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

My Review:
Being excited that there was a Spider-man movie coming out I needed to see it as soon as I could however this film left me feeling kinda disappointed at the end of the film which did upset me and I feel like they rushed over some parts and made other parts just a little too slow for me personally.

I did like that this film showed what happened to everyone since the Blip which happened in the Avengers movies and that even though some people aged the ones who came back were the same age and had to continue life as they had before. This helped to explain what happened with everyone after the events of Endgame and showed how life continued. I also…

Mute (film review)

Film: Mute
Year: 2018
Genre: Mystery, Sci-fi, Thriller
Starring: Alexander Skarsgard, Paul Rudd, Justin Theroux
About: A mute bartender goes up against his city's gangsters in an effort to find out what happened to his missing partner.

My Review: 
Seeing this come up on my recommended for me on Netflix I decided to see if this would be any good. Liking Alexander Skarsgard as an actor, seeing him in a different role than I usually see him in really intrigued me.

The film is about a man called Leo who is a mute and when his girlfriend goes missing tries to find her any way that he can. At the same time the audience is seeing a man who seems to be involved in crime and who is trying to leave the country to go back to America.

I found that this film had a slower plot than I would have personally liked and it could have been more in depth with the movie however it was a good watch that I would see again. I also think that this highlights Alexander Skarsgard's acting ability as he is a m…

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask - Akira Himekawa (book review)

Majora's Mask is the second graphic novel from the Legend of Zelda series by Akira Himekawa. As a Zelda fan myself and liking the game that this is based off of I found this book really enjoyable. It changes parts of the game in order to get it faster paced for the book however this doesn't fault the book at all. Not only this but the graphics within this book are really good and made me love the book even more while also making me have the music from the game in my head.

The book also has a bonus story at the end which is about the making of the mask and how the mask came into being, I found this really fitting and something that is not only original but something that needed to be added to the book. As in the games it doesn't tell you how the mask was made or the story behind it this bonus story seemed like a more fulfilling piece of the story and tied up any loose ends such as how the mask came to be and why it is cursed.

As a Zelda fan I can't fault this book and …
