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:
Wanting a nice easy film to watch I thought I would watch Shrek which is a film in which I grew up with and I am able to quote pretty much word for word. I find that this film always makes me happy and it just relaxes me to watch which is something in which I was really looking for when I decided to put this on.

Personally I love this film, this humour in it is brilliant for both adults and children which does make this an easy film to watch with the whole family. Not only this but by having it with fairytales in which people grew up with as some of the characters and making the traditional style into their own it is e…

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 something different to watch I thought I would check out Escape Room which is available to watch on Netflix.

This movie was good in that it did provide mystery and I did enjoy how the puzzles within the Escape Room were laid out and that every room had something in which they had to figure out and it was not just one room. I also enjoyed seeing how the people actually interacted with each other and why they seemed so hostile with certain characters. By also starting the movie with seeing someone having to choose a lock it came across very much like the movie "Saw" which does feel very much the same all the way through the movie. With also having the movi…
