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

Sahara (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: Sahara Year: 2017 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Pierre Core Starring: Omar Sy, Louane Emera, Franck Gastambide About:  A young cobra and his scorpion best friend go on a journey across the Sahara desert to save a new-found love Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3IRkT9JsqM My Review: Having a movie day I came across Sahara when on Netflix and having no expectations about this film and also not knowing what it was about I thought that it would be the perfect film to blog about. I did think that this was a cute adventure movie but would be better suited to a younger audience than myself. I found that this film was really sweet that the snake wanted to go across the desert in order to find a snake in which he found he felt a connection with even though they were different kinds and also from different worlds. I also thought by having the girls brother being a drug addict and struggling with wanting more drugs and wanting to leave his sister w

Mysteries and Secrets of Magic - C.J.S. Thompson (book review)

Book: Mysteries and Secrets of Magic Author: C.J.S. Thompson Published By: Senate Published Year: 1927 My Review:  As this book is a non-fiction book about magic I did find this rather interesting to read however it seemed like this novel was more of a tester to see what kind of topic you would be most interested in with it only having short amounts on various topics such as: Supernatural Beings, Greek and Roman Magic, Magical Numbers, The Grimoires or Handbook of Black Magic, Magic in Shakespeare's Plays and many more. This did however teach me about magic that I didn't know about and now want to look more into as a result of this book and discover more about the magic of the past as well if there is any use of magic in the world now as we know it in 2018 almost 100 years after this book was first published. I would recommend this book to those who would like to know more about magic however don't know what they would like to learn as this will help you know what as
