Unsane (fiilm review)

Film: Unsane
Year: 2018
Genre: Horror, Thriller
Starring: Claire Foy, Joshua Leonard, Jay Pharoah
About: A young woman is involuntarily committed to a mental institution, where she is confronted by her greatest fear--but is it real or a product of her delusion?

My Review:
Having seen the trailer for this on the tv and it grabbing my interest I decided to go to the cinema to see if this film was as good as the trailer had made out for it to be. So here is my views of it while seeing it on the big screen.

This film is about a girl who goes to see a counselor to talk about her previous stalker and how she still sees him everywhere, after this while doing some paperwork she accidentally accepts to be admitted into a mental institution where it so happens that her stalker is now working. As she tries to come to terms with him being there she is also trying her hardest to get out so she can get away from him.

I thought this film was rather boring in honesty with the introduction being far too long and slow to get into the film. Not only this but it just seemed to not do much even while she was in the institution itself till the second half of the movie, when there starts to be more action and things happening to the main character involving her stalker and when you see how far he is willing to go to have her all to himself. As well as this I feel some of the camera angles which were used were not used properly and just didn't make the film look all that professional, which isn't surprising when I found out later that night that this film was filmed on an iphone!

I did like however, like the ending of the movie which showed how far he was willing to go to be with her. As well as this there was more scenes of violence with having a patient OD and killed. Also the fact that they decided to show that a reporter was trying to prove that the facility was locking up sane people as well so that they could get insurance money and got found out I thought was a great fit to the movie itself which fitted into the movie well.

I would have kept Unsane as a TV movie however as I feel that it doesn't fit in the cinema and is not something which has benefited in doing so. I would recommend this movie to those who are looking for a movie about stalkers and insane asylums.

My Rating: 2/5

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

Brave (film review)

Film: Brave Year: 2012 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Mark Andrews, Brenda Chapman Starring: Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson About:  Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CKcqIahedc My Review: Having not seen Brave in years I thought it would be a perfect movie to watch which would make me feel proud as a Scottish person while watching an animation movie. I really like that this movie has clans which is something that is a huge part of Scotland's past and by having really common Scottish names it gave it more of a Scottish feel to the movie. Having a lead character in which doesn't want to be married off and wants to be her own person I think is a really key thing for people to watch and for children to know that it is okay t
