Arthur Christmas

Arthur Christmas
  • 2011
  • UK / US

  • U
  • Directed by: Sarah Smith
  • Written by: Peter Baynham, Sarah Smith
  • Cast: James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie, Bill Nighy, Jim Broadbent, Imelda Staunton, Ashley Jensen, Ramona Marquez

Arthur Christmas (McAvoy) is the overlooked star of the Santa team, but when it looks like a small girl's present may not get delivered, he enlists the help of his curmudgeonly grandfather (Nighy). With characters boringly reflecting different degrees of niceness, this contrived family feud lacks the wit that made Aardman's name.

  • 2012

  • Directed by: Bernard Rose
  • Written by: Leo Tolstoy, Matthew Jacobs
  • Cast: Danny Huston, Matthew Jacobs

In an adaptation of Tolstoy’s short story Master and Man, supercilious property developer Basil (Huston) and hired chauffeur Nick (Jacobs) get lost in snowy Colorado. Rose’s fourth Tolstoy adaptation and diminishing returns have set in; Jacobs’ mediocre screenplay doesn’t help. Disappointing.

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.

  • 2010
  • UK / US
  • 2h 26min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: David Yates
  • Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson

The seventh installment of the wildly popular wizard franchise is an atmospheric but emotionally hollow and rather rushed take on Rowling's original, with a strong performance from ever-dependable Grint but little else to recommend it other than as an appetiser for next summer's grand finale.

Small-town boy Stewart runs into financial difficulties and is on the brink of suicide when an elderly angel descends to earth to show him all the good his life has done for those around him. Archetypal Capra sentimentality with a superbly detailed fantasy framework and one of Stewart's most lovable performances. One to warm even the most glacial heart.

Absolutely gobsmacking science fiction thriller boasting cutting edge special effects, rocking action sequences, a smart story and an immensely entertaining cartoon sensibility (the film was storyboarded by comic artist Geoff Darrow). In the future day-to-day life is merely a scam, a matrix camouflaging reality - a post-apocalyptic nightmare world in which humankind are a power source for domineering super-computers. Only Reeves' cyber hero, Neo, and a gang of hacker pirates stand between the evil technology and their race's extinction.

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.
