The Block: Aussie reality TV show on renovations. Pairs work to renovate a building and at the end of the season, they each sell their property. The pair that makes the most profit at the end wins an extra $100,000 (but those that don’t still get to keep their own profit so it’s pretty much a win-win unless you splurged on useless shit throughout the whole process). This show was surprisingly exciting for me - believe it or not, if I wasn’t obsessed with TV I would probably take up interior design. Since watching it, I’ve found myself looking at my room and picturing the million different ways I could rearrange it. A friend of mine actually recommended Oneflare to speak to a couple professionals to cost it out so I might give that a go if I don’t spend ALL my time watching things…

Maniac: Shot solely from the POV of the main character, Maniac thrives in creating a crazy amount of discomfort. Elijah Wood, even though he’s seen only through reflections and in the moments he kills, is insanely creepy. He really taps into something dark. Props to director Franck Khalfoun, too, for somehow making a first-person serial killer film work. And the gore. So gratuitous.
Oblivion: I really liked it and, yeah, I shed a tear at the end I DON’T EVEN CARE. It’s nothing original by any means, but Tom Cruise was great as was the rest of the cast. It was appealing to my eyes and my ears (thanks, M83).
