‘Wonder Woman #79’ (review) at Forces of Geek

‘Downton Abbey’ (film review, 2019) at Forces Of Geek

‘Downton Abbey’ (film review, 2019) at Forces Of Geek

The film expansion of Downton Abbey starts nearly after we left the Crawleys in July of 1927. Rarely does a series, British or American, jump from the small screen to the big and the challenges of storytelling in both mediums are quite different. Without the luxury of an episodic return, the film must resolve itself by the end, and I am pleased to say that this one does.
