My Review:
Having looked in the store Cex for some movies I saw this film and was grabbed by the cover, so without reading the back of the box I decided to buy it, bring it home and give it a watch!

The film is about three people who are chosen by the crow of a shaman to go to a land that is promised to have food for them as the animals have disappeared and their people are dying. However, when the shaman turns evil and tries to kill the three young warriors will they be able to help their community or will they lose?

I found that this film was a good watch and kept my interest all the way through which I was glad about and didn't find that the film was as long as what it was which was another bonus. With a good story line about survival and how one of the three was starting to become a shaman himself however not realising his powers was a great extra for the audience seeing the character grow within himself and who he was always meant to be. As the audience was also able to see what was still happening in their village as well and seeing what the evil shaman was doing and planning made the film make sense and understand what they were travelling for and what was happening to the people who stayed behind.

I can't really fault the movie, I just thought it was good and rather a forgettable movie which did not make me go wow afterwards. This would be brilliant for children however and those who like animation films that are not meant to be humorous like most children's movies are.

My Rating: 3/5

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…

About: Four best friends test their intelligence when an escape room they participate in takes a dark and twisted turn.
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AI2MbS-e_us

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…
