    As sad as expected, but offered insights on one of my favorite players. It also featured the only edit of Super Bowl XLII that ever made me feel bad for the Patriots.

    What it didn’t need was Costas’s pontificating in the final minutes. Anyone could have delivered the statistics he did about what impact, or lack thereof, new rules have had.

    Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle

    ★★★½

    Truly a film of two halves. In the first it’s a rehashing much of what we basically know already, and saw very recently with much better CGI. 

    In the second half this film finds its footing and has something to say. It actually brings Mowgli out into the village, which is actually incorporates Indian culture. It comments on human society and Mowgli’s ostracism. This portion of the film is packed with more action and conflict, making Rohan Chand’s breakout performance that much more impressive.

    Simply structered but eerily effective.

    Gender Revolution: A Journey with Katie Couric

    ★★★½

    It's a sprawling topic, which makes it hard to hold together. However, it was informative, and clarified some things I wondered about. It can communicate with the uninitiated, and as per usual makes a mockery of prejudice through science. However, some of the sociological insights, especially from other cultures, are what is most telling. Some of the subjects' stories are quite moving and communicate volumes.
