My Review:
Having seen Marvel bring out another movie to the MCU I just needed to see this film and got around to seeing it at the weekend. Although hearing a lot of mixed reactions I did like this film wasn't really impressed with it either.

The movie is about how Scott is under house arrest and has a dream about Hope's mother and them trying to bring her back from the quantum realm however there is a woman called Eva who is able to phase and want's the power that Hope's mother would have in order to get her life back to normal.

I thought that this film was humorous and it did make me laugh and I though that seeing how Hope and Scott still have feelings for each other was rather cute. I liked how the police kept trying to catch Scott away from his home as he is under house arrest however to no avail. With the acting still being good throughout I did find that this did make me enjoy the movie. I also thought that as they were looking for Hope's mother this was a good edition to the movie and I hope that in the future they use more of her character as she was able to be saved and did have powers which did come from the quantum realm. Alongside this having Hank made his lab small and using small cars as well as being able to make a small home was a great way of being able to take their work everywhere and make it harder for the villain to be able to get their hands on their work.

I did find however, that I was confused why Ava's character was in this movie as she did not really add much to the movie in terms of being a villain also the plot didn't really seem to go into depth making the audience question why this film was really made as it had no effect on anything else going on in the MCU or much on the film overall.

Overall, I liked this movie but thought that it needed more depth into it and a better understanding to the movie. I would recommend this movie to those who like the MCU and are wanting more of a comedic superhero movie. I would also recommend this movie to those who are wanting something really easy to follow.

My Rating: 4/5

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…

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…
