My Rating:
Having been recommended to watch Inception and not having seen it in years I gave it a watch and was surprised on how great this movie was and how I had not given this film more attention in the past.

Inception is about a mission to help break up a company of a competitor through the use of planting the idea in his head through layers which can only be made through going into other people's dreams. Not only this but when the main operative's own subconscious comes through could it destroy everything?

I love the concept of this film and thought that it was acted out brilliantly and executed in a way which was very understanding and kept the watcher entertained all the way through. Understanding why the subconscious from the main character was breaking through and his guilt also was great at better understanding the movie. I do like that it explains how to wake up the characters without having them trapped and what happens if someone gets stuck in the dream world and dies so ends up in limbo.Having the character in which they are planting the idea I enjoyed how it went through how he didn't get along with his father and was told how he was a disappointment and felt he wasn't wanted by his father to coming to terms with his fathers death and that he didn't need to live in his fathers shadow but could be his own man which he realises by the end of the movie. The ending of the movie when you see that the main character is still in limbo and never made it back was a great ending as it showed that he didn't want to come back now that he had made peace with his guilt and that now he is able to be with his children now that the job has been done. It does leave the watcher also wondering if the main character will want to come back to reality and see his real children or if he will just stay in limbo with his children or die due to still being in the water. 

I do wish however that there was more explanation in how the dream world works and how they are able to go into each other's dreams which I feel that it doesn't touch upon as much.

Overall, this is an amazing movie and one that I would recommend to those looking for an action and sci-fi movie. I would also recommend this film to those who are fans of "The Matrix". I will definitely be watching this film again.

My Review: 5/5

My Review:
Wanting a style of film I don't usually watch but do enjoy I decided to watch the stalker movie that is My Teacher, My Obsession which is based on an English teacher who starts at a new school. However, when one of the students gets obsessed with him she will do anything to be with him including secluding him from everyone else.

I liked the foreshadowing at the beginning of the movie which matched up to the ending very well and shows how throughout the movie that this was coming up. I also liked how the film showed how the student was getting close to…

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 who she starts seeing t…

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 aspects of magi…
