My Review:
Having a movie day with my mother we decided to choose a film each and at her choice of film chose the amazing Guardians of the Galaxy which is a film I have loved since I first seen it in the cinema when it came out and still do years later.

Guardians of the Galaxy is about a man called Peter Quill who when scavenging comes across an orb for a lot of money and goes to sell it however things don't go his way and when the evil Ronan tries to get his hands on it. Will the guardians be able to stop Ronan and save the galaxy as a result or will Ronan succeed?

I love this film and all of the action in which it contains due to being able to see how each character is vital to the team which gets known as the Guardians of the Galaxy. Showing how each member comes into contact with each other is also a really good addition as it shows what the motivation behind all of the characters getting the orb and why they are all teaming together. I thought that there was a lot of foreshadowing in this movie to later in this film as well as to future films which brings the film more together as well as giving the watcher a lot more excitement for future movies. Comedy is another factor of this film which is a good addition as it shows each character properly and makes the film a lot lighter and fun to watch than if it was only just action all of the way through. The end scenes are personally favourites of mine as it shows groot dancing which is just really cute to watch as well as adds some more comedy to the film, also showing Howard the Duck at the very end makes me want to see a film more dedicated to him in which I hope they add later in the MCU. Finally, the soundtrack to this film is brilliant and makes me want to dance along with the songs and sing along as well, making it one of my favourite soundtracks for a movie possibly ever.

I can't fault this film and really enjoy this movie every single time I see it. I would highly recommend this film to those who are fans of the MCU as well as wants a comedy and action film which is perfect for the whole family. This is a film I will definitely see again!

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…

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 …
