My Review:
Going back to the first movie I ever fell in love with however haven't seen in years I decided to put on A Bugs Life which came out in 1998 when I was only 2/3 years old! As a favourite of mine when I was younger I was scared to watch this again in-case it didn't live up to what I had remembered and loved.

A Bugs Life is about an ant called Flik who after getting rid of all the food the ants collected for the grasshoppers goes out to try and find some warriors to try and help defeat them. However, when he recruits circus bugs he needs to come up with a new idea to stand up to the grasshoppers.

This film is honestly amazing to myself, I am not sure wither it was because it was a childhood favourite but I couldn't stop smiling watching this and found myself feeling a lot younger as well. This film also makes me laugh with the humour in which has always made me laugh. One of my favourite things about this movie is that at the end of the movie they have a blooper reel even though it is an animation movie. This movie also makes it so that bugs are likable which is something I also like as it is not normally a living creature in which people respect showing that we should accept bugs and different people how we would expect to be treated. Not only this but the film shows that even though things might not always go as you planned and things can go badly for you if you keep trying then anything is possible! Which is a great message for children.

I highly recommend this film to children and those who want to re-watch a film from their childhood as this film is just as good as I remember.

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…
