Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqfuKsoEEms

My Review:
Having seen the cast of this movie and realising I like almost the whole cast I couldn't resist but to give this a watch and I was very happily surprised by this film!

I thought that this film was really good in that it showed how the hotel is very private and only people with the correct chip in them were going to be able to get in and cured by the nurse who runs the Hotel Artemis and only those who are criminals. By showing how some of the main characters of this movie ended up at the hotel was also something that brought the characters all together right away and make the watcher feel more for the characters involved within this movie. As the story carries on and fights and deaths start to happen within the movie this is something I am glad happened as it let me feel for the deaths and let me understand more of the characters. Also by having the nurse having extreme anxiety I thought was a good touch as it showed how experiences change people and how difficult it is for those who have anxiety and other mental health issues and they are not able to be fixed the same way as just healing the human body. By also showing that part of the reason for this is the death of her son and then later in the movie finding out why he ended up dying was something that ended up shocking me within the movie and feel sorry for the nurse, especially when the watcher discovers it is by the same person who actually helped her to make Hotel Artemis. As the movie comes to near the ending and the crime lords son breaks into the hotel I felt worried for the security guy who was working there who ended up getting mobbed by his thugs who with at the ending of the movie turned the lights back on and the person seeing the movie discovers is still alive I felt so happy as I found him to be a character in which I really felt for. I also thought it was sweet for the female assassin to have stayed and fight the mob thugs as well to help the person who she loved escape with his life as her way for saying sorry for killing his brother by mistake. The acting within this movie from all of those involved was really well done and made this film a huge success in my opinion and really helped to bring this movie to life.

I did wish however that there was more understanding about why there was the riots all over the city and what made the city like a war zone as a result of this as this was not touched upon and I feel could have made light of some of the questions I had about the movie as a whole. The only other thing I wish this movie showed was the other crime bosses in which were around and that was paying the assassin in order to kill the head of Los Angeles as we don't know anything about them except that they hired the female assassin.

Overall, Hotel Artemis was a great action movie and one with an amazing cast within it. I would highly recommend this film to those who are looking for an action movie and those who like crime. I am definitely going to be watching this movie again and look forward to spotting things I didn't my first time seeing it.

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:
Having not seen The Haunted Mansion in a while and been badly wanting to watch it for months I decided to watch this with my mum. As a favourite of mine when I was younger and still really enjoying it as an adult. This film makes me laugh as well as keeps me entertained throughout.

I love that this film is about a an who is stuck as a ghost due to killing himself and not really understanding the truth about how the love of his life died. I think by having the woman in the film look like her which is why she is brought to the mansion rather sweet and does make the water wonder with…

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 …
