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

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…

About: Four best friends test their intelligence when an escape room they participate in takes a dark and twisted turn.
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…
