The Lego Movie 2

The LEGO Movie 2As the name suggests, this was a follow up to the first Lego Movie and was just as enjoyable. This time Emit and friends have to face Aliens from another planet behind the stair gate. It is a great film for kids and one that adults can also enjoy. This film includes another very catchy song, although not quite as catchy as the song from the first movie ‘everything is awesome’, which is currently on replay in my head as I type!

I really love the film because it’s funny and really well animated. It made me laugh and I really enjoyed it!! In the lego movie 2 some aliens came and kept destroying the town. They would re-build, then an alien came and took all the heroes away and it was up to Emit to save them. 

I give this movie 5 out of 5 stars!

The Kid Who Would Be King

The Kid Who Would Be KingThis film is loosely based on the myth of Merlin and the knights of the round table as a follow up to the myth in modern times. The story centres around a twelve-year-old boy called Alex who stumbles across a sword in a stone and pulls it out. He then discovers that he has pulled out Excalibur and a whole adventure begins to unfold. The movie is rated PG and I would definitely be careful of letting very young children watching this movie as there were some quite scary scenes. 

It was a very enjoyable, interesting film which had some very funny moments in it. The underlying themes to the movie are based on believing in yourself, overcoming challenges and friendship. I would definitely recommend this movie to a family audience. 

 

Instant Family

Instant FamilyInstant family stars Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byme as Pete and Ellie, who decide to adopt a child. Instead of adopting one young child as first planned, they end up taking on three siblings, one of whom is a teenager which has hilarious consequences!  The film was absolutely brilliant, I laughed and I cried and I am awarding it my film of the month badge. It also shines an important light onto the fostering and adoption service and the need for more parents. Fantastic!!Popcorn, five stars

How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World.

How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden WorldThis is the third instalment of the DreamWorks movie franchise. The story is centred on a Viking boy called Hiccup and his dragon, toothless. Most humans are using dragons for fighting and labour, but Hiccup and his people have learned to respect and live with dragons and try to rescue other dragons which need help. In this film, the clan face their biggest threat yet and there is also the introduction of a love interest for toothless. 

This is the first of these films which I have seen, but I didn’t think that it was a problem as you could still follow the storyline without having seen the previous two films.  The film was good with some very cute scenes with the two dragons which are falling in love, which made me smile. There is also an underlying theme of learning to trust in yourself and that true love for someone can mean putting them above your own happiness and letting them go.

I don’t like it because it’s sad but it’s good but sad. It’s an animated film so it’s perfect for kids. It’s about some dragon hunters who hire a night furry killer and they try to destroy the dragons, so a young boy finds a special world for the dragons not to be harmed. 

It did make me cry because I don’t like any film with animals being damaged or captured. So I would give this movie 4 out of 5 stars.
