Half term DVD review – Transformers Prime: Season One

Transformers PrimeIt is half term and I am doing lots of exciting things this week. I had a whole day at the soft play centre with my friends on Monday and yesterday I went to London and tonight I am going to dress up as a zombie and go trick-or-treating! But I also got sent a new DVD to watch and write about on my blog!

It is called Transformers Prime: Season One and has got five different episodes of Transformers on it and I really enjoyed watching it because it had my favourite characters like Optimus Prime and Bumblebee in it. I like them both because they are very strong and they can change from being different vehicles into robots. On this DVD they go on lots of adventures to protect some normal children who have found out about them and also they fight the evil transformers who are called Decepticons.

I wanted to write about this DVD because I thought that you might want to watch it in half term if you are staying at home one day or if you have a long journey in the car. There is a trailer here on my blog which you might enjoy:

 

Transformers Prime: Season One (Universal Pictures) is available on DVD now, priced £10.99 and rated PG. Tom was lent a copy for the purposes of this review.

My visit to the National Gallery

Yesterday, I went to the National Gallery in London with my family. I have been learning about Van Gogh at school and we went there to see his paintings called the sunflowers, the chair and also Cezanne’s ‘Bathers’. I almost fainted when I saw actual real life Van Gogh paintings! They were way bigger than I expected and I could see Van Gogh’s oil paints stand out from the canvas because it was so thick. I couldn’t pick a favourite painting because I liked the whole gallery actually! In the gift shop I bought some postcards and a ‘mini masterpiece’ kit so that I could do my own masterpiece at home.

So today I did the mini masterpiece. I decided to paint some fruits and a painting for my mum. The fruit was called a ‘still life’ and Van Gogh and Cezanne both liked doing them so I told mum I was being “a bit like Cezanne”!

Movie review: The Jungle Bunch

The Jungle Bunch DVDI was asked to watch The Jungle Bunch, which is a film that’s out to buy this week. The film is about a penguin who thinks he’s a tiger because when he was in a pile of eggs and the walruses took over the South Pole, one of the walruses knocked his egg into the sea and he travelled for miles and miles then hatched in the jungle.

The great warrior tiger trained him to be a master of martial arts. He could fight but he wasn’t really that good because he was a penguin and not a tiger like he thought he was!

The Jungle Bunch – which is Maurice the penguin (who thinks he’s a tiger) and his friends like poisonous frogs called Al and Bob, Miguel the gorilla, a warthog and a tiger fish called Junior – go on an adventure from the jungle to the South Pole. They walk through the jungle and the gorilla finds a big log. They also find a stick and use it to row the log so they can get to the South Pole. They want to get there so they can save it from the walruses!

I really enjoyed the film because it was quite funny and I liked all the different voices and the characters who were all really colourful and exciting. I would give this film five stars out of five. My favourite characters are the poisonous frogs because they are really funny.

 

The Jungle Bunch (Universal Pictures) is available on DVD now, RRP £6.99. It is also available for digital download and via video-on-demand. The DVD features six mini movies from ‘Behind the Scenes’ of the jungle. Tom was provided with this film free of charge for the purposes of this review.

Have you missed me?

Conker spidersIt has been ages since I did a blog post! I am in Year 2 at school now and it is really busy because I have bigger homework and more reading to do. I have been learning about famous people like Florence Nightingale and Stevie Wonder and Vincent Van Gogh at school – it is very fun because I didn’t know anything about them before and now I know loads of things. Like today I found out that not only is Stevie Wonder blind, but also he lost his sense of smell in a car crash!

I still go to Beavers as well and now I do swimming lessons, so there isn’t much time to do my blog! But I still love my blog and I have got lots of things to tell you about, so I hope you will come back and read my new posts when I do them. It will be very soon because I have to tell you about my sister’s birthday and there are some toys and films I want to tell you about as well. But for now, I hope you like these conker spiders I made with my dad – my teacher told me that conkers scare away spiders so I made these but they scared him because he is scared of spiders!
