About: One man, one woman, one rule: not fall in love
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSaeOL7nc2Q

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 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…

About: Four best friends test their intelligence when an escape room they participate in takes a dark and twisted turn.
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…
