My Review:
Wanting something really easy watching to begin the weekend I thought that the perfect movie to watch would be Tad: The Lost Explorer which was very easy watching and would be perfect for children.

I thought that this movie was good at showing children never to give up on your dreams and just because it doesn't feel like they are going anywhere doesn't mean you should stop fighting for them. I thought by also showing that people should take opportunities that goes there way that this was a good thing for both adults and children in showing that they need to always aim high and do what makes them happy. This movie was full of adventure from basically the beginning of the movie and that was really good for me as it really brought me into the story very quickly and made me connect to the characters really well. By having humour throughout that didn't feel like it was forced it was good for the person watching this movie. Another thing that I did like about this movie was the way that the animation was done which felt more like it was made for children but not in a way that ruined the movie but kept it nice and light for the viewer.

This movie did lose me at points however not with a confusing plot but because it was really predictable so made me lose attention a few times throughout. I did also think that possibly this film was a little too childish for myself however I think that would make this great for a younger demographic.

Overall, this movie would be great for those with children who are looking for an animation movie to watch. Personally, I don't feel like I would see this again unless I was watching with children.

My Rating: 3/5

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…

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 …
