Black Panther (film review)

Film: Black Panther
Year: 2018
Genre: Action, Adventure, Sci-fi
Starring: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o
About: T'Challa, the King of Wakanda, rises to the throne in the isolated, technologically advanced African nation, but his claim is challenged by a vengeful outsider who was a childhood victim of T'Challa's father's mistake

My Review: 
As a lover of Marvel comics and superhero films this really excited me having Black Panther finally as a hero which will be recognised by everyone as one of their own and joining the Avengers. With a lot of hype about this film as well I wanted to see if it lived up to it and why this was being called the first of it's kind for a black superhero movie when there is previous black hero's.

As this film follows T'Challa gets to become king of Wakanda you see the struggle in which he is having letting go of his father and not really understanding how to run his country. As well as this you are seeing a group of people who are willing to lose everything for his country by selling technology on which hasn't been seen by the people outwith Wakanda. As this develops you realise that one of those people are T'Challa's cousin and he tries his best to sort out the problems in which this has made for his ruling and becoming the Black Panther.

I think this film is very unique and a film I am glad is getting a lot of praise and getting a lot of publicity, not just as a Marvel movie but also as a superhero film on it's own account. As this is a film that only has two white characters within it and aren't made out to be the make and break of the film, although are key characters. With a lot of films also making everything about white people or making it so they are key it is amazing to see that finally black people have something that is for them and takes into account their history as well. As well as this the film seems to celebrate Africa as a country and doesn't change it into something it isn't and stays true to the tribes which there are making this film even better in my eyes. Making this the first black superhero movie of it's kind and I really hope that this is the first of many.

As well  as this the film is really good as a Marvel movie with the likes of car chases, the advances technology, humor, action and even some romance making this the film in which all Marvel fans were wanting. With the humor not being forced and making sense with the story as well as making the audience on the edge of their seats.

I highly recommend giving this film a watch wither you are a Marvel fan or not as this is so much more than just a Marvel film and is more a celebration of the African culture. I also can't wait till Black Panther is back again in Avengers: Infinity War later on this year! Also remember to stay around till the very end of the credits for the extra scene!

I honestly can't fault this film at all as it really does have everything that a film needs and wants from a Marvel film as well as standing alone perfectly by itself and not needing to know anything about the Marvel universe before this.

My Rating: 5/5

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nt9L1jCKGnE

My Review:
Being excited that there was a Spider-man movie coming out I needed to see it as soon as I could however this film left me feeling kinda disappointed at the end of the film which did upset me and I feel like they rushed over some parts and made other parts just a little too slow for me personally.

I did like that this film showed what happened to everyone since the Blip which happened in the Avengers movies and that even though some people aged the ones who came back were the same age and had to continue life as they had before. This helped to explain what happened with everyone after the events of Endgame and showed how life continued. I also…

Mute (film review)

Film: Mute
Year: 2018
Genre: Mystery, Sci-fi, Thriller
Starring: Alexander Skarsgard, Paul Rudd, Justin Theroux
About: A mute bartender goes up against his city's gangsters in an effort to find out what happened to his missing partner.

My Review: 
Seeing this come up on my recommended for me on Netflix I decided to see if this would be any good. Liking Alexander Skarsgard as an actor, seeing him in a different role than I usually see him in really intrigued me.

The film is about a man called Leo who is a mute and when his girlfriend goes missing tries to find her any way that he can. At the same time the audience is seeing a man who seems to be involved in crime and who is trying to leave the country to go back to America.

I found that this film had a slower plot than I would have personally liked and it could have been more in depth with the movie however it was a good watch that I would see again. I also think that this highlights Alexander Skarsgard's acting ability as he is a m…

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask - Akira Himekawa (book review)

Majora's Mask is the second graphic novel from the Legend of Zelda series by Akira Himekawa. As a Zelda fan myself and liking the game that this is based off of I found this book really enjoyable. It changes parts of the game in order to get it faster paced for the book however this doesn't fault the book at all. Not only this but the graphics within this book are really good and made me love the book even more while also making me have the music from the game in my head.

The book also has a bonus story at the end which is about the making of the mask and how the mask came into being, I found this really fitting and something that is not only original but something that needed to be added to the book. As in the games it doesn't tell you how the mask was made or the story behind it this bonus story seemed like a more fulfilling piece of the story and tied up any loose ends such as how the mask came to be and why it is cursed.

As a Zelda fan I can't fault this book and …
