My Review:
With it coming up to Halloween I decided to watch a more Halloween movie which wasn't a horror film and as a result ended up watching A Witches Ball which can be found on Netflix.

The film is about a girl who gets to be valedictorian so gets her crystal ball prior to the the ceremony of the witches. However, when it gets broken into pieces the girl goes and tries to make the ball one before the ceremony with the help of her pet rat.

I thought that this film was funny at parts and did make me enjoy the film a lot more than I expected I would. I liked how it added some adventure to the film with the map and having to find people that would be able to help fix the crystal ball which had been broken. I thought that by showing how people were able to talk through animals was good as it made the watcher understand how long distance calls were able to be done with magic. Having the bully actually understood at the end of the movie as well and why she acts the way she does highlighted how every story has two sides to it and not to judge people without the full story.

I did think however that this film could have been better and could have added more magic into it as it wasn't really shown within the movie as a whole. I also wish that they gave better understanding of how different witches know what kind of witch or wizard that they were as it is not shown in the film.

I do think that this film would be good for children looking for a Halloween movie and one with a little adventure as well. I don't know wither I would see this movie again however I am glad to have given A Witches Ball a watch.

My Rating: 3/5

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

I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained. Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the b

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4F3Sn-Xzzo 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 stude
