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 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:
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:
Having spent a lot of my teenage years watching She's The Man I thought I would give it a watch as I hadn't seen it in a while and loved this film all over again. I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained.

Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the boy's team showed h…
