My Review:
Seeing this movie come up on recently added on Netflix I couldn't resist but to give this a watch especially as I am feeling very much in a Rom-Com movie mood lately. Seeing that this movie also had Rebel Wilson was in it made me want to check this out even more as she makes me laugh and I have enjoyed the movies I have seen her in previously.

I found that this was a movie in which I was able to relate to as the main character doesn't believe in love the way that rom-coms are shown and tries to get herself out of it. I loved that the message in the movie in which the watcher discovers in the end is that you should love yourself more than you love anyone else and I thought that this was something in which needed to be approached in a movie. By having the main character as just a normal person in which is easy to bond with I thought that this made the movie a lot more relateable for the audience and make a change from a lot of the rom-coms in which are shown. This movie made me laugh a lot more than I thought it would and played on the cliche's in which are within romantic comedy movies which I thought made it a lot more fun to watch while having the humour not feel forced at the same time. Having her also realise that she loves her best friend and wants to be with him and at the ending when she comes to the real world again realising that he has been looking at her for ages and that they are both wanting to be together was really sweet and made the perfect ending to the movie which stays true to the genre.

This is a film in which I would highly recommend to those who like romantic comedies and spoofs of them as well as this was really well done for both. I also think that if you are looking for a movie which will actually make you laugh then Isn't It Romantic would be a great film for you. This is one I will definitely need to see again!

My Rating: 4/5

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…

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle (film review)

Film: Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle
Year: 2017
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy
Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart, Jack Black
About: Four teenagers are sucked into a magical video game, and the only way they can escape is to work together to finish the game.

My Review: As someone who grew up watching the Jumanji film with Robin Williams I was worried about the new film and if this would ruin the film that I grew up loving. I was gladly proven wrong! This film is based after Jumanji and is through a video game which is more with the times rather than board games, not only this but it is based around two people who are more nerds/geeks (one male and one female) and two of the popular group (one male and one female). As you see them coming to terms with their new characters and making it so that the popular ones are the more weak characters who aren't as popular and vice versa it made the film something for everyone. The casting for this film was amazing and having such amaz…
