Best resources, films and books for learning spanish

I'm spending the bulk of my spare time learning Spanish, and I'd be interested in any pointers. I'm a beginner, early to mid A2. There is a ton of content out there and I'm having trouble filtering.

I'm particularly interested in...
- Evidence based studies into efficacy of different methods?
- Online apps, Duolingo and Fluent U look interesting but seem a bit beta, and require a lot of typing which I dislike. I'm looking at subscribing but can't find much on actual success rates for these sites
- Spanish films, podcasts, books and shows, particularly suited to beginners.
- Reading online content in spanish in conjunction with a google translate chrome extension. Are there any apps out there that are purpose built for this?.
- Flashcards, I've checked out Anki, but the decks I've tried seem a bit random.
I find it hard to stick with linear audio/ video courses.
