My Review:
Having not seen the newest Saw movie I was surprised to see that it was on Netflix, however this just made me have to see it especially on the lead up to Halloween. I am so glad that I was not disappointed with this movie as I was worried with the amount of Saw movies that this one would be the same and get boring rather quickly.

I thought that this film was rather clever and kept Jigsaw to the same formula in which the audience is used to with the Saw franchise. However, when the murders and bodies start happening ten years after John has died is he really back or is there a copycat murderer? I thought that it was good to show how John has never really left the city and that the murders were still in the same style as in the past. I liked how it showed murders and then the bodies from now however it turns out that the murders and games which was taking place is the same as a decade before however they never found the bodies as the new person is making it exactly the same with the same results in order to get the a corrupt cop to admit what he has done and how he has destroyed the life of others around him and innocent people. I did like how it showed how the new copycat worked with John and John helped him to create the traps and how to get revenge on those who needed to come to justice.

I did get a little confused as to how the bodies were still fresh a decade later when the new murderer was only saying he had three victims. I did also wonder what happened to John since he wasn't in his coffin when they went to check to make sure that it wasn't the John really back from the dead. Another thing that did bother me was that there was not as much gore in this as there was in the previous movies.

I personally liked this film and would recommend it to people who are fans of the Saw franchise and those looking for a horror movie with traps and having to try and escape. I would definitely give this another watch.

My Rating: 4/5

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:
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…

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle (film review)

Film: Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle
Year: 2017
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy
Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart, Jack Black
About: Four teenagers are sucked into a magical video game, and the only way they can escape is to work together to finish the game.

My Review: As someone who grew up watching the Jumanji film with Robin Williams I was worried about the new film and if this would ruin the film that I grew up loving. I was gladly proven wrong! This film is based after Jumanji and is through a video game which is more with the times rather than board games, not only this but it is based around two people who are more nerds/geeks (one male and one female) and two of the popular group (one male and one female). As you see them coming to terms with their new characters and making it so that the popular ones are the more weak characters who aren't as popular and vice versa it made the film something for everyone. The casting for this film was amazing and having such amaz…
