My Review:
Having not seen the second in the Jurassic World series, I thought this would be a perfect time for me to give it a watch especially after really enjoying the first one.

I thought that this movie was really good and I liked how it was set years after the destruction of the park in the first movie. By doing this it kept the timeline on track but also made the audience care more for the dinosaurs and the danger in which they are in due to already being introduced in the previous movie, especially Blue! By having people come and abduct Blue in order to use her to create a weapon for a dinosaur which would be able to understand commands and be the perfect killing machine. By also showing how people were selling the dinosaurs in order to gain  money I thought that this was something which felt real as this is something which would end up happening if dinosaurs were currently alive. Having the little girl as well which is related to the person who helped to bring them back to life and the twist that she was actually a clone of his daughter was something I didn't see coming and did end up shocking me! I do love that the T-Rex seems to only kill those in which are threatening the rest of the dinosaurs in this movie and shows how it is one of the most caring dinosaurs that is there as well as Blue who always seems to protect Owen when he is in danger due to having grown up with him. The ending of this film when the dinosaurs become free made me really happy, especially as there was a chance that they would die due to lack of oxygen. Showing how the dinosaurs are no longer in captivity but able to roam the world and find their own place was something I did think was really sweet and something that made me smile. However, I am wondering what is happening to the dinosaurs in which was already sold before Owen was able to free them.

The only thing about this movie in which I thought wasn't great was there was a couple of plot holes which left questions for the audience however these might be able to get filled in if they decide to make a third movie. I did think that there could have been more background on the character of Mills as to find out why he was the successor to the fortune and why he feels the need to sell the dinosaurs instead of saving them and going against what would have been his initial love for them. I also thought that the child screaming at the ending so much was rather annoying and wish she would scream less as it made me start to dislike her character, even though her character had a good story.

Overall, I do think that this is a great movie and one that made me really care for the dinosaurs more than in the first movie. I would recommend this to people who do like dinosaurs and would like a good action movie. I am definitely going to be watching this again!

My Rating: 5/5

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:
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:
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…
