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:
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…

About: Four best friends test their intelligence when an escape room they participate in takes a dark and twisted turn.
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AI2MbS-e_us

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…
