With masses of new shows, movies, reality series and sport coming to DStv this week, it may be hard to know what to watch.
Luckily, DStv is here to help:
Terminator: Dark Fate
The M-Net Sunday Night movie this week opens with a break-neck and terrifying chase scene and keeps the pace right through to the touching finale. Following the classic Terminator and Terminator 2 (Empire calls it one of the greatest sequels of all time) is no easy task. But this movie makes a very good go of it.
The film stars Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger as Sarah Connor and the T-800 Terminator, respectively, reuniting the actors after 23 years, and introduces Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes and Gabriel Luna as new characters.
When a terminator (Gabriel Luna) is sent to kill an auto worker Dani Ramo (Natalia Reyes) and her family an enhanced human fighter Grace (Mackenzie Davis) and Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton from the original movies) are there to rescue her.
