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

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
