My Review:
Having thought that this would be a nice little family film in order to watch when I got home from work in order to relax and seeing how this is on Netflix I decided to see if it was any good and relax to watch it. Being a fan of Jack Whitehall who voices in the main character as well I thought that this would be a film in which I would enjoy especially as I love dogs.

I did think that it was cute seeing Rex as a puppy compared to an adult as it gave the audience a better understanding of why the other corgi's thought he was annoying and didn't really like him that much as a result. By showing this it also shows how much the character of Rex was able to change throughout the film to the point he just wants to be with the girl he likes even if that leaves leaving the palace in which he was longing to come back to throughout the movie. I did think that the impression of Trump was pretty accurate as well and that did make me laugh as just seemed to capture his personality really well even if it was just for a couple of moments. I do think that it is nice that the dogs from the kennels that Rex ends up in help to save him at the end of the movie and that the queen decides to adopt them giving them a family and meaning that Rex gets to be with his friends and the dog in which he falls in love with.

However, there was a lot about this film in which I didn't like such as a lot of the humour within the film which actually just made me feel more uncomfortable more than anything and made me feel like they were trying to say the sexual comments were okay. Not only this but by showing how do fights were okay made me feel rather sick and feel like this is something in which made me want to turn the film off on more than one occasion even though you couldn't see anything in which was that violent. Having the royal family throughout was expected with this however I feel like it was horribly promoting the royal family and throwing it in the audience's faces rather than actually focusing on the movie and the dog in which ends up being abandoned and wanting to go home which did disappoint me a lot as I feel this made this movie get old really fast in my opinion. Not only this but basically showing how the kennel owner was neglecting the dogs by not noticing fights, putting unfriendly dogs together and seeming to really not care about them at all just frustrated me feel like this film was wanting frustrate people more than have a nice happy family movie.

Overall, I feel that this movie was disappointing and feel that it didn't have the effect in which I was hoping when I put this movie on. There is a lot in which I feel that this movie would have been able to do in order to make this film better and one that a family would love to watch. I would recommend this to people who love the royal family. Personally, this is a film in which I wouldn't watch again.

My Rating: 2/5

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

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUdy0Cu3f_o My Review: Looking through my movies and wanting something based in space to watch I decided to put on Supernova which is a film in which I couldn't remember at all. Not remembering it made me feel like this was a new movie to me and I did keep me watching all of the way through easily. I like that this film showed how the device in which they discover is able to make people stronger and able to make them younger as well. By also having this device able to reattach body parts it makes the audience worried about how they will get rid o

Sahara (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: Sahara Year: 2017 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Pierre Core Starring: Omar Sy, Louane Emera, Franck Gastambide About:  A young cobra and his scorpion best friend go on a journey across the Sahara desert to save a new-found love Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3IRkT9JsqM My Review: Having a movie day I came across Sahara when on Netflix and having no expectations about this film and also not knowing what it was about I thought that it would be the perfect film to blog about. I did think that this was a cute adventure movie but would be better suited to a younger audience than myself. I found that this film was really sweet that the snake wanted to go across the desert in order to find a snake in which he found he felt a connection with even though they were different kinds and also from different worlds. I also thought by having the girls brother being a drug addict and struggling with wanting more drugs and wanting to leave his sister w
