My Review:
Being a fan of Adam Sandler and Chris Rock this film was something in which I just had to see however wasn't really that impressed with unfortunately.

The Week Of is about a father who tries to make his daughter's wedding perfect however with barely any money and everything going wrong will the day be able to still go ahead?

I liked that this film showed which day it was before the wedding so that the audience could fully see the timeline up to the wedding itself and how the father's don't particularly get on and feel that the wedding should be better due to the man's father having money and would have been able to have the wedding no problem instead of sticking with a cheaper wedding which the father of the woman is paying for. I thought this film had a few laughs however mostly from Chris Rock rather than anyone else and I did think that the ending was rather emotional and sweet which I did like about the movie overall.

However, this film was really repetitive all the way through which did make me rather bored of the movie and it was really slow to get into the movie itself which I wasn't a fan of. It also seemed like a lot of the jokes were really cheap and not that funny as a result of it which I did find rather disappointing as a fan of Adam Sandler's. The Week Of also seemed to have one character which was out of a psych ward and it seemed like they were cushioning him too much and mocking people with mental health issues and those with physical disabilities which did make me rather annoyed with the movie.

Overall, it was an okay movie but not a film I could see me watching a lot. This film would be good for those who like Chris Rock and like slow movies and want a really sweet ending. However, this is not one of the best Adam Sandler movies to date and one I was rather disappointed with.

My Rating: 3/5

I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained. Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the b

The Girl With All The Gifts (film review) *contains spoilers*

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjGkB_oWTe0 My Review: Having been interested in this movie for a while and it really catching my eye lately especially with it being on Netflix I couldn't resist but to give this a watch. This is something in which I had better expectations for than it gave me and seemed a rather forgettable movie even though it wasn't a bad watch. I liked that The Girl With All The Gifts started with showing how the children were taught and kept in separate rooms however made the audience wonder why they were kept that way when they seemed like normal children. Later discovering that they were zombies and that there was a zombie break all over the w

A Letter For The King- Tonke Dragt (book review) *contains spoilers*

Book: The Letter For The King Author: Tonke Dragt Genre: fiction, adventure Published By: Pushkin Children's Books Published Year: 1962 My Review: I managed to get this book from NetGalley for an honest review and I am so glad that I did choose this book to read. This book is put into a prologue and eight different sections which indicate where in the story the characters are as well as chapter titles to make the reader have some idea what the chapter they are reading about. Prologue: In this part of the book the reader is made to understand the past of Dagonaut also how the knights are appointed to the king and why there are five boys in a chapel just outside of the town who is doing a vigil. This is a great way to let the reader understand how the following boys are where they are and makes the reader wonder which of these boys are going to be going on an adventure and how if they are so close to the king this would be a long book.
