Robots

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.

Negotiating lipstick with piercings and a wonky mouth!
March 3, 2017
I have never really worn lipstick. In my mind, it just hasn’t suited me – I have a very thin top lip and and a very fat bottom lip and overall my mouth is very lop-sided. I could happily go on being self-critical, but I won’t! I also think part of the problem is I was trying the wrong colours – brown was very much the fashion in the ’90s when I was playing around with make-up, and although I never really thought lipstick fashions were a thing, I have noticed that brown lipsticks are back….
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!….
Tarte eyeshadow palette review
A review of the Tarte Tarteist Amazonian Clay eyeshadow palette
November 14, 2017
I am constantly on the hunt for a matte eyeshadow palette, and if I see one, I will probably buy it! I honestly don’t know why they aren’t more popular, because I just cannot get on with an ordinary eye shadow! I had a little splurge on make-up a couple of years ago and talked about my issues with the No7 eyeshadows and the Maybelline eyeshadows that I bought. They simply do not look good on me and the pigmentation is rubbish. I decided it was about time I stopped faffing about with mid-range High Street make-up and actually spend some money….
