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

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…

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…
