As Christmas quickly approaches, we decided to break from our usual format and keep things loose and fun. So instead of discussing our short films selections we are taking a look at two underappreciated Christmas-ish films. First Courtney praises the diversity in the Queen Latifah vehicle Last Holiday, and then Andrew dives into his deep love for Danny Boyle’s warm-hearted children’s film Millions.

Cohost of Changing Reels, Courtney Small from Cinema Axis, consumes everything cinema from big budget spectacles to small foreign fare. He has contributed pieces to various publications and has been a guest on several film related podcasts. Courtney is also a member of the Online Film Critics Society as well as the Canadian Association of Online Film Critics.
Cohost and Editor of Changing Reels, Andrew Hathaway from Can’t Stop the Movies, is more of a hermit than his charming cohost. He spends what may be seen as an unhealthy amount of time analyzing cinematic fare as light as Magic Mike XXL and as enigmatic as The Midnight Swim. When he’s not taking a deep dive into cinema he’s contributed to books like Thoughts on The Thin Man. The partnership between Andrew and Courtney started through their podcast series on the movies of Denis Villeneuve and blossomed into Changing Reels.
The art for Changing Reels comes commissioned from Seth Gorden, Andrew’s frequent collaborator on Why Video Games and one of the creative minds behind Earnest and Purcell.
