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:
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…
