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:
Wanting a nice easy film to watch I thought I would watch Shrek which is a film in which I grew up with and I am able to quote pretty much word for word. I find that this film always makes me happy and it just relaxes me to watch which is something in which I was really looking for when I decided to put this on.

Personally I love this film, this humour in it is brilliant for both adults and children which does make this an easy film to watch with the whole family. Not only this but by having it with fairytales in which people grew up with as some of the characters and making the traditional style into their own it is e…

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…

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AI2MbS-e_us

My Review:
Wanting something different to watch I thought I would check out Escape Room which is available to watch on Netflix.

This movie was good in that it did provide mystery and I did enjoy how the puzzles within the Escape Room were laid out and that every room had something in which they had to figure out and it was not just one room. I also enjoyed seeing how the people actually interacted with each other and why they seemed so hostile with certain characters. By also starting the movie with seeing someone having to choose a lock it came across very much like the movie "Saw" which does feel very much the same all the way through the movie. With also having the movi…
