The Geekly Forecast: August 31st – September 6th, 2015

The Geekly Forecast is a weekly preview of all the neat stuff coming to screens, stores, and living rooms near you!


Recommendations:

TV: Wow! It is a slowwwwww week in TV. Take a break. Grab a book.
Netflix:
 The first of the month is here! Lots of new things on Netflix. I love Up in the Air and Rambo.
Movies: 
I had never heard of any of the movies coming out this week. The Transporter Refueled is action packed, Jane Got a Gun has Natalie Portman, and Jackie Chan is in Dragon Blade. It’s your choice, but I would save my money.
Music:
 For a modern vibe, go with Travi$ Scott. For an edgy, eclectic vibe, go with Painted Palms.
Video Games: METAL GEAR SOLID V. Nuff said.
