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:
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…
