Film: Daddy Day Care
Year: 2003
Genre: Comedy, Family
Directed By: Steve Carr

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

My Review:
Wanting a nice easy film to watch I thought I would watch Shrek which is a film in which I grew up with and I am able to quote pretty much word for word. I find that this film always makes me happy and it just relaxes me to watch which is something in which I was really looking for when I decided to put this on.

Personally I love this film, this humour in it is brilliant for both adults and children which does make this an easy film to watch with the whole family. Not only this but by having it with fairytales in which people grew up with as some of the characters and making the traditional style into their own it is e…

My Review:
Having been interested in this movie for a while and it really catching my eye lately especially with it being on Netflix I couldn't resist but to give this a watch. This is something in which I had better expectations for than it gave me and seemed a rather forgettable movie even though it wasn't a bad watch.

I liked that The Girl With All The Gifts started with showing how the children were taught and kept in separate rooms however made the audience wonder why they were kept that way when they seemed like normal children. Later discovering that they were zombies and that there was a zombie break all over the world through the cause…

About: Four best friends test their intelligence when an escape room they participate in takes a dark and twisted turn.
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AI2MbS-e_us

My Review:
Wanting something different to watch I thought I would check out Escape Room which is available to watch on Netflix.

This movie was good in that it did provide mystery and I did enjoy how the puzzles within the Escape Room were laid out and that every room had something in which they had to figure out and it was not just one room. I also enjoyed seeing how the people actually interacted with each other and why they seemed so hostile with certain characters. By also starting the movie with seeing someone having to choose a lock it came across very much like the movie "Saw" which does feel very much the same all the way through the movie. With also having the movi…
