My Review:
Having not seen Tenacious D in The Pick Of Destiny for years I couldn't resist giving this a watch and I completely forgot just how good this movie was and how much it did make me laugh.

The film is about JB who moves to Hollywood to try and meet the other half of what would be later called Tenacious D and how they came to be, when trying to win an open mic night however they realise that they need some new material and go after the pick of destiny which is held in the Rock and Roll museum.

I thought that this film brilliantly showed the way in which JB and Kyle started Tenacious D and their musical careers while also making the audience laugh through a lot of this movie. I thought that this film was real in the way that both Kyle and JB acted and made it a lot more relateable for the people watching the film. With songs throughout the film as well in different area's it brought the film more together and did bring the band really into the film and did have me singing along with some of the songs in which I knew. Not only this but with having the devil at the ending it is brilliantly leading up to the song Tribute which is not however in this movie but shows what the video is based off of. I thought that the drug use within the film wasn't overdone and didn't take away from the movie either which was a great addition as it showed how it helped to focus their music rather than take it away from them.

I would recommend this film to those who are fans of the band Tenacious D and those who are fans of Jack Black. I would also recommend for those who like comedy movies and those who like music based films to also give this a watch. I will definitely be seeing this movie again. 

My Rating: 4/5

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

Film: Supernova Year: 2000 Genre: Horror, Sci-fi, Thriller Directed By: Walter Hill Starring: James Spader, Peter Facinelli, Robin Tunney About:  Supernova chronicles the search and rescue patrol of a medical ship in deep space in the early 22nd century and its six-member crew which includes a captain and pilot, a co-pilot, a medical officer, a medical technician, a search and rescue. 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

The Incantation (film review)

Film: The Incantation Year: 2018 Genre: Adventure, Fantasy, Horror Directed By: Jude S. Walko Starring: Dean Cain, Sam Valentine, Jude S. 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
