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

My Review:
Being excited that there was a Spider-man movie coming out I needed to see it as soon as I could however this film left me feeling kinda disappointed at the end of the film which did upset me and I feel like they rushed over some parts and made other parts just a little too slow for me personally.

I did like that this film showed what happened to everyone since the Blip which happened in the Avengers movies and that even though some people aged the ones who came back were the same age and had to continue life as they had before. This helped to explain what happened with everyone after the events of Endgame and showed how life continued. I also…

Mute (film review)

Film: Mute
Year: 2018
Genre: Mystery, Sci-fi, Thriller
Starring: Alexander Skarsgard, Paul Rudd, Justin Theroux
About: A mute bartender goes up against his city's gangsters in an effort to find out what happened to his missing partner.

My Review: 
Seeing this come up on my recommended for me on Netflix I decided to see if this would be any good. Liking Alexander Skarsgard as an actor, seeing him in a different role than I usually see him in really intrigued me.

The film is about a man called Leo who is a mute and when his girlfriend goes missing tries to find her any way that he can. At the same time the audience is seeing a man who seems to be involved in crime and who is trying to leave the country to go back to America.

I found that this film had a slower plot than I would have personally liked and it could have been more in depth with the movie however it was a good watch that I would see again. I also think that this highlights Alexander Skarsgard's acting ability as he is a m…

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask - Akira Himekawa (book review)

Majora's Mask is the second graphic novel from the Legend of Zelda series by Akira Himekawa. As a Zelda fan myself and liking the game that this is based off of I found this book really enjoyable. It changes parts of the game in order to get it faster paced for the book however this doesn't fault the book at all. Not only this but the graphics within this book are really good and made me love the book even more while also making me have the music from the game in my head.

The book also has a bonus story at the end which is about the making of the mask and how the mask came into being, I found this really fitting and something that is not only original but something that needed to be added to the book. As in the games it doesn't tell you how the mask was made or the story behind it this bonus story seemed like a more fulfilling piece of the story and tied up any loose ends such as how the mask came to be and why it is cursed.

As a Zelda fan I can't fault this book and …
