Robots

Price: - -

Directed by Chris Wedge. Voices by Ewan McGregor, Halle Berry, Mel Brooks, Amanda Bynes, Robin Williams …
I confess, I fell asleep about three quarters of the way in to this film, but I gather from the kids that it has a happy ending. None-the-less, it does show that it wasn’t exactly and interesting film to watch. From the makers of Finding Nemo, I was expecting more of the humour – which I loved in that film – but this obviously had a different script writer, as there were only a few moments where I smiled, let alone laughed. It was far too serious for my liking, and my 6 year old soon got restless. Older boys with an interest in robots or inventing things will like it though.
The story wasn’t exactly original either, and transposing it onto robots didn’t disguise that fact. A boy from a poor family, given hand-me-downs all his life goes off to seek his fortune in the city with an idea of an invention to sell. Things don’t go as expected; riches don’t come easily his way, and you can probably guess the rest.
Although, girls will probably think Robots is ok, this is definitely one for the boys, and that’s good news for parents who have no shortage of choice with all the Barbie and Disney Princess films.
Overall, it’s an average, ok kind of film.

Review of the L’Oreal Voluminous Superstar Mascara
February 15, 2017
On holiday in America in 2015 I bought the L’Oreal Beauty Tubes mascara. This was amazing, but when I went back last year, I couldn’t find it again. Instead, L’Oreal had this mascara, called Voluminous Superstar. It is one of those mascaras with two ends – a white coat first to lengthen your lashes and then the actual mascara to go over the top. This was just what I was looking for as I’ve liked those kind ever since I bought the Maybelline XXL volume mascara. (See my review here from 2005)……
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them review (no spoilers)
November 20, 2016
This is just a quick extra post because I went to watch this film last night and thought it was absolutely fantastic! As Harry Potter fans, we were very excited in this household and the kids and I dressed up for the occasion in 1920’s style outfits! We ate a meal first at the Frankie & Benny’s opposite the Cineworld cinema in Yeovil (which, by the way is hugely improved from last time we went there – I think they’ve employed new kitchen staff) and sneaked pudding, in the form of chocolate buttons, in my bag into Screen eight!….
