My Review:
Having not seen the second in the Jurassic World series, I thought this would be a perfect time for me to give it a watch especially after really enjoying the first one.

I thought that this movie was really good and I liked how it was set years after the destruction of the park in the first movie. By doing this it kept the timeline on track but also made the audience care more for the dinosaurs and the danger in which they are in due to already being introduced in the previous movie, especially Blue! By having people come and abduct Blue in order to use her to create a weapon for a dinosaur which would be able to understand commands and be the perfect killing machine. By also showing how people were selling the dinosaurs in order to gain  money I thought that this was something which felt real as this is something which would end up happening if dinosaurs were currently alive. Having the little girl as well which is related to the person who helped to bring them back to life and the twist that she was actually a clone of his daughter was something I didn't see coming and did end up shocking me! I do love that the T-Rex seems to only kill those in which are threatening the rest of the dinosaurs in this movie and shows how it is one of the most caring dinosaurs that is there as well as Blue who always seems to protect Owen when he is in danger due to having grown up with him. The ending of this film when the dinosaurs become free made me really happy, especially as there was a chance that they would die due to lack of oxygen. Showing how the dinosaurs are no longer in captivity but able to roam the world and find their own place was something I did think was really sweet and something that made me smile. However, I am wondering what is happening to the dinosaurs in which was already sold before Owen was able to free them.

The only thing about this movie in which I thought wasn't great was there was a couple of plot holes which left questions for the audience however these might be able to get filled in if they decide to make a third movie. I did think that there could have been more background on the character of Mills as to find out why he was the successor to the fortune and why he feels the need to sell the dinosaurs instead of saving them and going against what would have been his initial love for them. I also thought that the child screaming at the ending so much was rather annoying and wish she would scream less as it made me start to dislike her character, even though her character had a good story.

Overall, I do think that this is a great movie and one that made me really care for the dinosaurs more than in the first movie. I would recommend this to people who do like dinosaurs and would like a good action movie. I am definitely going to be watching this again!

My Rating: 5/5

Sahara (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: Sahara Year: 2017 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Pierre Core Starring: Omar Sy, Louane Emera, Franck Gastambide About:  A young cobra and his scorpion best friend go on a journey across the Sahara desert to save a new-found love Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3IRkT9JsqM My Review: Having a movie day I came across Sahara when on Netflix and having no expectations about this film and also not knowing what it was about I thought that it would be the perfect film to blog about. I did think that this was a cute adventure movie but would be better suited to a younger audience than myself. I found that this film was really sweet that the snake wanted to go across the desert in order to find a snake in which he found he felt a connection with even though they were different kinds and also from different worlds. I also thought by having the girls brother being a drug addict and struggling with wanting more drugs and wanting to leave his sister w

Mysteries and Secrets of Magic - C.J.S. Thompson (book review)

Book: Mysteries and Secrets of Magic Author: C.J.S. Thompson Published By: Senate Published Year: 1927 My Review:  As this book is a non-fiction book about magic I did find this rather interesting to read however it seemed like this novel was more of a tester to see what kind of topic you would be most interested in with it only having short amounts on various topics such as: Supernatural Beings, Greek and Roman Magic, Magical Numbers, The Grimoires or Handbook of Black Magic, Magic in Shakespeare's Plays and many more. This did however teach me about magic that I didn't know about and now want to look more into as a result of this book and discover more about the magic of the past as well if there is any use of magic in the world now as we know it in 2018 almost 100 years after this book was first published. I would recommend this book to those who would like to know more about magic however don't know what they would like to learn as this will help you know what as
