5. THE SUPER MARIO BROS. MOVIE

Nina (Age 10) - ★★★★★

"This movie was one of the best movies I have seen. Of course nothing could beat Matilda the musical but I reckon super Mario bros was second to Matilda the musical. This movie is about Mario and his brother Luigi who have made an advert because they have now decided to save Brooklyn by plumbing. But one day they get transported through a pipe and Luigi ends up in Bowsers world, in which he gets attacked, and Mario ends up in Toadstool world, in which he meets Toad the explorer. Toad gets him to Princess Peach who teaches Mario to survive and fight using power ups. Then they all go to the Donkey Kong kingdom and get the monkeys to help fight Bowser. But they lose the army. Then Bowser reveals he has a secret desire to marry Peach and Peach agrees. She only agrees because Bowser promises not to hurt the Toads. Then some fighting happens at the wedding and everything goes a bit bonkers. All in all this is a great and adventure filled movie which I would recommend to people who like Mario themed stuff. This is a five star review movie and I love it."

 

6. HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN - Streaming Netflix

Stewart - ★★★★★

'This is the Harry Potter film that really stands alone in terms of how it looks and it's style but it doesn't jar with the franchise in anyway. It still stays loyal to the source whilst maintaining it's own unique offbeat quality. This is thanks to the excellent work of director Alfonso Cuaron who really leaves his stamp on the film.

Meanwhile the three lead actors have really upped their game here and they are supported as always by an excellent supporting cast joined this time with memorable work by Emma Thompson, David Thewlis, Michael Gambon (taking over as Dumbledore) and the brilliant Gary Oldman - fantastic as Sirius Black.

The story is fantastic, werewolves, time travel and Dementors! Brilliant! Maybe the best book in the HP series, and the best film!'


 

7. HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE - Streaming Netflix

Stewart - ★★★★★

'Another excellent entry in the series, this one is quite action packed as well with the Triwizard tournament. There's a distinctive tone change here thanks to the appearance of the series big villain, brought to life deliciously by Ralph Fiennes. Excellent work by the cast as always and special effects are perfect. Superb!'

 

8. HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS: PART 1 - Streaming Netflix

The sixth in the blockbuster fantasy adventure series, starring Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson. The ruthless Death Eaters announce the return of their master, Lord Voldemort, with a series of attacks on London. As disaster looms, Professor Dumbledore brings former tutor Horace Slughorn back to Hogwarts so that young wizard Harry Potter can learn from him the secrets of Voldemort's power.


 

9. SHANG-CHI AND THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS - Streaming Disney+

Daniel - ★★★★

'Shangchi is the latest Marvel film to be released and as a big fan of the franchise, I went to see it in the cinema in its opening week.

It's the story of a man called Shang-Chi, a Chinese man living in California. After being attacked by thugs, sent by his father, he goes to visit him and finds out that his Dad wants to raid a village to try and find his wife. It's now up to Shang-Chi and his sister to stop this from happening and save everyone.

I thought the film was fun and I liked the Kung Fu scenes but I found the plot a bit complicated at times.'


 

10. WALLACE & GROMIT IN THE CURSE OF THE WERE-RABBIT - Streaming Amazon Prime

Wallace and his loyal dog, Gromit, set out to discover the mystery behind the garden sabotage that plagues their village and threatens the annual giant vegetable growing contest.

 

11. NIMONA (2023) - Streaming Netflix

Stewart - ★★★★★

"A brilliant fantasy adventure with themes of LGBTQ+ representation at its core. The animation is stunning, the jokes hilarious, vocal performances from Moretz and Ahmed spot on! Wonderful characters, love it, watch it!"

 

12. PRINCESS MONONOKE (1997) - Streaming Netflix
