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

Sahara (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: Sahara Year: 2017 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Pierre Core Starring: Omar Sy, Louane Emera, Franck Gastambide About:  A young cobra and his scorpion best friend go on a journey across the Sahara desert to save a new-found love Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3IRkT9JsqM 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 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
