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

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 …

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…

Time Travel - Roxanne San Jose (book review)

Book: Time Travel
Author: Roxanne San Jose
Genre: Sci-fi
Published By: Avid Publishing LLC
Published Year: 2019

My Review:
Being given a free copy of Time Travel for an honest review I decided to give this a read. Having thought it sounded interesting I was looking forward to seeing how this book would go forward and although this book had some good ideas I don't feel like this book was fully finished.

Time Travel is about a girl who invents a time machine and when coming home from the future finds that her boyfriend has went to the past and gotten himself stuck there so tries to get him back while making friends along the way.

I liked that this book had that when the couple went to the future and came across a robot went on an adventure with it after knowing it had been abandoned for a long time. Not only this but by having the main girl character Angelie come back for the robot when her boyfriend goes missing and asks for his help was really sweet and really helped to connect those ch…
