My Review:
Wanting a nice easy film to watch I thought I would watch Shrek which is a film in which I grew up with and I am able to quote pretty much word for word. I find that this film always makes me happy and it just relaxes me to watch which is something in which I was really looking for when I decided to put this on.

Personally I love this film, this humour in it is brilliant for both adults and children which does make this an easy film to watch with the whole family. Not only this but by having it with fairytales in which people grew up with as some of the characters and making the traditional style into their own it is easy for the audience to know what they are watching and not have to really concentrate on it. I also think it is really nice to have a movie where the characters are not all gorgeous and how that it is all about personality and can still find love. By having this I think it helps to make a change from the normal fairytales that are shown and feel a lot more people are able to relate with it. Having Shrek be easily quotable makes it easily memorable and a film in which everyone knows right away without needing to say what film you are talking about. The music is something else in which I really like and isn't the music in which you find in most fairytales but more modern and songs that are easy to sing along to. Though by not really having a musical element in which a lot of fairytales have it makes it a little different and a film in which I really enjoy.

There isn't anything in which I don't like about this film! I would highly recommend this to people who are wanting a family film to watch as well as an animation film. I would also recommend this film to those who are looking for a non traditional fairytale which will make you laugh. I am definitely going o be watching this again.

My Rating: 5/5

My Review:
Having spent a lot of my teenage years watching She's The Man I thought I would give it a watch as I hadn't seen it in a while and loved this film all over again. I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained.

Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the boy's team showed h…

My Review:
Having had my eye on this film since last month I finally gave in and decided to watch it. Leaving looking into this film and not seeing the trailer as I didn't want to ruin this for myself either I went in with an open mind and unsure what to expect. This film definitely exceeded my expectations and left me constantly wanting to know what was going to happen next.

I thought that Mune: Guardian of the Moon was great in that it had someone who didn't want the job of guardian get it and have to learn it all for…

Time Travel - Roxanne San Jose (book review)

Book: Time Travel
Author: Roxanne San Jose
Genre: Sci-fi
Published By: Avid Publishing LLC
Published Year: 2019

My Review:
Being given a free copy of Time Travel for an honest review I decided to give this a read. Having thought it sounded interesting I was looking forward to seeing how this book would go forward and although this book had some good ideas I don't feel like this book was fully finished.

Time Travel is about a girl who invents a time machine and when coming home from the future finds that her boyfriend has went to the past and gotten himself stuck there so tries to get him back while making friends along the way.

I liked that this book had that when the couple went to the future and came across a robot went on an adventure with it after knowing it had been abandoned for a long time. Not only this but by having the main girl character Angelie come back for the robot when her boyfriend goes missing and asks for his help was really sweet and really helped to connect those ch…
