Grown Ups (film review)

Film: Grown Ups
Year: 2010
Genre: Comedy
Director: Dennis Dugan
Starring: Adam Sandler, Salma Hayek, Kevin James
About: After their high school basketball coach passes away, five good friends and former teammates reunite for a Fourth of July holiday weekend

My Review:
Wanting some comedy to watch and something I hadn't seen in ages I saw that Grown Ups was on Netflix and couldn't resist giving it a watch.

The film is about a group of friends who are reunited because of the death of their old basketball coach so decide to hire the cabin next to the river so that they could have a weekend together to catch up and the children could get to know each other. As this happens they realise that the children don't know what to do without technology and start to try and bring them back to being children while bringing out the children in themselves as well. However, when an apposing team who they beat as children wants a rematch some thirty years later will they play the game?

I found this film a really good watch and it did make me laugh, which was my intention when walking into this movie. I feel it also has a family for everyone wither it is the single man who is by himself, the big Hollywood family who although slightly grounded seems to be really snobby, a hippy family who is really into nature and a couple of others. I thought this film was good for a quick laugh and something which is really easy to watch and follow the story line of.

I would recommend this movie to those who would like a relaxing comedy film to watch and can have a laugh without having to really think into anything.

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 …
