Please note, we only cover films we have seen and can recommend.

Wonder Park
In Wonder Park, a young and imaginative girl named Cameron “June” Bailey (Brianna Denski) spends her childhood days constructing Wonderland, which is an amusement park filled with fantastical rides and talking animals with her mother (Jennifer Garner) and her friends. However, her mom falls ill and has to go away for treatment. June begins to lose hope and along with her hope, she also loses her imagination. June also feels her dad cannot cope without her, which makes her run away from Match camp in order to return to her dad.

During this time, June finds that the magical world of Wonderland exists, but it’s now facing a darkness that is tearing the park apart.

If you are looking to treat the kids to a fantastic animated film then Wonder Park is your best bet. It’s a bit emotional and gets the tears flowing on more than one occasion, but it is so worth watching. Overall, Wonder Park has an entertaining and engaging story that is coupled with some of the finest animation and lighting effects I have seen.

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part
Following the events of the first film, Finn’s sister Bianca has been invited to share their father’s LEGO collection; in the LEGO universe, this is represented by the arrival of gigantic Duplo aliens. Emmet approaches them in peace and offers them a heart, with the aliens accepting this token of friendship. When one eats it and playfully demands more, Lucy interprets this as an attack and retaliates. The Duplo creatures cry and invade, making a mess of Bricksburg, but Emmet tells Lucy that “Everything can still be awesome.”

Five years later, Bianca has taken some of Finn’s LEGO creations and other toys in their basement to play with, along with her own set of Duplo bricks. In the LEGO universe, the Duplo army’s periodic invasions have turned Bricksburg into the post-apocalyptic wasteland Apocalypseburg, hardening most citizens. Emmet remains upbeat and wants to move into a dream home with Lucy, but is troubled by visions of an impending cataclysm dubbed “Armamageddon”.

The Lego Movie 2 is a fantastic film to watch as it not only appeals to the kids, but also adults. Not only is it charming and colourful, but it is also a bag of laughs. To add to this, it has some stellar animation and a catchy soundtrack that is pretty much going to get stuck in your head.

Fighting with my Family
Born into a tight-knit wrestling family, Paige and her brother Zak are ecstatic when they get the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to try out for the WWE. But when only Paige earns a spot in the competitive training program, she must leave her loved ones behind and face this new cutthroat world alone. Paige’s journey pushes her to dig deep and ultimately prove to the world that what makes her different is the very thing that can make her a star.

If you are a fan of the WWE, much like myself, as well as want a sneak peek into the world behind the glitz and glamour of the company then this is the film for you. While it mainly follows the story of Paige’s rise to fame it also highlights the struggles that her family had. From battling their finances to battling one another inside and outside the ring, Fighting with my Family has a lot of deep moments that resonate with the audience. While emotions are on a high here there are plenty of comical moments that even out the tone of the film. It’s definitely a must watch film regardless of whether you are a wrestling fan or not.

The Kid Who Would Be King
Old-school magic meets the modern world when young Alex stumbles upon the mythical sword Excalibur. He soon unites his friends and enemies, and they become knights who join forces with the legendary wizard Merlin. Together, they must save mankind from the wicked enchantress Morgana and her army of supernatural warriors.

The Kid Who Would Be King is a phenomenal movie for the kids to see. It’s got fantasy, action, and a bit of comedy here and there. While it is a phenomenal film for the kids, I personally feel that this film will not go down too well with adults or older teenagers. This is due to the fact that it is not entirely aimed at them and they might find themselves getting a tad bit bored.

What Men Want
Passed up for a well-deserved promotion, sports agent Ali Davis (Taraji P. Henson) wonders what else she needs to do to succeed in a man’s world. Hoping to find answers from a psychic, Ali is persuaded to drink an abnormal concoction, which ultimately gives her the ability to hear what the men around her are thinking.

While Ali rejects the ability at first, she begins to use it to turn the tables on her obnoxious male colleagues while racing to sign the next basketball superstar. Along the way, she also tries to juggle a rather complicated relationship with prospective boyfriend Will (Aldis Hodge) as well as deal with the needs of her assistant Brandon Wallace (Josh Brener).

What Men Want is not a film I originally thought I would watch; however, my opinion has since changed since seeing it. Not only is there a decent storyline here, but there are some genuinely comedic moments that had me laughing hysterically. There were also moments where I felt I could not hold back the tears; however, I managed to do so as no one wants to see a man ugly cry in a cinema.

Alita: Battle Angel
Set several centuries in the future, the abandoned Alita is found in the scrapyard of Iron City by Ido, a compassionate cyber-doctor who takes the unconscious cyborg Alita to his clinic. When Alita awakens, she has no memory of who she is, nor does she have any recognition of the world she finds herself in. As Alita learns to navigate her new life and the treacherous streets of Iron City, Ido tries to shield her from her mysterious past.

Alita: Battle Angel is a spectacular film when it comes to storyline, visuals and acting. If you haven’t seen it yet, it is an absolute must watch.
