Best Film of 2017: Baby Driver

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Wow.  Having been often luke warm of some of Wrights films (Scott Pilgrim and Worlds End to name but two), Baby Driver arrived with the danger of a great trailer, loads of hype and Wright fans proclaiming it as up there with his best work.  And …

Worst Film of 2017: Fifty Shades Darker

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: A film that makes the original 50 Shades look like Casablanca, Fifty Shades Darker decides to stick with the source material for mostly hilarious results.  This film is about as se– as a over 90’s Bingo night at Pontins and is delivered with all the sophistication and …

Worst Film of 2013: The Host

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: A real nadir of the YA films sub genre, despite a great cast The Host does nothing right.  It’s boring, it treads what was even then overly familiar ground and offers nothing to either it’s target market or anyone else unlucky enough to watch it. One …
