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:
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 not seen The Haunted Mansion in a while and been badly wanting to watch it for months I decided to watch this with my mum. As a favourite of mine when I was younger and still really enjoying it as an adult. This film makes me laugh as well as keeps me entertained throughout.

I love that this film is about a an who is stuck as a ghost due to killing himself and not really understanding the truth about how the love of his life died. I think by having the woman in the film look like her which is why she is brought to the mansion rather sweet and does make the water wonder with…

My Review:
Having been an X-Men fan for most of my life I was excited to see that Dark Phoenix was coming out and decided to go to the cinema to see it on the first opportunity that I had. Although this is a decent watch this is nothing like what I expected it to be and it really let me down.

I thought that this movie was good in showing how Phoenix had dangerous powers and that Jean had no control over them which led to her hurting the ones that she loved. Realising this she did try to get help from anyone who she thought would be able to help her which I thought was nice to …
