Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sE7DYcn8X-0

My Review:
Wanting to see an animation movie I had previously not seen before I decided to have a look on Netflix and came across the film Spark so decided to give it a watch and see if it was any good.

The film is about a teenage monkey called Spark who decides to go on a mission after having been annoyed that he is always left at home, however ends up in the kingdom on the planet of Bana. Finding out that the evil Zhong wants to destroy another planet Spark along with his friends Chunk and Vix they try to stop the evil plans.

This film surprised me being better than I expected however not a perfect children's movie. This film did make me laugh and did answer a lot of questions like why they live on a shard of trash and why his friends are not letting him go on adventures with them even though he is still only a teenager. I did think that the very simplistic storyline thoughout the movie was good as well as it made it really easy to watch before bed and the watcher doesn't need to put a lot of thought into what they are watching. This film did also make me laugh at points which was god but I feel the movie could have done more within it to engage the audience a little more than it did.

I would recommend this movie for families and children who are looking for an adventure story and one that is very easy to follow.

My Rating: 4/5

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 student was getting close to…

My Review:
Having been contacted by Jude himself about this movie I was rather surprised but excited to review The Incantation which comes out in America later this month. Having only seen the trailer I was not sure what to expect but glad I gave this a watch.

The film is about a girl from America who moves to her families castle in France and is met by a vicar who tells her the rules of the household with three rules: no going upstairs, no uninvited guests and keeping decorum. As she stays however she starts getting nightmares about a young girl who she starts seeing t…

Mysteries and Secrets of Magic - C.J.S. Thompson (book review)

Book: Mysteries and Secrets of Magic
Author: C.J.S. Thompson
Published By: Senate
Published Year: 1927

My Review: 
As this book is a non-fiction book about magic I did find this rather interesting to read however it seemed like this novel was more of a tester to see what kind of topic you would be most interested in with it only having short amounts on various topics such as: Supernatural Beings, Greek and Roman Magic, Magical Numbers, The Grimoires or Handbook of Black Magic, Magic in Shakespeare's Plays and many more.

This did however teach me about magic that I didn't know about and now want to look more into as a result of this book and discover more about the magic of the past as well if there is any use of magic in the world now as we know it in 2018 almost 100 years after this book was first published.

I would recommend this book to those who would like to know more about magic however don't know what they would like to learn as this will help you know what aspects of magi…
