    Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island

    ★★★

    Cute, and a nice setting, but with an unsatisfactory mystery.  That is unless you believe, as I do, that the whole thing was a chilli pepper-induced hallucination.

  • Ratatouille

    Ratatouille

    ★★★★

    One of Pixar’s best.  I love the story, and the main character, Remy – although Linguini is a total loser and I didn’t really enjoy watching him.  Usually makes me hungry.

    The Little Mermaid

    ★★★

    A very innocent film that I became surprisingly invested in. The first film of Disney's "Renaissance era", I saw a lot in common with the films that followed: Broadway-style introspective songs, rich detail, expressive animation, and hints of social commentary. Very likable.

    28 Up

    ★★★★

    The children of 7 Up are now fully fledged adults, and it's getting more interesting seeing how dramatically some have changed since 21, for better or worse. It seems clearer now that the series' premise - that our future personalities are determined from a young age - is not correct at all.
