The Wolf Of Wall Street – A Hall Of Fame Capsule Review

The Wolf Of Wall Street – A Hall Of Fame Capsule Review

Hall of Fame Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The Wolf Of Wall Street is a perfect partner of Goodfellas and Casino – a trilogy about greed, crime and excess. And whilst it doesn’t quite hit the heights of those classic Scorsese films, Wolf is probably one of the best movies the director has made in over a decade.  But for as good as the direction and craft is, its the cast that sell this film.  Margot Robbie debuts and makes an immediate impression, DiCaprio delivers a career best performance and Johnna Hill steels almost every scene he’s in.  The film is uncomfortable watching, as horrible people do horrible things not always getting the comeuppance they deserve but rather than glamorising this, Scorsese manages to reflects the true life story of the thousand of Wolf’s on the hundred’s of Wall Streets around the world. One of the best movies of this decade and gets better with each repeated watch.

Best Bit: Ludes.

In this regular feature we go places few others dare… by spoiling the twist from some great (and not so great) films. So if you haven’t seen the film in question… don’t look!

No really.  Don’t.

Phil’s Top 5… 21st Century’s most re-watchable films

Other Cr*p Top 5

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out:  21st Century’s most re-watchable films

 

Close but no cigar: Ocean’s 11, The Avengers, The Bourne Ultimatum, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Dredd

 

5 – The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy
Okay a LITTLE cheat here but these films really do make one long film.  And man for near 12 hours of film that are incredibly re-watchable.

 

4 – Harry Potter & The Philosophers Stone
The film that kicked it all off is still magical to this day.  From it’s charming cast to it’s often scary moments, this film set the tone for decades worth of films and merchandise that followed.

 

3 – Guardians of the Galaxy
By far Marvel’s most re-watchable film.  It’s funny, clever and charming whilst never forgetting what it is.

 

2 – Skyfall
Possible the best Bond film (at least on par with Goldfinger & License To Kill), Mendes does EVERYTHINg right here.

 

1 – The Dark Knight
Nolan’s second Batman film is quite simply the best film of the 20th century so far for me – a film that is so much more than just the excellent performance by Ledger.
