My Review:
With the Death Cure coming out to DVD I couldn't resist but to watch the full trilogy from the beginning, starting with the first movie in the trilogy The Maze Runner.

The film is about a boy called Thomas who after brought into the glade is trying to help the boys escape and get out of the maze he has realised that they are in. Not only this but it shows the friendships as well as difficulties that the boys have had while in the glade and the monsters in the maze who are trying to stop them from escaping.

The Maze Runner is a film in which I personally really like and think it is a great movie for teenagers as well as a good film adaptation of a book although different I feel it works really well. Not only this but I feel that it has the right amount of action while also making you feel for the characters in the movie and feel a part of the film itself. I did also like that the end of the film makes you wonder what is next for the people who managed to survive through the maze and the people who manage to get them out of the building in which the teenagers were being kept. This does make me want to watch the other movies and get me excited about what the film adaptations of the films will bring next.

I would recommend The Maze Runner to teenagers who are looking for an action movie to watch and looking for something with an easy to follow story line. I would also recommend this movie to people who are wanting something that is part of a series and want something new to watch that is like The Hunger Games.

My Rating: 4/5

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4F3Sn-Xzzo My Review: Wanting a style of film I don't usually watch but do enjoy I decided to watch the stalker movie that is My Teacher, My Obsession  which is based on an English teacher who starts at a new school. However, when one of the students gets obsessed with him she will do anything to be with him including secluding him from everyone else. I liked the foreshadowing at the beginning of the movie which matched up to the ending very well and shows how throughout the movie that this was coming up. I also liked how the film showed how the stude

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

Brave (film review)

Film: Brave Year: 2012 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Mark Andrews, Brenda Chapman Starring: Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson About:  Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CKcqIahedc My Review: Having not seen Brave in years I thought it would be a perfect movie to watch which would make me feel proud as a Scottish person while watching an animation movie. I really like that this movie has clans which is something that is a huge part of Scotland's past and by having really common Scottish names it gave it more of a Scottish feel to the movie. Having a lead character in which doesn't want to be married off and wants to be her own person I think is a really key thing for people to watch and for children to know that it is okay t
