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. ...

Cabin Fever (2016) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Ugh.  If ever a remake didn’t need to be, this “Lets use the exact script and almost film shot of shot” version of Eli Roth’s original Cabin Fever rates right up there with that horrid Psycho movie.  Nothing here really works, much like it didn’t the first time.  Vapid characters, piss poor script and scares right ...

Blog: Call me Lucky – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Barry Crimmins is not a comedian you’ve probably heard of.  But, sadly, the story of how he the renowned firebrand comedian is.  A film that covers abuse, betrayal and everything in between, Call Me Lucky goes deep into the psychology of a what makes a comedian.  It’s not always easy, it’s not always fun but it ...

Blog: Legend – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Ultimately Legend is a film that is made or broken on it’s performances and in this case what you have is probably one of Tom Hardy’s best as he plays both Ronnie and Reggie Kray.  Aside from that simply stunning central performance the rest of the film is a bit hit and miss.  With a voice ...

Blog: Triple 9 – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: So close yet so far… how do you take a good idea, an exceptional cast and a sometimes impressive director and end up with a tepid, disappointing and ultimately hollow film that’s much less than the sum of it’s parts?  Well thats the biggest mystery of all around Triple 9, the John Hellcat directed crime corruption ...

Blog: Daddy’s Home – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Okay this shouldn’t work.  A cheap feeling lowest common denominator comedy starring I still don’t get him Will Ferrell and really, in a comedy? Mark Wahlberg.  Yet oddly (and purely down to the chemistry between the leads) this, mostly does work. Okay it’s far from the sparkling wit of a Woody Allen film but this film has ... Read More »

Blog: London Has Fallen – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review: Where as ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ was a fun if silly action film, London Has Fallen ejects all that was pleasurable about the original and replaces it with poor cgi, a terrible over ernest script and Gerard Butler pissing away any last resemblance of talent he had left.  A dirty, violent and nasty film with pretty dubious ...
