My Review:
Feeling like something that would be very easy watching and more of a romance movie I was happy when Set It Up appeared on my Netflix and thought that this would be perfect. This really happily surprised me and I am so happy this is the movie I chose.

I thought by having the two assistants both overworked and realising something had to be done in order to try and give them some time to have some social life was something that really helped to show how the two people needed a break and so teamed up together for their bosses. By keeping this only between them and setting up situations to bring the bosses together such as; getting stuck in an elevator together and kiss cam at a baseball game it was sweet to see how the two assistants worked together. Also having the male in a bad relationship and the woman unable to find love due to always working it set up for them noticing each other and falling for each other really nicely and didn't seem like the movie was forcing their romance. This was also really well done for the comedy in which was in this movie, it wasn't forced which did make me really like this movie and kept me wanting to see what happens next with all four of the characters (the two bosses and the two assistants). Another thing I did like was the ending of the movie when the assistants decide to tell the woman boss how their made the situations happen and how the male boss knew nothing about her and she deserved a lot better than him as it helped to show that sometimes people need someone else to show them the truth before they are able to see it themselves. By the female boss at the very end also bringing the assistants together realising that they are good for each other was really sweet and did make me smile.

I can't think of any bad points in this movie and think that this is a great rom-com which people should definitely watch if they are after a really sweet and warming movie. I am so glad that I seen this and will definitely be watching this again.

My Rating: 5/5

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

Film: Supernova Year: 2000 Genre: Horror, Sci-fi, Thriller Directed By: Walter Hill Starring: James Spader, Peter Facinelli, Robin Tunney About:  Supernova chronicles the search and rescue patrol of a medical ship in deep space in the early 22nd century and its six-member crew which includes a captain and pilot, a co-pilot, a medical officer, a medical technician, a search and rescue. 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
