White Christmas (1954)
The singer revealed the tracklist on Thursday for You Make It Feel Like Christmas — her first holiday album and song since covering The Vandals’ “Oi To The World” with No Doubt in 1997.
Among the 12-tracks are a mix of holiday classics and fresh seasonal tunes, including the title song which features Shelton, 41, and Stefani, 47, singing about the red-hot romance.
“Sleigh bells singing ‘Hallelujah’ / Stars are shining on us too / I want to thank you,
The singer revealed the tracklist for her upcoming Christmas album, You Make It Feel Like Christmas, on Thursday, featuring a little teaser of the title track, a duet with Blake Shelton.

Titles listed in the teaser include, “Crocodile,” “Arkangel,” “Hang the DJ” (which appears to star Rosario Dawson), “USS Callister,” “Metalhead,” “Black Museum.” The trailer doesn’t give us much to go on, a few short clips accompany each new title, but with no official synopses released, all us fans can do is speculate what the episodes will be about. Netflix did not disclose an official release date for the new episodes, but ‘soon’ is that we were told in the teaser.
As far as Science Fiction goes, the film and TV shows that audiences have watched over the years have often featured some sense of foreboding. What happens if… This could be James Cameron’s Terminator which shows a world in which human beings keep on pushing the limits of technology to achieve military dominance, only for those machines to become self-aware and enslave humanity. It’s our ever-growing greed and quest for perfection that ultimately pushes us further away from our own humanity. As technology develops, everything becomes easier, but at what price?
Like Cameron’s vision, plenty of science fiction films and TV shows warn us of the dangers of crossing human ambition with technology. As far as human technological development is concerned though, there have been huge strides forward since the turn of the century.

Evening all, and I hope you’re having a wonderful Christmas Day. It’s time to add a little extra sparkle to your celebrations, with a Christmas movie-themed Strictly special. Frankie Bridge, Denise Lewis, Ainsley Harriott, Pamela Stephenson Connolly, Gethin Jones and Melvin Odoom will be taking a turn around the dancefloor this evening, paying tribute to all our festive family film favourites.
My money’s on Frankie for the win – she’s dressing up as Elsa from Frozen, so definitely time to gather the children around the TV like they used to in days of yore. Talking of which, Matt Goss is singing White Christmas, because Strictly is the 80s gift that keeps on giving.

We return once again to quite possibly one of my favourite TV shows currently airing, the dark sci-fi anthology series Black Mirror created by my personal hero Charlie Brooker, who ended the show’s run on Channel 4 by gifting us with a truly depressing and characteristically twisted festive special entitled White Christmas.
Again being that this is an anthology series, with this episode being comprised of three mini stories connected by a framing device which acts as a fourth story, I really can’t divulge too much without spoiling the episode too much. While I sometimes spoil other films (I’ve

The singer nominated herself (for the Rosemary Clooney part, no doubt) during her holiday musical extravaganza in Nashville on Friday night. And by all means take her seriously, because she’s earned the right to call herself a queen of Christmas music, especially in her adopted hometown.

Think Christmas TV has always been warm and fluffy? Think again, as we revisit some disturbing vintage festive specials...
The festive season holds long-held ties to the macabre. From the classic novels of Charles Dickens to the melancholy of the Christmas carol canon, Christmas has always harboured a darker side, lurking beyond the tinsel and mince pies. That role has extended to festive television: for every smiles-and-silliness sitcom special, there’s a programme with an altogether more disturbing spin on the season – be that a dramatic Christmas episode imbued with fear and bloodshed, or a family classic whose ostensibly wholesome charms look questionable in retrospect.

White Christmas was made in 1954 (exactly 20 years before Black Christmas!) and was directed by Michael Curtiz. Bing Crosby teamed up with madcap funny man Danny Kaye and partnering with those two show biz pros as sisters were Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen. One of the most popular films of 1954, White Christmas opens and closes with the title song, while in between it’s filled with one great musical number after another. Crosby and Kaye play entertainers who went through W.W.II together and decide to host a fundraising

Political satire The Waldo Moment from Black Mirror's second series deserves re-evaluation in light of real-world current events...
If you’re looking to inspire debate among fans of Black Mirror, Charlie Brooker’s despairing Twilight Zone for the technological age, start with the simplest question of all: ask which of the show’s 13 episodes to date are ‘the best’. Everyone has their set of favourites. Episodes range from 44 minutes to 89, take place in past, present and future, and differ wildly in tone, style and ideas. Like a tainted chocolate box, Black Mirror presents different flavours for different pop culture palettes.

It wasn’t until the 1980s when It’S A Wonderful Life became the perennial holiday favorite it’s known as today. The ultimate feel-good classic from director Frank Capra was a box-office disappointment when it was initially released in 1946. Due to a clerical error in 1974, the film went into public domain and was then shown on every low-rent local access channel in varying degrees of
