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

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…

About: Four best friends test their intelligence when an escape room they participate in takes a dark and twisted turn.
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…
