Black Knight (film review)

Film: Black Knight
Year: 2001
Genre: Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy
Starring: Martin Lawrence, Marsha Thomason, Tom Wilkinson
About: Martin Lawrence plays Jamal, an employee in Medieval World amusement park. After sustaining a blow to the head, he awakens to find himself in 14th century England.

My Review:
Having wanted to watch a film that I saw as a child but hadn't managed to see in ages I saw that Black Knight was on Netflix and thought this was the perfect opportunity to see it again. This is my views on the film.

Black Knight is about a man who after falling into a river at his work wakes up in 14th century England not realising that he has done. After a while re realises he is not where he is meant to be and tries to find a way to get himself back home. However, at the same time there is an assassination sent after the king by people who are trying to get the queen in power.

I find this film funny and laughed pretty much throughout which I really liked about this film, I also thought the reactions to being sent back in time and to the 14th century were pretty much how it would be for anyone going back without knowing about it. Also with some action in terms of fight scenes I found this film really enjoyable to watch. Definitely a film that was as good as I remembered it from when I was younger.

I would recommend this film to families who are looking for something fun to watch as well as those who would like a comedy film. Also if you are looking for something easy to watch after a long day then this could be the film for you.

My Rating: 4/5

My Review:
Having been a huge fan of the MCU and being really excited for this movie since Infinity War came out in 2018 I couldn't wait to see this at the midnight release. I have waited a little while before uploading this review and that was so that when spoilers came up it was after the time in which Marvel said it was okay to do so.This is a film which I was so scared to watch but also so excited as well and really didn't want to see come to an end knowing this is the last for some of the characters within the Marvel Universe in which people are…

The Hidden People - Alison Littlewood (book review)

Book: The Hidden People
Author: Alison Littlewood
Genre: Horror, Fantasy, Historical
Published By: Jo Fletcher Books
Published Year: 2016

My Review:
Taking part in the OWL'S Readathon I needed a book which met the prompt of "Plant on the Cover" and after putting a poll on Twitter which had the choice of three different books this is the one that came out on top. As a result I ended up with this book and although seeming interested in it from the back of the book I found that this book did not grab me as much as I wish it did.

The book is about a man who's cousin dies so he goes to try and find out the truth about her death and upon getting to the village of Halfoak finds that the people are really into superstition and believed his cousin to be a fairy and not of this world. However, when his wife gets there he starts to think that maybe there is some truth in the tales the people were saying.

I found that this book was really slow for my personal taste and I couldn't…

Goosebumps: Don't Feed The Vampire - R.L. Stine (book review)

Book: Goosebumps: Please Don't Feed The Vampire
Author: R.L. Stine
Genre: Children's, Horror
Published By: Scholastic
Published Year: 1997

My Review:
Taking part in the OWL'S Readathon a subject I had was Care of Magical Creatures which had the prompt of "Land Animal on the Cover" because of this I thought it would be the perfect time to go back to a book I loved when I was younger called Goosebumps: Please Don't Feed The Vampire. Which I ended up still enjoying even though I am now an adult.

The book is one where the reader is able to make the decisions of the book and from the beginning there is two different routes in which the reader is able to take. The first is a story where the reader becomes a vampire and gets to choose how they deal with becoming one from trying to become human again to also staying a vampire. The other is where the dog becomes a vampire instead!

I personally think that this book is great for engaging readers with letting them choose what…
