My Review:
Seeing The Titan on Netflix I thought that I would check it out as it was a sci-fi/thriller and new to 2018. This film was how I expected it to be and I was rather glad to have watched it.

The Titan is about a group of people who go through experiments in order to lower their oxygen levels and get them ready to go to the planet Titan in order to see if there is a chance that the human race could live outside of Earth. However the experiment is not what it seems.

I thought that this film was rather interesting and showed how to enhance human evolution in order to better the human race but also showed the side effects and how dangerous that it can be. By also keeping the families of the people close the audience was able to see how the family felt while their loved one was going through the experiment and how much the character was going through and changing from the beginning to the end. I thought by keeping some of the experiment a little secret till near the end of the movie it made the film more interesting and kept a little twist for the end of the movie. The casting for The Titan was also really well done and made me connect more with the characters due to casting which made the audience care for the characters. I also thought that having the very ending with the only person who survived the experiments having went to Titan showed how it was possible for making human evolution happen faster.

This movie however didn't go really into how they made the injections to make human evolution go faster and how more than only a couple of the people went on with the experiment. Also with the surgery when the person's skin went extremely different and paler it didn't explain how this happened.

I did think that this movie was good overall and a film I would see again. I would recommend this film to those looking for a sci-fi movie and one to do with human evolution.

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…
