My Review:
Having seen Marvel bring out another movie to the MCU I just needed to see this film and got around to seeing it at the weekend. Although hearing a lot of mixed reactions I did like this film wasn't really impressed with it either.

The movie is about how Scott is under house arrest and has a dream about Hope's mother and them trying to bring her back from the quantum realm however there is a woman called Eva who is able to phase and want's the power that Hope's mother would have in order to get her life back to normal.

I thought that this film was humorous and it did make me laugh and I though that seeing how Hope and Scott still have feelings for each other was rather cute. I liked how the police kept trying to catch Scott away from his home as he is under house arrest however to no avail. With the acting still being good throughout I did find that this did make me enjoy the movie. I also thought that as they were looking for Hope's mother this was a good edition to the movie and I hope that in the future they use more of her character as she was able to be saved and did have powers which did come from the quantum realm. Alongside this having Hank made his lab small and using small cars as well as being able to make a small home was a great way of being able to take their work everywhere and make it harder for the villain to be able to get their hands on their work.

I did find however, that I was confused why Ava's character was in this movie as she did not really add much to the movie in terms of being a villain also the plot didn't really seem to go into depth making the audience question why this film was really made as it had no effect on anything else going on in the MCU or much on the film overall.

Overall, I liked this movie but thought that it needed more depth into it and a better understanding to the movie. I would recommend this movie to those who like the MCU and are wanting more of a comedic superhero movie. I would also recommend this movie to those who are wanting something really easy to follow.

My Rating: 4/5

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…
