How to Entertain Your Kids During Lockdown

At the request of Damian, this is a guide for parents or older siblings who are wondering what they should put on TV for their kids to keep them entertained, and maybe even help them learn something.

Top 10 Movies to Watch in Quarantine

This list isn’t just aimed at my family and friends, although they should definitley watch at least a few of these, because I don’t think they have.

Knives Out: The Best Film of 2019?

After months of anticipation, I finally went to see Knives Out with my mates the other day. My expectations were sky-high, which is always dangerous. It made it a very, very difficult task to live up to my expectations. I’d watched the trailer a million times, watched all the press junkets, and had banged on about it non-stop. I’m a huge Rian Johnson fan, and … Continue reading Knives Out: The Best Film of 2019?
