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

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask - Akira Himekawa (book review)

Majora's Mask is the second graphic novel from the Legend of Zelda series by Akira Himekawa. As a Zelda fan myself and liking the game that this is based off of I found this book really enjoyable. It changes parts of the game in order to get it faster paced for the book however this doesn't fault the book at all. Not only this but the graphics within this book are really good and made me love the book even more while also making me have the music from the game in my head.

The book also has a bonus story at the end which is about the making of the mask and how the mask came into being, I found this really fitting and something that is not only original but something that needed to be added to the book. As in the games it doesn't tell you how the mask was made or the story behind it this bonus story seemed like a more fulfilling piece of the story and tied up any loose ends such as how the mask came to be and why it is cursed.

As a Zelda fan I can't fault this book and …

My Review:
Being excited that there was a Spider-man movie coming out I needed to see it as soon as I could however this film left me feeling kinda disappointed at the end of the film which did upset me and I feel like they rushed over some parts and made other parts just a little too slow for me personally.

I did like that this film showed what happened to everyone since the Blip which happened in the Avengers movies and that even though some people aged the ones who came back were the same age and had to continue life as they had before. This helped to explain what happened with everyone after the events of Endgame and showed how life continued. I also…

Time Travel - Roxanne San Jose (book review)

Book: Time Travel
Author: Roxanne San Jose
Genre: Sci-fi
Published By: Avid Publishing LLC
Published Year: 2019

My Review:
Being given a free copy of Time Travel for an honest review I decided to give this a read. Having thought it sounded interesting I was looking forward to seeing how this book would go forward and although this book had some good ideas I don't feel like this book was fully finished.

Time Travel is about a girl who invents a time machine and when coming home from the future finds that her boyfriend has went to the past and gotten himself stuck there so tries to get him back while making friends along the way.

I liked that this book had that when the couple went to the future and came across a robot went on an adventure with it after knowing it had been abandoned for a long time. Not only this but by having the main girl character Angelie come back for the robot when her boyfriend goes missing and asks for his help was really sweet and really helped to connect those ch…
