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 the teacher and secluding him from everyone he was close to from her mother which he was dating and his daughter who finds out about them on her birthday. Showing how crazy the student really was is a good addition as the watcher was able to see how the student was breaking her hand and giving herself concussions and posting photos about herself and setting another student up so that she could get rid of anyone that she considered competition. With the ending also showing how she had done this with another teacher and would kill the teacher who she was obsessed with kill his daughter and her friend just so that she is the only person still in his life and so that he has nothing but her left. The very end showing how the teacher was starting another new job to get away from her and seeing her at the ending having found him shows that she is not done with him and that she is not going to let go of him easily.

On the other hand, the writing is not perfect and could have been done better, also it seemed rather unrealistic at times with how the teacher was not able to push the stalker off of himself and was not able to defend himself even though he seemed really strong where as she was skinny and didn't look like she would be hard to push away and get away from. Another thing that dd bother me was how at the ending the student who was stalking him was seen outside of his home and still following him even though she had stabbed his daughter and the evidence showing that she had killed someone else and seemed to have no punishment at all for it.

I do think My Teacher, My Obsssion is one of the better stalker movies in which I have personally seen and that it would be good for someone who likes films about stalkers and a thriller to see. I would also recommend this film to those who are wanting something that is not really gory at all and doesn't show nudity. I would see this film again.

My Rating: 4/5

Sahara (film review) *contains spoilers*

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

Brave (film review)

Film: Brave Year: 2012 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Mark Andrews, Brenda Chapman Starring: Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson About:  Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CKcqIahedc My Review: Having not seen Brave in years I thought it would be a perfect movie to watch which would make me feel proud as a Scottish person while watching an animation movie. I really like that this movie has clans which is something that is a huge part of Scotland's past and by having really common Scottish names it gave it more of a Scottish feel to the movie. Having a lead character in which doesn't want to be married off and wants to be her own person I think is a really key thing for people to watch and for children to know that it is okay t
