How I Live Now


For fans of the Tomorrow When series by John Marsden the new film How I Live Now based on the teenage fiction novel by Meg Rosoff is a must see. Set in a war torn future we hope never to have to live through, How I Live Now has many of the elements of suspense & the same panic driven terror of Children Of Men... not to mention a killer soundtrack by Jon Hopkins featuring Bat For Lashes & Daughter. Well worth seeing!

Catching Fire




Catching Fire second time round on the ExiMax was totally worth the wait... Sound is so important for the full experience, and while the midnight screening was fun the first cinema's sound system just didn't cut it. It's great to see Director Francis Lawrence is continuing to remain faithful to the books and by the sounds of things is planning to keep it that way, plus author Suzanne Collins is a co-producer, so that must help her keep the vision.
