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 liked how they started with showing Mysterio as a good guy and how he was saving the world from being destroyed to only turn into the villain himself. I thought by showing how he liked Peter and that he just wanted to destroy everything in which Tony while also showing the watcher why he was doing this kinda made me feel bad on him. By doing this it led me to understanding his character and also the backstory of him better than I have previous villains in the MCU. Not only this but I really liked how it showed how he was making the projections happen and the team in which he had working alongside him especially as it showed how they had also been let down by Tony Stark and only wanted what they felt would be justice for themselves. By doing this I thought it showed how even though people loved Tony he had made a lot of enemies. Also by showing how Peter was starting to become like Tony was with making his suit as well as loving the same music while he worked it showed how he was making Tony proud and that he was deserving of getting control of Edith just as Tony thought that he was. Showing how Peter just wanted to be normal as well I thought was really sweet and sad as he felt he couldn't get that as he had so much to live up to and was still grieving as well which made it worse on him. By also showing how he just wanted to show the girl he liked that he was wanting to be with her and went to a lot of trouble in order to do so was also something in which I thought was good for the viewer to see and how he is still just a teenager who just happens to have a lot of responsibility as a result. Finally, I thought that the second end scene at the very end of the credits was a teaser for what was still to come with finding that Fury was actually on a spaceship and that aliens were really the ones pretending to be him. This left me wondering what was going to happen next and if Fury will ever come back to Earth.

However, I did find that the way in which they changed Mysterio into a bad guy wasn't done in a good way and did make me feel like they made two separate movies for this and decided last minute to put them together which did leave me feeling a little lost and like they were trying to rush the movie. As things were progressing in the second half I did find myself getting a little bored which I was disappointed at as I was happy to be finally seeing this film. I did feel I was rather confused by the ending as well which shows how Mysterio decides to out Peter Parker as Spider-Man as the whole time he was dying on the bridge it didn't look like he had the time to do the video as well as leaving me wondering how he uploaded it. Especially with the edit of showing Peter's face to the world. Finally, I thought that this film was brought out a little too soon after Endgame had been released which did make me feel like this was rather rushed and wish that they had left a little longer between the movies!

Overall, I did like the new Spider-Man movie however it didn't give me the complete feeling in which a MCU movie usually does. This did however, leave me wondering what was going to happen next. I would recommend this film to those who are fans of Spider-Man and the MCU as well as those who are looking for a good action film. I will be seeing this film again however waiting till it is on physical formats.

My Rating: 4/5

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
