Rocket From Guardians of the Galaxy

Published by:


This week I went and saw Guardians of the Galaxy in 3D at the Pacific Science Centre.
The movie is about a team of people and aliens who are trying to save the galaxy from being destroyed by a very powerful orb.
The team includes Star Lord (who is a human and a thief), Gamora (an assassin) , Groot and Rocket (a pair of bounty hunters) and Drax (a prisoner).
My favourite character was Rocket, a racoon alien who has been created after he was experimented on, so he acts like a human.
He is very funny and he has a machine gun and he is the only one in the universe who can understand Groot (who only speaks one sentence “I am Groot”). He has escaped twenty three jails and one with his team. He is the wildest guy in the team, which is why I think he’s the best character in the movie.

I would recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys fun and Marvel superhero movies. I give this movie a rating of five out of five stars and I would recommend watching it in 3D.

Ron Weasley

Published by:


I’m writing about Ron from Harry Potter because he is funny in this series. I like Ron in the 5th book, Order of Phoenix, when he’s bringing the 1st years to their tower and he says “hey you lot, midgets.”. Most of the time he whines about people like Snape, his potion teacher. He also has a rat called Scabbers, but his rat is a Death Eater and also Voldemort’s servant.

Harry Potter and The Philosophers Stone & Quidditch

Published by:

philosophers stone quidditch

I have been reading the Harry Potter series over the summer. I started the Philosophers Stone a few weeks before the end of school in June and I just finished The Deathly Hallows this week.
The Harry Potter series are the best books that I have ever read and I’m going to be blogging about some of my favourite things about the books over the summer. This post is dedicated to Quidditch and the first book in the Harry Potter series, The Philosophers Stone.

Harry Potter gets chosen as the seeker in his first year at Hogwarts. All of his team have been there longer than he has, and his team mates are Wood, Katie, Angelina, Fred, George and Alicia.
The first game that Harry plays as a seeker is against Slytherin and as Ron and Hermione watch the game, they realise that the game has been enchanted and someone is trying to hurt Harry. So Harry has to play a very tough game while Hermione thinks that Professor Snape has cursed the game and sets his cloak on fire.
Harry doesn’t know about the game being cursed but he is the best player in the game and he winds up catching the snitch (in his mouth!).
I really liked this first book because it made me want to read the second one. Quidditch is one of my favourite things about the Harry Potter books and Harry Potter becomes a better player every year.

The Lego Movie

Published by:


The Lego Movie is one of my favourite movies. I saw it at the cinema when it first came out and we also have it on iTunes so I usually watch it around twice a week.
My favourite thing about the movie is that it’s funny and it also gives me ideas about creating new things with Lego. My favourite character in the movie is Vitruvius because he’s funny and he makes up funny prophesies.

The Lego movie is about Lego people called master builders who are trying to find the piece of resistance and using it to stop the most powerful weapon in the universe…THE KRAGGLE!
The person that finds the piece is called the special.The special is called Emmet which most people say he is just an ordinary construction worker but Emmet learns that he is special…but I’m not going to ruin it for you because you need to watch it!
The Lego movie is also about using your imagination and how sometimes you need to not follow the instructions and create more awesome and interesting things. Sometimes you can make more interesting things when you try to do something different to other people.

X-Men: Days of Future Past

Published by:



In X-Men: Days of Future Past,  Wolverine is on a mission to travel back in time and stop Mystique from killing Dr Trask. Dr Trask is a scientist whose work is used to create unstoppable killing robots called Sentinels. The Sentinels threaten humans and mutants in the future.
Before Wolverine can complete his mission, he has to find his friends from the future, Professor X, Magneto, Beast and Quicksilver to help him with his mission.

I thought this movie was fantastic. My favourite scene was one that involved Quicksilver using his special mutant powers to protect his friends. I would recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys superhero and action movies.
I give this movie five out of five stars.
