Netflix Movies #2

A Long Way Down

My favourite book was turned into a film and it took me way too long to watch it! I was scared it wouldn't do the book justice but I needn't have worried as it's rocketed to the top of my favourite films list. I wasn't aware of Imogen Poots before watching it but she is incredible as Jess. Despite being about depression, this is a brilliantly real, uplifting film.

Wreck-It Ralph

This is a genius concept for a movie. It's kind of an anti fate kind of thing. Ralph doesn't want to be the bad guy and quite literally goes about changing his 'destiny'. Vanellope Von Schweetz is potentially the cutest character ever created! I fully intend to recommend this to everybody I know who hasn't seen it. Such a feel good film!

Iron Man 3

When Tony Stark's world is torn apart by a formidable terrorist called the Mandarin, he starts an odyssey of rebuilding and retribution. Source

I'm not sure I've seen the 2nd movie but you really don't need to have. This is set after the first Avengers movie so he's still dealing with that. It's kind of about how the past can come back to haunt you whilst also being about the strength of friendship. Iron Man is one of my fave heroes because of how sassy he is. 

I'm slowly making my way through the movies on Netflix. Have you seen any of these? What were your thoughts?
