My Review:
With less than a week till Christmas and hearing a lot of good things about this movie I thought that I should check out The Christmas Chronicles and I am so glad I did as it is one of the best Christmas movies that I have ever seen.

This film was brilliant in showing how Santa worked and how the elves was able to help Santa bring all of the presents all around the world. As well as this by having the mum's Christmas wish from the beginning coming true by bringing the bother and sister together was a great way of bringing this movie together and also giving this film the idea that even adults can get their Christmas wishes coming true. The Christmas Chronicles made me laugh throughout as well as completely kept my attention throughout which made me feel so relaxed and by having the seriousness, comedy, drama and action parts of this film as well as a little music and bringing everyone getting Christmas spirit made me really get into the spirit of Christmas and love this film. I did think that Kurt Russell made a brilliant Santa and one I didn't expect out of him. Animation and CGI was a big part of this movie as well and I feel that it was done amazingly well and just improved this movie to me.

I would highly recommend this film to those looking to get into the Christmas spirit and one that doesn't feel childish at all and perfect for all of the family. I am definitely adding this to one of my favourite holiday movies and already can't wait to see it again!

My Rating: 5/5

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…
