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:
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 to watch a rom-com and having this on my Watch List on Netflix I couldn't resist but give this film a chance and see what I thought. Having liked Emma Roberts in everything I had seen her in previously as well I was excited to see if this was another film of hers in which I would enjoy. This film surprised me however I ended up enjoying this more than I expected.

I liked that this film had a Romeo and Juliet vibe with the families not liking each other however the children both being in love with each other and feeling that their families were the reason in which they couldn't be together. I also thought it was clever having the grandparents also feelin…

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 …
