The Secret Life of Pets

Max (voiced by Louis CK) is a loyal little dog who loves his owner Katie (Ellie Kemper) as a dog should. But when Katie brings home a massive street mutt named Duke (Eric Stonestreet) things get a little tense between the two canines. Duke wants a home, but Max is jealous of Katie giving all her affection to Duke. Before long, the two get into a scrap that leads to them getting lost in the bustling streets of New York City on the run from animal control and from a crazy rabbit who hates pet ownership. Against all odds, the two must find their way back home before Katie gets back to see her dogs gone.

Do your kids love cute animals going on fun adventures? Are you curious about how the world appears in the mind of your pet? Then you’ll definitely want to check this movie out. You’ll find many dogs, a fat cat who can’t be bothered to care about anything, and a hawk struggling with his predatory instincts. All ages will enjoy this film. In fact, seeing this film is well worth the feeling that you may be the oldest person in the cinema without children.

CATCH IT ON BLU-RAY: The Conjuring 2

Its predecessors were loved by horror movie buffs across the globe, but the latest addition to The Conjuring series has taken a rather different route from The Conjuring (2013) or Annabelle (2014). Following up on the strange and unexplainable cases covered by Ed and Lorraine Warren, the film follows the story of a lower income English family: single mother Peggy Hodgson (played by Frances O’Conner) with her three rambunctious children of varying ages. When Janet Hodgson (Madison Wolfe), the middle child of the family, begins seeing unusual apparitions and hearing a sinister voice demanding her and her family to leave, even the police are helpless in explaining the source of the vengeful spirit. Hearing of this unfortunate family, Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) decide to fly to England to assist them in ridding their home of an angry poltergeist. While The Conjuring 2 will not give you nightmares (probably a good thing), it will leave you cheering for the Warrens and the Hodgsons. If you like great characters and an addictive story, then you will enjoy this film.
