I do not like 3D . I did not plan to watch any 3D now that I have the option to watch it “for free”  I mainly did not like it because I have t pay extra for no reason. .  However because the person I was with wanted that specific time  and screen I went with that.  I kinda don’t like the  Sky Superscreen because if the crappy echo sound.

 

I felt really weird watching it. I did not feel immersed.  I was feeling odd that day ,maybe because my college at work was murdered but now I blame 3D.

I may need to go again and re-watch it if I am in the mood.

1 Mr. Holmes

Friday 19th June at 17:40 – Screen 10 Row G Seat 10 – The O2

I got a scoop of  Jamocha almond fudge at Bakin Robins.  . I used my Black Card was unsure if it would work because if the possible transition.   Cost me £ 1.99. I went upstairs and ate it before I got into the screen.  The movie start time was at 17:40 but ate the ice cream  waited till 17:50 before I got it.   The flavour did not seem to be as good as last time.  There was a person at the top if the escalators checking tickets instead of the “doors” , so I did not have my card ready.

The movie was in screen 10 and when I went to look for by Row I could not see the letters, So I went to the other side where I was surprised to see the letters were lit up. I saw a few others struggle. I like that they are not varying the Cineworld adverts now.

I really liked the movie. I felt strange, I felt like I had watched this story before.  ( I think I might have heard that synopsis when the novel came out)  I found it interesting that there was movie version of Holmes in the movie itself.   McKellen looked so frail that I actually kept believing he was that old and that fragile even when I saw the sharp Mr Holmes in flashback. It was so cool seeing Holmes in his “prime”

 

The boy Roger  was an amazing performance also.   He didn’t do the child performer thing. If he were playing an older guy I would have believed that.

 

I loved the construction of the movie.  Like a good detective story all the pieces were in place to create to create the intricate puzzle.  A puzzle I did not know we were doing.   I suppose I should expected that when you have the ultimate detective.

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.

70 Annie

Monday 29 December 2014 11:50am – Screen 9 Row H Seat 11 – The O2

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.

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.
