My January 2019 Favorites

 Like always, here are my favorite things from movies, tv shows, and video games.
Favorite Film: Aquaman
Aquaman was never the best DC character, and while the DCEU has flopped on big superheroes, they really nailed Aquaman. It's not quite as good as Infinity War or Dark Knight, but it's one of the best superhero films in recent memory. It edged out Antman and the Wasp, which I also saw in January for the first time.   

Favorite TV Show: She-Ra and the Princesses of Power
This Netflix Original is a revival of the old She-Ra cartoon of the 1980's. While I watched He-Man  a little (he is She-Ra's brother), I never watched and knew very little of She-Ra. I originally was going to ignore this one, but buzz was really positive and from the few clips I saw, it did look really promising. And it really did impress me. I do hope they try to revive He-Man and cross the shows over like they did back in the day.  

Favorite Video Game: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Nintendo Switch)
Super Smash Bros. has been one of my favorite series since 1999 and it outclasses every game before it by far. Every character is here, almost every stage is back, and it's hard to put down. Since early December I put in about sixty hours, which is really impressive. The last game I spent so much time with was Breath of the Wild at about 45+ hours.

I would like to see "Aquaman." I have heard it was good from several sources.
