Tomb Raider (film review)

Film: Tomb Raider
Year: 2018
Genre: Action, Adventure
Starring: Alicia Vikander, Dominic West, Walton Goggins
About: Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, must push herself beyond her limits when she finds herself on the island where her father disappeared.

My Review: 
Hearing that a new Tomb Raider was coming out rather worried me, as a lover of the games and a reboot as well this could be done really well or like a lot of games turned movies be not the film we as fans are wanting. As a result I went to the cinema to see what the reboot would be like.

The movie follows Lara Croft who after seven years of her fathers disappearance starts to look into the puzzle which her father had left behind for her. As a result she ends up going to an island to start looking for the answers about her father and find out what he was really up to when he left her. While doing this Lara finds out about the truth about her first tomb.

At the beginning of Tomb Raider I was worried about this not being good especially with it seeming to do absolutely nothing to do with the film. However, after the first half an hour or so and Lara starts looking into her fathers disappearance the film did pick up and become something which was very enjoyable to watch. With a lot of action and adventure in which you would be looking for with a Tomb Raider movie.

I did find this film very predictable however which did not keep me excited throughout the movie which did disappoint me and it did seem like parts of the film was just dragging on. This was something which in future films hopefully won't be so bad especially as the foundation for the future movies in the Tomb Raider movies is already established.

Overall, I did enjoy the film and really can't wait to see the ones coming next and hope that they stay more with the games in order to please both Tomb Raider film fans as well as gamers. I also can't wait to see what happens next within the movies and I am glad that they started with a good foundation and how Lara follows her fathers footsteps. I would recommend this film to those who like Tomb Raider as well as for people who love an adventure film. 

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…
