World War Z @The Lounge
24 Jun 2013 - Nic Ho Chee
So World War Z... a brief review; a handful of amazing set pieces but nothing much like the book. Unfortunately again spoilt by the trailer which gives away too much, its a nice interpretation of zombie infection, but the film has a weird ending and finishes up a bit mediocre with some outstanding scenes.
More impressed with The Lounge that we saw the film at. It was during the day so we were the only ones in the cinema, really nice setup with ace seats and someone to come and serve you food at your chair. I imagine the cost of running the place is quite high and the ticket price isn't so much more than normal so they must be relying on extra food sales and filling the small lounges on weekends. It's an interesting experiment for Odeon and it will be good to see if the value-added proposition makes them any profit in the long term.
