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 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 student was getting close to…

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 who she starts seeing t…

Mysteries and Secrets of Magic - C.J.S. Thompson (book review)

Book: Mysteries and Secrets of Magic
Author: C.J.S. Thompson
Published By: Senate
Published Year: 1927

My Review: 
As this book is a non-fiction book about magic I did find this rather interesting to read however it seemed like this novel was more of a tester to see what kind of topic you would be most interested in with it only having short amounts on various topics such as: Supernatural Beings, Greek and Roman Magic, Magical Numbers, The Grimoires or Handbook of Black Magic, Magic in Shakespeare's Plays and many more.

This did however teach me about magic that I didn't know about and now want to look more into as a result of this book and discover more about the magic of the past as well if there is any use of magic in the world now as we know it in 2018 almost 100 years after this book was first published.

I would recommend this book to those who would like to know more about magic however don't know what they would like to learn as this will help you know what aspects of magi…
