My Review: 
Wanting something different to watch I thought I would go for the movie Cam which is available to watch on Netflix and although it kept my attention this film did rather disappoint me.

With the film being about a camgirl I was rather intrigued about how this would end up as a horror and was looking forward to the development of the movie and did keep my interest in that she gets taken over by someone who looks like her even though not herself. I also liked that through this the watcher was able to see how Lola was reacting to someone impersonating her and the trouble in which she was going through by having the tech support not helping her and her friends not doing anything to help either. Having also later in the movie realising that this is not the only person in which this has happened to and that one used in which watches her and moved close to her knew it was going to happen and helps Lola to discover that she is not the only person in which this happened to is good for the viewer to see. By also showing that Lola has kept this from her family and it getting uncovered and her family having to deal with the fact she is a camgirl was something in which made this film well made to me as it showed how family even when they are angry and disapprove of your life choices can also learn to move past it for the love of their family and keep to them safe later. Having Lola also in the movie when she has all but given up end up on a stream with the other version of herself to try and prove that the impostor is fake and manages to delete the account in order to stop it was good at showing how in the end having to stop the thing you love can sometimes be the only option, not only this but by having the ending show her making a new account was good at showing the audience and telling them that if you have a love or passion for something even if things go badly wrong you should never give up what you love and trying to make your dreams come true especially if it is something that makes you happy.

There was a lot with this movie however in which I wasn't a fan of such as how they left a lot of questions unanswered such as how Tinker was able to find her and move to her city in order to be closer to her. It also left questions about how the impersonator worked as this wasn't answered at all and left me rather frustrated with the movie especially as the ending seemed like it led to nothing. With also having joint shows in which were made it did question how this was all possible especially as one of the girls was dead which made part of this movie make no sense to me and with zero answers left me rather confused. Finally, this film was not really a horror movie at all so wasn't really put into the horror style of movies in my opinion which did make this film a disappointment.

Overall, this movie left a lot unanswered however did have a good story to follow. I would recommend this movie to teenagers who want a thriller movie and based about the internet. I would watch this movie again however to see if there were parts I missed while watching it for the first time.

My Rating: 3/5

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nt9L1jCKGnE

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…

Mute (film review)

Film: Mute
Year: 2018
Genre: Mystery, Sci-fi, Thriller
Starring: Alexander Skarsgard, Paul Rudd, Justin Theroux
About: A mute bartender goes up against his city's gangsters in an effort to find out what happened to his missing partner.

My Review: 
Seeing this come up on my recommended for me on Netflix I decided to see if this would be any good. Liking Alexander Skarsgard as an actor, seeing him in a different role than I usually see him in really intrigued me.

The film is about a man called Leo who is a mute and when his girlfriend goes missing tries to find her any way that he can. At the same time the audience is seeing a man who seems to be involved in crime and who is trying to leave the country to go back to America.

I found that this film had a slower plot than I would have personally liked and it could have been more in depth with the movie however it was a good watch that I would see again. I also think that this highlights Alexander Skarsgard's acting ability as he is a m…

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 …
