My Review: 
Being a Monty Python fan for years I couldn't resist but watch my favourite thing of Monty Python's and that is Monty Python and the Holy Grail which was released in 1975.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail is about King Arthur and his search for the Holy Grail with the search and help of his knights of the round table.

This in my opinion is one of the funniest films ever made and one that is a classic for a reason as it is not a forgettable movie. With the knights that say ni, coconuts to make the sound of horse hooves and the black knight are just a few things from this movie which really makes it stand out. I also find that this film has a character for everyone to like which makes this film every single time you see it better than the last as you can notice things you never noticed before.

I did mark this only as a 4/5 however due to seeing it so many times I was able to quote it too well and saw all of the jokes coming so it didn't surprise me as it used to. However I do recommend everyone to see this movie at least once as you will not regret it! 

My Rating: 4/5

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 …
