Last Day :-(

Its the last day of the Orlando holiday. We smashed Disney and Universal the first week. Gareth & Sarah headed home. Mark, Carol, Charlotte and Elliot went off on their Disney cruise, and we had a quiet 2nd week by the pool, with a sneak 2nd visit to Disney!

Fast and Furious 7 Film Review

Was pleasantly surprised by this film. Not a fan of the series, but we were waiting to get on the plane killing time, however is was actually pretty good. Some great cars and stunts, some fights from Statham. Statham is out for revenge and wants to take down Diesel's crew, while at the same time Diesel's crew is retrieving a device to track Statham. Its an overly complicated storyline though, as basically Statham is hiding round every corner trying to kill them! Anyways all the stunts and action take the focus off this. We didn't quite make it to the end, as we had to leave, but I definitely want to see the end of this film.

Cinderella Movie Review

We really enjoyed the Maleficent live remake from last year, great story and acting. We really hated the Cinderella remake this year! The musical nods were missing, no songs, and the most over-saccharine sickly story ever, even more so that the animated version. The aunt and ugly sisters aren't evil enough. I could go on, but just didn't like it. Luckily we were in the AMC Theater in Downtown Disney where they do an excellent dine-in service, so we could buzz for alcohol, yes even at 11am!

Spongebob Squarepants: Sponge Out of Water Movie Review

The Krabby Patty formula has been stolen and Bikini Bottom has been thrown into turmoil! But Plankton isn't responsible, its a pirate who wants to setup his own burger van. Spongebob and co. have to venture upto the surface to retrieve the formal and restore order. The twist is theres a storybook that changes the films story when written in, which is how the team get their superhero powers seen in the poster. Slightly wild and wacky, and slightly long in places, I don't think this was as good as the first one.
