  • 95 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Jorge R Gutierrez
  • Cast: Zoe Saldana, Channing Tatum, Diego Luna, Ron Perlman

Manolo (Luna) and best friend Joaquin (Tatum) are both in love with feisty Maria (Saldana), but it all goes El Sur when squabbling gods La Muerte (del Castillo) and Xibalba (Perlman) make a wager over who'll win her. Lively, colourful animation exploring dark themes, with great gags, superb voice work, and a delightful soundtrack.

Frozen
  • 4 stars
  • 2013
  • US
  • 108 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chris Buck
  • Cast: Voices of Kristen Bell, Josh Gad, Idina Menzel

Princess Anna (Bell) is disturbed to find that her sister Elsa (Menzel) can create ice and snow, but when Elsa goes into exile the kingdom freezes, and Anna and friends must find her. With no celebrity voice-overs or pop culture gags, just a venerable story, good songs and classic characters, it's an old-fashioned delight.

Gone Girl
  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 145 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: David Fincher
  • Cast: Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike

Nick (Affleck) comes home on his fifth wedding anniversary to find his wife Amy (Pike) gone, and a series of revelations cast him in the worst possible light. Fincher directs with cool proficiency and a sense of brutal fun; Affleck is perfect, and Pike gives a bravura, breakout performance.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1
  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 125 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Francis Lawrence
  • Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Julianne Moore

Carving the final book in the Hunger Games series into two movies pays off, giving rhythm to a story that might otherwise have felt rushed. Action and politics are confidently balanced, Sutherland is deliciously vile as ever, Hutcherson is finally given something interesting to do and while Lawrence is rightly the star, the older actors are a pleasure.

The Imitation Game

The Imitation Game
  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • UK/USA
  • 113 min
  • Directed by: Morten Tyldum
  • Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode

Historical drama about Alan Turing (Cumberbatch), father of modern computer science; how he and a team of codebreakers figured out how to beat the German Enigma machine during WWII, and his tragically early death. Triumphant slice of British heritage drama, with great emotional force and a touching performance from Cumberbatch.

Interstellar

Interstellar
  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US/UK
  • 169 min
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Jessica Chastain, Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway

Cooper (McConaughey) is a pilot-turned-farmer who's recruited for an intergalactic mission to find humanity a new home. Despite awe and nail-biting tension, there's too much clunky exposition and cinematic clichés, and although Nolan's intentions to make a singular and cerebral film are admirable, it all gets a bit silly.

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted
  • 4 stars
  • 2012
  • US
  • 93 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Eric Darnell
  • Written by: Eric Darnell, Noah Baumbach
  • Cast: Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer

Alex (Stiller), Marty (Rock), Melman (Schwimmer) and Gloria (Pinkett Smith) are pining for New York so they escape across Europe, only to find animal-hating Captain DuBois (McDormand) on their tails. Easily the best family film of 2012 so far, it’s a superb return to form after the lacklustre Madagascar 2: Escape 2 Africa.

Mr Turner

Mr Turner
  • 5 stars
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 150 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Mike Leigh
  • Cast: Timothy Spall, Paul Jesson, Dorothy Atkinson

Portrait of the last 25 years of the life of painter Joseph Mallord William Turner (Spall). A work of great beauty, wit and poignancy, presenting the artist as unapologetically gruff but sympathetic and spectacularly eccentric. Leigh's latest demonstrates a command of his craft to rival that of his subject.

Nativity 3: Dude, Where's My Donkey?!

Nativity 3: Dude, Where's My Donkey?!
  • 2 stars
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 109 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Debbie Isitt
  • Written by: Debbie Isitt
  • Cast: Adam Garcia, Catherine Tate, Celia Imrie

The third film in the series sees the kids from St Bernardette's helping teacher Mr Shepherd (Clunes) recover from a donkey-inflicted bout of amnesia. The Christmas story is crossed with the formulaic dance movie, with results that may prove testing to short attention spans. Unnecessarily long and annoyingly repetitive.

  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 95 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw (voice), Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins

The story of an illegal immigrant from Peru and his efforts to be integrated into British society. He's a bear, by the way. Whishaw imbues the CGI Paddington with immense charm, the rest of the cast are excellent and the exuberant direction and smart, knowing script make for a genuine delight.

The Odeon Maidenhead opened in 2000 as a UCI cinema, but when UCI's European operations were taken over in 2004 it was absorbed into the Odeon empire. It's now one of the bigger Odeons in the UK, with 10 wheelchair-friendly screens and a licensed Gallery for over 18s, serving drinks from the bar and unlimited snacks and soft drinks. All screens have infrared systems for the hard-of-hearing and screen 4 has digital subtitling for selected screenings.

The cinema is close to Maidenhead town centre, convenient for bars and restaurants. The nearest bus stops (routes 8, 55, 59, 75, 76) are on Frascati Way, and Maidenhead station is approximately six minutes away on foot.
