Entebbe

Entebbe
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • 1h 46min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: José Padilha
  • Cast: Rosamund Pike, Daniel Brühl, Eddie Marsan

The true story of Operation Entebbe, in which Israeli commandos rescued hostages who had been kidnapped by pro-Palestinian terrorists and held in a Ugandan airport. Pike as a German revolutionary is intriguing and although there are some missteps, it’s an urgent and vibrant take on the incident.

The First Purge

The First Purge
  • 2018
  • USA
  • 1h 37min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Gerard McMurray
  • Cast: Marisa Tomei, Melonie Diaz, Y'lan Noe

No-nonsense, incendiary B-movie prequel to the franchise, in which the government tries out the whole ‘purge’ idea for the first time. Noel and Scott Davis are fine leads, and it makes great use of horror tropes and characters to bust racist myths. Unsubtle, but charged and effective.

Hotel Artemis

Hotel Artemis
  • 2018
  • UK
  • Directed by: Drew Pearce
  • Cast: Jodie Foster, Sofia Boutella, Dave Bautista

Future-set sci-fi following a nurse (Foster) who runs an emergency room for criminals only in a riot-torn Los Angeles. Despite some clunky dialogue here and there, this stylish noir is befitting of Foster's manifold talents.

The Incredibles 2

The Incredibles 2
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 5min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Brad Bird
  • Cast: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, Bob Odenkirk

In this sequel to the 2004 original, Supers are still forbidden but Elastigirl (Hunter) gets to go up against a supervillain while husband Bob (Nelson) minds the kids. It looks great and the voice cast is excellent, but it feels dated and the set-pieces become tiring.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: JA Bayona
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, B. D. Wong, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall

Raptor wrangler Owen (Pratt) and his ex, Claire (Howard) return to Isla Nublar to rescue the dinosaurs from an impending volcanic eruption. Lots of ideas and some earnest lessons about conservation can’t hide that the franchise is running out of oomph, but it’s still fun.

  • Cast: Christine Baranski, Jessica Keenan Wynn, Julie Walters, Alexa Davies, Pierce Brosnan, Jeremy Irvine, Colin Firth, Hugh Skinner, Stellan Skarsgård, Josh Dylan, Cher, Dominic Cooper, Andy García

Sequel to the feel-good ABBA musical Mamma Mia! Despite its absurdities and shoe-horning of ABBA songs, at its heart is a touching mother-daughter love story and an irresistible esprit de corps.

Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Mission: Impossible - Fallout
  • 2018
  • US
  • Directed by: Christopher McQuarrie
  • Cast: Rebecca Ferguson, Henry Cavill, Tom Cruise

The sixth entry in the film series based on the 60s TV show is the first to be directed by a returning director (Christopher McQuarrie). Insane stunts from Tom Cruise guaranteed.

Ocean's 8

Ocean's 8
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 50min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Gary Ross
  • Cast: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter

Debbie Ocean (Bullock) sets in motion a plan to swipe a precious diamond necklace, and with pal Lou (Blanchett) puts together a gang of female crooks. The performances are great fun but Ross’s anonymous direction doesn’t add much, and it’s a bit let down by a needless subplot and unnecessary cameos.

Patrick

Patrick
  • 2018
  • UK

  • PG
  • Directed by: Mandie Fletcher
  • Cast: Beattie Edmondson, Ed Skrein, Jennifer Saunders

Sarah (Edmondson) inherits a pug, Patrick, from her grandmother, and the trouble-making little scamp turns her life upside down. How much you enjoy it is directly proportional to your tolerance of canine reaction shots, but it’s so relentlessly light and breezy that it wins you over even if if it never actually makes you laugh.

Sherlock Gnomes

Sherlock Gnomes
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • PG
  • Directed by: John Stevenson
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp, Michael Caine

When the gnomes of London go missing, the titular detective (Depp) and his long-suffering sidekick (Ejiofor) go looking for them. Despite vivid animation and a fine voice cast, there’s just not enough story to fuel this hardly-necessary sequel to the lacklustre 2011 original.

Skyscraper

Skyscraper
  • 2018
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Rawson Marshall Thurber
  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Pablo Schreiber, Neve Campbell

Will (Johnson) is an FBI veteran who lost a leg, married his nurse (Campbell) and is a safety assessor for the tallest building in the world—which is then attacked by terrorists. With inane dialogue, substandard Euro-villains and preposterous set-pieces, it takes on two classic predecessors (Die Hard and The Towering Inferno) and loses.

  • UK
  • 1h 25min
  • U
  • Directed by: David Stoten
  • Cast: Teresa Gallagher, John Hasler, Peter Andre, Keith Wickham, Rob Rackstraw, Matt Wilkinson, Nigel Pilkington, Christopher Ragland

Thomas the Tank Engine (voiced by Hasler) heads on a global adventure, encouraged by a free-spirited race car (Andre) and a potential romance with engine Nia (Grundy). A bland, impersonal plot will fail to entertain anyone except the tiniest of tots.

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.
