My Review:
Seeing The Titan on Netflix I thought that I would check it out as it was a sci-fi/thriller and new to 2018. This film was how I expected it to be and I was rather glad to have watched it.

The Titan is about a group of people who go through experiments in order to lower their oxygen levels and get them ready to go to the planet Titan in order to see if there is a chance that the human race could live outside of Earth. However the experiment is not what it seems.

I thought that this film was rather interesting and showed how to enhance human evolution in order to better the human race but also showed the side effects and how dangerous that it can be. By also keeping the families of the people close the audience was able to see how the family felt while their loved one was going through the experiment and how much the character was going through and changing from the beginning to the end. I thought by keeping some of the experiment a little secret till near the end of the movie it made the film more interesting and kept a little twist for the end of the movie. The casting for The Titan was also really well done and made me connect more with the characters due to casting which made the audience care for the characters. I also thought that having the very ending with the only person who survived the experiments having went to Titan showed how it was possible for making human evolution happen faster.

This movie however didn't go really into how they made the injections to make human evolution go faster and how more than only a couple of the people went on with the experiment. Also with the surgery when the person's skin went extremely different and paler it didn't explain how this happened.

I did think that this movie was good overall and a film I would see again. I would recommend this film to those looking for a sci-fi movie and one to do with human evolution.

My Rating: 4/5

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…
