Movie review: ‘Enola Holmes 2’ is a delightful sequel

The first Enola Holmes movie — featuring the younger sister of famous literary detective Sherlock Holmes — premiered in the midst of the nightmare of a year that was 2020, in a world still upended by the COVID pandemic when theatrical film releases were few and far between.  Enola Holmes

TV review: ‘House of the Dragon’ one of my favorite geek stories this year
