Netflix follows up The Princess Switch: Switched Again with another disappointing seasonal sequel to one of their holiday hits, The Christmas Chronicles.
The original cast, director, and screenwriters from Netflix’s surprise hit The Princess Switch have reunited for The Princess Switch: Switched Again to offer fan service for at-home viewers. But even though the production remembers what tickled audiences the first time around, they have failed to capture the same spark in this rusty sequel.
His House not only offers a new take on haunted horrors, but it offers a weaved interpretation of grief and guilt that’s both innovative and effectual. It’s essentially the ideal horror movie for audiences looking for scares and substance.
I’m Thinking of Ending Things is a melancholic psychodrama with spurts of deliberate awkwardness, but should you expect anything else from writer/director Charlie Kaufman?

Making a parallel connection with the present, fate seems to be cutting me a break. Love Wedding Repeat has found its way to me after I survived Netflix’s Coffee & Kareem. Maybe if I didn’t watch that horrendous comedy, I…
Director Michael Dowse comes from an eclectic filmography, but he’s becoming the go-to guy for mainstream fare. He recently brought audiences Stuber, which was an efficient buddy comedy but aggressively ordinary. But, following up a bland movie with something so unfunny and foul will make you value mediocrity.
