Art (Age 8) - ★★★★★
"I watched end game it was sooo good It was like back to the future because there was a lot of time travel in it. I listen to a podcast called Brains On and it tells you about time travel and multiverse, so I recommend that as well.
Plot: after Thanos snaps his fingers and wipes out half the universe the avengers all have to work together to save all the people that have been snapped into nothing. I think it’s all about being respectful of the planet and the universe and helping people when they need it.
Characters: my favourite is Thor because he's really funny. I also really liked black panther because he is so cool.
I rate this movie 5 stars because it's funny and action packed.
Favourite quote: "And I am Iron Man""
Thor: Love and Thunder (2022) Daniel (Age 12) - ★★★
"I thought that it was cool seeing Natalie Portman with thor armor on but apart from that it was kind of boring with some ok action scenes and a mediocre story that wasn't very exciting to watch. My favourite character was korg.
Overall it was a mediocre movie that I would maybe recommend little kids but no-one else."
Daniel (Age 12) - ★★★★
"This was a great movie. It had a great cast and the fight at the end was amazing. Although I felt that it was a bit boring in the middle. My favourite character was Creed because I like Michael B Jordan. My favourite part of the film was the training montage.
Overall although a slow burner this was still a great boxing movie"
