Go and see the film Up.

Especially if your knees are starting to creak in the morning, and if you're getting a bit of a grumpy old man or woman.

Take children if you can (even if they're in their twenties). In fact, take anyone.

And be prepared for a roller-coaster of emotions.... weep like in Bambi, scare like in 101 Dalmations, aw like in Dumbo.
And there's even a rare bird (great snipe?), a keen bird-lover and an evil bird-finder....we all know them don't we?
It gets an astonishing 98% rating on Rotten T0matoes.

And if you can go to see it at an old, underused, art deco cinema like the Empire at Sandwich, rather than at a popcorn-smelling multiplex, so much the better.

Saw UP courtesy of my daughter at the iMax 3D cinema near Waterloo station on Sunday. It is all you say it is and more. Fabulous.

I don't think there are any art deco cinemas left in the county now but there used to be a beauty in Blyth. In the summer I saw the Harry Potter movie in a tiny theatre in Oban. The venue was more interesting than the film.

David, how was the 3D? Needless to say, the Sandwich Empire did not have it although the film really didn't need anything more.

Nigel, sad losses.
