A Series of Unfortunate Events (Netflix)
The third season of the Netflix Original is coming this January. The show is regarded as one of the best ones Netflix has ever produced and has also earned a lot of critical acclaims.
A Series of Unfortunate Events revolves around three orphans Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire, who have an evil guardian, whose eyes are set on their wealth. The show is an adaptation of best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket.
Eighth Grade (Prime Video)
This 2018 American teen comedy has earned a lot of critical acclaims for handling the sensitive issue of social awkwardness and anxiety among school students. The movie follows the story of a teenage girl who is unsocial and is going through a rough time in the final weeks of her eighth grade.
The girl suffers from different issues, but records vlogs to help people and make the right decisions for them. It is a powerful film with a powerful plot. I guess most of the school students and also the ones who are not pass outs will be able to relate to this.
The Punisher (Netflix)
Marvel’s The Punisher will be making a comeback for the second season sometime in January. The exact date is not known but it will be released in the January month.
Many of the Marvel series are bidding Adieu and this might be last time you would see Frank Castle taking on the bad guys. So go ahead and watch the season one, if you have not watched it already and be ready for this one.
The Dark Knight (Netflix)
Ahh, Christian Bale as Batman and Heath Ledger as the Joker. I don’t think there are many movies better than the second installment of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy. After the events of Batman Begins, the Caped Crusader is faced with a maniac, whose only mission is to get the identity of Batman revealed.
It is the only superhero movie where an actor won the Academy Award in the Best Supporting Actor category and you already know who he is. Yes, the late legendary Heath Ledger for his portrayal of Joker.
Beautiful Boy (Prime Video)
Starring Steve Carell as David Sheff and Timothée Chalamet as Nic Sheff, the Beautiful Boy revolves around a young boy, Nic, who is excellent at school, has the perfect life with great parents, but somehow he gets addicted to meth and that’s when things start to fall apart.
Though, the boy is gifted with a fabulous father who helps him get over the addiction. It is another powerful movie with a message to parents and children. You must watch this if you are a kid or a parent.
American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace (Netflix)
Based on Maureen Orth’s book Vulgar Favors: Andrew Cunanan, Gianni Versace, and the Largest Failed Manhunt in U.S. History, the show deals with the assassination of the biggest and world famous, Italian fashion designer, Gianni Versace.
This is the second season of the American Crime Stories and it first aired on Fox Extended television network. The show stars Édgar Ramírez as Gianni Versace, Ricky Martin as Antonio D’Amico, and Penélope Cruz as Donatella Versace.
Sherlock Gnomes (Prime Video)
The sequel to 2011’s Gnomeo and Juliet sees the entry of great detective Sherlock Gnome to solve a strange case. Both Gnomeo and Juliet reach out to the best detective in the world to figure out the mystery behind the disappearing Gnomes from the garden.
