Ant Man – A Quick Capsule Review (Revisited)


Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Ant Man isn’t what you expect.  For all those who (wrongly) complain that all the Marvel film are the same, here you have a heist movie come buddy comedy which (for the most part) separates itself from the wider Marvel universe and just sets about making …

Sicario – A Quick Capsule Review (Revisited)


Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Wow Sicario was rather unexpected.  What a film – a tense, brutal and at time uncompromising look at the war against drugs on the borders of America.
