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

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

Sahara (film review) *contains spoilers*

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

Brave (film review)

Film: Brave Year: 2012 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Mark Andrews, Brenda Chapman Starring: Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson About:  Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CKcqIahedc My Review: Having not seen Brave in years I thought it would be a perfect movie to watch which would make me feel proud as a Scottish person while watching an animation movie. I really like that this movie has clans which is something that is a huge part of Scotland's past and by having really common Scottish names it gave it more of a Scottish feel to the movie. Having a lead character in which doesn't want to be married off and wants to be her own person I think is a really key thing for people to watch and for children to know that it is okay t
