I didn’t think I was going to like this. I was prepared to endure a movie that was going to shove it’s admittedly good moral down my throat. I wasn’t sure I would be able to stomach it.  But it seems I have a soft spot for musicals and a musical this turned out to be. To be honest, I was s...

Aladdin: Blu-Ray Release

Back in May this year, Eloise wrote a glowing two-thumbs-up review for Disney’s live-action version of Aladdin. If that didn’t convince you that you should add this to your collection of Blu-Rays, costumes and Funko Pops of Disney princesses, read on. While Aladdin hasn’t actually been my ...



Dora and the Lost City of Gold

I’m not quite sure what to give Dora and the Lost City of Gold. I feel very comfortable giving this a six, but almost everyone I’ve talked to found it very funny and very quotable. So six and a half it is. I do have to hand it to them, Lost City of Gold was pretty funny. Though I think a few of ...




Funny story: when I saw the poster for this film, I wasn’t too interested in seeing Abominable. Even knowing it was made by the same people who did the amazing How to Train Your Dragon I felt pretty meh about it. But then I saw the trailer. I was sold as soon as I saw those beautiful pork buns.  ...



Ride Like a Girl

Right from the beginning, Ride Like a Girl gives you the sense of a kind of rags-to-riches story – the kind that gets you ready to cheer for the underdog. Based on the true story of Michelle Payne, the biopic captures her life, her family and the journey she took to become the first female jockey to w...

The Angry Birds Movie 2

Yes, this is a thing. And it’s a second thing, on top of that. But heed my words, do not judge this film by its predecessor. It is by far a greater film. Though maybe still not a great film, but one that’s worth an outing if you have to take the kids out. Since becoming a hero after saving the b...

Musings on The Lion King

I don’t quite know how to score this one. The Lion King is either amazing or meh depending on what you want from it. If you just want a nostalgia trip and will appreciate a pretty faithful replication of the original, then it’s fricken amazing. If you, like me, want to see a new spin on somethin...

Spider-Man: Far From Home

Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man. Fight me. Or just watch Spider-Man: Far From Home. It’s honestly my favourite live-action Spider-Man film to date. A disclaimer: there are major spoilers for Avengers: Endgame in Spider-Man: Far From Home. So it’s better to go see it before this one. In fact, ...



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...
