  • Frozen 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 15 Dec, 2013

    It's hard to find a kid who didn't grow up watching Disney. Snow White, Pinocchio, The Little Mermaid, these are all films that have seeped into our collective consciousness, their songs ingrained in our minds, popping up at the randomest moments. Indeed a lot of my generation and the generations after owe a lot of their sense of magic and wonder to good old Walt.

    ★★★ Watched 21 Dec, 2011

    If you are anything like me, you've grown pretty tired of the SHrek franchise. What started off as a breath of fresh air has been rapidly beaten to death, and has every last fart joke squeezed out of it. And so I wasn't really sure whether I should expect much from this spin-off featuring Puss In Boots.

    Well being honest, while the movie doesn't live up to the first Shrek, it easily beats Shrek the Third. The main problem is…
