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

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

Walko About:  A young American girl has a chance of a lifetime to visit her ancestors castle in the south of France, only to find that her family is hiding deep, dark secrets about their nefarious past, far away from prying eyes. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EARmKIxjxQ&t=82s 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 wh
