Thursday Movie Picks #103: High School Reunions

I've missed the last two weeks because I've been religiously watching UEFA Euro 2016, which is like the FIFA Football World Cup but for European teams. It's been pretty good, Iceland have done remarkably well and England beat Wales in the last minute, which shut up my Welsh colleagues. I was really smug about it until Wales got further than England after progressing to the quarter finals. England, meanwhile, were beaten by Iceland. This marked the second time we embarrassed our selves on the European Stage in less than a week

But this week I’m back and the theme for this week is high school reunions. Make sure to check out -

I admit that TV is not something I watch frequently as there's plenty of incredibly popular programmes I have yet see of which include House of Cards, Breaking Bad and anything Marvel (except for one episode of Jessica Jones). That said, however, as a horror fan and a fan of the Scream franchise I did check out the TV series of Scream.With the new series about to start, I thought I'd review the first series.

At the time of writing this it is two months until the 30th July 2016, marking the day that it's 50 years, to the very day, that England won it's first and only FIFA World Cup.

Football fans have been treated this season with Leicester defying the odds and winning the Premier League in what is arguably the greatest sporting achievement of all time and they'll be treated once again with this touching documentary on England's greatest defender.
