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

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 b

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 stude

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjGkB_oWTe0 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 w
