My October 2016 Favorites

 Like all months that last 31 days, October seemed to last forever. But here are my favorites for the month.
Favorite Film: Quiz Show
Quiz Show is a movie based on the Twenty-One scandal back in the 1950's.  What happens with a game-show uses deception to create faux-heroes? Quite the entertaining story to be honest. Who knew Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) was so smart? 

Favorite Video Game: Yoshi's Woolly World 
The latest sequel to the original Yoshi's Island on Super Nintendo, Yoshi's Woolly World may have its issues but its one of the best games on the WiiU. While it doesn't quite hold a candle to its original predecessor it's leagues above Yoshi's Story or Yoshi's New Island. For those who are never going to get a WiiU, I hear there is a version planned for the Nintendo 3DS. 

Favorite TV Show: Stranger Things 
Even though it's not a terribly long TV season, I thought it'd be at least until early November until I finished Stranger Things. It only took me two days, mainly because it was hard to not watch it. It combines the best of horror, mystery, and nostalgia. One of the best new shows of the whole year.

I could not get into Stranger Things! Maybe I'll try again.

I've never heard of any of these....but then, considering my age, this isn't strange.
