My Review:
Having wanted to go and see the new Mission Impossible movie however having not seen the others in years I decided to watch the previous movies starting from the very beginning.

The film is about an American spy called Ethan who after his team gets killed ends up being tracked down by the main organisation of spies for being a mole. However, Ethan ends up trying to save the rest of the spies from having their identities acknowledged and find the real mole within the company.

I personally really like this film and find that the theme tune to me is the definition of a spy tune and will always be the one that goes straight to my head. The theme tune always makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside and like a little child which just makes me really happy. I also like that the film follows Ethan and how he deals with his crew getting murdered and how he comes to find out who the real person who is infiltrating the company really is and why they are doing it. I always find that this film makes me think it is older than the 90's but really still grabs my attention and makes me constantly want to see what happens next within the movie and how Ethan will actually find the real mole. I do like that you can see how the mission's are done as well and how much thought has went into making them more original than some other movies but stays true to the spy movie's which everyone loves.

I do sometimes however don't like the way that the camera angles have been done which rather distracts me and some of the acting seems to be a bit off for a scene or part of a film such as with over acting at some points. However, overall this doesn't bother me as it is an older film and without as much CGI as modern day it is to be expected.

Overall, a great film to a start of a very iconic series of films and one that lets the audience know more about Ethan and understand him as a person which is a great thing for the audience to see. I would definitely recommend this movie to those who like action films and are wanting a spy movie as this is one of the best films and series of spy movies in my opinion.

My Rating: 4/5

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…
