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 was mean and that from the beginning I didn't trust him especially when he wanted to get rid of her on her birthday even though it was the only home she had ever known. By also showing how he only seemed to care about money did kind of humour me as they are birds and don't need money in order to survive. Not only this but by having the boss also mean to the other birds in the factory it showed how he was not to be trusted! I thought that this created a good villain from the early stages of the movie which progresses well throughout. I did think by showing how the baby cuteness effected everyone from the storks, the humans and even a pack of wolves was good in giving a better understanding of how one of the storks could have chosen to try and steal a baby instead of giving it to the parents. I also thought that the wolves brought comedy to the movie which just enhanced the experience for me and I loved how they would create into different things in which they needed to be in order to progress which I thought was really clever. Having the ending show how the stork that stole her actually wanted to try and get her back home and tried to find all the pieces to get her there was really sweet and did make me feel for them both as it showed how he knew he had done wrong and tried to fix it the only way in which he knew how. Having her go home at the end of the movie and showing how the humans weren't her only family and that she believed the Storks to be her family was really sweet and showed how she appreciated where she came from and it would always be a part of her. Finally, I loved how the child in which asked for the baby to be brought got to spend time with his parents as a result as that is why he wanted a brother so that he would be able to have someone to play with and care for as he got no time with his parents as they were always working. As they realised that he needed time with them as well and managed to give him time with them in which they all enjoyed I thought that it was sweet and left me happy that he now had a proper family.

There isn't really anything in this film in which I didn't like and would say bothered me about it. I would definitely recommend this film to those who are looking for a film for the whole family and one that will make you laugh as well really care for the character's in which are created. I would definitely see this again!

My Rating: 4/5

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nt9L1jCKGnE

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…

Mute (film review)

Film: Mute
Year: 2018
Genre: Mystery, Sci-fi, Thriller
Starring: Alexander Skarsgard, Paul Rudd, Justin Theroux
About: A mute bartender goes up against his city's gangsters in an effort to find out what happened to his missing partner.

My Review: 
Seeing this come up on my recommended for me on Netflix I decided to see if this would be any good. Liking Alexander Skarsgard as an actor, seeing him in a different role than I usually see him in really intrigued me.

The film is about a man called Leo who is a mute and when his girlfriend goes missing tries to find her any way that he can. At the same time the audience is seeing a man who seems to be involved in crime and who is trying to leave the country to go back to America.

I found that this film had a slower plot than I would have personally liked and it could have been more in depth with the movie however it was a good watch that I would see again. I also think that this highlights Alexander Skarsgard's acting ability as he is a m…

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask - Akira Himekawa (book review)

Majora's Mask is the second graphic novel from the Legend of Zelda series by Akira Himekawa. As a Zelda fan myself and liking the game that this is based off of I found this book really enjoyable. It changes parts of the game in order to get it faster paced for the book however this doesn't fault the book at all. Not only this but the graphics within this book are really good and made me love the book even more while also making me have the music from the game in my head.

The book also has a bonus story at the end which is about the making of the mask and how the mask came into being, I found this really fitting and something that is not only original but something that needed to be added to the book. As in the games it doesn't tell you how the mask was made or the story behind it this bonus story seemed like a more fulfilling piece of the story and tied up any loose ends such as how the mask came to be and why it is cursed.

As a Zelda fan I can't fault this book and …
