Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNe1BEULzsk

My Review:
Having seen that Netflix brought out a new comedy movie this week I thought I would give it a watch and it actually surprised me with how good it was.

The movie is about a group of teenagers who decide to go camping and one of their friends ends up cutting his dick off and it is up to his friends to deliver it to the hospital before he ends up in surgery and losing it forever.

I liked this film and it did make me laugh thoughout as it had the same style of humour as which is in American Pie. I also thought that having the teenagers rather useless and the situations in which they end up in over trying to get the dick back for their friend was brilliant and brought up all situations both real and not but it brought the film together really well. The love story between the man's sister who has his dick cut off and the main character was also a really good way of showing teen romance and how it seems the world is against you and how being scared can ruin your chances with someone very easily. The Package was one of the best comedies I feel Netflix have brought out in a while and I am glad I had decided to watch this.

However, I did find that this movie was a bit cheesy and cringy at times and some of the jokes were rather cheap which did rather ruin the film a little but not enough for me to be annoyed at and not watch.

This film would be brilliant for those who are fans of American Pie and are looking for a teenage comedy movie. I was really surprised by this movie and will definitely be watching this again.
My Rating: 4/5

My Review:
Wanting a style of film I don't usually watch but do enjoy I decided to watch the stalker movie that is My Teacher, My Obsession which is based on an English teacher who starts at a new school. However, when one of the students gets obsessed with him she will do anything to be with him including secluding him from everyone else.

I liked the foreshadowing at the beginning of the movie which matched up to the ending very well and shows how throughout the movie that this was coming up. I also liked how the film showed how the student was getting close to…

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 who she starts seeing t…

Mysteries and Secrets of Magic - C.J.S. Thompson (book review)

Book: Mysteries and Secrets of Magic
Author: C.J.S. Thompson
Published By: Senate
Published Year: 1927

My Review: 
As this book is a non-fiction book about magic I did find this rather interesting to read however it seemed like this novel was more of a tester to see what kind of topic you would be most interested in with it only having short amounts on various topics such as: Supernatural Beings, Greek and Roman Magic, Magical Numbers, The Grimoires or Handbook of Black Magic, Magic in Shakespeare's Plays and many more.

This did however teach me about magic that I didn't know about and now want to look more into as a result of this book and discover more about the magic of the past as well if there is any use of magic in the world now as we know it in 2018 almost 100 years after this book was first published.

I would recommend this book to those who would like to know more about magic however don't know what they would like to learn as this will help you know what aspects of magi…
