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:
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:
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…

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle (film review)

Film: Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle
Year: 2017
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy
Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart, Jack Black
About: Four teenagers are sucked into a magical video game, and the only way they can escape is to work together to finish the game.

My Review: As someone who grew up watching the Jumanji film with Robin Williams I was worried about the new film and if this would ruin the film that I grew up loving. I was gladly proven wrong! This film is based after Jumanji and is through a video game which is more with the times rather than board games, not only this but it is based around two people who are more nerds/geeks (one male and one female) and two of the popular group (one male and one female). As you see them coming to terms with their new characters and making it so that the popular ones are the more weak characters who aren't as popular and vice versa it made the film something for everyone. The casting for this film was amazing and having such amaz…
