Game Review: LOL Dolls

Game Review: LOL Dolls

 

My daughter was so excited to get this game. She loves the LOL Dolls and because their Dolls are fairly-well made, I didn’t hesitate.

However, my biggest complaint is the ‘doll’ cardboard figures are flimsy and the plastic holders that are supposed to keep them upright, don’t. Even I have trouble getting them to stay up.

If they had better ‘doll’ pieces for the game that stayed in place and up, I’d rate this much higher. Gameplay is good and my daughter loved getting a prize from one of the surprise balls when she landed on the correct piece.

Playing this game makes me wish they had holders for real LOL dolls to keep them upright during play as well as better holders for the cardboard cutouts.

Movie Review: Solo: A Star Wars Story

Movie Review: Solo: A Star Wars Story

A group of people standing in a row, in the middle stands Han Solo pointing his blaster. The background is divided into blocks resembling a cockpit window.

 

Solo is a 2018 movie of Han Solo’s life before his appearance in any of the other Star Wars’ movies. I liked seeing how he met Chewbacca (Chewie) and Han met but I would’ve thought there would’ve been a bit more back and forth fighting and arguing.

Also loved Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian. He did an amazing performance and even channeled the previous actor who played Lando, Billy Dee Williams.

The movie tried very hard and if this was one of my first Star Wars movies, it would be awesome. However, since I have seen all the other films, I have to rate it accordingly. It didn’t have the heart and grit of Rouge One but still a movie to add to my Star Wars collection.

And I loved knowing a bit of back history of Han and Chewie and how they got the  Millennium Falcon. Pieces of the movie were predictible but there were enough surprises for me to enjoy the movie.

My rating 4.6 stars out of 5

Movie Review: Ralph Breaks the Internet

Wreck-It Ralph 2 is a great kids movie and appropriate for the whole family. I really enjoyed seeing the characters Ralph and Penelope and what they’d been up to since the last movie.

I also liked how the movie portrayed the internet including briefly showing how comments can hurt someone.

The movie is heartwarming and touches on friendship, trust, and growth. However, it does gloss over some of these leading to main character facing himself, and earn a ton of money, a bit too quickly and easily.

Also, I would’ve liked to see more of Fix-It Felix Jr and Sergeant Tamora Jean Calhoun.

Overall though, a great movie full of nostalgia. If you liked the first Wreck-It Ralph movie, you’ll enjoy this one too.

My rating 4.3 stars out of 5
