My Review:
Being a fan of John Wick and realising that a third movie was on it's way I was excited to give this a watch at the first opportunity I had and with all of the action within it, it did not disappoint.

I loved that from the very beginning of this movie till the very end scene was full of action and killing which is how people know John Wick. I thought by doing this it kept really true for the fans of the franchise and with everyone against John Wick showed how great an assassin he really is. Having from the very beginning how people who helped John Wick at all also getting punished I thought made this more real and showed how the the High Table would not stand for anyone helping him after he killed one of their own. With showing how the king was taken off of his throne and being cut seven times for giving John seven bullets and at the very ending seeing him want to bring down the table, which makes him save John in order to get him on side was a great way of leading into a forth movie! Showing how John's friend Winston was determined to keep his power and so much so as to after having John Wick not kill him and to help save his hotel ended up shooting him was so expected but couldn't help feeling sorry on John for putting his trust in someone in which didn't care about him. Having a character in this movie say that they also looked up to John and make the audience laugh at times was something which I did like as even though this movie was full of action made this movie lighter at moments which did stop it from being serious all the way through which I did personally like.

However, this film did have some faults in my opinion, I found that this movie although had a lot of action and was a great bridge movie for the forth movie to come in didn't really focus enough on the plot of the film which I was rather disappointed with as I feel that they could have done more with the High Table rather than just a quick moment. Not only this but some of the deaths within John Wick: Chapter 3- Parabellum were really not believable and just rather funny to see which was a good change of pace at times but felt that some of the shots within those scenes could have been better. The only other thing about this movie that I will put as a negative however wasn't really a problem for myself was that you needed to know the previous movies to fully understand why John was being hunted down and could come across confusing to people in which haven't seen the previous movies.

Overall, this is a great addition to the John Wick series of movies and one that is very action packed. I would recommend this film to those who are fans of John Wick and people who are fans of action movies as this one has action non-stop throughout it. I will definitely see this movie again but as part of the series and not as a stand alone movie.

My Rating: 4/5

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 …
