School Police - Interesting Japanese Drama Series with Unique Premise

Few days ago there was this new Japanese series released on Netflix which has an interesting premise. Plus I was also quite familiar with the main lead. So I decided to give this a try and finished the whole season yesterday. OK, let's start with it now.

Brief Story Line

When the government decided to implement a police system in school, Ryuhei Shimada (Tatsuya Fujiwara - Erased movie, Kaiji trilogy etc) who was from an elite police squad applied to be the pioneer and was placed in Akamine Middle School. His duty was to be a police officer guarding the school from various possible criminal activities. This made his colleague in Tokyo PD Saegusa Hiroki (Yamada Yuki - You are the Apple of My Life, Itazura na Kiss: Love in Tokyo TV series etc) very confused with Shimada's decision to be stationed in Middle school.

Scoob! - Fun Movie that Managed to Bring Back Nostalgic Memories and Filled with Laugh Out Loud Moments

This is also one of the movies that I have been looking forward to be released on HBO Go. I think it was one of those that was supposed to be released in Indonesian cinemas but was cancelled due to the pandemic. So it was certainly nice thing to be able to watch it here. All right, let's just get on with it.

Brief Story Line

Shaggy (Will Forte - Good Boys, The Last Man on Earth TV series etc) and Scooby Doo (Frank Welker - The Smurfs etc) have been very best friends since childhood. Together with Fred (Zac Efron - The Greatest Showman, Hairspray etc), Daphne (Amanda Seyfried - Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, Red Riding Hood etc) and Velma (Gina Rodriguez - Smallfoot, Annihilation etc), they formed a detective agency called Mystery Inc. to investigate paranormal activities. However, due to some reasons, Shaggy and Scooby felt their presence no longer required and chose to separate themselves from their friends.

Without Remorse - Pretty Standard Movie with Some Good Quality Actions in this Latest Tom Clancy Novel Adaptation

Another movie that was released during the weekend was this action movie. As a fan of action films, I would certainly give this a try, especially since it's based on a novel written by a well known author Tom Clancy. Ok, let's head on with the movie now.

Brief Story Line

Based on the intel from CIA officer Ritter (Jamie Bell - Jumper, Snowpiercer etc), a group of US Navy SEAL led by Lieutenant Greer (Jodie Turner-Smith - Queen & Slim etc) and Senior Chief John Kelly (Michael B. Jordan - Creed 2, Chronicle etc) went on a mission in Syria. Apparently though, there was a hidden agenda related to the assignment that would have impact on the involved team members.
