Luxury Flicks

Been waiting in anticipation to watch X-Men Origins: Wolverine and got to see it the other style!

Boom booked some Gold Class seats, which are more expensive than 'normal’ tickets, but you pay for a different kind of cinema experience.

You get to sit in button-controlled reclining leather seats , very comfortable and they can be adjusted to an almost lying down position! Waiter/waitress service is available from your chair whilst watching the film at the press of a button.

Since everyone has paid premium price for this, you don't get people in there who aren't interested in the film, so no mobile phones going off, no kids.

The film itself I really enjoyed, as I'm a big fan of the X-Men comics and movies, plus Hugh Jackman is one of the few eye-candy actors around and he's looking very buff and mean here!

Not a lot of plot really Wolverine/Logan's history and background but some interesting characters and great special effects, some deviation from the comics around some of the characters and their abilities, including Sabretooth and Deadpool. A satisfactory ending too so I was happy.

Lots of films coming up in the next month or so but not all will be gold class!


  1. I miss Bangkok. The "Gold Class" there is the same price as a standard ticket here. As is the IMAX. And with Spidey 4 rumoured to be in IMAX 3D... I know where I want to be when it comes out.

  2. I really want to see this, but I just know I will not get around to it and will end up waiting for the DVD.......
