Listed in reserve order (From Worst to Best) Phil, of Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, breaks down a film related subject in order of his own personal enjoyment. This time out: 2016 Blockbusters
(Not Seen: Jason Bourne, The Legend Of Tarzan,)
Worst: The Divergent Series: Allegiant – Part 1
Such a drag of a film, like all the Divergent films they just don’t work enough for me to care.
12. Independence Day Resurgence
The sequel no-one wanted to a film few people care about. Yup this was a sure fire bomb.
11. The Huntsman Winters War
Well it was better than the first one! (Generally anything WITHOUT Kristen Stewart is an instant improvement)
Not the critical mess you’ve been led to believe but far from essential
9. Ghostbusters (2016)
The fact they were women was a mute point when this reboot/remake forgot to include enough laughs to make it a worthwhile experience.
8. Suicide Squad
The trailer of the year delivers one of the bigger let downs. Sadly this promised lots and delivered very little.
7. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out of The Shadows
This could have been worse. (Could have been better too). It had it’s moments and Amell was great.
6. Now You See Me 2
This sequel improved on the original in almost every way… except the point when it crawled up it’s own behind. Up until then however…
5. The Jungle Book (2016)
It’s a good film. It’s also a technically brilliant film. It’s just not a brilliant film in it’s own right. If you see what I mean…
4. X-Men: Apocalypse
Not as good as First Class, better than Days Of Future Past. But probably shows that this franchise need a break for a while…
3. Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice
Forget the critics I liked BVSDOJ a lot. Just don’t worry about the Extended version too much. It just offers length. And in a near 3 hour films already thats not what you need more of.
2. Captain America: Civil War
The war was too civil and further signs of Marvel’s halo starting to slip are present but this is still top notch blockbuster fare.
Best: Star Trek Beyond
Better than Wrath of Into Darkness, not QUITE as good as JJ’s reboot. Beyond offers a celebratory 50th anniversary offering that is just what the doctor ordered. Summer 2016’s bets blockbuster !
