Pretty much what the title says! During our latest YouTube livestream Craig, Kenn, and Megan sat down and spun the Wheel of Tangents. Megan updates the group on her progress in The Wheel of Time; Craig gives his first impressions of both N.K. Jemisin and Joe Abercrombie; and Kenn holds forth on The Mandalorian. They talked about a wide variety of subjects, obviously, but the real takeaway here, as you’ll see, is that Kenn and Megan don’t see nearly enough movies.

    I loved N.K. Jemisin’s The Broken Kingdoms (The Inheritance Trilogy II) but despised The Fifth Season (The Broken Earth I).

    That it demands our sympathy for a mass murderer is only one reason. (I refused to read the rest of the trilogy.)

    I like to say that either Jemisin is the greatest science fiction and fantasy writer of all time, or her Hugo Awards involve factors other than literary quality.

    Sam is the only ringbearer who surrenders the ring without regret.

    Sam is the only ringbearer who surrenders the ring without regret.

    Sam is Tolkien’s tip of the hat to the steadfast enlisted men he knew as a young officer in the trenches.

    By the way, I take it you’ve all seen Peter Jackson’s They Shall Not Grow Old, perhaps the greatest achievement in documentary film of the century? I just saw it the second time. (In 3D, of course.)
