Endgame Week: Avengers Assemble (2012) – A Quick Capsule Review

Endgame Week: Avengers Assemble (2012) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Avengers Assemble changed the landscape of modern cinema.  Yup Iron Man was more significant in terms of launching the MCU but The Avengers/ Avengers Assemble showed that a multi-layered set up across multiple films and characters could be brought together in a film that gave (almost) everyone their moment in the sun whilst being coherent, fun and full of memorable moments (and quibble lines). It also nailed the Hulk after multiple miss steps.  Avengers Assemble is still the best of all the Avengers movies and wipes the floor with Justice League.  Essential.

Best Bit: Attack on New York

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Buy

If You Liked this Try: Iron Man, Thor , Captain America

Nativity 2 : Danger In the Manger – A Quick Capsule Review

Nativity 2 : Danger In the Manger – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Nativity 2 : Danger In the Manger is one to miss.  Yup even if you liked the first outing (I was NOT a fan) there’s little to enjoy in this seriously bloated and unfunny sequel.  In fact I offer up that with much tighter editing and a much shorter finale (god so much pointless singing) this film would have least had the fact it was short going for it but now, at just under two hours, it doesn’t even have that. My kid liked it but I feared even she was bored by the end.  Watch one of the many better Christmas movies instead.

Best Bit: Tennant is the best thing here by far

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Avoid

If You Liked this Try: Nativity, Nativity 3: Dude, Where’s My Donkey?, Nativity Rocks

West Of Memphis (2012) – A Quick Capsule Review (Revisited)

West Of Memphis (2012) – A Quick Capsule Review (Revisited)

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review
West Of Memphis is one of the most engaging, tense and fascinating films i have seen in 2012.  Not documentary.  Film.  An unbelievable story, about an unbelievable set of events, Memphis tacks this familiar case from origins up to date, leaving you in no uncertain terms where the filmmakers and their many supporters lay their suspicions.  Emotionally charged and simply brilliant.

Best Bit: That was nearly 3 hours?  Flies past.

Rent, Borrow, Buy, Stream: Buy

If you liked this try: Into The Abyss, Inside Job, Catfish, Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hill

GLOW The Story of The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling  – A Quick Capsule Review

GLOW The Story of The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Few people will remember the crazy antics of GLOW – the Glamorous Ladies Of Wrestling. Even as a wrestling fan of the late 80’s I only have a passing memory.  But this 2012 documentary, released on Netflix on the eve of it’s own dramatised GLOW series, gives you an affectionate look back at the rapping, highly stylised characters behind what was a landmark in wrestling television.  One for fans and non fans alike.

Best Bit: The reunion

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream (On Netflix)

If You Liked this Try: Beyond The Mat, Hitman Hart Wrestling With Shadows, The Rise And Dall Of Fall

Rise Of The Guardians – A Quick Capsule Review

Rise Of The Guardians – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Rise Of The Guardians is a really good film.  It’s full of adventure, humour and epic set pieces with a strong central morality that makes it stand out from the many similar films that are out there.  Also my 7 year old loved it which is usually a good sign that a film has hit the mark.  The characters are well drawn (both in a character sense and a artistic sense) and the film leaves you with a warm feeling by the end.  Great for kids and adults alike.

Best Bit: The elves are brilliant

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream

If You Liked this Try: Epic, Frozen, The Minions Movie
