Die Hard

Die Hard
  • 1988
  • US
  • 2h 11min
  • 18
  • Directed by: John McTiernan
  • Cast: Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman, Bonnie Bedelia, Alexander Godunov

Willis plays a cop who attends a tower block Christmas party with his estranged spouse. The building is raided by terrorists, so it's left to Willis to bump off the baddies and save the hostages while the police and FBI languish ineptly on the sidelines. Unbearably tense actioner that gets good mileage out of yawning lift-shafts and flying bullets, while Willis is convincing as an ordinary guy trying to cope with it all. Watch out for Brit Rickman as a villain with a sense of humour.

Buddy (Ferrell) is a big Elf who, though accepted in his Elvish community at the North Pole, manages to wreak havoc on a daily basis. Fed up and confused by his charge, Papa Elf (Bob Newhart) sends him to the US in search of his true identity. Hilarious and puerile Yuletide comedy.

Jay and Silent Bob Reboot
  • 2019
  • US
  • Directed by: Kevin Smith
  • Cast: Jason Mewes, Kevin Smith, Harley Quinn Smith, Shannon Elizabeth

Jay (Mewes) and Silent Bob (Smith) go to Hollywood–again–to forestall the reboot of the film version of the comic based on themselves, in this unashamed reboot of 2001's Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Expect extreme self-consciousness about the silliness of it all.

Royal Opera House: The Sleeping Beauty (Live Ballet)

A perennial delight and a much-loved classic, The Royal Ballet‘s ***The Sleeping Beauty*** combines the best of classical ballet, with all its charms and virtuosity, splendid music and talented dancers.

First choreographed to Tchaikovsky’s great musical score by Marius Petipa in Russia in 1890, ***The Sleeping Beauty ***has wonderful ensembles, solos including the Rose Adage as Princess Aurora meets her suitors, and of course the concluding celebratory dances for the happy union of prince and princess. The Royal Ballet’s landmark staging was revived for the Company’s 75th anniversary celebrations in 2006.

The designs by Oliver Messell, one of the greatest stage designers of the 20th century, were restored and updated for this production by Peter Farmer. The rich evocations of the baroque opulence of a royal court, the panoramic journey of the prince to the overgrown castle and the colourful characters in this famous fairytale make this *Sleeping Beauty *a spectacle like no other.
