My Review:
Wanting to watch a Marvel movie I couldn't resist but decide to watch Captain America: Civil War which I have not seen since it was in the cinema back in 2016. This is my views on the movie.

The film is about when the government want to own the Avengers, Captain America and some of the other Avengers refuse to do so. However, when at a United Nations meeting there is an explosion and Bucky Barnes is accused of causing it Captain America and his friends will do anything to stop Iron Man.

This film is action from the very start and this makes me really like the film and be drawn into it almost instantly. Not only this but by causing a drift between two of the characters; Captain America and Iron Man it makes the fans need to choose who's side they are on and show more of a political edge to the Marvel Universe which hasn't happened previously. Also by adding in new characters such as Spiderman and Black Panther the fans are excited to see what happens next for both of these characters and want to see more of them making this film far more exciting.

This film is one that Marvel fans should not miss as it includes most of the characters within the MCU while also adding new ones which leads to the Black Panther and Spiderman solo movies. This is a film in which is my favourite within the Captain America franchise and with it ending with still Tony Stark and Steve Rodgers not on talking terms it leaves the watcher wondering what is going to happen next.

I would highly recommend this movie to fans of Marvel and to those who are wanting to see a film with a lot of action.

My Rating: 4/5

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…

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…
