Before the Review: Coronavirus continues to dominate the news, impacting people’s lifestyles. Moving on, the UK is back in lockdown, Joe Biden has “won” the presidential election in United States of America (although it may similarly become as messy as Brexit), Pfizer and BioNTech appear to have developed a vaccine against COVID-19 which is 90% effective and an entitled cyclist ran a red light at a four way junction and nearly got himself run over. Yikes.

The current list of countries on and added to the travel corridor for England includes Akrotiri and Dhekelia, Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, The Azores, Barbados, Bermuda, British Antarctic Territory, British Indian Ocean Territory, British Virgin Islands, Brunei, the Canary Islands, Cayman Islands, the Channel Islands, Cuba, Dominica, Estonia, Falkland Islands, Faroe Islands, Fiji, Finland, Gibraltar, Greece (includes Crete, Lesvos, Mykonos, Santorini, Serifos, Tinos and Zakynthos), Greenland, Grenada, Hong Kong, Ireland, the Isle of Man, Japan, Latvia, Macao (Macau), Madeira, Malaysia, Maldives, Mauritius, Montserrat, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Norway, Pitcairn/Henderson/Ducie/Oeno Islands, Seychelles, Singapore, South Korea, South Georgia/South Sandwich Islands, St Barthélemy, St Helena / Ascension + Tristan da Cunha, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Pierre and Miquelon, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. If you are travelling to a country not on the list, you must self isolate for 12 days.

Review: Adapted from the acclaimed DC graphic novel as a retelling of the Superman mythology if he had landed in (Soviet) Russia. An interesting premise, although it appears to appease a certain demographic in some scenes. But if you keep an open mind, the story is left open for potentially more to build on (Looks to have taken inspiration from Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths and Flashpoint as well).This movie is definitely not suitable for young children given the violence, but worth watching nonetheless.
