My Review:
Having been asked to watch Mulholland Drive I decided to go into this movie completely blind and not know anything about this film before giving it a watch. I do wish however that I did check it out before I watched it and found out that this film personally just wasn't for me.

Mulholland Drive is about a girl who ends up coming to Los Angeles and finds another woman in her aunt's apartment who has no memory of who she is. As a result both woman try to find out who the woman is coming across loads of clues but not all is as it seems.

Personally, I didn't understand this movie and different parts of the movie seemed to clash to me making me wonder what was going on. I did find that when I did figure out what was happening within the movie I was wrong and ended up confused again about what was going on making me feel I would need to see this film again to properly understand what I had watched and get a better understanding of Mulholland Drive. I also thought that the sex scene's weren't needed and were just added to try and people more interested in the film as sex is easy to sell but did make me just feel that this was rather cheap.

I did however, like the mystery through the part in which I did start to understand of the movie and did hope that the girls would discover who woman was. As well as this I found that this film did show some really good acting from the two main actresses within the movie which did make this a little better to watch.

This film wasn't to my liking but I would suggest that people who like mystery films would like this and those who are looking for a film with a twist at the ending to give this a watch. Personally, I don't see myself watching this again.

My Rating: 2/5

My Review:
Being a movie I discovered years ago and completely fell in love with to the point it is one of my favourite movies of all time, I was excited to see that they had finally put this on Netflix so that others could discover it and love it as much as myself. As a result I thought I would re-watch Snowpiercer and give it a review which is fun for me as it is a film in which I really enjoy and feel is very underrated.

I love how this film begins by showing you how the passengers who are on the train that goes around the world are the only survivors of the human race. By doing this it shows how key the train …

My Review:
Wanting a style of film I don't usually watch but do enjoy I decided to watch the stalker movie that is My Teacher, My Obsession which is based on an English teacher who starts at a new school. However, when one of the students gets obsessed with him she will do anything to be with him including secluding him from everyone else.

I liked the foreshadowing at the beginning of the movie which matched up to the ending very well and shows how throughout the movie that this was coming up. I also liked how the film showed how the student was getting close to…

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle (film review)

Film: Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle
Year: 2017
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy
Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart, Jack Black
About: Four teenagers are sucked into a magical video game, and the only way they can escape is to work together to finish the game.

My Review: As someone who grew up watching the Jumanji film with Robin Williams I was worried about the new film and if this would ruin the film that I grew up loving. I was gladly proven wrong! This film is based after Jumanji and is through a video game which is more with the times rather than board games, not only this but it is based around two people who are more nerds/geeks (one male and one female) and two of the popular group (one male and one female). As you see them coming to terms with their new characters and making it so that the popular ones are the more weak characters who aren't as popular and vice versa it made the film something for everyone. The casting for this film was amazing and having such amaz…
