My Review:
Having had this on my to watch list on Netflix for a while I thought it was time to give this a watch. Knowing that this had subtitles as well did delay me for a while on watching it due to not being a huge fan of subtitled movies. This was also called Our Lovers, on Netflix for those who look for it.

The movie is about a girl who approaches a man in a bar and they start speaking and decide to play a game like when they were younger and there is only rules of not getting to know each other personally and that there is to be no names between them and no phone numbers or internet to know more about each other. While also not allowing to fall in love with each other.

I found that this film was rather cute to watch and I liked that they made it so they were not allowed to know much about each other so that it was like the time before the internet and an older age. This movie also had really good settings and I found myself liking where they decided to shoot this movie on more than one occasion so I could personally go there! This movie also had a good way of showing how they were both getting over someone from her with her ex-boyfriend who just split up with her prior to the main characters meeting and him having just taken space from his wife. However, as the audience discover more about the characters and how they are all connected it is a really cute movie where you end up routing for the two main characters of this film to get together and not go back to their other halves in which they are both still getting over. Another thing I really liked about this movie was that there was a moment when the man finds out that his writing partner and best friend got seduced by his wife and he realises that she would do it again as she done it before he even left and before he fond out that she had someone else on the side which was why he was to move out. Showing that even though he was undecided what to do between going back to his wife and the new girl he started to fall for he deserved a lot better than his wife and leaves her.

On the other hand however, there was a lot of dialogue which made the subtitles get faster than I could read them all which did make me a little disappointed and made me miss watching the film more than read the subtitles so I would know what was happening which did make me mark this down. However, I think if this movie was dubbed instead of me having to read the subtitles all the way through the movie I would have liked the movie a lot more. I personally also didn't like how unreal this movie seemed with having the meetings done just randomly with only a time and a place to meet as it seemed like something that would just never happen.

Overall, I liked this movie and thought that it was rather cute and put a slightly different twist on the romance movies which is already out there which was enjoyable. I would recommend this movie to those who don't mind a lot of subtitles or can speak Spanish as well as those who like romance movies and want one with a slight twist on the usual foundation.

My Rating: 3/5

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

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
