Bliss + You Me Her Season 5

In Amazon Prime Video's Bliss, Greg gets told that the world is a simulation.

It was an interesting mind-fuck movie, but I expected more from it.

It stars Owen Wilson, Salma Hayek and Nesta Cooper. Bill Nye has a small role in it.

----------

The final season of You Me Her, the f/f/m romcom, was... really not good. I don't know what happened. The writers should have stopped at the end of S4, which was a strong season.

The entire series is now available on Netflix France.

Daughter of the Moon by Effie Calvin

Daughter of the Moon by Effie Calvin was excellent, as always. It's the fifth book in the Tales of Inthya series.

I love this f/f fantasy/romance series so much. <3 It has great plots, awesome characters and a fascinating mythology with Goddesses sometimes involved in the story.

This tome has a trans female main character, and the general worldbuilding has a non-binary gender called neutroi, with they/them pronouns.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 7 + Flicker by Elizabeth Tybush

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 7 is finally on Netflix France! \o/ It was amazing, as usual. I'm not big on sitcoms, but this one is flawless.

My favourite episode this season was the Pimento one, though the finale was excellent too.

----------

In Flicker by Elizabeth Tybush, the Drakon Prince Solin seeks redemption in a soup kitchen after the crime he committed five years ago.

The beginning of the novel was confusing. It felt like a sequel, but it wasn't. Apart from that, there were some good ideas.

Solin is bisexual. There's a little m/m and a little m/f.

Wild Life by Keena Roberts

Wild Life: Dispatches from a Childhood of Baboons and Button-Downs by Keena Roberts was amazing. The daughter of two primatologists, Keena grows up between Africa (Kenya, then Botswana) and the US.

I usually only read fiction, but this autobiography (with a few photos) almost sounds like a novel. Keena spends a good part of her childhood near dangerous animals and survives to tell the tale.

Even though she was born in the US, she faces culture shock every time her family goes back there. Life at school is not easy and she gets bullied (I'm not putting a formal content warning, because she doesn't focus on it, but just know it's there).

The book has no romance, but Keena is into girls. I can't wait to read more from her.

Animals on the Loose + Brothersong by TJ Klune

Animals on the Loose: A You vs Wild Movie was a lot of fun. ^__^ It's a Netflix interactive film, based on the You vs Wild series, which I haven't seen. But it's a whole new adventure, so that's not an issue.

I succeeded in 2 out of 4 missions (it says 3 at the beginning, but there's a bonus one at the end). The whole story took me 45 minutes, so that's reasonable.

I'll probably try again later on and maybe I'll even check out the series.

----------

Brothersong by TJ Klune (The House in the Cerulean Sea, The Extraordinaries) was awesome. It's the fourth and final book in the Green Creek series (werewolf m/m) and deals with Carter's story.

I hope you like feels, because you're going to get a lot of them! ♥

This tome has a minor aromantic (possibly aroace) character. And of course Kelly's asexual.

Palm Springs

Palm Springs was a very fun time loop movie.

Andy Samberg (Jake in B99) plays the lead, who's bisexual. \o/ Tyler Hoechlin (Derek in Teen Wolf) also has a small role.

The movie is available on Hulu in the US and on Amazon Prime Video in France and probably in other countries.

Plain Bad Heroines by Emily Danforth

In Plain Bad Heroines by Emily Danforth, two queer girls studying at a cursed school die of a wasp attack. A century later, Merritt writes a novel about it and Harper and Audrey play the leads in the movie adaptation.

Content warnings: [Spoilers]way too many wasps, way too many Bury Your Gays! Sure, you're writing a creepy book with a lot of LGBT representation, so there's going to be some Bury Your Gays. You even put two right there in the summary. But maybe you could pace yourself because there are more to come after that...

The book is 600 pages long, and yet it feels like a lot is missing. Collapse )

Still, the book has some cool gimmicks:
- illustrations
- footnotes
- 4th wall-breaking narration

Space Sweepers + The Yin-Yang Master: Dream of Eternity

Space Sweepers was so much fun! :D The crew of a space junk collector ship must save Earth from a bomb.

It's a Netflix Korean movie. All the main characters are Korean, but space is international, so some lines are in English, French, Spanish, etc. It's really nice.

It has a super cool robot, who narrates this featurette, and I'm in love with the lady captain. <3

This is one of the best space movies out there. Go for it! I'll probably do a rewatch soon.

----------

The Yin-Yang Master: Dream of Eternity was fascinating. Four Yin-Yang Masters must stop a serpent demon from escaping its seal.

It's a Chinese movie (based on a Japanese novel) distributed by Netflix. Fantasy films are rare and I enjoyed this one, despite a slow start. It was very pretty to look at, especially the martial arts and the magic.

Chinese productions sadly can't have LGBT representation, but damn, they're really good at m/m subtext! ♥_♥ I found one (spoilery) fanvid, but I hope there'll be more.

I might rewatch this one too. tinnny, have you seen it?
