Film Review: Puss in Boots: The Last Wish starring Antonio BanderasFeb 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.

I recently paid a mystery shopper’s type of visit to Toy Fair 2023 at Kensington Olympia. I have a bit of a cynical view of toys; they get given in vast quantities, entertain for half an hour, only to be abandoned in a drawer or cupboard soon after, and end up in charity shops. They are often of doubtful value for encouraging children with learning, creating, socialising or imagining. And the PLASTIC.
Having said that, the Toy Fair did have some good ideas worth mentioning.
