Pontypool (2008) – A Quick Capsule Review

Pontypool (2008) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
A unique spin on the Zombie thriller, Pontypool ALMOST pulls it off. The problem here is neither budget (of which there was little of) or cast (who are great) it’s more the overall tone.  It doesn’t know whether it wants to be scary or funny, ultimately failing to be either to any great degree.  So what you are left with them is a highly competent, well imagined low budget film that was entertaining enough but promised os much more.

The Stand (1994) – A Quick Capsule Review

The Stand (1994) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Stephen King’s The Stand is a long book and the 90’s mini series is an equally long show, clocking in at over 6 hours.  And much like a lot of King’s work it’s not immune to filler, feeling at least an hour too long.  That said considering its age and budget, The Stand is still pretty effective even if it has dated poorly at times.  The first 2 parts are the strongest and the ending still feels out of place but overall I really enjoyed revisiting The Stand especially considering the world we are now in!

28 Days Later (2002) – A ’31 Films Of Halloween’ Quick Capsule Review

28 Days Later (2002) – A ’31 Films Of Halloween’ Quick Capsule Review

Hall of Fame Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Tense, scary and raw 28 Day’s Later for me is one of the best horror films ever made.  Even 17 years later it remains one of the most unsettling films ever made.  Danny Boyle, coming off a run that included Trainspotting and The Beach once again showed that he is a director not bound by genre.  Handheld, shot on low fi digital video and with a limited budget, Boyle creates a film that feels as real as it get that adds visceral gore, an epic score and a compelling twist on the then very worn Zombie film.  Add to that career making performances by Cillian Murphy, Naomie Harris & Christopher Eccleston as well as an impressive debut by writer Alex Garland and you have a near perfect storm.  Essential viewing.

Dawn of The Dead (2004) – A ’31 Films Of Halloween’ Quick Capsule Review

Dawn of The Dead (2004) – A ’31 Films Of Halloween’ Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The 2004 remake of Dawn of The Dead is the template for HOW to remake a classic film.   Rather than just copy beat for beat, Snider (never known for his subtly) flips the tone, landing on a film that is as much action as it is horror.  And it works.  Yes for sure it has horror moments (Zombie baby anyone) but it’s in the action horror beats that the film really shines.  The cast do well (Rhames and Polly especially) and the fast zombies really helps the film keep a pace and sense of dread that older Zombie movies don’t always have. As a lover of Zombie films and Dawn of The Dead I was possibly the most cynical about this film.  But Snider delivered and the film remains highly watchable all these years later.

Secret Cinema: Casino Royale (2019) – A Not So Quick Capsule Review

Secret Cinema: Casino Royale (2019) – A Not So Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: I’ve always wanted to attend a Secret Cinema. I missed Star Wars, Back To The Future and 28 Days later (all top 15 films for me) but when the opportunity came up to be Bond, and especially within the gambling world of Casino Royale, I thought this was the one. This is my Secret Cinema.  I should have waited. 

Secret Cinema Casino Royale is a massive bust. From it’s hot as hades out out London location to its total lack of immersion and cohesion, it feels little more than an over subscribed under planned money grab.  A way to funnel you into the expensive drinks and food (actually not bad tasting). An hour in I had no idea what I was meant to do, where I was meant to go or how to get involved. It was overcrowded, the few actors where swamped and few seemed to care. 

By hour two when the Casino was revealed I was bored and less than excited by the overcrowded two play tables and bad dancing on stage. The best dressed competition was a real low point. 

At least the film is still one of Bonds best. 

But as it turns out this is also one of the worst way to watch a movie. For a company priding itself on its ‘experience’ and love of film the constantly getting up to go to the bar drunk people, noisy bar area and crashing catering staff almost take away the fun of seeing the film on the big screen. The interactive actors did little to enhance the experience. Oh and worst of all the version they projected here skipped numerous times. Criminal. 

Overall a big double oh no and certainly not an experience I’d recommend.
