John Boyega stars in Small Axe: Red, White and Blue | Amazon Prime

I would like to discuss my THOUGHTS about the Netflix movie Happiest Season with you all but I don’t want to spoil the ending if you have not seen it. Suffice to say it could have used 100 percent more of both Aubrey Plaza and Dan Levy. The ending was… disappointing. Like VERY. It’s fine, but man I was hoping a Hallmark-esque LGBTQ rom-com might go with a more unexpected ending. K-Stew deserved better.

So as not to become too ensconced in holiday rom-com land, I just started The Undoing. Gotta keep those streaming algorithms guessing.

Before we get to the latest new trailers, in honor of the original Darth Vader, David Prowse, who died this weekend, let’s watch the original trailer for The Empire Strikes Back.

Look how brave this patio lamp in Spider-Man: Miles Morales is | Doctor Curiosity

As any avid gamer knows, bugs and glitches are part of the deal. Sometimes they take gameplay to a whole other level, as seems to be the case with Spider Man: Miles Morales where players unexpectedly turned into inanimate objects, including a patio space heater (there’s a probably joke there about great power and great responsibility but we’re above puns at The Verge dot com) (spoiler: we totally are not).

The patio heater incident was weird enough, but it’s not the only strange inanimate object to abruptly replace a player in-game:
