Do you prefer watching movies alone or with others?
Hasan Minhaj: I love watching movies with people, but now that I’m a dad with two kids, I’ll watch movies any way I can when I get the chance.
Who is the first person you call to talk about a new movie or show?
Hasan Minhaj: My best friend, Prashanth. We can get really argumentative and petty and just go head-to-head about why we love or hate something. But we’re still friends when it’s all said and done.
What’s your must-have movie snack?
Hasan Minhaj: I like to have the best of both worlds. I go one salty, one sweet, which to me is why the Peanut M&Ms are probably one of the greatest movie snacks ever.
Do you read reviews before seeing a movie or show?
Hasan Minhaj: No, I listen to my friends. If a friend texts me, “Hey, you have to check out ‘Ted Lasso,’” I’ll check it out.
How would you describe your watchlist?
Hasan Minhaj: I’d say it’s a guaranteed good time. I think if someone were to look at my watchlist, they would be like, “Hey, he loves movies that are really funny. He’s definitely a dad. And he definitely has a soft spot for 80s, 90s and early 2000s nostalgia.”
