Phil’s Top 5… Bruce Campbell Films

Phil’s Top 5… Bruce Campbell 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: Bruce Campbell’s lead/ featured roles!

 

Close but no cigar: Maniac Cop, My Name Is Bruce, Sundown: The Vampire in Retreat

 

5 -Wax Work 2: Lost in Time
Anthony Hickox’s frankly barking sequel is full of ideas even if it’s a bit light on budget.  

 

4 – Bubba Ho Tep
Bruce is old Elvis in a nursing home.  I’ll just leave that there.


3 – Evil Dead

The film that launched a thousand  gurns, gave us the term ‘shemp’ and more importantly the careers of both Campbell and director Sam Raimi.

2 – Army of Darkness
A sillier Evil Dead movie that up’s the camp and plays down the horror, it’s no less effective with Campbell giving an amazing performance. Also it’s so damn quotable.


1 – Evil Dead 2
The Sequel/remake of Evil Dead gives us full Bruce Campbell.  Think one of the Marx brothers on speed.  Funny, violent and essential.

Phil’s Top 5… Three-quels

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: Three-quels!

 

Close but no cigar: Die Hard With A Vengeance, Mission Impossible 3,Back To The Future Part 3, Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade, Harry Potter and The Prisoner Of Azkaban, The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King

 

5 – Army Of Darkness
Army of Darkness is amazing.  It’s camp, silly, funny… it was and still is everything I wanted from a sequel to Evil Dead 2!

 

4 – Star Wars VI:  Return of The Jedi
Yes it has Ewoks.  But it also has great plot twists, epic space battles and a note perfect conclusion to one of the best trilogies of all time.

 

3 – The Good, The Bad And The Ugly
Most people forget this was part of a trilogy but the man with no name rode out one last time in what is the bets of the series for many.

 

2 – Goldfinger
Still seen as the quintessential Bond film by many, Goldfinger set the bar and the format for all Bond films that followed.  Connery defines cool.  

 

1 – Toy Story 3
Toy Story 3 made me cry on several occasions.  It’s a charming, heart breaking and emotionally strong film that deserves it’s place here as the best threequel of all time.

 

 

One Sentence Reviews… Bruce Campbell

One Sentence Reviews… Bruce Campbell

Uncategorized

Looking through my DVD collection there’s a raft of films that due to age, obscurity or general lack of point in doing so will never be reviewed here.

So with that in mind let me re-introduce a semi-regular new feature. 

The one sentence review. The MTV/McDonalds hamburger of reviews… this time BRUCE CAMPBELL films.

ARMY OF DARKNESS
In Bruce’s own words… Groovy

BUBBA HO TEP
Bruce Campbell as Elvis… yes ELVIS!!! What more could you possibly need!

SPIDERMAN 3
“Bad film… great Bruce Campbell cameo!”

ESCAPE FROM LA
Much loathed John carpenter sequel which I actually quite like. Does that make me mad?

MCHALES NAVY
Yes Bruce is in it. But so is Tom Arnold. Which most certainly makes this one to avoid.

SUNDOWN : VAMPIRES IN RETREAT
Little seen Bruce gem. Well worth tracking down…


CONGO
Rubbish talking monkey film which Bruce is in for seconds.

WAXWORK 2: LOST IN TIME
Witty horror comedy from director Anthony Hickox

MANIAC COP
Clasic 80’s horror – gory and violent but frankly now very dated
