My Review:
Looking through my movies and wanting something based in space to watch I decided to put on Supernova which is a film in which I couldn't remember at all. Not remembering it made me feel like this was a new movie to me and I did keep me watching all of the way through easily.

I like that this film showed how the device in which they discover is able to make people stronger and able to make them younger as well. By also having this device able to reattach body parts it makes the audience worried about how they will get rid of the villain since he has gotten overtaken by the device. I also liked that the villain showed how the team were not as strong as they thought that they were and easily manipulated. I also enjoyed seeing how they changed the computer programme to have a little more human emotion and is willing to go against their own code about hurting humans to save a human in which it loves however is too late to do so. This was really sweet and made me feel sorry on the Sweetie the computer programme. The ending in which the captain and the doctor manage to get back to Earth and how she is pregnant was a great way of ending the movie as it showed how something good came from it and that the father to her child was still with her and they would be able to go back to Earth and live their lives together. This film did captivate me though and made me want to keep watching and wonder what was going to happen next.

However, I feel that the beginning of the movie didn't feel like a beginning and I'm not sure wither it is because it is part way into their mission while they are away or just not enough background was given about the mission in which they were already on before embarking on a rescue mission. I also thought that there could have been more on the doctor's and the villain as they had a past prior to having re-met on the ship. The only other thing about this I feel could have been improved is really adding more time for each of the characters as I feel it was hard to connect to them as they were rather rushed over. 

Overall, I think this is a good sci-fi movie however the characters don't connect to the audience as well as they could. I would recommend this to people who are looking for a space thriller to watch. I would watch this again.

My Rating: 3/5

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

Brave (film review)

Film: Brave Year: 2012 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Mark Andrews, Brenda Chapman Starring: Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson About:  Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CKcqIahedc My Review: Having not seen Brave in years I thought it would be a perfect movie to watch which would make me feel proud as a Scottish person while watching an animation movie. I really like that this movie has clans which is something that is a huge part of Scotland's past and by having really common Scottish names it gave it more of a Scottish feel to the movie. Having a lead character in which doesn't want to be married off and wants to be her own person I think is a really key thing for people to watch and for children to know that it is okay t
