How to Train Your Dragon 2 Review (2014)

When How To Train Your Dragon hit theatres some four years ago, no-one was expecting it to become the runaway hit that it did.

Frozen Review (2013)

It’s hard to find a kid who didn’t grow up watching Disney.

Wreck-It Ralph Review (2012)

Wreck-It Ralph has so much soul and character, it would be easy to think it’s a Pixar film. You’d be wrong however as this is the latest creation of Walt Disney Animation and following the success of Tangled, Wreck-it Ralph shows that the studio is having a bit of a resurgence. In the movie, much…
