My Review:
Having had this in my To Watch Pile for a while I thought it would be a perfect time to give this a watch for the first time. Being a fan of the first movie I wasn't sure what to expect with this movie and although this was different from what I would have expected I did think think that this was a good watch.

Showing at the beginning of the movie how she took down Bateman and never got caught showed how she became a killer and really helped to show the character right from the beginning. By also having her motivation to join the FBI so she could take down other serial killers was something else in which I thought was well done as it gave her killing purpose when she started killing her peers in order to get a teaching assistant job. Showing how she killed was in all different ways such as strangling, hanging, bashing heads in and more showed how she thought tactfully about how she would kill people and where she would put the bodies so that they would not be found. I did think that the ending was also a good twist with her not really being Rachel Newman and that she was using the alias in order to be at the university which later we see that she kills someone else to also steal theirs and get into the FBI which only the shrink she spoke to ended up finding out about. This did make me wonder who she really was which was kept a mystery even in the ending.

I did think however that by having the voice over throughout the film did distract me and was something that rather annoyed me about this movie. Not only this but I thought the acting and the script was not perfect for this movie and the motivation behind her killing was wrong. I do think that this movie would have been better if it wasn't a sequel to the American Psycho movie as I feel that it changed my opinion on it due to it not being something that the audience asked for.

Overall, this was a good killer movie and one that did surprise me with the ending of it and the twist I didn't see coming.  This is a film I would recommend to teenagers who are looking for a killer movie and a thriller. This is a film I would see again!

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 …
