Farewell Odeon Whiteleys

Finding a good cinema is like finding a good pub or restaurant. You keep going back. The cinema in Whiteleys was originally a UCI (which was bought out by Odeon who in turn are owned by AMC Theatres) opened it's doors on December 1st 1989. I've been going this cinema pretty much since it opened.... Continue Reading →

First Man

I love a good space film- from films based on real-life events like 'The Right Stuff' and 'Apollo 13' to fictional films like 'Space Cowboys'. I just love them! Thanks to my dad I've always had an interest in space, space travel etc. My dad used to write off to NASA in the 60s and... Continue Reading →

*Obligatory Spoiler Warning!* This isn't the kind of film I'd normally go and see but I had my niece and nephews with me. My nephew Charlie is obsessed with Tigger and my niece Jessica had a similar obsession with Piglet when she was younger (though secretly I think she still does). The story starts with...

The Meg

As usual, beware of spoilers! It's the summer holidays, I have my Odeon Limitless card so why not try and see every film possible this summer? Even one I was convinced was going to be a total rip-off of one of my favourite films, Jaws. It didn't help that I've never really been a fan of... Continue Reading →

The Darkest Minds

Beware- Spoiler alert below! I had no knowledge of this film prior to watching it. I now know it to be part of a series of Young Adult (I like to think I still am one!) novels a bit like The Hunger Games- another book/film series that I enjoyed even if the middle film was... Continue Reading →

The Equalizer 2

Spoiler-ish review so beware! The Equalizer 2 is the follow-up to the successful 2014 film The Equalizer which was based on the 80s TV show of the same name starring Edward Woodward. This film marks the first time that Denzel Washington has appeared in a sequel to one of his own films. Once again, Denzel... Continue Reading →

Incredibles 2

This will be a very quick review! I know I will be in the minority here, but I honestly thought that after 14 years we would get a better sequel. It's an ok movie but I found the plot very, very predictable. The best part of the film for me was Baby Jack-Jack and Violet's... Continue Reading →
