    Katsuhiro Otomo’s 1988 Manga classic resurfaced in the headlines recently with talk of a western live-action remake. Some were rankled by the mooted casting option (Robert Pattinson, Justin Timberlake…), feeling they missed the point of a quinte...

    Not nearly as subversive or as rude as Wedding Crashers this cringe-comedy takes the earlier movie’s best joke – Isla Fisher as a secretly wild party girl – and puts it front and centre with a film-stealing female double act. When brothers Mike (A...

    What to watch this summer if you’re too scared to make it past episode two of ‘Stranger Things’? The answer is Disney’s ‘Pete’s Dragon’, about an orphaned boy who lives in the forest with his pet dragon (it’s remake of a 1977 film). With ‘Pete’s D...

    The big fear about the punky, not-for-kids comic-book movie Suicide Squad was that it might be too try-hard: Hollywood awkwardly slumming it with the alt crowd. But this loony wise-cracking DC Comics story, directed with anti-glossy grit by David ...

    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 follow-up to Tim Burton’s 2010 ‘Alice in Wonderland’ brings back most of the same team (though Burton has stepped back to be a producer), and the same high-energy and bucketful of 3D digital effects approach. Mia Wasikowska returns as the emi...

Islington has a lot going for it in terms of pubs and restaurants and this compliments it all! The vue cinema is spacious, has lots of screenings of many diverse films (even some NT recordings) and I’ve always found it to be clean too. They have special discount days too which is very handy on a tight month and is close to a sainsbury’s, waitrose and M&S should you not want to spend a fortune on popcorn.

For one of the chain cinemas, this Vue does the job well! The Islington branch is incredibly central yet acts as a bit of an oasis to all of the shops and noise around. The staff seem very friendly and there's lots of toilets, which is always a good thing! Also one time an anonymous staff member gave us extra nacho cheese which was a game-changer!

I came in a perfect mood ready to watch a good movie and the black lady working behind the counter had such a attitude it just ruined everything so I went to find the manager and he could care less! Been coming here for years sadly I don't want to come anymore with this kind of customer service.
