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

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

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

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
