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:
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 …
