From Dusk Till Dawn (1996) – A Hall of Fame Quick Capsule Review

Hall of Fame Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
From Dusk Till Dawn remains one of the most nuts films of the 90’s and possibly marked the last great film by both directors Quentin Tarantino and  Robert Rodriguez.  Yes really I went there.  Starting as a typical Tarantino, it’s not until they hit the Titty Twister bar that the film takes a surprising twist. Well not that surprising as the trailer gave it away but still bloody good fun.  Cameos by Tom Savini, Fred Williamson, Greg Nicotero sit along side a career making turn by George Clooney and a ‘What the fuck am I doing here’ look of Harvey Keitel.  Greta script,. superb action and a crotch gun.  What’s not to love.

Best Bit: ‘Everybody be cool.  You be cool.’

Trainspotting – A Classic Quick Capsule Review

Trainspotting – A Classic Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Trainspotting defined a generation.  It’s THAT important as a film. It set the culture for 90’s Britain and showed how to adapt the unadaptable.  It launched careers, cemented Boyle as one of  THE up and coming directors in the UK and sold millions in soundtrack albums.  But more than that is was an adrenaline shot in the arm of the British film industry.  Years later it still stands up as a great film and re-watching it just cemented it further as the classic it is.

Best Bit: Lust for Life!
