My Review:
Having a movie day with my mother we decided to choose a film each and at her choice of film chose the amazing Guardians of the Galaxy which is a film I have loved since I first seen it in the cinema when it came out and still do years later.

Guardians of the Galaxy is about a man called Peter Quill who when scavenging comes across an orb for a lot of money and goes to sell it however things don't go his way and when the evil Ronan tries to get his hands on it. Will the guardians be able to stop Ronan and save the galaxy as a result or will Ronan succeed?

I love this film and all of the action in which it contains due to being able to see how each character is vital to the team which gets known as the Guardians of the Galaxy. Showing how each member comes into contact with each other is also a really good addition as it shows what the motivation behind all of the characters getting the orb and why they are all teaming together. I thought that there was a lot of foreshadowing in this movie to later in this film as well as to future films which brings the film more together as well as giving the watcher a lot more excitement for future movies. Comedy is another factor of this film which is a good addition as it shows each character properly and makes the film a lot lighter and fun to watch than if it was only just action all of the way through. The end scenes are personally favourites of mine as it shows groot dancing which is just really cute to watch as well as adds some more comedy to the film, also showing Howard the Duck at the very end makes me want to see a film more dedicated to him in which I hope they add later in the MCU. Finally, the soundtrack to this film is brilliant and makes me want to dance along with the songs and sing along as well, making it one of my favourite soundtracks for a movie possibly ever.

I can't fault this film and really enjoy this movie every single time I see it. I would highly recommend this film to those who are fans of the MCU as well as wants a comedy and action film which is perfect for the whole family. This is a film I will definitely see again!

My Rating: 5/5

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…
