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

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
