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

Sahara (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: Sahara Year: 2017 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Pierre Core Starring: Omar Sy, Louane Emera, Franck Gastambide About:  A young cobra and his scorpion best friend go on a journey across the Sahara desert to save a new-found love Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3IRkT9JsqM My Review: Having a movie day I came across Sahara when on Netflix and having no expectations about this film and also not knowing what it was about I thought that it would be the perfect film to blog about. I did think that this was a cute adventure movie but would be better suited to a younger audience than myself. I found that this film was really sweet that the snake wanted to go across the desert in order to find a snake in which he found he felt a connection with even though they were different kinds and also from different worlds. I also thought by having the girls brother being a drug addict and struggling with wanting more drugs and wanting to leave his sister w

Brave (film review)

Film: Brave Year: 2012 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Mark Andrews, Brenda Chapman Starring: Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson About:  Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CKcqIahedc My Review: Having not seen Brave in years I thought it would be a perfect movie to watch which would make me feel proud as a Scottish person while watching an animation movie. I really like that this movie has clans which is something that is a huge part of Scotland's past and by having really common Scottish names it gave it more of a Scottish feel to the movie. Having a lead character in which doesn't want to be married off and wants to be her own person I think is a really key thing for people to watch and for children to know that it is okay t
