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.

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.

Movie review: Mirror Mirror

The school holidays are being a bit rainy so sometimes I just watch a film. This week I watched a new one called Mirror Mirror. It is the story of Snow White but it is very different to the Disney version which I have watched before. I like this version because of the dwarves – they look very different! In this film, they rob people but they don’t do that in the other one. My favourite dwarf is Chuck because he is very funny and when he smiles he looks very kind.

My favourite part of the film was when Snow White’s stepmother had lots of beauty treatments to make herself always look young. She had a strange treatment and they painted bird poo on her face and put worms in her ears! They got a bee to sting her lips to make them look bigger. It made me laugh! I couldn’t believe that some ladies do things like this to make themselves look younger!

I really liked the bit when the stepmother put a potion in the prince’s drink to make him have puppy love. It made him act like a puppy and he licked her! There are lots of funny bits in this film like where the price calls the dwarves ‘children’ and they don’t like it so they hang him upside down in a tree and all he has on is his trousers!

I’d give this film 10 out of 10 even though there are no songs in it.

Mirror Mirror (STUDIOCANAL) was released on DVD (RRP £19.99) and Blu Ray (RRP £24.99) on 30 July 2012. Tom was provided with a review copy for the purposes of this review.

“One of the most beloved stories of all time gets a modern make over and comes to life, in this spectacular motion picture event starring Oscar®-winner Julia Roberts as the evil Queen and Lily Collins (The Blind Side) as Snow White. A fresh and funny retelling of the classic fairy tale, the film also stars Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as the Prince, Sean Bean (“Game of Thrones”) as the King, and Nathan Lane (The Birdcage) as the Queen’s hapless and bungling servant, Brighton.”
