From AMC to Odeon: New Name, Same Old Story.

(Yes, I know that AMC Theatres own Odeon.) Earlier in the year, I found out that the Odeon in Manchester's Printworks was to transition to a Vue cinema, and said Odeon would transfer to where Manchester's AMC cinema is situated (Great Northern Warehouse).

Released in 1981 and directed by Bruce Malmuth, Nighthawks, essentially, is a hidden gem from the days of Sylvester Stallone’s career between Rocky II and First Blood (1979-1982). Primarily set and filmed in contemporary New York, Nighthawks presents forms of terrorism, realistic action and revenge – the terrorist being Rutger Hauer’s “Wulfgar” – the third villain in this series of Obscure Movie Villains....

From ReadFilm: “Review: ‘Arrival’ (2016)”

Amy Adams – the best actress in contemporary American cinema – delivers an out-of-this-world performance in 2016’s best science-fiction movie. If a certain election result has ruined your week, then you can quickly remove the despair by watching Arrival. In 2014 on Instagram, I labeled Prisoners as “Quite possibly the best mainstream thriller within the last five years.” Prisoners‘ director, Denis Villeneuve, has... Continue Reading →
