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

Moon Over Soho - Ben Aaronovitch (book review) *contains spoilers*

Book: Moon Over Soho Author: Ben Aaronovitch Genre: Crime, Fantasy, Mystery Published By: Gollancz Published Year: 2011 My Review: Having my colleague let me borrow the second book in the Peter Grant series I was looking forward to see how they would progress from the first book and what supernatural beings that they would have to defeat now. Moon Over Soho  is about jazz musicians who end up dying not long after coming off of the stage and seeming healthy at the time. Feeling that something is wrong they call in Peter Grant to help with the investigation and discover that something supernatural was going on. While this is happening there is a new threat arriving called The Faceless One who is also a wizard but no-one remembers what they look like. Will Peter be able to stop the threats facing London? Personally, I liked this book a lot more than the first book as it was already established also there was more supernatural beings introduced and to worry about in London th

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUdy0Cu3f_o My Review: Looking through my movies and wanting something based in space to watch I decided to put on Supernova which is a film in which I couldn't remember at all. Not remembering it made me feel like this was a new movie to me and I did keep me watching all of the way through easily. I like that this film showed how the device in which they discover is able to make people stronger and able to make them younger as well. By also having this device able to reattach body parts it makes the audience worried about how they will get rid o

Walko About:  A young American girl has a chance of a lifetime to visit her ancestors castle in the south of France, only to find that her family is hiding deep, dark secrets about their nefarious past, far away from prying eyes. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EARmKIxjxQ&t=82s My Review: Having been contacted by Jude himself about this movie I was rather surprised but excited to review The Incantation which comes out in America later this month. Having only seen the trailer I was not sure what to expect but glad I gave this a watch. The film is about a girl from America who moves to her families castle in France and is met by a vicar who tells her the rules of the household with three rules: no going upstairs, no uninvited guests and keeping decorum. As she stays however she starts getting nightmares about a young girl wh
