Film: The Boss Baby
Year: 2017
Genre: Animation, Comedy, Family

About: A suit-wearing, briefcase-carrying baby pairs up with his 7-year old brother to stop the dastardly plot of the CEO of Puppy Co.
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:
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…

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 grandparents also feelin…

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-q8C_c-nlM

My Review:
Having been an X-Men fan for most of my life I was excited to see that Dark Phoenix was coming out and decided to go to the cinema to see it on the first opportunity that I had. Although this is a decent watch this is nothing like what I expected it to be and it really let me down.

I thought that this movie was good in showing how Phoenix had dangerous powers and that Jean had no control over them which led to her hurting the ones that she loved. Realising this she did try to get help from anyone who she thought would be able to help her which I thought was nice to …
