  • Written by: James Cameron
  • Cast: Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, Michelle Rodriguez, Sigourney Weaver, Joel David Moore, Giovanni Ribisi

Set in 2154, Cameron's much-hyped Avatar focuses on a paraplegic marine named Jake Sully (Worthington), who arrives on the distant moon of Pandora with a mission to help displace its indigenous population. But, after winning their trust, Jake finds his allegiances gradually shifting. High on technical flair but short on storytelling ambition, this visually stunning sci-fi epic sadly remains deeply flawed.

With his partner Caprice (Léa Seydoux), Saul Tenser (Mortensen) - celebrity performance artist - publicly showcases the metamorphosis of his organs in avant-garde performances.

Spectre

Spectre
  • 2015
  • UK

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Sam Mendes
  • Cast: Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz, Léa Seydoux, Monica Bellucci, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, Rory Kinnear, Andrew Scott, Dave Bautista, Stephanie Sigman

James Bond (Craig) comes up against a global crime syndicate, while back at home, the 00 programme is under threat from reckless moderniser C (Scott). With its swagger, dry humour and frequent, well-executed action it's a solid crowdpleaser, but the story is predictable, the characterisation is thin and overall it lacks the emotional depth of Skyfall.

Kill Bill: Volume 1

Kill Bill: Volume 1
  • 2003
  • US
  • 1h 50min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Quentin Tarantino
  • Written by: Quentin Tarantino
  • Cast: Uma Thurman, Lucy Liu, Vivica A Fox, Daryl Hannah, David Carradine, Michael Madsen, Julie Dreyfus

A long time in the coming, Tarantino's two-part martial arts sword fighting epic gets off to a roaring rampaging start with Vol 1. Tarantino wears those influences on his sleeves: Chinese/Japanese martial arts flicks, blaxploitation and anime. Something of a departure from his previous films in that there is no smart era-defining dialogue here, just glorious, bloody, driven narrative. A must for anyone with a passion for the left field, low budget joys of people like Argento, Jodorowsky and any of the directors who came out of the Shaw Brothers studios in the 70s.

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.
