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

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask - Akira Himekawa (book review)

Majora's Mask is the second graphic novel from the Legend of Zelda series by Akira Himekawa. As a Zelda fan myself and liking the game that this is based off of I found this book really enjoyable. It changes parts of the game in order to get it faster paced for the book however this doesn't fault the book at all. Not only this but the graphics within this book are really good and made me love the book even more while also making me have the music from the game in my head.

The book also has a bonus story at the end which is about the making of the mask and how the mask came into being, I found this really fitting and something that is not only original but something that needed to be added to the book. As in the games it doesn't tell you how the mask was made or the story behind it this bonus story seemed like a more fulfilling piece of the story and tied up any loose ends such as how the mask came to be and why it is cursed.

As a Zelda fan I can't fault this book and …

My Review:
Being excited that there was a Spider-man movie coming out I needed to see it as soon as I could however this film left me feeling kinda disappointed at the end of the film which did upset me and I feel like they rushed over some parts and made other parts just a little too slow for me personally.

I did like that this film showed what happened to everyone since the Blip which happened in the Avengers movies and that even though some people aged the ones who came back were the same age and had to continue life as they had before. This helped to explain what happened with everyone after the events of Endgame and showed how life continued. I also…

Time Travel - Roxanne San Jose (book review)

Book: Time Travel
Author: Roxanne San Jose
Genre: Sci-fi
Published By: Avid Publishing LLC
Published Year: 2019

My Review:
Being given a free copy of Time Travel for an honest review I decided to give this a read. Having thought it sounded interesting I was looking forward to seeing how this book would go forward and although this book had some good ideas I don't feel like this book was fully finished.

Time Travel is about a girl who invents a time machine and when coming home from the future finds that her boyfriend has went to the past and gotten himself stuck there so tries to get him back while making friends along the way.

I liked that this book had that when the couple went to the future and came across a robot went on an adventure with it after knowing it had been abandoned for a long time. Not only this but by having the main girl character Angelie come back for the robot when her boyfriend goes missing and asks for his help was really sweet and really helped to connect those ch…
