My Review:
Going back to the first movie I ever fell in love with however haven't seen in years I decided to put on A Bugs Life which came out in 1998 when I was only 2/3 years old! As a favourite of mine when I was younger I was scared to watch this again in-case it didn't live up to what I had remembered and loved.

A Bugs Life is about an ant called Flik who after getting rid of all the food the ants collected for the grasshoppers goes out to try and find some warriors to try and help defeat them. However, when he recruits circus bugs he needs to come up with a new idea to stand up to the grasshoppers.

This film is honestly amazing to myself, I am not sure wither it was because it was a childhood favourite but I couldn't stop smiling watching this and found myself feeling a lot younger as well. This film also makes me laugh with the humour in which has always made me laugh. One of my favourite things about this movie is that at the end of the movie they have a blooper reel even though it is an animation movie. This movie also makes it so that bugs are likable which is something I also like as it is not normally a living creature in which people respect showing that we should accept bugs and different people how we would expect to be treated. Not only this but the film shows that even though things might not always go as you planned and things can go badly for you if you keep trying then anything is possible! Which is a great message for children.

I highly recommend this film to children and those who want to re-watch a film from their childhood as this film is just as good as I remember.

My Rating: 5/5

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…

My Review:
Wanting to watch a rom-com and having this on my Watch List on Netflix I couldn't resist but give this film a chance and see what I thought. Having liked Emma Roberts in everything I had seen her in previously as well I was excited to see if this was another film of hers in which I would enjoy. This film surprised me however I ended up enjoying this more than I expected.

I liked that this film had a Romeo and Juliet vibe with the families not liking each other however the children both being in love with each other and feeling that their families were the reason in which they couldn't be together. I also thought it was clever having the grandparents also feelin…

My Review:
Having been an X-Men fan for most of my life I was excited to see that Dark Phoenix was coming out and decided to go to the cinema to see it on the first opportunity that I had. Although this is a decent watch this is nothing like what I expected it to be and it really let me down.

I thought that this movie was good in showing how Phoenix had dangerous powers and that Jean had no control over them which led to her hurting the ones that she loved. Realising this she did try to get help from anyone who she thought would be able to help her which I thought was nice to …
