My Review:
Having loved the first movie when I was younger and impatiently waiting for a sequel I was so excited when the second The Incredibles movie came out after 14 years!

The film is about how a man is trying to bring back superhero's and make them legal again and has a plan for making it happen which is by using Elastagirl in order to save the lives of the public again and this time by showing the superhero's point of view by camera's in their suits. As this happens a new villain arrives called Screenslaver who would hypnotise people under their control!

I personally loved this movie so much and enjoyed how before the movie there was a short movie called Bao which was about a dumpling which was growing up and how it effected the mum which I found really touching however did get a little confused by the ending of it. Overall a great short film however and one I was glad that they added to the movie.

I also loved how the start of The Incredibles 2 went perfectly with the ending of the first movie linking it together perfectly and not leaving the audience who had seen the first one wondering what had happened with the Underminer. I also really liked how unlike the first movie this one based itself on Elatagirl being the hero and saving everyone and hoping to get superhero's legal again while Bob stayed at home to look after the children, showing that woman do not have to be the only one who stays at home and looks after the children but men can as well. As the audience sees JackJack's powers come into light again and this time with the family knowing about them it was humorous to see all of his powers and how Bob dealt with them. With also the teenage angst that you have with Violet after Bob by accident erased her from her crushes mind it was a great film which all ages could relate to and have a laugh at making it a perfect family movie. The action throughout the movie as well was brilliantly done and with the new superhero's that the audience gets introduced to was a good way of showing how newer hero's are scared to come out of hiding but with the right leader they would stand up and try to save the world and change the laws against them. Also with hidden messages in it as well such as that we focus on the screen so much in modern life that we are getting taken over by what the media are telling us and that people need to wake up to what is happening around them and that even though the government is taking over all the laws and making it harder for people to live there is still a way to fight for you rights as a person and through peaceful protest and without violence, I thought this was a great message that the world currently needs in 2018.

I personally couldn't fault this movie except that there wasn't really much to do with the Underminer and I hope that they do make a third movie about him as he doesn't get captured in this movie and is still a threat.

I would highly recommend this movie to everybody as it has the right amount of humor which will make you laugh out loud, action to match the first movie and a message which has a lot of meaning in the current times. I can't wait to see this movie again already!

My Rating:  5/5

My Review:
Having been a huge fan of the MCU and being really excited for this movie since Infinity War came out in 2018 I couldn't wait to see this at the midnight release. I have waited a little while before uploading this review and that was so that when spoilers came up it was after the time in which Marvel said it was okay to do so.This is a film which I was so scared to watch but also so excited as well and really didn't want to see come to an end knowing this is the last for some of the characters within the Marvel Universe in which people are…

The Hidden People - Alison Littlewood (book review)

Book: The Hidden People
Author: Alison Littlewood
Genre: Horror, Fantasy, Historical
Published By: Jo Fletcher Books
Published Year: 2016

My Review:
Taking part in the OWL'S Readathon I needed a book which met the prompt of "Plant on the Cover" and after putting a poll on Twitter which had the choice of three different books this is the one that came out on top. As a result I ended up with this book and although seeming interested in it from the back of the book I found that this book did not grab me as much as I wish it did.

The book is about a man who's cousin dies so he goes to try and find out the truth about her death and upon getting to the village of Halfoak finds that the people are really into superstition and believed his cousin to be a fairy and not of this world. However, when his wife gets there he starts to think that maybe there is some truth in the tales the people were saying.

I found that this book was really slow for my personal taste and I couldn't…

Goosebumps: Don't Feed The Vampire - R.L. Stine (book review)

Book: Goosebumps: Please Don't Feed The Vampire
Author: R.L. Stine
Genre: Children's, Horror
Published By: Scholastic
Published Year: 1997

My Review:
Taking part in the OWL'S Readathon a subject I had was Care of Magical Creatures which had the prompt of "Land Animal on the Cover" because of this I thought it would be the perfect time to go back to a book I loved when I was younger called Goosebumps: Please Don't Feed The Vampire. Which I ended up still enjoying even though I am now an adult.

The book is one where the reader is able to make the decisions of the book and from the beginning there is two different routes in which the reader is able to take. The first is a story where the reader becomes a vampire and gets to choose how they deal with becoming one from trying to become human again to also staying a vampire. The other is where the dog becomes a vampire instead!

I personally think that this book is great for engaging readers with letting them choose what…
