With another month rolled by it means that I've watched 10 more movies and therefore another 'Quick Film Chats' post is here! Looking back I've watched a whole mix of movies this time, some recent film releases and then some oldies! I sampled the NowTV free 14 day trial as a lover of films and considering Netflix can be a hit or miss to see whether it was any good. Tbf the choices available for films are pretty top notch, it was quite difficult to decide what to watch within the 14 days! (hard going let me tell you!) However, I don't know whether I'll give up Netflix to use that service full time yet... suppose time will tell! 


Cabin Fever (2002) 
I remember watching this film many years ago whilst at college, when I was slightly interested in watching more Horror films! Cabin Fever definitely isn't the easiest film to watch, especially when it comes to some of the gory parts. It follows a group of five college graduates who rent a cabin in the woods and begin to fall victim to a horrifying flesh-eating virus, which then attracts the unwanted attention of the homicidal locals. I am interested in how tense the film can become and watching how individuals fall victim to the flesh-eating virus. 

Ghostbusters (2016) 
I do love the classic 1984 Ghostbusters film and I'm not always too keen on a film remake. So to be honest my expectations of the recent remake of Ghostbusters were they used a strong female lead cast instead of male weren't too great after reading other reviews. I actually thoroughly enjoyed this film, I thought it was quite a interesting storyline which kept the main strand of the Ghostbusters film within it. I found some moments very fun too! I would definitely give it a go to see what you think! 


Hard Candy (2005) 
Jordan's had this DVD laying around the house for a while so one afternoon I took caution to the wind and decided to give it a go! The film is an American psychological crime thriller film that centres around the torture of a male sexual predator by a 14 year old female vigilante. I found this film quite disturbing and quite a struggle to follow, it's definitely at times a difficult watch. This book won't be for everyone. 

The Harry Hill Movie (2013) 
I stumbled across this film whilst relaxing at a hotel and it's the most ridiculous storyline ever! It has potential with some great cast members but I'm not surprised it's a film that hasn't been raved about much. 


Ice Age (2002) 
Ice Age is such a good animation film, I loved finding it whilst sampling the Now TV app. It's hilarious and such an easy to follow movie. It's had many more films within it's franchise since this one in 2002, one came out last year I believe. Some of them are not as good as the others but the original is definitely the better one! I always find myself quoting along with the film and still getting the emotions at the end of the film too. 

Lego Batman Movie (2017) 
I'm one of the few who actually quite enjoyed the Lego Movie when it came out, I thought it was an easy to watch film and it's humour made me laugh (which can be tough with comedies!) so I was really excited to see how they created Lego Batman. I loved it, I thought it was hilarious at moments and loved how they created iconic characters in an animation.
Mike and Dave need Wedding Dates (2016) 
This is another one I sourced whilst trying out the Now TV app, most drawn to it by it's casting than it's initial plot. It follows two brothers, known for their partying hard antics who place an online ad to find the perfect dates for their upcoming sister's wedding. They will soon find themselves out-hustled by an uncontrollable duo of ladies. It has some really funny moments, kind of a predictable at times because of it's plot. It had the potential to be a good film.

Police Academy (1984) 
The original, first film as part of a franchise I have some fond memories of watching this film with my grandparents whilst at their house over the summer. I still laugh hard at this comedy film which follows the most unlikely of troupe as they begin their training to become part of the police force. It's humour is slapstick but it's timeless to watch!

The Incredibles (2004) 
Still one of my favourite Disney Pixar movies and I'm pretty damn excited that they are finally releasing the 2nd film soon! It's got some of the best quotes in it and if your a fan of superheroes then this film is great. I love watching this film over and over, so bloody good. 



Wonder Woman (2017) 
In terms of DC movies I wasn't too impressed with Batman V Superman and Suicide Squad was 'alright' but the recent release of Wonder Woman completely blew the recent movies out of the water, standing on it's own. I loved this film from beginning to end, there's a real ethos on girl power in this film and even I was surprised in how much this film engaged me. It's so good to see more woman get recognised as role models for girls.
