My Review:
With it coming up to Halloween I decided to watch a more Halloween movie which wasn't a horror film and as a result ended up watching A Witches Ball which can be found on Netflix.

The film is about a girl who gets to be valedictorian so gets her crystal ball prior to the the ceremony of the witches. However, when it gets broken into pieces the girl goes and tries to make the ball one before the ceremony with the help of her pet rat.

I thought that this film was funny at parts and did make me enjoy the film a lot more than I expected I would. I liked how it added some adventure to the film with the map and having to find people that would be able to help fix the crystal ball which had been broken. I thought that by showing how people were able to talk through animals was good as it made the watcher understand how long distance calls were able to be done with magic. Having the bully actually understood at the end of the movie as well and why she acts the way she does highlighted how every story has two sides to it and not to judge people without the full story.

I did think however that this film could have been better and could have added more magic into it as it wasn't really shown within the movie as a whole. I also wish that they gave better understanding of how different witches know what kind of witch or wizard that they were as it is not shown in the film.

I do think that this film would be good for children looking for a Halloween movie and one with a little adventure as well. I don't know wither I would see this movie again however I am glad to have given A Witches Ball a watch.

My Rating: 3/5

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…

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:
Having spent a lot of my teenage years watching She's The Man I thought I would give it a watch as I hadn't seen it in a while and loved this film all over again. 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 boy's team showed h…
