My Review:
Feeling in the mood to see a romance movie I couldn't resist in watching one of my favourites called P.S. I Love You. This movie never fails to make me tear up and unable to look away from the screen.

I really like how the movie is taken place after the death of her husband and he is helping her to move on with her life by making her do different things and going to places in which she would not usually go in order to bring her back to the woman he loved. By sending her letters you can tell how much he loved her and that although he is no longer there he doesn't want her to just give up on her life and wants her to be the best person she can be. Having the movie also show the memories in which she is having with her late husband makes this film really sweet as the watcher is able to connect with both of the characters and really believe in their love and why the husband decides to do what he does. While this is going on having another character start to fall for her and want to be there for her is really sweet and you do hope for the two to get together even though by the ending you realise that they shouldn't be and are better as close friends. Another thing I do really like about this is that at the ending of the movie the watcher discovers that it is the mother who has been sending the letters for the husband and how even though she didn't like him she couldn't say no to his last wish especially when it helps her to heal even though it doesn't seem like it at the time. With the ending also showing that she might be able to move on with someone that her husband was friends with and helped to bring her to is really sweet and leaves the person watching believing that she will be able to be loved again and is opening herself up to being with someone else due to her late husbands help. The acting within this movie is something in which I love and makes the film really believable to me which really brings me into the movie.

Personally, I couldn't fault this film and is one that I really enjoy watching. I would recommend this film to those who are looking for a romance movie and one about moving on from the death of a loved one as it is amazing as both. This is definitely a movie I will watch again!

My Rating: 5/5

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 …
