Movies: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (12A), Warcraft: The Beginning (12A), Alice Through The Looking Glass (PG) & Underworld: Awakening (DVD - 18)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (12A) – what’s it about? Shredder escapes prison and teams up with Krang to take over the world.

It’s turtletastic! Ok this might be nostalgia talking as I was a massive Turtles fan growing up so to me this is totally awesome. I do love the way they’ve kept the characters personalities and the storylines. Shredder was a pretty cool enemy along with all his little gang; they are such an odd and quirky bunch. This movie doesn’t disappoint after the last one, it’s as good, and again is filled with humour and action.

Warcraft: The Beginning (12A) – what’s it about? The Orcs invade Azeroth in hope of finding a new world to call their own.

I think if you’ve played Warcraft or know of it in some capacity it will help with enjoying this one. I have dabbled but am not a total fangirl but I got a lot out of the movie and stuff but the people I was watching it with didn’t, I came out really hyped thinking this was brilliant but they came out meh. It had a good story in my opinion, gave a little more humanity (probably the wrong word to use) to the races and the world really, and it had some good action too.

Alice Through The Looking Glass (PG) – what’s it about? Alice returns to Wonderland to help the Mad Hatter.

This is the sequel to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland so really if you liked that movie then you’ll probably like this one too. This one has Alice both in the real world and Wonderland so you get a mix of the two and some parts of it are a little dark – well some of the bits in the real world anyway. It was a good story but anyone who knows the Alice stories will know the plot and kind of what to expect, but the movie generally was made and acted well. Yeah I have to say I found it pretty enjoyable and laughed a few times too!

Underworld: Awakening (DVD - 18) – what’s it about? The existence of Vampires and Lycans is now known by the humans and the races must battle for survival.

Raaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh more Vampire and Lycan action in another action packed and violent film with the gang! What more do you want in life than these creatures having a good scuffle and guns and chowing down on the odd human, nothing! This is what life is all about! If you love the Underworld series then you’ll enjoy this one and if you haven’t seen it in a while (like me) then it’s definitely worth a re-watch just to step back into the world!
