Our Picks:

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Han Solo’s origin story didn’t exactly smash the box office, but this serviceable action film is better than you’ve been led to believe. Anchored by fun performances by Alden Ehrenreich and Emilia Clarke, the movie is an easy watch, even if it’s not the masterpiece Star Wars fans were hoping for.

Our Picks:

Lodge 49

Lodge 49 defies explanation. The show follows a surfer who finds his purpose in a fraternal brotherhood — but it’s way weirder than that description suggests.

Good Trouble

The Fosters is getting the spin-off it deserves as Callie and Mariana move to Los Angeles to start their careers and deal with young adulthood.

Our Picks:

Down a Dark Hall

A group of troubled young girls find themselves in over their heads when they’re sent to a creepy boarding school.

Ocean’s 8

The Sandra Bullock-led all women spin-off of the Ocean’s franchise is a thrilling treat well worth revisiting.

Don’t let the winter blues get you down — there are way too many awesome movies and shows to watch for that.
