Netflix also boasts big-screen offerings too, including popular horror, attractive rom-coms, and a recent remake of a classic cult thriller.
Most interesting of all is that Adam Sandler’s new comedy is exclusive to Netflix, which cuts out the cinemas completely and brings Hollywood laughter straight into your home. Is it that modern equivalent of going straight to DVD or »

Christmas is all about spending time indulging in the things you most enjoy. It’s a time of giving, sure, but it’s also a time to treat yourself. We’re led to believe it’s all about family, sitting down at Grandma’s house, eating copious amounts of Quality Street and feigning interest in Doctor Who for the sake
