My Review:
Having not seen Brave in years I thought it would be a perfect movie to watch which would make me feel proud as a Scottish person while watching an animation movie.

I really like that this movie has clans which is something that is a huge part of Scotland's past and by having really common Scottish names it gave it more of a Scottish feel to the movie. Having a lead character in which doesn't want to be married off and wants to be her own person I think is a really key thing for people to watch and for children to know that it is okay to not be what your parents want you to be as long as you are happy. As the main character is also the person in which saves the day at the end of the movie as well I feel that this is different from a lot of Disney movies and one that is a great message to girls that they can do things themselves and they don't need a man to help them out of a bad situation. The comedy within the movie is very well done and it is done in a way which is things in which Scottish people would do which does make me relate to this movie a lot, having one of the character's no-one understands I do find rather funny as it is something which people can relate to when speaking to people. I do think that the accents within the movie are also done well and something in which can be praised for the actors and actresses within the movie. With having a story line which shows how a child can hate what her parents and trying to fix that bond by bringing them together I thought was really good and shows that sometimes you just need to find a common ground and fix the relationship from just spending time together and doing some fun activities together.

The only fault with this movie I feel is that there is not enough information about when the other bear was turned from the witch and what really happened within that clan to make none of them still alive and how he is still alive if it was meant to be a legend.

Overall, this is a brilliant movie which shows woman can do anything they set their minds to and don't need to depend on men. It also shows the importance of family! I would recommend this movie to those who are looking for an animation movie with an important message. This movie would also be good for those who are looking for an adventure movie. I very highly recommend this film and can't wait to watch 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

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

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
