Summertime is my jam.
I know, summertime is everyone’s jam. But like, I realllllly love summer.
That being said, the weather so far has been royally f$cking my favorite season in the bungus (this EFFing gorgeous Friday excluded, note the 23-yr old jubroni lunchtime power hour happening on my roof at 12:23 on a Friday afternoon)
Otherwise, if you find yourself indoors in front of the boob tube, at home or in Montauk/with or without jubronis, here’s a few suggests (movies and series) for what to fire up on Apple TV. In 5 buzzwords or less, ain’t nobody got time for me Siskel & Ebert’ing up in here.
Available on Netflix
Snowpiercer: apocalypse | train | castes | weirdos | schoolchildren
OldBoy (original South Korean, not the unnecessary Spike Jones remake): imprisonment | mystery | lo mein | hot Asian | ew
The Layover: Anthony Bourdain | Singapore | Montreal | Hong Kong | alcoholism
Chef’s Table: documentary | food porn | Vivaldi | cinematography | highbrow
Cool World: I’m breaking the 5 word rule for this one. When I was a kid our local video store (miss you Hastings Video!!) always had one of those cardboard cutouts for this movie and it was colorful and catchy and featured cartoon hookers in slutty get-ups. Naturally the sisters Feinberg begged to rent it and our parents always said HELL NO. It’s probably terrible but I’m pretty excited it’s on Netflix and I will finally, finally be able to watch it. Stars Kim Basinger as the titular toon ho, and young Brad Pitt on the sidelines.
