2018 in lists: concerts & shows, theatre, books, movies, TV

(Obviously, a work in progress…)

Concerts, Shows, Theatre & Words

  • Muriel’s Wedding, the Musical: Loved the adaptation and update, music and cast. A fun show. I wonder if it will transfer overseas.

Exhibitions

  • What will be the first exhibition of 2018?

Books

  • Elena Ferrante’s My Brilliant Friend (fiction): reading it now.

Movies

  • Moana. I watched this hungover from New Year’s Eve and thought it was great.
  • Call me by your name: Romantic, languid and slow. Of course I loved it.
  • Star Wars: The Last Jedi: Entertaining, engaging with characters I was rooting for, and amusing space creatures.
  • The Shape of Water: What an odd film, but quite magical.
  • Lady Bird: I don’t think I liked it quite as much as the critics… and even though the film was playing with cliché and trope, some felt too familiar, but the central performance is compelling.

Television

  • Stranger Things, Season 2. Pretty fun to watch, and some interesting developments from the first season though I’m not sure it always make sense…
  • Project Runway All Stars, 2018
  • The Crown, Season 2
