This is my film review for our second mini project within the overall project.I looked at different codes and conventions of film reviews and the most common ones were: -The text is of the same font through out the article except for the title. -Most reviews contains one large image. -Aswell as highlighting a quote from the text by changing its colour and font size. -The image shown in our piece is a still motion picture from the actual film as i felt this was more appropriate as people reading the review who then go on to watch the film will automatically relate to the frozen image to the actual clip of the film These are

Life As We Know It
When her best friends die in a car accident, Holly (Heigl) is left to raise their young child. The only problem? Her co-surrogate is feckless ladies' man Eric (Duhamel)...
Knocked Up’s Katherine Heigl returns to the baby-boom comedy — but this time, it’s someone else’s sprogs. Holly’s best friends die in a car crash, leaving their child Sophie to her and their friend Eric (Josh Duhamel). Naturally, he is a self-serving ladies’ man whom she loathes, and so they must bicker and eventually bond over dirty nappies and nosy neighbours. So, the outline’s no great shakes, and the tone’s changeable: it goes from poignant drama to perky comedy without much respect for the fictional dead. Still, there are laughs: The Broken Hearts Club director Greg Berlanti brings a dash of irreverence to the table and the humour can go dark. It isn’t as insipid as the plot suggests, it’s just a shame the story goes nowhere — slowly.
Funnier and darker than you might expect, although the tone fluctuates wildly enough to seriously disorientate.

Babe: Pig In The City
When the bank threatens to forclose Babe's farm, he and the farmer's wife agree to open a state fair for a large fee, but loose their way in the big city.
How did this happen? Where Babe brought deep-rooted joy, the sequel brings fidgety depression. And save us from films in which chimpanzees dress in human clothes. Didn't we ban that or something?
