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=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

I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained. Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the b
