Me and my sisters ended up arriving early which sucked. We ended up getting ice-cream and hanging around the seating area while we waited to get and avoid the  adverts.

When we came it we could not see the labelled for the rows once seated we saw others who asked other what row they were on so they could figure out where to sit.

 

The cinema was packed.

 

I really like the politics , propaganda and passion  of Mokingjay but my Sisters thought it was boring and nothing happened.

71 Exodus: Gods And Kings

Thursday 1st January at 13:00 , Sky Superscreen    Superscreen , Row N Seat 21   The O2

The thing I dislike about the Superscreen is the sound. It always echoes.

 

I had hopped that they would have changed up the story more. I really loved Noah and how that was adapted.

 

The story of Exodus does not make sense to me.

I had planned to watch this yesterday but I missed the first screening and If I have the option I Try to avoid later screenings.

I tried to use the QR code on my phone to collect the ticket  but the ATM did not accept it.

There was no one to check my ticket on the second floor again. This happens a lot during off peak time.  I did see to two at least two staff members on the first level.

I was glad that I missed the ads.  It seemed for a while there that I have been early and had to wait 20 to 30mins for the movie to start.

The Screen was not full but had a decent amount. I think a person in front had never seen Annie because she seemed surprised at some of the plot points.

All the reviews I watched said this movie was one of the worst but as a soon as there is a musical number in anything I can forgive it anything.

 

I do like a re-telling.I am always interested to see how things are adapted. Sure it was a bit too “it’s a movie”.  I liked some of the changes in the songs even though I adorn the original music.  I wanted to hear how the would do “We got Annie” but they did not use that song.  I love the actress who played Annie she was cool.

The movie was entertain enough it would have been better of the conclusion of the Smug storyline end in the previous movie.  It did make me want to watch LotR when I never really wanted again before.

I got two tickets for this it was free and my mum who has an unlim card might have wanted to go also I would have space next to me.

 

I bought the ticket way in advance. I feared that it would have sold out how ever it made it restricted me when getting other tickets.

 

The theatre was packed.

I had never seen Blade Runner I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.

The visuals were great. I love the “culture” of the film.   The world was really interesting .

It was fine as a film. A lovely sci-fi movie.

Great visuals but I am not sure I followed the narrative.   I was trying to figure out what was going on sometimes.

66. 2001: A Space Odyssey

Thursday 4th December 2014 –  20:15  – Screen 2 Row E Seat 15 – West India Quay

2001_A_Space_Odyssey-1-

After watching Interstellar I have been wanting to see 2001. I kept hearing that 2001 was a huge influence on Interstellar . I thought it would make a great Double Bill.    As soon as I found out it was on I booked it.

This however made it difficult when “Blade Runner” was out soon after.  I can only book two tickets at one time. So I had to wait till it came closer to the time to book the other ticket since I wanted to watch others in between.  I was not sure about the limit at first I tried to contact CIneworld but I got no reply. If I had some feedback for Cineworld I would add these find of screens as an “even” like Live showing  or other types that are except from the 2 booking rule.

I ended up arriving pretty early. I was not sure  how many adverts there would be or if it would just start at the advertised time. Man I wish I had come later.  There was not music playing and I felt quite awkward.

The numbers for the seats are on the arm rest so you have two numbers on each seat  I was confused and sat one seat further then I should.  I was so unsure I doubled check after a while and moved. However this was after some guys sat next to me . They had to move later when other people arrived . Sorry.

When the notice for trailer saying that ” the trailers following would have the same certificate as the movie”  no trailer came after. 2001 is a U and I guess there are no more U movies coming out.

The music was loud which was amazing.  I have seen most of 2001 before but never all the way through. I had seen the start , many of the major section, even an analysis of the movie but never the whole thing.

I won’t lie it was a difficult keeping my eyes open at all the  talking scenes . MY eyeball were drying out. Fortunately a surprise (to me) Interval  came on so I rushed to the toilet and put some eyedrops in. This was a great opportunity to wake up and  stand up,  once again the seats gave me bum ache.

It was a great experience I am glad I got to see  it on the big screen .  I loved the scale and when there was music it was amazing.   What I found interesting was the movie liked to show how this “future world ” worked.  I know this has other messages about the state of mans revolutions “right now” in space  but it was like when movies  want o show how the future might be and impress us with its advances.
