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:
Wanting a nice easy film to watch I thought I would watch Shrek which is a film in which I grew up with and I am able to quote pretty much word for word. I find that this film always makes me happy and it just relaxes me to watch which is something in which I was really looking for when I decided to put this on.

Personally I love this film, this humour in it is brilliant for both adults and children which does make this an easy film to watch with the whole family. Not only this but by having it with fairytales in which people grew up with as some of the characters and making the traditional style into their own it is e…

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:
Wanting something different to watch I thought I would check out Escape Room which is available to watch on Netflix.

This movie was good in that it did provide mystery and I did enjoy how the puzzles within the Escape Room were laid out and that every room had something in which they had to figure out and it was not just one room. I also enjoyed seeing how the people actually interacted with each other and why they seemed so hostile with certain characters. By also starting the movie with seeing someone having to choose a lock it came across very much like the movie "Saw" which does feel very much the same all the way through the movie. With also having the movi…
