Downton Abbey – A British Perspective…Sort Of

This week sees the American release of Downton Abbey 2: A New Era (read review of the first movie here) and I’ve been asked to write about it from a British point of view. This always makes me smile as, while the UK is only the 21st most populous country in the world, there’s still […]

First View Movie Review – Gosford Park

Ah, yes… a British historical drama set in the early twentieth century created and written by Julian Fellowes. Oh… hang on… that’s Downton Abbey. Gosford Park is, in fact, a British historical drama set in the early twentieth century created and written by Julian Fellowes… bugger.  I’m being whimsical.

What Downton Abbey is About, and How to Binge Watch It

I’m doing a 6-season rewatch of UK period drama Downtown Abbey — and Mary Mother of God — I’ve forgotten how melodramatic this show was. There are entire storylines I fast-forward past as I trudge along. (I refuse to pay any more attention the overwrought Anna/Mr. Bates storyline than I absolutely have to.) All The […]

Movie Review – The Man Who Invented Christmas

This charming little film does a nice job ushering in Christmas time at the theaters. I really don’t know how much of this movie was fact or fiction concerning the character of Charles Dickens. In the movie, one moment he’d be in a screaming rage, and the next, a funny, engaging fellow. I think in […]
