My Review:
Having wanted to see this since it was first released in the cinema I couldn't help but to buy the movie on dvd in order to watch it for the first time.

The movie is about a baby who is working for Babycorp and is seeing a decline in people wanting babies due to puppies taking over and so comes to try and help get rid of the competition. However, when Puppy Co. says they are bringing out a new designer puppy it is up to both the baby and his older brother to stop them.

I found this movie very enjoyable to watch and it made me laugh at times which was great. There was some adult jokes that the children would not understand which I did like as it meant adults would be entertained by this as much as the children who are watching The Boss Baby. I also enjoyed that the enemy was puppies, as a dog lover this made me want to watch it so much more to see how they would bring down the puppies which were taking over. There was one child in particular I did find myself loving which was a minor character and that was Jimbo who I found was very much like me as a person so I couldn't stop being entertained by his character and how excited he got. I did think that the use of using darker animation to show what the brother was thinking about was a great touch as well as it showed off how different the normality was from his imagination and didn't leave the watcher wondering what was happening.

I would recommend families to watch this especially as it is a film for everyone to enjoy and have a good laugh at. I can't wait to watch this one again and notice parts I looked over the first time I was watching.

My Rating: 4/5

Sahara (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: Sahara Year: 2017 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Pierre Core Starring: Omar Sy, Louane Emera, Franck Gastambide About:  A young cobra and his scorpion best friend go on a journey across the Sahara desert to save a new-found love Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3IRkT9JsqM My Review: Having a movie day I came across Sahara when on Netflix and having no expectations about this film and also not knowing what it was about I thought that it would be the perfect film to blog about. I did think that this was a cute adventure movie but would be better suited to a younger audience than myself. I found that this film was really sweet that the snake wanted to go across the desert in order to find a snake in which he found he felt a connection with even though they were different kinds and also from different worlds. I also thought by having the girls brother being a drug addict and struggling with wanting more drugs and wanting to leave his sister w

A Kid Like Jake (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: A Kid Like Jake Year: 2018 Genre: Drama, Family Directed By: Silas Howard Starring: Claire Danes, Jim Parsons, Octavia Spencer About:  Loving parents of a four-year-old must come to terms with their child being transgender. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yR-5Rme7sQ8 My Review: With it being Pride month and having this movie on my To Watch list on Netflix I thought that this would be the perfect time to give this movie a watch. I wasn't sure what to expect with this movie and although it surprised me and I liked it more than I expected there is more in which I wish that they did with this film. I personally liked how A Kid Like Jake focused on the parents and how they both came to terms with how their son liked to dress as a girl and how it could be possibly more than that and that he could possibly be transgender. I liked this as it showed how the father was more accepting even though he didn't feel great about it and how the mother was in denial
