My Review:
Wanting to see an animation movie I had previously not seen before I decided to have a look on Netflix and came across the film Spark so decided to give it a watch and see if it was any good.

The film is about a teenage monkey called Spark who decides to go on a mission after having been annoyed that he is always left at home, however ends up in the kingdom on the planet of Bana. Finding out that the evil Zhong wants to destroy another planet Spark along with his friends Chunk and Vix they try to stop the evil plans.

This film surprised me being better than I expected however not a perfect children's movie. This film did make me laugh and did answer a lot of questions like why they live on a shard of trash and why his friends are not letting him go on adventures with them even though he is still only a teenager. I did think that the very simplistic storyline thoughout the movie was good as well as it made it really easy to watch before bed and the watcher doesn't need to put a lot of thought into what they are watching. This film did also make me laugh at points which was god but I feel the movie could have done more within it to engage the audience a little more than it did.

I would recommend this movie for families and children who are looking for an adventure story and one that is very easy to follow.

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 …
