My Review:
Having a look on Netflix for a movie to watch I came across Origin Wars which was named The Osiris Child everywhere else online! Liking the actor Kellan Lutz I couldn't resist giving this a watch.

The film is about a man who is from off-world and is told that they are going to destroy the planet in twenty-four hours goes down to the surface to find his daughter who is in the city. Along the way he meets a man called Sy and with his help and the help of two others he tries to save his daughter from the end of the world. However, after finding out about the creatures in which are also on the surface he must be overly careful!

I found myself really enjoying this movie, with great  acting throughout it and put into parts so when it does go to the jail scenes and the past of Sy it makes sense with the movie as well as the present time of the story that the watcher is seeing. I thought that the creatures of the movie did look like real life Golem's from Pokemon though which I couldn't stop seeing after I had first noticed it, however this only made me want to watch it so much more, also showing how the creatures came about and how they are created was something that I was glad that the movie had showed as it answered a lot of questions as well as scaring the watcher. I thought this film was also good at showing the backstory of the characters so that the watcher could connect to them better and it worked as the watcher could really feel for Sy once we had found out more about his character, why he was put into prison and why his character behaves as he does. The ending of this movie also surprised me not as I couldn't see it coming but as how it was played out which was a really nice thing to see and made me want a second movie or at least to watch the movie again.

As an independent movie from Australia I could not recommend this film more highly, it has a lot of aspects from other films however it is a movie which from the beginning to the very end had me engaged and wanting to know what was going to happen next. I would recommend this movie to those who are fans of sci-fi movies and wanting an action movie as well.

My Rating: 5/5

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…

My Review:
Having been unwell for the last week I thought I would cheer myself up by watching Nanny McPhee, this is a film which was a big part of my childhood and never fails to make me happy.

I think that by showing how bad the children are at the start of the film is key for this movie but also getting to understand that they are only being bad in order to get their father's attention as they don't get any now that their mother has died. By having Nanny McPhee as someone who understands this but helps to teach the children how to be polite, go to bed when they are asked and more some without her intentions she really helps to change the children and make them into a happy family. I also th…
