My Review:
Having not seen Home in years and buying it after looking for it for ages I was extremely happy to give this movie another watch. Knowing this was a film I enjoyed the first time I seen it I had high expectations of this film and what I was expecting and I am so glad to have this film surprise me by having me enjoy it even more than previously.

I love how this film starts with showing how the Boov keep running away from their enemies which I think sets the atmosphere for the movie really well. With only one of them seeming different and that being Oh I like how it shows how he is just wanting to be friends with people and makes mistakes like everyone however wants to fix them as much as he possibly can. With finding a human girl and learning from her about family and the need for friendship I thought it was really sweet and created an amazing bond between the alien and the human as well as making the audience want them to survive together. Not only this humour throughout this film helped to keep it nice and light which is perfect for children while also having a more emotional impact when the girl finally gets reunited with her mother after being away from her because of the aliens and thinking they will never see each other again. Not only that but by showing how far family will go to get back to each other and the love for each other helped Oh to discover why the aliens they were running away from was searching for them and it was because they had the young of that species in which the leader of the Boov had stolen from them which could have made their race extinct. The animation throughout was really well done as well and helped to create the atmosphere and make this movie a great experience in which I found it really easy to get lost in.

Overall, this is a great animation movie in which I would recommend for the whole family as well as for those who are looking for a comedy movie. This is definitely a movie I will see again and I can't think of any faults with it.

My Rating: 5/5

My Review:
Having been a huge fan of the MCU and being really excited for this movie since Infinity War came out in 2018 I couldn't wait to see this at the midnight release. I have waited a little while before uploading this review and that was so that when spoilers came up it was after the time in which Marvel said it was okay to do so.This is a film which I was so scared to watch but also so excited as well and really didn't want to see come to an end knowing this is the last for some of the characters within the Marvel Universe in which people are…

The Hidden People - Alison Littlewood (book review)

Book: The Hidden People
Author: Alison Littlewood
Genre: Horror, Fantasy, Historical
Published By: Jo Fletcher Books
Published Year: 2016

My Review:
Taking part in the OWL'S Readathon I needed a book which met the prompt of "Plant on the Cover" and after putting a poll on Twitter which had the choice of three different books this is the one that came out on top. As a result I ended up with this book and although seeming interested in it from the back of the book I found that this book did not grab me as much as I wish it did.

The book is about a man who's cousin dies so he goes to try and find out the truth about her death and upon getting to the village of Halfoak finds that the people are really into superstition and believed his cousin to be a fairy and not of this world. However, when his wife gets there he starts to think that maybe there is some truth in the tales the people were saying.

I found that this book was really slow for my personal taste and I couldn't…

Goosebumps: Don't Feed The Vampire - R.L. Stine (book review)

Book: Goosebumps: Please Don't Feed The Vampire
Author: R.L. Stine
Genre: Children's, Horror
Published By: Scholastic
Published Year: 1997

My Review:
Taking part in the OWL'S Readathon a subject I had was Care of Magical Creatures which had the prompt of "Land Animal on the Cover" because of this I thought it would be the perfect time to go back to a book I loved when I was younger called Goosebumps: Please Don't Feed The Vampire. Which I ended up still enjoying even though I am now an adult.

The book is one where the reader is able to make the decisions of the book and from the beginning there is two different routes in which the reader is able to take. The first is a story where the reader becomes a vampire and gets to choose how they deal with becoming one from trying to become human again to also staying a vampire. The other is where the dog becomes a vampire instead!

I personally think that this book is great for engaging readers with letting them choose what…
