My Review:
With my mum having chosen the movie for tonight she found this hidden gem on Netflix which fully surprised me and exceeded my expectations.

The film is about a girl who works at the local stables and after finding a black horse in a field gets on it's back and is taken to the land of Albion. This leads to her trying to find four of the world's greatest treasures and trying to bring peace to the land again through the help of new friends and a black stallion.

This film made me laugh throughout and the acting was great along with it making it a really good movie to see. I also liked that Albion seemed to be Irish which made it different from a lot of movies which are based in America or planets which everyone sounds American which gets predictable. With a character for everyone to like as well such as the girl who just wants to go home, the feisty red head who just wants to save her world and her people, the protector of the one of the artifacts who seems dim but just makes him rather hilarious to watch as well as having the evil side of the story. With characters who will make you laugh and feel for them it is a great family movie which I would recommend for everyone to watch.

I would recommend this movie to those who are looking for a movie with a different world, a comedy film as well as having a good adventure throughout it. I wish I was told about this movie before and can't wait to watch it again. Great casting!

My Rating: 4/5

Sahara (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: Sahara Year: 2017 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Pierre Core Starring: Omar Sy, Louane Emera, Franck Gastambide About:  A young cobra and his scorpion best friend go on a journey across the Sahara desert to save a new-found love Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3IRkT9JsqM My Review: Having a movie day I came across Sahara when on Netflix and having no expectations about this film and also not knowing what it was about I thought that it would be the perfect film to blog about. I did think that this was a cute adventure movie but would be better suited to a younger audience than myself. I found that this film was really sweet that the snake wanted to go across the desert in order to find a snake in which he found he felt a connection with even though they were different kinds and also from different worlds. I also thought by having the girls brother being a drug addict and struggling with wanting more drugs and wanting to leave his sister w

A Kid Like Jake (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: A Kid Like Jake Year: 2018 Genre: Drama, Family Directed By: Silas Howard Starring: Claire Danes, Jim Parsons, Octavia Spencer About:  Loving parents of a four-year-old must come to terms with their child being transgender. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yR-5Rme7sQ8 My Review: With it being Pride month and having this movie on my To Watch list on Netflix I thought that this would be the perfect time to give this movie a watch. I wasn't sure what to expect with this movie and although it surprised me and I liked it more than I expected there is more in which I wish that they did with this film. I personally liked how A Kid Like Jake focused on the parents and how they both came to terms with how their son liked to dress as a girl and how it could be possibly more than that and that he could possibly be transgender. I liked this as it showed how the father was more accepting even though he didn't feel great about it and how the mother was in denial
