Close but no cigar: Terminator Genisys, Speed,The Island, Terminator 2 ,  Children of Men

 

5 – The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers
Gandolf died in the previous film.  Well he didn’t and we know this thanks to the Two Towers trailers.  

 

4 -The Amazing Spiderman 2
A double epic fail here as the the trailer throws in shots of a falling Stacy (thus confirmed her fate) and the final shot of the film with Rhino.

3 – Terminator Salvation
Sam Worthington is a Terminator.  Great twist. If we hadn’t already seen it in the trailer

 

2 – GoldenEye
Sean Bean is dead.  Oh no he isn’t he’s the films big bad.

 

1 – Jurassic Park Fallen Kingdom
EVERY. KEY. MOMENT. Yup between two trailers the film’s narrative is basically laid out for you to see end to end. Including one of the last few shots of the film.

Phil’s Top 5… Underrated Film Directors

Phil’s Top 5… Underrated Film Directors

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: My top 5 Underrated Directors!

 

Close but no cigar: Isaac Florentine, Richard Donner, Neveldine/Taylor

 

5 – Don Siegel
Without Siegel modern cinema would look very different.  From the reboot of Invasion Of The Body Snatchers to an Elvis musical through to a John Wayne western and of course Dirty Harry.  

 

4 -George Miller
Mad Max director Miller doesn’t get much love for his non Mad Max films, but he’s a talented director who has could flip from hardcore action to kids fantasy with ease.  

 

3 – Martin Campbell
The man who twice reinvented the Bond franchise with Casino Royale & Goldeneye, Campbell is adept at high qulaity action on a relatively modest budget.  

 

2 – Joel Schumacher
Yes he made Batman & Robin but aside from his Batman franchise killing, he’s also made some excellent films.   From The Lost Boys to Phone Booth and A Time To Kill, Schumacher when focused can deliver top notch thriller.

 

1 – Tony Scott
From Top Gun to True Romance, from Enemy of The State to Unstoppable Scott was and remains one of my favourite directors.  Sadly no longer with us, Scott delivered top quality blockbusters like no other.

 

 

Phil’s Top 5… Bond Films

Phil’s Top 5… Bond Films

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: Bond Films

 

Close but no cigar: Goldeneye, The Spy Who Loved Me, Dr No, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service 

 

5 – Live And Let Die
Live And Let Die saw Bond go darker and more intimate for the first time and at times felt more like a horror film than a Bond film.  A great villain, a kick ass theme and Moore setting the tone of things to come.

 

4 – Goldfinger
The quintessential Bond film, Goldfinger set the template for every Bond film to follow.  The theme, the title sequence, the bad guy… it’s near perfect.

 

3 – Casino Royale
Daniel Craig knocked it out the park with Casino Royale, returning martin Campbell to the franchise and redefining Bond for a new generation.

 

2 – License To Kill  
Dalton was my favourite Bond growing up.  He brought a degree of real to a franchise that had gone very much off the rails. License To Kill showed what a rouge Bond out for revenge would look like.  The first 15 rated Bond, with blood and violence License To Kill  still holds up well.

 

1 – Skyfall
Controversial maybe but Skyfall set a new bar for Bond films.  It was self referential but without slipping to parody, but still original, exciting and dynamic enough to make you believe there was a place for this dinosaur in the 21st century. And then they made Spectre.

5 – Live & let Die
Far from the late camp of Roger Moore’s era, Live & Let Die is dark and mysterious in places and showed that the producers had finally found a Bond worthy of stepping in to Connery’s shoes.  Shame it all ended in Safari suits and Grace Jones…

 

4 – Casino Royale
Black & white, flash backs, an early pre 007 Bond? Casino Royale took the play book and threw it out.  And damn was it all the better for it.  Consigning the cheese of Brosnan’s later films to history, Casino Royale gave us a Bond film for the 2000’s with a more physical 007 and a more grounded story.

 

3 – License To Kill
Dalton’s two films are much maligned by many but Licence To Kill takes the concept of Bond gone rogue and runs with it.  Darker (it starts with Felix getting eaten by  shark), deadlier and relentless it was the first Bond film to feature Bond getting bloo-y. Awesome villain also.

 

2 – Goldfinger
Goldfinger is the prototypical Bond film.  It set the template for all those that followed and cemented Connery and Bond as icons.  It gave us Bassey, P-ssy Galore and Q’s OTT gadgets.  Bond would never be the same…

 

1 – Skyfall
Skyfall is the perfect Bond film that manages to grow the character of Bond whilst building on the elements we know and love.  So it has gadgets, some top notch action sequences and a camp bad guy.  But it also has heart, charm and reverence to what has gone before.

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
God this film is dull. It’s not terrible.  But it’s so totally unmemorable that a mere few weeks after watching the film, I can barely remember more than one thing about it.  Brosnan is as charismatic as always and it’s kinda neat seeing an aged Spy back in action.  Think a retired 007.  But other than that there’s very little to recommend here, a slow paced, often quite dull spy thriller that seriously lacks the thrills. One to miss.

Best Bit: Brosnan can still kick arse.
