While this pandemic has proved difficult to socialize and spend time with friends, it has not stunted our generation from finding connection through media. With the December break just around the corner, we have all grown tired of binging the same The Office and Friends seasons. Instead, stay in with family and friends, pour some hot chocolate, start a fire, and put on a new movie to stay in the holiday spirit. Here are some of our best recommendations! 

The Haunting of Bly Manor is not your typical scary series, rather it clashes to contrasting genres of romance and horror. Follow the story of an “au pair”, or a nanny in more common terms, who falls into the lives of two peculiar children. Watch The Haunting of Bly Manor for an intricate storytelling of life after death. 

Sugar Rush Christmas is sure to get one in the holiday spirit if one finds themselves blue about the problems of the world. It is the perfect combination of competition, drama, and Christmas spirit that is sure to leave anyone craving for a sweet treat. 

If Anything Happens I Love You is a heart wrenching animated short film that documents the lives of two parents coping with the loss of their child to a school shooting. If you are looking for a film to tug at your heartstrings while being made aware of the very real issue occurring in our country, then this is the film for you. 

The Mandalorian is perfect for those seeking action, adventure, and humor. Follow the journey of a Mandalorian, who was once a bounty hunter, that has dedicated his time to protect the “Baby Yoda.” Season two has recently been released so if you are familiar or interested with the cinematic universe then The Mandalorian is the perfect choice for you. 

Tickets to My Downfall by Machine Gun Kelly has taken to the Billboard with a new pop-punk and hip-hop sound, vastly contrasting his usual rap style. Hits like “bloody valentine” and “my ex’s best friend” will leave you bobbing your head and will not leave you disappointed.
