Christmas Comes Early from November 1

Prime can cure your premature festive fever with a shocking 22 Hallmark Christmas movies being added to their film library, about two months before the day itself. Mingle All The Way, Once Upon A Holiday, Love You Like Christmas…Santa’s streaming list rolls on.

If you’ve never seen one of these glorified screensavers, most of them involve a mismatched couple (corporate gal/country boy) falling in love with snowy small-town domesticity (and each other) against the backdrop of a baking competition/Christmas tree pageant/family reunion. I’m being snarky but you should actually play these movies in the background while going about your summer holidays! Before too long, the word ‘Christmas’ itself will sound absolutely meaningless to you! The most important thing about Christmas turns out to be that Christmas was right under your Christmas the Christmas Christmas!!

The Wheel of Time: Season 1 (November 19)

90 million fantasy readers will be wheely excited for this grand adaptation of Robert Jordan’s novels. Just about the only big names amidst the sprawling ensemble cast are Oscar nominees Sophie Okonedo and Rosamund Pike. But emerging Aussie talent Madeleine Madden could stun us as Egwene al’Vere, one of *checks Wikipedia* 2782 distinct characters from Jordan’s fourteen novels. Geez.

There’s some serious budget behind all eight hour-long episodes, and The Wheel of Time has already been given the go-ahead for another season. Go ahead and get emotionally invested, then, in the power and prophecy of the all-female Aes Sedai and their mythical mission.

Burning (November 26)

59 million acres, three billion animals, and countless lives. The Black Summer bushfires affected, if not destroyed, such a staggering segment of Australia: and yet we haven’t had time to breathe and look back, due to a slew of other national and global crises. This celebrated feature-length documentary promises to be unflinching in its approach to the devastation.

Burning has already been awarded the Sydney Film Festival’s Sustainable Future Award, and comes from a dream team of producer Cate Blanchett and Oscar-winning director Eva Orner. Victims, activists, and climate scientists are given the urgent platform to share their perspective on what happened and, perhaps most importantly, on how to ensure it never happens again.
