My Review:
Having missed seeing this in the cinema, I had to watch this when it got released onto physical formats. Adoring the first film and having watched it a few days prior I was excited to see what happens in the second movie and if it would live up to first movie.

I love that Ralph Breaks The Internet continues on from the first movie really well and tells us that it has been six years that the main characters have been friends for and how Vanellope is starting to get bored of her game and wants more excitement in her life. By also showing how Wi-fi became a part of the arcade and how scared the games are of it as it has the chance to close down the games as online games are becoming popular with a younger crowd. I also thought by having Vanellope get bored of her game and when going into the internet finding a game in which excited her and that she wanted to be a part of it was good in showing how people change and sometimes people need to find something new and break their normal routine so that they no longer feel stuck and sad by doing the same thing all of the time. Not only this but by showing how Ralph didn't want Vanellope to change and how it took him a while and to see just how jealous and bad a friend he was being to see that he was no being the friend in which he should be and was instead holding her back from who she really wanted to be. Showing that sometimes letting someone go is actually the best thing to do for your friends and that not seeing them all of the time isn't a bad thing and that people are able to communicate in other ways such as through a video call and can enjoy their time together more after they are reunited. By having the wheel of Vanellope's game break and them try to make the money any way that they could through the internet was something I thought was a cool way of introducing the internet the characters and how there are also virus's which are able to break games but are the dark web, having the different sides of the internet was something I thought was really cool and really made the internet come across as more real. Not only this but I thought it was enjoyable seeing how streaming sites worked within that world where pop ups are just characters with jobs and how they get money from the people who go to the site and give love on others while also able to drag people to their videos. Showing how the people in real life also liked the videos of Ralph and made them remember their childhood as well as only last a couple of moments I thought seemed real as it shows how people are able to get noticed however people will forget very shortly afterwards and you will become yesterdays news. Not only this but by showing how negative the internet can be was something I was so glad they showed within this movie from showing how happy Ralph was about his videos and the people watching them to seeing negative comments which made him feel not good enough and that people didn't actually like him when there was actually people who loved him as well. Showing how people need to stop focusing on what people they don't know and online say about them and just do what they feel makes them happy and focus on the people around them. Finally, I loved how Ralph made videos for viral videos and showed what they were as well as having the final end scene being a Rick Role which was a huge viral success in the past and how he made it his own. The animation within Ralph Breaks The Internet is brilliantly done and I love the music as well as the script for this film making it a great success for the whole family.

Personally, I can't fault this film and I really enjoy the work that Disney have done with the Wreck-It Ralph movies. This is something that the whole family is able to enjoy and I would highly recommend to people who liked the first movie as well as those who are looking for a funny adventure movie. I will definitely be seeing Ralph Breaks The Internet again.

My Rating: 5/5

My Review:
Having spent a lot of my teenage years watching She's The Man I thought I would give it a watch as I hadn't seen it in a while and loved this film all over again. 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 boy's team showed h…

My Review:
Having had my eye on this film since last month I finally gave in and decided to watch it. Leaving looking into this film and not seeing the trailer as I didn't want to ruin this for myself either I went in with an open mind and unsure what to expect. This film definitely exceeded my expectations and left me constantly wanting to know what was going to happen next.

I thought that Mune: Guardian of the Moon was great in that it had someone who didn't want the job of guardian get it and have to learn it all for…

Starring: Claire Danes, Jim Parsons, Octavia Spencer
About: Loving parents of a four-year-old must come to terms with their child being transgender.
Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yR-5Rme7sQ8

My Review:
With it being Pride month and having this movie on my To Watch list on Netflix I thought that this would be the perfect time to give this movie a watch. I wasn't sure what to expect with this movie and although it surprised me and I liked it more than I expected there is more in which I wish that they did with this film.

I personally liked how A Kid Like Jake focused on the parents and how they both came to terms with how their son liked to dress as a girl and how it could be possibly more than that and that he could possibly be transgender. I liked this as it showed how the father was more accepting even though he didn't feel great about it and how the mother was in denial and would try to force…
