Poe’s Recommended Books & Movies

Just as Mato started to get over his cold/flu, I developed a sore throat & cough! Nobody wants to listen to a pair of coughing sickies play video games, so Poemato CX will be on hold for a little longer than anticipated. Since we haven’t been streaming, we’ve been watching movies on Netflix instead. I’ve also been reading lots of books. Here are some books & movies I’ve read & watched in 2015 that I’d like to recommend:


  • 2001: A Space Odyssey – I’ve read all four books in the Space Odyssey series, but the first one is my favorite. It’s slightly different from the excellent movie, but in the best ways possible.
  • Angry Housewives Eating Bon-Bons – I’m not just into sci-fi, lol. This book follows the lives of five ladies over the course of about 30 years who start a book club together. A entertaining read.
  • The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up – I’m also super into self-help books. This one teaches you a new method for clearing the clutter out of your life for good. It encourages you to keep only the things that “spark joy”.


  • God of Cookery – A very silly kung fu movie about cooking. It’s by the same people who did Kung Fu Hustle and Shaolin Soccer.
  • The Brass Teapot – A weird and entertaining independent movie about a couple who finds a teapot that spits out money whenever they injure themselves.
  • Time Lapse – A time-travel movie about a group of twenty-somethings who find a machine that takes pictures 24 hours into the future. They exploit it for personal gain & there are consequences.

I could go on and on, but that short list should be enough to keep you guys entertained for a bit! Also, Grandma’s Boy recently became available to watch on Netflix Instant streaming. That’s Poemato’s #1 favorite movie of all time, and we both highly recommend it.
