My Review:
Having wanted to see Show Dogs in the cinema and not getting around to it I was glad to finally see it and found myself loving it a lot more than I expected and was thoroughly entertained all the way through this movie and laughed more than I had expected.

The film is about a Rottweiler named Max who when trying to save a panda which had been stolen away from it's mother ends up going undercover at a dog show and with the help of an old show dog learns about love while trying to save the panda before it is too late!

I personally really enjoyed this movie and the action within it was done really well which did make this more entertaining to watch. Not only this but I really like how they used real dogs for this movie and did not make it an animation due to the type of film in which it ended up to be. This film was really clever and showed how the owner and dog went from not liking and trusting each other to becoming friends as well as showing how not to judge someone by their cover and what they do as what they go through can be harder than someone expects and you don't fully understand someone till you have been through their experiences. Show Dogs also had a lot of good laughs for both adults and children and as a result is a brilliant family movie. With the film also making me go in awe with the baby panda and with how cute the dogs were I couldn't keep my eyes away from the screen and was really engaged all the way through this movie which is something I wasn't expecting but was a brilliant surprise.

I did think however that at times the CGI with the dogs talking could have been better and with some of the action sequences but considering that this film was done with real dogs and how it was done I was rather impressed with it.

I would highly recommend this movie to people who are looking for a family movie with dogs as the main characters and not an animation film. Not only this but I would recommend this film to those who are looking for an easy to follow storyline that will make you laugh. I will definitely be seeing this film 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…
