My Review:
Being a fan of John Wick and realising that a third movie was on it's way I was excited to give this a watch at the first opportunity I had and with all of the action within it, it did not disappoint.

I loved that from the very beginning of this movie till the very end scene was full of action and killing which is how people know John Wick. I thought by doing this it kept really true for the fans of the franchise and with everyone against John Wick showed how great an assassin he really is. Having from the very beginning how people who helped John Wick at all also getting punished I thought made this more real and showed how the the High Table would not stand for anyone helping him after he killed one of their own. With showing how the king was taken off of his throne and being cut seven times for giving John seven bullets and at the very ending seeing him want to bring down the table, which makes him save John in order to get him on side was a great way of leading into a forth movie! Showing how John's friend Winston was determined to keep his power and so much so as to after having John Wick not kill him and to help save his hotel ended up shooting him was so expected but couldn't help feeling sorry on John for putting his trust in someone in which didn't care about him. Having a character in this movie say that they also looked up to John and make the audience laugh at times was something which I did like as even though this movie was full of action made this movie lighter at moments which did stop it from being serious all the way through which I did personally like.

However, this film did have some faults in my opinion, I found that this movie although had a lot of action and was a great bridge movie for the forth movie to come in didn't really focus enough on the plot of the film which I was rather disappointed with as I feel that they could have done more with the High Table rather than just a quick moment. Not only this but some of the deaths within John Wick: Chapter 3- Parabellum were really not believable and just rather funny to see which was a good change of pace at times but felt that some of the shots within those scenes could have been better. The only other thing about this movie that I will put as a negative however wasn't really a problem for myself was that you needed to know the previous movies to fully understand why John was being hunted down and could come across confusing to people in which haven't seen the previous movies.

Overall, this is a great addition to the John Wick series of movies and one that is very action packed. I would recommend this film to those who are fans of John Wick and people who are fans of action movies as this one has action non-stop throughout it. I will definitely see this movie again but as part of the series and not as a stand alone movie.

My Rating: 4/5

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

Walko About:  A young American girl has a chance of a lifetime to visit her ancestors castle in the south of France, only to find that her family is hiding deep, dark secrets about their nefarious past, far away from prying eyes. 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
