My Review:
Having wanted to see Home Again in the cinema however, never getting around to it. I was glad that this got put onto Netflix so I could finally see this movie especially as it has Reese Witherspoon who I love as an actress and Michael Sheen who is an actor who I really enjoy watching in everything I have seen him in.

The film is about a woman who splits with her husband and moves back to L.A. however when out for her fortieth birthday ends up coming home with her friends and three young film makers. Upon discovering that they had nowhere to stay she invites them to stay in her guest house and ends up creating a relationship with them which will change everything for her and her children.

I found that this film was rather cute to watch and rather original in the way that the film was done for a romantic-comedy movie not only showing the romance but how the three young men effect her family life and her life now as she is broken up with her husband who is still in New York. This film was good at showing how some people are needed for you as friends in ways you didn't feel you needed someone such as with social anxiety and feeling depressed to help take some of the pressure off of you as a person and in time slowly get better. Also with an ending in which had a lot of warmth to the movie and wasn't the cliche happy ever after ending this made me glad to have seen it.

I did find that the film was really easy to follow so if you are looking for something really easy to follow then this would be a good movie for you. I did find that the acting at points was rather bland to watch which did effect my rating of the film overall. I did feel like if the audience got a little more insight of the characters rather than the main characters all the way through then this would have added more depth and been even more enjoyable to watch.

Overall, this is a really sweet rom-com which people would enjoy if they are looking for a film in which is really easy to follow and something to relax to at the end of the day, however would be forgettable compared to other rom-coms. A film I would watch again however as it is a rather fun movie.

My Rating: 3/5

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 …

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…

Time Travel - Roxanne San Jose (book review)

Book: Time Travel
Author: Roxanne San Jose
Genre: Sci-fi
Published By: Avid Publishing LLC
Published Year: 2019

My Review:
Being given a free copy of Time Travel for an honest review I decided to give this a read. Having thought it sounded interesting I was looking forward to seeing how this book would go forward and although this book had some good ideas I don't feel like this book was fully finished.

Time Travel is about a girl who invents a time machine and when coming home from the future finds that her boyfriend has went to the past and gotten himself stuck there so tries to get him back while making friends along the way.

I liked that this book had that when the couple went to the future and came across a robot went on an adventure with it after knowing it had been abandoned for a long time. Not only this but by having the main girl character Angelie come back for the robot when her boyfriend goes missing and asks for his help was really sweet and really helped to connect those ch…
