We Still Kill The Old Way – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: We Still Kill The The Old Way is yet another British crime revenge thriller.  What makes WSKTOW stand out from what is a very crowded field is the combination of a very lean story and a very strong cast.  Heading the cast is British mainstay Ian Ogilvy, shining is a role tailor made for his suave cool. ...

Kung Fu Panda 3 – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: This is strange.  A trilogy of animated films that, for the most part, are probably more consistent than almost ANY other trilogy of movies I’ve ever seen.  Seriously.  Okay so it’s far from high art of the heady heights of Toy Story but man Kung Fu Panda 3 knocks it out the park once again.  Great voice cast, ...

High-Rise – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: High Rise is based on an “unfilmable” book by  J.G. Ballard and directed by sometimes hit sometimes miss British director Ben Wheatley.  Based on this combination, it was most likely that this was either going to be one of the best films ever made or an epic failure. Truth is it falls somewhere between the two, with ... Read More »

Kung Fu Panda 2 – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Kung Fu Panda 2 is an exceptionally made animated film with possibly one of the best voice casts ever put on screen.  A great sequel which, from a technical point of view, steps the franchise up to a new level.  It’s a slight shame then that with a darker story a lot of the originals charm ...

Grimsby – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Critically Sacha Baron Cohen’s worst performing film to date, Grimsby in general however seems to have connected far better with the fans.  Why?  Well because its’ actually pretty funny.  Okay so it doesn’t hit the heights of Borat or Bruno, but there is a hell of a lot to like here as Baron Cohen pushes beyond the levels ...

Eddie The Eagle – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Starring the guy from Kingsman, alongside Wolverine and Christopher Walken, directed by the bloke from Press Gang in a story about a British downhill skier form the 80’s. Well that’s a pitch meeting I’d like to have been at!  Joking aside what a lovely, charming and sweet film it ended up.  Egerton is perfect as the ... Read More »

Everest – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Oh god.  It make takes weeks to climb Everest but that level of endurance doesn’t even come close to what you need to get through this film.  Everest, put in laymen’s terms, is dull as dishwater with characters you don’t acre about doing things sensible people wouldn’t do.  By the end as the climbers succumb to ...
