Ghost In The Shell (film review)

Film: Ghost In The Shell
Year: 2017
Genre: Action, Crime, Drama, Sci-fi
Starring:  Scarlett Johansson, Pilou Asbæk, Takeshi Kitano
About: In the near future, Major is the first of her kind: A human saved from a terrible crash, who is cyber-enhanced to be a perfect soldier devoted to stopping the world's most dangerous criminals

My Review: 
Having been wanting to watch Ghost In The Shell since it first came out in the cinema I was glad to be able to get my hands on the DVD and finally give this a watch and decided to share my views on it.

This film follows Major who is a machine with a human mind who is used to be a weapon. However, when she comes across a glitch in a robot she starts to see things that aren't there and wondering why this is happening. As this happens she starts to discover her past and how she was not the first machine to have a human mind!

I found this film really interesting to watch, having not read the comic books before by Shirow Masamune. This film continuously kept me guessing what was going to happen next which I loved about it. There was also a lot of action in this which made sense with the movie and didn't just come across as unnecessary which was something I really liked. With also having different characters with completely different personalities it was easy to like each of the characters in different ways and not find that they are far too similar to other people.

I did find however, that sometimes the subtitles that came up went a little too quickly so wasn't able to fully read what was being translated. This mostly wasn't an issue but did make me wonder if I missed anything significant at the time.

Overall, I found this film really well done and I love that it answered a lot of questions that you had throughout the film as well as giving way to make a second one if they so wish to do so. I am glad I have finally watched this film and would recommend it to sci-fi fans!

My Rating: 4/5

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 …
