It’s the weekend, and there’s so much to watch across Disney+ and Hulu, in addition to the other streaming services, so I’ve highlighted some of my suggestions of what I’ve been watching this week, which include some brand new originals plus much more.

Here’s the rundown

Dashing Through The Snow

The latest holiday movie from Walt Disney Studios is “Dashing Through The Snow”, which tells the story of Eddie Garrick (Chris “Ludacris” Bridges) is a good-hearted man who has turned his back on Christmas due to a traumatic childhood experience. At the request of his wife, Allison Garrick (Teyonah Parris), from whom he is separated, Eddie takes his 9-year-old daughter Charlotte (Madison Skye Validum) to work with him on Christmas Eve, where they meet a mysterious man in a red suit named Nick (Lil Rel Howery). Eddie, who is a social worker, thinks the man is delusional and needs professional help, but when he evokes the wrath of a local politician (Oscar Nuñez), he and his daughter are taken on a magical adventure that just might restore his faith in Christmas.

This is a charming, easy-going holiday film that isn’t going to win any awards or become an instant Christmas classic, but it’s an easy watch to get you in the holiday spirit with a feel-good story.   It does give me “Hallmark” Christmas movie vibes but with a little more magic.  Give it a whirl this weekend.

“Dashing Through The Snow” is out now on Disney+

A Murder At The End Of The World

This is a mystery series with a new kind of detective at the helm — a Gen Z amateur sleuth and tech-savvy hacker named “Darby Hart” (Emma Corrin). Darby and eight other guests are invited by a reclusive billionaire (Clive Owen) to participate in a retreat at a remote and dazzling location. When one of the other guests is found dead, Darby must use all of her skills to prove it was murder against a tide of competing interests and before the killer takes another life.

The first two episodes were released earlier this week, and I enjoyed this new take on a murder mystery, which felt like a mix of “The Menu”, “Knives Out” and an Agatha Christie film.   Emma Corrin is great as Darby and with the use of flashbacks, we slowly get to learn more about her character.  The location, set in the beautiful Iceland, looks stunning and helps add to the idea that Darby is on her own to solve the murder.  It’s a little slow in places, since each episode is over an hour long, but I’d certainly recommend giving it a go.

Brawn: A Formula One Story

The unscripted documentary series hosted by Keanu Reeves tells the remarkable story of how Ross Brawn, in 2009, competing in the most expensive and technologically advanced racing series on Earth, made the impossible happen. His understaffed, underfinanced, and independent team won the World Championship, taking on the biggest titans of the industry – all after purchasing the team for just £1.

I really enjoyed this documentary, and I know very little about Formula One, but I found the whole story to be fascinating.  Keanu does a great job presenting the series and brings this story to a wider audience.   I really enjoyed learning more about the business behind F1.   After watching this documentary, I’ve even been playing the latest F1 video game a little just because it did a great job of giving me an insight into the sport.

Welcome To Wrexham

This week saw the release of the finale of the second season of “Welcome To Wrexham”, which is a show all about how Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds’ are trying to return Wrexham AFC, one of the oldest and most storied football teams in history, to glory.  In the second season, the series continues to track the club as they fight for promotion out of the National League and return to the English Football League. Dedicated staff and supporters hold on to the dream of returning the team and town to glory while bracing for the new-found challenges that fame has brought to their small community.

Much like with F1, I’m not a football fan, but there is something indearing about this documentary series, since it focuses on much more than just the actual game, but also puts a spotlight on the members of the team, both on and off the pitch.  I’ve watched both seasons of this show, and is one of the reasons I’ve been watching more sports documentaries like “Brawn” and “Quarterback” a go, since I do actually enjoy sports stories, just not sports!   This reminds me that I need to watch the new sports documentary, “Shohei Ohtani Beyond The Dream”, which was also added to ESPN+ and on Disney+ internationally.
