My Review:
Having missed seeing this in the cinema, I had to watch this when it got released onto physical formats. Adoring the first film and having watched it a few days prior I was excited to see what happens in the second movie and if it would live up to first movie.

I love that Ralph Breaks The Internet continues on from the first movie really well and tells us that it has been six years that the main characters have been friends for and how Vanellope is starting to get bored of her game and wants more excitement in her life. By also showing how Wi-fi became a part of the arcade and how scared the games are of it as it has the chance to close down the games as online games are becoming popular with a younger crowd. I also thought by having Vanellope get bored of her game and when going into the internet finding a game in which excited her and that she wanted to be a part of it was good in showing how people change and sometimes people need to find something new and break their normal routine so that they no longer feel stuck and sad by doing the same thing all of the time. Not only this but by showing how Ralph didn't want Vanellope to change and how it took him a while and to see just how jealous and bad a friend he was being to see that he was no being the friend in which he should be and was instead holding her back from who she really wanted to be. Showing that sometimes letting someone go is actually the best thing to do for your friends and that not seeing them all of the time isn't a bad thing and that people are able to communicate in other ways such as through a video call and can enjoy their time together more after they are reunited. By having the wheel of Vanellope's game break and them try to make the money any way that they could through the internet was something I thought was a cool way of introducing the internet the characters and how there are also virus's which are able to break games but are the dark web, having the different sides of the internet was something I thought was really cool and really made the internet come across as more real. Not only this but I thought it was enjoyable seeing how streaming sites worked within that world where pop ups are just characters with jobs and how they get money from the people who go to the site and give love on others while also able to drag people to their videos. Showing how the people in real life also liked the videos of Ralph and made them remember their childhood as well as only last a couple of moments I thought seemed real as it shows how people are able to get noticed however people will forget very shortly afterwards and you will become yesterdays news. Not only this but by showing how negative the internet can be was something I was so glad they showed within this movie from showing how happy Ralph was about his videos and the people watching them to seeing negative comments which made him feel not good enough and that people didn't actually like him when there was actually people who loved him as well. Showing how people need to stop focusing on what people they don't know and online say about them and just do what they feel makes them happy and focus on the people around them. Finally, I loved how Ralph made videos for viral videos and showed what they were as well as having the final end scene being a Rick Role which was a huge viral success in the past and how he made it his own. The animation within Ralph Breaks The Internet is brilliantly done and I love the music as well as the script for this film making it a great success for the whole family.

Personally, I can't fault this film and I really enjoy the work that Disney have done with the Wreck-It Ralph movies. This is something that the whole family is able to enjoy and I would highly recommend to people who liked the first movie as well as those who are looking for a funny adventure movie. I will definitely be seeing Ralph Breaks The Internet again.

My Rating: 5/5

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
