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

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nt9L1jCKGnE

My Review:
Being excited that there was a Spider-man movie coming out I needed to see it as soon as I could however this film left me feeling kinda disappointed at the end of the film which did upset me and I feel like they rushed over some parts and made other parts just a little too slow for me personally.

I did like that this film showed what happened to everyone since the Blip which happened in the Avengers movies and that even though some people aged the ones who came back were the same age and had to continue life as they had before. This helped to explain what happened with everyone after the events of Endgame and showed how life continued. I also…

Mute (film review)

Film: Mute
Year: 2018
Genre: Mystery, Sci-fi, Thriller
Starring: Alexander Skarsgard, Paul Rudd, Justin Theroux
About: A mute bartender goes up against his city's gangsters in an effort to find out what happened to his missing partner.

My Review: 
Seeing this come up on my recommended for me on Netflix I decided to see if this would be any good. Liking Alexander Skarsgard as an actor, seeing him in a different role than I usually see him in really intrigued me.

The film is about a man called Leo who is a mute and when his girlfriend goes missing tries to find her any way that he can. At the same time the audience is seeing a man who seems to be involved in crime and who is trying to leave the country to go back to America.

I found that this film had a slower plot than I would have personally liked and it could have been more in depth with the movie however it was a good watch that I would see again. I also think that this highlights Alexander Skarsgard's acting ability as he is a m…

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask - Akira Himekawa (book review)

Majora's Mask is the second graphic novel from the Legend of Zelda series by Akira Himekawa. As a Zelda fan myself and liking the game that this is based off of I found this book really enjoyable. It changes parts of the game in order to get it faster paced for the book however this doesn't fault the book at all. Not only this but the graphics within this book are really good and made me love the book even more while also making me have the music from the game in my head.

The book also has a bonus story at the end which is about the making of the mask and how the mask came into being, I found this really fitting and something that is not only original but something that needed to be added to the book. As in the games it doesn't tell you how the mask was made or the story behind it this bonus story seemed like a more fulfilling piece of the story and tied up any loose ends such as how the mask came to be and why it is cursed.

As a Zelda fan I can't fault this book and …
