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

My Review:
Being a movie I discovered years ago and completely fell in love with to the point it is one of my favourite movies of all time, I was excited to see that they had finally put this on Netflix so that others could discover it and love it as much as myself. As a result I thought I would re-watch Snowpiercer and give it a review which is fun for me as it is a film in which I really enjoy and feel is very underrated.

I love how this film begins by showing you how the passengers who are on the train that goes around the world are the only survivors of the human race. By doing this it shows how key the train …

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 liked the foreshadowing at the beginning of the movie which matched up to the ending very well and shows how throughout the movie that this was coming up. I also liked how the film showed how the student was getting close to…

My Review:
Having been unwell for the last week I thought I would cheer myself up by watching Nanny McPhee, this is a film which was a big part of my childhood and never fails to make me happy.

I think that by showing how bad the children are at the start of the film is key for this movie but also getting to understand that they are only being bad in order to get their father's attention as they don't get any now that their mother has died. By having Nanny McPhee as someone who understands this but helps to teach the children how to be polite, go to bed when they are asked and more some without her intentions she really helps to change the children and make them into a happy family. I also th…
