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

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 …
