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

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

The Incantation (film review)

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
