My Review:
Having a look through my Netflix "To Watch List" I came across this film and wanting a nice and relaxing movie in which wouldn't take a lot of attention to watch I thought that this would be perfect and I was glad I did see this.

I found that this movie was really sweet and great for children who are looking for a nice adventure movie. I thought by having it crossing water knowing the animals are scared of water made it a nice change as well as I loved how they had to go through various different situations in order to find the mayor of their city. Having to go through pirates, a dragon and then a black sea all to find an island in which people find difficult to find. Having on the return journey them realising that the dragon was just someone who was lonely and wanted to have friends and other people around him even though he was going about it the wrong way and that the pirates also just wanted to be part of a community and were not as scary as they were trying to be at all. I thought showing this showed how people are not always who you think they are but by getting to know them you can see that sometimes they are lonely and just need people around them to understand them.

I thought this movie was rather too young for me however and did get me a little bored at times making my attention drift away from the movie which wasn't great and did make me rate this movie down a little bit. I also thought that this movie could have showed more character development as except from the elephant who learned to take control and to not be as scared everyone else seemed to stay the same throughout.

Overall, this would be a great film for children who are looking for an animation movie and one with an adventure which has nothing at all scary within it. I don't think I would personally see this again but it was a nice movie to see and one that is great for just relaxing to.

My Rating: 3/5

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…
