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

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8lDreq9le4 My Review: Wanting to watch a rom-com and having this on my Watch List on Netflix I couldn't resist but give this film a chance and see what I thought. Having liked Emma Roberts in everything I had seen her in previously as well I was excited to see if this was another film of hers in which I would enjoy. This film surprised me however I ended up enjoying this more than I expected. I liked that this film had a Romeo and Juliet vibe with the families not liking each other however the children both being in love with each other and feeling that their families were the reason in which they couldn't be together. I also thought it was clever having the gr

Adoring the first film and having watched it a few days prior I was excited to see what happens in the second movie and if it would live up to first movie. I love that  Ralph Breaks The Internet continues on from the first movie really well and tells us that it has been six years that the main characters have been friends for and how Vanellope is starting to get bored of her game and wants more excitement in her life. By also showing how Wi-fi became a part of the a
