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:
Wanting a nice easy film to watch I thought I would watch Shrek which is a film in which I grew up with and I am able to quote pretty much word for word. I find that this film always makes me happy and it just relaxes me to watch which is something in which I was really looking for when I decided to put this on.

Personally I love this film, this humour in it is brilliant for both adults and children which does make this an easy film to watch with the whole family. Not only this but by having it with fairytales in which people grew up with as some of the characters and making the traditional style into their own it is e…

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…

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AI2MbS-e_us

My Review:
Wanting something different to watch I thought I would check out Escape Room which is available to watch on Netflix.

This movie was good in that it did provide mystery and I did enjoy how the puzzles within the Escape Room were laid out and that every room had something in which they had to figure out and it was not just one room. I also enjoyed seeing how the people actually interacted with each other and why they seemed so hostile with certain characters. By also starting the movie with seeing someone having to choose a lock it came across very much like the movie "Saw" which does feel very much the same all the way through the movie. With also having the movi…
