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:
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…
