Went to see Birdman on Sunday, really good film made even better by FACT Cinema in Liverpool where the Screen we saw it in is full of sofa chairs.  No contorting your body into rows of cramped chairs instead you can stretch out and slob out on the sofa like you're at home, pretty cool. 
Birdman has a jittery jazz drum soundtrack throughout giving it an edgy but cool atmosphere along with artistic cinematics, subtle dark humour, slightly surreal fantasy intertwined in gritty reality which simmers on the brink of psychotic meltdown.  Hey I should write film reviews! *no spoilers*
the unexpected virtue of ignorance

I suggest you go and see it.  If you go see it at FACT then try and make sure it's on 'the box' screen, that's the one with all the sofas.  While you're there there's also a nice cafe and some art exhibitions.  A much more satisfying experience than your average junk food fueled generic outing to the odeon.
