‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ DVD Review

We recently acquired this film on DVD so Libby is going to let us know her thoughts.

Heeellllooooooo guys,
Today we will be talking about the thrilling Marvel Avengers film: Age of Ultron. This film is absolutely amazing and features many of the characters at their best. The film has a brilliant story line and the actors are all great in their roles. Some of the characters in this film are Thor, captain America, Iron Man and the Hulk. It also features Black Widow and Hawkeye. Throughout the film there is action and thrills. I’d definitely recommend it to someone who hadn’t seen it.

Divergent Book Review

Divergent is a sci-fi, dystopian novel by Veronica Roth. It’s about a girl named  Triss who lives in a society which you must choose between 6 factions when you turn sixteen. These are known as Candor, Amity, Erudite, Abnegation and Dauntless, all of which have a specific strength. To help teens choose they must take a test. When
Tris’ test says she fits multiple factions she is worried as and this means she is a Divergent. The government considers these people  dangerous and when caught are killed. The story is about the thing Tris has to go through to avoid the government.
We would give this book 9/10 as it is a gripping, amazing piece of literature. We think this book is aimed mainly for 12 year old’s and upwards as it can be mildly distressing and violent.
There is also a film based on this book which we think is also amazing. The book and film is the first part of an epic trilogy and the film is part of four films as the last book was split into two. The second part of it is not yet out.

This piece is co-authored by Libby and Esther.

Inception: Film Review

We have recently received a film called Inception. I have watched it and I think it is exceptionally good.

The film stars many famous actors who most of you will recognize and the leading star is Leonardo DiCaprio who plays the character Cobb. The film is about a group of a people who know how to channel their mind to control other people’s dreams.

I recommend this film and I hope you enjoy it.
