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

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8lDreq9le4 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 gr

Adoring the first film and having watched it a few days prior I was excited to see what happens in the second movie and if it would live up to first movie. I love that  Ralph Breaks The Internet continues on from the first movie really well and tells us that it has been six years that the main characters have been friends for and how Vanellope is starting to get bored of her game and wants more excitement in her life. By also showing how Wi-fi became a part of the a
