With the holiday season a memory and the hope of a new and more productive 2021, make it a point to sit down with your newly gifted blanket, a hot cup of your favorite beverage and find a television series or a few movies to binge watch during the month of January.
Once again, new releases are slim, but there are several noteworthy entries being added to our television and documentary collections. Try the reboot of The Twilight Zone, where Season 2 releases this month. You’ll find many familiar faces in these episodes, such as Jenna Elfman, Joel McHale and Chris Meloni, to name a few. You can also find the original series on our shelves – in black and white, of course – hosted by Rod Serling himself.
Glenda Jackson and Maggie Steed are featured in the PBS adaptation of Elizabeth is Missing, a poignant and compelling mystery based on the bestselling novel by Emma Healey.
A nostalgic look back into the ‘70s world of music, The Criterion Collection has released Rolling Thunder Revue: a Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese, featuring the music of Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and the poetry of Allen Ginsberg.
Several big screen offerings for the month feature horror releases such as 12 Hour Shift and Spell; comedies Fatman and Magic Max; dramas Princess of the Row (with Martin Sheen), Dreamland (Margot Robbie); suspense flicks Wander (Tommy Lee Jones) and Hearts and Bones. Also included are a variety of newly released Hallmark movies that will make you look forward to Valentine’s Day.
Avail yourself of all your local library has to offer during the winter months by reserving your copies online, calling the library and speaking to a librarian or coming in and browsing our shelves at your convenience.
