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:
Having had my eye on this film for a while I was la when Netflix brought it on the service and I could finally see this especially with it having Dwayne Johnson and Vince Vaughn in it. Being also asked to review this film I thought it would be a good opportunity to do both of these at the same time. This is a film I never noticed was a biography movie before seeing it and I thought was good for showing more about the wrestler Paige.

I enjoyed how this film showed how a girl from England first got into wrestling and how it was her dream to be in the WWE and got given the opportunity. By also showing how she goes throu…

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VzXjtxZaGS8

My Review:
Over the Christmas period I decided to watch some films that I hadn't previously seen before and one of those being Fred Claus I thought that this was different to other Christmas movies as it focus' on Santa's brother rather than on Santa himself but also on how to keep Christmas alive and not have it closed down. By having Vince Vaughn as the main character in this I had good expectations for this movie as I generally enjoy everything in which I have seen him in.

I thought that Fred Claus was good in how it showed how Nicholas became a saint and how he is able to be Santa with the family not being able to age as a resul…

My Review:
Wanting to start watching Christmas movies with it being the middle of December I thought I would start with a movie in which was on Netflix which has been on my list recently called Elliot The Littlest Reindeer. With a cast of voice actors in which I already liked I hoped that this would be something I would enjoy and I am glad I was not mistaken as the movie ended up being rather cute and something I enjoyed more than I expected.

I thought by showing how Santa's reindeer was able to retire and have other reindeer take their place was rather a good concept especially as it showed how…
