Fanbase Press’ 2020 Holiday Gift Guide: Movies and TV

In this unprecedented year, deciding on gifts for friends and family is likely to be the last thing on your mind this holiday season. Fanbase Press is here to help with the best recommendations for the must-watch movies and TV shows from the year as suggested by our staff and contributors. Whether you prefer to binge-watch on Netflix or like the look of Blu-ray sets on a shelf, the following TV shows and films are perfect to share with the geeks in your life this holiday season.




Tenet (4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray + Digital)
Recommend by Bryant Dillon

Tenet is the latest release from writer/director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight, Inception) and follows a secret agent embarking on a dangerous, time-bending mission to prevent the start of World War III. Like most of Nolan’s films, this one was highly anticipated, but few saw it in theaters due to the shutdowns and restrictions for safety due to COVID-19. Tenet might be the ideal gift for the cinephile or sci-fi fan on your gift list.

A Charlie Brown Christmas 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition (DVD)
Recommend by Bryant Dillon

As discussed during a recent episode of The Fanbase Weekly podcast, Apple has snatched up the rights to all of the Peanuts specials, so this is probably the year to make sure you and your loved ones always have access to this Christmas classic. Charles M. Schulz’s tale of the search for the true spirit of the holiday in a world rife with consumerism is a timeless tale you’ll want to continue to share year after year.

Wolfman's Got Nards: A Documentary (Blu-Ray)
Recommend by Bryant Dillon

Perfect for an horror or '80s film fan, this documentary covers the story behind the cult classic, The Monster Squad. More than just a behind-the-scenes look at the film, this documentary is heart-felt, genuine, and speaks to the human story behind pouring your passion into a project, only to believe that it’s an utter failure. Watching the filmmakers and cast come to realize that, years later, what their project means to others is the very definition of why fandoms are worth celebrating.

A One-Year Subscription to Disney+
Recommend by Bryant Dillon

With The Mandalorian, Marvel’s 616, and the upcoming WandaVision all located in one place, a gift of a year’s subscription to Disney+ might be one of the best options for those on your gift list. While this can only be used for new subscribers (no extending subscriptions that already exist), Disney+ claims it’s a present with something for everyone, including classic Disney’s films, National Geographic documentaries, Marvel, Star Wars, and more! This holiday, give a year of stories.
