    In the opening frames of this murky megabudget monster mash, the famous Universal logo – a twinkling globe – revolves and dims, revealing the words ‘DARK UNIVERSE’ in glowering block capitals. We’re not messing about, the new emblem screams. This ...

    ‘Humanity is our virtue,’ says a character in ‘Ghost in the Shell’ — but you don’t get that feeling from the film, which is a slick, overly-digitised piece of weightless future schlock. It’s a remake of a 1995 Japanese anime, which itself was main...

    Chewing slippers? Slobbering on faces? Fetching sticks? Licking bums? This strange and sentimental movie sets out to uncover the true meaning of a dog’s life. Josh Gad (‘Beauty and the Beast’) voices Bailey, a golden retriever that, instead of pa...

    Before seeing ‘Wonder Woman’, I got a sinking feeling. It’s been more than a decade since a woman headlining a superhero film saved the world. I had visions of middle-aged male studio execs huddled together in a conference room Googling feminism a...

This is one of my local cinemas and I have come here a few times recently to watch the award season films purely out of convenience, not choice. It is clearly understaffed - long ticket/food queues and poorly cleaned toilets. The food and tickets are purchased from the same counter which increases wait times. Overall bad service and an average cinema experience.

Acton Vue tends to attract the sort who pay for films only to look at their phones continually, eat corpse logs in buns and dairy-slathered nachos, and generally lout about. The staff don't care. It's kind of echoey in there, like a giant hibernation cavern but for humans, hence the endless supplies of popcorn, pick 'n' mix and slushees needed to survive the Winter. 


Back in 'my day', by which I mean back in 1998 when I was four years old, my parents brought me here to see my first ever film. It was the Disney animation Mulan. Cute story, actually: My father told me we were 'going to the pictures', and for the entire film I sat there impatiently waiting to go and see 'the pictures'. Not until I demanded to be taken to 'the pictures' did I learn that the film was the pictures and that my father was using an outdated Irish colloquialism. Of course, it wasn't the Vue then, and as I recall, it had more of a touch of class about it. Pianist in the lobby, plush velvet carpets, that sort of thing. All gone now; the overheads were unsustainable once pirate DVDs and Torrenting came along. 


P.S: What exactly are the other reviews for this chain cinema multiplex going on about, I wonder? Who knows? Who cares? I do, a bit, actually. Am I being left out of some exclusive club, full of people in the know about 'Icons'. Who are these people? I don't know! Most of them were all written on the same day! Is this the internet equivalent of placing a coded message addressed to a Russian sleeper cell into an advert in Loot? Ahhhh!
