Craig's Movie Reviews

I love movies. I love writing about them. Hope you like reading what I write.

Lord Branthon from “Downton Abbey” and a small bear.

My only real memory of Paddington Bear from my childhood was seeing some books on a shelf with him on the cover and a recurring advert for Marmite in which he gave some Marmite sandwiches to some birds which they immediately regurgitated (fascinating advertising strategy!).

Therefore I had no idea what to expect from the movie. What I got was some pretty decent slapstick and a heart-warming tale of a bear trying to find a home. Pretty standard kid’s movie then.

However, add in a completely insane Nicole Kidman as an evil taxidermist and a few brilliantly funny lines and you have yourself a memorable flick.

I had fun with this movie and I think you will to if you share a film with your kids.

Here’s my review: “Paddington”

2423, 22, 21, 20, 19, 18, 17, 16, 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 21
