My Review: 
Being a Monty Python fan for years I couldn't resist but watch my favourite thing of Monty Python's and that is Monty Python and the Holy Grail which was released in 1975.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail is about King Arthur and his search for the Holy Grail with the search and help of his knights of the round table.

This in my opinion is one of the funniest films ever made and one that is a classic for a reason as it is not a forgettable movie. With the knights that say ni, coconuts to make the sound of horse hooves and the black knight are just a few things from this movie which really makes it stand out. I also find that this film has a character for everyone to like which makes this film every single time you see it better than the last as you can notice things you never noticed before.

I did mark this only as a 4/5 however due to seeing it so many times I was able to quote it too well and saw all of the jokes coming so it didn't surprise me as it used to. However I do recommend everyone to see this movie at least once as you will not regret it! 

My Rating: 4/5

Moon Over Soho - Ben Aaronovitch (book review) *contains spoilers*

Book: Moon Over Soho Author: Ben Aaronovitch Genre: Crime, Fantasy, Mystery Published By: Gollancz Published Year: 2011 My Review: Having my colleague let me borrow the second book in the Peter Grant series I was looking forward to see how they would progress from the first book and what supernatural beings that they would have to defeat now. Moon Over Soho  is about jazz musicians who end up dying not long after coming off of the stage and seeming healthy at the time. Feeling that something is wrong they call in Peter Grant to help with the investigation and discover that something supernatural was going on. While this is happening there is a new threat arriving called The Faceless One who is also a wizard but no-one remembers what they look like. Will Peter be able to stop the threats facing London? Personally, I liked this book a lot more than the first book as it was already established also there was more supernatural beings introduced and to worry about in London th

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUdy0Cu3f_o My Review: Looking through my movies and wanting something based in space to watch I decided to put on Supernova which is a film in which I couldn't remember at all. Not remembering it made me feel like this was a new movie to me and I did keep me watching all of the way through easily. I like that this film showed how the device in which they discover is able to make people stronger and able to make them younger as well. By also having this device able to reattach body parts it makes the audience worried about how they will get rid o

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4F3Sn-Xzzo My Review: Wanting a style of film I don't usually watch but do enjoy I decided to watch the stalker movie that is My Teacher, My Obsession  which is based on an English teacher who starts at a new school. However, when one of the students gets obsessed with him she will do anything to be with him including secluding him from everyone else. I liked the foreshadowing at the beginning of the movie which matched up to the ending very well and shows how throughout the movie that this was coming up. I also liked how the film showed how the stude
