My November 2017 Favorites

 November seemed like it lasted quite a long time. Here are my favorite things in entertainment.
Favorite Film: Pan's Labyrinth 
Some months I watch a lot of movies that are rather meh, but this month I watched a lot of pretty good ones. Between Pan's Labyrinth, Lion, The Way Back, Trolls, and Hell or High Water, it was difficult to settle on one. The film is about a young girl in the early days of fascist Spain who finds a world of dark magic on the other side. To my friends who hate to read, it is spoken only in Spanish so I hope you're fluent in Espanol if you don't like subtitles. 

Favorite Video Game: Super Mario Odyssey  
Super Mario Odyssey is the newest Mario game, and while I prefer Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy to it, I still thought it was a pretty darn good game. The new magic hat Cappy's powers are pretty neat, and some of the worlds and bosses you face are pretty memorable. However for Game of the Year (unless something in December changes my mind), I thought The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild outclassed it.  

Favorite TV Show: Reign
My wife and I didn't have too much time for TV shows lately. We're still going through the second season of CW's Reign which is about the first marriage of Mary, Queen of Scots to Francis II of France. We're getting close to the end of the season but not quite there yet. One thing that bugs me about CW seasons is they're often too long and the middle is a bit dull. While I still like the show quite a bit, I'm really excited about getting a chance to start Stranger Things's newest season once we are done.
