Happy Thanksgiving! I like to think this is just practice for many more holiday parties and family dinners around the corner, so if Turkey Day is overwhelming and you need some time to relax to take, there are plenty of options to do that too. Sure, there’s the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and A strange world to watch with the whole family (you could also throw it on Home alone 2, which turns 30 this week, if getting in the Christmas spirit is your thing). Or you and the cousins ​​can head out to check out Timothée Chalamet’s new cannibal romance. Plus, we’ll be spinning in a couple of Thanksgiving-inspired movies, making sure there’s plenty of entertainment to choose from before and after you are filled on Thursday.

It seems Afternoon with cannibals. Okay, maybe it is a little stretchbut Timotheé Chalamet and Taylor Russell play two cannibal strangers, Lee and Maren, who find each other and escape on a road trip, crossing other cannibals. Bones and all doing more horror than the director Luca Guadagnino Call me with your Namebut it’s still a gorgeous romance all the same.

Steven Spielberg’s new movie to hear this holiday season is great. Instead of directing a musical, however, Spielberg has joined the auteur-director trend of turning your life story into a semi-autobiographical coming-of-age film with The Fabelmans. Michelle Williams and Paul Dano star as the young parents of filmmaker Sammy (Gabriel LaBelle).

The release for Disney Animation’s latest film seems to have been quieter than the usual princess fare, but A strange world of course in theaters, everyone! Inspired by recent pulpy adventure stories, A strange world centers around the Clade family, a famous line of explorers in the city of Avalonia. Although Jaeger Clade (Dennis Quaid) goes missing, his son, Searcher (Jake Gyllenhaal), is left behind and finds a life-saving plant. It’s only when that plant is in danger that Searcher goes out to investigate what’s wrong with his wife, Meridian (Gabrielle Union), and son Ethan (Jaboukie Young-White). It’s a nice little movie to entertain your kids with this weekend, and it’s a Disney movie that finally has more than just a “totally gay moment,” so that’s good.

Rian Johnson has a new movie starting. Two years (and a new distributor) later, the sequel to Johnson’s mouthwatering hit is finally hitting theaters—though unfortunately only for a week. Glass onion brings detective Benoit Blanc to Greece to participate (then investigate) in a murder mystery party gone wrong, and with another deliciously stacked team, the sequel is earning raves even better than the original one. But Knives out yes yet killer and has actually become a Thanksgiving movie in my family. There’s an earthquake, cable knit sweaters, family gatherings going fast? Yup, it’s like the holidays.

If you prefer a slower-paced, mind-bending Thanksgiving movie, The People Is it. Centered around a family holiday dinner, playwright Stephen Karam made his directorial debut with this A24 adaptation of his play. The film dwells with the Blake family as their tensions, woes, relationships and concerns melt into an emotional piece of disturbing wit. It might not be exactly the family-friendly movie recommendation some of you are looking for, but for others, it’s perfect.

Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig may have their next collaboration, White Noise, come out quickly, but America’s Mistress it was the last time actor-writer (and director) Gerwig worked with her now-husband Baumbach. Frances Ha certainly, and deservedly, gets most of the praise, but Gerwig shines as the fun and somewhat chaotic stepsister of Tracy (Lola Kirke), a lonely college freshman in New York. Now, why am I asking you to watch this on Thanksgiving weekend? Well, its limit is set during the holidays, even with the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! Plus, why wouldn’t you want to see Gerwig hilariously break every line in this movie?

City boy and country girl – you might get the gist of the movie just through that dynamic, but Son of Law It’s a chaotic little comedy and stars Pauly Shore and Carla Gugino as the aforementioned boy and girl, Crawl and Rebecca. The two play close college friends, and when Thanksgiving rolls around, Rebecca takes Crawl to visit her family in South Dakota. It’s a very fish out of water situation, to say the least.

When it comes to Thanksgiving, I’m not quite a cook, but I am am the one who woke my sisters up to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade at the end of the day. Watching the parade is a tradition, because where else can you see giant SpongeBob and Grogu balloons floating in the air and The Broadway numbers and celebrities lip-syncing to pop hits from the comfort of your sofa? It’s fun! And for cord cutters, this year you can even stream the parade on Peacock.

Yes, I am submitting Andor again, and what about it? Andor yes really that girl (girl, in this case, to be the best Star wars series). And if you’ve been busy shooting the Tony Gilroy show, now is the perfect time, because not only is it the long holiday weekend, the t – series airing its first season finale today. Disney is even showing the first two episodes of Andor across Hulu, ABC, Freeform, and FX, so there’s really no excuse for missing Diego Luna’s incredible lead performance.

The show I got through high school is back, baby. Spencer Reid may not be coming back (booo!), but some other fan favorites – most of last season’s cast – are back, from Emily Prentiss (Paget Brewster) to David Rossi (Joe Mantegna). The gang together again might not be as good as the original series in 2005, but we love a crime series, don’t we?

The torch is being passed from Christina Ricci to Jenna Ortega, and Wednesday Ortega (Latina!) is really kooky, spooky, and cool as hell. The new series, directed by Tim Burton, Alfred Gough, and Miles Millar, follows our eponymous heroine as she transfers to Evermore Academy and finds herself at the center of a dark secret. And while Wednesday is more YA than the beloved one The Addams Family movies have always been, I’m such a sucker for this show. She looks like goth Nancy Drew! How can I no so?

No, Kumail Nanjiani does not play a prostitute. Instead he stars as Somen “Steve” Banerjee, the mogul behind Chippendales, the male strip empire. Based on a true story, Welcome to Chippendales tells the story of Banerjee’s life, perhaps set to a flood of 80s hits just so you know you in the 80s. Murray Bartlett, Annaleigh Ashford, Juliette Lewis, Andrew Rannells, Dan Stevens, and more complete the cast.
