Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ha1ktlnuio

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=I-X5WnMzOvA

My Review:
Having had my eye on this film for a while I was la when Netflix brought it on the service and I could finally see this especially with it having Dwayne Johnson and Vince Vaughn in it. Being also asked to review this film I thought it would be a good opportunity to do both of these at the same time. This is a film I never noticed was a biography movie before seeing it and I thought was good for showing more about the wrestler Paige.

I enjoyed how this film showed how a girl from England first got into wrestling and how it was her dream to be in the WWE and got given the opportunity. By also showing how she goes throu…

About: The dramatic story of the cutthroat race between electricity titans Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse to determine whose electrical system would power the modern world
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kue18AxK1tU

My Review:
Having wanted to see The Current War since it was in the cinema after seeing how it had an incredible cast of actors in which I already like I knew I had to see it once it came onto DVD. Not only this but not knowing much about the electricity feud this was a subject in which I found myself really interested in which made me enjoy this film a lot more than I had expected.

I thought that it was good how it showed the rivalry between both Edison and Westinghouse and how Edison was willing to tarnish his name in order to get ahead and even go against his own beliefs in order to try and win the…

Directed By: David Dobkin
Starring: Vince Vaughn, Paul Giamatti, Elizabeth Banks
About: Fred Claus, Santa's bitter older brother, is forced to move to the North Pole to help Santa and the elves prepare for Christmas in exchange for cash.
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VzXjtxZaGS8

My Review:
Over the Christmas period I decided to watch some films that I hadn't previously seen before and one of those being Fred Claus I thought that this was different to other Christmas movies as it focus' on Santa's brother rather than on Santa himself but also on how to keep Christmas alive and not have it closed down. By having Vince Vaughn as the main character in this I had good expectations for this movie as I generally enjoy everything in which I have seen him in.

I thought that Fred Claus was good in how it showed how Nicholas became a saint and how he is able to be Santa with the family not being able to age as a resul…
