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

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.
