Ready Player One (film review)

Film: Ready Player One
Year: 2018
Genre: Action, Adventure, Sci-fi
Starring: Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn
About: When the creator of a virtual reality world called the OASIS dies, he releases a video in which he challenges all OASIS users to find his Easter Egg, which will give the finder his fortune.

My Review:
Having heard amazing things about this film and that it has a lot of references to other movies, books and games I couldn't help but go to the cinema at the first opportunity I had to go and see this film.

Ready Player One is about a group of people who are in a virtual reality game called the OASIS and tries to find the three keys in which the dead creator has made to obtain his fortune and control of the OASIS. However, another company are also after the winnings who are a rival and go after the people in the real world as well as in the virtual world.

I personally loved this film, with loads of references to books, movies and games this made me really excited throughout the film as a fan of most of the references that they made. As well as this having it in a virtual reality because there isn't anything in the real world I thought was an amazing concept as virtual reality is becoming a thing of the present time we are currently living in and could be how the world really becomes in the next couple of decades. I did find hat the acting choices were also done really well and having seen the film I couldn't think of a better cast.

With making an overall message showing that we need to take more of an interest and be more in the real world instead of virtual world which I thought was really fitting for a world which is now being more online and is how most people find new friends etc. I would highly recommend this film to everyone as it has something for everybody wither it's love, adventure, animation and comedy all in one movie.

I will definitely be now checking out the book and really hope it is as good as the film or even better than it! One of my favourite movies of 2018 so far!

My Rating: 5/5

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…
