    A wonderful addition to Netflix’s slate of films, a fitting tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman, and a welcome break from the wall-to-wall Christmas romcoms dominating the homepage at the moment.

    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.

    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.

    Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 Premiere (Netflix) TV Show Review
    Star Trek: Discovery premieres its third season without any sign of the actual Discovery, leaving the show - and the constipatedly earnest lead character of Burnham - free from the shackles of formula, and with a great new co-star to keep her in check.
