I've got a fat batch of new records and movies

My wallet is begging me to stop, but I can't.


Yo! It’s been a while since I showed off some of the new records and movies I’ve been picking up. I recently got a huge new TV for my living room, so I’ve ramped up my movie purchases. There have been some awesome vinyl re-releases and sales as of late, so I’ve got a lot of those too. All of this stuff was acquired over the past few months.

New records: 

  • good kid, m.A.A.d city by Kendrick Lamar (10th-anniversary)
  • Midnights by Taylor Swift
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 soundtrack
  • Happier Than Ever by Billie Eilish
  • Dangerous Woman by Ariana Grande

Some strong mixed vibes here. I love my moody pop, so of course I had to snag Midnights and Happier Than Ever. I’ve actually only heard one song from the Billie Eilish album, but I thought it would be cool to pick up the record for my first full listening. Dangerous Woman is one of Ariana’s best albums, and I’ve been waiting for a special edition re-release to add it to my collection. good kid m.A.A.d city is one of the best hip hop albums ever in my opinion, and I had it on constant rotation back in high school, so I jumped at the limited edition anniversary release.

New movies:

  • Last Night in Soho (2021)
  • Rear Window (1954)
  • The Batman (2022)
  • Everything Everywhere All at Once (2022)
  • Interstellar (2014)
  • La La Land (2016)
  • Scream 2 (1997)

Last Night in Soho was one of the best movies of last year, and I can’t wait to see all that gorgeous color in 4K. I’ve never seen Rear Window, so I grabbed it on sale for $10 bucks. The Batman is an instant classic, so I had to secure a copy. Everything Everywhere All at Once is still the best movie of this year. Interstellar is another one that I just want to have in stunning quality. La La Land is one of my favorite musicals, it makes me so happy every time I watch it. I popped that one in as soon as I got home with it. Scream 2 got a 25th-anniversary special edition steelbook, which I pre-ordered the second it was announced.

With Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals on the horizon, my wallet could very well be in further turmoil.

      Please report back about Rear Window please! It is great! Also, you seem to like women singers, so https://www.youtube.com/@AnnaGraceMusic/videos

      They all start sweet and simple but then she goes nutso in the 2nd half.

      Scroll to Autumn Days, she witnessed somebody being shot and killed in a Nashville restaurant and wrote about it. Then listen to all of the rest of them. Sunshine in a Bottle should be a TV show theme song and Evergreen is amazing, I just got chills thinking about it

      I didn't post a Cortex review of Halloween Ends, because I thought maybe you would, and plus also I hated it

      I loved SMILE and Black Phone and liked Barbarian

        Thanks for the recs! I didn't post a review for Halloween Ends because I also hated it, and didn't want to dedicate any of my time talking about it haha. Just saw Smile myself and it's dope. Barbarian rocks too.

      I’ve got an original copy of GKMC and it sounds really amazing, like all of Kendrick’s albums. Hopefully this one sounds good!
