My Review:
With the Death Cure coming out to DVD I couldn't resist but to watch the full trilogy from the beginning, starting with the first movie in the trilogy The Maze Runner.

The film is about a boy called Thomas who after brought into the glade is trying to help the boys escape and get out of the maze he has realised that they are in. Not only this but it shows the friendships as well as difficulties that the boys have had while in the glade and the monsters in the maze who are trying to stop them from escaping.

The Maze Runner is a film in which I personally really like and think it is a great movie for teenagers as well as a good film adaptation of a book although different I feel it works really well. Not only this but I feel that it has the right amount of action while also making you feel for the characters in the movie and feel a part of the film itself. I did also like that the end of the film makes you wonder what is next for the people who managed to survive through the maze and the people who manage to get them out of the building in which the teenagers were being kept. This does make me want to watch the other movies and get me excited about what the film adaptations of the films will bring next.

I would recommend The Maze Runner to teenagers who are looking for an action movie to watch and looking for something with an easy to follow story line. I would also recommend this movie to people who are wanting something that is part of a series and want something new to watch that is like The Hunger Games.

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
