John Wick (film review)


Film: John Wick 
Year: 2014
Genre: Action, Crime, Thriller
Directed By: Chad Stahelski, David Leitch
Starring: Keanu Reeves, Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen 
About: An ex-hit-man comes out of retirement to track down the gangsters that killed his dog and took everything from him.

My Review:
Noticing that John Wick was on TV and that I hadn't seen it in a while I decided to give it a watch, this is a film in which I have always enjoyed and being a fan of Keanu Reeves couldn't wait to see again. 

This is a film in which I love the action within it and by showing the reasons why he is going after the gangsters. Showing that John is already going through grief when they make it worse and wants revenge by leaving him with nothing from his wife and nothing to love by killing the dog in which his wife gave him as a last present from her. Personally, I really like how much the audience is able to see how scared of John everyone is and how he is a hit-man that it not to be messed with by showing how dangerous he is and how easy he is able to kill those in which he is hunting down. Something else I like about this movie is that even though there is a contract out for John Wick for him to be killed one of his friends who has been hired even though he has opportunities to kill him tries to help him any chance that he is able to by saving his life numerous times. However, as his friend dies and John gets even angrier it is good to see how he is loyal to his friends and goes after the man who killed him in order to get revenge. Another thing in which I think is rather cool is that the hotel in which John stays at is a safe haven and when the bosses of it learn that the rules have been broken hunt down the person and kill them so that they are no longer being disrespectful. This makes me happy as it shows that even though they are against the law they still have rules in which need to be stuck to. The casting of this movie I think is really well done and fits the movie perfectly! 

Overall, I think that this movie is an amazing action film and one that always keeps me captivated all of the way through it. I would recommend this film to those who are looking for a good action movie and one that is about revenge! I would definitely watch this movie again. 

My Rating: 5/5

My Review:
Loving Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle I knew I had to see this movie when it came out and luckily managed to see it in the cinema. With the cast of this film being amazing and the first one being one of my favourite releases of 2017/18 I was worried that this wouldn't have the same effect but I am so glad that I was wrong.

Jumanji: The Next Level is amazing at bringing the humour back to the movie for a second time around and it doesn't feel forced or like it us unoriginal or used up from the last movie which I am so happy about. …

About: The dramatic story of the cutthroat race between electricity titans Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse to determine whose electrical system would power the modern world
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kue18AxK1tU

My Review:
Having wanted to see The Current War since it was in the cinema after seeing how it had an incredible cast of actors in which I already like I knew I had to see it once it came onto DVD. Not only this but not knowing much about the electricity feud this was a subject in which I found myself really interested in which made me enjoy this film a lot more than I had expected.

I thought that it was good how it showed the rivalry between both Edison and Westinghouse and how Edison was willing to tarnish his name in order to get ahead and even go against his own beliefs in order to try and win the…

Blood Demons - Richard Jeffries (book review)

Book: Blood Demons
Author: Richard Jeffries
Genre: Horror
Published By: Kensington Books
Published Year: 2018

My Review:
Slowly lowering the books in which are on my Netgalley account I decided to read one that has been there for a while which is Blood Demons by Richard Jeffries which I thought looked really interesting and as I rarely read horror books thought it would make a good change for me.

Blood Demons is about a bombing which happens at Mount Rushmore and there is no blood found at the scene a specialized department called Cerberus is called in to try and find out what happened and leads to the finding of the beginning of the legend which is vampires. Not only this they feel that they are ready to dominate the world.

I thought that this book had a really good idea behind it and I really liked how it had a team that just deals with supernatural types of crimes just to make sure people had safety. Not only this but by having the book about the history of vampires I found that it was a…
