My Review:
Having not seen Home in years and buying it after looking for it for ages I was extremely happy to give this movie another watch. Knowing this was a film I enjoyed the first time I seen it I had high expectations of this film and what I was expecting and I am so glad to have this film surprise me by having me enjoy it even more than previously.

I love how this film starts with showing how the Boov keep running away from their enemies which I think sets the atmosphere for the movie really well. With only one of them seeming different and that being Oh I like how it shows how he is just wanting to be friends with people and makes mistakes like everyone however wants to fix them as much as he possibly can. With finding a human girl and learning from her about family and the need for friendship I thought it was really sweet and created an amazing bond between the alien and the human as well as making the audience want them to survive together. Not only this humour throughout this film helped to keep it nice and light which is perfect for children while also having a more emotional impact when the girl finally gets reunited with her mother after being away from her because of the aliens and thinking they will never see each other again. Not only that but by showing how far family will go to get back to each other and the love for each other helped Oh to discover why the aliens they were running away from was searching for them and it was because they had the young of that species in which the leader of the Boov had stolen from them which could have made their race extinct. The animation throughout was really well done as well and helped to create the atmosphere and make this movie a great experience in which I found it really easy to get lost in.

Overall, this is a great animation movie in which I would recommend for the whole family as well as for those who are looking for a comedy movie. This is definitely a movie I will see again and I can't think of any faults with it.

My Rating: 5/5

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 sh

Sahara (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: Sahara Year: 2017 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Pierre Core Starring: Omar Sy, Louane Emera, Franck Gastambide About:  A young cobra and his scorpion best friend go on a journey across the Sahara desert to save a new-found love Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3IRkT9JsqM My Review: Having a movie day I came across Sahara when on Netflix and having no expectations about this film and also not knowing what it was about I thought that it would be the perfect film to blog about. I did think that this was a cute adventure movie but would be better suited to a younger audience than myself. I found that this film was really sweet that the snake wanted to go across the desert in order to find a snake in which he found he felt a connection with even though they were different kinds and also from different worlds. I also thought by having the girls brother being a drug addict and struggling with wanting more drugs and wanting to leave his sister w
