The Greatest Showman (Film Review)

Film: The Greatest Showman
Year: 2017
Genre: Biography, Musical, Drama
Cast: Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Zac Efron
About: Celebrates the birth of show business, and tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.

My Review: 
As someone who only really likes musicals that are more of a horror nature this film really peaked my interest as it was to do with show business. With a cast I had grew up watching and becoming a fan of I had to see if this film was as good as I thought it would be and I was not disappointed at all. This film has an original soundtrack that not only inspired me in my real life but also that made me feel exactly what the characters were feeling.
This film follows Hugh Jackman as P.T. Barnum who was the first person to ever create a circus and do a style of entertainment that was not of the norm. As someone who was not aware of him and did not know his story this really inspired me as he came from nothing and made, every obstacle he had into a positive thing he could work on and never giving up. As you see the characters grow and the circus grow in the theater and how after a long time it ended up in a tent which is how people of today would mostly know the circus.
This film really inspired me and told me not to give up on my dreams no matter what obstacles get in my way and to always take every negative in my stride and to take a look at what I can do to make this a positive. I would highly recommend this film to everyone with an amazing cast, soundtrack and acting that really will inspire you.

I rate this film a 5/5 as I couldn't fault this at all and I am already desperate to see it again!

My Review:
Wanting a nice easy film to watch I thought I would watch Shrek which is a film in which I grew up with and I am able to quote pretty much word for word. I find that this film always makes me happy and it just relaxes me to watch which is something in which I was really looking for when I decided to put this on.

Personally I love this film, this humour in it is brilliant for both adults and children which does make this an easy film to watch with the whole family. Not only this but by having it with fairytales in which people grew up with as some of the characters and making the traditional style into their own it is e…

My Review:
Having been interested in this movie for a while and it really catching my eye lately especially with it being on Netflix I couldn't resist but to give this a watch. This is something in which I had better expectations for than it gave me and seemed a rather forgettable movie even though it wasn't a bad watch.

I liked that The Girl With All The Gifts started with showing how the children were taught and kept in separate rooms however made the audience wonder why they were kept that way when they seemed like normal children. Later discovering that they were zombies and that there was a zombie break all over the world through the cause…

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AI2MbS-e_us

My Review:
Wanting something different to watch I thought I would check out Escape Room which is available to watch on Netflix.

This movie was good in that it did provide mystery and I did enjoy how the puzzles within the Escape Room were laid out and that every room had something in which they had to figure out and it was not just one room. I also enjoyed seeing how the people actually interacted with each other and why they seemed so hostile with certain characters. By also starting the movie with seeing someone having to choose a lock it came across very much like the movie "Saw" which does feel very much the same all the way through the movie. With also having the movi…
