  • Mandalorian finale: Munitions on the Bounty…

    Cornered and out-gunned and with no easy way of escape, it looks as if The Mandalorian, Cara and Greef’s days are numbered as Moff Gideon gets ready to annihilate their stronghold.  But far away in the desert, a re-programmed IG-11 still has some significant firepower and is racing to...
  • BBC’s Christmas Carol: deep and crisp and getting even…

    Ebenezer Scrooge (Guy Pearce) runs his company with a cold, some would say heartless outlook on life and the human condition. In his mind, the ‘hypocrisy’ of the masses is no substitute for his money ledger and he can reduce every decision his made to a justifiable balance of...
  • Force Majestic? Stellar, if ‘Greatest Hits’ ending for Skywalker saga…
