My Review:
Having wanted to see this movie in the cinema however never getting around to it I managed to see it through the online website Rakuten TV.

I thought that this film was funny throughout and was a great mystery film which is all made into a game for the group of friends, with this film also bringing in a creepy neighbour in which the audience doesn't trust was a good addition. I thought that this film had a couple of really good twists within it and made me want to see more of what was going to happen next as well as shocked with some of the things that ended up happening to the friends and the bother as a result. With the ending also showing that there could be a second movie coming out this did excite me as I really want to see what happens next with the group of friends and with the criminals in which they were dealing with. I did think that the acting was really well done in this as well which did make me enjoy the film a lot more than I had expected.

However, I did feel that this film was not believable at times and did come across a bit more silly than I wished it did at certain points in the movie which did make me mark this movie a little lower than I would have otherwise.

I would recommend this movie to those who are looking for an action movie which is a comedy and one that people have not seen loads of times before. I will be seeing this film again as I really did enjoy it and can't wait to see if there was any parts of this in which I missed the first time around watching this.

My Rating: 4/5

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…
