CATS opened this week in cinemas worldwide and, honestly, we have no idea what to expect from this movie musical. (We haven't seen it yet.) Its Broadway counterpart broke box office records – but with stage makeup and a 1980s aesthetic instead of CGI faces and a strange new plot.

The holiday season is here again, and that means it’s time for Christmas movies! Hallmark has already been playing seasonal sweetness for weeks, and Netflix has launched their latest batch of Christmas-y films (including the third in the hugely popular A Christmas Prince series). However, for some people, Christmas movies don’t just include those with romance culminating on Christmas Eve, or with snowy scenes of Santa Claus and gift exchanges. Instead, some prefer to watch films that just…feel a little bit Christmas-y, even if it’s not immediately clear why: and these are some of the most popular non-holiday movies that everyone enjoys at the end of December.

It’s almost Friday the 13th and our superstitious silly energy is really coming out. Not only is it a Friday (practically the weekend), it’s also this strange time of year when we’re creeping up on the shortest day of the year. It’s spooky season part two, no matter what the calendar actually says, so tack on that extra spooky number 13 and all of the sudden we’re extra on edge. Let’s lean into that weird energy with some book recommendations for this silliest of superstitious days.
