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 a huge fan of the MCU and being really excited for this movie since Infinity War came out in 2018 I couldn't wait to see this at the midnight release. I have waited a little while before uploading this review and that was so that when spoilers came up it was after the time in which Marvel said it was okay to do so.This is a film which I was so scared to watch but also so excited as well and really didn't want to see come to an end knowing this is the last for some of the characters within the Marvel Universe in which people are…

The Hidden People - Alison Littlewood (book review)

Book: The Hidden People
Author: Alison Littlewood
Genre: Horror, Fantasy, Historical
Published By: Jo Fletcher Books
Published Year: 2016

My Review:
Taking part in the OWL'S Readathon I needed a book which met the prompt of "Plant on the Cover" and after putting a poll on Twitter which had the choice of three different books this is the one that came out on top. As a result I ended up with this book and although seeming interested in it from the back of the book I found that this book did not grab me as much as I wish it did.

The book is about a man who's cousin dies so he goes to try and find out the truth about her death and upon getting to the village of Halfoak finds that the people are really into superstition and believed his cousin to be a fairy and not of this world. However, when his wife gets there he starts to think that maybe there is some truth in the tales the people were saying.

I found that this book was really slow for my personal taste and I couldn't…

Goosebumps: Don't Feed The Vampire - R.L. Stine (book review)

Book: Goosebumps: Please Don't Feed The Vampire
Author: R.L. Stine
Genre: Children's, Horror
Published By: Scholastic
Published Year: 1997

My Review:
Taking part in the OWL'S Readathon a subject I had was Care of Magical Creatures which had the prompt of "Land Animal on the Cover" because of this I thought it would be the perfect time to go back to a book I loved when I was younger called Goosebumps: Please Don't Feed The Vampire. Which I ended up still enjoying even though I am now an adult.

The book is one where the reader is able to make the decisions of the book and from the beginning there is two different routes in which the reader is able to take. The first is a story where the reader becomes a vampire and gets to choose how they deal with becoming one from trying to become human again to also staying a vampire. The other is where the dog becomes a vampire instead!

I personally think that this book is great for engaging readers with letting them choose what…
