Film Review: Puss in Boots: The Last Wish starring Antonio Banderas

Feb 03 2023

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish was beyond my expectations. I walked into the cinema with low expectations, and came out completely overwhelmed with this masterpiece. Before I knew it was I was reintroduced to my favourite talking, walking and sword swinging cat portrayed by Antonio Banderas returning as the role after 11 years.

I loved seeing Puss in Boots return for yet another adventure, and thought they might ruin him but that was far from the truth. The Last Wish consistently delivers good jokes for young and old, which results in a fantastic movie, enjoyed by all ages. The movie includes dazzling visuals with both the computer-animated style we saw in previous movies like Shrek as well as more hand-drawn techniques and a brand new painterly style to bring the fairy tale paintings to life. Check out why I loved it so much. It comes out in UK cinemas today.

,The light trail at the WWT London Wetland Centre in Barnes was beyond my expectations. I walked into the Wetlands not knowing what was going to be like.  In past years I had been to other light shows so I was unsure what this one would bring to our local community.

ILLUMINATURE didn’t disappoint. The show really surprised me with the interactiveness of the whole experience in the form of buttons to press that switch on lights and lily pads that light up as you jump on them, all to spread the message of saving the Wetlands. I loved every single bit of the lights and even got to enjoy a nice hot chocolate drink as I explored the trail.

The Snowman at the Peacock Theatre was beyond my expectations. I walked into the theatre unsure on what to expect, and before I knew it, I was introduced to a colourful winter scenery and extravagant costumes. The show really surprised me with the way the actors and dancers traversed around the stage to bring the wholesome story of the magical film and picture book to life for its 25th year on stage. I loved every single bit of the performance and even got to meet The Snowman in person at the interval!

West End Show review: Machine de Cirque at Peacock Theatre

Jun 02 2022

The Machine de Cirque show at the Peacock Theatre last night was beyond my expectations. I wandered into the theatre expecting a few circus acts, and before I knew it, I was introduced to this ominous yet intriguing scenery from which arose six talented individuals. The acts included a teeterboard, trapeze, a bicycle, juggling clubs, a drum kit and even a bath towel!  The show really surprised me with the way they traversed around the stage and used the cleverly built contraption to display their talents in a fresh and creative way. Throughout the performance, the cast had to rely  on simple machines to push their skills to the limit. The lack of computers in the play make the acts feel raw, just like being at the circus.
