Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Batman: Hush continues DC’s impressive run of animated adaptations of their classic comic book back catalogue.  This time is the seminal Hush storyline which gives us a veritable rogues gallery of Batman villains – from The Riddler, Joker, Scarecrow, Bane and many  more…  and once again you are left wondering why DC live action just doesn’t follow this massively successful template rather than the dross it’s produced.  So no surprises for fans of the original story but for everyone else this is super solid.

Shazam (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

Shazam (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Shazam is the best modern (post Nolan) DCEU film to date.  Okay so other than Wonder Woman that’s still a pretty low bar but regardless Shazam is a genuinely funny, genuinely charming and probably top 10 of the year film with loads to entertain kids and adults of all ages.  Of course it’s the cast that make this work and Zachary Levi especially nails the titular character, with Mark Strong once again laying it down thick and fast as the villain.  Okay so the last thirty minute plus smash-em-crash-em goes on too long (the film really shines in the smaller moments) but it, and you, are having so much fun you can pretty much forgive it. Shazam delivers.  See DC CAN make a good film.
