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:
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 …
