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 to start watching Christmas movies with it being the middle of December I thought I would start with a movie in which was on Netflix which has been on my list recently called Elliot The Littlest Reindeer. With a cast of voice actors in which I already liked I hoped that this would be something I would enjoy and I am glad I was not mistaken as the movie ended up being rather cute and something I enjoyed more than I expected.

I thought by showing how Santa's reindeer was able to retire and have other reindeer take their place was rather a good concept especially as it showed how…

My Review:
From the moment that this was released onto Netflix I was excited about this movie especially as it seemed to be different from the usual Christmas movies in which have come out before. From my excitement I was scared that maybe I had hyped it up a little too much for myself and I wasn't going to enjoy it as much as I thought but I am so glad I was wrong. I loved this movie and it was different from other films I had seen and made me captivated throughout and make me feel like this is a film in which everyone needs to see and e…

The Monster Who Wasn't - T.C. Shelley (book review)

Book: The Monster Who Wasn't
Author: T.C. Shelley
Genre: Children's, Fantasy, Adventure
Published By: Bloomsbury
Published Year: 2019

My Review:
Having noticed this in a book shop I decided to go to my local library and reserve a copy in order to read it. Luckily it arrived rather quickly for me so I was able to start reading this a lot sooner than I had planned and as a result decided to also give it a review.

The book is about a child who is born in the underworld however is born with not only the last sigh from the man dying but also a babies laughter which makes the monster come across more human. Trying to stay hidden from the troll king who is trying to use the child he is trying to keep hidden but also finding out about family and maybe he just isn't a monster at all.

I thought that The Monster Who Wasn't was well written and made me want to know more about it right from the start, by having the gargoyles as creatures who accept the child for who he is and try to kee…
