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:
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…
