Bank Holiday At Vue Cinema

With another bank holiday fast approaching it’s time to make plans for your long weekend. Having worked alongside Vue cinema for a number of years the team at Retail Assist have become regular movie goers, and for those of you at a loose end we have compiled a list of our current favourites:

Star Trek Into Darkness
Vue says: “Star Trek Into Darkness is the latest, darkest installment of one of the best-loved franchises ever and from the director of the new Star Wars movies. Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) leads his crew back to Earth only to find an insider has gone on a spree of destruction that has left his world in ruins. Now he has to enter the heart of darkness to put an end to the violence and get his revenge on the man who has ripped away everything he cherished. Star Trek Into Darkness is a sci-fi adventure with a very dark twist.”

Retail Assist says: “A girl on our sales team has seen this movie 4 times, with plans to go again and again before it stops showing. It is even better than the first, and well worth a watch.”

The Great Gatsby
Vue says: “The Great Gatsby follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super-rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.”

Retail Assist says: “Ignore what the critics are saying, this movie is amazing. Follows the story perfectly and uses all of the best quotes from the book. Take tissues. And pick and mix.”

Fast and Furious 6
Vue says: “Fast and Furious 6 is an adrenaline-soaked escapade of almost unparalleled explosiveness and action. Agent Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) has tracked down Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel), last seen stealing $100 million with his gang, now scattered across the globe, and is set to enlist him and his team of drivers on a mission that will wipe their criminal records clean and allow them to go and rejoin their families. But first there’s some globetrotting and a very important appointment in London. Fast and Furious 6 is a unashamed joyride that doesn’t take its foot off the accelerator for a second.”

Retail Assist says: “Very good film, even if it did make our team member scream in the cinema. Once she got past the embarrassment of that the film was great.”
