My Review:
Having seen the other two movies in the trilogy which consists of Unbreakable and Split, I could not resist but to see Glass the first chance I got and I was not disappointed!

This movie carries on from the ending of Split perfectly in which the beast is still around and killing people but this time with the difference of David trying to stop him. While trying however they end up in a psych ward and I liked that they done this as it kept the movie more to the real world in which they were hoping for. Having it so that someone would try to help them get better and stop delusions of being a super hero when they are just a normal person. By showing more of the personalities that Kevin had within him and James McAvoy bringing to life is amazing to watch and really shows how good an actor he really is by highlighting his talents. I really liked how they also showed more of the beast who isn't really shown much in Split and how he is just trying to protect Kevin any way that he can even if that means killing people. By also showing how David was wanting to stop him and keep the public safe against villains however having The Beast as his main enemy was something I did like which brought the two movies together. By also adding the character of Glass into it who did end up creating both of the superheros by the train catastrophe was something I thought was really clever. I did really like how the girl who The Beast decided to keep alive in Split is able to get through to all of the personalities in which Kevin has within him and keep him calm as he won't hurt her showing that he was able to love and that there was hope for the Beast not to fully take over Kevin. With also having the ending of the movie with the three leaf clover was something that left the audience wondering who these people were and how they ended up getting together in order to stop people who were like Kevin, Glass and David. Also who else they had stopped in the past which leaves the audience open to their own thoughts about what happens next and who these people are. Finally, I really liked how the public got to see that there was people who were different from them and more like superheros than normal people so that people were not being kept quiet and the legacy of their loved ones would be able to carry on even after their deaths. 

The only thing about this movie in which I wasn't that fond of was how much slower this movie seemed to feel compared to the other two in the trilogy. However, as this fit the movie I thought that this was not a huge deal for me. I also thought that it left the movie a little too open at the ending of the movie with the public knowing about the superhuman people who are around them as well as how the people who have been tattood with the three leaf clover might handle the situation.

Overall, this movie is one that people should not miss and for those who are fans of Unbreakable and Split this is one that you need to see in order to finish the trilogy. I would say that you need to watch the other movies before seeing this one as otherwise this film wont make as much sense and would confuse you. I look forward to watching this film again and catching parts I feel I might have missed with my first time viewing.

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…
