Anya final stand, S7

Media Consumed

Pulp Fiction (1994). NGL, 80% of the reason I finally watched this was because I was trying to decide whether or not to splurge for this Captain Marvel t-shirt. Anyway, I... don't regret seeing it? The ratio of Travolta to Samuel L. Jackson was a lot higher than I expected or wanted, but we survived. I appreciated how it was in no hurry to get to wherever it was getting to next. I think I liked the bookending SLJ+Travolta story the best. (Tim Roth!) The back half of the Bruce Willis storyline was also A Trip.

Snatch (2000). I was sick and in the mood to watch awful men do awful things in a purportedly entertaining way, I guess, because I watched this next. It was a bad life choice. I did enjoy Brad Pitt a lot in it, and Benicio del Toro for the brief time he was on screen, and I enjoyed how since it was set in London, the acquisition of even a single handgun was a major preoccupation for several different major characters. But overall it was bad.

Gone Home. Three years after I bought this, I finally finished it! I enjoyed the general "spooky house in the 90s" vibe a lot, and the canon f/f romance was very sweet. OTOH the game turned out to have a LOT less to do with conspiracy theories and a weird old uncle than I expected from the first hour or so of gameplay, and I still want to play the game that I thought it was going to be.
