November books and movies

So you can all know what a crazy person I am:

November 1: The Lighthouse. Yeah. Huh.
November 2: Satanic Panic, the Claymation Comedy of Horrors
November 3: The original Godzilla, from the new Criterion Collection set. Also, finished Post Oaks and Sand Roughs, Robert E. Howard's autobiographical first novel.
November 4: Home with a bad cold, so: Sh the Octopus, The Mystery of the Wax Museum, part of House of the Gorgon, then the Rifftrax version of Atlantic Rim. Whew! Finished The Works of Gwerful Mechain, a medieval Welsh poet, for the Classics Club.
November 5: Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween. Fun and harmless Halloween cool-down fun.
November 9: Saw Madama Butterfly at the simulcast "Live from the Met."
November 10: Binged the new Hulu season of Veronica Mars in the afternoon, then the recent season of The Good Place in the evening.
November 11: Ghost of New Orleans. No surprise: it was not good. Then, much better: Godzilla Raids Again. Plus some of the new Lost in Space.
November 12: The launch of Disney +, or as I call it, "the Star Wars streaming service." Episode one of The Mandalorian!
November 13: Booksmart came in on hold. I think I had higher hopes, but it was a perfectly serviceable teenage comedy.
November 14: Finally, the first few episodes of Star Wars:  Resistance.
November 15: Episode 2 of The Mandalorian. Making a good dent in Dickens' Hard Times.
November 16: Jojo Rabbit at the theater. Started Resistance Reborn, by Rebecca Roanhorse.
November 17: In the Star Wars-y mood, re-watched Solo. So good!
November 18: Finally started Bojack Horseman.
November 19: Book Club: Space Between, by Nico Torterella.
November 20: Watched the Bela Lugosi movie Night Monster.
November 21: Sick: vertigo. Yay! Finished Hard Times, started The Two Emilys, by Sophia Lee. 
November 22: Still sickish, hoping the meds work. Watched King Kong Vs. Godzilla, also this week's Mandalorian, and a few more episodes of Resistance.
