Daddy Day Care (film review)

Film: Daddy Day Care
Year: 2003
Genre: Comedy, Family
Directed By: Steve Carr
Starring: Eddie Murphy, Jeff Garlin, Anjelica Huston
About: Two men get laid off and have to become stay-at-home dads when they can't find jobs. This inspires them to open their own day-care center
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DdmbtyEtU8s

My Review:
Having noticed that Daddy Day Care had been put on Netflix and I had not seen it in years I could not resist but to watch it.

The film is about a man who after being fired from work alongside his friend thinks about how there is no affordable day care services so decides to make one with the help of his former colleague. However, when the most expensive day-care center comes after them will they be able to keep their business open?

I find this film really entertaining and shows the differences that children have and how life is not easy for the parents either. This does make a character for everyone and you can care about all of the characters easily throughout the movie as well. This is due to great acting from all of the cast and one that would make the whole family happy about what they are watching. As you see the children grow the watcher is also on that journey and feels proud of the different characters for what they have accomplished. I do feel that with the added competition trying to bring down the day-care center the dads have made makes you realise that not everything in life is easy and obstacles will get in the way however if you put your mind to it anything is possible, which is a great message for children.

I would recommend this movie to those who are looking for a family movie for everyone in the family including younger audiences. Not only this but for those who like Eddie Murphy as an actor this is not a movie you want to miss out on.

My Rating: 4/5

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask - Akira Himekawa (book review)

Majora's Mask is the second graphic novel from the Legend of Zelda series by Akira Himekawa. As a Zelda fan myself and liking the game that this is based off of I found this book really enjoyable. It changes parts of the game in order to get it faster paced for the book however this doesn't fault the book at all. Not only this but the graphics within this book are really good and made me love the book even more while also making me have the music from the game in my head.

The book also has a bonus story at the end which is about the making of the mask and how the mask came into being, I found this really fitting and something that is not only original but something that needed to be added to the book. As in the games it doesn't tell you how the mask was made or the story behind it this bonus story seemed like a more fulfilling piece of the story and tied up any loose ends such as how the mask came to be and why it is cursed.

As a Zelda fan I can't fault this book and …

My Review:
Being excited that there was a Spider-man movie coming out I needed to see it as soon as I could however this film left me feeling kinda disappointed at the end of the film which did upset me and I feel like they rushed over some parts and made other parts just a little too slow for me personally.

I did like that this film showed what happened to everyone since the Blip which happened in the Avengers movies and that even though some people aged the ones who came back were the same age and had to continue life as they had before. This helped to explain what happened with everyone after the events of Endgame and showed how life continued. I also…

Time Travel - Roxanne San Jose (book review)

Book: Time Travel
Author: Roxanne San Jose
Genre: Sci-fi
Published By: Avid Publishing LLC
Published Year: 2019

My Review:
Being given a free copy of Time Travel for an honest review I decided to give this a read. Having thought it sounded interesting I was looking forward to seeing how this book would go forward and although this book had some good ideas I don't feel like this book was fully finished.

Time Travel is about a girl who invents a time machine and when coming home from the future finds that her boyfriend has went to the past and gotten himself stuck there so tries to get him back while making friends along the way.

I liked that this book had that when the couple went to the future and came across a robot went on an adventure with it after knowing it had been abandoned for a long time. Not only this but by having the main girl character Angelie come back for the robot when her boyfriend goes missing and asks for his help was really sweet and really helped to connect those ch…
