Film review: Bullet Train

Film review: Downton Abbey – A New Era

Downton is a franchise built on country-manor snobbery, which means the quality and serving sizes above and below the stairs remain consistent. Time to check in with the toffs and their servants who, over seven seasons and two movies, have been variously to jail, hell, and now, France.
