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

My Review:
Being a movie I discovered years ago and completely fell in love with to the point it is one of my favourite movies of all time, I was excited to see that they had finally put this on Netflix so that others could discover it and love it as much as myself. 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 shows how key the train …

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 student was getting close to…

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle (film review)

Film: Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle
Year: 2017
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy
Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Kevin Hart, Jack Black
About: Four teenagers are sucked into a magical video game, and the only way they can escape is to work together to finish the game.

My Review: As someone who grew up watching the Jumanji film with Robin Williams I was worried about the new film and if this would ruin the film that I grew up loving. I was gladly proven wrong! This film is based after Jumanji and is through a video game which is more with the times rather than board games, not only this but it is based around two people who are more nerds/geeks (one male and one female) and two of the popular group (one male and one female). As you see them coming to terms with their new characters and making it so that the popular ones are the more weak characters who aren't as popular and vice versa it made the film something for everyone. The casting for this film was amazing and having such amaz…
