My Review:
Having seen that Netflix brought out a new comedy movie this week I thought I would give it a watch and it actually surprised me with how good it was.

The movie is about a group of teenagers who decide to go camping and one of their friends ends up cutting his dick off and it is up to his friends to deliver it to the hospital before he ends up in surgery and losing it forever.

I liked this film and it did make me laugh thoughout as it had the same style of humour as which is in American Pie. I also thought that having the teenagers rather useless and the situations in which they end up in over trying to get the dick back for their friend was brilliant and brought up all situations both real and not but it brought the film together really well. The love story between the man's sister who has his dick cut off and the main character was also a really good way of showing teen romance and how it seems the world is against you and how being scared can ruin your chances with someone very easily. The Package was one of the best comedies I feel Netflix have brought out in a while and I am glad I had decided to watch this.

However, I did find that this movie was a bit cheesy and cringy at times and some of the jokes were rather cheap which did rather ruin the film a little but not enough for me to be annoyed at and not watch.

This film would be brilliant for those who are fans of American Pie and are looking for a teenage comedy movie. I was really surprised by this movie and will definitely be watching this again.
My Rating: 4/5

Sahara (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: Sahara Year: 2017 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Pierre Core Starring: Omar Sy, Louane Emera, Franck Gastambide About:  A young cobra and his scorpion best friend go on a journey across the Sahara desert to save a new-found love Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3IRkT9JsqM My Review: Having a movie day I came across Sahara when on Netflix and having no expectations about this film and also not knowing what it was about I thought that it would be the perfect film to blog about. I did think that this was a cute adventure movie but would be better suited to a younger audience than myself. I found that this film was really sweet that the snake wanted to go across the desert in order to find a snake in which he found he felt a connection with even though they were different kinds and also from different worlds. I also thought by having the girls brother being a drug addict and struggling with wanting more drugs and wanting to leave his sister w

Brave (film review)

Film: Brave Year: 2012 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Mark Andrews, Brenda Chapman Starring: Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson About:  Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CKcqIahedc My Review: Having not seen Brave in years I thought it would be a perfect movie to watch which would make me feel proud as a Scottish person while watching an animation movie. I really like that this movie has clans which is something that is a huge part of Scotland's past and by having really common Scottish names it gave it more of a Scottish feel to the movie. Having a lead character in which doesn't want to be married off and wants to be her own person I think is a really key thing for people to watch and for children to know that it is okay t
