My Review:
Having loved this movie since I first ever saw it when it was released back in 2006 I was really craving to watch it as I hadn't in a while and found myself loving it as much as I had done before.

The film is about a raccoon named RJ who tries to steal food from a bear who is hibernating and is given a week to get all of the food back. However, when he comes across a group of scavenger animals he uses them to help get the food back for the bear however when animal control gets involved will the animals be safe or will they be captured and will RJ be able to get the money for the bear?

I love this film and find it really funny, I like how there is a character for everyone within this film through the animals from the really safe reptile who wants to just trust his gut when things are feeling wrong, to Hammy the squirrel who is really hyper and loud. I think that this film shows how sometimes people can be using you however if you give them a chance to change then there is a chance that they will change their ways. I thought that the comedy within this film was really good and more suited to children over adults but that only makes me appreciate this movie as a children's more than anything else. With the soundtrack of this film also a good edition and helps to create the atmosphere perfectly it was well done.

I would recommend this movie to children and those who like animation movies with animals, I will definitely be watching this movie again!

My Rating: 5/5

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

Brave (film review)

Film: Brave Year: 2012 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Mark Andrews, Brenda Chapman Starring: Kelly Macdonald, Billy Connolly, Emma Thompson About:  Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CKcqIahedc My Review: Having not seen Brave in years I thought it would be a perfect movie to watch which would make me feel proud as a Scottish person while watching an animation movie. I really like that this movie has clans which is something that is a huge part of Scotland's past and by having really common Scottish names it gave it more of a Scottish feel to the movie. Having a lead character in which doesn't want to be married off and wants to be her own person I think is a really key thing for people to watch and for children to know that it is okay t
