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 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…

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:
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 while also becoming fri…
