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:
Being a movie I discovered years ago and completely fell in love with to the point it is one of my favourite movies of all time, I was excited to see that they had finally put this on Netflix so that others could discover it and love it as much as myself. As a result I thought I would re-watch Snowpiercer and give it a review which is fun for me as it is a film in which I really enjoy and feel is very underrated.

I love how this film begins by showing you how the passengers who are on the train that goes around the world are the only survivors of the human race. By doing this it shows how key the train …

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 student was getting close to…

My Review:
Having spent a lot of my teenage years watching She's The Man I thought I would give it a watch as I hadn't seen it in a while and loved this film all over again. 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 boy's team showed h…
