My Review:
Having been asked to watch Mulholland Drive I decided to go into this movie completely blind and not know anything about this film before giving it a watch. I do wish however that I did check it out before I watched it and found out that this film personally just wasn't for me.

Mulholland Drive is about a girl who ends up coming to Los Angeles and finds another woman in her aunt's apartment who has no memory of who she is. As a result both woman try to find out who the woman is coming across loads of clues but not all is as it seems.

Personally, I didn't understand this movie and different parts of the movie seemed to clash to me making me wonder what was going on. I did find that when I did figure out what was happening within the movie I was wrong and ended up confused again about what was going on making me feel I would need to see this film again to properly understand what I had watched and get a better understanding of Mulholland Drive. I also thought that the sex scene's weren't needed and were just added to try and people more interested in the film as sex is easy to sell but did make me just feel that this was rather cheap.

I did however, like the mystery through the part in which I did start to understand of the movie and did hope that the girls would discover who woman was. As well as this I found that this film did show some really good acting from the two main actresses within the movie which did make this a little better to watch.

This film wasn't to my liking but I would suggest that people who like mystery films would like this and those who are looking for a film with a twist at the ending to give this a watch. Personally, I don't see myself watching this again.

My Rating: 2/5

My Review:
Having been a huge fan of the MCU and being really excited for this movie since Infinity War came out in 2018 I couldn't wait to see this at the midnight release. I have waited a little while before uploading this review and that was so that when spoilers came up it was after the time in which Marvel said it was okay to do so.This is a film which I was so scared to watch but also so excited as well and really didn't want to see come to an end knowing this is the last for some of the characters within the Marvel Universe in which people are…

The Hidden People - Alison Littlewood (book review)

Book: The Hidden People
Author: Alison Littlewood
Genre: Horror, Fantasy, Historical
Published By: Jo Fletcher Books
Published Year: 2016

My Review:
Taking part in the OWL'S Readathon I needed a book which met the prompt of "Plant on the Cover" and after putting a poll on Twitter which had the choice of three different books this is the one that came out on top. As a result I ended up with this book and although seeming interested in it from the back of the book I found that this book did not grab me as much as I wish it did.

The book is about a man who's cousin dies so he goes to try and find out the truth about her death and upon getting to the village of Halfoak finds that the people are really into superstition and believed his cousin to be a fairy and not of this world. However, when his wife gets there he starts to think that maybe there is some truth in the tales the people were saying.

I found that this book was really slow for my personal taste and I couldn't…

Goosebumps: Don't Feed The Vampire - R.L. Stine (book review)

Book: Goosebumps: Please Don't Feed The Vampire
Author: R.L. Stine
Genre: Children's, Horror
Published By: Scholastic
Published Year: 1997

My Review:
Taking part in the OWL'S Readathon a subject I had was Care of Magical Creatures which had the prompt of "Land Animal on the Cover" because of this I thought it would be the perfect time to go back to a book I loved when I was younger called Goosebumps: Please Don't Feed The Vampire. Which I ended up still enjoying even though I am now an adult.

The book is one where the reader is able to make the decisions of the book and from the beginning there is two different routes in which the reader is able to take. The first is a story where the reader becomes a vampire and gets to choose how they deal with becoming one from trying to become human again to also staying a vampire. The other is where the dog becomes a vampire instead!

I personally think that this book is great for engaging readers with letting them choose what…
