My Review:
Having wanted to go and see the new Mission Impossible movie however having not seen the others in years I decided to watch the previous movies starting from the very beginning.

The film is about an American spy called Ethan who after his team gets killed ends up being tracked down by the main organisation of spies for being a mole. However, Ethan ends up trying to save the rest of the spies from having their identities acknowledged and find the real mole within the company.

I personally really like this film and find that the theme tune to me is the definition of a spy tune and will always be the one that goes straight to my head. The theme tune always makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside and like a little child which just makes me really happy. I also like that the film follows Ethan and how he deals with his crew getting murdered and how he comes to find out who the real person who is infiltrating the company really is and why they are doing it. I always find that this film makes me think it is older than the 90's but really still grabs my attention and makes me constantly want to see what happens next within the movie and how Ethan will actually find the real mole. I do like that you can see how the mission's are done as well and how much thought has went into making them more original than some other movies but stays true to the spy movie's which everyone loves.

I do sometimes however don't like the way that the camera angles have been done which rather distracts me and some of the acting seems to be a bit off for a scene or part of a film such as with over acting at some points. However, overall this doesn't bother me as it is an older film and without as much CGI as modern day it is to be expected.

Overall, a great film to a start of a very iconic series of films and one that lets the audience know more about Ethan and understand him as a person which is a great thing for the audience to see. I would definitely recommend this movie to those who like action films and are wanting a spy movie as this is one of the best films and series of spy movies in my opinion.

My Rating: 4/5

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 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:
Having spent a lot of my teenage years watching She's The Man I thought I would give it a watch as I hadn't seen it in a while and loved this film all over again. I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained.

Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the boy's team showed h…
