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



Film: To All The Boys I've Loved Before

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

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…

My Review:
Wanting to watch a rom-com and having this on my Watch List on Netflix I couldn't resist but give this film a chance and see what I thought. Having liked Emma Roberts in everything I had seen her in previously as well I was excited to see if this was another film of hers in which I would enjoy. This film surprised me however I ended up enjoying this more than I expected.

I liked that this film had a Romeo and Juliet vibe with the families not liking each other however the children both being in love with each other and feeling that their families were the reason in which they couldn't be together. I also thought it was clever having the grandparents also feelin…

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-q8C_c-nlM

My Review:
Having been an X-Men fan for most of my life I was excited to see that Dark Phoenix was coming out and decided to go to the cinema to see it on the first opportunity that I had. Although this is a decent watch this is nothing like what I expected it to be and it really let me down.

I thought that this movie was good in showing how Phoenix had dangerous powers and that Jean had no control over them which led to her hurting the ones that she loved. Realising this she did try to get help from anyone who she thought would be able to help her which I thought was nice to …
