My Review:
Having never heard of this movie before and knowing nothing about it before I watched it I thought that I would choose something in which looked rather cute to me and with being a lover of dogs this seemed to meet the criteria. This film was a good watch and one that I am glad that I decided to put on thanks to Netflix.

I really liked how this film at the beginning showed how humans were able to talk to dogs and how that evolution took place in order to understand how dogs were able to talk to humans and be able to understood. This really helped to set up the film and with it having to do with a dog singing competition helped to show how humans were able to enjoy them even though dogs were mostly in control. Another thing about this film in which I thought was a really great addition was that all of the dogs which were in the pound with Tiny after she got stolen were able to find homes and an owner which was perfect for them along their journey, I loved this as it made the dogs seem a lot more real as well as make the audience care a lot more for the dogs within the movie. Having the audience not really understand why Bark and Charlie had problems with each other until near the end was something I found helped to keep my attention throughout the movie and kept me wondering what really happened between them and why Bark was so determined to get rid of Charlie. The singing within this movie was really well done in my opinion and I thought was really sweet showing different styles of music throughout it with the different breeds of dog. Finally, I really liked the humour which was in Pup Star and it did make me smile and laugh on a couple of occasions which is something in which I was looking for when I started this movie.

Unfortunately, there was problems with this movie as well such as the CGI within the film which you could tell was not perfect throughout the movie and did make some of the scenes not as good as they could have been while also making the scene seem more amateur. Not only this but I found that at points my attention kept leaving the movie which is something which did disappoint me as it was a film in which was a good watch and something that was really easy viewing.

Overall, I did like this movie and glad I did give Pup Star a watch as it was enjoyable and something which was very easy watching which is something in which I was looking for. I would recommend this movie to families who are looking for a movie to watch together as well as those who are looking for an adventure movie which involves dogs. I would watch this film again but it isn't something in which I could watch all of the time.

My Rating: 3/5

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nt9L1jCKGnE

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…

Mute (film review)

Film: Mute
Year: 2018
Genre: Mystery, Sci-fi, Thriller
Starring: Alexander Skarsgard, Paul Rudd, Justin Theroux
About: A mute bartender goes up against his city's gangsters in an effort to find out what happened to his missing partner.

My Review: 
Seeing this come up on my recommended for me on Netflix I decided to see if this would be any good. Liking Alexander Skarsgard as an actor, seeing him in a different role than I usually see him in really intrigued me.

The film is about a man called Leo who is a mute and when his girlfriend goes missing tries to find her any way that he can. At the same time the audience is seeing a man who seems to be involved in crime and who is trying to leave the country to go back to America.

I found that this film had a slower plot than I would have personally liked and it could have been more in depth with the movie however it was a good watch that I would see again. I also think that this highlights Alexander Skarsgard's acting ability as he is a m…

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 …
