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:
Over the Christmas period I decided to watch some films that I hadn't previously seen before and one of those being Fred Claus I thought that this was different to other Christmas movies as it focus' on Santa's brother rather than on Santa himself but also on how to keep Christmas alive and not have it closed down. By having Vince Vaughn as the main character in this I had good expectations for this movie as I generally enjoy everything in which I have seen him in.

I thought that Fred Claus was good in how it showed how Nicholas became a saint and how he is able to be Santa with the family not being able to age as a resul…

My Review:
Wanting to start watching Christmas movies with it being the middle of December I thought I would start with a movie in which was on Netflix which has been on my list recently called Elliot The Littlest Reindeer. With a cast of voice actors in which I already liked I hoped that this would be something I would enjoy and I am glad I was not mistaken as the movie ended up being rather cute and something I enjoyed more than I expected.

I thought by showing how Santa's reindeer was able to retire and have other reindeer take their place was rather a good concept especially as it showed how…

My Review:
From the moment that this was released onto Netflix I was excited about this movie especially as it seemed to be different from the usual Christmas movies in which have come out before. From my excitement I was scared that maybe I had hyped it up a little too much for myself and I wasn't going to enjoy it as much as I thought but I am so glad I was wrong. I loved this movie and it was different from other films I had seen and made me captivated throughout and make me feel like this is a film in which everyone needs to see and e…
