Nathan Lowell's Golden Age of the Golden Clipper series

This seven book sci-fi spacey redo of the Horatio Hornblower series was reactionary, predictable, silly, and kind of preachy - and yet for some reason I couldn't put it down and finished the whole thing in 2 weeks.

Soul (2020)

there's a lot to unpack here; this struck me as a unique and very psychedelic story, which I appreciated (and of course as a pixar feature it's very entertaining!), but I'm not sure if I trust (trust in a "keep your hands off my brain" kind of sense) the underlying metaphysical assumptions the narrative's plot implied.
