January/February Films

Hello everybody!

Today, I’m going to be writing about the 5 films I watched in January/February, and my thoughts on them. Onto the post!


Paddington– this was the perfect film to start the year off; it’s uproriously funny, exciting and heartwarming. I loved Paddington and the Browns a great deal, and the villain was truly horrid, and I was so worried for Paddington throughout. Every single minute of this was a pleasure (though I did particularly enjoy the bathroom scene πŸ˜‚) and I’m so excited to watch the 2nd soon!

Zootropolis– this film is SO underrated. It’s funny, I love the world and how it’s represented with the fabulous animation, I like the soundtrack, the characters are awesome , the plot is really well paced and exciting with a pretty unexpected twist. I loved this rewatch so much again, and you should watch this is you haven’t and love the more modern Disney films especially.

A Royal Night Out– I was delighted when I found this on Netflix, as I never quite made it to the cinema when it was first released. I’m now very grateful I did not go to the cinema to see it, given I turned off halfway through, by which point nothing remotely resembling a plot had happened, and the constant theme tune of the brass band alongside the characters shrieking at each other was giving me a sore head.

Coco– sorry Nemo, but you’re no longer my favourite Pixar film. It’s set in Mexico on DΓ¬a de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) as music-loving Miguel, whose family forbids music to the family’s past, is transported to the land of the dead and meets his deceased family members. The animation is stunning, the plot twists surprised me much more than I thought they would have and I already can’t wait to watch this again on DVD. Coco is funny, sweet, clever and heartwarming, and I can’t recommend you watch it enough.

Tangled– the last film I watched (rewatched) was this, which is one of my favourite Disney films. It’s as I’m sure you know, the slightly adapted story of Rapunzel, and it’s lovely. The animation is beautiful (especially in the floating lantern scene 😍), Flynn and Rapunzel are my favourite Disney couple, and Pascal and Maximus are two of the best Disney sidekicks in existence! Plus, the soundtrack is super catchy and fun.

  1. I actually only watched Tangled for the first time recently, and I really enjoyed it! I absolutely fell in love with Coco as well – I was obsessed with The Day of the Dead for so long, so I knew I’d love this before I even watched it, with such a cute storyline and some real β€˜laugh out loud’ moments.. πŸ™Š

  3. We LOVED Paddington but sadly didn’t make it to the cinema for P2 so will have to get the DVD in due course. And Zootropolis is amazing, totally love that film, it’s so funny. The others I haven’t seen although we do have Tangled recorded (somewhere) but I’m having a hard time trying to persuade Flora to watch it with me as it hasn’t got a dragon or a shark in it, haha! Lovely reviews, Amy πŸ™‚ xx
