My Review:
Letting my mum choose the movie for us to watch she took a look on Netflix and decided to put on He Never Died. This film although sounding familiar to me I couldn't place and found myself really liking this movie.

The film is about a man named Jack who seems to do nothing all day until his daughter arrives at his door and everything changes as mobsters try to kill him. However, nothing is as it seems about Jack!

I thought that this was good at showing a man who feels like he has given up with the world and how he stays to himself till he is forced to do otherwise. With the addition of his daughter you could see that he was starting to change a little and how this was effecting him as a person. However, when the mobsters come after him and the watcher is able to see how he has a craving for blood and that is why he is staying away from the other people to keep away from the temptation of killing them. I thought that the fighting scenes within this was also really good and showed how strong Jack was and how he was  more of an assassin than people thought especially as he is unable to die. The acting throughout this I felt was really good and it seemed to fit the actors extremely well making me surprised when the film was over thinking it had only been around half an hour which is something in which I like in a movie.

I did feel like there should have been more about the guy in the black hat though which seemed to be death who was following him but gave no indication as to why he would be. I also got rather confused as to who Jack was meant to be. With having been meant to be Kane from the bible but then saying he was a vampire I got rather confused especially with what seemed to be wing marks on his back which you see at the beginning of the movie.

Overall, I would recommend He Never Died to people who are looking for a more real fantasy movie and one that has a lot of action within it. This was a surprise to me and a film I would see again.

My Rating: 4/5

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
