My Review:
Having not seen this movie in a while I thought it would be a great time to watch it again and remember just how funny it is. I am not usually a fan of old films only as I am not a fan of black and white movies however this is one that does make me laugh and is a rare exception for me.

I really like how this movie is funny and focuses on the story of the plant and how the plant grows into eating people. Having the characters who get eaten people in which you don't like and some that make you laugh is a great way of making you side with the plant and the young man who has had the unfortunate opportunity of discovering him. I also thought it was good to see how the owner of the shop wasn't a fan of the man and made it clear however loved him when he was able to get more money into his shop which I thought was rather funny but also seemed rather relateable for those who do work. I do also like how this film described the plant as Dracula and then afterwards showed how the plant hypnotized him like Renfield which I thought was a really clever! By doing this it showed how the plant was able to control people into doing its bidding and in order to get food.

The only thing about this film in which I didn't like which is a personal thing is that it is in Black and White which did make it hurt my eyes after a while and when trying to see some of the darker scenes it was difficult to make out what was really happening.

Overall, I think that Little Shop of Horrors is a great comedy/horror film from the past which I am glad got a remake and is still recognised as a classic to this day. I would recommend this film to those who are looking for a older film to watch which doesn't show any gore but has some horror within it as well as something in which will make you laugh. This is a film in which I will watch again however, not all of the time and as more of a treat watch once in a while.

My Rating: 4/5

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…
