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

Sahara (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: Sahara Year: 2017 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Pierre Core Starring: Omar Sy, Louane Emera, Franck Gastambide About:  A young cobra and his scorpion best friend go on a journey across the Sahara desert to save a new-found love Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3IRkT9JsqM My Review: Having a movie day I came across Sahara when on Netflix and having no expectations about this film and also not knowing what it was about I thought that it would be the perfect film to blog about. I did think that this was a cute adventure movie but would be better suited to a younger audience than myself. I found that this film was really sweet that the snake wanted to go across the desert in order to find a snake in which he found he felt a connection with even though they were different kinds and also from different worlds. I also thought by having the girls brother being a drug addict and struggling with wanting more drugs and wanting to leave his sister w

Mysteries and Secrets of Magic - C.J.S. Thompson (book review)

Book: Mysteries and Secrets of Magic Author: C.J.S. Thompson Published By: Senate Published Year: 1927 My Review:  As this book is a non-fiction book about magic I did find this rather interesting to read however it seemed like this novel was more of a tester to see what kind of topic you would be most interested in with it only having short amounts on various topics such as: Supernatural Beings, Greek and Roman Magic, Magical Numbers, The Grimoires or Handbook of Black Magic, Magic in Shakespeare's Plays and many more. This did however teach me about magic that I didn't know about and now want to look more into as a result of this book and discover more about the magic of the past as well if there is any use of magic in the world now as we know it in 2018 almost 100 years after this book was first published. I would recommend this book to those who would like to know more about magic however don't know what they would like to learn as this will help you know what as
