My Review:
Having seen the cast of this movie and realising I like almost the whole cast I couldn't resist but to give this a watch and I was very happily surprised by this film!

I thought that this film was really good in that it showed how the hotel is very private and only people with the correct chip in them were going to be able to get in and cured by the nurse who runs the Hotel Artemis and only those who are criminals. By showing how some of the main characters of this movie ended up at the hotel was also something that brought the characters all together right away and make the watcher feel more for the characters involved within this movie. As the story carries on and fights and deaths start to happen within the movie this is something I am glad happened as it let me feel for the deaths and let me understand more of the characters. Also by having the nurse having extreme anxiety I thought was a good touch as it showed how experiences change people and how difficult it is for those who have anxiety and other mental health issues and they are not able to be fixed the same way as just healing the human body. By also showing that part of the reason for this is the death of her son and then later in the movie finding out why he ended up dying was something that ended up shocking me within the movie and feel sorry for the nurse, especially when the watcher discovers it is by the same person who actually helped her to make Hotel Artemis. As the movie comes to near the ending and the crime lords son breaks into the hotel I felt worried for the security guy who was working there who ended up getting mobbed by his thugs who with at the ending of the movie turned the lights back on and the person seeing the movie discovers is still alive I felt so happy as I found him to be a character in which I really felt for. I also thought it was sweet for the female assassin to have stayed and fight the mob thugs as well to help the person who she loved escape with his life as her way for saying sorry for killing his brother by mistake. The acting within this movie from all of those involved was really well done and made this film a huge success in my opinion and really helped to bring this movie to life.

I did wish however that there was more understanding about why there was the riots all over the city and what made the city like a war zone as a result of this as this was not touched upon and I feel could have made light of some of the questions I had about the movie as a whole. The only other thing I wish this movie showed was the other crime bosses in which were around and that was paying the assassin in order to kill the head of Los Angeles as we don't know anything about them except that they hired the female assassin.

Overall, Hotel Artemis was a great action movie and one with an amazing cast within it. I would highly recommend this film to those who are looking for an action movie and those who like crime. I am definitely going to be watching this movie again and look forward to spotting things I didn't my first time seeing it.

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…
