To All The Boys I've Loved Before (film review)



Film: To All The Boys I've Loved Before
Year: 2018

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTLc_RzqaJc

My Review:
Having not read the book for this but having seen a lot of people talk about it I decided to give it a watch and was really glad I did.

This film is about a girl who writes love letters to the five boys in which she has ever loved and when they get out she makes an agreement with one of the boys to fake being in a relationship so that her best friend doesn't look too much into his letter. However, when she starts to develop feelings for the fake boyfriend will she have her happily ever after.

I thought that this film was brilliant and that with the main character having been a bookworm and someone that was shy that she was rather relateable to me and how she views love and why she doesn't tell them how she feels. This film had great acting though out and although it was highly predictable I was glad it was as it still made me smile and super happy all the way though the movie. I believe that this film is one that deserves the hype in which it has currently got and is a movie in which I hope becomes one that gets remembered. With some of the situations in which the fake couple get into I thought it was good to show a more real side to the relationship and how love can happen in the most bizarre ways but is worth a chance. The ending of this movie where another of the boys from her letters end at her door makes me really hope that there is a second movie involving him as I would love to see how it continues on.

As a result of this film I am definitely going to be giving the book a read. I would highly recommend this movie for those looking for a romance film and for teenagers as this is one that needs to be seen. I will definitely be giving this film another watch and I am really glad that Netflix made this movie.

My Rating: 5/5

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-X5WnMzOvA

My Review:
Having had my eye on this film for a while I was la when Netflix brought it on the service and I could finally see this especially with it having Dwayne Johnson and Vince Vaughn in it. Being also asked to review this film I thought it would be a good opportunity to do both of these at the same time. This is a film I never noticed was a biography movie before seeing it and I thought was good for showing more about the wrestler Paige.

I enjoyed how this film showed how a girl from England first got into wrestling and how it was her dream to be in the WWE and got given the opportunity. By also showing how she goes throu…

About: The dramatic story of the cutthroat race between electricity titans Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse to determine whose electrical system would power the modern world
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kue18AxK1tU

My Review:
Having wanted to see The Current War since it was in the cinema after seeing how it had an incredible cast of actors in which I already like I knew I had to see it once it came onto DVD. Not only this but not knowing much about the electricity feud this was a subject in which I found myself really interested in which made me enjoy this film a lot more than I had expected.

I thought that it was good how it showed the rivalry between both Edison and Westinghouse and how Edison was willing to tarnish his name in order to get ahead and even go against his own beliefs in order to try and win the…

Starring: Vince Vaughn, Paul Giamatti, Elizabeth Banks
About: Fred Claus, Santa's bitter older brother, is forced to move to the North Pole to help Santa and the elves prepare for Christmas in exchange for cash.
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VzXjtxZaGS8

My Review:
Over the Christmas period I decided to watch some films that I hadn't previously seen before and one of those being Fred Claus I thought that this was different to other Christmas movies as it focus' on Santa's brother rather than on Santa himself but also on how to keep Christmas alive and not have it closed down. By having Vince Vaughn as the main character in this I had good expectations for this movie as I generally enjoy everything in which I have seen him in.

I thought that Fred Claus was good in how it showed how Nicholas became a saint and how he is able to be Santa with the family not being able to age as a resul…
