    by Cas Harlow
    The Christmas Chronicles 2 (Netflix) Movie Review
    Kurt Russell returns for a well-meaning, bigger budget, but slightly less endearing follow-up to last year's surprisingly enjoyable Christmas Chronicles, which should at least remind us that the Holidays are coming.

    by Tom Davies
    The Good Lord Bird (Sky) TV Show Review
    If Showtime's dramatisation of the life of a religious abolitionist and his ill-fated plan to lead a bloody capture of the US arsenal doesn't sound like it might be a laugh a minute, I think I might be able to change your mind!

    by Kumari Tilakawardane
    Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey (Netflix) Movie Review
    Like it or not, it’s pretty much the most wonderful time of the year. Even through lockdowns, a pandemic and worldwide upheaval, Christmas does not care about your melancholy. Not keen on all this Christmas spirit and seasonal magic? You should probably steer clear of Jingle Jangle, which is not merely just a Christmas film, but also a musical to boot.
