9: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986) – Phil’s Top 10 Films

Hall of Fame Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The 80’s did coming of age better than any other decade.  From Stand By Me to The Breakfast Club, it was wall to wall classics.  And none were better than Ferris Bueller’s Day Off , a film filled with wall to wall memorable scenes, quotable lines and iconic characters.  Oh and THAT Ferrari!  Yup if you are looking for a film that typifies the spirit of 80’s filmmaking this is it… and you know what whether it’s being referenced in Spiderman or Deadpool or just in almost every cool TV show (Goldergs, Simpsons, Family Guy… the list goes on) it’s legacy endures from generation to generation.

Best Bit: Twist & Shout, The Beatles and that float

Deadpool 2 – A Quick Capsule Review

Deadpool 2 – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Deadpool 2 is good fun.  Okay it may not quite hit the heights of the original Deadpool but there’s enough action, humour, crudeness and in-jokes to keep even the most hardened of comic book fans happy.  Adding X-Force and Cable was a good shout, with both having plenty of standout moments but as usual it’s Ryan Reynold’s film and he relishes every second he’s on screen. But as good as the film is, it’s the end credit sequence that gets the biggest laughs. So may not win many new fans but those who loved Deadpool will get loads out of this.

Best Bit: End Credits

All Things Film Blog The Blogs

Want to know what the critics think of the latest hot releases but don’t want to have to search for them?  Well look no further as we round up the reviews from 5 of the most influential sources for the latest BIG RELEASE movie.

This time out: Deadpool 2


Overall Critics Say

 


“Although it runs short on plot, Deadpool 2 delivers a sequel that’s crasser, gorier, and funnier than its predecessor.”- 7.8

 

No Published Review – x/5

 

 

“Funnier, filthier, and damn entertaining, Deadpool 2 leaves no stone un-deconstructed: the naughty man-child of the X-Men universe who manages to beat them at their own game.” – 4/5

 

“No matter how far “Deadpool 2” thinks it’s pushing boundaries, it makes sure that even when a gag falls flat, the joke is always on you.”


” But it’s, in my view at least, a downgrade on the first film, both narratively and comedically. It is, though, worth sticking through the end credits…” -3/5

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: Stan Lee cameos!

 

Close but no cigar: The Hulk, Daredevil (2003), Big Hero 6, Captain America: The Winter Solider

5 – Iron man
A case of mistaken identity, Lee is confused for the one and only Hugh Hefner.  To be fair it was an easy mistake to make…

 

4 – Captain America Civil War
“Are you Tony Stank?”.  Genius.  And a very witty comment on delivery drivers in general.

 

3 – MallRats
Not a Marvel film but Kevin Smith’s underrated offering see’s a younger Stan Lee offering advice to Jason’s Lee Brody.  It’s sweet, funny and perfectly placed.

 

2 – Deadpool
Stan Lee as a Strip club DJ. Sold.

 

1 – The Amazing Spider-Man
Stan Lee’s librarian works away as chaos and destruction take place behind him.  It’s funny, well played and perfectly timed.

 

 

Logan – A (Not So) Quick Capsule Review

Logan – A (Not So) Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s (Not So) Quick Capsule Review:

Logan is a violent film.  If you are expecting the standard PG-13 rated X-Men franchise cartoon action and happy endings then this may not be for you.  Because what you have here is a full on R rated swear fest with some pretty hardcore claws through the face, arm ripping off, Wolverine action that comic book fans have been waiting for since the character first stepped onto the big screen.

A sequel of sorts to the whole X-Men universe but without ever needing to be propped up on the weight of the series mythology, Logan takes the ball that Deadpool threw out last year and runs with it.  Deadpool showed that there was a huge market for a more mature comic book adapation and whilst that film added humour to pepper it’s violence, Logan just goes all in on the blood and guts. That’s not to say the film has no laughs.  It does.  But usually they are dark humoured and surrounded by limbs being severed.

Logan is the Unforgiven of superhero films, a latter day John Wayne western that tracks the broken hero of old on one last quest.  It’s moody, it’s full of long drawn out moments and it’s unlike any comic book adaptation you have ever seen.  And this is it’s major strength.  It a world where these films are generic and cookie cutter, Logan takes the format and throws it away. Yeah it keeps elements of what we expect but for the most part the film remains grounded. It feels real.  Turns out director Mangold, who delivered the almost good 2013 Wolverine film, when unshackled from the grasp of the studio can deliver the film we’ve all been waiting for.

As with most X-Men films it manages to both feel part of a wider universe but also manages to have no real connection of any actual continuity, a fact that long time X-Men fans have come to accept (Fox are like the anti-marvel in this regard).  It goes without saying that Jackman, always a high point of the franchise, kills it here untethered  from the family friendly films of old.  He relishes every cuss word, every strike of his claw, every brutal kill.  Patrick Stewart is also commanding in a role that feels like a very natural progression for the character he’s played alongside Jackman for many years.  But it’s newcomer  Dafne Keen who manages to steal the show as X-23.  She’s completely believable in a role that sees here switch from cute kid to murderous rage filled killer.
It’s not all successful.  I’m still not sold on Merchant’s casting who brings his usual one note performance here and the film could easily loose 15+ minutes as several of the action scenes, whilst fun, are repetitive.  It may also been seen as a bit too bleak.

But… the film is good enough for these not to matter.  This is a brave film in a genre that sometimes fails to take enough chances.  It’s not afraid to give conclusions, to be brutal, to show the young X-23 in full on berserker mode.

Despite it’s few faults, the film does more than enough to warrant your attention.  It’s good.  Really good at times.  It’s finally the Wolverine movie we’ve wanted for over 15 years.

Best Bit: Beserker.
