My Rating:
Having been recommended to watch Inception and not having seen it in years I gave it a watch and was surprised on how great this movie was and how I had not given this film more attention in the past.

Inception is about a mission to help break up a company of a competitor through the use of planting the idea in his head through layers which can only be made through going into other people's dreams. Not only this but when the main operative's own subconscious comes through could it destroy everything?

I love the concept of this film and thought that it was acted out brilliantly and executed in a way which was very understanding and kept the watcher entertained all the way through. Understanding why the subconscious from the main character was breaking through and his guilt also was great at better understanding the movie. I do like that it explains how to wake up the characters without having them trapped and what happens if someone gets stuck in the dream world and dies so ends up in limbo.Having the character in which they are planting the idea I enjoyed how it went through how he didn't get along with his father and was told how he was a disappointment and felt he wasn't wanted by his father to coming to terms with his fathers death and that he didn't need to live in his fathers shadow but could be his own man which he realises by the end of the movie. The ending of the movie when you see that the main character is still in limbo and never made it back was a great ending as it showed that he didn't want to come back now that he had made peace with his guilt and that now he is able to be with his children now that the job has been done. It does leave the watcher also wondering if the main character will want to come back to reality and see his real children or if he will just stay in limbo with his children or die due to still being in the water. 

I do wish however that there was more explanation in how the dream world works and how they are able to go into each other's dreams which I feel that it doesn't touch upon as much.

Overall, this is an amazing movie and one that I would recommend to those looking for an action and sci-fi movie. I would also recommend this film to those who are fans of "The Matrix". I will definitely be watching this film again.

My Review: 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:
Having not seen The Haunted Mansion in a while and been badly wanting to watch it for months I decided to watch this with my mum. As a favourite of mine when I was younger and still really enjoying it as an adult. This film makes me laugh as well as keeps me entertained throughout.

I love that this film is about a an who is stuck as a ghost due to killing himself and not really understanding the truth about how the love of his life died. I think by having the woman in the film look like her which is why she is brought to the mansion rather sweet and does make the water wonder with…

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 …
