My Review:
Having seen the other two movies in the trilogy which consists of Unbreakable and Split, I could not resist but to see Glass the first chance I got and I was not disappointed!

This movie carries on from the ending of Split perfectly in which the beast is still around and killing people but this time with the difference of David trying to stop him. While trying however they end up in a psych ward and I liked that they done this as it kept the movie more to the real world in which they were hoping for. Having it so that someone would try to help them get better and stop delusions of being a super hero when they are just a normal person. By showing more of the personalities that Kevin had within him and James McAvoy bringing to life is amazing to watch and really shows how good an actor he really is by highlighting his talents. I really liked how they also showed more of the beast who isn't really shown much in Split and how he is just trying to protect Kevin any way that he can even if that means killing people. By also showing how David was wanting to stop him and keep the public safe against villains however having The Beast as his main enemy was something I did like which brought the two movies together. By also adding the character of Glass into it who did end up creating both of the superheros by the train catastrophe was something I thought was really clever. I did really like how the girl who The Beast decided to keep alive in Split is able to get through to all of the personalities in which Kevin has within him and keep him calm as he won't hurt her showing that he was able to love and that there was hope for the Beast not to fully take over Kevin. With also having the ending of the movie with the three leaf clover was something that left the audience wondering who these people were and how they ended up getting together in order to stop people who were like Kevin, Glass and David. Also who else they had stopped in the past which leaves the audience open to their own thoughts about what happens next and who these people are. Finally, I really liked how the public got to see that there was people who were different from them and more like superheros than normal people so that people were not being kept quiet and the legacy of their loved ones would be able to carry on even after their deaths. 

The only thing about this movie in which I wasn't that fond of was how much slower this movie seemed to feel compared to the other two in the trilogy. However, as this fit the movie I thought that this was not a huge deal for me. I also thought that it left the movie a little too open at the ending of the movie with the public knowing about the superhuman people who are around them as well as how the people who have been tattood with the three leaf clover might handle the situation.

Overall, this movie is one that people should not miss and for those who are fans of Unbreakable and Split this is one that you need to see in order to finish the trilogy. I would say that you need to watch the other movies before seeing this one as otherwise this film wont make as much sense and would confuse you. I look forward to watching this film again and catching parts I feel I might have missed with my first time viewing.

My Rating: 4/5

My Review:
Having been interested in this movie for a while and it really catching my eye lately especially with it being on Netflix I couldn't resist but to give this a watch. This is something in which I had better expectations for than it gave me and seemed a rather forgettable movie even though it wasn't a bad watch.

I liked that The Girl With All The Gifts started with showing how the children were taught and kept in separate rooms however made the audience wonder why they were kept that way when they seemed like normal children. Later discovering that they were zombies and that there was a zombie break all over the world through the cause…

My Review:
Wanting to watch a rom-com and having this on my Watch List on Netflix I couldn't resist but give this film a chance and see what I thought. Having liked Emma Roberts in everything I had seen her in previously as well I was excited to see if this was another film of hers in which I would enjoy. This film surprised me however I ended up enjoying this more than I expected.

I liked that this film had a Romeo and Juliet vibe with the families not liking each other however the children both being in love with each other and feeling that their families were the reason in which they couldn't be together. I also thought it was clever having the grandparents also feelin…

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-q8C_c-nlM

My Review:
Having been an X-Men fan for most of my life I was excited to see that Dark Phoenix was coming out and decided to go to the cinema to see it on the first opportunity that I had. Although this is a decent watch this is nothing like what I expected it to be and it really let me down.

I thought that this movie was good in showing how Phoenix had dangerous powers and that Jean had no control over them which led to her hurting the ones that she loved. Realising this she did try to get help from anyone who she thought would be able to help her which I thought was nice to …
