Film: Baby Driver
Year: 2017
Genre: Action, Crime, Thriller

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dw3F9lfA21Y

My Review:
Having never seen this movie and having owned it for a couple of months I decided to give it a watch and I am so glad I did as this film was better than I expected it to be.

Baby Driver is about a man called Baby who is working for a crime lord to pay him back for something in the past however when all of the money is paid up and he thinks that he is finally free he gets pulled into one last job that he does not want to do.

I thought that this film was really good in showing why he had his headphones in all of the time and how he was still able to know what everyone was saying and his passion for music. I thought by having him live with someone who had to do sign language was good as that is  not really seen in movies and explains how Baby still knows everything which is happening around him when other people think that he is not listening to them. This movie did also have great car chases and a lot of action which seemed necessary and not forced which was something I did find went well with the film as a whole. Not only this but by adding a little humour with the Mike Myers masks did make me laugh and showed how the people were still human and that they still made mistakes like everybody else does. The love interest in this movie was also a good way of showing how Baby wanted to change his life and give her a life she always wanted however without making it cheesy and like the film is focused upon their romance instead of the work that Baby has to do. I do find myself liking Ansel Elgort as an actor more with everything I see him in and find that he was a perfect choice for playing the main character in Baby Driver.

I would recommend this movie to those are looking for an action film which isn't all explosions but a bit more of the real world. I will definitely be seeing this movie again and I am so glad to have picked this film up.

My Rating: 4/5

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…

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-q8C_c-nlM

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 …
