If you bombed a midterm, look no further than this list for a way to cry it all out.


“ATTACK ON TITAN” (Crunchyroll)

Set in a world where mankind was almost entirely wiped out by ginormous, man-eating monsters, “Attack on Titan” is a dark, gorey story to follow for the ten years it has been airing. It follows Eren Yeager, a boy who lives inside the massive concrete walls humanity constructed in order to keep Titans from slaughtering the rest of humanity. After suffering a tragic loss because of the titan, Eren decides to join the Survey Corps, a military unit dedicated to slaying Titans, and bloody, beautifully animated action pursues.

“Attack on Titan” recently released the final season part three special one. The episode is an hour long and still doesn’t manage to wrap up the final chapters of the manga. Regardless, the special will provide fans of the series new content before MAPPA releases the next special in Fall 2023.


“MAURICE” (Prime Video)

“Coming out” in 1987, “Maurice” is a British drama based on the novel of the same name by E.M. Forster. It centers around the romantic relationship between two men in the early 1900s. The movie starts out with a relationship between Maurice and Clive, a wealthy colleague of his. They eventually break it off in order to preserve Clive’s reputation and he marries a woman. Years later, Maurice visits Clive and starts to develop feelings towards his servant Alec.

This movie sounds like it will leave me in shambles, which is a good way to decompress after a week of midterms.



A movie that has been on my watchlist for a long time, “Everything Everywhere All at Once” fits into a category of its own when it comes to genre. Evelyn Wang, a Chinese American woman, has to journey into parallel universes to prevent the destruction of the multiverse. The chaos and absurdities are expected in a film spanning dimensions, but it also has a drama aspect that left audiences in tears.

The Oscars are coming up on March 12, and “Everything Everywhere All at Once” has been nominated for 11 awards. I’m hoping it walks away with at least the Oscar for Best Music (Original Song) because I am a big fan of Mitski, who is featured on the song “This Is A Life.”
