My Review:
Having never heard of this movie before and knowing nothing about it before I watched it I thought that I would choose something in which looked rather cute to me and with being a lover of dogs this seemed to meet the criteria. This film was a good watch and one that I am glad that I decided to put on thanks to Netflix.

I really liked how this film at the beginning showed how humans were able to talk to dogs and how that evolution took place in order to understand how dogs were able to talk to humans and be able to understood. This really helped to set up the film and with it having to do with a dog singing competition helped to show how humans were able to enjoy them even though dogs were mostly in control. Another thing about this film in which I thought was a really great addition was that all of the dogs which were in the pound with Tiny after she got stolen were able to find homes and an owner which was perfect for them along their journey, I loved this as it made the dogs seem a lot more real as well as make the audience care a lot more for the dogs within the movie. Having the audience not really understand why Bark and Charlie had problems with each other until near the end was something I found helped to keep my attention throughout the movie and kept me wondering what really happened between them and why Bark was so determined to get rid of Charlie. The singing within this movie was really well done in my opinion and I thought was really sweet showing different styles of music throughout it with the different breeds of dog. Finally, I really liked the humour which was in Pup Star and it did make me smile and laugh on a couple of occasions which is something in which I was looking for when I started this movie.

Unfortunately, there was problems with this movie as well such as the CGI within the film which you could tell was not perfect throughout the movie and did make some of the scenes not as good as they could have been while also making the scene seem more amateur. Not only this but I found that at points my attention kept leaving the movie which is something which did disappoint me as it was a film in which was a good watch and something that was really easy viewing.

Overall, I did like this movie and glad I did give Pup Star a watch as it was enjoyable and something which was very easy watching which is something in which I was looking for. I would recommend this movie to families who are looking for a movie to watch together as well as those who are looking for an adventure movie which involves dogs. I would watch this film again but it isn't something in which I could watch all of the time.

My Rating: 3/5

Moon Over Soho - Ben Aaronovitch (book review) *contains spoilers*

Book: Moon Over Soho Author: Ben Aaronovitch Genre: Crime, Fantasy, Mystery Published By: Gollancz Published Year: 2011 My Review: Having my colleague let me borrow the second book in the Peter Grant series I was looking forward to see how they would progress from the first book and what supernatural beings that they would have to defeat now. Moon Over Soho  is about jazz musicians who end up dying not long after coming off of the stage and seeming healthy at the time. Feeling that something is wrong they call in Peter Grant to help with the investigation and discover that something supernatural was going on. While this is happening there is a new threat arriving called The Faceless One who is also a wizard but no-one remembers what they look like. Will Peter be able to stop the threats facing London? Personally, I liked this book a lot more than the first book as it was already established also there was more supernatural beings introduced and to worry about in London th

I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained. Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the b

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4F3Sn-Xzzo My Review: Wanting a style of film I don't usually watch but do enjoy I decided to watch the stalker movie that is My Teacher, My Obsession  which is based on an English teacher who starts at a new school. However, when one of the students gets obsessed with him she will do anything to be with him including secluding him from everyone else. I liked the foreshadowing at the beginning of the movie which matched up to the ending very well and shows how throughout the movie that this was coming up. I also liked how the film showed how the stude
