Black Panther: A Film Review.

Note: Spoilers ahead. Also, if anything is wrong, worded weirdly or something please let me know! 


Black Panther hit screens in the UK this week. A highly anticipated film that has been a long time coming – a title black superhero, with an amazing cast, in his own film – graced its way onto the big screen and fans, myself included, were not disappointed. It was an inspiring, moving and captivating film and arguably one of the best films set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The Maze Runner: The Death Cure: A Film Review.


The final instalment of The Maze Runner trilogy hit cinemas recently and it was definitely worth the wait. As someone who read and adored the novels, I was, as much as it hurts to say, disappointed with The Scorch Trails. It wasn’t a bad film. It was action-packed and thrilling in its own way, apart from the novel, but I kept comparing it to the original storyline of the book and the changes that had been made didn’t sit well with me.

This was not the case with The Death Cure.

I found it to be action-packed, suspenseful, exciting, thrilling and emotional all rolled into one. By the middle of the film I was on the edge of my seat due to the tense atmosphere, my attention was wholly grabbed and I wanted to sit forwards to catch everything the film was showing me. It isn’t often that films get better as the sequels go on, but it seemed that The Maze Runner and The Death Cure were the stand out films in this trilogy, when usually, it is the first and maybe sometimes, the second.

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle: A Film Review.


Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle was an incredibly hilarious and enjoyable film.

The old classic was brought back in this light hearted, funny and smooth sequel that had audiences in fits of laughter the whole way through. It begins about a year after the previous film with a teenager named Alex, who receives the board game from his father. The game turns itself into a video game when it notices, magically, that Alex likes virtual games. As he takes the video game cartridge and starts to play, it sucks him in and is never seen again.

Justice League: A Film Review.


Justice League was a fun film. It wasn’t entirely bad and it wasn’t amazing. It opened up with footage of Superman talking to some children about what his favourite thing on Earth was. Then it paid homage to the ‘dead’ hero, the flowers and tributes that had been left for him and a shot of Lois grieving as well as Martha.

Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman: A Book Review.

Extra Thoughts On Film:

Now I have seen the film and clearly, I loved it. I think I covered everything in my book review and would pretty much say the same thing about the film.

The acting was great (Armie and Timothée were just exceptional) and it was a really beautiful, moving, captivating film, nature wise and the story line too. I’m happy that the ending seemed a little more hopeful for sequels!

I Prefer Books


Call Me By Your Name is a book I will treasure forever. It took me by the heart and kept me there until I finished it and was crying tears of sorrow and bittersweet love. The ending of this novel is both happy and sad and painful and I am a sucker for happy endings. I was surprised by the way it ended but it was beautifully written. André Aciman is a master of the written word; his prose moves and captivates you, pulling you along with Oliver and Elio skilfully until you never want to leave them.
