My Review:
Being excited that there was a Spider-man movie coming out I needed to see it as soon as I could however this film left me feeling kinda disappointed at the end of the film which did upset me and I feel like they rushed over some parts and made other parts just a little too slow for me personally.

I did like that this film showed what happened to everyone since the Blip which happened in the Avengers movies and that even though some people aged the ones who came back were the same age and had to continue life as they had before. This helped to explain what happened with everyone after the events of Endgame and showed how life continued. I also liked how they started with showing Mysterio as a good guy and how he was saving the world from being destroyed to only turn into the villain himself. I thought by showing how he liked Peter and that he just wanted to destroy everything in which Tony while also showing the watcher why he was doing this kinda made me feel bad on him. By doing this it led me to understanding his character and also the backstory of him better than I have previous villains in the MCU. Not only this but I really liked how it showed how he was making the projections happen and the team in which he had working alongside him especially as it showed how they had also been let down by Tony Stark and only wanted what they felt would be justice for themselves. By doing this I thought it showed how even though people loved Tony he had made a lot of enemies. Also by showing how Peter was starting to become like Tony was with making his suit as well as loving the same music while he worked it showed how he was making Tony proud and that he was deserving of getting control of Edith just as Tony thought that he was. Showing how Peter just wanted to be normal as well I thought was really sweet and sad as he felt he couldn't get that as he had so much to live up to and was still grieving as well which made it worse on him. By also showing how he just wanted to show the girl he liked that he was wanting to be with her and went to a lot of trouble in order to do so was also something in which I thought was good for the viewer to see and how he is still just a teenager who just happens to have a lot of responsibility as a result. Finally, I thought that the second end scene at the very end of the credits was a teaser for what was still to come with finding that Fury was actually on a spaceship and that aliens were really the ones pretending to be him. This left me wondering what was going to happen next and if Fury will ever come back to Earth.

However, I did find that the way in which they changed Mysterio into a bad guy wasn't done in a good way and did make me feel like they made two separate movies for this and decided last minute to put them together which did leave me feeling a little lost and like they were trying to rush the movie. As things were progressing in the second half I did find myself getting a little bored which I was disappointed at as I was happy to be finally seeing this film. I did feel I was rather confused by the ending as well which shows how Mysterio decides to out Peter Parker as Spider-Man as the whole time he was dying on the bridge it didn't look like he had the time to do the video as well as leaving me wondering how he uploaded it. Especially with the edit of showing Peter's face to the world. Finally, I thought that this film was brought out a little too soon after Endgame had been released which did make me feel like this was rather rushed and wish that they had left a little longer between the movies!

Overall, I did like the new Spider-Man movie however it didn't give me the complete feeling in which a MCU movie usually does. This did however, leave me wondering what was going to happen next. I would recommend this film to those who are fans of Spider-Man and the MCU as well as those who are looking for a good action film. I will be seeing this film again however waiting till it is on physical formats.

My Rating: 4/5

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
