Film Times FRI 6 – THURS 12 SEPT

Evening!

Sorry for lack of blog last week and this weeks lateness. So, it’s back to school time! But that doesn’t mean we haven’t got plenty of choice for both kids and parents alike for an evening escape into the world of film. The new Riddick (15) is now showing, and we’ve kept light hearted new comedy We’re The Millers (15) for another week. Also showing this week is One Direction: This is Us (PG), and new romance About Time (12A) along with plenty more!

Happy cinema-going!

We’re The Millers REVIEW

WE’RE THE MILLERS (15 – ID MAY BE REQUIRED)

Reviewed by Dan

We’re The Millers is a new American comedy about a small-time drug dealer who owes money to an old friend, and we follow him and his “family” – a stripper, a virgin teenage boy who has been abandoned by his mother, and a homeless girl as they set about attempting to smuggle drugs across a state border in order to repay the debt. What could go wrong? Well, everything. And everything does. Starring Jennifer Aniston (The Bounty Hunter), Jason Sudeikis (Horrible Bosses), Will Poulter (Son of Rambow) and Emma Roberts (Wild Child), We’re The Millers is funny throughout. Certainly one to watch for comedy fans!

Acting is brilliant and comical timing spot on, there’s some very funny side characters with hilarious back stories!

If you’re looking for something light-hearted and fun, this is for you!

Blog & Film Times: 23 Aug – 29 Aug

Goooood Afternoon!

Lone Ranger, Alan Partridge, Bachelorette, and Percy Jackson have all left us this week! But fear not, brand new comedy We’re the Millers, along with Elysium and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones have all joined us for another week of movie madness here at the Plaza! Also on Thursday we’re showing One Direction: This is Us – but if you want to see it on Thursday do book your tickets soon, as it’s nearly sold out! Fear not 1D fans, it’s also showing from Friday 30th!

Note that We’re The Millers and Elysium are both rated 15 (as is Kick-Ass 2 which is still showing), and so you will be asked for ID if you look under 18. Valid ID includes passport (or photocopy of passport), student card, birth certificate with bank card, Pass ID card, and driving license.

As always, happy cinema going!

Kick-Ass 2 Review

Kick-Ass 2 (15)

Reviewed By Kate Maitland-Gleed

Star Rating: 4 Star

Although not as good as the first film, Kick- Ass 2 still had me laughing. With new characters, new problems and new mortal enemies, I was very much excited to see the next stage of the super-heroes lives. Also there was going to be a few major changes; one, Hit-Girl has grown up and is no longer the innocent child who can kill five guys with one bullet. Two, there’s no Big-Daddy, but his memory lives on, and three, no more drug dealing Frank D’Amico to hunt down, but will his son seek revenge?

Once again we see all the familiar faces; Aaron Taylor-Johnson (who plays Dave Lizewski, a.k.a Kick-Ass), Chloë Grace Moretz (who plays Mindy Macready, a.k.a Hit-Girl), and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (who plays Chris D’Amico, a.k.a The Motherf%&*^r). I’m not saying that these three couldn’t make a great film by themselves, but we need a little more bulk to the cast. How about this; Jim Carrey (who plays Colonel Stars and Stripes), Morris Chestnut (who plays Detective Marcus Williams), Claudia Lee (who plays Brooke), Clark Duke (who plays Marty, a.k.a Battle Guy), Augustus Prew (who plays Todd, a.k.a Ass Kicker), Garrett M. Brown (who plays Mr. Lizewski), Robert Emms (who plays Insect Man), Lindy Booth (who plays Night B&^*h) among others!

I was really looking forward to seeing this film as the first ‘Kick-Ass’ if one of my favourite watches, but I must say I was a little let down. Of course, the fights scenes were good and some of the new characters were very cool (I’m talking about ‘Mother Russia’), but the whole ‘super-villain’ plot behind Chris D’Amico was slightly lame. Plus the film had more sexual suggestion which I felt wasn’t needed. But as always, I did find Hit-Girl the best character. She is so awesome!!! Mind you, she didn’t have as bigger part in this film as she did in the previous one. And when we did see her, we saw how she has changed as she has grown up. Meeting boys, going on dates, wanting a first kiss… And then breaking the necks of people who hurt her friends! So, I probably will be seeing this film again but not in a hurry.

Oh, but I really want a ‘Sick-Stick’!! You’ll see…

Blog and Film Times Fri 16 Aug – Thurs 22 Aug

Evening all,

Despicable Me 2 is still proving VERY popular this summer, in fact we SOLD OUT yet again today, so make sure you book in advance for this one, especially if you’re coming on a rainy day! Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa has also been fairly popular and sold out a few times this week – if you’ve not had a chance to see it yet do come in as we’ve got it for another week! New this week we have: Planes (2D & 3D) – the latest Disney adventure from above the world of Disney/Pixar’s Cars! Also starting its full run is Kick-Ass 2 – please note this film is a 15 – meaning if you look under 18 you MUST have ID with you, or else you won’t be getting in – this is still the case with online tickets, ID must be shown on the door as well as when buying tickets from the box office.

On Wednesday and Thursday we’ve got preview screenings of supernatural The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (12A), and of Matt Damon’s latest film, Elysium (15).

Happy cinema going! Film times are below

Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa Review

Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa (15)

Reviewed By Kate Maitland-Gleed

Star Rating: 5 Stars

Now, I have never seen Alan Partridge; shock horror, but I’m sure as heck glad I went to see the film! This was the first movie that people were staying in their seats once the lights came up, just to see if there was more. Sadly there wasn’t more, but I felt no more was needed. There was enough romance, enough thrill; the only thing that lacked was the comedy… Of course I’m joking! I haven’t laughed that much at a film for ages! Steve Coogan is a brilliant actor, and I’m so glad that he decided to make this film.

Colm Meany (who plays Pat Farrell) joins Coogan to bring us this brilliant film. We also see; Sean Pertwee, Anna Maxwell Martin, Simon Greenall (who plays Micheal), Nigel Lindsay (who plays Jason Tresswell), Monica Dolan (who plays Angela), Jaspal Badwell (who plays the Police Officer), Phil Cornwall (who plays Dave Clifton), Tim Key (who plays Simon), among others…Oh and of course, little Lynn Benfield (played by Felicity Montagu) is with us all the way!

With the screening completely sold out, from the word go, I knew this film was going to be a hit. And I wasn’t let down! From the little giggles, to the belly busting outbursts of laughter, the whole cinema were laughing and cheering throughout the whole film. As I said earlier, I have never seen the Alan Partridge television series, but I felt you didn’t have to have seen to watch the film. It was very well made, and very well executed by the actors. I know I say this quite a lot about film that I review, but this time, I one hundred and seventy eight percent mean it… This is defiantly one for the Christmas list. I might even treat myself to go and see it in the cinema again.

So grab your popcorn, you Maltesers, your ice-cream or your Coke, sit back, relax, and brace yourself for the biggest laugh of your lifetime. I’m not even kidding when I say your sides will be hurting by the end of it. Enjoy!
