NEW RELEASE MONDAY: TV SERIES REVIEW

 SAVED BY THE BELL 
GENRE: Comedy 
STARRING: Haskiri Velazquez, Mitchell Hoog, Josie Totah, Alycia Pascual-Peña, Belmont Cameli, Dexter Darden
RUN TIME: 30 min
SEASONS: 1 (2020 -)
 

This series center around a new group of Bayside High students from "overprivileged" and working-class families, among the latter of which were transferred to the school as part of a plan by now-California Governor Zack Morris—whose administration experiences controversy for closing too many low-income high schools—to send lower-income students to the highest-performing schools in the state.


This is the story of a group of students who get transferred to a new posh school after their former high school is closed down. It follows the students as they adjust to the change and blend in with their new surroundings. It is full of plot holes but it does the job it is expected to do (make the viewer laugh).

FUN FRIDAY: MOVIE REVIEW

6 UNDERGROUND 
Genre: Action, Thriller, Comedy

Four years after witnessing the horrors of a brutal regime in the Central Asian nation of Turgistan, an unnamed American billionaire and philanthropist, who made his fortunes from inventing neodymium magnets, fakes his own death to form an anonymous vigilante squad to take down criminals and terrorists that governments will not touch.

Apart from the ridiculous script and annoying scene cuts,  this movie ticks all the right box for a Friday night unwind movie: Explosion, good old car chase, crazy special effects and senseless killing. This movie leaves the viewers on the edge of their seats. If you are looking for a serious movie, stay away from this one.

FUN FRIDAY: TV SERIES REVIEW

REIGN 
Genre: Drama, Fantasy
Starring: Adelaide Kane, Megan Follows, Torrance Coombs Toby Rego, Jenessa Grant
Run Time: 42min
Seasons: 4 (2013 - 2017)


REIGN chronicles the rise to power of Mary Queen of Scots (Kane) when she arrives in France as a 15-year-old, betrothed to Prince Francis, and with her three best friends as ladies-in-waiting. It details the secret history of survival at French Court amidst fierce foes, dark forces, and a world of sexual intrigue.

Reign is a blend of drama, politics, Romance and intrigues set in the 16th century. Good acting, great chemistry and unpredictable plot makes this a compelling watch. The series however fails to be historically correct, with the wardrobe, food and dancing all falling short. Ignoring all these however, you can truly enjoy this series.
