    Fifty Shades Freed Movie Review

    I accidentally stumbled into the cinema and landed in the Fifty Shades Freed screening… honest! OK, it was slightly different to that. Catherine had booked tickets to see Black Panther and something didn’t log in correctly and we turned up at the cinema with no tickets booked. So Instead of heading home with now show, […]

  • The Greatest Showman / The Greatest Show?

    We were looking for a film to see in between Christmas and New Year. Something that was suitable for the full family. One that stood out as I’d seen the adverts on a bus was The Greatest Showman. A Story about P.T. Barnum and a circus? I’ll be honest I knew nothing about it and […]

  • Cars 3 the Movie

    Was there any need for the Cars 3 Movie?

    There was a theory I once read about and the theory went like this… If a headline is written as a question, then the answer is usually no! So, Was there any need for Cars 3? The Cars Story Pixar is very much committed to great story telling. Being able to connect to the characters […]

  • Beauty & The Beast

    Beauty & the Beast 2017 Movie

    Beauty & the Beast opened in cinema’s this weekend and we had to go and see it. If I’m totally honest I wanted to book tickets for opening night. However Imogen was going to a birthday party Saturday morning to go and see it. So instead of trumping someones party, we delayed it till Sunday night. […]

  • Miss Saigon 25th Anniversary Performance

    Miss Saigon 25th Anniversary Performance

    I love musicals… there I’ve said it! I’m one of the very few Newcastle based Dads that hates football and love musicals… and Disney. It’s something that I was brought up into. Every other year my parents would take me down to London to see a show. The first one I remember being Phantom of […]

  • FInding Dory

    Finding Dory

    Finding Nemo was a surprise hit for me, we went to the Odeon at the Gate to see it (Before Children aka B.C.). I had expect to enjoy the rich colours and animation, but ended up being sucked into the story and actually laughing out loud. The Scene where Dory talks whale was the scene […]

  • Now You See Me 2

    Now You See Me 2

    Back in 2013 Catherine and me went on a date night to the Odeon in the Metro Centre. Generally our experience of the cinema had been a shrug and “yeah, it was alright”. So to set this date night on the right track we upgraded our seats to the Gallery and trough-ed lots of sweets, […]

  • The Secret Life of Pets

    The Secret Life of Pets

    A little under two weeks after we waved goodbye to our dog sitting duties, Cat spotted that The Secret Life of Pets was released at Vue Cinema. The film had sort of skipped under the radar and didn’t seem to have that much hype about it. And sadly (in a way), when I realised it […]

  • The Jungle Book

    The Jungle Book

    Nearly 50 years ago, Walt Disney released the original animated version of the Jungle Book. Inspired by the book of the same name by Rudyard Kipling. The was also the last animated film that Walt Disney himself produced. Obviously I can’t remember the original release, but I can remember my Mum taking me to see a […]
