  • 2019

  • 2h 2min

  • Directed by: James Gray
  • Cast: Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Liv Tyler, Donald Sutherland

In the near future, Roy McBride (Pitt) is an astronaut searching for his father Clifford (Jones), himself a pioneering space explorer. But Roy’s classified mission turns deadly. Gray’s stellar third film is a huge step up, mixing horror and action with deeper themes and anchored by a dazzling turn from Pitt, who has never been better.

Aladdin

Aladdin
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Guy Ritchie
  • Cast: Will Smith, Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott, Marwan Kenzari, Navid Negahban, Nasim Pedrad, Numan Acar, Billy Magnussen, Alan Tudyk, Frank Welker

Disney’s live-action version of 1992’s Aladdin features a fun, fast-talking and scene-stealing Smith and terrific work from Massoud and Scott as Aladdin and Jasmine, but against that there’s some weird VFX, odd directorial choices and a well-intentioned but clunky female empowerment number. Enjoyable and entertaining nevertheless.

  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 36min
  • U
  • Directed by: Thurop Van Orman
  • Cast: Dove Cameron, Awkwafina, Peter Dinklage

When Eagle Island villain Zeta (Jones) starts lobbing ice bombs at Piggy Island, ruler Leonard (Hader) bonds with angry birds (Sudeikis, McBride, Gad) to try and clip her wings. Half-knowing and half-derivative, it’s cheerful but gaudy and relentless and the story isn’t strong enough to support all the half-baked set pieces.

  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 33min
  • Directed by: Todd Douglas Miller

Documentary marking the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing with never-before-seen footage and newly discovered audio recordings. The rockets are spankingly new and exciting, and it’s a piece of gleaming history showing the youth, hope and enthusiasm of the time.

  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 42min

  • Directed by: James Bobin
  • Cast: Isabela Moner, Eugenio Derbez, Michael Peña, Eva Longoria, Danny Trejo

Dora (Moner) is a teenager who spent her childhood exploring the jungle with her parents (Longoria and Peña), but when her parents go missing, Dora leaves high school to find them. A sweet Spy Kids-style adventure that never serves up anything too scary, complex or upsetting for young viewers; Moner gives a warm and delightful performance and is the main reason to watch.

Fast & Furious presents: Hobbs & Shaw

Hobbs and Shaw
  • 2019

  • 2h 16min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: David Leitch
  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Idris Elba, Vanessa Kirby, Roman Reigns, Eiza Gonzalez, Eddie Marsan, Cliff Curtis, Helen Mirren

Hobbs (Johnson) and Shaw (Statham) reluctantly team up to stop nasty Brixton (Elba) from doing bad things. It should have been a hoot, but while the two leads have proven comedy chops, a sketchy script doesn’t give them enough to do and there’s a general lack of imagination. The tank is half empty on this one.

Fight Club
  • 1999
  • US
  • 2h 15min
  • 18
  • Directed by: David Fincher
  • Cast: Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, Helena Bonham Carter

Masculinity is in a mess and consumerism is to blame. Men have become docile spectators of life according to Fight Club, Fincher's controversial adaptation of Chuck Palahniuk's novel. In reckless response to this late 20th century malaise, Norton's compliant spectator teams up with Pitt's mischievous Tyler Durden to form an arena for men to beat each other to a pulp and thus reconnect with the world. It's hit and miss, but enough of the punches connect.

Max (Tremblay), Lucas (Williams) and Thor (Noon) are 11-year-old best friends who, in the course of learning how to kiss, have a day-long adventure involving a stolen drone, drugs and sex toys. Silly, rude and often hilarious comedy with terrific performances from the boys.

Horrible Histories: The Movie – Rotten Romans

Horrible Histories: The Movie – Rotten Romans
  • 2019
  • UK
  • 1h 32min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Dominic Brigstocke
  • Cast: Sebastian Croft, Emilia Jones, Nick Frost, Kim Cattrall, Warwick Davis, Craig Roberts, Derek Jacobi, Rupert Graves, Kate Nash

A story of Celtic tribes, led by queen Boudicca (Nash), uniting against their Roman overlords. The trademark puerile humour and comedy songs are all there, and it’s jam-packed with appearances from much-loved comedians; if its overriding silliness doesn’t measure up to Life of Brian or Blackadder, it has ramshackle charm.

  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 47min
  • Directed by: Lorene Scafaria
  • Cast: Constance Wu, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Lizzo, Cardi B

Destiny (Wu) and Ramona (Lopez) are strippers who, with their friends, devise a way of getting more cash out of their clients. Wu gives a sophisticated performance and her dynamic with Lopez pops with convincing intensity, making for a raucous crime story that’s by turns gorgeous, funny and surprisingly moving.

  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 50min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Andy Muschietti
  • Cast: James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Skarsgård, Bill Hader

Twenty-seven years after the events of the first film, the town experiences a series of attacks, causing the Losers to reunite. Darker-toned than the first one, it has an impactful story about friendship and buried secrets and if the repetitive CGI lose their impact, there are still surprises in store.

  • Directed by: Jon Favreau
  • Cast: Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Alfre Woodard, Billy Eichner, John Kani, John Oliver, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, James Earl Jones

The photorealistic version of the beloved Disney story has memorable visuals, impressive set-pieces and adorable yet credible animals, but precisely because they’re so realistic, it’s weird when they speak and even stranger when they sing. All the star voices in the world don’t count when you can’t simulate heart and soul.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
  • 2019
  • US / UK
  • 2h 45min
  • Directed by: Quentin Tarantino
  • Cast: James Marsden, Margot Robbie, Leonardo DiCaprio

Past-his-peak actor Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his stuntman and buddy Cliff Booth (Pitt) are living in Hollywood in 1969; then Sharon Tate (Robbie) and her husband Roman Polanski move in next door. Compelling and provocative, but uneven; for all the fine performances, black comedy and savage violence, Tarantino may have bitten off more than he can chew.

Rocketman

Rocketman
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 2h 1min
  • Directed by: Dexter Fletcher
  • Cast: Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, Bryce Dallas Howard

This Elton John biopic, exec-produced by its subject, could have been a vanity project, but it’s a fun and cute fantasy musical; Egerton as John as exuberant and sympathetic, and the framing device is sensible. Hardly revelatory, but Fletcher does a good job and sprinkles some inventiveness. Classic songbook helps.

  • Cast: Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, J. B. Smoove, Jacob Batalon, Martin Starr, Marisa Tomei, Jake Gyllenhaal

After the events of Endgame, Peter Parker (Holland) is dealing with the loss of his mentor when he and his schoolmates find themselves fighting the Elementals. An enjoyable mix of storming special effects and road trip silliness which manages to work in the believable development in the relationship between Peter and MJ (Zendaya). It returns the fun to the Marvel canon.

Woody (Tom Hanks) joins new owner Bonnie at kindergarten where he finds a new purpose in protecting her improvised toy Forky (Hale). Pixar manages to further the story with fine new characters and a satisfyingly teary conclusion, for a fine last chapter in the saga.

Gateshead's Metrocentre is the largest shopping centre in the UK, with a mind-bending two million square feet of retail floor area, so no wonder its Odeon is correspondingly giant-sized, with 17 screens including an IMAX. Each screen has wheelchair spaces and an infrared sound system is in place for customers with hearing difficulties. All screens also offer audio description and subtitling.

The cinema offers over 18s the Gallery, a licensed bar with unlimited snacks and soft drinks, and it's big enough to have its own cafe and Ambar bar and lounge; drinks purchased in Ambar can be taken into the auditorium. There are regular film quiz nights on Thursday evenings from 8pm, and both the cafe and bar have free wi-fi.

Metrocentre itself is big enough to have its own chapel, but with over 340 stores and food and drink outlets ranging from Pizza Hut to a cocktail bar, there are plenty of places to relax. As far as getting there is concerned, the centre has not only its own bus station (with a shuttle bus service taking 15 minutes from the centre of Newcastle) but its own train station. There is ample parking.
