The Age of Shadows

The Age of Shadows
  • 2016
  • South Korea
  • 140 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jee-woon Kim
  • Written by: Jee-woon Kim
  • Cast: Byung-hun Lee, Yoo Gong, Kang-ho Song

Lee Jung-Chool (Song Kang-ho) is a Korean police officer serving as part of a Japanese mission to locate a consignment of explosives in 1920s Shanghai. A little research into the political tensions of the era is advisable, but it has a steely verve and baroque style that makes for compelling viewing.

Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast
  • 2017
  • US
  • 129 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Emma Thompson, Luke Evans, Ewan McGregor, Josh Gad

Belle (Watson) is forced to live with a Beast (Stevens) in this live-action retelling of the 1991 blockbuster. Watson is winsome but feisty, Evans as Gaston is splendid of voice and hilariously odious, McGregor brings much joie de vivre to ‘Be Our Guest’, and it’s an enchantingly realised delight.

Denial

Denial
  • 2016
  • UK/US
  • 109 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Mick Jackson
  • Cast: Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson, Timothy Spall

Deborah Lipstadt (Weisz) is a historian and lecturer who faces a libel suit after she derides controversial author David Irving (Spall) for his views on the Holocaust. This dramatisation of a 1996 court case has some compelling stretches, but Hare’s script lacks insight and it’s little more than a dry reconstruction of the trial.

Get Out

Get Out
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 104 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jordan Peele
  • Written by: Jordan Peele
  • Cast: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Bradley Whitford

Chris (Kaluuya) heads to upstate New York with his girlfriend Rose (Williams), for a dinner with her supposedly liberal parents (Whitford and Keener), only to find that things are very much other than they seem. Peele’s deep understanding of horror movies tropes combines with his own experiences as a black American, to make a sharp, taut and precisely crafted reflection on racial tensions in America.

Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island
  • 2017
  • US
  • 118 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jordan Vogt-Roberts
  • Cast: Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Brie Larson, Jing Tian, Toby Kebbell, John Ortiz, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Shea Whigham, Thomas Mann, Terry Notary, John C. Reilly

In 1973 a team of scientists goes to explore a recently discovered island with its own ecosystem, which turns out to include a 100-foot-tall ape which can punch helicopters out of the sky. Kong himself is impressive, if his fellow beasts are less so, and a great cast and able direction make this a monstrously entertaining actioner.

A four screen Odeon on Edinburgh's Lothian Road.

The Croma pizzeria now occupies the ground-floor lobby but the cinema is there, tucked away underground, although you may have to thread your way through crowded tables to get to it. The cinema contains wheelchair spaces and there's a lift to the basement. The popcorn is fresher than usual and beers as well as soft drinks are available.

Lothian buses 1, 10, 11, 15, 16, 24 and 34 run past the cinema from Princes Street on a regular basis. If you don't fancy Italian food, the Odeon is also handily close to some of Lothian Road's best food & drink joints: Illegal Jack's restaurant and The Hanging Bat pub are virtually opposite. For family groups there are branches of chain restaurants a little further down the hill.

Haymarket station is the closest rail access.
