My Review:
Having loved this movie since I first ever saw it when it was released back in 2006 I was really craving to watch it as I hadn't in a while and found myself loving it as much as I had done before.

The film is about a raccoon named RJ who tries to steal food from a bear who is hibernating and is given a week to get all of the food back. However, when he comes across a group of scavenger animals he uses them to help get the food back for the bear however when animal control gets involved will the animals be safe or will they be captured and will RJ be able to get the money for the bear?

I love this film and find it really funny, I like how there is a character for everyone within this film through the animals from the really safe reptile who wants to just trust his gut when things are feeling wrong, to Hammy the squirrel who is really hyper and loud. I think that this film shows how sometimes people can be using you however if you give them a chance to change then there is a chance that they will change their ways. I thought that the comedy within this film was really good and more suited to children over adults but that only makes me appreciate this movie as a children's more than anything else. With the soundtrack of this film also a good edition and helps to create the atmosphere perfectly it was well done.

I would recommend this movie to children and those who like animation movies with animals, I will definitely be watching this movie again!

My Rating: 5/5

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.

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

Jeepers Creepers 3 (film review)

Film : Jeepers Creepers 3 Year : 2017 Genre : Horror, Mystery, Thriller Starring : Stan Shaw, Gabrielle Haugh, Brandon Smith About : Sheriff Dan Tashtego and a team of creeper hunters enlist the help of officer Davis Tubbs to help stop the monster's eating spree. My Review:  Jeepers Creepers 3 is more of a transition film between the first and second film starting exactly where the first one ended and ending exactly as one of the boys go onto the school bus like in the second movie.  This film is more about Jeepers Creepers himself and showing how he is able to catch the people in which he is tracking down. As well as this you are able to see how a woman has a part of Jeepers Creepers that is able to look into his history and figure out the way of possibly destroying him. This did annoy me however as during this you see that two of the characters are able to see into his past but does not show the audience anything at all or really tell you anything about the past t
