What I find interesting is how this sequel revives the series without only servicing diehard fans. It’s engaging and feels back to form.
On the acts side, there is the usuals: contortion, clown acts, balancing acts, but there is also new including a few aerial performances which dazzle and a yo-yo moment that is such a crowd pleaser.
School Of Rock sticks fairly closely to the film, which is probably why it succeeds entirely.
It’s a classic film about sexuality, social security and financial inequality, but transforms it into a film about the struggles of these individuals and how they “take back” from people who are part of a system that effectively financially ruined a nation.
There’s lots to like about Ready Or Not.
The show rings true as when the original film was released.
It’s a beautiful production with too many ideas that doesn’t explore them all as well as they could.
Thus I am happy to report that in season two Sweetbitter does what few shows do successfully, and that’s craft a sophomore season with more engaging characters, more spicy moments and generally, more.
It’s not wholly original and it’s not a space adventure that the movie poster seems to promote. And its human element slowly unravels itself.
It’s not a perfect film, and the script could be tighter with less broad humour, however what can you really expect from a film based on an app.
