My Review:
Having loved the first movie when I was younger and impatiently waiting for a sequel I was so excited when the second The Incredibles movie came out after 14 years!

The film is about how a man is trying to bring back superhero's and make them legal again and has a plan for making it happen which is by using Elastagirl in order to save the lives of the public again and this time by showing the superhero's point of view by camera's in their suits. As this happens a new villain arrives called Screenslaver who would hypnotise people under their control!

I personally loved this movie so much and enjoyed how before the movie there was a short movie called Bao which was about a dumpling which was growing up and how it effected the mum which I found really touching however did get a little confused by the ending of it. Overall a great short film however and one I was glad that they added to the movie.

I also loved how the start of The Incredibles 2 went perfectly with the ending of the first movie linking it together perfectly and not leaving the audience who had seen the first one wondering what had happened with the Underminer. I also really liked how unlike the first movie this one based itself on Elatagirl being the hero and saving everyone and hoping to get superhero's legal again while Bob stayed at home to look after the children, showing that woman do not have to be the only one who stays at home and looks after the children but men can as well. As the audience sees JackJack's powers come into light again and this time with the family knowing about them it was humorous to see all of his powers and how Bob dealt with them. With also the teenage angst that you have with Violet after Bob by accident erased her from her crushes mind it was a great film which all ages could relate to and have a laugh at making it a perfect family movie. The action throughout the movie as well was brilliantly done and with the new superhero's that the audience gets introduced to was a good way of showing how newer hero's are scared to come out of hiding but with the right leader they would stand up and try to save the world and change the laws against them. Also with hidden messages in it as well such as that we focus on the screen so much in modern life that we are getting taken over by what the media are telling us and that people need to wake up to what is happening around them and that even though the government is taking over all the laws and making it harder for people to live there is still a way to fight for you rights as a person and through peaceful protest and without violence, I thought this was a great message that the world currently needs in 2018.

I personally couldn't fault this movie except that there wasn't really much to do with the Underminer and I hope that they do make a third movie about him as he doesn't get captured in this movie and is still a threat.

I would highly recommend this movie to everybody as it has the right amount of humor which will make you laugh out loud, action to match the first movie and a message which has a lot of meaning in the current times. I can't wait to see this movie again already!

My Rating:  5/5

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-X5WnMzOvA

My Review:
Having had my eye on this film for a while I was la when Netflix brought it on the service and I could finally see this especially with it having Dwayne Johnson and Vince Vaughn in it. Being also asked to review this film I thought it would be a good opportunity to do both of these at the same time. This is a film I never noticed was a biography movie before seeing it and I thought was good for showing more about the wrestler Paige.

I enjoyed how this film showed how a girl from England first got into wrestling and how it was her dream to be in the WWE and got given the opportunity. By also showing how she goes throu…

About: The dramatic story of the cutthroat race between electricity titans Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse to determine whose electrical system would power the modern world
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kue18AxK1tU

My Review:
Having wanted to see The Current War since it was in the cinema after seeing how it had an incredible cast of actors in which I already like I knew I had to see it once it came onto DVD. Not only this but not knowing much about the electricity feud this was a subject in which I found myself really interested in which made me enjoy this film a lot more than I had expected.

I thought that it was good how it showed the rivalry between both Edison and Westinghouse and how Edison was willing to tarnish his name in order to get ahead and even go against his own beliefs in order to try and win the…

About: Fred Claus, Santa's bitter older brother, is forced to move to the North Pole to help Santa and the elves prepare for Christmas in exchange for cash.
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VzXjtxZaGS8

My Review:
Over the Christmas period I decided to watch some films that I hadn't previously seen before and one of those being Fred Claus I thought that this was different to other Christmas movies as it focus' on Santa's brother rather than on Santa himself but also on how to keep Christmas alive and not have it closed down. By having Vince Vaughn as the main character in this I had good expectations for this movie as I generally enjoy everything in which I have seen him in.

I thought that Fred Claus was good in how it showed how Nicholas became a saint and how he is able to be Santa with the family not being able to age as a resul…
