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

Moon Over Soho - Ben Aaronovitch (book review) *contains spoilers*

Book: Moon Over Soho Author: Ben Aaronovitch Genre: Crime, Fantasy, Mystery Published By: Gollancz Published Year: 2011 My Review: Having my colleague let me borrow the second book in the Peter Grant series I was looking forward to see how they would progress from the first book and what supernatural beings that they would have to defeat now. Moon Over Soho  is about jazz musicians who end up dying not long after coming off of the stage and seeming healthy at the time. Feeling that something is wrong they call in Peter Grant to help with the investigation and discover that something supernatural was going on. While this is happening there is a new threat arriving called The Faceless One who is also a wizard but no-one remembers what they look like. Will Peter be able to stop the threats facing London? Personally, I liked this book a lot more than the first book as it was already established also there was more supernatural beings introduced and to worry about in London th

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUdy0Cu3f_o My Review: Looking through my movies and wanting something based in space to watch I decided to put on Supernova which is a film in which I couldn't remember at all. Not remembering it made me feel like this was a new movie to me and I did keep me watching all of the way through easily. I like that this film showed how the device in which they discover is able to make people stronger and able to make them younger as well. By also having this device able to reattach body parts it makes the audience worried about how they will get rid o

Walko About:  A young American girl has a chance of a lifetime to visit her ancestors castle in the south of France, only to find that her family is hiding deep, dark secrets about their nefarious past, far away from prying eyes. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EARmKIxjxQ&t=82s My Review: Having been contacted by Jude himself about this movie I was rather surprised but excited to review The Incantation which comes out in America later this month. Having only seen the trailer I was not sure what to expect but glad I gave this a watch. The film is about a girl from America who moves to her families castle in France and is met by a vicar who tells her the rules of the household with three rules: no going upstairs, no uninvited guests and keeping decorum. As she stays however she starts getting nightmares about a young girl wh
