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

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 …

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…

Time Travel - Roxanne San Jose (book review)

Book: Time Travel
Author: Roxanne San Jose
Genre: Sci-fi
Published By: Avid Publishing LLC
Published Year: 2019

My Review:
Being given a free copy of Time Travel for an honest review I decided to give this a read. Having thought it sounded interesting I was looking forward to seeing how this book would go forward and although this book had some good ideas I don't feel like this book was fully finished.

Time Travel is about a girl who invents a time machine and when coming home from the future finds that her boyfriend has went to the past and gotten himself stuck there so tries to get him back while making friends along the way.

I liked that this book had that when the couple went to the future and came across a robot went on an adventure with it after knowing it had been abandoned for a long time. Not only this but by having the main girl character Angelie come back for the robot when her boyfriend goes missing and asks for his help was really sweet and really helped to connect those ch…
