Movie and Music Reviews

A kids review of “The Lego Movie” (Certificate U)

Posted on Updated on

On Friday night I went to see the Lego Movie and it was epic, I wanted to tell you about it!

The Lego Movie is certificated U. However the parents found it more amusing to the children. This was because some of the jokes went over our heads (as kids). The movie was about this baddy (called Lord Business – The voice was Will Ferrell). Lord Business has this big tube of glue and he wants to glue all of the Lego pieces together to cause trouble!  Lots of Lego characters – including Batman, Wyldstyle and other characters, including Emmet (The Good Guy – voice by Chris Pratt) gets them all to go on a mission to stop Lord Business.

I loved the movie because it was incredibly funny. Some of the characters are hilarious, including my favourite character who was, “God Cop Bad Cop”. The variety of Lego is brilliant, there is every Lego set you can think of (including The Simpsons!). It must have taken them a very long time to make the movie.

My mum says that grown-ups will love this movie because there is lots of dry wit and sarcasm. She says that it has lots of references to popular culture (whatever that means!). It has lots of retro characters if you like that kind of thing.

It is rated a U, but I would recommend older children and probably adults will enjoy it.

My dad already wants to go and watch it after hearing my mum rave about how good it was.

I give it 10 / 10 – brilliant.

I wish I’d have seen it in 3D because the graphics were excellent!

Here is the video trailer on YouTube.

Have you seen it yet and what did you think?

My review of Now 85! #musicreview

I like listening to now CD’s and this is my review of Now 85, which I got a couple of months ago on CD.

I think that CD1 is definitely better than CD2, I haven’t really listened to CD2 very much since I got the album. CD2 probably OK for someone but not for me.

My favourite songs are mostly on CD 1 of Now 85; 

22  by Taylor Swift
Hey Porsche by Nelly
Love Me Again by John Newman
I Love It (feat. Charli XCX)
Heart Attack by  Demi Lovato
True Love by Pink

It’s a really good mix of new songs! It is good value on Amazon as well currently 12.99.

Anyone, especially kids around my age will love this CD. Even my parents don’t mind listening to this CD in the car. I don’t like all of the songs on the album but it is very much like a Radio 1 or Capital Radio compilation / playlist, so you will know almost all of the songs if you listen to the charts.

 One of the best things about the ‘Now’ series, is that it only contains clean versions of the songs. That is great for kids – If they ever let naughty words on the CD I would have to stop buying them!

I can’t wait for Now 86 to come out (November 18, 2013), it is always the best way to get all the current songs all at once.
