My Review:
Having never seen any of the Jurassic movies before I thought that I would start with Jurassic World. I was really surprised by this film and just how much I ended up enjoying it.

Jurassic World is about a genetically designed dinosaur and decides to go killing all the dinosaurs and people within the island. However, when they are not able to capture the dinosaur easily will they be able to capture it or destroy it before it destroys the island.

I loved that from the very beginning of the movie it was all set for what was going to be happening throughout the film due to seeing the dinosaur and how it was dangerous while still confined within it's cage. I thought by also making the audience wonder what the dinosaur was genetically formed with was a good mystery that was left till near the very end of the movie and kept it fresh and kept the dinosaur feeling more dangerous than it would have been otherwise. With action from nearly the very start of the film I enjoyed as it kept my attention and made me feel that the film was going at a brilliant speed which always made me wonder what was going to be happening next. Finally, my favourite thing about Jurassic World was that it showed how even though different dinosaurs were enemies if it comes to a dinosaur which is too powerful for the planet and threatens others existence then they will come together to bring down the dinosaur and showed a coming together of the different species.

I found that this film was really enjoyable and one that I will definitely be watching again and can't wait to see more from the Jurassic series of movies. I would recommend this film to those who like dinosaurs and want a lot of action.

My Rating: 5/5

My Review:
Being a movie I discovered years ago and completely fell in love with to the point it is one of my favourite movies of all time, I was excited to see that they had finally put this on Netflix so that others could discover it and love it as much as myself. As a result I thought I would re-watch Snowpiercer and give it a review which is fun for me as it is a film in which I really enjoy and feel is very underrated.

I love how this film begins by showing you how the passengers who are on the train that goes around the world are the only survivors of the human race. By doing this it shows how key the train …

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…

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle (film review)

Film: Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle
Year: 2017
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy
Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart, Jack Black
About: Four teenagers are sucked into a magical video game, and the only way they can escape is to work together to finish the game.

My Review: As someone who grew up watching the Jumanji film with Robin Williams I was worried about the new film and if this would ruin the film that I grew up loving. I was gladly proven wrong! This film is based after Jumanji and is through a video game which is more with the times rather than board games, not only this but it is based around two people who are more nerds/geeks (one male and one female) and two of the popular group (one male and one female). As you see them coming to terms with their new characters and making it so that the popular ones are the more weak characters who aren't as popular and vice versa it made the film something for everyone. The casting for this film was amazing and having such amaz…
