My Review:
Having a look through my Netflix "To Watch List" I came across this film and wanting a nice and relaxing movie in which wouldn't take a lot of attention to watch I thought that this would be perfect and I was glad I did see this.

I found that this movie was really sweet and great for children who are looking for a nice adventure movie. I thought by having it crossing water knowing the animals are scared of water made it a nice change as well as I loved how they had to go through various different situations in order to find the mayor of their city. Having to go through pirates, a dragon and then a black sea all to find an island in which people find difficult to find. Having on the return journey them realising that the dragon was just someone who was lonely and wanted to have friends and other people around him even though he was going about it the wrong way and that the pirates also just wanted to be part of a community and were not as scary as they were trying to be at all. I thought showing this showed how people are not always who you think they are but by getting to know them you can see that sometimes they are lonely and just need people around them to understand them.

I thought this movie was rather too young for me however and did get me a little bored at times making my attention drift away from the movie which wasn't great and did make me rate this movie down a little bit. I also thought that this movie could have showed more character development as except from the elephant who learned to take control and to not be as scared everyone else seemed to stay the same throughout.

Overall, this would be a great film for children who are looking for an animation movie and one with an adventure which has nothing at all scary within it. I don't think I would personally see this again but it was a nice movie to see and one that is great for just relaxing to.

My Rating: 3/5

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

I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained. Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the b

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4F3Sn-Xzzo 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 stude
