My Review:
Wanting a tearjerker film to watch Miracles from Heaven came to my attention and seeing that it was based on a true story made me want to watch this even more.

The film is about a girl who ends up getting a rare stomach disease which could make her no longer able to digest food and is dying the parents go through trying to save their daughter no matter what it takes and how the mother goes through losing her faith and how she manages to get it back.

I found this film was really moving and did make me on numerous occasions feel close to tears and at one point did indeed make me cry This was due to amazing acting from the whole cast which brought this film more to life. The doctor in which helped them did make me laugh during the film and was good to see how he was able to make the children happy even though they were in a bad place which did make me respect him a lot. Having this film also show how the doctors didn't believe the parents over their daughter being ill and how the different tests didn't show anything in which was wrong with her showing that sometimes doctors can be wrong and that sometimes you need to make sure tests are being done till you are aware what's wrong if it is something serious. Miracles from Heaven also showed at the ending what happened to the real family and where they are now after the ordeal in which this film takes place, this was a great addition which did make me smile.

I didn't find any faults with this movie at all. This is a great movie and one that I would recommend to those who are looking for a film to make them cry and one that is based on a true story. Personally, this is a drama movie which was done brilliantly and I will definitely be watching 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

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 also liked how the film showed how the stude
