The Geekly Forecast: October 12th – October 18th, 2015

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


Recommendations:

TV: Did you SEE The Walking Dead Season 6 premiere??? This week is a must-see episode after a thrilling ending to last week’s episode.
Netflix:
 Idris Elba will play an African rebel leader in the Netflix original movie Beasts of No Nation. He’s so good that you might hate him by the end of it, but it’s a must see.
Movies: 
If you’re looking to get spooked, Crimson Peak is the way to go. Otherwise, the Tom Hanks-led Bridge of Spies looks promising. Overall, not a blockbuster weekend, though.
Music: Music is kinda sucky this week. You could pick up Game’s The Documentary 2, which snuck in stores last week… Or! Who doesn’t love Demi Lovato?
