My Review:
Continuing on with watching the Maze Runner trilogy the second film was something I couldn't help but to review.

The Scorch Trials is about the teenagers who survived the Maze trials and find out that they were not saved at all but brought into another part of Wicked who are draining children of their blood! As the children escape to find the safe haven called The Right Arm and facing cranks who are infected by the flare will the children survive?

This is my favourite film throughout the Maze Runner trilogy of films, it is very different from the books however so if you have read the books I would maybe suggest not watching the film unless you are okay with it being really different. This is however a great movie in which has a lot of action and the watcher is able to see more of the characters who survived the maze and more of their personalities come through. Not only this but the watcher is able to learn more about why WICKED is wanting the blood of the children and that Eva Page is not dead after all and is still conducting tests on the children. Throughout this film the watcher is also able to see more about the cranks and learn who they are and how the sun and the flare has changed the world that people are living in and how it can effect people.

Overall, I would recommend this film to those who are looking for a film with action while still being suitable for a teenage audience and someone wanting to watch a series of films or able to watch a film by itself even though it is part of a series.

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.

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

A Kid Like Jake (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: A Kid Like Jake Year: 2018 Genre: Drama, Family Directed By: Silas Howard Starring: Claire Danes, Jim Parsons, Octavia Spencer About:  Loving parents of a four-year-old must come to terms with their child being transgender. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yR-5Rme7sQ8 My Review: With it being Pride month and having this movie on my To Watch list on Netflix I thought that this would be the perfect time to give this movie a watch. I wasn't sure what to expect with this movie and although it surprised me and I liked it more than I expected there is more in which I wish that they did with this film. I personally liked how A Kid Like Jake focused on the parents and how they both came to terms with how their son liked to dress as a girl and how it could be possibly more than that and that he could possibly be transgender. I liked this as it showed how the father was more accepting even though he didn't feel great about it and how the mother was in denial
