anthems are set to transform Vue Southport in a screening of The
Chemical Brothers’ Don’t Think at 10pm on Friday, 3 February 2012.
Don’t Think is a live recording of the Chemical Brothers’ concert in
Japan’s Glastonbury – Fujirock Festival, showcasing the dance duo’s

mid-noughties smash ‘Galvanise’ and beyond, which are all given a
The screening is filled with stimulating visuals including a racing
deconstructed horse and toy robots that punctuate the set list of
brutally modern electronic music brilliantly, pulling revellers and
cinema-goers alike into the music.
Don’t Think goes beyond the boundaries of the concert itself,
providing a unique perspective of being at the show by following
revellers as they make their way through the unconventional
environment of the festival. These trips are part of the visual of
the concert and are manipulated to meld with the musical experience.
Shot on location on Sunday, 31 July 2011, Don’t Think
is the first concert film to be mixed in Dolby Digital 7.1 Surround
Mark De Quervain, Sales and Marketing Director of Vue Entertainment,
comments:- "Don’t Think is an audio-visual feast that shows
how concerts can translate onto the big screen. The high intensity
music and visuals alone are impressive, but by adding the
cinematography and production to the filming, it has become a
version of the concert in its own right, providing a unique
experience of the concert to cinema goers that’s not to be missed."
Tickets to screenings of Don’t Think cost:- £12.50 and can be booked
"Mission Imposable 4, Ghost Protocol."
WELL it is not like the TV
show. The Mission Impossible series has been all over the place in
the cinemas and the 4th instalment is no exception. It is in our
view, fun to watch, but lacks any type of realism or substance that
makes you want to go back and see it again. In a year that is
offering many good films, this is one we would say, wait to it hits
the TV for. The story is as normal set around Ethan Hunt and his
team, who are in this film racing against time to track down a
dangerous terrorist named Hendricks. Hendricks has gained access to
Russian nuclear launch codes and in the process the IMF has been
framed. After a massive explosion causing severe destruction to the
Kremlin, the President to invokes Ghost Protocol and disavowed all
IMF members. With out help or backup in any form Ethan and his team
chase Hendricks to Dubai, and from there to Mumbai in an attempt to
stop nuclear war. With a few good jokes and some interesting action
sequences, will the IMF do it again? You mission should you accept
it is to find out! We gave this a rating of 3 out of 5.
