Heroes Re­born Sea­son 1 ( 2015-) ( TV- 14) The orig­i­nal Heroes TV show started off with a bang and left be­hind dis­ap­pointed fans when it flamed out af­ter only four sea­sons. In recog­ni­tion of the fact that it was, in­deed, a bril­liant story, but not well- ex­e­cuted ( to­wards the end, that is), NBC has brought it back, this time with a whole new cast. Much like the orig­i­nal show, Heroes Re­born fol­lows the in­ter­twin­ing lives of strangers who dis­cover they have su­per­hu­man abil­i­ties. There are some who use these pow­ers for good, and some who want to har­ness pow­ers for evil pur­poses. The fun be­gins when they start to cross each other. Du­ra­tion: 1 3 episodes x 50 min­utes Genre: Drama/ Fan­tasy/ Sci- Fi What’s good: Bring­ing in much- loved orig­i­nal char­ac­ters What’s bad: Does not live up to for­mer glory Cast: Jack Cole­man, Zachary Levi, Rob­bie Kay Rat­ing: Sis­ters ( 2015) ( R) Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are some of the funniest fe­male celebs out there, so there’s bound to be in­ter­est in a film that pairs them to­gether. The movie in­tro­duces us to Maura ( Poehler), an overly re­spon­si­ble nurse, and her sis­ter Kate ( Fey), an un­or­gan­ised stylist, who has just been kicked out of her apart­ment. When the duo’s par­ents de­cide to sell the fam­ily house, they go home to help with pack­ing — but Kate con­vinces Maura to throw one last soirée. This is a party un­like any other and, as things go in­sane, you’ll un­der­stand why they say adults are re­ally over­grown chil­dren! Du­ra­tion: 1 hr 58 mins Genre: Com­edy What’s good: The chem­istry be­tween the ac­tors What’s bad: The hu­mour fails to im­press Cast: Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Maya Ru­dolph Rat­ing:
