Alita: Battle Angel (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

Alita: Battle Angel (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Alita: Battle Angel is a total mess.  Yup it’s 15 years plus in development for filmmaker James Cameron, who turns over directorial duties to the unreliable Robert Rodriguez but sadly still carried writing the script.  Seriously if after 15 years you can’t get a better script that this, then Avatar 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9  stand no hope. Mahershala Ali does that thing actors do now where they get nominated for an Oscar just months away from starring in a totally bollocks film (see: John C Riley, Eddie Redmayne) in a cast that features both box office repellants Ed Skrein and Jai Courtney.  From its non-ending ending, to its ‘did they REALLY just write that’ script, across to its piss poor CGI and clunky directing this film does almost everything wrong.  Please avoid.

Best Bit: My 2 minutes toilet break which gave me a nice break from the film

Cinema, Stream, Avoid: Avoid

Phil’s Top 5… Billion Dollar Films that are, actually, rubbish

Phil’s Top 5… Billion Dollar Films that are, actually, rubbish

Uncategorized

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: Billion Dollar Films that are rubbish

 

Close but no cigar: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest , Transformers: Dark of the Moon 

 

5 – Minions
I get it.  I loved Despicable Me as well. But Minions just wasn’t funny. I get WHY this made so much but REALLY???

 

4 – Titanic
It’s aged badly but was it really ever that good?  No.  One of the most successful films of all time is badly written, overwrought and sooooo long.  Also I just didn’t care. I was more upset that the boat got hurt…

 

3 – Avatar
Oh god.  It’s just so overblown and overlong.  It also reintroduced the 3D craze.  The sequels are incoming.  Some 12 + years after the originals.  Can’t. Wait.

 

2 – Pirates Of The Caribbean – On Stranger Tides
The weakest of all the Pirates films (yup I know – some low bar there) is also one of it’s most successful.

 

1 – Transformers: Age Of Extinction
Oh god.  This made so much money and is just so bad.  Really.  It’s fucking terrible.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets – A Quick Capsule Review

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets isn’t quite the car crash you have been led to believe. In fact if you consider it to be some kind of belated sequel to The Fifth Element, you can start to forgive it’s some what less successful moments and enjoy those occasions when it does actually work.  Besson delivers a visually stunning film for sure, a real one off.  He just forget to deliver a story to match, a reasonable run time or a cast who can, like, act.  But for every moment it goes a bit Ruby Rhod, there are others that leave you mouth open.  So a mixed bag but one you should find JUST about enough to enjoy in.

Best Bit: The opening

If You Liked this Try: The Fifth Element, Flash Gordon, Avatar
