It seems like yesterday that we were celebrating the new year of 2016. Now the first month is almost over. Here are my favorite things from January.
Favorite Film: Gosford Park
I didn't watch any movies that wowed me this month, most of them were good but a bit disappointing. This is partly true for Gosford Park as I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as Downton Abbey which was originally intended to be a spin-off of Gosford Park. Though it's a really neat movie with a great murder mystery.
Favorite Video Game: Fire Emblem Awakening
This was my first game in the Fire Emblem series and I just loved it. I remember liking Advance Wars on Nintendo DS, but I just could relate much better to the days of olden warfare. The turn-based strategy is very fun, but the game can become too difficult for its own good. A new Fire Emblem is suppose to arrive in Feburary but I think I'll wait a bit before I play that one as I don't think I have the time or energy for another epic quest.
Favorite TV Show: Arrow
I watched the second season of Arrow (based on DC comics Green Arrow) this month and thought it was better than the original. I liked the story of Oliver's past on the island, and his new war against his former friend Slade Wilson. The season does have a lot of filler, but I thought the story and characters got more interesting than the original season. Hopefully the third season will impress me even more so than the second.
