My Review:
Having never seen this movie and having owned it for a couple of months I decided to give it a watch and I am so glad I did as this film was better than I expected it to be.

Baby Driver is about a man called Baby who is working for a crime lord to pay him back for something in the past however when all of the money is paid up and he thinks that he is finally free he gets pulled into one last job that he does not want to do.

I thought that this film was really good in showing why he had his headphones in all of the time and how he was still able to know what everyone was saying and his passion for music. I thought by having him live with someone who had to do sign language was good as that is  not really seen in movies and explains how Baby still knows everything which is happening around him when other people think that he is not listening to them. This movie did also have great car chases and a lot of action which seemed necessary and not forced which was something I did find went well with the film as a whole. Not only this but by adding a little humour with the Mike Myers masks did make me laugh and showed how the people were still human and that they still made mistakes like everybody else does. The love interest in this movie was also a good way of showing how Baby wanted to change his life and give her a life she always wanted however without making it cheesy and like the film is focused upon their romance instead of the work that Baby has to do. I do find myself liking Ansel Elgort as an actor more with everything I see him in and find that he was a perfect choice for playing the main character in Baby Driver.

I would recommend this movie to those are looking for an action film which isn't all explosions but a bit more of the real world. I will definitely be seeing this movie again and I am so glad to have picked this film up.

My Rating: 4/5

Sahara (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: Sahara Year: 2017 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Pierre Core Starring: Omar Sy, Louane Emera, Franck Gastambide About:  A young cobra and his scorpion best friend go on a journey across the Sahara desert to save a new-found love Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3IRkT9JsqM My Review: Having a movie day I came across Sahara when on Netflix and having no expectations about this film and also not knowing what it was about I thought that it would be the perfect film to blog about. I did think that this was a cute adventure movie but would be better suited to a younger audience than myself. I found that this film was really sweet that the snake wanted to go across the desert in order to find a snake in which he found he felt a connection with even though they were different kinds and also from different worlds. I also thought by having the girls brother being a drug addict and struggling with wanting more drugs and wanting to leave his sister w

Mysteries and Secrets of Magic - C.J.S. Thompson (book review)

Book: Mysteries and Secrets of Magic Author: C.J.S. Thompson Published By: Senate Published Year: 1927 My Review:  As this book is a non-fiction book about magic I did find this rather interesting to read however it seemed like this novel was more of a tester to see what kind of topic you would be most interested in with it only having short amounts on various topics such as: Supernatural Beings, Greek and Roman Magic, Magical Numbers, The Grimoires or Handbook of Black Magic, Magic in Shakespeare's Plays and many more. This did however teach me about magic that I didn't know about and now want to look more into as a result of this book and discover more about the magic of the past as well if there is any use of magic in the world now as we know it in 2018 almost 100 years after this book was first published. I would recommend this book to those who would like to know more about magic however don't know what they would like to learn as this will help you know what as
