My Review:
Having a movie day I couldn't decide what film to review however one film stood out to me more than the others have and that was Storks which made me laugh as well as kept me entertained all the way through the movie. As a result I thought that this would be the perfect film for me to review.

Personally I liked how this film showed how Storks carried babies like what children are told when they are little however decided to change to just delivering parcels due to one of them wanting to steal a baby and as a result has lived in their warehouse her whole life. I did think that the main boss was mean and that from the beginning I didn't trust him especially when he wanted to get rid of her on her birthday even though it was the only home she had ever known. By also showing how he only seemed to care about money did kind of humour me as they are birds and don't need money in order to survive. Not only this but by having the boss also mean to the other birds in the factory it showed how he was not to be trusted! I thought that this created a good villain from the early stages of the movie which progresses well throughout. I did think by showing how the baby cuteness effected everyone from the storks, the humans and even a pack of wolves was good in giving a better understanding of how one of the storks could have chosen to try and steal a baby instead of giving it to the parents. I also thought that the wolves brought comedy to the movie which just enhanced the experience for me and I loved how they would create into different things in which they needed to be in order to progress which I thought was really clever. Having the ending show how the stork that stole her actually wanted to try and get her back home and tried to find all the pieces to get her there was really sweet and did make me feel for them both as it showed how he knew he had done wrong and tried to fix it the only way in which he knew how. Having her go home at the end of the movie and showing how the humans weren't her only family and that she believed the Storks to be her family was really sweet and showed how she appreciated where she came from and it would always be a part of her. Finally, I loved how the child in which asked for the baby to be brought got to spend time with his parents as a result as that is why he wanted a brother so that he would be able to have someone to play with and care for as he got no time with his parents as they were always working. As they realised that he needed time with them as well and managed to give him time with them in which they all enjoyed I thought that it was sweet and left me happy that he now had a proper family.

There isn't really anything in this film in which I didn't like and would say bothered me about it. I would definitely recommend this film to those who are looking for a film for the whole family and one that will make you laugh as well really care for the character's in which are created. I would definitely see this again!

My Rating: 4/5

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…

About: Four best friends test their intelligence when an escape room they participate in takes a dark and twisted turn.
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…
