wish the last third had been a separate follow-up book (or series).

    X-Men: Apocalypse by Bryan Singer

    I've mostly enjoyed the X-Men reboot with the younger cast, but this one felt a bit forced.

    Suicide Squad by David Ayer

    Not as terrible as I feared after Batman v Superman, but DC is not playing at the same level as Marvel.

    Kubo and the Two Strings by Travis Knight

    Wow. Every scene was a masterpiece, with a fantastic story, great characters, and beautiful cinematography.

    One of my favorite comedians, Gaffigan makes just about everything funny without stooping to crass language.
