Black Knight (film review)

Film: Black Knight
Year: 2001
Genre: Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy
Starring: Martin Lawrence, Marsha Thomason, Tom Wilkinson
About: Martin Lawrence plays Jamal, an employee in Medieval World amusement park. After sustaining a blow to the head, he awakens to find himself in 14th century England.

My Review:
Having wanted to watch a film that I saw as a child but hadn't managed to see in ages I saw that Black Knight was on Netflix and thought this was the perfect opportunity to see it again. This is my views on the film.

Black Knight is about a man who after falling into a river at his work wakes up in 14th century England not realising that he has done. After a while re realises he is not where he is meant to be and tries to find a way to get himself back home. However, at the same time there is an assassination sent after the king by people who are trying to get the queen in power.

I find this film funny and laughed pretty much throughout which I really liked about this film, I also thought the reactions to being sent back in time and to the 14th century were pretty much how it would be for anyone going back without knowing about it. Also with some action in terms of fight scenes I found this film really enjoyable to watch. Definitely a film that was as good as I remembered it from when I was younger.

I would recommend this film to families who are looking for something fun to watch as well as those who would like a comedy film. Also if you are looking for something easy to watch after a long day then this could be the film for you.

My Rating: 4/5

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4F3Sn-Xzzo My Review: Wanting a style of film I don't usually watch but do enjoy I decided to watch the stalker movie that is My Teacher, My Obsession  which is based on an English teacher who starts at a new school. However, when one of the students gets obsessed with him she will do anything to be with him including secluding him from everyone else.

I also liked how the film showed how the stude

Sahara (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: Sahara Year: 2017 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Pierre Core Starring: Omar Sy, Louane Emera, Franck Gastambide About:  A young cobra and his scorpion best friend go on a journey across the Sahara desert to save a new-found love Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3IRkT9JsqM My Review: Having a movie day I came across Sahara when on Netflix and having no expectations about this film and also not knowing what it was about I thought that it would be the perfect film to blog about. I did think that this was a cute adventure movie but would be better suited to a younger audience than myself. I found that this film was really sweet that the snake wanted to go across the desert in order to find a snake in which he found he felt a connection with even though they were different kinds and also from different worlds. I also thought by having the girls brother being a drug addict and struggling with wanting more drugs and wanting to leave his sister w

A Kid Like Jake (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: A Kid Like Jake Year: 2018 Genre: Drama, Family Directed By: Silas Howard Starring: Claire Danes, Jim Parsons, Octavia Spencer About:  Loving parents of a four-year-old must come to terms with their child being transgender. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yR-5Rme7sQ8 My Review: With it being Pride month and having this movie on my To Watch list on Netflix I thought that this would be the perfect time to give this movie a watch. I wasn't sure what to expect with this movie and although it surprised me and I liked it more than I expected there is more in which I wish that they did with this film. I personally liked how A Kid Like Jake focused on the parents and how they both came to terms with how their son liked to dress as a girl and how it could be possibly more than that and that he could possibly be transgender. I liked this as it showed how the father was more accepting even though he didn't feel great about it and how the mother was in denial
