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:
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 …
