It’s Chriiiiistmas: Must Watch Christmas Movies

And so we reach December, the month when it becomes acceptable once more to put a giant tree in your living room. Time to hang up those stockings, and settle in for a Christmas movie to warm you up, and guard against the cold winter chill. So when better than now to dust off the old…

The Passenger “Episode One” Review

“I’m warning you, it’s not a pretty sight”, a man tells ballsy detective Anaïs Châtelet as they approach a train station maintenance pit. He’s not wrong.
