    While 'Finding Dory' is crammed with the kind of visual pleasures we’ve come to expect from Pixar, the story doesn’t always reach the heights of invention upon which the animation giant has built its reputation. The film lacks the psychological pr...

    A little orphan girl is snatched from her bed late at night by a big-hearted vegetarian giant and whisked off to an unwelcoming land of over-sized cannibals in Roald Dahl's much-cherished 1982 book 'The BFG'. For this movie version, aimed squarely...

    We’re five movies in, and the ‘Ice Age’ series has jumped the sloth: ‘Collision Course’ feels like it was scripted on the back of a beer mat and animated by the folks behind those straight-to-DVD Barbie movies. It’s hard to shake the suspicion tha...

    This high-energy, big-budget new spin on the old Tarzan story is fun to watch if you take it as throwaway kitsch. It imagines Viscount Greystoke (Alexander Skarsgård), best known as chest-beater Tarzan, all grown-up and civilised after a childhood...

    Too much ambition can be a dangerous thing. The previous ‘Star Trek’ movie, 2013’s ‘Into Darkness’, was packed with it: a sprawling epic full of new worlds, violent consequences and hefty emotional moments. It was later – just a little unfairly – ...

    The hilarious start of this cartoon from the ‘Despicable Me’ team feels lifted from one of those pets-do-the-funniest-things montages on YouTube. Front-loading the best bits, ‘The Secret Life of Pets’ begins by imagining what the animals in a New ...

    ‘Not as bad as it should’ve been’. That’s not exactly overwhelming praise, but it’s about all this shameless, occasionally entertaining cash-in deserves. Arriving a good couple of years after the smartphone game ‘Angry Birds’ hit peak addiction, t...

    Joanna Lumley is the best thing about this funny but disappointingly not hilarious ‘Ab Fab’ comeback. So thank the fashion gods for the injections of Botox and foetus blood and the truckloads of Stoli-Bolli cocktails keeping Patsy permanently pick...

    The all-female reboot of ‘Ghostbusters’ is here – pumped-up, subversive and often very funny. But before any fanboys make the leap from viciously criticising the trailer to viciously criticising the movie itself, let’s get a reality check on the 1...

Normally I can rely on this branch to be quiet, there to be a choice to sit anywhere, no queues and friendly service however not this Saturday!

Online 10 minutes before the film it said there were only 5 people who had booked to see Hateful 8. When I arrived there was quite a queue and once I got to the front was told it was going to be rammed and I might not get to sit next to my bf....
I think the lady must have been new/ stressed as she was flapping and turned off her cash register by mistake. She apologised plenty so I felt bad for her but after being told seating was tight I was getting a bit annoyed. 
Luckily I went in and got reasonable seats on the side near the back.... Phew! 
I think it was so busy as a lot of cinemas aren't showing it (it's well worth it by the way!) 
What really annoyed me is people coming in 30 minutes late and walking in front of the screen - not Odeon's fault though.
They were showing it in their teeny tiny screen which was a shame and for £12 each outside of the centre of London it was a bit steep! Having said that seats were comfy, there was a good view of the screen and the place was clean and tidy.

The Odeon was renovated a few years ago to incorporate The Lounge and with it came bigger, more comfortable seats and a new Costa coffee machine. Though the coffee machine causes delays and the staff can be less than helpful at times, it's a pretty decent cinema-going experience on the whole. The automated ticket machines mean you can get there just minutes before a show and pretty much guarantee that you'll have time to buy your tickets (as long as it's not a sell out) so as I live really close, I can pretty much wait until the listed time before setting out.


The Lounge is a novel experience. It makes you feel a bit like a kid again - especially if you order Shirley Temples.
