Review: So I actually didn’t actually watch The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air when it was airing in the 90s. It wasn’t until the re-runs a bit later on that I finally managed to get through its six season run, and this was after I saw Will Smith in the ground breaking blockbuster movie, Independence Day. When hearing that a reunion of the original cast was going to be aired on sky, I finally managed to get though the documentary, and I have to say, it really was heartfelt, bringing back memories of a different time. The documentary itself really draws you in that it’s like you are there, with the cast, through the journey they are sharing. Definitely worth a watch, if you are able to

Review: Another one that slipped me by. I was very intent on watching this sequel however, it just didn’t work out. But I have to say, Mark Ruffalo certainly has more action sequences here which thankfully, are not CGI related (That stint would come in Thor: Ragnarok a year later). The movie packs in more than its predecessor and adds more star power in Daniel Radcliffe, but no magic with wands though and you can’t go wrong with Morgan Freeman. A few twists and turns in the movie, one rather riveting sequence in the second of the series, with a third movie expected in 2022, depending on current events in this pandemic
