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

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nt9L1jCKGnE

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 …
