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

Adoring the first film and having watched it a few days prior I was excited to see what happens in the second movie and if it would live up to first movie. I love that  Ralph Breaks The Internet continues on from the first movie really well and tells us that it has been six years that the main characters have been friends for and how Vanellope is starting to get bored of her game and wants more excitement in her life. By also showing how Wi-fi became a part of the a
