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

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

I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained. Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the b

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4F3Sn-Xzzo 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 stude
