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:
Having been a huge fan of the MCU and being really excited for this movie since Infinity War came out in 2018 I couldn't wait to see this at the midnight release. I have waited a little while before uploading this review and that was so that when spoilers came up it was after the time in which Marvel said it was okay to do so.This is a film which I was so scared to watch but also so excited as well and really didn't want to see come to an end knowing this is the last for some of the characters within the Marvel Universe in which people are…

The Hidden People - Alison Littlewood (book review)

Book: The Hidden People
Author: Alison Littlewood
Genre: Horror, Fantasy, Historical
Published By: Jo Fletcher Books
Published Year: 2016

My Review:
Taking part in the OWL'S Readathon I needed a book which met the prompt of "Plant on the Cover" and after putting a poll on Twitter which had the choice of three different books this is the one that came out on top. As a result I ended up with this book and although seeming interested in it from the back of the book I found that this book did not grab me as much as I wish it did.

The book is about a man who's cousin dies so he goes to try and find out the truth about her death and upon getting to the village of Halfoak finds that the people are really into superstition and believed his cousin to be a fairy and not of this world. However, when his wife gets there he starts to think that maybe there is some truth in the tales the people were saying.

I found that this book was really slow for my personal taste and I couldn't…

Goosebumps: Don't Feed The Vampire - R.L. Stine (book review)

Book: Goosebumps: Please Don't Feed The Vampire
Author: R.L. Stine
Genre: Children's, Horror
Published By: Scholastic
Published Year: 1997

My Review:
Taking part in the OWL'S Readathon a subject I had was Care of Magical Creatures which had the prompt of "Land Animal on the Cover" because of this I thought it would be the perfect time to go back to a book I loved when I was younger called Goosebumps: Please Don't Feed The Vampire. Which I ended up still enjoying even though I am now an adult.

The book is one where the reader is able to make the decisions of the book and from the beginning there is two different routes in which the reader is able to take. The first is a story where the reader becomes a vampire and gets to choose how they deal with becoming one from trying to become human again to also staying a vampire. The other is where the dog becomes a vampire instead!

I personally think that this book is great for engaging readers with letting them choose what…
