My Review:
Having had this on my to watch list on Netflix for a while I thought it was time to give this a watch. Knowing that this had subtitles as well did delay me for a while on watching it due to not being a huge fan of subtitled movies. This was also called Our Lovers, on Netflix for those who look for it.

The movie is about a girl who approaches a man in a bar and they start speaking and decide to play a game like when they were younger and there is only rules of not getting to know each other personally and that there is to be no names between them and no phone numbers or internet to know more about each other. While also not allowing to fall in love with each other.

I found that this film was rather cute to watch and I liked that they made it so they were not allowed to know much about each other so that it was like the time before the internet and an older age. This movie also had really good settings and I found myself liking where they decided to shoot this movie on more than one occasion so I could personally go there! This movie also had a good way of showing how they were both getting over someone from her with her ex-boyfriend who just split up with her prior to the main characters meeting and him having just taken space from his wife. However, as the audience discover more about the characters and how they are all connected it is a really cute movie where you end up routing for the two main characters of this film to get together and not go back to their other halves in which they are both still getting over. Another thing I really liked about this movie was that there was a moment when the man finds out that his writing partner and best friend got seduced by his wife and he realises that she would do it again as she done it before he even left and before he fond out that she had someone else on the side which was why he was to move out. Showing that even though he was undecided what to do between going back to his wife and the new girl he started to fall for he deserved a lot better than his wife and leaves her.

On the other hand however, there was a lot of dialogue which made the subtitles get faster than I could read them all which did make me a little disappointed and made me miss watching the film more than read the subtitles so I would know what was happening which did make me mark this down. However, I think if this movie was dubbed instead of me having to read the subtitles all the way through the movie I would have liked the movie a lot more. I personally also didn't like how unreal this movie seemed with having the meetings done just randomly with only a time and a place to meet as it seemed like something that would just never happen.

Overall, I liked this movie and thought that it was rather cute and put a slightly different twist on the romance movies which is already out there which was enjoyable. I would recommend this movie to those who don't mind a lot of subtitles or can speak Spanish as well as those who like romance movies and want one with a slight twist on the usual foundation.

My Rating: 3/5

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…

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:
Having spent a lot of my teenage years watching She's The Man I thought I would give it a watch as I hadn't seen it in a while and loved this film all over again. I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained.

Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the boy's team showed h…
