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

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

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

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
