However, if you fancy a break from bungling burglars and singing muppets, Netflix has some absolute crackers arriving this December. From Scott Pilgrim Vs The World to Jurassic World, there’s a decidedly non-tinselly film for every taste.
Netflix UK shared a packed roster of what’s coming to the platform over the festive season, with the cheeky caption, ‘don’t try to tell me John Wick 3 isn’t a Christmas film’.
Fans have reacted with all the jolliness of Father Christmas finding a nice glass of brandy by the fireplace.
One person cheered:
JOHN WICK 3 IS GONNA BE ON NETFLIX??????? Marry me.
While another – in the face of many naysayers – declared:
John Wick 3 IS a Christmas movie.
Now, as much as I love belting out Auld Lang Syne over more than a few glasses of prosecco on New Year’s Eve, there’s also merit to staying in and writing a bunch of well intentioned but ultimately useless resolutions.
And who better to cosy up with while looking to the – hopefully magnificent – year ahead than internet boyfriend and seemingly faultless individual Keanu Reeves?
If you’ve yet to check out his smouldering performance in John Wick 3, then here’s the IMDb synopsis:
John Wick is on the run after killing a member of the international assassin’s guild, and with a $14 million price tag on his head, he is the target of hit men and women everywhere.
If you aren’t already pulled in by the prospect of further thrills with everyone’s favourite dog person, then you should check out some of the extremely favourable reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.
Enjoying a fresher than toothpaste 90% reviewers’ score, the critical consensus on Rotten Tomatoes is as follows:
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum reloads for another hard-hitting round of the brilliantly choreographed, over-the-top action that fans of the franchise demand.
A very Merry Wick-mas and a Happy Kea-Nu Year!
John Wick 3 will come galloping into your Netflix account on December 31.
