[Other] Roundup of X-Men Dark Phoenix Movie Event

Hi Guys,

As you may or may not know I thankfully got the time to head down to London for the showing of X-Men dark phoenix at 20th century Fox at Soho Square.

We were greeted in the lobby by other Mi fans who were lucky enough to secure their place at the event that was promoted on the mi community and via Xiaomi UK social media accounts.

At the event, we were offered some wines and nibbles while we waited and caught up with some of the regular suspects at these London events.

     


As usual, our fine hosts from Xiaomi UK Alessandro and Giang welcomed us for coming to the event and shared their thanks to 20th century Fox for allowing us this opportunity.

And once I had completed quenching my thirst on one of the bottles of prosecco we headed into the cosy and comfortable mini cinema.
So as we all took our seats Alessandro had a few more words to say and then we buckled up to watch the movie.

     

Whilst watching the movie in this cosy screening room I noticed that the sound system was there amazing as well as the image quality of the projector being used.

Now down to the important thing. Was the movie any good?

I had seen mixed reviews about the movie before attending the event, but I can say I enjoyed this charter of the X-Men Origins series the must so far. The Jade Gray story has then always an interest for must X-Men fans and I'm glad it didn't disappoint.

The only thing that really takes away from the story is the timeline from all different episodes of X-Men movies.
I can't say to much without spoiling the movie because I'm not that kind of guy...

I'll just say this...

Think of these X-Men movies like they all have alternative realities that clash sometimes and you'll be ok if you overlook that.
But if you have OCD as a film critic, then sit this one out!

     


Once the event came to an end, some of us hang about to have a chat and put some faces to names from the Mi Community.
Then I dragged some people to the Irish pub around the corner.

Overall this was a great event and was very grateful for the opportunity to go into 20th Century Fox London.

     


So I'd like to take the opportunity to thanks Xiaomi UK for always doing a great job with organising these events.

Then we have to make a special thanks to 20th century Fox for allowing us to use your space.

I will soon have more on my trip to the Mi Store to do a video tour and an unboxing video of the Redmi Note 7.

Yeah no more Scuba Steve! Guess I'm the only Adam Sandler out there. My wife hates Adam Sandler so much I have to watch it when she isn't home. Thanks for coming along. Hopefully we have another event with some activities in the future where we can have a good laugh.
