The Perfect Date
15 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I was expecting something like Too All the Boys I've Loved Before, that wasn't it. I think because of that, I enjoyed it less. The cast was great though, that was one of the things that got me really excited. The storyline and the character development were both a bit disappointing. It was a fun and easy going movie, but don't expect too much from it.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
15 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I really really really loved this movie. Honestly, I really really really loved all three movies. This one truly, once again, lived up to all my expectations. It looked beautiful, it was funny ( I cried of laughter at one point), I loved seeing all the characters again. It was just great. In the end, it got quite emotional for me personally. I tried very hard to hold back my tears but I let one slip, so I was happy my 3D glasses helped me cover up my tear filled eyes. I will miss these movies very much and be sure to watch them all again very soon.

Just realized that I pretty much only talked about my emotions but I also want to say something about the storyline. I think this movie had one of the best storylines of all three. I witnessed a growth in multiple characters, which is something I really enjoyed. I hated the bad guy, which hasn't happen in this trilogy yet, so that's pretty great. Loving all these emotions, to be honest.

So, if you haven't noticed by now, I loved How to Train Your Dragon (all of them) and HIGHLY recommend you watch them all :-)

Mortal Engines

I was soooo excited for this movie to come out! I love Peter Jackson his work and couldn't wait to see this. Let's start off with the graphics. They were everything we are used to when we think "Peter Jackson", so so beautiful. I think they might be my favourite part of this movie, to be honest. The characters are a close second though. You could relate to most of them which made it easy to form a bond (either love or hate). There could have been a bit more character development if you ask me (and as my friend said at the end of the movie "the biggest friendzone movie I've ever seen"). One thing I really missed while watching Mortal Engines was the history. I felt like they left out a lot of valuable and interesting information and filled that precious time with more action scenes. Which to me was a bit disappointing.

So, overall, a cool idea, a really beautifully made movie but lacking a bit of depth in the screenplay.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

½

My favourite thing about this movie was, 100%, the graphics. It was so beautiful to look at. The storyline itself had a very long buildup to the "action" part. Which made the moment of truth a bit snowed under in comparison to the rest (see what I did there). Mackenzie Foy was absolutely brilliant and Keira Knightley confused me a bit, but other than that, The Nutcracker has a great cast! Jayden Fowora-Knight really stood out for me and Jack Whitehall made me laugh quite a bit.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms gave me all the Christmas feels and I can't wait till it's that time of the year again (my favourite time!). This would be great to watch with your family and friends right next to the Christmas tree. Once again, the graphic really did the trick for me but overall it's a fun and enjoyable movie!

The Little Mermaid
15 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I was expecting something like the original "The Little Mermaid", let me tell you, it's nothing like that. It made me a bit disappointed, but once I let go of the "original story", it was quite enjoyable. I love Poppy Drayton and William Moseley, so it was fun to see them do a movie together. I probably won't watch it again, but I'm rating it with a very solid 6.
