My Review:
Wanting to watch a Marvel movie I couldn't resist but decide to watch Captain America: Civil War which I have not seen since it was in the cinema back in 2016. This is my views on the movie.

The film is about when the government want to own the Avengers, Captain America and some of the other Avengers refuse to do so. However, when at a United Nations meeting there is an explosion and Bucky Barnes is accused of causing it Captain America and his friends will do anything to stop Iron Man.

This film is action from the very start and this makes me really like the film and be drawn into it almost instantly. Not only this but by causing a drift between two of the characters; Captain America and Iron Man it makes the fans need to choose who's side they are on and show more of a political edge to the Marvel Universe which hasn't happened previously. Also by adding in new characters such as Spiderman and Black Panther the fans are excited to see what happens next for both of these characters and want to see more of them making this film far more exciting.

This film is one that Marvel fans should not miss as it includes most of the characters within the MCU while also adding new ones which leads to the Black Panther and Spiderman solo movies. This is a film in which is my favourite within the Captain America franchise and with it ending with still Tony Stark and Steve Rodgers not on talking terms it leaves the watcher wondering what is going to happen next.

I would highly recommend this movie to fans of Marvel and to those who are wanting to see a film with a lot of action.

My Rating: 4/5

I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained. Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the b

The Girl With All The Gifts (film review) *contains spoilers*

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjGkB_oWTe0 My Review: Having been interested in this movie for a while and it really catching my eye lately especially with it being on Netflix I couldn't resist but to give this a watch. This is something in which I had better expectations for than it gave me and seemed a rather forgettable movie even though it wasn't a bad watch. I liked that The Girl With All The Gifts started with showing how the children were taught and kept in separate rooms however made the audience wonder why they were kept that way when they seemed like normal children. Later discovering that they were zombies and that there was a zombie break all over the w

A Letter For The King- Tonke Dragt (book review) *contains spoilers*

Book: The Letter For The King Author: Tonke Dragt Genre: fiction, adventure Published By: Pushkin Children's Books Published Year: 1962 My Review: I managed to get this book from NetGalley for an honest review and I am so glad that I did choose this book to read. This book is put into a prologue and eight different sections which indicate where in the story the characters are as well as chapter titles to make the reader have some idea what the chapter they are reading about. Prologue: In this part of the book the reader is made to understand the past of Dagonaut also how the knights are appointed to the king and why there are five boys in a chapel just outside of the town who is doing a vigil. This is a great way to let the reader understand how the following boys are where they are and makes the reader wonder which of these boys are going to be going on an adventure and how if they are so close to the king this would be a long book.
