Joey

I liked the film because it was really good as you can see from the 5 stars and it showed how much he loved Joey because he went to save him and wouldn’t just give up on him and forget him so he kept looking for him. he traveled to a different country to save him without anyone knowing even his mum

By Joshua

Joey was a real extravaganza for me and I really enjoyed it. It was quite a tension breaker as well because you always thought that Joey was going to get lost but then he doesn’t. So it’s one those films that repeat the same thing just in a different scene each time. Even though it did that I felt sorry for Billy’s mum because she was all alone and she didn’t know where Joey was. But in the end all ended well but they kept on feeding Joey and looking after him, so any other poachers couldn’t try and capture them or kill them.

By William

I love the film because it is an action packed adventure. I like the way that Billy just wants to find the joey’s parents. I was happy that the rich American girl helped Billy get the joey to his parents and Billy’s home. The film was mixed emotions some bits it was happy and some bits were sad because when the joey left Billy was happy –  it was with his parents, but sad he was gone!

By Imogen

The film Joey is about a boy who tries to save a kangaroo because his parents got captured and taken to Sydney. I enjoyed this film because it is filled with adventure and excitement and it shows how someone cares about animals and wants to help them.
The exciting bit was when Billy tries to save Joey from getting captured.
The film has a good mixture of sad and funny bits. I would therefore recommend this film and rate it 4/5.

Laurel and Hardy – March of the Wooden Soldiers

It was about two men who live in Toy Land in a shoe with loads of children and Little Bow Peep. There is a old Man who says to them if Little Bow Peep doesn’t marry him or pay some money he will kick them out the house so they can live on the street but Little Bow Peep already had someone who she wanted to marry. Then Miss Barnaby (the Mum of the house) asked Laurel and Hardy to go to work and bring back some money so she could pay the old man the money. They went to work and Santa was there, they showed him the presents and he said “You`ve done it all wrong. I asked for 123456 small toy soldiers not 123456 enormous, adult sized toy soldiers.”
Then the boss of Toy stood up and pointed at Laurel and Hardy “You two were the ones who sorted the letter from Santa you must have done something wrong. You’re fired.” He bellowed and that was the end of that.

Flash Gordon’s Trip To Mars

I liked it but it was a bit strange that Flash wore a t-shirt with a thunder bolt on; everyone who was not on his side would recognise him!The graphics weren’t that good but the story was alright. I liked it because it was based in space ( mind you technically they should be floating around in space suits.

By James

Flash Gordon wasn’t really my choice as it did chapter after chapter and it just ruined the whole atmosphere of it and making it to long. The action was good but then also a bit unrealistic and very quick making it hard to understand the actual hole plot. Overall I did like it but it was just too much old fashioned story lines which are hard to understand.

By William

I found this film a bit boring as it was in black and white and you couldn’t see any colour to express it. There was one exciting part where something scary happened to Flash Gordon. There is a definite cliffhanger. I would probably recommend it to Adults as it is better to concentrate on.

Penelope

Penelope was one of those modern fairy tail stories with made up stuff and curses which I like in older films but in newer films it makes it much more creepy. The best part of the film was near the end when everybody started realizing that there was more than met the eye to her, which is the whole moral of the story don’t judge a book by its cover. Her first lover was tricking her as he absolutely hated her and wanted revenge for when he had first seen her. Max as other people thought he was actually loved and longed to marry her playing songs on the piano stopping people spying on her and helping Penelope and in the end winning her back. So called ‘Max’ and Penelope then lived happily ever after as the two of them being teachers together.

Joey

Flash Gordon: Trip to Mars

Here are some reviews from our members.

James’ review of Joey

I liked Joey because I liked the fact that the boy went to Sidney to get Joey and got into lots of trouble, but I only gave it four stars because I disliked that it is a bit unrealistic.

Evan’s review of Joey

I really liked Joey because it shows Billy cares about animals and got into a lot of trouble to save Joey and it shows that animals should be treated the same way as humans should. I really liked the bit where the kangaroo hunters went into the little pond.

Despicable Me 2 – Ben’s review

It was really good and funny. I liked it because it was Gru trying to be a hero. So instead of him try to be a criminal he became a hero and he did cool stuff with his cute minions. The first Despicable Me was a success so I guess they decided to do another one. I recommend it to 7 – 10 year olds. I liked the part when they shoot all the bad minions to become good minions. I also like the fart gun. Altogether it is a funny, action film.

Bonnie Scotland – James’ review

I enjoyed the film because it was hilarious. My favourite part was when a man got a bee hive stuck on his head and started doing the wiggle. I gave it five stars because it just made me laugh

The Secret of Kells – William’s Review

I loved this film as it was also about helping each other and trying to listen to the right choice and also accepting challenges that lay ahead of people. It was mostly about the Viking sieges in the olden days and one little boy saved his whole village, but also he had to disobey his father and go outside the village and risk his life out there, while sandwich shaped Vikings tried to find and also burning other houses in the area of Kells

The Titfield Thunderbolt – William’s Review

I loved this film as it was about team work and I do a lot of it. But this is a different type of team work that is at a rate so high it could probably be used by any of them. The only thing that let the film down was that it was also a bit about competitive with two teams and I don’t like competition. Also it was quite funny in some places, but also I didn’t get in other places

The Titfield Thunderbolt – Konrad’s Review

It was a bit weird, I didn’t really work out what it was supposed to be, it’s not my type of movie, so I would definitely not recommend it, unless you like trains and people from the ’50s

The Titfield Thunderbolt – James’ Review

I really enjoyed the film because it was really funny. The best bit was when they made a hole in the water tank because all the people in the train had to fetch water from the nearest river. The first trick in the film was when the bad guys put a steam roller in the track so the steam train could not get through but the locomotive just pushed it off the track and it was brilliant.

The Titfield Thunderbolt – Amber’s review

I like the part when a man shot the water tank and all the passengers had to run up an enormous hill at the very top there was a house. The people in the house throw pots and pans out for them. When they had finished there was a big mess on the railway

The Titfield Thunderbolt: Ned’s Review

I loved it! The moral of the story is how you should never give up and this is what I enjoyed about it most. The film is quite old but you soon forget about that and get into the story and it makes you want to go on a steam train! My favorite bit was when the steam train crashed into the steam engine!
