[Watch] 8-bit Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

This wouldn’t make for a good game but the 8-bit music is spot on. Ferris Bueller is easily in my top list of favorite films. The sweet spot of 80’s cinematic awesomeness. One of those flicks that I can’t wait to watch with my nephew, and explain why people are…
