The Greatest Showman (Film Review)

Film: The Greatest Showman
Year: 2017
Genre: Biography, Musical, Drama
Cast: Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Zac Efron
About: Celebrates the birth of show business, and tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.

My Review: 
As someone who only really likes musicals that are more of a horror nature this film really peaked my interest as it was to do with show business. With a cast I had grew up watching and becoming a fan of I had to see if this film was as good as I thought it would be and I was not disappointed at all. This film has an original soundtrack that not only inspired me in my real life but also that made me feel exactly what the characters were feeling.
This film follows Hugh Jackman as P.T. Barnum who was the first person to ever create a circus and do a style of entertainment that was not of the norm. As someone who was not aware of him and did not know his story this really inspired me as he came from nothing and made, every obstacle he had into a positive thing he could work on and never giving up. As you see the characters grow and the circus grow in the theater and how after a long time it ended up in a tent which is how people of today would mostly know the circus.
This film really inspired me and told me not to give up on my dreams no matter what obstacles get in my way and to always take every negative in my stride and to take a look at what I can do to make this a positive. I would highly recommend this film to everyone with an amazing cast, soundtrack and acting that really will inspire you.

I rate this film a 5/5 as I couldn't fault this at all and I am already desperate to see it again!

Moon Over Soho - Ben Aaronovitch (book review) *contains spoilers*

Book: Moon Over Soho Author: Ben Aaronovitch Genre: Crime, Fantasy, Mystery Published By: Gollancz Published Year: 2011 My Review: Having my colleague let me borrow the second book in the Peter Grant series I was looking forward to see how they would progress from the first book and what supernatural beings that they would have to defeat now. Moon Over Soho  is about jazz musicians who end up dying not long after coming off of the stage and seeming healthy at the time. Feeling that something is wrong they call in Peter Grant to help with the investigation and discover that something supernatural was going on. While this is happening there is a new threat arriving called The Faceless One who is also a wizard but no-one remembers what they look like. Will Peter be able to stop the threats facing London? Personally, I liked this book a lot more than the first book as it was already established also there was more supernatural beings introduced and to worry about in London th

I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained. Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the b

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4F3Sn-Xzzo My Review: Wanting a style of film I don't usually watch but do enjoy I decided to watch the stalker movie that is My Teacher, My Obsession  which is based on an English teacher who starts at a new school. However, when one of the students gets obsessed with him she will do anything to be with him including secluding him from everyone else. I liked the foreshadowing at the beginning of the movie which matched up to the ending very well and shows how throughout the movie that this was coming up. I also liked how the film showed how the stude
