My Review:
Having not seen Tenacious D in The Pick Of Destiny for years I couldn't resist giving this a watch and I completely forgot just how good this movie was and how much it did make me laugh.

The film is about JB who moves to Hollywood to try and meet the other half of what would be later called Tenacious D and how they came to be, when trying to win an open mic night however they realise that they need some new material and go after the pick of destiny which is held in the Rock and Roll museum.

I thought that this film brilliantly showed the way in which JB and Kyle started Tenacious D and their musical careers while also making the audience laugh through a lot of this movie. I thought that this film was real in the way that both Kyle and JB acted and made it a lot more relateable for the people watching the film. With songs throughout the film as well in different area's it brought the film more together and did bring the band really into the film and did have me singing along with some of the songs in which I knew. Not only this but with having the devil at the ending it is brilliantly leading up to the song Tribute which is not however in this movie but shows what the video is based off of. I thought that the drug use within the film wasn't overdone and didn't take away from the movie either which was a great addition as it showed how it helped to focus their music rather than take it away from them.

I would recommend this film to those who are fans of the band Tenacious D and those who are fans of Jack Black. I would also recommend for those who like comedy movies and those who like music based films to also give this a watch. I will definitely be seeing this movie again. 

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…

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…
