My Review:
Having a look on Netflix for a movie to watch I came across Origin Wars which was named The Osiris Child everywhere else online! Liking the actor Kellan Lutz I couldn't resist giving this a watch.

The film is about a man who is from off-world and is told that they are going to destroy the planet in twenty-four hours goes down to the surface to find his daughter who is in the city. Along the way he meets a man called Sy and with his help and the help of two others he tries to save his daughter from the end of the world. However, after finding out about the creatures in which are also on the surface he must be overly careful!

I found myself really enjoying this movie, with great  acting throughout it and put into parts so when it does go to the jail scenes and the past of Sy it makes sense with the movie as well as the present time of the story that the watcher is seeing. I thought that the creatures of the movie did look like real life Golem's from Pokemon though which I couldn't stop seeing after I had first noticed it, however this only made me want to watch it so much more, also showing how the creatures came about and how they are created was something that I was glad that the movie had showed as it answered a lot of questions as well as scaring the watcher. I thought this film was also good at showing the backstory of the characters so that the watcher could connect to them better and it worked as the watcher could really feel for Sy once we had found out more about his character, why he was put into prison and why his character behaves as he does. The ending of this movie also surprised me not as I couldn't see it coming but as how it was played out which was a really nice thing to see and made me want a second movie or at least to watch the movie again.

As an independent movie from Australia I could not recommend this film more highly, it has a lot of aspects from other films however it is a movie which from the beginning to the very end had me engaged and wanting to know what was going to happen next. I would recommend this movie to those who are fans of sci-fi movies and wanting an action movie as well.

My Rating: 5/5

My Review:
Wanting to start watching Christmas movies with it being the middle of December I thought I would start with a movie in which was on Netflix which has been on my list recently called Elliot The Littlest Reindeer. With a cast of voice actors in which I already liked I hoped that this would be something I would enjoy and I am glad I was not mistaken as the movie ended up being rather cute and something I enjoyed more than I expected.

I thought by showing how Santa's reindeer was able to retire and have other reindeer take their place was rather a good concept especially as it showed how…

My Review:
From the moment that this was released onto Netflix I was excited about this movie especially as it seemed to be different from the usual Christmas movies in which have come out before. From my excitement I was scared that maybe I had hyped it up a little too much for myself and I wasn't going to enjoy it as much as I thought but I am so glad I was wrong. I loved this movie and it was different from other films I had seen and made me captivated throughout and make me feel like this is a film in which everyone needs to see and e…

The Monster Who Wasn't - T.C. Shelley (book review)

Book: The Monster Who Wasn't
Author: T.C. Shelley
Genre: Children's, Fantasy, Adventure
Published By: Bloomsbury
Published Year: 2019

My Review:
Having noticed this in a book shop I decided to go to my local library and reserve a copy in order to read it. Luckily it arrived rather quickly for me so I was able to start reading this a lot sooner than I had planned and as a result decided to also give it a review.

The book is about a child who is born in the underworld however is born with not only the last sigh from the man dying but also a babies laughter which makes the monster come across more human. Trying to stay hidden from the troll king who is trying to use the child he is trying to keep hidden but also finding out about family and maybe he just isn't a monster at all.

I thought that The Monster Who Wasn't was well written and made me want to know more about it right from the start, by having the gargoyles as creatures who accept the child for who he is and try to kee…
