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:
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…
