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

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-X5WnMzOvA

My Review:
Having had my eye on this film for a while I was la when Netflix brought it on the service and I could finally see this especially with it having Dwayne Johnson and Vince Vaughn in it. Being also asked to review this film I thought it would be a good opportunity to do both of these at the same time. This is a film I never noticed was a biography movie before seeing it and I thought was good for showing more about the wrestler Paige.

I enjoyed how this film showed how a girl from England first got into wrestling and how it was her dream to be in the WWE and got given the opportunity. By also showing how she goes throu…

About: The dramatic story of the cutthroat race between electricity titans Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse to determine whose electrical system would power the modern world
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kue18AxK1tU

My Review:
Having wanted to see The Current War since it was in the cinema after seeing how it had an incredible cast of actors in which I already like I knew I had to see it once it came onto DVD. Not only this but not knowing much about the electricity feud this was a subject in which I found myself really interested in which made me enjoy this film a lot more than I had expected.

I thought that it was good how it showed the rivalry between both Edison and Westinghouse and how Edison was willing to tarnish his name in order to get ahead and even go against his own beliefs in order to try and win the…

About: Fred Claus, Santa's bitter older brother, is forced to move to the North Pole to help Santa and the elves prepare for Christmas in exchange for cash.
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VzXjtxZaGS8

My Review:
Over the Christmas period I decided to watch some films that I hadn't previously seen before and one of those being Fred Claus I thought that this was different to other Christmas movies as it focus' on Santa's brother rather than on Santa himself but also on how to keep Christmas alive and not have it closed down. By having Vince Vaughn as the main character in this I had good expectations for this movie as I generally enjoy everything in which I have seen him in.

I thought that Fred Claus was good in how it showed how Nicholas became a saint and how he is able to be Santa with the family not being able to age as a resul…
