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:
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…

My Review:
Having not seen The Haunted Mansion in a while and been badly wanting to watch it for months I decided to watch this with my mum. As a favourite of mine when I was younger and still really enjoying it as an adult. This film makes me laugh as well as keeps me entertained throughout.

I love that this film is about a an who is stuck as a ghost due to killing himself and not really understanding the truth about how the love of his life died. I think by having the woman in the film look like her which is why she is brought to the mansion rather sweet and does make the water wonder with…

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-q8C_c-nlM

My Review:
Having been an X-Men fan for most of my life I was excited to see that Dark Phoenix was coming out and decided to go to the cinema to see it on the first opportunity that I had. Although this is a decent watch this is nothing like what I expected it to be and it really let me down.

I thought that this movie was good in showing how Phoenix had dangerous powers and that Jean had no control over them which led to her hurting the ones that she loved. Realising this she did try to get help from anyone who she thought would be able to help her which I thought was nice to …
