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

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

Walko About:  A young American girl has a chance of a lifetime to visit her ancestors castle in the south of France, only to find that her family is hiding deep, dark secrets about their nefarious past, far away from prying eyes. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EARmKIxjxQ&t=82s 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 wh
