My Review:
Having been a huge fan of the MCU and being really excited for this movie since Infinity War came out in 2018 I couldn't wait to see this at the midnight release. I have waited a little while before uploading this review and that was so that when spoilers came up it was after the time in which Marvel said it was okay to do so.This is a film which I was so scared to watch but also so excited as well and really didn't want to see come to an end knowing this is the last for some of the characters within the Marvel Universe in which people are currently used to.

Avengers: Endgame is a film which was a lot funnier than I had expected and made me laugh and smile a lot throughout which wasn't the feeling of the movie I had expected before going into the cinema such as having Hulk and Banner finally becoming one and how they reacted to being a big celebrity and how when they went into the past he found it embarrassing to have been the aggressive Hulk in which everyone is used to. I found that even through this it still had a lot of heartfelt moments within it such as Nat (Black Widow) sacrificing herself for Clint (Hawkeye) in order to get the soul stone. Doing so created a really powerful moment in the movie which showed how true their friendship was with neither of them wanting to be the one who survived. Another part of this movie which is surprising and also so emotionally painful for me to have seen was when Iron Man made a glove for the infinity stones to get rid of Thanos and as a result killing himself due to the power and seeing how at his funeral everyone was there and supported him and what he done for the planet. By also showing how Thor went through grief was something I thought was quite well done even though they did make it funny with them making Thor fat and go into a state of anger even when hearing the name of Thanos after having lost his whole family and his people and being too late to stop the planet from having put the population down by half because of Thanos. I thought it was good to have shown how mental health can effect people and how at the ending he became who he wanted to be and started to get better because of his friends and those around him which I thought was really important message for people who are going through mental health conditions that you can get better. By also showing how Captain America went back in time and got his happily ever after with the woman in which he always loved was really sweet way for his story to end and really made it the perfect way to end the current MCU era.

I honestly only didn't like one part of this movie and that was that it seemed like the fight scene was really short and could have done more with it than they did. I felt like all it was leading up to just seemed rushed and didn't quite make the impact in which it should have which was unfortunate for me. However, the fight scene was still good to watch so I couldn't really mark this down too much for it.

Overall, Avengers: Endgame was a really good way of ending the current era of MCU and one that gets me excited about what will be happening next. I feel that this movie is great for those who understand the Marvel Universe however those who don't would find it difficult to really follow what was going on. I am definitely going to see this movie again and can't wait to see the bits I would have missed the first time from just being too exited about the movie.

My Rating: 5/5

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…
