Movie: Hustle

Touted to contain one of the best performances this year by the iconic Hollywood funny guy Adam Sandler, this film is a must for all basketball buffs. Viewers will find themselves following the journey of an NBA talent scout searching for and eventually training a beast of a find (Juancho Hernangómez) for the most notable basketball platform in the world. The film contains a ton of heart, promising viewers a ride that will contain an ebb and flow of emotions, all while also catching some of their favorite basketball stars on-screen. Inspirational, with bouts of comedy, Hustle is undoubtedly, a movie that can’t be missed. 

Song: Glimpse Of Us (Joji)

Joji is an absolute mastermind when it comes to making music that has the power to leave one shattered, yearning after a love one may have never even known. Glimpse Of Us does just that with its heartbreaking lyrics, and Joji's soulful voice crooning the song in a way that tugs at one's heartstrings relentlessly. The song has already become an audience-favorite, and its accompanying video, as jarring as it may be, provokes deep thought and offers an insight into a world with which many of us may be blissfully unaware. If you're ready to have your heart broken by a song, this one will do it for sure.

Show: Love, Death + Robots

If you love all things sci-fi, combined with excellent story-telling, and a production value that will have you do a double take each episode, Love, Death + Robots on Netflix is a no-brainer in terms of choice. Artistically multifaceted, thoroughly impactful, and visually mind-boggling, this series will hook you from the first season, all the way up to its most recent one, allowing you to watch episodes at random, given that the show is not connected in terms of the overall story. Each episode is a stand-alone deep-dive into a world of its own, and the short duration makes this a series that one could devour within a day. The most notable episode has been Jibaro, the last episode of Season 3, with its gripping, abstract tale, and its breathtaking visual appeal.
