Skellig

Who should watch this film? The film rating is a PG (Parental Guidance) but I would rate it for 9-14yrs, as it has mild language, violence and some scary scenes.

Rating: I would rate this film a 4/5.

Main Characters: Michael, Mina and Skellig.

Actors: Alexander Armstrong, Bill Milner, Kelly MacDonald, Tim Roth, Eros Vlahos, John Simm, Edna Dore, Navin Chowdhry, Tameka Empson and Keiron Self.

Plot: The film Skellig is about a young boy called Michael whose mum is pregnant, but when the baby is born she is very ill. While Michael finds something strange in his garage, he finds a friend called Mina and they discover the truth  about this angel like, human like and bird like ‘being’. While dad is working on the house, mum is always at hospital and Michael continues going to school, but he is worrying about the baby and is wondering about the strange ‘being’ in the shed. Will the baby stay alive?

Recommended: I would strongly recommend the film as it is a great film, but I advise you read the book before because it won’t be as exciting if you don’t read the book. If I had to decide which was best – film or book – it would be hard. I would say it was a tie because the book has things that I love that the movie hasn’t, but the movie has some amazing bits that the book doesn’t have but, if I had to decide I would probably choose the movie because I like the storyline a bit better than the book but the book is and the movie is a must read and watch.

All About My Summer by Beau

This is my first blog post, and I will be explaining how my summer was. In the beginning I went of school, half a week early and went to the airport we were going to Majorca, our first flight was delayed so we arrived at our hotel at 3:00 AM in the morning. Then we met up with my Grandma and my Grandma’s daughter who is 17. Our hotel was right next to a indoor and outdoor pool, there was also a very nice beach that was very hot and the sea next to it was so warm! The next day we met up with my Aunt and Uncle. After that we went to my Stepdads Auntie’s house for 1 day. After that we went to my Stepdad’s friends house and went to a cricket match we stayed for 2 days(1 night). Then we went to my Stepdads mom’s house and stayed for 2 night and we got to fly a drone. And then we went back to the airport we didnt have to wait that time phew, and went back to Cornwall to our dad’s.Image result for Majorca palma hotels
