Disney Channel Original Spin Movie Review on Disney+

Blog and Video Description: In this episode of the Mattacritic, I will be reviewing and analyzing the Disney Channel Original Movie called Spin that is currently on Disney+. I have reviewed Disney Channel Original Movies before, and I have told you in those reviews that these are quality movies. It is a matter of just realizing, yes, they are made for kids in mind, but adults can find something in them if they look hard at these movies. I reviewed movies such as Ally Cats Strike, Shook, Dad Napped, Avalon High, Invisible Sister, and the Swap. As I told you in those reviews, these movies are well done, and they have a message for people to learn. Life is not easy is what I usually get in these movies, and we are all stronger than we think we are. Spin is about an Indian American girl who likes to make mix of playlists to help her family restaurant of Spirit of India to be able to get through the Sunday Dinner Rush. She will find out as the movie progresses that she has a desire to be a DJ. This is what the movie will show as she learns it is okay to have several interests and not just one. I will give you my rating at the end of the review. I hope this episode will inspire you to read, watch, and learn.

As was mentioned before, Reah is the name of the girl who is an Indian American girl. This means her family is of Indian descent from India. She will meet Max in the restaurant. Max tells her that he is a DJ, and he is impressed that she made the mix that is playing in the Spirit of India which is Reah’s father’s restaurant. Her father is the owner of the restaurant. Her grandmother is her maternal grandmother. Reah’s mother Mira died when she was 8, and it is just her, her father, grandmother, and her brother. Her brother is younger, if I had to guess, I would say he is 8 years old from looking at the kid. He is a good kid, and Reah is a good girl, and is very responsible for her age. She is 15 years old in this movie, and she wants to do everything to help her father as she cares about him. Her grandmother dances in front of Max and his mother with a full house at the restaurant of Spirit of India. Max tells Reah that this is legit awesome. I would have to agree with Max, it is, and why wouldn’t one like it? Life has enough stress. It is good to dance, to have fun. It is important to work hard, but it is important to break out and have fun.

As Asha will tell Reah’s father how I cannot dance, your daughter always picks glorious music. She tells Reah’s father, you might as well tell me to stop breathing if I cannot dance. I can understand that it will be like telling me to stop writing or creating videos like I have been doing. I know that it helps me. Reah’s father struggles with the loss of Mira. As Asha tells him, Mira would not want you to just hide from the world with work and your children.

Reah will flashback till when she was 6 years old, and her mother will help her sleep as she is hearing too many noises. Her mother tells her to focus on that and use it to help you, and it works. Her mother tells her that there is music all around us. We must just find it. It is all music according to Reah’s mother.

The following morning, Reah will see Max, and Molly and Waston will notice her smiling. Molly and Watson tell her, we have never seen you smile like that before. Watson tells her, come on, give us details. She tells them that she saw Max in her family restaurant of Spirit of India. Reah will tell them, can we talk about anything else besides this. Watson shows them the designs he has been making for STEM club. As Molly and Reah tell Watson, these are amazing. Watson tells them, I know. Watson is confident and he is good at designing, and he enjoys doing it.

After that Reah bumps into Ginger with Molly and Watson, who is Reah’s best friend besides Molly and Watson. She tells them when she sees them, you are my favorites after she was taking selfies with people that follow her as they told Ginger they are big fans. Ginger is talented in that, but what makes her great is that she does not let that get to her head. She is popular but treats people with respect. She is hard working in what she does, and she tells Reah that she is cool after Molly and Watson told her that she has a crush on Max. Reah told Ginger that his name is Max, and she was able to find his social media page without his last name. Reah is impressed that Ginger was able to find Max’s page without his last name. Ginger tells Reah with Watson, and Molly that Max is from London, England. Molly and Watson are teasing Reah telling her that she could be Princess Reah. As Reah tells them, Max is way too cool for me since he is a DJ. As Ginger tells Reah, do not sell yourself short, you make cool playlists all the time. Speaking of music, the music in this movie is awesome.

Ginger shows Reah, Molly, and Watson the design of the website on her phone. Watson tells her that this looks like a silent cry for help. Ginger says, yes, I need your help Watson. Watson consults Molly, and Molly tells Ginger, 2 pizzas. Ginger tells them, yes, I agree to your terms. Ginger tells them, "I will see you later”. The website is to help promote the festival of color which is a Hindu holiday called Holi, and people dress in white, and the spray themselves with a bunch of different colors that end up looking like a rainbow. That to me is cool to say the least.

Reah, Molly and Watson are in the STEM class and Ms. Lahey wants to see what they have been working on for the class projects. Molly wants Ms. Lahey to sign a confidentiality agreement. She does, and they continue. As Watson says, Eddison had the light bulb, Steve Jobs had the phone, we have the pizza drone. They try to deliver the pizza with the drone, and the drone shorts out and drops the pizza to the ground. The pizza box opens with the pizza coming out of it. Ms. Lahey tells them they are cleaning that up, and their project needs more work. Ms. Lahey asks Reah what her project is. Reah tells Ms. Lahey that she has been developing a point-of-sale application for her father’s restaurant. As Ms. Lahey tells her, this project is supposed to be fun. Reah tells her that she is enjoying it after Molly made fun of her saying that all of us kids are into it these days. Reah points out that this app will help my dad out a lot.

Reah will show her dad the point-of-sale application that she has created for the restaurant of Spirit of India. Reah told him that this application will help you know what ingredients you need to get when you are running low on them. This makes sense, restaurants need to know what supplies they need to make sure they are getting food ready to cook and prepare to get out to their customers.

Ginger will be depressed when she sees Molly, Watson, and Reah. She told them that their DJ just got suspended for cheating on their history exam. She wants to hide under the table. Molly and Watson let her know that they can beep box. Ginger wants to forget this, but Reah tells them about Max. Ginger asks Reah, "Do you think he is good at spinning, or do you think he is cute”? Reah will tell Ginger, “He seems to know what he is talking about”. In my mind, this makes sense, what does Ginger have to lose at this point. The dance squad finds Max, and Ginger encourages Reah to come with her as she figures that she would like to tell Max herself that she helped him to get a sweet gig.

Reah with Ginger meets Max, and Max points out to them, that he wished that he had his equipment. Ginger points out to Max; it is like rock stars that go unplugged. The dance squad will promote the event, and it looks awesome with all the different colors that they use. It looks like fun when it is shown in this movie.

The movie will progress with Reah asking Max to help to teach her to DJ. They will go to Victory Vinyl Records where Max shows her the ropes. They get two records, and Max tells them that they need to figure out how to put the 2 records together. It is a matter of using the mixer. Reah figures out there is a difference between the beats per minute. Reah can do that in her head. Max is impressed that she has a calculator in her brain. DJ Luka Cent is Record shopping and hears them performing and is impressed with their picks in music. He lets them know that he is. They come up front to pay and he tells the cashier to hand them some fliers. The fliers say battle of the beat masters. He tells them it is a local competition for teen DJs that he does every year. He encourages them to come and sign up. Reah asks him what he is looking for. He tells them, tell a story and makes us care.

The movie will progress with Reah having to juggle work, school, and her learning how to be a DJ. She believes that she cannot be an artist, but she is wrong. She needs to find her music as her grandmother will tell her. She wants to hide in the restaurant after she gets her heart broken, but her grandmother tells her that she cannot do that. When something bad happens, you cannot just hide from it, you need to face it. Life is hard, but it is good, a person just must find it. Reah’s growth will come from exploring other passions like this, and it will help her to grow, and she will find out, it is good to have those things like this as she finds out that she is good being a DJ.

As not to be revealed, nothing more will be revealed here. It does bring the viewer to the climax of the story and shows it is okay to have other passions and to explore them. It helps a person to grow when a person does this.

I will give you, my rating. I give the Disney Channel Original Movie called Spin, a 10 out of 10. It is fun, but it is good to see a person who is a minority female to have a role like this. She is a decoder as she tells Max in this movie. That is why she is good with numbers. She likes music, and as her grandmother will tell her, you are your father’s daughter, and your mother’s daughter. You are not one or the other, the best of both live in you. Your mother lives in you, you just must let it out. Her mother lives in her. Reah has her mother’s ear, and she loves music like her mother did when her mother was alive. Reah will understand that she was born to do this, and this is her destiny as she finds out. I do understand that, if you do not pursue your dreams and passions, it will haunt you. This is what I am doing, but you must work hard, and keep at it. Nothing will happen, if you do not try. A person must try and hope for the best. Does Reah win the battle of the beat masters?
