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

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…

My Review:
Having not seen The Haunted Mansion in a while and been badly wanting to watch it for months I decided to watch this with my mum. As a favourite of mine when I was younger and still really enjoying it as an adult. This film makes me laugh as well as keeps me entertained throughout.

I love that this film is about a an who is stuck as a ghost due to killing himself and not really understanding the truth about how the love of his life died. I think by having the woman in the film look like her which is why she is brought to the mansion rather sweet and does make the water wonder with…

My Review:
Having been an X-Men fan for most of my life I was excited to see that Dark Phoenix was coming out and decided to go to the cinema to see it on the first opportunity that I had. Although this is a decent watch this is nothing like what I expected it to be and it really let me down.

I thought that this movie was good in showing how Phoenix had dangerous powers and that Jean had no control over them which led to her hurting the ones that she loved. Realising this she did try to get help from anyone who she thought would be able to help her which I thought was nice to …
