While August flew by rather quickly I did manage to watch some decent movies, and played a really awesome video game.
Favorite Movie: Silver Linings Playbook
I originally had heard about Silver Linings due to it's Oscar nominations and the Oscar win for Jennifer Lawrence. It's a wonderful comedy/drama about a man recovering from a mental breakdown who heals by countering his personality with someone almost as crazy.
Favorite Video Game: Animal Crossing: New Leaf
I was one of the biggest fans of the original Animal Crossing on Gamecube, and now over a decade later I'm still impressed by the latest sequel New Leaf. Not only does it let you become Mayor of your town, but so many additions and improvements make it still one of Nintendo's best series.
