Official summary: BuzzFeed Unsolved follows Ryan Bergara and co-host Shane Madej, who discuss unsolved crimes, haunted places, demonic possessions, and historical occurrences that defy explanation, presenting them and the theories that surround them in a dark, yet comedic manner.
ALNM rec: I've developed more of an affection for podcasts and online series lately, and this is one of my favorites. The cases, both true crime and supernatural themed, are truly interesting and the banter between Ryan and Shane often leave me wheezing. Episodes are typically under half an hour long, making them perfect for your lunch break or while you're getting ready in the morning. But I wouldn't recommend watching too many later at night.

ALNM Rating: 4/5
Directed by: Marc Forster
Starring: Ewan McGregor, Hayley Atwell, Jim Cummings, Brad Garrett
Available to watch: In theaters now
Review: I have to admit, I wasn't super excited when this movie was first announced. But then I saw the first teaser trailer with Jim Cummings voicing Winnie the Pooh and was immediately sold. The storyline isn't particularly unique and the message of placing family above work isn't groundbreaking, but it is a movie with heart. I would even argue that this is a children's film targeted towards adults who, in our complicated times, could use a good cuddle with everyone's favorite teddy bear. Ewan McGregor gives a lovely performance of a grown Christopher Robin, but it really is Winnie the Pooh himself who steals the show. I loved the old school stuffed animal visuals of the movie, which reminded me of the old Winnie the Pooh stuffed animal my mother has. If you are looking for a fun lighthearted movie that makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside, this is it.

Official summary: Created by Bryan Fuller and Alex Kurtzman for CBS All Access, the story of "Star Trek: Discovery" begins roughly a decade before Captain Kirk's five-year mission -- as portrayed in the original "Star Trek" from the 1960s -- and a century before the events of "Star Trek: Enterprise." The series follows the crew of the USS Discovery as they encounter new worlds and civilizations, delving into familiar themes and expanding upon an incident that has been talked about within the franchise's universe, but never fully explored.
ALNM rec: I have always loved Star Trek. I grew up watching Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Voyager every week and recording the newest episodes on VHS when I couldn't stay up that late. This latest Star Trek is an excellent addition to the franchise. Discovery exists in the "prime" universe. Basically, go into watching this imagining the JJ Abrams movies have never happened. In terms of timeline, this series is almost a century after Enterprise and a decade before the original series. But this show also breaks ground with the first non-captain lead, first gay characters, and even the first f-bomb in the franchise. It remains true to the franchise in terms of its willingness to explore complex problems with a sci-fi twists. I thoroughly enjoyed the plot twists in this season, and the final scene of the last episode have me very excited for the coming season.
