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

Illuminae - Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff (book review)

Book: Illuminae
Author: Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Genre: Sci-fi, Young Adult, Romance
Published By: Knopf Books for Young Readers
Published Year: 2015

My Review:
Having heard a lot of positive things about this book I thought I would check it out and borrowed it from the library and found it was a really quick read and rather unique in the way that it was written.

Illuminae is about survivors from a war trying to get to safety however there is a plague in which is getting throughout the passengers and is driving them crazy. Not only this but it seems like the main computer system has also went insane and has stopped trying to protect the people like it is supposed to to.

I thought that this book was original in it's story as well as the way that it was written and some of the pages with the imagery was really well done and also made to be really pretty. This did keep me wanting to see how the pages would look and with it's unique style I thought it was well placed out. I also …

About: A young cobra and his scorpion best friend go on a journey across the Sahara desert to save a new-found love
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3IRkT9JsqM

My Review:
Having a movie day I came across Sahara when on Netflix and having no expectations about this film and also not knowing what it was about I thought that it would be the perfect film to blog about. I did think that this was a cute adventure movie but would be better suited to a younger audience than myself.

I found that this film was really sweet that the snake wanted to go across the desert in order to find a snake in which he found he felt a connection with even though they were different kinds and also from different worlds. I also thought by having the girls brother being a drug addict and struggling with wanting more drugs and wanting to leave his sister while also becoming fri…

My Review:
Having a movie day I couldn't decide what film to review however one film stood out to me more than the others have and that was Storks which made me laugh as well as kept me entertained all the way through the movie. As a result I thought that this would be the perfect film for me to review.

Personally I liked how this film showed how Storks carried babies like what children are told when they are little however decided to change to just delivering parcels due to one of them wanting to steal a baby and as a result has lived in their warehouse her whole life. I did think that the main boss wa…
