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

Film: Sahara Year: 2017 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Pierre Core Starring: Omar Sy, Louane Emera, Franck Gastambide About:  A young cobra and his scorpion best friend go on a journey across the Sahara desert to save a new-found love Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3IRkT9JsqM My Review: Having a movie day I came across Sahara when on Netflix and having no expectations about this film and also not knowing what it was about I thought that it would be the perfect film to blog about. I did think that this was a cute adventure movie but would be better suited to a younger audience than myself. I found that this film was really sweet that the snake wanted to go across the desert in order to find a snake in which he found he felt a connection with even though they were different kinds and also from different worlds. I also thought by having the girls brother being a drug addict and struggling with wanting more drugs and wanting to leave his sister w

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 b

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4F3Sn-Xzzo 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 stude
