5. Watch Wonka
We all know Gene Wilder's epic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Wonka looks no less fantastic: Armed with nothing but a hatful of dreams, young chocolatier Willy Wonka (played by Timothée Chalamet) manages to change the world, one delectable bite at a time. A perfectly-timed film ahead of the winter holidays!
