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:
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 …
