Sorry for the brief hiatus for this, our little weekly feature. Normal service resumes now that the holidays are finally over. Not that Stan took a break during the last few weeks, with new content being added daily. Some of the notable new additions we missed during our hiatus include the new "First on Stan" mini-series Little Women, and the premier of the Stan Original Romper Stomper series. Movie highlights released in the missing period include the original (and still the best?) Jumanji, the new Power Rangers movie and the meme to script Snakes on a Plane.

As for the last week, it was a pretty quiet one, especially in terms of new TV content. Other than a new episode of Will & Grace, the only other addition was a new season of Love Child.

There's a bit more going on in terms of movies, but more classics re-watches than new never-seens, if you know what I mean. Will Ferrell isn's everyone's cup of tea, so you'll either love or hate Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.

These next few movies are no stranger to the reboot/sequel/reboot again game, with the original Tobey Maguire, PS3 font title Spider-Man trilogy just being added (Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, and Spider-Man 3); and also the original 1998 Godzilla of which the only thing that I can remember about is the Puff Daddy "Come with Me" song on the soundtrack (and the only thing that I can remember about that song is the Led Zeppelin Kashmir guitar riff).

The two World Movies I will recommend this week share a similar theme, or at least a similar historical setting. Holocaust related drama are never an easy watch, and they are always an important watch, so check out A Bag Of Marbles and Fog In August.

Here's the complete list of the new additions to Stan for the week of January 2 - 8, 2018:

Will & Grace - Season 1, Episode 8
Love Child - New Season (Season 4)

Fog In August
Godzilla (1998)
Down By Love
Head Above Water
Spider-Man (2002)
Spider-Man 2
Spider-Man 3
One Thousand Ropes
Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby
A Bag Of Marbles
