My Review:
Going back to the first movie I ever fell in love with however haven't seen in years I decided to put on A Bugs Life which came out in 1998 when I was only 2/3 years old! As a favourite of mine when I was younger I was scared to watch this again in-case it didn't live up to what I had remembered and loved.

A Bugs Life is about an ant called Flik who after getting rid of all the food the ants collected for the grasshoppers goes out to try and find some warriors to try and help defeat them. However, when he recruits circus bugs he needs to come up with a new idea to stand up to the grasshoppers.

This film is honestly amazing to myself, I am not sure wither it was because it was a childhood favourite but I couldn't stop smiling watching this and found myself feeling a lot younger as well. This film also makes me laugh with the humour in which has always made me laugh. One of my favourite things about this movie is that at the end of the movie they have a blooper reel even though it is an animation movie. This movie also makes it so that bugs are likable which is something I also like as it is not normally a living creature in which people respect showing that we should accept bugs and different people how we would expect to be treated. Not only this but the film shows that even though things might not always go as you planned and things can go badly for you if you keep trying then anything is possible! Which is a great message for children.

I highly recommend this film to children and those who want to re-watch a film from their childhood as this film is just as good as I remember.

My Rating: 5/5

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8lDreq9le4 My Review: Wanting to watch a rom-com and having this on my Watch List on Netflix I couldn't resist but give this film a chance and see what I thought. Having liked Emma Roberts in everything I had seen her in previously as well I was excited to see if this was another film of hers in which I would enjoy. This film surprised me however I ended up enjoying this more than I expected. I liked that this film had a Romeo and Juliet vibe with the families not liking each other however the children both being in love with each other and feeling that their families were the reason in which they couldn't be together. I also thought it was clever having the gr

Adoring the first film and having watched it a few days prior I was excited to see what happens in the second movie and if it would live up to first movie. I love that  Ralph Breaks The Internet continues on from the first movie really well and tells us that it has been six years that the main characters have been friends for and how Vanellope is starting to get bored of her game and wants more excitement in her life. By also showing how Wi-fi became a part of the a
