Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k397HRbTtWI

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

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…
