5.0 out of 5 stars Panthea - A Brave New World., 2 Oct. 2013
This is the debut novel by exciting new author Chris Dows and if this is anything to go by I can't wait for the next instalment!
Panthea, the Darkness and the Light starts by introducing us to a mystical world full of Greek Gods and wondrous creatures. The opening chapter beautifully describes the fantastic kingdom in which these beings live and sets the scene for the rivalry between them. As well as their own personal war they also wage a war against humans. The author puts a picture in your mind and describes the astonishingly named creatures as if they were real. I particularly liked the swords and weapons and the fight scenes were particularly vivid.
The action then switches to Earth and we are introduced to our heroine, 12 year old Nanami who is a typical girl on the brink of being a teenager and whose mother, who collects and restores mysterious artefacts, appears to have little time for her. Nanami is forced to move away from Japan where she lives and go back to Nottingham in England, where they meet a strange man named Mr Tsume. It's difficult to describe what happens next without spoiling the plot but eventually both these world collide and Nanami goes on an unbelievable and dangerous adventure. Amazing transformations, exciting battle scenes, and many surprises along the way make it difficult to put down.
I really loved this book and this wonderful world that the author has brought vividly to life. The many different creatures, the locations and the nonstop action make this one of my favourite novels and I would love to see this on the big screen. I would recommend this to fantasy readers of all ages.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fight, dream, hope, love., 23 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Les Misérables [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
Les Miserables - Fight, Dream, Hope, Love.

Les Miserables is a film set in 19th century France and tells the story of a remarkable man called Jean Valjean. (Hugh Jackman) who is a prisoner and gets released and breaks parole to start a new life for himself, while being chased by brutal police officer, Inspector Javert (Russell Crowe).

On his journey he meets struggling mother Fantine (Anne Hathaway) who after getting fired from her job ends up being a prostitute, and sells her hair and a tooth in a desperate attempt to earn more money. After she realises how horrible her life is she sings that famous song I dreamed a dream which is performed beautifully.
Because Fantine can't earn enough money to keep her daughter safe, Jean Valjean decides to take Cossette as one of his own.

Nine years later when Cossette (Amanda Seyfried) is older, she meets a young man called Marius (Eddie Redmayne) who is part of a secret society called the French Revolution and very soon is about to fight the French army. When Jean Valjean finds out that Cossette is in love with Marius he has to face the fact and accept Marius and stop him from fighting the French army and getting himself killed.

I specifically think that the outstanding performances in the film are Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe and mostly Eddie Redmayne. The reason that these actors did so well was because of their natural voices and the fact that they sang live which is pretty extraordinary. I also think that the direction in this was also brilliant. I think this film is a triumph and I'm sure that it will win many awards and I for one hope it does.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Impossible - inspiring and unexpected, 13 Jan. 2013
This review is from: The Impossible [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
The Impossible is a film about a family who take a holiday to Thailand at Christmas. Little did they know that one of the world's biggest tsunamis' was about to hit them. When it does hit them the whole family is split apart by this gigantic wave.

The film stars Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor, who play their roles beautifully as the mother (Maria Bennett) and father (Henry Bennett) to three children. This film also stars newcomer Tom Holland who plays the oldest son, (Lucas Bennett) who has to take care of his mum because of her brutal injures.
The scene where the tsunami hits is brilliantly shot, yet so harrowing. The heartbreaking scene where Maria and Lucas try to reach out to each other while being swept away crashing into trees, cars and other dangerous objects, is shattering. It was also devastating when Maria's injuries are revealed and Lucas sees his mother as he has never seen her before.

The special effects in this film are extraordinary, and I wasn't expecting the effect that it would have on me, and I would defy anyone who isn't moved by this astonishing piece of film making.

This film is inspiring and unexpected; I recommend this film to anyone. Even though there is despair, there is still hope.
