Now is the perfect time to get caught up on ‘WandaVision’ on Disney+
If you’ve been wondering if you should start watching the latest offering from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, called “WandaVision” on Disney+, the answer is a resounding YES. AdNow, if you’ve never seen a Marvel movie and want to watch “WandaVision,” the question arises: Will you understand what’s going on? Well, I started watching “WandaVision” without having seen a single Marvel movie, and sure, the first episode was pretty confusing, but it’s for sure doable. You can watch “WandaVision” on Disney+ with new episodes being released on Fridays. And if you want to watch the Marvel movies, most of them are available to stream on Disney+, as well.
‘Barb and Star Go To Vista Del Mar’ is the weirdest and funniest movie you’ll see all year
Mumolo and Wiig star as Barb and Star, respectively, two Midwestern BFFs tired of their boring lives -- and decide to have the vacation of their dreams in Vista Del Mar, Florida. Barb and Star meet a devilishly handsome man (played by the film’s breakout star, Jamie Dornan) who is there to help his boss kill everyone in Vista Del Mar, and of course, Barb and Star unknowingly get caught up in his plan, and must end up saving the day. There’s no other way to put it, but “Barb and Star” is a silly and dumb movie in the best way possible. Nothing makes sense, but in the world that Wiig and Mumolo have built for Barb and Star, it just works. What really makes “Barb and Star” soar is Barb and Star themselves.

All the music we loved listening to in 2020
This year has been different in a lot of ways, but experiencing and consuming music in 2020 has been absolutely abnormal. The band’s third album came out this summer, and it tackles a complex variety of issues: depression, love and misogyny they faced in the music industry. Lady Gaga: ChromaticaWe couldn’t go through this year of music and not mention the current queen of pop: Lady Gaga. After all, 2019 was a pretty big year for Gaga (she won an Oscar, after all), but that wasn’t stopping her from making 2020 her year. While it probably didn’t go as planned, her latest album, “Chromatica,” brought Gaga back to form, making undeniable and danceable pop music.
