My Review:
Wanting a tearjerker film to watch Miracles from Heaven came to my attention and seeing that it was based on a true story made me want to watch this even more.

The film is about a girl who ends up getting a rare stomach disease which could make her no longer able to digest food and is dying the parents go through trying to save their daughter no matter what it takes and how the mother goes through losing her faith and how she manages to get it back.

I found this film was really moving and did make me on numerous occasions feel close to tears and at one point did indeed make me cry This was due to amazing acting from the whole cast which brought this film more to life. The doctor in which helped them did make me laugh during the film and was good to see how he was able to make the children happy even though they were in a bad place which did make me respect him a lot. Having this film also show how the doctors didn't believe the parents over their daughter being ill and how the different tests didn't show anything in which was wrong with her showing that sometimes doctors can be wrong and that sometimes you need to make sure tests are being done till you are aware what's wrong if it is something serious. Miracles from Heaven also showed at the ending what happened to the real family and where they are now after the ordeal in which this film takes place, this was a great addition which did make me smile.

I didn't find any faults with this movie at all. This is a great movie and one that I would recommend to those who are looking for a film to make them cry and one that is based on a true story. Personally, this is a drama movie which was done brilliantly and I will definitely be watching again.

My Rating: 5/5

Sahara (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: Sahara Year: 2017 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Pierre Core Starring: Omar Sy, Louane Emera, Franck Gastambide About:  A young cobra and his scorpion best friend go on a journey across the Sahara desert to save a new-found love Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3IRkT9JsqM My Review: Having a movie day I came across Sahara when on Netflix and having no expectations about this film and also not knowing what it was about I thought that it would be the perfect film to blog about. I did think that this was a cute adventure movie but would be better suited to a younger audience than myself. I found that this film was really sweet that the snake wanted to go across the desert in order to find a snake in which he found he felt a connection with even though they were different kinds and also from different worlds. I also thought by having the girls brother being a drug addict and struggling with wanting more drugs and wanting to leave his sister w

Film: Brave Year: 2012 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Mark Andrews, Brenda Chapman Starring: Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson About:  Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CKcqIahedc My Review: Having not seen Brave in years I thought it would be a perfect movie to watch which would make me feel proud as a Scottish person while watching an animation movie. I really like that this movie has clans which is something that is a huge part of Scotland's past and by having really common Scottish names it gave it more of a Scottish feel to the movie. Having a lead character in which doesn't want to be married off and wants to be her own person I think is a really key thing for people to watch and for children to know that it is okay t
