Tiger King

Netflix

★★★☆☆

Do you like big cats, someone who allegedly killed her husband (She definitely did), or Shaquille O’Neal? Well, boy oh boy do I have a show for you. “Tiger King” is a roller coaster of a documentary that came out in the beginning of quarantine. Junior Lizbeth Silva said, “ The show was so addicting I watched it all in one sitting.” while on the other hand Junior Ann Lindsay argued “It was just pointless people fighting over pointless things.” While the show may not be everyone’s cup of tea, it is a show that will definitely surprise you every episode.

Outer Banks

Netflix

★★★★

Miss the beach aesthetic because you’re stuck at home? Want a mystery making you second guess everything? Outer Banks is the perfect teen drama that keeps you on your toes. “The plot was so much better and I liked the whole ‘life on the water vibe’ it had rivalry, mystery, and a few love stories it checked all the boxes,” Junior Abby Roberts said.

The Kissing Booth 2 

Netflix

★★★★

Have you been in need of a new heart throb? Well today is your lucky day, on July 24, the sequel to the popular kissing booth came out, and Pleasant Grove students were raving about it. While Sophomore Mackenzie Williams  says, “I loved the story line and how it ended on a cliffhanger, I can’t wait for the next movie to see how it plays out.” Not everyone was as impressed, junior Kayce Tuberville strongly disagrees “It was just set up very poorly. It wasn’t horrible but it’s not something I’d watch again,” junior Kayce Tuberville said.“There’s better ‘love’ movies out there.”

Hamilton

Walt Disney Studios

★★★★★

Rap battles, romance, affairs, and choreography can always make early American history interesting. Hamilton is an award winning musical that everyone got to see this summer instead of listening to the soundtrack on repeat.  “The original Broadway cast was perfect, and each interaction in each different city was too,” Senior Caley Burnside said.
