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 easy for the audience to know what they are watching and not have to really concentrate on it. I also think it is really nice to have a movie where the characters are not all gorgeous and how that it is all about personality and can still find love. By having this I think it helps to make a change from the normal fairytales that are shown and feel a lot more people are able to relate with it. Having Shrek be easily quotable makes it easily memorable and a film in which everyone knows right away without needing to say what film you are talking about. The music is something else in which I really like and isn't the music in which you find in most fairytales but more modern and songs that are easy to sing along to. Though by not really having a musical element in which a lot of fairytales have it makes it a little different and a film in which I really enjoy.

There isn't anything in which I don't like about this film! I would highly recommend this to people who are wanting a family film to watch as well as an animation film. I would also recommend this film to those who are looking for a non traditional fairytale which will make you laugh. I am definitely going o be watching this again.

My Rating: 5/5

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 noticed this on Netflix and thinking that it sounds like an interesting watch I thought I would give it a try and although it was different and that was what I was looking for it didn't quite hit the mark for me.

I did like that the main girl within the film was a teenager who wasn't in the right relationship for her and she had to discover that for herself. With people also thinking that it wasn't quite right and her defending him it seemed relateable to a lot of relationships which did make the girl a lot more likable and one that people could identify with. Having a bad relationship with her father and the thing that goes into people every day helping to fix that I thought was really swee…

My Review:
Having had my eye on this film since last month I finally gave in and decided to watch it. Leaving looking into this film and not seeing the trailer as I didn't want to ruin this for myself either I went in with an open mind and unsure what to expect. This film definitely exceeded my expectations and left me constantly wanting to know what was going to happen next.

I thought that Mune: Guardian of the Moon was great in that it had someone who didn't want the job of guardian get it and have to learn it all for…
