From The Breakfast Club to Gerald’s Game, check out these classic one-location movies to watch during quarantine!
“For better or worse, isolation has become the new normal for most of us—and movies and television have become an opportunity to escape.

Want to wear Baby Yoda and R2D2 on your face? Disney is launching Star Wars-themed face masks!
“While face masks are still hard to find online and creators on Etsy often have a backlog wait for weeks, Disney is coming with their own masks with some of our favorite characters on them.

Because these apps are based on similar technologies to more mainstream online communications apps, like Voice-Over-IP (VoIP) and online collaboration solutions, their features are often very similar.”
Is there a snack more delightful than Goldfish? Here are every flavor of these fish-shaped treats, ranked.
