What better way to start 2019 than with a movie night? Amazon is getting Eighth Grade, Bo Burnham’s directorial debut about a slightly awkward teenage girl’s last week of middle school. The movie was one of my favorite 2018 releases and it had me reliving my own middle school trauma right there in the movie theater.
If the holidays didn’t scare you off from sweets entirely, Amazon is also picking up Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory on Jan. 1. Or if you’d like something edgier, there’s also Terry Gilliam’s Brazil.
