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

My Review:
Being a movie I discovered years ago and completely fell in love with to the point it is one of my favourite movies of all time, I was excited to see that they had finally put this on Netflix so that others could discover it and love it as much as myself. As a result I thought I would re-watch Snowpiercer and give it a review which is fun for me as it is a film in which I really enjoy and feel is very underrated.

I love how this film begins by showing you how the passengers who are on the train that goes around the world are the only survivors of the human race. By doing this it shows how key the train …

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 student was getting close to…

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle (film review)

Film: Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle
Year: 2017
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy
Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart, Jack Black
About: Four teenagers are sucked into a magical video game, and the only way they can escape is to work together to finish the game.

My Review: As someone who grew up watching the Jumanji film with Robin Williams I was worried about the new film and if this would ruin the film that I grew up loving. I was gladly proven wrong! This film is based after Jumanji and is through a video game which is more with the times rather than board games, not only this but it is based around two people who are more nerds/geeks (one male and one female) and two of the popular group (one male and one female). As you see them coming to terms with their new characters and making it so that the popular ones are the more weak characters who aren't as popular and vice versa it made the film something for everyone. The casting for this film was amazing and having such amaz…
