My Review:
Looking through Netflix this movie grabbed my attention so knowing nothing about it I decided that this would be a good movie to watch. Heading into this initially thinking that it would be a horror I was gladly surprised that it wasn't and how real this movie felt.

I really liked how Face 2 Face showed how people can look happy and like everything is okay when really there is hidden darkness within people and unless someone wants you to see that side of them you wouldn't be able to see it. Showing how the friends reconnect and try to help each other is such a sweet thing to see and really made me happy for both of the characters to have someone in which they were able to talk to. By also making the friends reconnect through online I thought that this was something in which people would be able to associate with as a lot of time is spent online rather than offline especially when it comes to friendships. By helping each other through small things at first such as getting her the guy she likes and helping him to get friends I thought this was a god way of getting into each others problems before the getting beat up because he is gay, suicidal thoughts and rape. By having the ending of the movie actually having him go and get her so that she could get out o that situation was something I thought that was really good and how she was being kept away from her father as a result.

I did however think that at times the script between the two characters was rather lacking but this did pick up throughout the movie. I did also find it hard to see what was written on the screen when they were only chatting on the messenger side and not on a video call which did make me a little annoyed and wished it would be a bit bigger.

Overall, this is a great drama movie and one that I think shows the importance of friendship and that everyone can be hiding things that are dark within their lives. I would recommend this movie to those who are are looking for a teenage drama movie and those who are looking for a movie which is relevant to the modern day. I would watch this movie again!

My Rating: 4/5

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 …
