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

My Review:
Having been a huge fan of the MCU and being really excited for this movie since Infinity War came out in 2018 I couldn't wait to see this at the midnight release. I have waited a little while before uploading this review and that was so that when spoilers came up it was after the time in which Marvel said it was okay to do so.This is a film which I was so scared to watch but also so excited as well and really didn't want to see come to an end knowing this is the last for some of the characters within the Marvel Universe in which people are…

The Hidden People - Alison Littlewood (book review)

Book: The Hidden People
Author: Alison Littlewood
Genre: Horror, Fantasy, Historical
Published By: Jo Fletcher Books
Published Year: 2016

My Review:
Taking part in the OWL'S Readathon I needed a book which met the prompt of "Plant on the Cover" and after putting a poll on Twitter which had the choice of three different books this is the one that came out on top. As a result I ended up with this book and although seeming interested in it from the back of the book I found that this book did not grab me as much as I wish it did.

The book is about a man who's cousin dies so he goes to try and find out the truth about her death and upon getting to the village of Halfoak finds that the people are really into superstition and believed his cousin to be a fairy and not of this world. However, when his wife gets there he starts to think that maybe there is some truth in the tales the people were saying.

I found that this book was really slow for my personal taste and I couldn't…

Goosebumps: Don't Feed The Vampire - R.L. Stine (book review)

Book: Goosebumps: Please Don't Feed The Vampire
Author: R.L. Stine
Genre: Children's, Horror
Published By: Scholastic
Published Year: 1997

My Review:
Taking part in the OWL'S Readathon a subject I had was Care of Magical Creatures which had the prompt of "Land Animal on the Cover" because of this I thought it would be the perfect time to go back to a book I loved when I was younger called Goosebumps: Please Don't Feed The Vampire. Which I ended up still enjoying even though I am now an adult.

The book is one where the reader is able to make the decisions of the book and from the beginning there is two different routes in which the reader is able to take. The first is a story where the reader becomes a vampire and gets to choose how they deal with becoming one from trying to become human again to also staying a vampire. The other is where the dog becomes a vampire instead!

I personally think that this book is great for engaging readers with letting them choose what…
