My Review:
Having never seen any of the Jurassic movies before I thought that I would start with Jurassic World. I was really surprised by this film and just how much I ended up enjoying it.

Jurassic World is about a genetically designed dinosaur and decides to go killing all the dinosaurs and people within the island. However, when they are not able to capture the dinosaur easily will they be able to capture it or destroy it before it destroys the island.

I loved that from the very beginning of the movie it was all set for what was going to be happening throughout the film due to seeing the dinosaur and how it was dangerous while still confined within it's cage. I thought by also making the audience wonder what the dinosaur was genetically formed with was a good mystery that was left till near the very end of the movie and kept it fresh and kept the dinosaur feeling more dangerous than it would have been otherwise. With action from nearly the very start of the film I enjoyed as it kept my attention and made me feel that the film was going at a brilliant speed which always made me wonder what was going to be happening next. Finally, my favourite thing about Jurassic World was that it showed how even though different dinosaurs were enemies if it comes to a dinosaur which is too powerful for the planet and threatens others existence then they will come together to bring down the dinosaur and showed a coming together of the different species.

I found that this film was really enjoyable and one that I will definitely be watching again and can't wait to see more from the Jurassic series of movies. I would recommend this film to those who like dinosaurs and want a lot of action.

My Rating: 5/5

My Review:
Loving Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle I knew I had to see this movie when it came out and luckily managed to see it in the cinema. With the cast of this film being amazing and the first one being one of my favourite releases of 2017/18 I was worried that this wouldn't have the same effect but I am so glad that I was wrong.

Jumanji: The Next Level is amazing at bringing the humour back to the movie for a second time around and it doesn't feel forced or like it us unoriginal or used up from the last movie which I am so happy about. …

The Current War (film review)

Genre: Biography, Drama, History
Directed By: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon

About: The dramatic story of the cutthroat race between electricity titans Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse to determine whose electrical system would power the modern world
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kue18AxK1tU

My Review:
Having wanted to see The Current War since it was in the cinema after seeing how it had an incredible cast of actors in which I already like I knew I had to see it once it came onto DVD. Not only this but not knowing much about the electricity feud this was a subject in which I found myself really interested in which made me enjoy this film a lot more than I had expected.

I thought that it was good how it showed the rivalry between both Edison and Westinghouse and how Edison was willing to tarnish his name in order to get ahead and even go against his own beliefs in order to try and win the…

Blood Demons - Richard Jeffries (book review)

Book: Blood Demons
Author: Richard Jeffries
Genre: Horror
Published By: Kensington Books
Published Year: 2018

My Review:
Slowly lowering the books in which are on my Netgalley account I decided to read one that has been there for a while which is Blood Demons by Richard Jeffries which I thought looked really interesting and as I rarely read horror books thought it would make a good change for me.

Blood Demons is about a bombing which happens at Mount Rushmore and there is no blood found at the scene a specialized department called Cerberus is called in to try and find out what happened and leads to the finding of the beginning of the legend which is vampires. Not only this they feel that they are ready to dominate the world.

I thought that this book had a really good idea behind it and I really liked how it had a team that just deals with supernatural types of crimes just to make sure people had safety. Not only this but by having the book about the history of vampires I found that it was a…
