This came out a while ago, so I'm sorry that it's taken me such a long time to get around to reviewing it. But either way, here's my review!

The movie is about three girls who are high school seniors (in the UK, they would be in college about to go to university) and they've made a pact to lose their virginity on prom night. However, they each have a parent who is overprotective. When these three parents find out about their daughter's pact, they put a plan in motion to stop their children before they cross the finish line.

I absolutely loved this film.

I've seen a lot of coming-of-age films, and this one was definitely one of the most fun ones. The idea of losing your virginity is a big deal to the parents, but to the kids it just seems like a right of passage - something to do before they head off to college. But whether it's a big deal or not, the film isn't focused on whether or not this happens for them, which is what makes it fun.

I saw this the day that it came out in the UK - I wanted to see it since I first saw the trailer months ago, because it just looked like a nail-biting, thrilling movie with a healthy influx of romance, and that really excited me.

It's about two people called Tami and Richard who meet unexpectedly and fall in love extremely quickly. When they get an offer to sail a family friend's boat from Tahiti to California for a hefty reward, they go for it, taking a romantic journey through calm seas. However, they don't count on sailing into one of the worst hurricanes in recorded history. So when Tami wakes up alone, she automatically thinks the worst. Even after she finds Richard, she can't let go of the feeling that they're going to die. However, due to Richard's horrific injuries, she knows that it's up to her. She can give up hope, or she could find the strength within herself to keep them alive, no matter what.

I thought this film was amazing.

I don't know why, but it feels like it's been ages since I've done a Favourites post! Either way, I have a lot of stuff to talk about this month, so I'm just gonna get started.

Favourite Movie (1): Blockers


I've written a review on this that I'm gonna put up in the next few days, probably sometime next week, so I won't talk about it too much here, but I loved this movie. It was funny, touching, and I think more people should be talking about it.

Favourite Movie (2): Dear John

Tomb Raider | Film Review

I can't even remember when I saw this, but I'm finally reviewing it!

It's about a woman called Lara Croft, who is the daughter of a man who disappeared years ago. While everyone believes that he is dead, Lara refuses to admit that her father is gone. Hoping to find him herself, Lara goes to his last known location, hoping to find proof of life. However, his last-known location just happens to be a tomb off the coast of Japan. Lara must use everything that her father has ever taught her to decipher her way through the tomb and find out the truth about her father's disappearance.

I still don't know how I feel about this film. I don't know how much it's based on either the video game, or on Angelina Jolie's version because I haven't seen either of them - this film was my first experience of this whole world.

I have to preface this by saying that Alicia Vikander was amazing in the role. I think she's pretty much amazing in everything she…
