I’ve distilled March’s entertainment choices — good and bad — into easy-peasy sentence-bites.
If you’re trying to decide whether to continue reading this post, keep in mind that I accidentally watched Deuce Bigalow, Male Gigolo this month.
If that’s not tempting, I don’t know what is.
Zootopia (4/5). Adorable CG animals tackle heavy-hitting topics like racism, innate abilities, and friendship.
Deuce Bigalow, Male Gigolo (2.5/5). This “film” is surprisingly heartfelt for something so trite.*
(*I have no control over what my father-in-law puts on the TV.)
The Good Dinosaur (4/5). This movie is freaky — including an acid-trip sequence, some drug-addled adrenaline-junkie pterodactyls, and a character biting a living insect’s head off.
The Martian (4/5). The movie’s better than the book!
Not Safe with Nikki Glaser (5/5). This show has a sparkling array of unique, funny, dirty features.
Samantha Bee (4/5). One of my top Canadians (a difficult feat!) is conquering the medium of television.
Daredevil, Season 2 (3/5). I’m not finished yet, but I find this season disappointing and muddled.
