Toy Story 4

When Toy Story 3 was announced, I thought “Oh no. They’re going to ruin the series! Why are they making another one?!” But I walked out of that film happily proven wrong. When they announced Toy Story 4, I thought “Okay, I know I was wrong last time… but this time they actually can’t! Toy Story 3 wrapped th...

Disney’s Aladdin (that live-action one you’ve all been fearing)

Hi, I’m Eloise and I’m a Disney-fanatic. I’ve always been a massive Disney fan and absolutely love the Disney Princess movies. My favourite though, is Beauty and The Beast  (probably because Belle loves reading books and so do I!). However, as it was my childhood favourite Disney Princess movie, I was very ...

Pokemon: Detective Pikachu

Pokemon figurines were my star chart rewards growing up. In primary school I had a friendship based purely around the fact that she had the Pokemon game on her PC – and I did not. I traded the cards, I had my figurines stolen by dick kids in my class, I had a talking Pikachu toy that was basically lik...

Mary Poppins Returns

As much as I call myself a Disney fan, Mary Poppins has been an anomaly for me. I won’t deny that the original was a marvel with its blend of live action and animation. But I can’t shake that drug-induced feeling the moment the penguins start dancing on screen. Unexplained sequences of events ar...

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part

Josh – The second installment of The LEGO Movie is a fast paced, laugh-out-loud thrill ride. Building on the success of the original, The Second Part replicates its former success and then some, packing this film chockablock full of lols, pop references, throwback lines and plenty of infectious music....

Wonder Park

A couple of awesome looking family flicks are popping up in theatres, just in time for the school holidays! One of these is Wonder Park, so I headed along to see if it was worth dragging the kids along for an outing. Wonder Park‘s main girl June is #DreamChild. She’s smart, joyful and loves to i...

Dumbo

Dumbo and Pinocchio have never been Disney classic favourites of mine. I haven’t been able to sit through them again in my adulthood (even though I’ve tried), they’re just too odd, uncomfortable and depressing. Disney’s Live action ‘take’ on the animated classic maintains...

Is “Ralph Breaks the Internet” DVD-worthy?

Disney’s Ralph Breaks the Internet was one of those rare cases where the sequel actually outdid the original. We thought so anyway, and Jaz testifies here with her review. But is it good enough to own your own copy? First, let me ask you a few questions: 1) Does the blue Magic Kingdom opener to every ...

The Nutcracker and the Family Movie Night

It was the first time in a long while that my aunt had sat down with her family for a movie night. The week had been a bit of a strenuous one, but it was nice to be able to look forward to something. I arrived with The Nutcracker and the Four Realms on bluray to the excited chatter of my cousins and the wel...

Aquaman

Aquaman was visually stunning. I was quite skeptical on how they were going to do the underwater scenes – but I was impressed. The costumes were vivid and the creatures of the deep were breathtaking. If you don’t know it yet, this movie is an origin story. I knew nothing about Aquaman except for what ...

Bumblebee: Did we need another Transformers movie? Yes we did.

I’m a Transformers pleb. But I really shouldn’t be. I mean, I grew up with the cartoons, played with the toys and have sat through all the recent movies. And yet, somehow I haven’t absorbed very much beyond the fact that there are Autobots and Decepticons and for some reason, they just don...

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse – Ashton’s Thoughts

Animation has often put adults off from even watching certain films and television shows. I remember the fact that my mum always refused to watch The Simpsons because it was “a cartoon” and the difficulty I have in trying to explain the exceptional Bojack Horseman to more discerning adults. Often when peopl...
