My Review:
Having looked in the store Cex for some movies I saw this film and was grabbed by the cover, so without reading the back of the box I decided to buy it, bring it home and give it a watch!

The film is about three people who are chosen by the crow of a shaman to go to a land that is promised to have food for them as the animals have disappeared and their people are dying. However, when the shaman turns evil and tries to kill the three young warriors will they be able to help their community or will they lose?

I found that this film was a good watch and kept my interest all the way through which I was glad about and didn't find that the film was as long as what it was which was another bonus. With a good story line about survival and how one of the three was starting to become a shaman himself however not realising his powers was a great extra for the audience seeing the character grow within himself and who he was always meant to be. As the audience was also able to see what was still happening in their village as well and seeing what the evil shaman was doing and planning made the film make sense and understand what they were travelling for and what was happening to the people who stayed behind.

I can't really fault the movie, I just thought it was good and rather a forgettable movie which did not make me go wow afterwards. This would be brilliant for children however and those who like animation films that are not meant to be humorous like most children's movies are.

My Rating: 3/5

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

The Girl With All The Gifts (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: The Girl With All The Gifts Year: 2016 Genre: Drama, Horror, Sci-fi Directed By: Colm McCarthy Starring: Sennia Nanua, Fisayo Akinade, Dominique Tipper About:  A scientist and a teacher living in a dystopian future embark on a journey of survival with a special young girl named Melanie. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjGkB_oWTe0 My Review: Having been interested in this movie for a while and it really catching my eye lately especially with it being on Netflix I couldn't resist but to give this a watch. This is something in which I had better expectations for than it gave me and seemed a rather forgettable movie even though it wasn't a bad watch. I liked that The Girl With All The Gifts started with showing how the children were taught and kept in separate rooms however made the audience wonder why they were kept that way when they seemed like normal children. Later discovering that they were zombies and that there was a zombie break all over the w

A Letter For The King- Tonke Dragt (book review) *contains spoilers*

Book: The Letter For The King Author: Tonke Dragt Genre: fiction, adventure Published By: Pushkin Children's Books Published Year: 1962 My Review: I managed to get this book from NetGalley for an honest review and I am so glad that I did choose this book to read. This book is put into a prologue and eight different sections which indicate where in the story the characters are as well as chapter titles to make the reader have some idea what the chapter they are reading about. Prologue: In this part of the book the reader is made to understand the past of Dagonaut also how the knights are appointed to the king and why there are five boys in a chapel just outside of the town who is doing a vigil. This is a great way to let the reader understand how the following boys are where they are and makes the reader wonder which of these boys are going to be going on an adventure and how if they are so close to the king this would be a long book.
