Understand and show support for these friends’ singular obsession. Here are ten gifts your favorite movie buff is bound to adore.

Brought to you by the creators of the YouTube cooking show Binging With Babish, this cookbook by Andrew Rea features recipes inspired by food items from 40 very famous movies. It’s got the pastrami sandwich from When Harry Met Sally…, the gravy with meatballs from Goodfellas, some bourbon-infused French toast sticks that had something to do with Kramer vs. Kramer, the pizza from Saturday Night Fever, the birthday cake from Sixteen Candles, and many other recipes that turned ordinary food into stars.
Say Anything | Movie Quotes Drinking Game
Have hours of unbridled fun challenging friends to identify classic movie quotes and threatening them with forced consumption with the Movie Quotes Drinking Game.

Also contains a die for occasional throwing fits.
Children of the Corn | Williams Sonoma Popcorn Seasoning Library

Shake one of them into your next bowl and your taste buds will experience an IMAX screen full of flavor.
