never let me go by kazuo ishiguro (2005)

Never Let Me Go is incisive and fascinating in its description of boarding school and childhood, but is meanwhile set in a sad, disturbing, difficult situation which, altho fantastical, feels extremely true to home - so unless all that sad and disturbing stuff sounds special to you (and it is special, don’t get me wrong, but it’s not necessarily special in an enjoyable way), I have trouble recommending it.

moonfall (2022)

if you need a really sloppy mass market sci-fi action thriller this one’s got it all - hilariously inconsistent science and worldbuilding, stilted dialog, obvious and boring plot, and a whole ton of flashy fun cgi.
