Cassie Talbot (Alexandra Beaton) is a small-town girl who's just been accepted into a prestigious university, Tate Reilly, along with her best friend, Alyssa (Bukola Walfall). Soon after arriving on campus, Cassie meets Alyssa's former friend Gabby Sanders (Joelle Farrow), a member of Tate Reilly's cheerleading squad who convinces Cassie to try out for the team. While Cassie's audition wows the team, and earns a spot on the squad, she soon after learns from her mother, Karen (Cynthia Preston), that her absentee father has dropped off the grid, leaving them scrambling to find a way to pay for Cassie's tuition.
After is a film about a freshman, Tessa Young, who was the perfect girl. Good grades, respectful daughter, and a loyal lover to her high school boyfriend. After starting the first semester of her first year of college, Tessa crosses paths with mysterious and rich, boy Hardin Scott. Hardin, although mysterious, is from London, England and was settling into a new life with his father and stepmother.

Better hold on! You’re in for a wild ride this New Year’s Eve. Let’s hope everything doesn’t turn upside-down!
Let me ask you guys a question: have you seen the Final Destination films? If yes, then you'll know what I mean when I say that the series we're looking at for this latest installment of the Old School Anime Reviews series is like an animated form of Final Destination. If you're not familiar with the films in question, they basically follow a group of people who cheat death—surviving a catastrophe that they should've died in due to one character suddenly developing psychic abilities. These characters are all subsequently picked off by Death in some seriously sadistic ways.
Carole and Tuesday is the latest show to be directed and created by Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Kids on the Slope), and alongside, helping him on the director’s chair, is Motonobu Hori (Animation Director—Psycho-Pass, Beck). The show is scripted by Aya Watanabe (A Gentle Breeze in the Village, The Town’s Children, Josee The Tiger and the Fish) while the original character design is done by Kubonouchi Eisaku (Manga—Cherry, At that Time. She). As the first half of the show is on Netflix, finally, I chose to watch the show in its dubbed form and so the english cast for the two leads are Jeannie Tirado (Genocidal Organ, Fire Force), who plays Carole, and Brianna Knickerbocker (The Rising of the Shield Hero, The Seven Deadly Sins), who plays Tuesday. The Japanese cast for Carole and Tuesday are Miyuri Shimabukuro (Hanebado!), and Kana Ichiniose (Darling in the FranXX, Fairy Gone) respectively. The show is produced by Studio Bones (Soul Eater, My Hero Acadamia).
Things are already rough enough for 17-year-old Jane Morgan (Hannah Vandenbygaart), as she finds herself caught in the middle of her parents' rocky separation. One night, while being driven home by her father Paul (Scott Gibson), the two are involved in an accident, which leaves Jane with an injured leg. Already on edge due to her parents' separation, Jane is further upset to learn that her father moved out of the house while she was in the hospital—and her mother Sam (Jessalyn Gilsig) has a younger boyfriend in physical trainer Brian (Jon Cor).
Another Adam Sandler Netflix exclusive movie has made its way to us. Every time he comes out with a new movie I cringe, because I don't have huge hopes for them. I'm starting to think that Netflix is probably the perfect place for Adam Sandler movies.
After narrowly surviving a car crash, Leah (Chelsea Hobbs) finds herself not only on the verge of being charged with drunk driving and auto theft, but with no memory of the crimes she supposedly committed or what led up to the accident. With Officer Barrett (Klea Scott) intent on keeping her in prison until her identity can be uncovered, Leah appears to only have two people in her corner: pro-bono lawyer Rick (Mark Famiglietti) and Dean (William McNamara), who introduces himself to Leah as her husband.
Jennifer Lopez is a public figure who many people would refuse to call a bonafide "triple threat" in the entertainment industry, and I believe this is a rather unfair judgement of her abilities, if we deliberate over her 30+ years of work in both music and film. Case in point for the latter: her acting in, and co-producing of, Hustlers, a film that not only presents a near-accurate depiction of an actual strippers's scam timeline, but also the nuances and complexities of life as a female stripper.
Would you like to take a trip back in time to 1960s Hollywood? Rick Dalton and Cliff Booth are sure to make your time entertaining.
Rim of the World is a little bit of an odd film. I totally get what they were trying to do with this movie, so maybe I'm getting a little too old to be watching these types of movies. Still, the nostalgia factor of movies of my past kind of make me have a weak spot for this movie.
