Snoopy And Charlie Brown The Peanuts Movie

Hiya guys and girls Today I am reviewing a dvd which was sent to me a few days ago from mumsnet as I am one of their mummy bloggers myself and my family are very excited to review it for you with half term coming up we would like to see if it gets the half term factor.

The dvd is snoopy and it is due to be released on dvd and blu ray 30th may.

First Impressions Before watching

Me and my family are a big lover of movies, I am more of a chick flick girl but do enjoy the odd children's and family films, my little girl and hubby are a big lover of ice age and other movies. So we was all excited to watch this and find out what the movie was like and if it was one we all could watch and enjoy without me falling asleep or getting distracted by facebook, which i normally do when a film is boring or not to my taste, stay tuned to find out what we think of Snoopy and Charlie Brown The Movie and if we recommend it as a half term movie.

About Snoopy And Charlie Brown The Movie.

In Snoopy and charlie brown: the peanuts movie, good ol’ charlie brown, Snoopy, lucy and linus and the rest of the much loved peanuts gang appear as you have never seen them before in a brand new feature film from the wonderful imagination of charles m. schulz and the creators of ice age. Join everyone's favourite eternal optimist, charlie brown, as he embarks on a heroic quest, while his beagle pal snoopy takes to the skies to pursue his arch nemesis, the red baron. It is a hilarious and heart-warming adventure not to be missed.

What Me and My Family Think Of The Movie.

Chloe loved it right from the start where the children had a snow day which made the start of the film fun and happy, Charlie brown is so sweet and adorable we love him.
We loved the part where charlie goes all shy and red when the red haired girl walks into the classroom. We also loved the part where charlie helps out his sister which shows his really caring loving personality which reminded me of myself.

halfway through chloe got tired so didn't end up watching rest of the film but says from what she saw she really enjoyed it, hubby on the other end lost interest really quick although he was a big lover of charlie brown and snoopy as a child.

I really enjoyed watching it and loved the part where charlie goes all red when the lovely red haired girl walks into the classroom, it is a lovable moment in the film which kinda made my heart melt, I also loved how shy charlie brown is and how innocent he is which makes you love him and want him to pick up the courage to talk to the girl with the red hair.
When watching it lucy reminded me of chloe because she is really confident but really bossy at the same time, even though chloe says she's not bossy, kids aye.
Anyway as you can tell I kind of enjoyed it more then my hubby and daughter.

Overall Verdict

Wow what Can I say I am impressed considering I am fussy when it comes to family and children's movies I was suitably Impressed, Not only did I not fall asleep I watched it without logging onto facebook and replying to all my emails. I didn't even wanna leave my seat to go toilet I was so engrossed and got right into it from the word go chloe also really enjoyed  some of it then got bit distracted and wouldn't sit still as she was tired so she went to bed, hubby also lost interest halfway through so went to bed.

I really enjoyed watching it and loved when charlie brown went all red when the red haired girl walks into the classroom, I really love how innocent charlie brown is he is a very lovable character who reminds me of me, very loving and kind and honest.

I felt the film was at a great pace and easy to follow with lots of lovely characters with all different personalities, from the bossy to the innocent each character has got their own little personality. I also loved some of the soundtracks in the movie which make the movie more fun to watch especially when charlie brown shows of his lovable dance moves.

I do feel the film is aimed more to children, or families who enjoy this kind of film.
Also adults who may have been big snoopy and charlie brown fans when they was younger like my hubby saying that he didn't 100% enjoy it himself but everyone is different.

I would give the movie 8/10 purely for the fact I watched it all the way through and loved the storyline it was really engrossing and I really wanted to see if charlie would pick up the courage to talk to the red haired girl who he as been trying to impress throughout the film.

The Black Farmer Sausages

Hey guys and girls, I am back again hope you're all well. As some of you may or may not know it is celiac awareness month. I myself was recently sent for blood tests because they found out I had anemia from another blood test I had done previously because of knee pain I have had for 7 years. Anyway the recent bloods testing for celiac have come back negative although the nurse is sending me for further tests to see what Is wrong with me, Anyway fitting in with the theme of celiac awareness month I am reviewing some sausages from the black farmer which are gluten free.

Find out about the black farmer by clicking the link above.

My thoughts on the sausages.
I wasn't to sure what they would taste like at first with been gluten free sausages i was thinking they may taste bland, because most people say gluten free stuff can taste bland.
But i thought id give them a try anyway as it is good to try new things.

The price of the sausages are not too bad at 3.50 a pack not too bad but more than I am currently paying for sausages as I normally buy supermarkets own for a pound a pack due to having to budget to make sure my money covers all my bills etc.

The taste of the sausages were pretty nice full of flavour and tasted better than any sausage I have tried so far, I loved the taste as did my hubby and my daughter. My daughter asked if we can eat these more often as they are really yummy.
Overall Verdict
Overall I am impressed with the sausages that tasted great not to sure on the price though with the sausages being £3.50 a pack due to I normally buy food in bulk.
Saying that for the great taste, and the amount you get in a pack as well as being gluten free the price is reasonable to a certain extent, as other places would probably charge a lot more for gluten free sausages.

Me and my family really loved how the sausages were very flavoursome and tasty.
For a child who is fussy with taste and a hubby who can be picky with certain foods as well as me miss fussy food critic We really loved every bite of the sausages.

The only thing I found with them even though they was lovely tasty and juicy  felt a bit chewy in some parts but hubby said it was not chewy so probably me nitpicking to be fair I am a fussy person when it comes to food.
