My Review:
With less than a week till Christmas and hearing a lot of good things about this movie I thought that I should check out The Christmas Chronicles and I am so glad I did as it is one of the best Christmas movies that I have ever seen.

This film was brilliant in showing how Santa worked and how the elves was able to help Santa bring all of the presents all around the world. As well as this by having the mum's Christmas wish from the beginning coming true by bringing the bother and sister together was a great way of bringing this movie together and also giving this film the idea that even adults can get their Christmas wishes coming true. The Christmas Chronicles made me laugh throughout as well as completely kept my attention throughout which made me feel so relaxed and by having the seriousness, comedy, drama and action parts of this film as well as a little music and bringing everyone getting Christmas spirit made me really get into the spirit of Christmas and love this film. I did think that Kurt Russell made a brilliant Santa and one I didn't expect out of him. Animation and CGI was a big part of this movie as well and I feel that it was done amazingly well and just improved this movie to me.

I would highly recommend this film to those looking to get into the Christmas spirit and one that doesn't feel childish at all and perfect for all of the family. I am definitely adding this to one of my favourite holiday movies and already can't wait to see it again!

My Rating: 5/5

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

I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained. Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the b

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4F3Sn-Xzzo My Review: Wanting a style of film I don't usually watch but do enjoy I decided to watch the stalker movie that is My Teacher, My Obsession  which is based on an English teacher who starts at a new school. However, when one of the students gets obsessed with him she will do anything to be with him including secluding him from everyone else. I liked the foreshadowing at the beginning of the movie which matched up to the ending very well and shows how throughout the movie that this was coming up. I also liked how the film showed how the stude
