My Review:
Having wanted to see Show Dogs in the cinema and not getting around to it I was glad to finally see it and found myself loving it a lot more than I expected and was thoroughly entertained all the way through this movie and laughed more than I had expected.

The film is about a Rottweiler named Max who when trying to save a panda which had been stolen away from it's mother ends up going undercover at a dog show and with the help of an old show dog learns about love while trying to save the panda before it is too late!

I personally really enjoyed this movie and the action within it was done really well which did make this more entertaining to watch. Not only this but I really like how they used real dogs for this movie and did not make it an animation due to the type of film in which it ended up to be. This film was really clever and showed how the owner and dog went from not liking and trusting each other to becoming friends as well as showing how not to judge someone by their cover and what they do as what they go through can be harder than someone expects and you don't fully understand someone till you have been through their experiences. Show Dogs also had a lot of good laughs for both adults and children and as a result is a brilliant family movie. With the film also making me go in awe with the baby panda and with how cute the dogs were I couldn't keep my eyes away from the screen and was really engaged all the way through this movie which is something I wasn't expecting but was a brilliant surprise.

I did think however that at times the CGI with the dogs talking could have been better and with some of the action sequences but considering that this film was done with real dogs and how it was done I was rather impressed with it.

I would highly recommend this movie to people who are looking for a family movie with dogs as the main characters and not an animation film. Not only this but I would recommend this film to those who are looking for an easy to follow storyline that will make you laugh. I will definitely be seeing this film again.

My Rating: 5/5

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…

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…
