My Review:
Feeling in the mood to see a romance movie I couldn't resist in watching one of my favourites called P.S. I Love You. This movie never fails to make me tear up and unable to look away from the screen.

I really like how the movie is taken place after the death of her husband and he is helping her to move on with her life by making her do different things and going to places in which she would not usually go in order to bring her back to the woman he loved. By sending her letters you can tell how much he loved her and that although he is no longer there he doesn't want her to just give up on her life and wants her to be the best person she can be. Having the movie also show the memories in which she is having with her late husband makes this film really sweet as the watcher is able to connect with both of the characters and really believe in their love and why the husband decides to do what he does. While this is going on having another character start to fall for her and want to be there for her is really sweet and you do hope for the two to get together even though by the ending you realise that they shouldn't be and are better as close friends. Another thing I do really like about this is that at the ending of the movie the watcher discovers that it is the mother who has been sending the letters for the husband and how even though she didn't like him she couldn't say no to his last wish especially when it helps her to heal even though it doesn't seem like it at the time. With the ending also showing that she might be able to move on with someone that her husband was friends with and helped to bring her to is really sweet and leaves the person watching believing that she will be able to be loved again and is opening herself up to being with someone else due to her late husbands help. The acting within this movie is something in which I love and makes the film really believable to me which really brings me into the movie.

Personally, I couldn't fault this film and is one that I really enjoy watching. I would recommend this film to those who are looking for a romance movie and one about moving on from the death of a loved one as it is amazing as both. This is definitely a movie I will watch again!

My Rating: 5/5

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8lDreq9le4 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 gr

Adoring the first film and having watched it a few days prior I was excited to see what happens in the second movie and if it would live up to first movie. I love that  Ralph Breaks The Internet continues on from the first movie really well and tells us that it has been six years that the main characters have been friends for and how Vanellope is starting to get bored of her game and wants more excitement in her life. By also showing how Wi-fi became a part of the a
