SEVEN OF SEVEN – A Magnificent Seven

Each day during our final week, one of our regular writers will pick out seven highlights from our seven years of existence.

Between now and the New Year we’ll be giving you some of our signature columns, and in early January we will look back at our favourites from the last seven years.

So, to begin our farewell, we bring you the Monoglot Movie Club Season Finale, with a slight tweak in the rules to make it feel special. For (almost) the last time, let’s go over to our man in… Front of Netflix?

“So these 13 Poles walked into a bar…” starts Spank The Monkey, ominously.
