Two Brooklyn teenage prodigies, C.J. Walker and Sebastian Thomas, build makeshift time machines to save C.J.'s brother, Calvin, from being wrongfully killed by a police officer.

What do you get when you combine science fiction in an urban environment? How about this? Are you tired of watching SCIFI TV shows or movies that does not include stories about people like you? Well, this movie is one the Caribbean community will enjoy on their watchlist. It tackles the scourge of police brutality in urban communities, and is set in the backdrop of an area of Brooklyn only known to Caribbean people.  Critics may not like it, but when do they every like anything urban?  Even so, there is the cameo of the most well-known actors from the most popular time travel movie of all times.

Guava Island

A young musician seeks to hold a festival to liberate the oppressed people of Guava Island, even if only for a day.

At first we thought this was an animated feature. The fact that Rihanna is in it and it is an island story was why we wanted to watch it. Although it is similar to other music inspired island stories, it was ambitious, short and delightful to watch as the story unfolds. People from the Caribbean should make this a part of their Caribbean watchlist.

ReMastered: Who Shot the Sherriff?

The violent political suppression of the roots reggae movement in Jamaica told through an investigation into Jamaican politics and the CIA's involvement in the mysterious shooting of Bob Marley.

Netflix delved into the history behind some of the most legendary names in music with this investigative docu-series. The three that peaked my interest was those surrounding the attempted assassination of Bob Marley, the origin of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” and the “Killing of Sam Cooke”. There are information revealed in the series that will shock the public especially the speculations surrounding who was really responsible for the attempt on Bob Marley’s life.

Good Omens

A tale of the bungling of Armageddon features an angel, a demon, an eleven-year-old Antichrist, and a doom-saying witch.

This Amazon Prime series is off beat but captivating. The characters are animated and that is because they are perfectly cast. The story is about the fight between good and evil which is the theme of almost every religious infused story.  It is rather mundane, self serving, and uniquely funny.  It is for that reason viewers include it on their watchlist to see what happens next.

Game of Thrones: Final Season

Game of Thrones (2011-2019)
57 min|Action, Adventure, Drama, Fantasy, Romance|April 17, 2011
9.4Rating: 9.4 / 10 from 1,578,171 usersMetascore: N/ATV-MA
Nine noble families fight for control over the mythical lands of Westeros, while an ancient enemy returns after being dormant for thousands of years.

For those who are still reeling over the way the series ended, I am with you. Although we disagree, you must admit the outcome was inevitable. It was our love for the characters that caused us to yearn for more of a happy ending. Unfortunately if we forget the history of the characters bloodline we will continue to mourn the outcome. If you feel that way, go back and watch the entire series again. We started it and boy it’s even better a second time around now that we know how it ended.
