By Jenna Anderson - November 21, 2019 03:01 am EST Share 0 Comments 0 While most people are probably still sorting out their plans and recipes for Thanksgiving, the Christmas movie season is arguably already upon us. Holiday-themed romances are continuing to have a bit of a resurgence, whether on basic cable, the big screen, or a streaming service. Netflix has quickly become a bit of a powerhouse in the subgenre, thanks to the runaway hits they had with original movies A Christmas Prince and The Princess Switch. This year, the platform is offering up The Knight Before Christmas, a film filled with tropes so specific that the logline alone set Twitter ablaze a few months ago.

Sid Meier’s Colonization may not now be the most grand looking game but, back in the day, Civilization’s little brother was something of a treat.
